How Watch Cases are Made.
A plato of solid gold 14 2-10 karats
fine is soldered on each side of a jdate of
hard nickel conipobitlon metal, and the
three aro then jiassed between polished
steel rollers. From this plate tho various
parts of the cases backs, centers, bezels,etc.
aro cut and shaped by dies nnd formers.
Tho gold is thick enough to admit of all
kinds of chasing, engraving, and engine
turning. The composition metal gives it
needed strength, stiffness and solidity, while
tho written guarantco of tho manufacturers
warranting each caso to wear Ucnty years
proves that it contains all tho gold that
can possibly bo needed. This guarantco
is given from actual results, as many of
these cases have been worn perfectly smooth
by years of ute without wearing through
tho gold. DunuQUT, Ia., Doo. H, 1S80.

Young Heedless li a boy
Who lives In everr town,
Ills namo j "Tls sorac(lmcs.Tlmmjr smith,
And sometimes Tommy Hrown."
Young Heedless goes to school
When he can nnd Ills lint.
At homo ho loves to play at ball
When ho can find his bat.
Of mittens, one Is gone j
Of rubbers, two more ! ,
And on tho very coldestday
Ho never shuts tho door.
Tho hammer's always lost :
Tho saw left on the ground j
And when he wants his button-libok
It never can bo found.
To buy a pleco Of beef,
You send lilm to tho shop ;
He looses all the change ho had,
And brings you mutton chop.
For all theso careless things,
And moro than I could name,
Young lleetliess always feels qulto sure
Ho not er Is to blamo.
Ills father would despair,
Ilut that this thing in rue ;
That forty j cars or so ago,
Ho was Young Heedless too.
Mrs. Juliet It. llraml, n Chicago Ailmmr.
It was a rare, impressivo Bcenc, and
Ernc8t Lyslc, wlio was nt oil times an
ardunt admirer of nature, passed in
voluntary in a rapid walk through tho
bloasora-strcwn orchard, and leaning
idly against the gnarled trunk of in
grand old apple tree, silently contem
plated the pcacoful country scene. Tho
glorious nun was just sinking to rest
amid all tho gorgeous splendor of
crimson, amber aud gold. Another
moment and it had sunk from sight
behind tho distant hilltops, leaving
only a broad band of gold along
tho horizon, which slowly faded as tho
witching summer twilight approached.
Ho was a perfect specimen of man

old banker whoso imposing country
rcsidenco was but a quarter of a milo
distant, and few could havo helped ad
miring his manly beauty certainly
not sweet little Kitty'Elton, who was
his promised bride, and of whom ho
was tenderly thinking as ho stood thero
in her father's orchard, with his eyes
fixed dreamily upou tho long, low farm
house whore he believed his darling
was at this instant awaiting his com-'
A shower of apple blossoms coming
down on his baro head abruptly
aroused him from his roverio. Ho
glanced up cpjickly to discover his lit
tlo sweetheart perchocV liko a bird upon
ono of tho swavinc; limbs and almost
concealed by tho fragrant blossoms.
"liook-a-bve, baby, upon tho tree-
top," floated down to him in sweet,
silvery tones, while a second shower of
blossoms descended beside him. to bo
followed a moment later by something
moro substantial in the shapo of Kitty
horselt, who swept mm a mockinir ut
ile curtsey as she landed lichtlv besido
"Kitty !" It was tho only word
that Ernest spoke, but the tone in
which he said it contained n world of

wounded, and sho drew quickly away.
?or a moment an embarrassing silence
fell between them, which Kitty was
tho first to break.
"We will go up to the house, if you
please, Mr. Lyslo. It is growing
quite chilly, and oven a tomboy may

Ernest scarcely reooguizod tho cold,
sarcastic tones as belonging to his gen
tle uttlo lovo. They had been be
trothed but six weeks, and Kitty was
passionately fond of her handsome,
haughty lover ; but, as ho had remark
ed, Uer Baucy nuliilorenco to tho rules
of etiquette had been a constant sourco
of'disputo between thorn.
lvitty was possessed of a sweet, for
giving disposition, but, alio argued,
Ernest had gono too far in presuming

that moment to punish him when an

The short distance to tho farm houso
was passed over in silence. Arrived
at tho great, old-fashioned porch, Er
nest was warmly welcomed by Mr.
Elton, aud cordially invited in
to the tidy sitting room, whoro Mrs.
Elton was busily knitting bv tho dim
light Irom tho hugo log lire, for, as
Kitty had remarked, though early
summer, tho evenings wero chilly
Tho evening passed quickly, as all
evenings aro wont to do at Elton

leave Kitty accompanied him to tho
Kitty had by no means abandoned
her determination to teach Ernest a
lesson, and had already concocted
plan for doing so,
Although Ernest would no'vor havo
admitted tho fact even to himself,
certain it was that tho same defiant
disregard of tho established lulesof
society lo which he, all his life, had
been accustomed, had oapturod first
his fancy, then his heart by its refresh
A month later Ernest was obliged
to leavo woeienviiio to transact some
important business for his father, who
had been seriously 111 nnd was not yet
BUincicniiy recovered to admit ot trav
eling business which would necess
tato an nbsonco of several months.
bomehow, lvitty did not appear ns
depressed ai Ernest had expected
when ho communicated to her tho fact
of his approaching journoy. Ho had
anticipated some sudden outburst of
grief, or nt least somo expression of re
grot on tho part of his impulsive littlo
sweetheart, at tho prospect of so long a
separation, but instead sho enthusias
tically replied, after a momont of silent
"How fortunate, mamma has decided
lo solid inn to tho Heaslioro with Aunt
Lydia Crculoigh you havo met her, I
believe and nraid tho change of scent)
wo Bhall neither ot us find an opportu
nity to miss the other. Auntie nnd I
shall remain nt Crescent Beach until
tho 1st of Seiitcmbor, and mamma has
decided that I may accept her invita
tion to return with hor to New York
for tho winter. I think you mentioned
that your family return to tho city in
October, and ns yon will arrive n
month later, you can call upou mo at
Mr. 's, 1' ilth avenue."
"So you are to pass the winter in
that city 1" This was Bald rather so
berly, for Ernest was woll aware that
Kitty's frcBh, blondo beauty, so differ
ent from that of our faded city belles
whb had been "out" four or fivo sea
sons would nt onco crcato a furor in
the select society in which Miss Grcn
leigh moved. "However," brighten
ing suddenly nt tho thought of how all
tho gentlemen in his set would envy
him tho possession of his now beauty,
'fl don't think I object to that arrange
ment, si tioc it will afford mo an oppor
tunity of. seeing you inuoh more fro:
quontly than I could havo dono had
you remained at Elton Farm."
A merry twinkle onnio into his lis
tener's mischovious bluo eyes, as, with
a pretty assumption, sho replied :
"Yes, your highness, tho fates will
ing, the Bimplo country lass is to mako
her entree in the cremc do la crcmo of
Now York society in precisely four
months from date. And, Ernest, I am
going to try awfully hard to acquire
that dignity and caso of manner which
you bo much admire, if this diminutive
figure" with a glanco at her very
slender and girlish proportion "will
admit of my being dignified."
"Thank you, darling," Ernest re
plied in pleased surprise. "The knowl
edge of that fact will almost reconcile
mo to the long separation from you,
and, Kitty, a slight reserve of manner
and some doferenco to tho requirements
of society are all that aro necessary to
mako my littlo sweetheart simply perfect."
The days and weeks rolled by until
four months had passed and the busi
ness which took Ernest to' England
was about done.
Only two months more and then for
homo and Kitty. Ho pictured to him-
self her rapturous surprise when they
should meet for ho had decided not
to writo to ber tho precise date upon
which he should arrive, it would bo so
pleasant to seo hor rush eagerly for
ward to greet him ns she used to do
when ho appeared unexpectedly at El
ton Farm, and exclaim, with her pret
ty features all alight with glad sur
prise : "Oh, Ernest I am so glad you
aro conio 1" and then would follow a
sly littlo confession of how awfully
lonely she had been without him. Ho
had been wont to receivo these impul
sivo littlo advances rather coldly then,
but absence had taught him to prize
his little sweetheart as sho deserved,
aud tho thought of tho warm welcome
which awaited him upon his return to
her was very sweet indeed. His busi
ness was completed a week earlier than
ho anticipated, and one morning lato
in October ho took passage for New
York. Tho voyage seemed intermina
ble, but it was ended at last, and Er
nest could have shouted for joy as he
sprang upou the pier and glanced
about him. As his arrival was unex
pected no one was there to meet him,
so calling a cab, ho was driven at onco
to his father's city resideuce. After ho
had been waruilv welcomed by his
father, tenderly kissed and caressed by
his mother and sister, and tbo thou
sand and one questions asked and an
swered, ho was informed that tho fam
ily wero "billed for a ball at Mrs.
Cranleigh's a few hours later."
"And you must surely come, lirnest.
his sister broke in imperatively. "Kit
ty is quite tho rago. Her latest con
quest is the Uount Do JN organ ville,
and it is rumored that sho has already
roiused a ueruian liaron.
Ernest was verv tired, but the
thought of meeting Kitty was sufficient

disturb her graceful oase and languid

wns about her a certain undetinable
dignity which eventually checked

Thereupon pussy began to howl nnd

the jug off tho cat's head or the cat's
head out tho jug got badly scratched,
lost his temper and dropped tho jugged
cat into tho nearest neighbor's yard.
Now-this was simply a protective

by tho cat in scratching its would-be

was trying to rcleaso n cat from a

tho aid of a can-opener the cat was re
leased from tho pitcher, and Mr.
Bergh proceeded to scotiro tho arrest
of tho parti-colored party who had
dropped the combination of cat and

bound that the cAl should have justice
