A SPRING IN A WATCH
AN IMPORTANT BIT OF STEEL THAT
Watchmakers Say That Sudden Change*
of Weather Are Dangerous to These
Uncertain Pieces of Mechanism —Maln-
•prince in Expensive Watch/' h.
"Mainsprings are very much like peo
ple," said a Broadway watchmaker the
ether day. "They are as susceptible to
extreme degrees of heat and cold as
human beings. When the thermometer
is hovering around the freezing point or
dancing away up in the nineties the lit
tle mainspring will give up in disgust
and uncoil itself and die, just as men
Succumb to freezing or sunstroke."
This uncertain piece of mechanism is
supposed to be adjusted to meet the
various degrees of temperature, but
when the change is very great and
comes with short notice there is nothing
that can prevent them from snapping.
They are made in Switzerland of the
very finest quality of steel, absolutely
flAwless. Very often the watchmaker
can detect a bad spring before putting
it in the watch, either by its color or
the softness of its spring. These have
been too highly tempered in the making,
and instead of being subjected to merely
a red heat the fire has been brought to
white heat, thus weakening the strength
of the metal. The finest watches that are
handled by reliable dealers are put
through a "cooking and freezing" proc
ess before they are sold, for the purpose
of testing their reliability in all temper
The watch is first placed in a little
metal box, which is made airtight.
Then a strong gas flame is turned on
the under surface of the box and is kept
there for two or three hours, so that the
watch is so hot at the end of that time
that it could not be touched with the
bare hand. FrOm this it is immedi
ately taken and put into another me
tallic box which is buried in ice. There
the costly watch is allowed to freeze
for an equal length of time, when its
torture ceases and the examination is
made. If during this excessive test the
watch appears to have ticked merrily
on without deviating a fractional part
of a second it is placed back in the case
and marked "guaranteed for two years."
The mainspring is the first piece of
mechanism that succumbs to the test.
If it survives nothing else need be.f eared.
Mainsprings are, however, about the
only part of a watch that the jeweler
cannot successfully diagnose. They can
guarantee any of the numberless little
wheels or pivots or balances that go to
make up the anatomy of the watch, but
the mainspring has as yet baffled the
most skilled makers of watches of all
countries. It is not so much the severe
extremes of the weather that prove fatal
to the spring as it is the process of
changing from hot to cold, or vice versa
Like the human frame, if the ribbonlike
little coil of steel can withstand the ef
fects of this change it may be considered
proof against breaking when the change
to normal weather comes.
Many people who have been possessors
of new watches but a Hii.ut. store cuuiv
into the dealer's with blood in their eyes,
declaring that they havo paid an enor
mous price for the timepiece and the
mainspring has broken after only a
'"That is nothing,"remarked the jewel
er. "We havo them snap in our case
before the watch has ever been shown
for sale." Others imagine that they
might have wound the watch too tight,
but tbis does not harm it. It is rather
the jerky, hurried winding that will
eventually tell on the temper of the
metal. Every good stem winder has a
stop placed in the stem, which prevents
the winding too tight.
Damp weather has an ill effect on
mainsprings, and in England they do
not as a rule last as long as in this coun
try. A severe thunder and lightning
storm also frequently proves disastrous
to the durability of the spring. A dealer
who took in seventy-nine watches on one
day said that one summer on a day im
mediately following a terrific electrical
storm there were twenty-one watches
brought into his store within five hour a
for new mainsprings. The cost of a new
mainspring is the small part of making
such repair. It is tho putting them in,
the labor expended, that costs. It costs
from twelve to fifteen dollarß to put a
mainspring in the Jurgensen watch and
a little less in a Patek Phillippe, while
in a cheaper American make it may
cost only fifty cents or a dollar.
A man purchased a $300 Jurgensen
from a leading dealer several years ago,
and shortly after he left for a tour
around the world. He was gone a year,
and when he returned he went back to
the dealer with bis watch and com
plained: "Here's a watch I paid you
$800 for a year ago, and while I was
traveling abroad it lost two minutes.
You guaranteed it, and I want you to
make it good." The watch was placed
in the window with this card be
"This watch lost only two minutes in
a year in a trip around the world. Price
$800." It sold within an hour.
It is said that one bar of iron costing
$6 will produce $250,000 worth of main

Xho Anther of an Oi l C»a>i>Ktgu Song.
Tliero is satisfactory evidence that the
words of "Tippecanoe and Tyler, Too,"
were written by A. C. Roes, of Zanes
ville, O. This was the original song.
The words tiien comprised only a com
paratively few versoß. The song was
such a success that additions were made
to them in all direction. Here is an
instance in point. The Whigs unexpect
edly carried the state of Maine, electing
Edward Kent by a very small margin
for governor. This verse immediately
Have you heard from Maine, Maine, Maine,
good news and true?
It went, hell bent, for Governor Kent, and
Tippecanoo nnd Tyler too.
And with them we'll beat little Van, Tan,
Ob, Van is a "used up man," etc.
As regards the music, it was adapted
from a familiar air of the times, which
had the not very attractive name of
"Little Pig's Tail." Henry Russell was
an Englishman, and at that period was
the most popular concert singer in this
country. He was a composer, but he
did not compose thjs tune, and probably
would not have been very proud if he
had been credited with its authorship.
It is altogether likely that the Whigs
engaged him to sing it in Boston, as he
told our correspondent that he did sing
it as he stood in a window near the cor
ner of Washington and Milk streets.
Mr. Russell must be a gentleman well
advanced in years by this time. It is a
great many years since he ceased to sing
in public in this country. It may be in
teresting to know that he is the father
of W. Clark Russell, the popular writer
of nautical novels.—Boston Herald.
Coins of Value.
"Some pennies are worth a good deal
of money," said a dealer in coins. "If
you come across an old collection of
copper cents in an out of the way corner
you will do well to examine their dates
carefully. From the point of view of
the numismatist their value depends
largely upon their condition. For ex
ample, for a cent of 1799 in a fair state
of preservation we pay five dollars, but
for a specimen of the same issue in first
rate condition we would pay from ten
to twenty-five dollars, and for a perfect
cent of 1799—that is, as bright and sharp
as the day it was coined—we will pay
"Do not attempt to clean coins that
are in fine condition. They should be
held only by the edges in handling them,
and ought to be kept wrapped carefully
in chamois skin or soft tissue paper or
laid on velvet. Gold and silver coins
may be rinsed, not washed, in hot water
and soap. Copper coins should be placed
in sweat oil only to remove grease and
dirt. Acids and scouring will ruin anj
coin of worth. Age does not necessarily
make value in coins. The old Spanish
silver pieces current in this country'
from 1700 to 1800 are worth no more
than their face, and the same is the case
with cents of 1798, 1802 and 1803, as well
as with half dollars of dates between
1805 and 1885."—Washington Star.
