that of a toy watch, to which a pendulum '
attached by fine wire. This can be made of
a bit of cardboard, or, better still, of a
piece of brass wire, with a large gold bead
at the enrt. The dial of the watch is fast
ened securely behind the top square. A
piece of curd, the exact width of the box,
covered with silver paper, is cut in a fancy
shape, dei'orated with gold and gummed
to the box above the dial; a large round
headed pin can be added for a ball at the
top. A g ild ornament occupies the space
between the glass panels, and a larger and
more elaborate one the space between the
lower one and the bottom of the box. Sil

box. The clock stands on a small piece of

AS OLD FASHIONED WELL.
An old fashioned well can be carried out
as follows: First procure a round box
(minus tie li t) 2 inches in diameter and
the same in drpth. Cover this with silver
paper, ad lint; rims of gold perforated card
one-half inch wide top and bottom. Glue
two strirs of strong cardboard one-half
inch wide at opposite sides of the box. They
should be about 5 inches in height, and
the tops should be pointed and connected
by a wire, which helps to carry the roof;
they are further strengthened by the addi
tion of cr ss pieces of cardboard, fastened
on about 1 inch from the top of the sup
ports. .Directly under these crossbars a
strong wire supporting a cork (to which is
fastened the chain and bucket) is run
through i be supports. When the wire has
been passed through the second support it
is then lnt suddenly downward about S
inches; a small wooden handle can be at
tached to the end. The roof is formed of a
piece of cardboard, 5 inches by 3 inches;
this, with the supports, is covered with red
paper fancifully decorated with g ild. The
lining of the well should also be red. Part
of a toy silver watch chain answers ad
mirably for the well rope; it is secured to
the cork by a small tack. A tiny wooden
or tin bucket can be bouzln at any toy
Bbop and afT.xed to the end. If property
made it should really wind up and down
in the mcst realistic manner possible.
A Game Called Trunk racking.
This game requires a good memory and
some ingenuity. The first person says, "I
pack my sister's (or any other relative's)
trunk wi;h her best bonnet." The second
continues, "1 pack my sister's trunk with
her camei's hair shawl and her best bon
net." Tiie third takes it up with, "I pack
my sister's trunk with a box of tooth pow
der, her camel's hair shawl and her best
bonnet." The fourth person in the party
adds, "I pack my sister's trunk with a
pair of nickel plated scissors, a box of tooth
powder, her camel's hair shawl and her
best boniiet." The next player then says,
"1 pack my sister's trunk with a box of
sewing machine needles, a pair of nickel
plated scissors, a box of tooth powder, her
camel's bair shawl and her best bonnet."
Thus the game proceeds, each one mention
ing some new article to go into the trunk
and repa.ting the list given by his, prede
cessor. If a blunder occurs, for which, of course,
every one- is on the alert, "Haiti" is called,
and the c elinquent either drops out of the
game or else pays a forfeit named by some
member of the party whom he selects as
his judge. The next person then essays to
repeat tba ever increasing list, which will
usually consist of droll or preposterous ar
ticles wuh long and complicated names
which, of course, render them difficult to
remember and to articulate readily. When
the fifteenth item is reached "Game" is
called, and the packing commences over
again. A smaller number of articles may,
of course, be agreed upon at the beginning
at the gane, and if there are not so many
persons n the party the game may go
round tha circle more than once.

Trying trt Mare a Bank Clerk aa4 to
Reality Helping a Swindler.
A queer story is told of a Liverpool bank
officer who received a private letter from
his friend, a member of a London banking
firm. It is said that one of their employees,
the son of their highly esteemed cashier
a man who was probity itself had gone
away with several thousand pounds of se
curities. If the son should be arrested and
placed in the prison's dock the old man
would never lift his head again. The firm
was, therefore, resolved to do all that lay
In its power to save its aged and valued
servant from the misery and shame which
would certainly overtake him if his son's
sin became known.
The writer thought that in all probabil
ity the young man would call with his se
curities at the Liverpool bank, and on the
strength of his connection with the Lon
don bank ry to negotiate them. If so,
the London Hanker wanted the Liverpool
banker to sel.w the property and keep it
until he heard from the London banker
again, to lecture the young man soundly,
buy him a ticket to New York and give
him f 1,000 with which to begin the world
again. The London banker was going to
Paris for a fortnight, so that the Liverpool
banker didn't need to write to him about
the affair until that time. He also wanted
the secret kept from everybody, as far as
possible, both for the sake of the London
bank, the young man's father and the
young man himself.
The Liverpool banker, knowing that
many a young man had gone wrong who
might have been saved at the proper mo
ment, decided to comply with his friend's
Soon after a nice, frank looking young
man of the name referred to was ushered
In to him, and, saying that he desired to
travel, explained in a constrained and ner
vous manner that he had some securities
on which he would like to realize. He
said he didn't understand business, and
perhaps was going awkwardly to work,
but the ship for New York was to sail that
day ard he was in a hurry.
In reply the Liverpool banker handed
him the letter he had just received; As he
re,id it his breast heaved with emotion,
tears came into his eyes and he finally
burst into a fit of weeping. He made a
full confession, and the banker, after point
ing out the heinousness of his crime, of
fered to do what the letter requested. The
young man kissed the banker's hand in
token of his gratitude, said that he had
been foolish and wicked, and would gladly
go to another country and redeem himself.
The banker then gave him the $1,000,
bought him a first class steamer ticket and
gave him a dinner at the restaurant. But
nothing he could do or say seemed to raise
the young man's spirits. He was so sad
and broken down that the banker really
pitied him. As he bade him goodby from
the ship's side, the hard old man could not
restrain his tears as he thought of the
young and repentant sinner he had saved
from a life of crime.
At the end of the fortnight, when he sup
posed the I.ondon banker would have got
back from Paris, the Liverpool banker
wrote to him in great glee of his success in
carrying out his wishes, and of the contrite
youth who had set sail for new scenes with
the banker's blessing.
He got the following reply from London:
"You must be mad. Our cashier never
had a son. No securities are missing. Per
haps you have been sold."
It was true. He had. The letter was
forged. The securities were worthless. He
had thrown away $1,000, a passage to Kew
York, a good dinner and a good deal of ad
vice upon an ingenious swindler. Boston

If an electric current be passed through
a solution of metallic salt, such salt is de
composed and the metal mav le deposited
on a plate suitably arranged for the pur
pose. In treating solution of a gold salt,
chloride of gold for example, the first de
posit of the metal will appear of a beauti
ful and most delicate piuk color. As the
deposit thickens it changes to a deep, rich
purple. Ice purple then turns to a fine
green color, which darkens perceptibly as
the process goes on, finally changing to
the metallic luster of burnished gold.
