Harry Lock wood, a mii-k-lajer, made
a valusb'e discovery tn cut ting a Pom
pnliau bilok, which he was about to
put In a large segmental arch. The
brck in question was a very hard one
and Lockwnod was about to throw It
down after cutting a few pieces off
when he' discovered a shiny plee of
meial proj-etlng from the inner pait.
After much cutting he succeeded in
freeing the metal, which proved tn be
the back of a gold watch, on the inner
pait of which was the inscription:
EigHtie Buxbv, Wilmington, Del.,
for saving the life of my daughter,
Au,r. 13. 1889. Wilfred Powell."
Lock win id took his find to a dealer in
old gold, who said the quality of tbe
piece was excellent, ami as the inscrip
tion made the piece quite a curiosily
he offered the fortunate brick layer
$10 for it, which Lockwo m! accepted.
