Among recent arrivals at the port of Boston, from the West Indies, is the schooner Brilliant, a vessel which has been for many years engaged in the unique trade of marine curio collecting. She brings a varied assortment of odd and beautiful shells and other sea treasures. Charles Dadley, of Chelsea, owner of the vessel and of the collection, is a son of the late John Dadley, who was the conchologist of the British Museum in London. He made a stop at Newport on his way north, and while there received a visit from the head buyer of Tiffany’s New York house, who secured some of the most beautiful specimens for that concern.

JEWELLER'S SHOP MIRACLE

At the Old Bailey on Thursday two Americans, Arthur Preston Greene and Charles Rorer, were indicted for stealing brooches from New Bond-street jewellers, while Rorer was also charged with receiving jewellery belonging to Tiffany and Co., of Regent-street. The prisoners were arrested in New York, where it was stated a quantity of stolen jewellery was found on them. It was alleged that the jewellery, valued at £300, was abstracted by the man believed to be Rorer, and articles of inferior value placed in gaps in a tray while Messrs. Tiffany's assistant was not looking. It was stated Greene practised the same trick at the New Bond-street jewellers'. Evidence was given to prove Rorer had been wrongfully arrested, and he was accordingly discharged, but Greene was sentenced to five years' penal servitude, and recommended for deportation on the expiration of the sentence. A third man concerned had escaped arrest, and was reported to be in America.

The funeral of F. B. Conover, president of the Tiffany Studios, of 391 Madison Ave., whose body was found last Saturday in the bathroom of his apartment, 876 Park Ave., was held yesterday (Tuesday) from his late residence. Mr. Conover, it is said, was found on the bathroom floor with his throat slashed by a razor. The studio head was born in Monmouth County, N. J., and was 64 years old at the time of his death. He went with the Tiffany Studios in 1908 as a business executive and became vice-president of the concern. He continued in this office until about eight years ago when he became president. About a year ago, Mr. Conover suffered a nervous breakdown and although still at the head of the studio, remained inactive in business.
