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.

ENTOMBED ALIVE, 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 lady. Jlotirandcz did not renlv. but Sho thoughtfully continued his work, resumed : "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 "Remember." 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 burglar's. rushing back tho bolt, and slowly opening the door, Honrandez discover ed tho stranger already on tho steps. "What do you want!" abruptly asKcu iionranuez. "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 of clothing. bmiling at llonrandez s apparent discomfort, tho visitor said: "Disguiso is useless I presume vou recogtnzo mot'' "Ibelievo I told you, madam, when I opened tho littlo box for you somo timo ngo, I should not soon forcct your faco. In what way can I servo you r "By doing half an horn's work be foro daylight to-morrow, and receivinc S500 for your labor," was tho reply. -it, is noi ordinary worK, said llon raiidez. inquiringly "that commands so tnunifluiont a compensation." "It is a labor common to your call ing," returned tho lady. "Tho prico not so much for tho labor, us tho con dltion under whioh it must bo perform ed." ' "And what is tho condition ?" in quired Honrandez. "That you will submit to being con veyed and returned to your own door blindfolded." Idoas of murder, burglary and al most every other crimo presented themselves in succession as Honrandez politely bowed and said : "I must understand something moro of tho character of tho employment, as wen as the conditions, to accept your ouer. "Will not 500 answer in lieu of an explanation !" she inquired. "No, nor fivo thousand." "Well, then, if it is absolutely neo essary for mo to explain," sho replied, "I must tell you that you aro required to pick tho lock of tho vault, and" " ou havo gono quito far enough, senorii, with tho explanation," inter rupted llonrandez. "I am not at your service. "As 1 said, sho continued, "you aro required to pick tho lock of n vault auu rescue lrom death a man who has been confined thcro for threo davs." "To whom does tho vault belong!" inquireu iionramiez. "My husband,' was tho somewhat reluctant teply., "i nen wny so much seorcsy 7 or, rauicr, nowcamoa man conhned m such a placol "1 secreted him thero to escapo tho observation of my husband. He bus- pectcd as much and closed tho door upon mm, Presuming ho had loft tho vault and quitted tho houso by tho back door, I did not dream uutil to day that ho was confined there. Cer tain Busjuciuus iicuj oi my iiuhuuiiu hub afternoon convinced mo that tho man is there, beyond human hearing, nnd will be starved to death by my barbar ous husband, unless immediately res ent d. l'or thrco days ho has not left the house. I drugged him less than an hour ago, and now lio Is bo completely stupefied that tho lock may bo picked without his interference. I havo searched his pockets, but could not find tho key j hence my application to you. Now you know all j will you ac company mo t" "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 finement 1 "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 occupant 1" Madam, you certainly do not in tend to" "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 sight. 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. Rcforo tho officers succeeded in tak nig aetiora to tan sua had cut an ar tery in her arm, and bled to death Honrandez died in all tho agonies o delirium tremens, and tho Senora's par amour met a horrible death nt tho hands of an infuriated husband 1 hero are only sixty-four distilleries in neniucKy, but thoy yield powerful Whon you eeo a counterfeit coin on tho Bidewnlk always pick it up. You aro liablo to arrest if you try to pass it, "I'm down on you," says tho feather to tho gooso and that Is why folks keop picking at mo, was the reply. 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.

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 lias generally 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.

A young man wrote these names in the register of tho City Hotel hero at noon on Saturday last : "W. S. llubbell, lioston ; Miss A. llubbell, Boston." The young man wns of medium height and slim build. My sister and myself," ho said as he laid aside the pen, "would like adjoin ing rooms if convenient." Ho got Nos. 7 and 7 connecting rooms adjoining tho parlor. Tho young man went out frequently, but his companion kept closely to her apartment. They wero lato at their meals, and encountered few ot tho other guests of the hotel until Monday, when they entered tho dining room punctually at tho dinner hour. Then Mr. Dickcrman of tho firm of Dickcr- n it Plumb of this city, who lias lived in New Haven, recognized the young man as Walter Malley, ono of tho principals in tho Jennie Cramer murder trial. The other guests also recognized him. The young woman with him was of medium build, plump, and wore a well fitting dark-green dress. Her light brown hair was arranged in two awk ward flat coils on the back of her head. Sho spoko little, nnd was evidently held in check by her companion, who was reticent and noticeably nervous. Mr. IJickcrman, after his dinner, strolled into the hotel office and said to tbo venerable proprietor, Curtis Jud son, formerly proprietor of tho Gram- ercy 1'ark Hotel, Now lork, "1 see you had Walter Malley at dinner.'' "No such person m the house,' re sponded Mr. Judson, exhibiting that winning smile which ho has been in tho habit of showing to his guests for sixty years. Other guests drifted down from tho dining room, nnd as sured Mr. Judson that Malley was at dinner up stairs, and turthermoro that his companion was lilancho Douglass, who was tried with tho Malleys in tho Cramer case. Mr. Judson went up to see. Tho couple wero still at dinner. Tho knowledgo of their identity had spread, and curious glances were bent upon them by othor diners. l'retty soon evidently tuoy beoarao aware that they wero recognized, nnd thoy hurried to their rooms. Shortly Walter Malloy entered tho office and called for his bill. Ho said that ho choso to pay then, although ho and his sister would stop until alter tea. iwcry guest in tho houso went punctually to tea, but tho couplo did not appear, They had gono away in tho after noon.

I ship Alert to tho United States bv Great Britain to bo used In the Grecly relief expedition. Tho reading of tho report was called for by Mr. Randall. It was as follows : In tho search for vessels suitablo for tho expedition now Preparing to relievo Lieut. Greely nnd his party, attention was early directed to tho Alert, which is the property of tho British Govern- ment, and was tho advanco ship of tho expedition under Sir Gcorgo Narcs. It was desired to aecuro this vessel, as sho is peculiarly fitted for tho intended service, and, as tho inspecting officers recommended her, Mr. Lowell was tlioroforo instructed to ask whether alio could bo spared for tho service. Information of tho wish of this uovernmcnt having previously and in- iormauy reached tho untish Admiral- ty, a pnvato intimation was conveyed to the United States Ministor to tho effect that tho British Government had not forgotten tho very considerate con duct of this Government on the occa sion ot tho recovery of tho Resolute, and that, should any suggestion bo mado that tho vessel would bo of uso to the expedition, sho wonld bo present ed.

On her arrival in England the vessel was re ceived by tho Queen in person, and tho officers of tho United States navy who took tho ship thither were treated with every official and personal court esy. lhe Government other Majesty has now given the Alert to tho United States unconditionally, with hcranchors, chains and such ol her equimcnt as can bo utilized. Recognizing this graceful aud op portune act of courtesy on tho part of tier Maiesty's Government, tho under signed to-day instructed Mr. Lowell as follows by telegraph : "Her Majesty s Government having presented to the Government of the United States tho ship Alert to aid in the relief ot Lieut, lireely and his par ty, you will inform tho Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs that tho evi denco of sympathy with tho obiect in view receives the highest appreciation of tho President, as it will that of the peoplo of the United States. The President sends his cordial thanks for the opportune gift of this vessel, which he accepts in the name of tho United States, and which will bo used in tho humane cntcrpriso for which it is pecu liarly adapted. A motion was mado by Mr. Kan dall that the communication bo spread upon tho Journal of tho House, aud that it be referred to tho Committeo on 1' oreigu Affairs with the object of having a more formal and appropriate recognition of tho act of tho British Government.

Tho floods which aro devastating tho Ohio valley again this year as thfly did last call forth observations mado a year ago. Ut theso noiio is moro patent than that tho tariff on lumber is simply a , . r .., I- ..!-- bounty for tho production of such ruin ns is now read of daily. Tho tariff excludes Canadian timber nnd raises tho prico of lumber in tho homo market. Tho high prices and big profits tempt peoplo to tho rapid destruction ot tho forests to tho very mountain tops, and woods nro ruthlessly swept away and into the market, which under tho low prices of frco trado would bo left stnnding. In this heedless way the forests at tho head waters of our streams -nrc lov clled and tho snow-covered mountain sides aro laid baro to sun nnd rain and tho action of tho open air. Tho follago which held tho moisturo as in a great spongo and protected tho snow lrom sudden melting, giving forth tho water Blowly during spring and summer, to sustain the streams and enrich tho valleys, is gono ( and tho first thaw and rain hurl down tho whole precipitation of a season into tho narrow channels of tho rivers, which being unable to do tho work of a sea son properly in a few days, overflow their banks and causo widespread rum and unspeakablo woo. Nor is this all. Tho whole rain aud snow fall of a winter being thus hur- ried to tho sea beforo spring has fairly - .1 ... !- if. f- !?. .i. .. opened, no moisture is lelt in tho up lands to supply (he water needed in tho spring and summer. Great droughts follow, tho smaller streams show dry beds, the rivers dwindle into insignifi cance, fertilo plains and valleys suffer from thirst, and vegetation dries up. This is no lancy picture. Tho Uluo River ,vhich promises to pass if it baa not already done so tho highest water 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 wholcsalo destruction of tho forest en 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 for their destruction. Without going 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 JHocniiiff Telegraph. Alphabet of Proverbs A grain of produco is worth a pound of craft.
