How Watch Cases are Made.
The many great improvements intro
tlnccil in tho manufacturo of tho Jas. Boss'
Gohl Watch Case, have led to similar im
provements in tho making of silver cases.
Under tho old methods, each part of a
tilver case was mado of several pieces of
metal soldered together, requiring a great
amount of cutting and soldering, which
solicited the metal and gave It tho pliability
of lead rather than tho elasticity of silver.
Under the improved methods, each part
of the Keybtono Silver Watch Caso is mado
of one folid picco of metal hammered into
shape. The advantages are readily appar
ent, for every ono knows that hammering
hardens tho metal while soldering softens it.
To tost tho superiority of tho Keystone
Silver Watch Case, tako one of 3 or. weight,
press it squarely in tho center when closed,
and it will not give, while a caso of same
weight of any other make will givo enough
to break tho crystal. Tho Kcystono Silver
Watih Caso is mado only with silver cap
and gold joints.

A locksmith's advk.ntuui:.
In tho summer of 1878 Scnor Hon-
raiidcz opened n llttlo loekstnitli's shop
iii tho city oi Mexico, and soon worked
himself into n prosperous business.
Lute ono evening a lady, closely veiled,
entered his shop, nnd pulling from be
neath a cloak a small Japancso box, re
quested llonrandcz to open it. Tho
look was curiously constructed, and an
honr had elapsed beforo a key could bo
mauo 10 nt it. mo lady seemed ner
vous nt tho delay, and at lenctli re
quested tho locksmith to closo tho door.
This suggestion occasioned somo sur
prise on tho part of Ilonrandcz, but ho
willingly complied. Shutting tho door
and returning to his work, tho ladv
withdrew her veil, disclosing a sweet
and intelligent face. There wns a
restlessness in tho eyo and a pallor in
tho cheek, however, which plainly told
of a heart ill at case, mid in a moment
every emotion for her could givo plaeo
to that of pity.
"I'erhnps you aro not well, madam,
and tho night air is too chilly V said
tho locksmith inquisitively.
"in requesting you to close the door
nan no other obiect than to escape,
the attention of passers by," said tho
Jlotirandcz did not renlv.
thoughtfully continued his work,
"That littlo box contains valuablo
papers pnvato papers and I have
lost tho key, or it has been stolen,
should not wish to havo you remember
that 1 over canio hero on such an er
rand," sho continuedj with some hesi
tation, at tho samo time giving Hon-
randez a look which was no difficult
matter to understand.
Certainly, madam, if vou desire it
If I cannot forget your faco I will at
least attempt to loso tho recollection of
ever seeing it here, said llonrandez.
1 lio lady bowed rather coldly to this
remark-, ana iionranuez proceeded
with his work. Ilavinir succeeded
after much filing and fitting, in turn
ing tho lock, he was seized with a curi
osity to get a glimpse at tho precious
contents of tho box, and suddenly
raised tho lid, discovered a buudlu of
letters, and a daguerreotype, as bo
slowly passed tho box to its owner.
Sho seized it hurriedly, and placing the
letters and picltiro in her pocket, lock
ed tho box, and drawing tho veil over
iier lace, sue passed into tho street,
whispering as sho passed Honrandez
About two o'clock in tho morning,
in tho latter part of .May following,
Honrandez was awakened" by a gentle
tap upon tho window of tho littlo room
back of his shop, in which ho slept. In
a moment ho was at tho window.
"Who s there?" ho inquired, peering
out into tho darkness.
Hist 1" exclaimed a figure, stepping
in front of tho window ; "open tho
door. I havo business for vou."
"Rather past business hours, I should
say j but who arc you I '
"No ono that would harm vou," re
turned tho voice, which Honrandez
imagined wai rather feminine for a
rushing back tho bolt, and slowly
opening the door, Honrandez discover
ed tho stranger already on tho steps.
"What do you want!" abruptly
"I will tell vou.'' ntiflu-nrflfl t.lm s.imn
soft voice, "if you dare open tho door
wiuo enough lor me to enter.'
"Como in, said Honrandez. reso
lutely, throwing tho door open, and
proceeding to light a candle. Having
succeeded, ho turned to examine his
visitor. Ho was a small and neatly
dressed gentleman, with a heavy clou:
around his shoulders, and a blue navy
cap drawn suspiciously over tho oyes.
As Honrandez advanced toward him,
ho seemed to hesitate a moment, then
raised tho cap from his forehead, and
looked llonrandez curiously m tho
faco. Tho latter did not drop tho can
dle, but acknowledged to a littlo ner
vousness by hurriedly placing tho can
dle upon tho table, and investing him
self with two or three necessary articles

discomfort, tho visitor said:

"No, nor fivo thousand."

"To tho end of tho world, madam,
on such an rrrand."
'Then preparo yourself ; thero is a
cab at tho door."
Honrandez was a littlo surprised, for
ho had not hoard tho sound of wheels.
Hastily drawing on a coat and provid
ing himself with tho required imple
ments, ho was soon at tho door. There,
sure enough, was tho carriage, with the
driver in tho scat ready for tho mys
terious journoy. Honrandez entered
tho vehicle, followed by tho lady. As
soon as nho was seated, sho produced a
heavy handkerchief, whioh, by tho
faint light of an adjacent street lamp,
sho carefully bound round her com
panion's oyes. Sho then seated herself
besido him, and tho cab started. In
half an hour the vehicle stopped in
what part of the city llonrandez was
entirely ignorant, as It was evidently
driven in anything but a direct course
from tho point of starting.
Examining tho bandago to bcc that
his vision was completely obscured,
tho lady handed Honrandez tho bundle
of tools with which ho was provided ;
then takitifr him bv tho arm led him
through a gate into a house, and, after
taking him along a passageway which
was about fiftv feet in length, and
down a flight of staire into what was
evidently an underground basement,
stopped beside a vault, and removed
the handkerchief from his eves,
"Hero is tho vault open it," said
she, springing the door of a dark lan
tern and throwing n beam of light
upon tho lock.
Honrandez seized the bunch of skel
eton keys, and, after a few trials,
whioh the lady seemed to watch with
tho most painful anxiety, sprang the
bolt. Tho door swung upon its hiuges
and tho lady telling Honrandez not to
closo it. as it was self-locking, sprang
into tho vault. Honrandez did not
follow. Ho heard tho murmur of low
voices within, and tho next moment
the lady reappeared, and leaning upon
her arm a man, with faco so paie and
haeruard that Honrandez started at the
'sight. What intense suitering the un-
fortunato man must havo endured du
ring the thrco long days ot his con
"Remain here,'' she said, "I will be
back in a moment."
Tho two slowlv ascended the stairs
and entered a room immediately over
whero llonrandez was standing. in
less than a minute tho lady returned.
"Shall I closo it, madam?" said
Honrandez, placing his hand upon the
door of tho vault.
No ! no !" sho exclaimed, hastily
seizing his arms j "it awaits another
Madam, you certainly do not in
"Aro you ready ?'' sho interrupted,
impatiently, holding the handkerchief
to Honraudez's eyes. The thought
flashed across his mind that she intend
ed to push him into tho vault and bury
him and his secret together. She
seemed to read his suspicion, and con
tinued : "Do not bo alarmed, you are
not tho man."
Honrandez could not inislako tho
truth or tho fearful meaning of tho re.
mark, and lio shuddered as ho uont his
head to the handkerchief.
His eyes wero carefully bandaged,
and ho was led to tho carriage, and
thence home by a moro circuitous
route, if possible, than tho ono by
which ho came. Arriving in front of
tho house, tho handkerchief was re
moved and Honrandez stepped from
tho vehicle. A purso of $501) was
placed in his hands, and in a moment
tho cab and its mysterious occupant
had turned tho corner, and was out of
llonrandez entered Ins shop, aud tho
purso of gold was tho only evidence ho
could summon in his bewilderment.
that all ho had just dono and witness
cd was not a dream.
Tho money seemed to bo cursed
From that night Honrandez neglected
his nourishing business, and with the
$500 and that which ho had managed
to save, ho plunged headlong into a
life of dissipation which, in a short
time, ended fatally.
In tho meanwhile tho sudden disnp
pcaianco of Senor Cavasso, tho wealthy
banker, becamo tho universal topio o
conversation, and though his wife gave
every sign of poignant grief over tho
absenco of scnor, tho knowing ones
winked significantly at each other, 'and
whispered that honor Uavasso s whero
nbottts was clouded in tho deepest
mystery. Tho polico could obtain no
clue, and senora pretended tho utmost
sorrow for her lost husband. It was
known that tho two did not live bar
pily together, but nothing further
could bo elicited whereby a tangiblo
elite could bo obtained.
llonrandez had drifted from bad to
worse, until, thrown upon a bed of do
liinim ho was given up by physiotans
as a hopeless case. While tossing in
his delirium ho graphically described
the incidents on tho night of his open
mg tho vault, which facts comitig to
tho cars ot tho polico, an investigation
was made, and when tho vault was
opened Senor Cavasso's remains wero
found. Whilo sleeping under tho
drug administered by his wife, he was
carried to tho vault and awoko to find
himself entombed alive.

The Oonsolentious Workman,
Tho conscientious workman is a
being we all hear of, but Bcldotn meet.
Tho writer has no hesitation in saying
that thero arc, comparatively speaking,
fow workmen actuated in their calling
by any consideration boyond tho mcro
point of dollars and cents. And tho
writer furthermore begs to observo that
lils opinion they aro not in tho least
be blamed for this ; because if thcro
aro few workmen enduod with consci
entious feeling regarding their labors,
there aro still ioVcr employers inspired
with a conscientious Iccling regarding
their men. What tho writer wishes to
arguo out is tho position, whether It
ays a workman to bo conscientious, it
ns employer bo so or no. The writer
thinks it docs, and for theso reasons :
man who docs his work in tho same
atisfautory and expeditious manner,
under nil circumstances, is an aquisition
and thoso who are in authority, very
soon discover his good qualities ; his
ght may Ho hidden under a bushel for
long time, but it is suro to shine out
at last. Such a man ns this, sober, ac
tive, discreet, intelligent, who docs his
work, not because tho foreman happens
to be looking at him,but from a senso of
right and duty, such a man as this will
riso in life like going up a ladder. Ho
is in the samo position as the man who
keeps his arms down in water ; ho can
not sink if ho tries. That is the con
scientious workman, and people who,
after reading this, resolve to lay in a
stock of the commodity, they will find
it pay them well to use it, and it is like
manna to tho Israelites, there is always
lenty to be had.
Iho writer is perfectly aware that
j vi tow
He will find,
tho average workman has
grounds for complaint.
however, if he has not discovered it
already, that brooding over grievances
makes them swell into mountains, and
that grumbling does no good either.
If the workman has cause for dissatis
faction, let him look his position calm
ly in the face, see whether it will be to
his interest to take activo measures in
egard to it: if the result seems doubt
ful let him make up his mind to sub
mit cheerfully to his burden till the
timo comes when ho can kick it away
from him. Tho writer believes this is
good wholesome counsel, and will well
bear a trial. Lot tho workman per
form his daily duties, domestic and op
erative, with tho same cheerful spirit,
doing his duty because it is his duty ;
striving earnestly to master tho craft
he is engaged in to its utmost limits,
to improve that which he finds in ex
istence, and bis lot in lite win oe no
unhappy ono ; on the contrary, he will
find a hope of improvement in his
social position which will be an unfailing
fund of support to him in his calling, and
that if he exercises his stock of con
scientiousness, the more ho disperses of
it, tho moro ho will havo on hand for
future disposal. Ji. ib G. Fnnter and

"No such person m the house,' re

his companion was lilancho Douglass,

follow, tho smaller streams show dry

cance, fertilo plains and valleys suffer
from thirst, and vegetation dries up.
This is no lancy picture. Tho Uluo

mark ever belore recorded on it, last
summer fell to an unprccedently low
stage. Tho actual experience of men
in every long-settled country is that

tails the destruction of the life-giving
streams, with all tho consequences that
follow. Much of southern Europo has
been made a desert wastes by tho de
struction of forests through ignorance.
With the experience of ages to profit .
by, we cannot plead ignorance, yet wo
aro recklessly pursuing a course that
has dono irreparable damage to other
lands. Tho head waters of the Ohio
tributaries in tho Pennsylvania and
West Virginia mountains aro stripped.
Tho peoplo of Now York aro alarmed
tor the noblo Hudson, and with reason.
Rivers aro mado destructive powers in
the winter and early spring, and aro
robbed of their power of beneficence in
tho late spring and summer. All the
rivers in tho Northwest aro beginning
to undergo tho same sad experience.
1 hero can bo no useful streams if
the forests aro cut away. The reckless
cutting of tho forests will continue
whilo tho Government oilers a pension

into the general question of the tariff
at all, it does seem clear that tho pro
hibitory tariff on lumber ought not to
bo continued. Yet it will be continued
for some time, and probably until most
of our forests aro destroyed. liujfald
