The military committee of the House
agreed recently to amend the armv an
proprmtion when it comes up by a sec
tion prohibiting thej use of 'troop at the
polls, like that which Mr. Hayes at the
extra session failed to veto. This will
excite a more protracted debate iu the
House than it did last year, and equally
as bitter discussion; in tlte Senate as it
did then. It is known that the stalwarts,
and "even some regarded as conservative
Republicans, regretted last session having
allowed this section to pass the House as
easily as it did, and it was a knowledge
of this fact that made Democratic Sena-

It cannot properly bo said that this

HOW WATCHES ARE MADE.
It will be apparent to anj one, who will ex
amine a SOLil uold w atch, inai asiae iron
the necessary thickneM for engraving and pol
ixhins. a larire proportion of the precious met
al used, is needed only to stiffen and hold the
ensraved portion in place, and supply the
necessary solidity and strength. The surplus
gold is actually need lens o iar as utility and
beauty are concerned. In James i0SS
PATENT' GOLD WATCH CASES,
this watte of precious metal -is overcome, and
th same soliditv and strength produced
at from one-third io one half ol the uf.ua 1 cost
of solid cases. This process is of the most
simple nature, as follows: A plate ot nick!
composition metal, especially adapted to th
purpose, has two plates of solid gold solder
ed one on each nde. The three are then pass
ed between oIisbed steel rollers, ard the re
suit is a strip of heavy plated composition
from which the case, hacks," centre, bezel
&c, are cut and sliaped by suitable die and
former. The gold in these cases issunicient
Iv thick to admit of all kinds of chasing, en
graying and enamelling ; the engraved cases
have been carried nnlil worn perfectly pmoot
by time and use without removing the gold.
This is the only Case Made withTwo
Plates of Solid Gold Warranted
bv Special Certificate!
