The Hamilton Watch
The Railroad Timekeeper of America"
The possession of Hamilton Watches by
5G per cent of the Railroad Men on Ameri
can Railroad where Ollicial Time Inspection
is maintained is a tribute to more than the
ph( nomenal accuracy of this great watch.
Railroad Men buy their own watches.
There are a number of watches that meet
the standards of accuracy required by the
Railroad Companies. The extraordinary
preferment shown Hamilton Watches is
partly due to other causes. For one thing
a Hamilton Watch has a rare and enduring
beauty a beauty indicative of mechanical
perfection and durability.
Labor D,v Story
"It's rightly nnmerl," prowled Mr.
Shaffer ns he drank his morning cof
fee. "Every holiday ought to be called
'Labor day' so far ns I am concerned.
Lo you know what I've got to do to
morrow, Helen ?" He put the question
aggressively, and Ills mnlden nunt look
ed pityingly nt Mrs. Shnfter.
"Xo, dear; what have you to do to
morrow?" nsked Helen serenelyv-
"Do!" sputtered her husbnud, pass
ing the tonst to Aunt Electa with 9
savage lunge to emphasize his remark.
"To begin with there's the lawn to
mow, the chicken pen to clean out, the
cellar to whitewash if you wouldn't
begin houseeleanlng so enrly, Ilelen, n
fellow might have n show once In
owhlle oversee thnt the six tons of
winter coal gets in nil right and clean
up after the conl man."
Later in the day, after Mr. Shnftor
had sunk into his Sunday afternoon
nnp in the hammock, Aunt Electa
called Helen into the summer house on
the lawn and talked long and earnest
ly to thnt young woman.
"Certainly, dear Aunt Electa," agreed
Helen sweetly. "James always retires
early on Sunday, nnd we can have our
own way about everything."
"For a married woman that will b
an unusual trent." And Aunt Electa's
eyes twinkled merrily.
"Then let me hasten its coming,'
cried Helen blithely. "I shall 'have an
early supper and hustle James off to
When James Shafter awoke the nt
morning he heard the unmusical clat
ter of a lawn mower and sniffed the
fragrance of freshly cut grass. "Good
Lord, it does seem as though Finley
might let a beggar rest a little in the
morning. It can't be more than 0
o'clock." ne craned his neck to loe
at the timepiece and noted with, satis-
"WHO THIS DICKENS OUT THE IiAWN?"
faction that his guess wns correct to 6
minute. Still bis opposite neighbor's
busy lawn mower was an unpleasant
reminder thnt his own grass needed
shaving that morning and after thsrt
was accomplished stretched the tasks
ho had enumerated the day before
chicken house, cellar and coal man.
"It's an imposition r growled Mr.
Shafter and turned over in bed.
The sun shining through a chink la
the closed blinds awakened him nt
last, and another glance at the clock
assured him thnt three hours hnd melt
ed away. It was now 0. Ho bounced
out of bed nnd Into his morning bath,
while his mind calculated how he
could divide the remainder of the
short end holiday into working shifts
nnd squeeze out time enough to read
He found a delicious breakfast
awaiting him in the cool nnd shaded
dining room, and as ho ate ho com
plained bitterly of the noise Finley
had made that morning with the de
tested lawn mower.
"Woke mo up ahead of time, Helen,
and I dropped off to sleep aud never
awoke ngalii until half an hour ago.
It's going to be a corcher too."
"It is hot already," agreed Helen
Shafter kissed her pink cheek and
murmured appreciation of the break
fast and so went out on the front pi
azza to survey the ragged lawn he
had left the night before. "I suppose
I muy ns well pitch in now as any
time," he muttered, and then stopped
Instead of the untidy lawn he hnd
worried over there stretched a smooth
expanse of velvety turf, nently trim
med alxmt the flower beds and newly
wet with the revolving sprinkler.
"Great Jove!" muttered Shafter, and
sought his wife, noting that his oppo
site neighbor's grass was untouched
"Helen, who the dickens cut th
lawn?" he demanded, puzzled.
"I did," she returned. "It's groat
sport. Such n time as I had! I was
afraid you would wake up."
Armed with hoe and shovel, he en
tered the chicken yard and prepared to
make the abode of these industrious
tenants quite trim and tidy, but some
magic hand had forestalled him here
also, for the chicken house hnd been
more thoroughly cleaned than it ever
had been under bis practiced hand,
and in addition a fresh coat of white
wash dazzled his eyes. Several busy
hens poked impatient heads nt him
from nest boxes filled with fresh hay.
"Humph!" muttered Mr. Shafter, nnd
carried the tools into the shed. Once
more he sought his wife. "HeleUj you
didn't clean that chicken house?" he
"No, I didn't," returned Mrs. Shat
ter, shelling peas on the side piazza.
"Aunt Electa is responsible for that."
"Aunt Electa!" shouted the horrified
husband. "Why why that's no sort
of work for an elderly lady"
"Who calls me an 'elderly lady?"'
demanded Aunt Electa from the door
way. "But, Aunt Electa, that chicken
house is not the sort of work"
"Go to, James," interrupted the good
lndy smiling; "stop arguing nnd enjoy
"Holiday!" snorted James from force
of habit, and then, with sudden recol
lection of how his work was dwin
dling, he reddened nnd sought the cel
lar to vent his discomfiture in slapping
whitewash on its stone walls. But
once more was he foiled again he was
dazzled, for the work was done. He
opened the door nnd peered Into the
coal bin in the desperate hope that
the coal man had neglected to come,
and he almost whooped with joy when
he saw that his hope was fulfilled,
ne was clattering in the seclusion of
that blackened, stone walled room
when he heard the shriek of the speak
ing tube in the outer cellar.
He answered it.
"James," said his wife's voice, -nnd
there was a tremor in its evenness
he wondered if she was laughing
"James, dear, just to make sure I tele
phoned the coal office nnd ns it is a
holiday they will not deliver until to
morrow. I can see about it when it
comes. Now, do clean yourself up and
try and enjoy your holiday, that's a
The "dear" choked helplessly. "Did
Aunt Electa do the cellar?" he asked
"Both of us we did it last night aft
er you went to bed. It was fun for
us.' You know we get tired of our
monotonous tasks. Please, James,
aren't you going to come upstairs. It
will soon be dinner time."
The newspaper lasted until dinner
time and after dinner was a hiatus to
be filled In some manner. James Shaf
ter was n man of activity, ne must
be doing something every moment nnd
however he might fume nnd sputter
over bis self Imposed tasks, ho took 0
certain enjoyment in them. Now, his
occupation gone, he wandered aimless
ly around the house nnd grounds, sat
awhile with his wife nnd nunt on the
piazza nnd then strolled down the road
for a solitary walk.
A wooded lane led him in a new di
rection, and presently he found him
self leaning over nn old picket fence,
surveying a weed grown vegetable gar
denswith disapproving eyes. A voice
stailied him, and be had glanced over
the shabby little old fashioned house
before he saw the open window in
which sat a man of his own age with
a gaunt, haggard face and sunken, pa
"I said . it was a pretty day," re
peated the man in the window.
"Yes," returned Shafter cordially;
"it's hot, but mighty pleasant. You've
got a nice little place here."
"It was nice before I got cut up in
the railroad wreck. I planted thnt
garden, sir, and now I can't keep the
weeds out of it. My daughter's got
the ambition to do it, but she's youug
and frail, and there's plenty for her
to do waiting on a sick man and tak
ing in work from the mill to support
me." He spoke bitterly, and it was
plain to be Been thnt be resented his
innbility to work. "It's Labor day,
sir, and it seems as if I would give
most anything to get in line with the
boys and march, but not for me!"
He held up the stump of an arm,
and in response to Shufter's inquiry
said he had lost a foot also. Ho was
too poor to employ a lawyer to take
his case against the railroad.
"Where's your gnrden tools?" de
manded ' Shafter, entering the gate.
And five minutes later he was stripped
of coat and vest and working in the
garden with hoe and rake. The sick
man talked to him from the window,
and his gratitude to the stranger whs
pitiful. When the garden stood forth
weedless, with straight brown earth
ridges crowned with green and the
corn rustled in the breeze that came
up from the south, James Shafter
straightened his bent back and mop
ped Ills dripping face.
"God bless you, sir!" muttered the
man awkwardly as his benefactor pre
pared o go. "It isn't every gentle
man would do what you've done,
"I've got two hands and two feet,
aud I guess that's what they're for."
returned Shafter quite as awkwardly.
"I have a friend who is a lawyer, and
if you like I'll bring him around to
morrow and go over your claim. You
ought to pull a lot of money out of
"I don't know how to thank you,
sir," and tears stood in the man's
eyes. Shaffer's face, sunburned,
sweaty aud very dirty, grinned up at
him with a smile that chased the dis
content from it forever.
"It isn't me. There's two women
up nt my house who are responsible
for my meeting you, and, say, you
(now you've done me more good than
t enn ever do you. I've always done
lota of work and liked It. but some
how I never tasted the sweetness of
doing it before. I've got to get along
and tell those dear women."
"It's always the women folks that's
back of everything, God bless 'em!"
said the man in the window, and the
words were eehoed in Shaffer's heart.
