How Watch Cases are Made.
In buying a silver watch case great caro
should bo taken to secure one that is solid
'silver throughout. The cap of most cheap
silver ca&es is mado of a composition known
ns albata, which is n very poor substitute.
for silver, as it turns black lu a short timo.
The backs of such cases nro mado much
thinner than those of an all silver case,
being robbed in order to make tho cap
thicker and get in as much as possible of
the cheap metal. Another important point
in nbilver case is the joints or hinges, which
bhouhl bo mado of gold. Thoso of most
cheap cases aro made of silver, which is
not a suitable metal for that purpose. In
a brief period it warps, bends and spreads
apart, allowing tho backs to become looso
upon the case and admitting the dust nnd
dirt that accummulate in the pocket. The
Kcystono SilverWntch Cases are only mado
witli bilver caps and gold joints.

On tho deck ot a big Mississippi steamboat stood
an aged Southern planter. Indicating by a sweep
ot his arm the waters the boat was passing over,
ho said to a passenger from tho North: "Whcnl
was twelve years old I killed my first bear on a
new plantailon my father was then cutting out ot
a forest that grew directly over the waters ot this
bend. That was a mighty good plantation, and
thcrowas right smart of bears there, too. Ilut
that one thousand acres of land went Into tho Mis

The cruelty of theso words seemed
to freeze the young girl. Her brown

as it not able to believe tho words just

Frank Gansevoort was a hard-work

mourned over tho uisaitcction ot their

steadily on, and even went so far as to

On tliis particular afternoon Dr.
Ganesvoort had occasion to hunt up

The general amusement may bo
imagined only equalled by tho hearty
laugh of tho Indian when Captain
Pratt, desiring to show tho boy's num
ber, suddenly pulled out from the deep
mysteries of his looso sash-liko belt a
clear, bright littlo hand looking glass,
tho inseparabio companion of the typi
cal young buck.
Somo of the party had been carried
off to uudergo tho initiation to tho first
steps toward a civilized oxistence, nnd
had already emerged from the trying
ordeal, shavon and clean and well
clothed. But for a certain shyness of

and heels, they were hardly to bo recog

wise, around their heads. Tho scout
seemed to consider himself quite a pro-
gressivo uiuian, anu was not, a little
proud ol his sergeants uniform, and
drew on and oil his gauntlets witli the
caso and nonchalance of tho most fasti
dious cavalry officer.
Although amid now surroundings
and scarce recovered from the delights
and bewilderments of a journey, during
winch many ol the Indians saw a train
of cars and a locomotive for tho first
time the chiefs took a deep interest
in nil the appointments of the school,
and expressed themselves much pleased
witli everything they saw.
They, too, wero thinly clad, and, un
accustomed to tlio snow that covered
tho grouud, felt the cold intensely, ac
cepting gratefully tho warm suits of
clolhiug that Captain Pratt kindly pio-
vidod tor them.
At tea-time, Saturday evening, the
now delegation joined the older schol
nrs and inarched with them to the din

dinner-table, the new boys used their

most respectful silence, although tho
singing, the prayers and tho plain,
earnest address wero uniutelligiblo to

ot ouo gesturo escaped their observant
nnd well-trained eyes.
Uoing out ot tho chapel the chiets
examined tlio register in the aislo, and
pleased like a clu'd with a now toy
cried, "Heaps warm ! heaps good I

know whero tho smoke goes that will

They Want to go on the Stage-
Tho following question which agi
tates so many' minds was written to tho
Now York Sun by a correspondent
from a Southern city :
"There nro two young ladles hero who
nro exceedingly anxious to go on tho stage,
nml havo requested mo to writo you nnd
sec If you couldn't givo them all tuo neces
sary Information In regard to tho matter.
Is thcro any place In New York where per
sons nro taught for tho stage ? Who are
the pnrtlca and what terms do they charge?
How long would they havo to study bo
fore they nro allowed to nppcar In public 1
I hnvo uono all In my power to try nnd
dlssundc them from their Intention, but
without avail, I have seen ono of tho ladles
on tlio stago several times, that Is, In pri
vate thcatrlcnls, nnd I must admit that sho
hns a great deal of talent In that line. Be
sides that, sho Is very highly educated, and
I think It she had a chanco would make a
To which the Sun replies editorily
as follows :
Thcro are in New York several mem
bers of tbo theatrical profession who
dovoto their sparo timo to preparing
pupils for tho stage, and somo of them
nro nrtists of high standing, who must
bo altogether competent for tho duty.
Wb do not know what their prices for
tuition, but thoy aro probably reason
able. As to tho timo required to get
tho adequate training, that must de
pend on tho nptitudo of tho pupil. A
wholo lifctimo of study would not mako
an actor of ono man, whilo anothor
might master in a few months all that
his professional teacher had to offer
him in tho way of technical instruc
tion. But oven after tho pupil has passed
from the hands of his theatrical pre
ceptor, it is likely that it will bo im
possible for him to get a chanco to
actually appear on tho stago in any
part of which satisfies his ambition and
gratifies his vanity. Ho will como in
compction with many experienced ar
tists who aro standing around Union
square waiting for an engagement, and
whose illusions as to their abilities and
opportunities have been pretty thorough
ly dispelled by harsh experience Tho
novice, if he gets on tho stago at all,
must expect nothing moro than a very
minor aud humble part ; he must be
prepared to encounter sharp criticism
in the green room, nnd to do without
tho. praise of his professional associates.
What seems histrionic genius to his
partial friends who applaud his ama
teur performances, will be very coldly
judged in tho green room.
In fine, ho will havo to make his way
against obstacles which will subdue bis
spirit and hurt his self-love most keen
ly, and his progress upward will bo slow,
it he gels up at all. Ho will bavo to
work hard and submit to indifference.
and what seems to him injustice. Bo-
sides, he will get poor pay at the be
ginning, and will bo lucky if ho can
secure an engagement which will givo
him even that Bteadily. Instead or.
making a grand success in the great
city, ho may bo obliged to travel with
strolling companions, and have to wait
lor years betoro obtaining an opportu
nity to appear in a leading theatre, at
least in any except a small part, whero
he has no chance to gain tho particular
attention of tho audience.
A woman cannot hopo to faro any
better. Her strange trials may be oven
harder to bear, and moro destructive of
her peaco and happiness. Scarcely
any girl thinks of acting in other than
the leading parts in which sho has seen
tho most famous and most experienced
artists. She wants to jump up to tho
top at once, and all her theatrical
dreams nro based on tho assumption
that she will do it that sho will bo tho
heroine of tho play, and that sho will
live in an almospheio of intoxicating
applauso and adulation. Instead of
that, if sho gets on tho stago at all, sho
is likely to bo nt first only ono of
tho supernumeraries who stand about
to watch the triumph of .tho heroino
and assist in making up the stago pic
ture of which another is the central fig
ure. These arc facts which tho two South
ern giils must look squarely in the faco
it they think of goiug on tho stage.
J hoy must understand that they pro
pose to enter a very difficult profession,
and ono in which there nro ten, nny, a
hundred, chances of their failing to ono
of their succeeding. If a woman risen
nigh in tho theatre, sho gets better pay
than she can earn elsowhero ; but if
she remains in tho lower or middlo
ranks of tho theatrical profession sho
will only make moderate wages for
very haul word.
Valentine, who is commemorated on

Bishop of Rome, and martyr. Ho
lived in tho third century, nnd being

from that timo tho girl became ena
