$ BY OLIVE HARPER.
There were thoughtful Bhades in
the soft brown eyes of Alice Dorrence
as she walked slowly along the path
leading from the river's edge to the
lawu. Her white dress aud pale pink
ribbons fluttered in the afternoon
breeze, and made a sharp contrast
with the vivid green around and under
Just now she was trying to solve a
problem such 83 has been presented to
most women in their time. Two men
loved her, each for different qualities.
John Strong had been her friend aud
protector ever since she could remem
ber, and she knew his loyalty and
goodness but he was a plain, unas
suming person, caviDg little for society
or appearance. His leisure hours were
given to the study of mechanics. He
worked in a machine shop as though
proud to wear the overalls and apron.
It is true that he looked like one of
the sculptured gods as he stood car
essing some part of a great intricate
machine, but . .
The other was a rich man's son, and
his long, slender hands were never
stained with toil.
Alice thought of both these men,
contrasting them, weighing them and
sometimes almost deciding in favor of
one or the other. One was educated,
but a workman. The other was poli
shed, but an idler. As often as she
thought she had decided some new
question would force her to begin all
over again. She had neither father
nor mother, and lived with her aunt,
who had just married a widowed
clergyman with such an array of noisy
children that Alice felt that she really
could not bear tp remain, and she
could think of no better way out of
the difficulty than to marry.
If she married John she would go
to live in the house near the big works
where his father had lived. She would
always have enough of everything,
but unless John invented something
valuable he would never be rich. If
she married Charles Sturgess she
would go to New York to see life as it
is in the best society. Her imagina
tion pictured this as an existence of
fairy-like beauty with no seamy side.
Still she walked and thought, but
came to no decision. She turned to
ward the lawn leading to the beautiful
Hudson and had gone but a few spaces
along the path when she came in 6ight
of Charles Sturgess standing beside a
rose bush, whose buds were just un
folding. He stood a moment looking
at the bush then chose the most per
fect and loveliest bud of all and broke
it off short without a stem.
Alice stepped forward just then, aud
as he bowed and spoke he tore the bud
apart and pressed it to his nostrils.
He held it thus for a brief space in
haling the fragrance, then cast it
upon the graveled path and ground it
down out of sight with his heeL
Alice felt a chill pass over her. He
must have noticed, as he smiled and
said: ' '
"I love roses so."
"I shouldn't think it"
"But I do. I love to choose an un
opened bud and tear it apart and in
. hale its very soul."
"And throw it away. after."
"Why keep it? But let us return
to the river. The sun will soon set
and we can see the glory from "
"I must go in. Excuse me." Say
ing this Alice fairly flew to the door,
and from there to her room. She had
had a shock, and she needed solitude
to measure the hurt. The man smiled
gently, sauntered on to the river side
and looked at the sunset alone. He
could afford to wait. He was sure of
In the meantime things were not
going well at the machine works. The
engineer had always been reliable.and
with him in charge of the great engine
that drove the ponderous machinery
all over the immense works no one
gave a thought for his personal safety.
But this day.no one knew how it hap
pened, the engineer lay in a stupor on
the ground, and the pressure of steam
was so great that the whole place
trembled as the . wheels whirled
around. Before the danger was dis
covered it was almost too late. Hun
dreds of lives were at stake, and there
waso, one to save them. John sprung
to tie engine to fim,l that the safety
valve was closed and out of order.
He leaped up and seized the bar with
his bare hands and bore his whole
weight upon it though he felt it
buru its way to the very bone.
He never knew how long he held on
to the bar that let off the steam, but
when he regained consciousness, he
was lying outside on the grass. One
by one the faces he knew dawned
dimly out of the mist before his eyes.
After awhile they took him home and
a doctor dressed the burns.
Next morning John was sitting
propped up in an armchair with both
hands bandaged. His face was pale
and dark rings around his eyes showed
his suffering, but his thankfulness for
the safety of all those men over
balanced his pnin. And yet there was
little hope that he would ever use
those hands again hands that had
been so clever to fashion wonders in
steel and iron. He clo'sed his eyes.
Alice had heard the story that same
night. She could not go to him. She
had no right. But in the morning
she saw clearer, and, rising, she went
into the garden and plucked another
bud from the same bush and hastened
with it in her hand toward John's
home. On the way she met Charles
in his immaculate morning costume.
Something new and decided in Alice's
face caught his attention. He ad
vanced jauntily, saying:
"May I walk with you? I suppose
you are going to visit our mechanical
"Thank you, no. I am going
"Ah! "Well, I will say goodby, as I
leave here tonight." He watched her
fa'ce and saw it deal', as if relieved.
"Then we. will say goodby," and
she walked on, as if in haste.
Something like a mist came into his
eyes and a choke in his throat as he
"I am sorry, for she is as good as
she is beautiful, and she deserves a
better fate than stagnation here."
Alice was soon standing by John's
side. . He opened his eyes to see her
handing him a rosebud, while tears
rained down her cheeks.
"What is it Alice? What troubles
you?" he asked.
"Oh, John, John! I am so sorry
for your hands."
"Don't cry, Allie.don'tcry They'll
be well in a few days."
But Alice sunk on her knees and
went on crying and kissing the baud
aged hands until John put those
maimed members around her and
lifted her face to his. She laid the
rosebud ou his lips and he reverently
kissed it, and as he did so it unfolded
of itself to perfect beauty. Chicago
A RIVAL TO PAUL REVERE.
Housed the Patriot on That Occasion.
The chief patriotic event of Patriots'
day, 1899, was the unveiling of a tab

ing place of William Dawes, whose
daring midnight ride of April 18-19,
1775, was of the same character aud
accomplished the same purpose as the
ride of Paul Revere.
Major Frank H. Briggs delivering
the address said:
"Poetry has so adorned with its at
tractive charm the ride of Paul Revere
that to the average mind Revere was
the only man who had anything to do
with warning the people at the time
of the expedition of the British from
Boston on the night of April 18, 1775.

poetic license to place Revere in dif
ferent towns hour by hoar, and at the
outset he is, apparently standing on
the Charlestown shore waitiug for the
signal from the old North belfry. The
rides of Paul Revere aud William
Dawes were practically simultaneous
as regards the Btart from the town of
"The facts which led up to the ride
were these: It had been known for
some time previous to April 19 that
the British were preparing to make a
movement with the probable destina
tion at Concord, as munitions of war
were being'gathered there, and Han
cock, Adams aud other Revolutionary
leaders were in that town and vicinity.
"Joseph Warren, who had remained
at Boston, had arranged certain de
tails as to notification from inside the
town. Revere's own narrative states
that it had been agreed with a Colonel
Conaut and some other geutlemen in
Charlestown that if the British army
went out by water two lanterns should
be shown in the North Church steeple,
and if by land one, as a signal, for we
were apprehensive it would be difficult
to cross over Charles river or get over
"Warren waited until the British
troops had actually begun to move
to their boats, and then he started
William Dawes out by land route from
Boston Neck and thence across
Brighton bridge to Concord and Lex
ington. aad directly after about 10
o'clock ho sent Revere by water t
Charlestown, thence to Lexington
across the country, to acquaint Han
cock and Adams of the movement, and
arouse the country.
"Revere immediately called upon
Captain John Pulling aud desired
him to rrnike the signal at once in the
North church steeple. Richard Devens
and Colonel Couant, who were on the
Charlestown shore, saw the signal and
sent a message at once to warn Han
cock and Adams.
"Revere then went across to Charles
town in a boat, and joined by Devens,
started on his mission- He got to Par
son Clark's at Lexington, where he
found Hancock and Adams, about mid
night, and in the course of half a houi
he was joined by Dawes. After some
refreshments they rode on to Concord
and were joined by Dr. Prescott, but,
near Hartwell's tavern in lower Lin
coln, became, separated, and Revere
was afterward captured.
"William Dawes was of old Puritan
stock. The first William Dawes was
a mason by trade, and settled in Brain
tree in 1635, and afterward moved to
Boston, and his house on Sudbury
street was pulled down' in 1775 after
rive generations had successively lived

Doing a Golden Deed.
The portion of land on the Tich
borne estate in England known as the
"Tichborne Crawls" received its name
some fifty years ago because of a re
markable feat of endurance accom
plished by a woman. She was the hu
mane aud sensible wife of an over
bearing Lord Tichborne, and she took
sorely to heart the condition of their
wretched tenantry, and made every
effort in her power to help tuern; but
she was a cripple.
The lady could see that they needed
the spur of industry and responsibil
ity, and she often besought her hus
band to set off to them a tract of glebe
or arable land, giving each laborer a
life lease of the soil and the annual
proceeds of his tillage. Her impor
tunities finally tired him out, and he
told her, half' iu anger, half in jest,
that he would set apart to the poor
tenantry for nine hundred and ninety
nine years as much laud as she would
travel alone in a month, beginning at
the corner of the parish churchyard.
The crippled lady was resolute, and
she surprised heir husband by taking
hiwi at his word. Carried by her at
tendants to the churchyard corner,
she began her severe task. The ser
vants kept watch, but she could not
allow them to assist her. She per
severed. Every morning, except Sun
days, she was set down at her last
finishing point and made her painful
day's progress, in all weathers, till,
at the end of the month, she had sur
rounded a number of acres that aston
ished herself and every one else.
With her bent body and feeble
limbs, her motion was little more than
a crawl, but she won the land, and the
tract has been called the "Tichborne
Crawls" ever since. Londou Timea

DOLLAR WATCHES LIKED
MILLIONS OF THEM NOW IN USE AND
They Are Simply an Evolution of the
ClockThe "Way They Are Madh and
Why They Are So Popular and Durable
- The Works Are Made of Brass.
About 275,000 dollar watches were
eold by a single firm of manufacturers
last year. The same firm estimates
that the 6ale for this year will reach a
million. This is a very good advance
from the figures of 1894, the first year
that the dollar watch really dawned
upon the country. The firm sold 30,-
000 that year. The price of the watch
is surprising enough, but the really
astonishing thing about it is the fact
that a guarantee goes with the time
piece. A dollar watch is one thing;
a guaranteed dollar watch is another;
The agreement is as follows: "The
makers agree that if, without abuse,
this watch fails to keep good time,
they will upon its return to them,
direct or through agent named above,
within one year from above date, re
pair or replace it with a new one."
"What do you mean by 'good'
time?" asked the reporter for the New
"Well, that depends a good deal
on the man who buys the watch. Not
what we mean by it, but what the
purchaser considers good time. Some
men are more particular than others."
"Do you guarantee exact time?"
"No. There is rarely a watch, no
matter how expensive it may be, that
keeps absolutely exact time. But if
one of our watches varies, say more
than a minute a day, we will make it
right or replace it with a new one. "
"How can so cheap a watch be
"To give a literal answer: by spe
cial machinery designed for the manu
facture of all the different parts of the
watch. The work being done by ma
chinery, the capacity of a plant is
enormously increased. And the out
put being so large, the profit on each
watch can be reduced to a -minimum.
We manufacture 3000 watches a day
now. With a working day of ten
hours, that means five watches
every minute. We employ about 600
workmen, but, of course many of
them are unskilled laborers. We are
our own manufacturers, our own
agents, our own jobbers, and, to a
large extent, our own retailers.
There's a big saving in cutting down
four profits to one. We make a profit,
1 assure you. We are not in the busi
ness for our health. We deal iu vari
ous other things, by the way, but the
watch is the backbone of our busi
"Is the movement the same in prin
ciple as that of a more expensive
"Very nearly. The dollar wach is
really an evolution of the small clock,
for several years we experimented in
making a clock which could be carried
in the pocket. We made over 200,000
of these clocks, all the time working
over the problem of how to make it
smaller and cheaper. We made four
different watches, ranging in price
from 1 to $2. The movement is prac
tically the same in each one. The
dollar watch has a brass case, gilt or
nickel plated. With-the exception of
the other watches we make, it has the
smallest lantern pinion movement
made. Including plates, it is only
three-eights of an inch in thickness."
"Of course the watch itself is
thicker than this. A good deal of the
additional thickness is due to the fact
that it is wound and set as a clock is,
except that the back of the case closes
over the screws for this purpose. The
screw for winding has one of the
'wings," which fold down when not
iu use. Beside, it is the pivot for
setting. There is a cap over the
works in order to exclude dust, the
case uot being a double one. There
is not the fine adjustment which is in
expensive watches; there is no jeweling
or "engraving. The ornaments are ab
sent, but the necessities are there.
Only four turns of the winding screw
Till run the movement from thirty to
ikirty-six hours. There is a full com
plement of hands hour, minute and
second. The watch complete weighs
three ounces. The 1.25 watch is a
stem winder, but is set by the screw
at the back. The $1.50 watch is both
stem-winning and stem setting. The
$2 watch is silver-plated and has an
engraved case and back plate.
One point about the construction of
these watches is that many of the dif
ferent parts of the works which in an
ordinary watch are made of steel are
made of brass. The makers of the
watch say that they do not emphasize
this point in describing the watch
simply because there is a popular no
tion that brass is cheap and unde
sirable. They say that it is by no
means cheap, especially lately. They
also say that their watch will stand
rather rough treatment better than
one with delicate steel works. Al
though brass is liable to corrosion,
steel is a prey to rust, and, so say the
dollar watchmakers, the rust is worse
for the watch. They say, too, that the
dollar watch is especially valuable
where insensibility to magnetic influ
ences la desirable.
"We know cf several of our watches
which Teut through the Santiago cam
paign," said the manufacturer, "and
gave good satisfaction. Thev are sold
all over and to all classes of dk
The bankers and brokers buy them ua
well as the poor man. Men often go
hunting or fishing or some place where
they don't want to take an expensive
watch, and when they can get a good
one for a dollar they buy it and leave
their fine one where it will be safe.
I calculate that there are two million
dollar watches carried now and that
there will be another million before
1900 rolls around.
A PISCATORIAL PARADISE.
Such Is the Rangeley (Me.) Lake Region
Log Camps Run by Hotel.
Now is the time when everyone is
thinking of going a fishing. The first
touch of summer, shown in the bud
ding trees, the fresh green grass and
the clear blue spring skies, makes
one sigh for a breathing spell, a
chance to breath in God's fresh north
woods air, which expels the worn out
indoor vitiated air which has filled our
lungs during the past winter.
Nowhere in the United States do
brook trout grow as large as in the
Rangely Lakes and in no waters can
more trout be taken than in Moose
head Lake. ,

The Grand Lake region in Washing
ton county, Maine, is fast proving its
claims to affording as fine salmon and
trout fishing as can be had anywhere
Heretofore these waters have been
known to but a favored few, who kept
secret the charms of scenery and re
markable fishing which the lakes can
give, but this is being slowly noised
abroad and it is destined to become a
favorite place for many in future years.
The lakes are beautifully situated
in the midst of a rolling, semi-mountainous
country, and the hard wood
growth reaches to the water's edge,
there being no "dry kye" to offend
the eye, as is the case where other
lakes have been darned and overflown,
killing off the wood growth near the
The lakes are narrow, affording a'
continued changing vista of most beau
tiful scenes, and the waters are fed by
cold springs which bubble up through
a sand bottom strewn with boulders,
which make it an ideal place for the
breeding of trout salmon.
A few good camps are located on
the shores of the lakes, which are
best reached by rail to the Maine Cen
tral station at Winn and buckboard
