A HAUNTED NECKLACE. A story of a haunted necklace, which for- merly belonged to the Maharani of Cooch Behar and is supposed to bring -bad fortune to everyone connected with it, comes from India. The necklace is composed, of pearls and turquoises, and while it was in the Maharani's possession she was robbed of a quantity of valuable jewellery. The Maha- raja, too, lost some of his best racing ponies by death and breakdowns. Things were beginning to look serious, and the advice of a pundit was sought. He pre- scribed a change of ownership and a voyage across the sea in order to break the spell. The necklace, it is stated, was then given to a lady in England, As a result, the Maharaja has begun to win races again, and the Maha- rani has recovered her stolen property. The present owner of the necklace, how. ever, has been the victim of persistent ilI- fortune from the day that it came into her possession.
