"A lady, observing the loss from her ring of a small but valuable stone, told her servant, who immediately said she would look for it, and left the room; she quickly returned with a lighted oil lamp, a dust pan and broom. She began sweeping the room all over most diligently; and looking by the light of the lamp carefully through the dust, she soon produced the tiny but precious stone. The eyes of the poor woman brightened when she discovered and restored it; and then, going to the veranda, she told the rest of the servants how she had found the stone which had been lost."  Anon.
