How Watch Cases are Made.
It ia a fact not generally known tliat tiio
James i'oss' Gold Watch Gucs ruilly con
tain moro pure gold than many "boliil"
gold cases Tho demand for theso watih
cases has led to tho manufacture of a vciy
poor grado of Bolld gold watch cases
low in quality, nnd deficient in quantity.
These cascsaromado from 43 to 10 karats
and a 5 or 0 karat case is often hold for 12
or 11 karats. It is not economy to buy a
watch case so poor in quality that it ill
toon loso Its color, or one so soft that it will
lose its shape and fail to shut thjht, tlu.s
letting in dust and damnginj,' tho works, or
ono so thin that a slight blow will break

It wns six o'clock of n crisp October
liiroiiing, nnd Joiiii Hoyii, n lnvmcr,
rousing fiotn liis soniitl nijjlit'u Bleep,
iprang out of bed with tiio nlurt rend
iiess of it man who knows, tiro vnltio of
iu fiist liours of day. It was a tavern
bed from which ho jumped i homo nnd
h carca wero miles away ; nut a long
lo lay bcloro linn, nud no washed
and dressed briskly, as ono In liasto,
humming a cheerful nir, meanwhile, as
became a man who felt himself in
good spirits nnd had amplo lenRon for
beiiic so. For, bo it known, this year
had proved the best to farmers since
John had boon his own master. Har
vests had boon large, prices high, nnd
John, on his way back from the an
nual matkot, carried a sense of freedom
nnd liberation at his heart from the
final extinguishment of n mortgage on
his farm a mortgngo which had press
ed as heavily on his conscieiico as did
tho burden of a Clnistiau on his shoul
ders. Tho burden was lifted now, and
ftnther tli an that, John carried in his
fat, red wallet, S'-'OO over and above,
toward tho expenses of tho next year.
Uo had never been so "Dotorcliand'
before, and tho sensation was a joyful
"My neck is out of tho collar now,".
ho muttered to himself as ho brushed
his thick, brown hair. "I should bo a
fool indeed if I put it in again. No
moro mortgages for mo 1"
Then, his toilet completed, ho ran
down stairs, two steps at a time.
Farmer-like, his first visit was to his
horses. They wero munching their
corn very satisfactorily, and after a
look or two aud a pat, John returned
to tho inn, where a jingling boll an
nounced a breakfast. It was smoking
on the table a substantial meal of tho
kind universal in taverns thirty years
ogo, and John Hoyd, whoso nppolito
was of tiio kind proverbially said to
accompany a cood conscience, was
iloinc it amplo iustice, when a sudden
instinct led him to thrust his hand into
tho. inner pocket, which held two hun
dred dollars. Tho wallet was gono.
In tho suddenness of the shock John
felt himself turn palo and then Hush
painfully as ho confusedly tried to re
member if ho had taken out tiio wallet
aud when. Under his pillow there it
was ! IIo recollected distinctly, or so
it seemed, putting it thcro for security's
sake when ho went to bed the night
before. With a muttered excuse ho
left tho tnblo and hurried up stairs.
The door of his room stood open, aud
tho maid servant was putting fresh
sheets on his bed, and tho soiled linen
was lying in a heap on the floor.
Toward tno heap John hurried and
began turning it over.
'Have you lost something, sir 7'
iskt'd tiio maid.
John straightened himself to answer.
IIo had not noticed tho maid before,
though sho had waited upon tho table
at supper. JNow he observed that she
was young and rather pretty fair,
with a trim, slender figure, beautiful
glossy hair, neatly dressed and braided,
and a pair of sweet, apprchensivo bluo
eyes. Her voice was soft, too, and
she had a shy, modest manner, which
suggested an idea ot relinement. All
these things Farmer Boyd observed in
a flash, and instinctively noting, weigh
ing, estimating by that wonderfully
rapid progress of wliioh tho human mind
is capable, while yet his thoughts wero
lull ot Ins money nud Ins loss.
"ie9,i am looking lor my wallet,
which f left under my pillow. Did
you find it ?''
i ho girl s laeo blanched to a deadly
whiteness and her eyes dilated as with
sudden terror.
"No, sir," sho said, her voice tremb
ling and sinking away as sho spoke.
"1 didn t seo any wallet.
John looked at her distrustlully ;
but thero was something in tho pale
face that disarmed suspicion.
"I d like to search the bed, lio said.
"It may havo slipped under tho mat
tress. Together they turned the mattress,
but no wallet was visible.
"That off horso of yours lias got his
shoo loose, somehow,'1 announced Mr.
Nash, tho landlord, suddenly appearing
at tho door. "I thought I'd better tell
you, so that you can stop at tho black
smith's as you pass and get him to put
in a cotiplo ol nails. Why, what's tho
matter !''
John explained.
Tho landlord looked very grave. IIo
whistled softly to himself a minute,
with his eyes fixed on tho tumbled bed
ding j then ho wont to tho head of tho
staii saud called his wife. Presently
they carao in together, nnd tho land
lady's fnco looked very red and trou
"Such a tiling never happened in my
house before," sho protested. "Hut
there's only ono person that lias been in
your room since you came, besido your
self, and sho's the person you must
reckon with," pointing to tho maid,
who, with white cheeks and downcast
oyei, leaned agaiint tno wall as it
awaiting Hcntenee.
"Oil, indeed, indeed, I didn't tako ill
I never saw any wallet," sho said ; but
her voico wiw drowned in Mrs Nash's
louder tones.
"And pray who olso took it, do you
suppose? Who elso had tho chancel
Answer mo that 1 It serves mo just
right for taking in a girl with no reo
ommend a girl I don't know nothing
about, not so much as hor name, or
wliero sho catuo from, or where her
folks aro. Five- week's ago to-morrow,
that's all tho timo sho's been in tho
house, sir, but this is tho end of it. It's
tho last timo I'll over havo a help I
don't know tho long and short of, bo
you needn't bo afraid to stop ,vith us
again, no, nouo of your friends, eithor ;
as for her, out sho packs this very
"I'd better go for tho constable,
hadn't I, if you're suro it was under tho
pillow you put it 1" said tho landlord.
"Oh, don't, please, don't 1" pleaded
tho girl, weeping bitterly.
"Givo tho gontleman his wallet baok,
then, nnd perhaps ho II lot, you go.'
"I can't. I haven't got it I Oh,
pleasu bclievo me 1 Don t send mo to
iail 1" sho urged.
The landlady ouiy answered by an
expression of tlisgust. And, throwing
her apron over her ucad, tho poor gir
went iu silence, saying no moro.
John had hold his penco during this
nltorcation, sharply oyeiug tho persons
concerned iu it meanwhile, Tho
Nushcs ho know something about.
Thoy wero of good reputation as far as
ho was nwarc. The maid wns a stran
ger to them, as to him i but, in spito of
circumstance, and her manner, which
was hardly less suspicious, ho could
not bring himself to bclievo her guilty.
IIo was not a hasty man, and ho wns a
iust one. with a kind heart to back his
temperato judgments ; and niter a low
minutes' reflection ho mado up his
: a . I
mind what to do.
I can't swear that I put tho wallet
under my pillow, or nnVwhero else,"
ho said. "I'm pretty suro that I did,
but my thoughts about it aro confused,
somehow, and It may bo I left It nt
Holton, whero I slept 'lucsday night.
I don't wont no injustice dono on my
account. "Don t cry like that ad
dressing himself to tho girl -"I'll tell
on what I'll do. Will you get tho

. . . " . S" ... I
"and if vou'll end mo a saddlo I'll
rido back to Bolton and mako inquiry
there. If I find tho money, well and I
good ; if I don't it will bo timo enough
to talk further about it to-morrow."
"I'm suro it's good of you to tnko so
much trouble," declared the landlady.
"But whether or no, tho girl don't slay
here. I'll havo no suspected thief in
my house 1"
"There'll bo nothing to suspect her
of, if I find tho wallet," rejoined John,
uryiy. "uon l give me poor ming a I

His reflections were not agreeable, as
hd retraced his footsteps over the dusty
highway, traveled but yesterday with
so light a heart. Tho loss of his mon-
ey meant a good deal to John Boyd,
'1 ho pressure of anxiety seemed to sot-
tlo again upon his shoulders, ns ho
thought over tho probabilities of its
nonrecovery. "But 1 won t givo in

forced to agrco with his opinion. De

Ho had gained the top of a long hill
from which Bolton was dimly visible,
when a moving object f nr ahead caught
Ins eyes and he roso in his stiriups in
order to seo moro clearly. As ho did
so his horso made a false stop, stum
bled nnd threw him forward in tho sad
dlo so that his head grazed tho horso's
neck. ft was in this position that a
tiny object, a patch ot red, caught Ins
eye. His heart gave a little leap, then
he called himself a fool, but all the
same ho dismounted to examine.
Already a random hoof-stroko had
burned tho red patch from sight, but
Jonn recollected tho spot, and stooping,
dug and Bcooped till it again became
visible, llis fingers rccoguized a solid
substance. Trembliug with excite

a few words of thanksgiving ; after

"I ain't so over suro about, that,"

madam, you'll drop tho subject and
just make it up to the poor thing by

Mrs. Nam seemed by no means

Hurrying out to the barn the next

sobbing sigh called his attention to a
bench outside tho kitchen door, whore
sat a fignro crumpled up into a forlorn
little heap, in which he recognized tho
pretty maid of tho day bofore. Sho
wore her bonnet, and a bundle lay bo-
sido her. Her face was hidden on hor
arms, which wcio crossed on tho back
i . ,
of tho bench.
"Why, what's tho matter 1" said
John, turning back.
Tho girl looked up with n stait. "I

"JNow, Lucy, it that s vour name, you

Mrs. Nash, I'll put things right."
To put things right seemed easily
enough to a strong, hearty man, with
iustico and argument on his side, but
that is becauso ho docs not calculate
properly on thoso queer hitches and
crochets of human nature, especially
woman nature, which havo no relation
to justico and fair dealing, and aro un
affected by argument. Mrs. Nash
Droved impervious to John's choicest

so far as she could see, why ho should
meddle in her concerns. This upshot
ot the interview was that John tlew
out of the kitchen with his face as red
as fire, tackled his horse, threw valise
and feed bags into tho wagon, mini
tho amount of his reckoning on tho
table, and addressed Luoy, who, pale
and terrified, stood bundlo in hand,

of which is liko this :

makes her over into a nondescript that
is neither a companionable wilo nor a

highest praiso is the omission of fault
