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.

I noticed a big tear in it for the first time to night. Will you ?'' And to his rather disconnected speech Mrs. Dick nodded, and smiled a bright acquiescence. The door ulammed behind Dick, mid she glancud round tlio cozy, homo like room. "If Dick had not been obliged to go out and such a cold night, loo. The gas bin nod brightly. Tho chrcry firo in the gralo was a bod of golden coals. Tho French clock on the mantle ticked musically. Towards the crimson-covered table, oil which lay a pile of unopened mag azines, looked two wistful hluu eyes. But the bride of six months shook her dainty, bronze-brown head with lesoluto determination. Tlio rosy lips repeated the hackney ed formula "Duty first, nleasuro after." ' So, accordingly, the littlo white hands laboriously lugged and hauled Dick's big overcoat into tho room, turned it over, and began their wifely occupation. She smiled softly to herself, for her thoughts were pleasant ones as she sat and sewed. A rarely pretty picture in tlio par lot's (ire-lit glow, the childish figure in tlio soft, dark dress and snowy muslin apron, tho busy hands flying briskly through their task. "To-morrow will ho my birthday, and Dick has forgotten it, I know. How sorry he will bo when I tell him to-morrow." And as she broke merrily into "Comin' Thro' the Rye," the French clock on the low maible mantel struck ton. Her tak finished, she turned the coat over to sec if it needed other re pairs, and as she did so a small square ehect of creamy paper fluttered from an inside pocket and fell upon tho car pet. She bent forward and picked it up with n low laugh. Which of Dick's friends aro suffi ciently foppish to perfume his love let ters, I wonder.?" Then she turned it right side up and looked at it. 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. The bird-like song died on Dolly Everett's lips. Tho soft, bright color faded slowly out of her faco. Tlio blue eyes grew wide and start led, as deliberately, though almost in voluntarily, sho read tho few words on the page before her. The note ran : "Dick, Daih.ino I havo misled ou dreadfully of late. Come. Ex ercise diplomacy to night and slip away. I halo her for keeping you from me. Besidps, Gerster is in town. Is the hint too broad 1 In spite of all, Dick, ever your EsTiir.it. That was all. But it was enough. For a few moments Dolly's eyes, bla.ing, terrified, stared straight at the fatal sheet, as though thoy would shriv el it up with their blue fire. Then she flung it shiiddeiingly from her, as though it was a venomous thing, nnd could sting her. Who was tho woman who dared to write in that manner to Dick her Dick ? yes, she told herself, witli an air of defiant proprietorship, hers only. She crushed her hands tightly to gether, till tho diamond next tho plain gold circlet cut the white flesh cnitl- then, as a horrible susincion leaned to life in her brain, with a low moan she slipped from tho chair and crouoli ed, shivering, against tho great shnguy overcoat.

SENATOR AHTBOHY, 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. sBNATon Anthony's iiecord. Ilenrv B. Anthonv. of Providence. Kliodo island, was born m Coventry, that State, April 1st, 1815, of Quaker 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 term. 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 most popular members ot the Senate, and his elevation to its Presidency a third timo is at present strongly indi cated. Who's Boss.

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 legislation. 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- ly. 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 evil. 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 great educational and moral organiza lion, wo unhesitatingly set our seal of condemnation upon intemperance, not only as an unmitigated evil morally, but a fruitful source of expense in tho ailI11,I1:,,.m,:nn ?: Plo citizens aro pressing t Philanthro pic citizens are prcssiug tho subject of prohibition, and it is constantly becom ing more and more apparant that tho question will havo to ba met nt no dis tant day. Wo would respectively ro commend that tho necessary legislation to bo secured to submit it to a direct vote of tho people of the state. Should a majority decide in favor of prohibi tion it would give tho law ft prestige which would materially assist in its ex ecution and render it more efficient than it would bo otherwise.

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 spread consequences. Merchants aro conducting their af fairs with great caution, and avoiding so far as possible, all risky ventures. licsides, their prosperity lor tour or fivo years previous to the depression lias tortiticd them against the euecls ot a considerable period of dull trade and small profits. But they are troubled about the future. JV. Y. Hun. 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 eoiile but it will prevent that hope less dependence for tho simplest busi ness matter upon tho nearest man hich so often makes cultivated wo men tho objects either of pity or of fraud.
