Its quays are the city's front doors, with steps always freshly scrubbed. 1'nder brilliant summer sun, even the cargoes of many of the harbor's sailing craft, moored in front of royal palace, town hall, and house of parliament, glisten, for they are laden with countless cords of silver birch, the city's fuel. Every year, In gorgeous midsummer floral regalia, Stockholm stands faultlessly groomed to receive only a few score American visitors, whiie other continental capitals, Included In customary tourist itineraries, are athrong with thousands from western shores. The average traveler does not decide casually upon a trip to Stockholm, nor, unless he comes directly from New York by ocean route, does the American always arrive in the most amiable frame of mind.

Sapphire, the blrthstone of September, may be golden, yellow, pink, brown, black, gray, blue, green or violet, and occasionally has no color at all! The term, to the lapidary, means any corundum except the ruby, and includes the oriental amethyst, the oriental peridot and the oriental topaz as well as the brilliant, lustrous blue stone to which people through the ages have given the title "sapphire." Corundum is a combination of oxygen and aluminium, created In the volcanic fires of the dawn of time, says Nature Magazine of Like Cleopatra, "age Washington. cannot wither nor custom stale" Its infinite variety, and yet the wide range of colors Is caused merely by minute impurities which crept Into the atomic structure of the stone.

F.plphanes, a writer f the Sixteenth century, has written that the vision Moses saw on the Mount was within the crystal of a sapphire, and that the original Tables of the Law were made of the same material.
