Dictation.-Pearls are found both fastened to the shell and loose in the flesh of the oyster. Sometimes as many as twenty of different sizes are found in one shell. It is thought that some substance like a grain of sand lodges under the mantle of the oyster. It is soon covered with nacre,' or mother-of-pearl. The Chinese partly open the shell, slip under a little lead image of a god, and put the oyster back in the water. A beautiful pearl image is the result. The best pearls are found off the coast of Ceylon and in the Persian Gulf.
