Ablaze with Diamonds.
The most conspicuous toilet at the last state ball at Buckingham Palace was worn by the Duchess of Leinster. It was her night to wear diamonds, and she fairly glittered in them. She wore diamond epaulets, a diamond corselet, coila of lightly mounted diamonds among the laces of her wondrous gown, a diamond tiara, diamond bracelets, a diamond ceoklaoe and more diamond brooches and buckles than the dazzled beholder could count. And yet this woman does not live for drass alone. It is related to her credit that at Maynooth, Ireland, she has established an industrial school for women and girls, where tbe pupils are taught various industries. The ducheß3 herself at times teaches a class in the institution, and the verdict is that she ought to cover herself with diamonds if she wants to. 'Law is tha jjjjj^^^^^^lfce greatest
