Certainly, if her startling utterance had had any foundation in fact, she had cause for fright, for the necklace of pearls revealed by the raising of the lid was so long, and each pearl of such size, that the young expert, accustomed as he is to the everyday sight of magnificent jewels, held his breath a moment in in voluntary admiration. Yet as he looked he detected some thing strange in the appearance of the ,pearls. That peculiar 'white, which ex ists only in pearls, and which is so dis tinct from anything els...
