A watchmaker who Is not up to these clrc-

glass Into one eye, looks at the works and
cays It needs cleaning. You leave It and
he cleans It, and still it won't go. Every
thing is all right about tho watch as far as
looks go, but tbo watch won't go. Then
ho cither tells you your watch is worn out
and can't bo fixed, or olso goes to another
w atchmakcr and finds out that tho watch Is
magnetized, and that tho only way to fix It
Is to demagnetize 11, It Is all slmplo
enough. The electric cars are thoroughly
permeated with tho powerful current of
electricity that runs them.
A largo part of tho works of a watch aro
of steel, the better the watch tho finer tem
per the steel Is and thomoro susceptible
to the Influence of electricity. Tho elec
tricity1 turns each ono of theso steel pinions
and levers and springs Into a magnet and
they stick to each other so tightly that the
watch can't run. It )s all very simple, but
how to mnko tho magnets cease tp bo mag'

complicated and somo electrical parapher

'some watchmakers, v hen they got a mag
netized watch to fix, send ltto'Now York to

neer, or whatever you call tho man who

cheap clock nre brass and iron, lnstoad of
being steel, and they cannot bo magnetized
by any amount of electricity.

"Certainly," replied Mr. Johnson.
Tbo crowd watched htm as ho pulled out

It is estimated that thero ard 20,000 moro

all classes, of course, and this Is probably a
correct flgurlug, for no matter wheroyou
go, whether on tho streets, in tho theatres
or at n private entertainment, you aro
struck at once by the fact that tho women
greatly outnumber the meu.
Tbo main reason for this backwardness
In matrimonial matters is that tho avcrago
young man who nourishes In Washington
society has not sufllctent money to support
a wife and family, and he is afraid to take
, a venture unless ho can secure a wlfo who
has means of her own, and that kind Is
scarce where a placo Is mado up so largely
of politicians and where business chances
ore so few.

Nearly oil Congressmen are married men,

Thero is probably us much fortune-hunting

It Is recarded the very acme of social

Tho Snmoan IlInicuHy,
W.siii.notom, April 7. ilifoc Cutie:
1 am astonished that among the many ver
sions about tho cause of the Samoan affair
not bnco tho true cause was mentioned. It
shows how little even tho Germans know of
llfo In Germany as It is now. Tho truth Is
that the whole affair was only an old Ills
marckl.au election trick.
Each year when the Retelistag assembles
thero Is brought up a bill for either more
soldiers or more war ships. Each year
theso bills aro voted down by tho House,
and as n last rcsourco tho Chancellor (Bis
marck) dissolves the Parliament. Now
tho pcoplo would choose exactly tho same
representatives, but Just then must arise
some quarrel with a foreign power. Tho
German press takes up the war cry" and ox
horts tho pcoplo to vote for loyal men and
a larger army. Of course tho liberal papers
cry out against this, but to little account.
In 'SO It was war with France (10,000
sohllemon the bill),
Iu '87 it was war with Russia (10,000
soldiers on the bill).
In '88 It was war with England, as war
ships were on the bill.
In '80 with the United States (ships again
on the bill ). With a strange mouotony each
' tlmo the quarrel Is caused by German
border officials; with tho same monotony
these officials turn friendly as soon as the
j oloctlons aro over.
Such a trifle as a few hundred lost lives
' or millions of monoy aro nothing, as long
as tho plans of tho truly "Iron Chancellor"
i are executed. Vehihs.

With a hcart-acUa'aud a longing,

8he Would reach the dear old hearthstone;
Tee, she would be carried thence."

Busy feet aped on their way,
And special train was chartered,
And they boro her homo that day.
Faster, faster, whirled tbe coaches;
Faster still, with lightning speed,
Till the engineers grew dizzy,
.Hut to danger paid no heed.
Who can tell what she was thinking
As the whirling, flying train
Rushed with roar of desperation,
That she might see home again.
Did she see the fond, brave facts

which had sunk much In places, nnd -was
altogether In a dilapidated state, Is being
rclald preparatory to tho uso of that por

which covered tho gravo of Bishop Oliver
