A WATCH STORY?
Some years ago an old gentleman lived
near Branchvillo who had two sons, the
largest of whom went to Charleston with a
fleet of timber. By cutting wood nnd birch
poles on tho way, ho was ablo by tho pro
?cccd.'i of their Balo to purchaso a silver
watch, the first ono over owned in tho family.
Of course it mado our horo somewhat proud
io hnvo a shining time piece, and he would
never let an occasion go by without pulling
it from his pookct, nnd shutting it up with
a loud click. It is a known faot that he
consulted Ids watch evory fifteen minutos
in tho day to soo what titno it was. Now
his father was n stingy old gentleman, and
although his son had worked for tho money
with which his watch was purchased, he,
the patornal guardian, did not think it right
that his overly proud boy should trillo away
so elegant nn ornament, and useful a pri/.c
as tho glittering beauty in question. So be
frequently warned his son how to use it.
But tho fact of it was, tho old gentleman
knew, no more about a watch and its mys
terious machauism than his son, as tho
Bcqual will show.
One Sun.lay afternoon?it was a Sunday
that the family had company?the owner of
the time peice was called up and asked for
the hour of tho day. lie pulled out his
turnip to find to his confusion that it bad
ceased to run. This fact was announced to
the head of tho family, who became terribly
incensed, and made use of such expression 8
as those : "I teld you, you wouldn't keep it
a week, you fool you. If you had kept it
in your pocket, instead of having it out and
opened all tli3 time, it would have been in
good order now. Hand it here to me, sir,
and let me see what's tlie matter with it."
Tho son done as he was hidden, and gave
the watch to his father. The old man
opened it, put on his spectacles and began
to examine for tho cause of trouble, with all
the inportaneo of a: would-be watch maker.
After working a while, he said to his boy ,
"Hand mo your pocket knife, you've got a
hair in it, you God blasted infernal fool. I
knew you had let trash get into it , or brok'ii
it in i-ome way. You ain't fit to have any
thing that you ain't. Watches were never
mado for "idle boys who do not know how to
handle them. While the father was talking
ho was busily turning the watch about n
order to get at the impediment to it run
ning. Finnally a hold was obtained on it
and with the expression, "Now I've got it"
jerked the hair-spring entirely out of the
w atch. The mistake was at once discover
ed, the old man put the blame on his wifo
for not giving him a clean hankerchief to
wipe Ids "specs" with, while the boy swore
his "daddy" ha 1 ruined him. "Tho old
coholctcd cuss" he says to this day, ''had no
more brains th.n his watch had hairs in
it." He always left homo after th it Sun lay
when his father had company. IL' said the
old man's style of "showing otr ' didn't pay.
