How Watch Cases are Made.
It is a fact not generally kiioun that the
James Jlosif Gold Watch Cases really con

cases has led lo tho manufacture of u wry
poor grade of bolid gold watch iiuks
low in quality, and deficient in quantity.
These cases are mado from ) to 10 karats,
and a 5 or 0 karat case is often sold for VI
or M karats. It is sot economy to In y a
watch case so poor in quality that it will
soon lose its color, or onu to soil that it will
lose its thapo and fail to .shut tiht, tin .s

It was Julius Hildcr who had first
discovered her, leaning against the
companion wav railing, with the air of
aving lust come up or down, ho could
hardly determine which, looking ab
scntly at tho tumbling waves.
Julius and his tnend Austin JJrakc
were seceders from a cay parly who
ail made tho tour ot boulliern Jinropo
ogether. It was Julius who had 111
stigated his companion to desert tho
others and tako tho German steamer
for Now Orleans direct, which then
touched at Havre, instead ot crossing
by a Cunarder ; ami it had all grown
out ot tho obstinate determination on
the part of his sister to attach her
party to that of Mrs. Smollett.
Mrs. amollott was his choicest aver
sion, a pretention", intriguing woman,
11 whom tho match-making instinct
had been so developed by the effort to
establish her own five daughters that
it could not rest sattshed with the ac
complishment of that gigantic task,
She seemed to have an endless supply
ot niecps, adopted daughters or pro
teges of some sort, whom she dangled
ostentatiously before tho eyes of all
clligiblc bachelors. Sho had improved
a chance meeting with .Julius to an

was your hrst love, 1 believe, sho had
said with her ogling dowager smile,
and Julius had felt himself seized nt
once with an unsurmountablo aversion
to the fair young nieco of Mr. Smol
In the first heat of his indignation
against his sister ho had conceived this
notable scheme of crossing by tho
Havre steamer, and though it had not
iu its development proved to be emi
nenlly amusing, ho had never omitted
to congratulate himself nnd his com
panion night and morning upon the
good sense they had displayed 111 adopt

dowagers, ho would say, as ho yawn
cd over his book or tlie dull game with
which they strove to believo they wero
amusing themselves, "gives n man
time lo pull himself together and tako
an account of stock, as it were." Still
when on one of thoso aimless pilgrim
ages below, which formed the only
break in tho monotony ot this oceuiia
lion, he had nearly run over this pretty
young cieature leaning against tho
railing, a thrill of undeniable pleasure
had coursed along his nerves, ami h
had felt himself blushing with pleasci
I'ortunately, the sea-tan had render

light that shot into his gray eyes the
sea-tan had no power, nor yet over the

conducting her to a scat.
"lhank you,' sho had auswerei
cooly, "you did not startle me, as I saw

There was no more to bo said, nnd
her maid appearing at the moment
willi a bundle ol parti-colored wraps
juutis could only lilt his hat again
and carry out his purposo of going bo
low. As ho had no reason for going
except that ho had tired of staying on

quired n paramount attraction, ho was
soon back again.
In tho meantime tho young lady hat

upon her arm.
"No, no, you mustn't go vet," ho ex
claimed, and ho fancied he perceived a
winess in her oyes as sho turned them
toward him, which touched him inex
pressibly. "I am embarrassed, not so
much by your hypothesis as by some
thing in myself. Since you leave mo
to chooso between theso hypotheses, I
will take tho latter. You .Ire, then, an
orphan without fortune, hoping and ex

confess what I should have concoaled

bho remained closelv in her own
cabin during tlio remainder of the1 af
ternoon and until quite lata the next
morning, when Julius, who had main
tained an anxious and impatient watch
upon deck, found her in the saloon sip
ping a cup of tea and nibbling a pieco
of toast, by way of breakfast.
"1 hope you havo forgiven me, he
said, tt-king a seal beside her.
Hut I have not, she answered,
"Which have I offended tho Gov
ernor s neice or tho orphan music
teacher?'' ho asked, with a saucy
"Both. It was n daring imperti

"Well, I don't seo what I'm to do
about it. It isn't tho sort of thing you
can expect a man to tako back.1'
".No, sho said, looking absently in
to her cup, then suddenly realizing
that this was not just what sho should

contusion of blushes, "That is, of

It was my fault I am willing to ad

Mississippi in fact, ho felt at the mo
ment that he had hated them ; yet ho
sprang up, dressed with despatch and
mounted to tho deck. Everybody was
thero but tho one he sought. He stood
near tho companion-way, watching
furtively, and starting at every step.
Sho did not come, neither was sho at

Tho hours glided by, tho city roso

An analysis of tho provisions of the
bill is here gircn. I ho advantages to bo
expectod from its passage, tho report
asseits, aro as tollows :
First. It largely reduces tho aver-
ago charges now paid by tho public for I
telegraphic services. Taking all the
evidence together, it must bo very near
tho fact to say that the reduction mado
by the bill in the averago charge per
telegram will be from thirty-nine cents
to twenty-five cents immediately and
twenty cents nt tho end of five
second, llioplan inaugurated by
the first ten sections of the bill secures
during tho first live years an absolute
uintorinity of ch irges for day tele
grams within nil distances not exceed
ing 1U0U miles, and for night telegrams
within all distances not exceeding 2000
Third. The plan provided in this
bill secures from tho commencement cf
its operation a uniformity of charges,
irrespective of the amount of business
in different places, for telegrams to
newspapers and to commercial news
associations : that is to say, for all tele
grams which convey tho current news
tor publication by tho press and intelli
gence to tho public of tho daily and
hourly changes in tho foreign and do
mestic markets. This uniformity docs
not exist, and never will under tho ex
clusive control by privato companies
of tho business of telegraphing. It is
a weighty recommendation of this bill
that it secures it. Tho procurement of
the intelligence which tho newspapors
ought to give, and do give lo the
country, will thus bo mado as cheap ic I
ono place as in another, saving only tho
unavoidable equality which arises from
tho fnot that tho number of newspa-
pers which may oombino to purchase
the intelligence is greater in some
placo3 than in others. So, too. tele-
graphic advices to commercial news as-
sociations of tho course of the markets
win 00 subject to tho same charges in 1
all places. I
Tin: cns'soitsuiL' question.
Fourth. The bill, while it may not
wholly remove, does, to an important
egree, lessen the danger that the pur
veying and preparation of the intelli
gence sent to newspapers and to .coin
mercial news associations will be sub
jeeted to aconcealed censorship, where
by it may bo colored or distorted so as
to subserve political purposes, to mis
lead public- opinion ns to the merits or
demerits of men and measures, to pre
vent legislation and to favor schemes
ot privato gain. Under the present
telegraphm system the possibility of
nuv.11 . ajiuuiua ua uuunuiollllJ, wuiuu IS
ono 01 the most alarming dangers
which menace tho country, arisea in
two distant ways, each of which re
quires a separato consideration. The
first is the power which tho telegraph
companies themselves havo of mauipu-
iiuiiig iiuwb, t,ior sinister purposes)
and tlie second is the samo power pos
sessed by the Associated Press and
other similar associations, not them
selves owning telegraph lines, but mak
ing special compacts for transmission
of t.'Iegrams over lines owned nnd
managed by others.
It will appear that the power of
the telegraph company iu this respect
will be entirely taken awav bv the
pending bill ami that tho power of the
Associated Press and similar associa-
tions will he greatly reduced. For the
purpose, tlio report says, of giving
fabulous fortunes to its inside mana
gers and their friends tho Western
Union need not send untrue market
quotations. It had only to give tho
truo quotations n single hour, or less
than that in advance to thoso whom it
means to favor and tho work is effect-
uauy accomplished, sso such power
should bo allowed to exist iu this
country, even if no past abases of it
can bo shown to havo occurred, or
even if it bo believed that there has
been 111 fact 110 abuso of it. Tho temp
tation to abuso it is onormous, and will
sooner or later provo to bo irresistible.
Tho bill will effectually tako tho power
away from the Western Union, or any

shapo of starvation remedies, because
while wo aro starving wo sacrifico albu-
men as well as fat, and tho loss of fat
during famino causes anaemia, which
demands compensation in tho shano of
moro plentilul diet, in itself likely to
lead to a still greater accumulation of
tho verv substance of which it is desir
ed to get rid. Enuallv useless and in
adequate in his opinion aro tho various
drink cures, bo they hot or cold. Pro-
lessor libstcin agrees with Mr. Want
ing in advocating legituen alono ns
the only safo euro for an inconveni
ence which most frequently results
from too much food. But he adopts a
dietary widely different.
lhe crucial difference is on tho
question of eating fat. Fat is tho sheet
anchor of Dr. Ebstein. So far from
making ono fatter, it is able, by "com
bining with the albuminous materials
and tho carbo hydrates," each in duo
proportion, to operate effectively against
obesity, tho removal of which re
solves itself rather into a question of a
permanent change of habits based on
physiological principles than of mere
cure in the ordinary acceptation of the
term. No ono need expect to become
thin in a fow weeks, nor will a pcrma
i ! . f 1
ucni improvement in uguro uo guaran
teed if the .regimen is not adhered to
for the remainder of tho patient's life.
Inanition must bo avoided, and tho fat
taken to satisfy the cravings of appo
tito must be of unexceptionable equal
ity. No dyspeptic, wo aro assured,
need fear fat so long as ho does not
take too much, and, indeed, so admira-
blo is that substance, long dreaded by
delicate, that, by checking nitrogenous
waste, it appeases thirst as well as
hunger, a fact, in part nt least, known
even by Hippocrates. Mr. Banting
permitted any fish, except salmon ; but
Dr. Banting eucouraged his patients to
enjoy, "in nioderatiou, of course," not
only this dish, but pave de fole gras
and similar delicacies, which go far to
reconcilu the corpulent gourmet to tho
exclusion of carbo-hydrales. "Carbo-
I hydrates, are, indeed his sole detesta-
sweet of nil kinds. nnl nntinu,. in
rv form ho forbids unconditionally.
Three to threo and a half ounces of
bread per day aro permitted, and of
vegetables, asparagus, sumach, cab-
bago and the various legumes rich in

cludes none, and it is needless to add
that so far from wishing the fat peoplo
to avoid ine jai in lhe Uesh, ho begs
thi'in to pick out all that they can get.

only, for his sesam oil I substitute but
ter 1 at is his stronghold. On this
ho depends, not as a mendioament, but
as a food ; it has, in his opinion, been
a much maligned article of diet, aud
though ho by no means recommends
tho men of full body to consume a
third of what tho German soldier is al
lowed in war time, he is convinced that
oven with two to threo and a half
ounces tho patient need not eat more
than three-hfths of '.ho meat winch is
required under Mr. Banting's system.
Ou no condition must there bo an "af-
ternoon tea," or othe
tween meals." Ale
permitted to the ext
er such "snacks bc-
tMcoholio drinks aro
permitted to tho extent of two or three
glasses of light wino at dinner, but
beer is barred, unless, indeed, "tho per
mitted carbo-hydrates be correspond
ingly restricted," though even then tho
ale accepted as an equivalent must be nn
extremely moderate amount. Tho diet
of a cured patient was something like
tho following : i-or breakfast, a large
cup of black tea, without milk or sug
ar, and two ounces of broad, with plen
ty 01 uutter ; at v.au in winter or at u
or 0.30 in summer. For dinner, bo
tween 2 and 3 o'clook, soup, "often
with marrow," four to six and a half
ounces of roast or boiled meat, vegeta
bles in moderation, but no. potatoes and
almost no saocharino turnips. After
dinner a little fresh fruit, or a salad, or
stowed fruit, without sugar, with two
or threo glasses ot light wine, followed
by a large cup of black tea, without
milk or sugar. Supper of blaok tea,
