In buying n silver watch case great caro
slioultl bo taken to secure one that is solid
silver throughout. Tho cap of most cheap
silver cases is made of a composition known
ns albata, which is a very poor substitute
fur silver, as it turns black in n short time.
The backs of such cases aro made much
thinner than tlio.se of nn all silver case,
being 'robbed in order to mako the cap
thicker and get in as much as possible of
tho cheap metal. Another important point
in asilvcr case is the joints or hinges, which
should be made ,of gold. Thoso of most

a brief period it warps, bends and spreads
apart, allowing tho backs to become loose
