How Watch Cases are Made.
Imitation always follows a successful
article, and imitation is one of tho best
proofs of real honest merit ; and thus it is
that tlio Tamo j'oss' Gold Watch Case has
its imitators. Buyers can always tell tho
genuine by tho trade-mark of a erotr n, from
which is suspended a pair of vjf
teaks. Be sure both crotm and
scales aro stamped in the cap of tho watch
case. Jewelers are very cautious about en
dorsing an article unless they not only know
that it is good, but that the character of
tho manufacturers is such that tho quality
of the goods will bo kept fully vp lo standard.

Thoy lived in a crcopor-covcred cot
tnge, tieatlhig among vcrduru in tlio
highly cultivated valloy of ono
of tho Homo counties. There was n
small dairy farm attached to it, upon
which Lady Beat bestowed nil her leia
uro hours and thereby managed to add
no inconsiderable- aum to her income,
which since her husband's death had
been rather limited.
With tho monoy dciivcd from this
Boiirco she had been nblo to send her
only son, Arthur, to Oxford Arthur,
who was tho applo of her eye, tho
only ono being for whom sho oared.
She had given him a first class educa
tion, and it had not been received on
stony ground, for Arthur waa clever,
and a hook worm, too much so for
worldly purposes, since ho had indulged
in study and contemplation until ho had
become a dreamer. By tho time ho reach
ed tho ago of 25, it had been declared
by all the neighbors, and Lady Best's
ctrclo generally, thnt Arthur would nev
er do any good for himself in life; a hard
verdict considering that he had not a
single vlco and was handsome and
manly looking. Not that his habits
aud pursuits wero exaetly manly; fish
ing was tho only sport in which lio had
over been known to indulge, and ho
spent his timo for tho most pait in
wandering listlessly about tho valley,
wearing clothes of a somewhat re3tliet
io cut, which was particularly distaste
ful to his rural neighbors, a slouching
felt hat on his head, and a book gen
erally poetry in his hand.
Idolizing Arthur though sho did, it
depressed Lady Best not a little to see
him tako to an effemiuato do-nothinc
tylo of life ; and since bIio had now
wasted moro than a vear in this sort of
dream, she began to despair ot peeing
him embark in any of the professions
for which sho honed his education
would havo fitted him. What was sho
to do how was sho to chance tho cur-
ont of events sho did not know.
'Was ho in lovo T Had ho had a
disappointment V her acquaintances
asked her till sho was tired of answer
ing. Tho question, however, at last
suggested a remedy. Why should not
a touch 01 tlio very disease trom which
tho people thought ho was Buffering,
bring about his cure 1
Girls ! Sho would surround him
with girls; of course, whilo bIio had a
duo regard for good looks, never for
getting, that in her estimato nothing
mado tho eyes glisten with so much
pleasure as the sight of gold.
So Lady Best gave a tennis party,
and invited all tho beauty of the coun
try, including two or threo heiresses,
but beforo tho afternoon was half over
Arthur had disappeared. IIo had wan
dered down the valley away from "tho
noise," as ho called tho musical laugh
ter of the maidens, promising himself
to return as soon as thoy should all bo
Lady JJest was disannointed, but not
crushed; sho would try again, this timo
in a quieter, but sho hoped a moro ef-
lcciuai way.
"Arthur was out so much she was at
times very dull," sho told him; more
over, sho wanted some assistance in ef
fecting ono or two dairv reforms. Her
eldest brother's daughter Hannah Mil
ton aged 19, was she understood, a
decidedly practical, energetic girl. Sho
had not seen her since she was a ba
by, but she would like to invito her on
a long visit and mako her acquain
tance. Had Arthur anv obiection V
"No; nono whatever. Of courao his
mother was perfectly free to do as sho
But would ho bo civil and kind to
this unknown cousin when she came 1
"If she pleased him, ceitainlv: but.
doubtless, sho would in no way inter
fere with his pursuits."
Not very encouraging if Lady Best
had any serious intentions in referenco
to Miss Hannah Milton, who wo will
observe in parenthesis sho believed
would sooner or later come into the.
possession of at least a hundred thoiis-
auu pounds.
.Not a word of this did sho. however.
utter to Arthur, but, without further
discussion, wroto an affectionate letter
to her niece, asking her to eomo and
stay at tho cottage as loug as sho could
enuure tuo irugality and smallness ot
their impecunious life.
Miss Hannah Milton answered bv
return of post that sho should bo do-
lighted to avail herself or her aunt b in-
,'itatioii, moro especially as her father
was going abroad on business, and sho
should bo her own mistress for tho
noxt two months. Sho might bo ex
pected to arrive, bag and baggage, at
tho cottage on tho 5th of July. It was
then the end of Juno.
To thia announcement followed a
post-script that alio hoped her dear
aunt did not object to living animals,
as of course sho could not leave hers
all alono at Milton Hall during her own
and her father's absence.
Lady Best was delighted at tho suc
cess of her letter, and wroto again to
say that both bIio and Arthur wero par-
iietiiany lonu oi pets.
Arthur had reatl Miss Milton's letter,
and merely said that ho hoped tho dogs,
u tuoy wero uoirs, wero inorouc iuredi

whenever Arthur went out for it

oniluro luss and clatter was convulsed
with preparations for tho arrival of tho
heiress niece and her retinue. A bed
room waa turned into a boudoir for her
pnvato use, and two bed rooms adjoin
ing wero set asido for herself and maid.
I ho coltago was one of thoso establish
ments with countless email rooms, ca
pable of taking in a far larger number
of people than its exterior would lead
you to imagine
Hannah Milton's homo was in the
North. It would be quito evening be
foro alio would arrivo and Lady Best
passed all tho day in a stato of feverish
excitement, wandering about from room
to room. She seemed to f ul that thero
was a destiny at stake; whilo Arthur,
tho individual who in all probability
tho most concerned, was perfectly cool
and collected and passed tlio hours in
hia habitual placid enjoyment of a
Tlio niystio shado of twilight was
already creeping up tho valley when
wheels wero heard npproaoliing tho
cottage, aud Lady Best wont out into
tho porch to receive her gutst. Fain
would sho havo perauaded Arthur to
accompany her, but ho preferred an
arm chair by tho window.
At last tho carriage is at tho door,
and Hannah Milton, having sprung
out, is clamorously kissing her aunt.
Thero ia nothing lusthutlo or dreamy
nbotit her. Sho had a broad, plain,
honest open face, with iluo eyes and n
largo mouth full of strong-looking
wluto teeth not tho slightest prctcn
b'ioii to beauty ,but you can ace at a glanco
that Hannah Milton is a thoroughly
good, kind, sincere woman. Her voico
is very loud, but it haa tho ring of a
true heart. It frightens Lady Best,
however, aa sho thinks, "What will
Arthur aay t Will ho run away from
Hannah, or allow himself to bo sub
dued by her ?" In tho earriago besido
Hannah, half concealed by bird cig?9,
a Persian cat nud three email dogs of
different breeds, there is a girl the
maid, of course. Tho doga and the
cat spring out after Hannah aud tho
footmnn takca tho bird oagea. Just.1
as tho unnoticed occupant of tho car-l
riago is Btcpping out Hannah turns
"Oh I 1 forgot; let mo introduce my
dearest friend, Agatha Burghlcy. Of
oourso you expected her ; bIio novcr
leaves me, you know."
Lady Best held out her hand in a
welcomo to which her heart did not re
spond; nor did speak, except to say:
"And your maid, Ilannali V
MissMilton burst out laughing. "That
is a luxury in which wo don't indulge
do we, Aggy ? Wo arrange our toil
ets ourselves, and very effective they
aro sometimes, ch ?"
Lady Best looked again at tho com
panion of whom sho had nover heard
before. No, decidedly ; if sho had
known of her existence sho would not
havo asked Hannah to tho cottage. For
Agatha was beautiful, of that refined
spiritualized beauty about which poets
For an indefinite period sho had in
vited Hannah, and this companion, this
Agatha, was sho also to be their daily
associate for weeks 1
Tho meeting with Arthur, however,
could not bo deferred, and Lady Best
led tho way into tho drawing room.
Ho was as cordial as it was in his
nature- to be in his reception of his
cousin, but when tho same formula of
introduction with which Lady Best had
been greeted was gone through, and
Agatha, dragged forward by her ener
getic friend, Btood beforo him, with
tho palo gleam of tho rising moonlight
on her face, ho started back as though
he had seen a spectre, more in fear
than admiration, as it seemed to his
anxious watching mother.
Thero was no time, however, for
speculation as to what feeliugs had
awakened in Arthur's breast, the ne
cessities wero asserting themselves and
Hannah in her blunt way declared
herself to bo famishing.
"A rapid toilet and dinner. Como
on, Agatha, wo shall not keep Lady
Best waiting long," and tho two girls
went quickly up into tho rooms that
had been prepared lor them.
In less than a quarter of an hour
they camo back, looking as spic-and-span
as if thoy had made no long jour
ney. It was very obvious that the ser
vices of a maid wore unnecessary.
Tho evening, however, was scarcely a
merry one. Arthur was moro than
usually silent and meditative, Agatha
was very tired; she was not so robust
as Hannah, who was tho only lively
ono of the party, and chatted ceaselessly
to Lady .Best, who, for onco in her life
was not a good listener. Alt her at
tention waa riveted on "that young
person,'' as sho already, in her mind,
designated the somowhat lackadaisical
Hannah was very full of the project
ed dairy reforms. Sho loved every
thing that gave her practical tenden
cies lull vent; but Lady IJest was by
no means as keen as she was.
"Whilo they were reforminr; what
would Arthur aud this beautiful Atralha
bo doing ?" sho asked herself. "Oh, if
Hannah would only turn her full atten
tion on tho far moro important work of
reforming Arthur I"
Lady liest was, however, too much
of a diplomatist to let her thoughts ap
pear in worus; no, Bne must, act, ma
noeuvre, watch.
Of courso tho first thing next morn
ing Hannah expressed a wish to go
over tho farm, and accompanied by
Agattia, sho and lady liest started on
a tour ot inspection. Arthur had seen
tho farm ad nauseam, ho said, and it
did not ninuso him; ho preferred re
maining in the houso till luncheon
With tho explanations and discus
sions which this farming pilgrimago
entailed, Lady Best's spirits rose, and
sho became thoroughly absorbed in
her subject, rojoiciug that bIio had
found so genial a companion and able
co-worker aa Hannah, On a sudden,
however, nor spirits leu to zero
Agatha had disappeared. "Of courso
sho had gono to join Arthur; it was
preconcerted plan between them,'1 nnd
tho mother, as sho thought of it, be
camo perfectly miserable.
No moro talk about gallons of milk,
London market, homo consumption
etc. Sho was tired, sho said, and if
Hannah did not mind they would re
turn to tho house. Thoy reached tho
uoiiom oi mo garden, whioh lay in
front of tho drawing room windows,
just as Agatha, accompanied by Ar
thur , strolled up tho terrace towai ds
tho wood.
1 ho sight was past bearing; this,
tlien, was to bo tlio end ot all her Iov
nig caro ior Aruiur; no was to marry
Hannahs penniless companion. Nor
dm uannau s remain, as sho too, per
celved them, tend to calm tho oxoited
mother & fears.
"Oh I they aro going to havo a little
chat. I told Aggy tho sooner it was
over tho better.''

A Mormon Woman who did not Like Her
Husband's Children.
i Even tho paralyzing hand of reli
gious fanaticism cannot stillc human
nature. It may degrade tho intellect
nnd siibjiigato tho soul, but in mom
ents of supremo trial instinct is sure to
assert itsolf against any artificial en
vironment that has been set up to in
sure its captivity. Tho pages of his
tory are dotted all over with illustra
tions of this truth, and its evidences
nro renewed whenever the passing of
events nfford occasion. Ono of these,
witnessed by a party of tourists in
Utah, is not without imporlcuco in its
beatings upon a weighty and obscure
problem which beforo long will con
front tho peoplo's representative states
men. Tho tourists had been calling
upon a Mormon cldor living in a small
town between Salt Lako City and Og
den. Ono of tho four wives of tho
elder was to take tlio train for Ogdcn,
and tho party wero requested to noto
tho affectionately effusive manner in
which tho woman would part from her
sister wives and from tho brood of
childien sotno twenty or more who
formed no insignificant portion of tho
common household. Tho woman a
hatd-iaccd, thoroughly drilled Mor
moness of 40 shook hands with her
associates in conjugality, and dutifully
turned to kiss tho children good-bye.
Catching hold of tho nearest frowsy
headed youngster, bIio had almost be
stowed a salute upon its mouth when
sho saw that it was not one of her own.
It was hastily thrust aside,aud tho next
one, proving to bo of the proper stripe,
it was given a sounding and almost re
vengeful kiss. Tho next two wero cur
sorily inspected, and after somo hesi
tation the woman, avoiding the glar
ing oyes of her lord, passed them by
with a disdainful push. Another of
tho right breed was found, but tho
threo following ones wero astonished
by tho irato mother, balked unexpect
edly in tho search for her own. Thus
alternately culling and caressing sho
made ner way through tho astonished
brood until ono of the other wives,
enraged at seeing her children sub
jected to indignity, rushed forward to
inflict chastisement on the offender. An
impromptu freo fight followed, tho
elder being compelled to seek aid from
tho spectators beforo pcaco was restor

and when tho woman finally broke for
