How Watch Cases are Made.
A plate of solid gold 14 2-10 karats
fine is soldered on each side of a plate of
hard nickel composition metal, and the
three &ro then passed between polished
steel rollers. From this plate the various
parts of the cases backs, centers, beicls,etc.
arc cut and shaped by dies and formers.
The gold is thick enough to admit of all
kinds of chasing, engraving, and engine
turning. The composition metal gives it
needed strength, stiffness and solidity, while
tho vritten guarantee of tho manufacturers
warranting each case to wear twenty years
proves that it contains all the gold that
can possibly be needed. This guarantee
is given from actual results, as many of
these cases have been worn perfectly smooth
by years of use without wearing through
the gold. Dcncgci, H., Dm. II. lsso.

Then she turned it right side up and

And she saw what!
Nothing very alarming.
Only a thick sheet of embossed
paper, stamped with a monogram in
blue and gold, incomprehensible as
monograms usually are.
A woman's letter, decidedly, written
in a pretty, scrawling, irregular hand,
unmistably a woman's.

For a few moments Dolly's eyes,

A SKETCH OF HIS LIFE.
Upon the accession of Vice Presi-
ent Arthur to tho l'residcnoy in Sep
tember, 1881, the Senate at its next
session elected as its president nro tem
pore David Davis of Illinois, whoso
term of oflico as Senator expired on tho
ad of March, 1883. Just before tho
xpirntion of his term Mr. Davis re
signed tho Presidency of tho Senate,
nnu ueo. i. i!,rtmnnd, senator from
Vermont was elected as his successor,
Senator Edmund's Senatorial term not
expiring until 1887. This procceduro
was necessary in order that tho Presi
dency of the Senate should not bo va
cant during tho interim between tho
orty-seventh and Forty eight Con
gresses. Had Air. Davis not resigned,
the expiration of Ins senatorial term
would havo left the country without a
legal successor to President Arthur in
caso tho latter had died beforo tho Sen
ate of the Forty-eighth Congress had
elected a presiding officer pro tern. Mr.
Edmunds therefore was practically
mado Vice-President of the United
States, and will remain such until tho
present Senato elects a successor.
It is now well-known m ofhcial cir
cles that Senator Edmunds does not
wish to continue in his present position
as presiding oflicer of tho Senate, it bo
ng Ins desire to accompany 'Ins family
to the Bermudas for tho health of his
ife. The Republican maioritv havo
therefore indicated a disposition to
hoose the subject ot our illustration,
lur. lulmutid's successor, and this
ovent seemed only to await tho recov
ery of Senator Anthony from his late
illness and his appearance upon tho
lloor of the Senate.

ancestry. IIo graduated at Brown
University in 1833, and in 1838 ho as-
sumed tho editorial charge of tho
'rovidencc Journal, which he retained
until called to a seat in the United
States Senate. IIo was elected Govern
or of his native Slate in 1849, was re
elected in 1850, and thereafter declined
to accept the candidacy for another
He was elected to tho United States
Senate as n Union Republican, to sue-
ceed Philip Allen, Democrat, and took
ms seat in 1859, his terra expiring in
1805. During this term ho served as
chairm.in of the Conimitteo on Print-
ing. Mr. Anthonv has been returned as
is own sucessor each expiring term
over since, his present term ending
March 3rd, 1889. IIo was elected
President of tho the Senate pro tern
March 23rd, 1809, aud was re-elected
March 10th, 1871.
Senator Anthony win a member of
tho National Committee, appointed to
accompany the remains of President
Lincoln to Illinois, aud was one of tho
Senators designated by llio Senate to
attend'tho funeral of General Scott, in
ISOO, and was also a delegate to tho
Philadelphia Loyalist's Convention
held in that year. IIo is ono of tho

State Grangers on tho Subject of Legisla
tion. The stato grange, Patrons of Hus
bandry, in session in tho hall of tho
houso of representatives, last week
adopted tho following report rclativo to
It is tho highest duty of tho Ameri
can citizens to uphold and defend tho
constitution of this country. It is the
bed rock upon which our political su
perstructure rests. Upon its inviolato
maintainanco and the laws enacted in
pursuance thereof depend our highest
hopes and dearest interest. Under our
form of popular government tho people
aro sovereign. Their pleasure when
properly exercised is potential. They
speak and it shall bo done.
It is truo tho peoplo nro forebearing
and long-suffering. Submission to un
wise legislation is often silently endur
ed. Difference) of opinion is not es
teemed a sufficient cause for resisting
enforcement But public opinion is on
tho nlert. It u tireless and scrutiniz
ing. It is constantly in tho balance,
testing by experience. When laws
cease U) meet the ends for which they
were intended they should bo amended
or repealed. Or when tho public de
mands tlio enactment of now ones in
order to preservo tho just and equal
rights of the governed lot them speed
ily bo passed. Section 10, articlo 1 of
our constitution, declares, "The citi
zens havo a right in a peaceablo man
ner to assemble together for their com
mon good and apply to those invested
with tho powers of government for
redress of griovancc3 or other proper
purposes by petition, address or re
monstrances. "Wo therefore recom
mend. First That the common school law
bo so amended ns to embrace in tho
rank of studies such additional prac
tical branches as agricultural chemis
try, tho natural sciences nnd other
technical instructions pertaining to ag
riculture. Thcso studies if not pur
Bncd in every school should bo taught
in at least ono school in every district.
We esteem such practical branches of
really more importanco in fitting our
sons and daughters for farm life than
bounding countries or traciug tho
length of rivers.
Second Wo recommend that tho
state college, which was originally in
tended as a technical school of agricul
ture bo restored to tho designs of its
originators. Tho magnitude of our in
dustry its importanco as it relates to
tho honor and dignity of our common
wealth demands that this institution
shall bo devoted to technical iustruation
in the higher branches of agriculture
and mechanic arts.
Third Wo demand that corporations
claiming immunities as common car-
riers either by rail or water, shall be
forbidden by law to discriminate be-
tween individuals or companies in
carrying freight : that their rates shall
bo uniform for like service irrespective-
Fourth Wo recommend in order to
prevent jealousy and rivalry between
different agricultural organizations in
so far as relates to tho election of mem
bers of the state board of agriculture
that they bo elected annually by tho
different agricultural societies including
granges and farraem' clubs. Tho pro
sent system is so manifestly unfair and
so easily manipulated by a few perso-
nal friends, that it is exceedingly ob-
iectionablo and calls loudlv for reform.
We cannot devise a more feasible plan
than tho one suggested by the mas
ters annual address, to remedy tho
Pifth Wo demand, at tho earliest
practicable moment, that just and fair
apportionments bo made, dividing our
stato into districts of compact and con
tiguous territory so that the peoplo of
the state may havo equal and fair ro-1
presentation in tho councils of tho na
tion mid state legislature. Tho legisla
ture in neglecting to perform, this impor
tant duty devolving upon them under
the constitution they had sworn to sup
port and for which they were specially
couvened by tho executivo of tlio stato
merits our unqualified condemnation.
Their indolence was only equalled by
their greed. Had thoy manifested
half the zeal and unanimity in tho pcr-
lonuance ot their constitutional duty
that they did in recuring compensation
for non-performed service, their action
would not be a reproach to the fair
fame of our (treat commonwealth.
Sixth Regarding our order as a

lion, wo unhesitatingly set our seal of
condemnation upon intemperance, not

The Business Depression,
No doubt business matters are not
in a satisfactory condition. It is truo
that no especially alarming symptoms
appear. There are no indications of
any such commercial crisis and wide
spread disaster as wo have so often had
in the past in the United States. There
is simply a general shrinkage of profits,
and the incomes of business men
have considerably declined.
A hand-to-mouth trade is done, how
ever, consumption being largo becauso
of tho rapid incrcaso of tho population
and of tho goncralprospcrityofthopeo
plo for fivo years past. Tho volumo of
transactions is so great that it gives an
appcaranco of successful activity to
commercial centres, while tho railroads
aro showing largo freight earnings.
But tho amount of profit is exception
ally small, and great quantities of man
ufactured goods havo recently been
sold at cost, or even at a loss.
Tho manufacturers nro pretty goner
ally depressed by the showing of their
balanco sheets. Mills which furnish
domestic dry goods are compelled to
face an overstocked market, and they
must cither shut down or go on piling
up their product in tho hope of finding
purchasers in the future. In woolcu
goods the situation is not inspiriting.
The importations of foreign dry goods
at this port fell off two million dollars
last week as compared with tho corres
ponding week in 1882. Tho iron trade
is in a very depresccd condition, and
recently tho fifteen hundred work
men employed in tho Burden Iron
Company's works at Troy accepted a
reduction of their wages of trom ten
to twelve per cent. The situatiou was
explained to them, and thoy were told
that tho reduction must bo made or tho
miils would shut down.
This business depression has now
lasted for many months. Indeed, signs
ot it began to appear so long ago as
last autumn and winter. There havo
not, however, been bo many commer
cial disasters as might havo been ex
pected from tho unsatisfactory state of
things, or at least few of them havo
been serious enough to havo wide

Women for Business.
What women need to miko them
business-like is to bo brought into con
tact with business, to hear it talked
about to be expected to manage their
small affairs in a biisincss-liko way.
The farmer gives his littlo boy a calf
aud his littlo girl a lamb, and accus
toms them not merely to the care of the
animal, but to note its market valuo
and the changes in that value at dif
ferent times. So, it seems to me, every
business man should put into tho hands
of each of hii daughters some small
piece of property, a railroad share for
instance, and teacli her to observe its
fluctuations in valuo and ask their
cause ; aud to learn by personal exper
ience tho difference between principal
and interest. I once heard Mrs. E. D.
Chancy say that her father did this for
his daughters, but I never heard of any
other instance. It ought to bo a very
common thing. If girls are to bo rich,
they need this kind of knowledge ; if
poor they need it still more. It will
not interfere with tho ideal side of tho
nature ; poets and artists, so far as I
avo seen, areas practical as other
