Tbe stone la estimated at nearly 55,0tMi,0OO, although It Is practleslly price). Undoubtedly if ever sold It will go to add to tbe great crown Jewels of England ns the English ginrrrnment would exert sufficient pressure In prevent the Carew ruby from leaving soil. The rnhy Is hundreds of years old and must have passed through ninny bloody scenes during the middle age while It was owned hy the emperors of Indln and Persia. The unlqoe Inscriptions engraved upon It prove that It wan at one tln.e In the possession of tbe fammi founder of the vast Mogul empire In Indln.

It la supposed that he stole the Jewel after murdering the twe guards who always watched tbe Fenian crown Jewels. The true story Is unknown. Lord Carcw, 100 years ago, bought the Jewel for 1200,000, a mere pittance compared to tha real value of the Carew ruby. A Tree That Sever Blown Dew.
