The Genn of North Carolina.
J. A. D. Stevenson- in Jeweler's Weekly.
' Minerals, either common or rare, and
in unusually fine crystals, are to be
found in the piedmont region lying
between 'the Catawba and Yadkin
Being a riativeof this section and an
ardent admirer of all the phenomena
and beauties of nature, these crystals
attracted ray attention in early life, and
the collection and study of them, in
cluding the beautiful modified quartz
fount! herie, convinced me that they
werejof mbre "than usual interest. My
early experience in the placer mines of
North Carolina familiarized me with
the occurrence of such rare minerals
as mbnazite, xenotime, rutherfordite
(ferg;nsonite), zircon, columbite and
titanium in this section, and being
aware of the fact that these are found
itssociated with precious stones in oth
er countries, 1 was impressed with-the
idea that by making systematic search
valuable gems" could be found here;
want of time and opportunity delayed
the sjsarch, however, until 1874, when
I selected this section as the most con
venient for my work. The same indi
cations cross the State from northeast
to southwest; in fact to draw a line on
the map of the United States from Pa-
Tis, Me., to Gainsville Ga., it is snr
prisinjJ to see how near it passes all the
known .gem localities east of the Mis-
Jsly plan of exploring -was to go
among thd people ofHhe country and
eudeavor to interest them in col lectin'
the different crystals found in their re
spective sections. This I have found
an enlsy matter, especially with the chil
dren, as they took hold of the idea read
ily: many of them soon became famil
iar, with the work, and they not onlv
did god service in developing the min
eral resource? of the State, but acquir-
e.l a knowledge of mineralogy'and nat
ural history. - -
So far I have failed to find the dia
mond here, but I attribute my failure
to the want of ii better method of
search, as all indications show that it
might b2 found m Meciden burg, Lin
coln,! Rutherford, Burke, McDowell
and Franklin counties of the State.
i CORUNDUM GEMS.
Although I have discovered humor
ous localities in Iredell county where
beautiful pink and t?lue corundum is
found, a faithful search has so far fail
ed "to discover the real ruby or sapphire;
quite a number, however, have been
found in the corundum mines of Macon
The first beryl suitable for cutting
was found early in 1875 at the locality
now known as- the ''Emerald and Hid-
denite Mine" It was a beautiful aq
uamarine, but only apart of it was
suitable for a gem. A few weeks later
I obtaineil at this locality my first
emerald it was smaU and rather
op iqueIhi1' f ne color and the file
like markings' on its planes were very
distinct. During 1870 I collected two
others at the same locality; their -color
was pot quite so good as the first, but
one of them .was i more transparent.
During 1877 Mr. J. W. Miller brought
me two emeralds, found oji his moth
er's farrnVtvv'o miles northeast of the
"Emerald asd Hiddenite Mine;" they
were of gdod color and quite transpar
ent, bat very rough on the surface.
Thispromisin locality is still uiide
velorjed. During the year 1883 Mr. J.
0. Lackey brought me thirty-six
pmemlds which he foundin a
vein of dark mien, on his farm a
short distance south west of the "Emer
ald and Hiddenite Mine." Their color
varivd from light emerald green to col
orless. D Parliew found oa his farm,
in the Bentley settlement, Sugar Loaf
township, Alexander county, vl small
emerald of good color and transparency.
He sent it to a fricrid in Cincinnati,
Ohio. A party who visitel the locality
fqrjne found in the same neighbor
hood; a very pretty small aquamarine.
A Mr. Stafford brought me a fragment
of a aquamarine fromv near Duley
Shoal, Caldwell county. It appered to
have been broken from a 'Targe crystiil
iind cut a beautiful; gem.' j -
I have collected a number of yellow
J beryls on the Price lands uear Poplar
Springs, Alexander county. They
make very pretty cabinet specimens
but are not suitable for cutting. Blue
beryls occur on D. R. Lackey's farm,
Sharp's Mill, same county, but none
suitable for cutting. On January 12,
last, a farmer brought raean aquamar
ine,"which he found while plowing a
field near Little River church, Alexan
der county. It i3 the most wonderful
yet found" in the United States. It
weighs 2o ounces, lias a nne color, is
quite transparent and will cut a num
ber of fine.gems. It was found in the
soil. The surface soil in the locality
consists largely of sand, which is prin
cipally fragments of opalescent quartz.
The subsoil is a very red clay. At my
solicitation a mining engineer recently
visited the locality and found embed
ded in a small boulder ef opalescent
quartz a fine crystal of yellow beryl,
partlyauitable for cutting, alsoin some
of the same boulders unusually fine
crystals of black tourmaline. He is of
the opinion that these quartz boulders
were the original matrix of . the aqua
marine. Beryls s iitab!e for cutting
have been collected by Dr. C. D.Smith,
in Macon county.
Mr. Ray, of Burnsville, has collect-
ea in i ancey ana iviitcneii counties a
number of beryls suitable for cutting.
The late Prof. John T. Humphrey
found, in Burke county, a crystal of
beryl. It nras small, transparent and
a remarkably fine specimen. Last
year a colored man brought me an

found in April, 1879, at the "Emerald

crystal convinced me, however, that

On September 17, 1870, W. E. Hid
den came to Statesville. He was very
much interested in my collection of
gems .and other minerals, and he-and I
visited this locality. We made a bur
ned examiiiatioh of it. In March,
1880,- he returned to North Carolina
and leased the property, which he after
ward purchased, and- organized a com
pany and commenced mining for gems.
VVork has ba?n carried on at intervals
up to this time. The first year a large
number of crystals and fragments of
Hiddenite that cut fmesems were found
and sold at good prices. Others have
been found since, and they also were
readily sold. iThe demand for good
specimens seems to increase. A con
siderable numbru of enier.i's have
been found in this mine, some of them
very fine crystals, which furnish light
colored, splendid gems. Although the
mine is quite expensive to work, I be
lieve the gem-learing rocks to be inex
haustible. RUTILATED QUARTZ SAGENITE.
I have located this variety of gem
stone at a number of places. The first
locality which 1 found it was on the
farm of Mr. Geo. Wilson, four miles
south of Taylorsyille, Alexander coun
ty. . This locality yielded only a few
good specimens. The best locality is
on the farm of Mr. Daniels, in the
northwestern part of Iredell eounty,
near the lexander line. Good speci
mens are also found on the adjoining
farm, owned by the Misses Bennett, al
so on the farms of Gaston Smith,
Thomas Milier and J. F. Adams, in
Alexander countv. These localities
have yielded about two hundred good
specimens, besides-a large number of
inferior ones. The pink colored quartz
inclosing golden yellow needles of ru
tile are the most beautiful. None of
these localities are exhausted, and no
doubt other in north Iredell and Yad
kin counties could be found, as rutile
is quite abundant in this section. The
late Prof. John T. Humphrey found
godd pieces of this gem material in
Catawba and Burke countiesj
I have collected crystals of this min
eral from the size of a small needle to
over an inch across and varying in col
or from a crimson red to bl ick. The
localities where it is found are too nu
merous to mention here. Sotne of the
finest crystals known were found near
Crouch's mill, in Alexander countv.

Although garnet crystaU are very

found ner the Taylorsville road, on
the Carson place, Alexander county.

INCLOSURES IN QUARTZ.
In addition to the ruttiated quartz
already mentioned, there are other ill
closures in the quartz found here,
which are sometimes used as

: actinolite, asbestos, tourmaline, hem
atite, liquid inclosures, &c. The md-
I lhed quartz occurring in this seetion,
! though not classed as a gem, has with
the past few veurs attracted a irreat
deal of attention from scientists. Quite
a number of years ago I sent speci
mens of these crystals to persons both
in this country and in Europe who are
interested in the study. L. Stadmiller,
of New Haven, Conn.j was the first to
figure them. He sent the drawings to
me, pointed out the most interesting
features connected with them. Al
though many years of my life have
been spent collecting in this section, I
am, unable to estimate what f uti r . and
more thorngh examination, backed by
capital, may develop, i Where the sur
face "finds" have been so rich au.d in
teresting. no one would venture to pre
dict what underground work might de
velop. There is a vast territory yet
unexplored. The many difficulties
which formerly confronted the explor
er have been in a great measure over
come, and to-day he would find it a
pleasant pastime, with every chance of
making his work profitable.
Gem mining in this section is still in
its infancy, but growing steadily, and
many new discoveries are being made.
The finding of a real diamond at Dv-
sartville, McDawell county, in 1SSG,
and the large aquamarine lately found
near Little River church, Alexander
county, was a surprise to the most
sanguine. This should clear away any
lingering doubts in the miuds of some
as to the existence of valuable gems
in North Carolina. I am under many
obligations to friends and scientists for

Cleveland's Parting: Words.
SUff Correspondence New York Herald.
Washington, Feb. 27, 1889.
I have had a long, and I need not add
a very interesting talk with President
Cleveland this morning. It was really
a talk, for Mr. Cleveland objects to- u
formal interview. He preferred to chat
in a familiar and friendly way about
the various topics which involve the
national welfare, and then give me a
free pen with which to describe both
what I saw and wh.tt I heard.
As I sat looking out of the south
window of the spacious room in which
he has worked during the last four
years the occasion seemed to have an
impressiveness not easily described.
But before me sat the outgoing Chief
Magistrate of the people while all
around were being erected the plat
forms from which the incoming Presi
dent will be welcomed.
From these rooms in one of which
Mr. Cleveland sat taking an account of
stock, as it were, and with a kind of
hurried deliberation closing up the ac
counts of his administration that he
may hand the balanced books over to
his successor how many Presidents
have guided the destinies of the repub
lic through good and ill report! The !
memories with which the air is redo
lent is almost oppressive and they
come to mind with such a startling
rush of incident tragedy, comedy,
melodrama that one becomes almost
bewildered. The very walls of the
White House resound with the echoes
of the past and- the prophecies of the
future. What fears, what hopes, what
strivings of political partisanship it
In an adjoining room, sat Lincoln
when the deep rumblings of national dis
content were heard, destined to shape
themselves into a tornado that swept
a million men into their graves. Af
ter him came Johnson, who so strange
ly bungled the work of reconstruction;
and then Grant, with the laurels of
many hard-won victories; and last of
all Cleveland, whose administration
has been marked by a national policy
under which the South has lost the
bitternpss of the old days and taken
on the spirit of unity and the spirit of
the Union. These rich memories
chased each other through my mind as

years, and then declared his hopejhat'

necessitates a great many personal

That Mr. Cleveland has been a rug
ged worker and has not spared himself
is easily admitted. He has spent him
self freely, and given his nights as
well as his days to the details of his of
fice. Two oVlock, he tells me, is the
time he sets for retiring, but it fre
quently happens that the clock strikes

leave his desk.
Still, he shows no wear or tear.
Whether it is that he has a peculiar
capacity for getting through with the
labors of the day without the usual
loss of vitality, or whether his calm
temperament enables him to preserve
his health in spite of tumultuous sur
roundings, it might be hard to sav.
The fact remains, however, that he is
hardy, sturdy, clear-headed and physi
cally unharmed by the constant and
persistent strain to which he has been
so long subjected.
FUTURE OF THE REPUBLIC.
I was anxious to know what he
would say of the future prospects of
the republic. He has occupied a van
tage ground from which he could view
the whole country and sweep the hor
izon from Maine to .California and from
the lakes to the Gulf. I therefore led
the conversation to subjects bearing
upon this question. He spoke with the
utmost frankness. He said:
"I am a Democrat, with all the
word implies. I am. moreover, an in-
tense Democrat-in that I believe that
the true principles of the Democratic
party are essential to the highest well
being of this country.
"During the war," he added, "the
Republican party had supreme and nn
ouestioned control of public policy. No
one will qnestion the service it render-
1 I ii " i L
ed at that time, but the rank and hie
of the array was composed largely
Democrats. The generals who won
renown were also many of them Dem-
oerab. While there were among the
Republicans a smalL minority of hot
heads who found fault with the Lincoln
administration, and among the Demq
crats an equal number of fossils whose
timidity was a natiorial misfortune, the
great bulk of the people from Eat to
West, without respect to party affilia
tions, were solidly patriotic and ready
forany necessary amount of sacrifice
for the preservation of our institutions.
It. Is fplly to claim that the war was
fought either by Republicans or Dem
ocrats; it was fought by the American
citizens of the North. .
But it is plain, he said with great se
riousness, that nnder Republican ad
ministrations there has been given a
fresh and dangerous impetus to mo
nopolies, trusts and combines. x Im
mense fortunes have been accnnmlat-
ed, unknown injhedaysof our fathers.!
ihey are a peculiarity of post-bell am
times, and the control which they ar
bitrarily exercise over the cost of ex
istence is a direct menace to the wel
fare, of the workingmen and of our far
mers. iHE BELIEVES IN THE MASSES.
Mr. Cleveland has verr decided
opinion on this subject. The party,
uw uetiares, wnicn willingly encour
ages these evil tendencies is not worthy
to be called the party, of the people
as a Democrat, the President be
lieves strongly in the masses, and has
a very large sympathy for the working
classes. Whatever interferes with their
interests interferes with the great ma
jority of our citizens.
A combine or trust may begin with
the single purpose of makinsr money
without oppression of the people, but
it tends to put the consumers of otir
country under tribute to a greedl con

There never was a time when wise
counsels and harmonious action in the
Democratic party were more impor
tant to the people of the country tnan
now. ' -
THE SOUTHERN PROBLEM.
On my suggesting the race question
in the South, Mr. Cleveland naturally
hesitated before answering, because,
as he said, it is the most delicate sub
ject now before the people.
The South has partly recovered from
the effects of the war and for twenty
years and more has been putting all
its energies into the soil and into man
ufactures. It has risen from a condi
tion approaching ruin to a degree of
financial and practical enterprise
which renders it in some .industries
sharp competitor with the North. The
sudden and marvelous recovery of the
South in industrial interest is a fact in
which the whole nation may well take
pride. And this feeling of pride would
be universal if the professions so often
made of complete reconciliation and a
desire to ioin-in a heartv united effort
to work out our destiny as a nation are
The new relations between the
whites and the negroes at the South
are gradually arranging themselves.
It must, however, be a work of time
and of a long time before an entirely
satisfactory result can be reached.
While ilr. Cleveland believes that
manifest wrongs, either to whites or
blacks, should not be tolerated, he has
by ho means lost confidence in the fair
minded average public opinion of the
South to do the-best which tbe circum
stances allow. They know the situa
tion in all its baarings and to distrust
their ability to deal with it is to dis
trust their sincerity and fairness.
GOOD NATURED IN DEFEAT.
When I suggested some question as
to thedifference between the incoming
and the outgoing administrations, Mr.
Cleveland was quick with "an answer.
Evidently he is in nowise disturbed by
the fortunes of political warfare whicn
have betallen mm. lie is oownrignt
good natured over his defeat.
The people alone, he said have a
right to rule the country, and their will
is law. There is no appeal from their
decision, and there should be none.
What they desire they will have, and
ought to nave.
While the President firmly believes
that the tariff reform which theDemo-
I cratic partv stands for is for the best
interests of tne wnoie people, ana wnue
he neither sees nor desires to see the
least disposition on the part of the
i Democratic nartv to recede from the
I positi6n which it has taken, he accepts
the result of the election with the pla
cidity of the philosopher and the calm
ness which the minority should always

Cleveland has no fear that the
Democratic policy of an adjustment of
the tariff to the wants and circum

work for their living, with a due regard
to all other legitimate interests mna en

itself to the A mericair people. , , What
will elt the people and make their
burdens lighter is what they will have

that they will not discover the way to
this end or that they will fail to attach
themselves to the party which contin

MHold on there, man, you'll kill
yourself," exclaimed Dr. Shoemaker.in .
the receiving ward of the Pennsylrania
Hospital last evening as Michael Han
ley, a patient, picked np an ordinary
tumbler and took a bite from the side.
4That won't hurt me, said the man, .
as he chewed and swallowed the class
and rolled out his tongue to show that
it was not concealed in his mouth.
"This is only my usual lunch," contin
ued the man as he bit out another gen
erous chunk of glass.
"This is jsiraply suicide, and yoa
can't eat any more," -said the doctort
as the man was about starting in on
the last section and the fragment was
taken from him.
"I tell you what. Ill do," said Mike;
"111 eat that jar for five rents, and'
won't charge you anything if I don't
'teat every bit of it. You'll have to give
me plenty of water, though, for that
kind of stuff's very sweet, as he picked
up a pint porcelain jar ironi ine sur
geon's tray j !
"We don't want to see you kill
yourself, and, besides,- it wouldn't jay
to give you money to eat a inr worm
half a dollar," 4
"Don't be afraid of me killing my
self. You! fellows don't know my ca
pacity. I'll -tell you what I'll do. I'll
drink water faster than you can band
it tome." , - ;..
"I'll give you a drink if that's what
you want," said Nurse McCanft, as he
moved toward the cooler, and the man's
capacity for drink was tested.
McCann i produced two good sized
tumblers and started the water. Han
ley drained the glasses aud landed
them back as fast as they could be
filled, until seventeen had been empti
ed into his capacious maw, and the
watering process was peremptorily
stopped by the doctor. Mike was then
dismissed, and the last seen of him be
was trying to borrow a nickel from one
of the nurses at the door. 1
By request of Judge Graves we copy
the taw in this State regarding tbe ap-
prenticing of children, which ought to
be carefully studied by both parents j
and guardians. The law referred to is -section

As it is the manly man who wins
and satisfies a good woman, so it is the '
womanly-woman who pleases and rei
tains the desirable man. She need not
be soft or silly, or weak or- nervous
she may be strong, vigorous, -'resolute
and brave; but, whatever she is, she
must be womanly in order to please.
