How Watch Cases are Made. In buying a silver watch case great care should be tuken to secure one that is solid silver throughout. The cap of most cheap silver cases is made of a composition known as albata, which is a very poor substitute for silver, as it turns black in a short time. The backs of such cases are made much thinner than those of an all silver case, being robbed in order to make the cap thicker and get in as much as possible of the cheap metal. Another important point in aeilver case is the joints or hinges, which should be mode of gold. Those of most cheap cases are made of Bilvcr, which U not a suitable metal for that purpose. In a brief period it warps, bends and spreads apart, allowing the backs to become loose upon the cose and admitting the dust and dirt that accummulate in the pocket. The Keystone SilverW'atch Cases are only made with silver caps and gold joints. St. Idiots. Mo., Fb. 17, inn.

All the great pow ers. except Turkey, have assented to the conference. A treaty is reported to have been made between France and China, giving France a protectorate over Tonquin and Anam.

Since the defeat of .the Morrison tariff bill by the aid of most of the Democratic members from Ohio, the Free Trade Democrats have sworn vengeance against Senator Payne as a Presidential candid jte on account of his protection views and he may now be fairly considered as out of the ring at Chicago. Mr. Hewitt, of New York, has pre pared a new tariff bill.chacging some of the schedules of the present law and making some corrections in ac cordance with suggestions made by the Secretary of the Treasury, and also placing iron ore, salt and lum ber on the free list. Mr. Hewitt in tended to introduce his bill as substitute for the Morrison bill, had the latter not been so summarily de feated, but since that event it is doubtful whether he will take any further action, at least during the present session. ABOUT THE NATIONAL NORMAL UNVERSITY AT LEBANON, O. A few Points about the Oldest Normal School in the United States. DEATH OF THE PRESIDENT'S WIFE—A GLANCE AT THE TOWN—SALOONS AND CHURCHES— ABOUT THE N. N. U.—ITS PROGRESS—SPIRIT OF THE STUDENT AND TEACHERS—FACILITES OF THE STUDENT AND TEACHERS—FACILITES — STATISTICS — GENERAL HEALTH OF STUDENTS—PROF. J. B. HOLDBROOK. Editobs News The arrival of the News every week reminds us of the fact that we promised you a letter after reaching the N. N. U. Although we have not fulfilled our promise, it was not because we had forgot ten it, but because we have had but little time Dot devoted to actual work. A true "Norrualite" is always busy. The first thing we are called upon to chronicle is the sad death of Mrs. Holbrook, the President's wife. She had been iu poor health for several years, but gradually grew worse, and dieuVyesterday afternoon at a little past 4 o'clock. SchiKjl is now closed and will remain closed until Tuesday next. The funeral services will be held in the Un iversity Hall to-morrow (Saturday) at 2 p.m. It may interest some of the readers of the News to have a short sketch of Lebanon, and the "Old Normal" here. Lebanon is a thriving town of almost the size of Hills boro, but the actual population of the town, excluding students, is somewhat less than that of Hillsboro. It is considered one of the healthiest towns of the State, and is a good location for the Normal. The streets are well planted with shade trees. There are several saloons and billiard halls in town, but there is very little drunkenness seen. Of course it would be better to be rid of all the saloons, but their evil influence here is not as great as in many towns of Lebanon's size. On the other band, there are several churches here, which are doing much good and are attended by a large majority of the students. One can hardly fail to find Ids church here. Among them we name the Presbyterian Church, Key. J. P. Seott ; the M. E. Church, ltev. D. C. Vance ; the Bap tist Church, Kev. H. A. Sumrell ; the Cum berland Presbyterian Church, ltev. 11. J. Heard; the German Keform Church, Kev. E. GerfeD, Professor of German iu the Un iversity. To return to the school. This, the oldest Normal school iu the United States, was founded in 1K55 by Alfred Holbrook, its present President, ami is now holding its ll'Jth session. It is tho futher of all Nor mals, and has iu use the very best normal methotU. Although for the first eltveu years of its existence, the Normal was man aged under a code of laws and had compul sory reiiuiremeuts, it Iiuh long since abol ished all these methods, and there is now no compulsion whatever, the school being thriftier as a consequence. President A. Holbrook is uow iu his tiHtb. year, but still always active in bis work. He continues to teach several classes iu the Uuiversty, and always goes tnto his work with a vim scarcely equalled by younger men. He always inspires bis pupils with the same spirit, lie is the author of two professional works and two text books. The two ruftsiuuitl works are "School Man agement" and "Normal Methods." The last named has been translated into the Jap anese by the National authorities of that country. His text books are both English Grammar.. It may bo argued by some that tho energy and activity so often spoken of as being predoininent elements in the work of the students of the Normal, arc nothing but other terms for cramming and skipping. Now, we claim the re is no such thing here. Ik'cause a good deal is accomplished in a short time, results from tho superior meth ods and instruction given. The students of this University are as healthy and nctivo as you will likely find anywhere. Out of about 3(1.(100 different persons who have attended here, a very small per cent, have died while at school. Only one suicido 1ms ever occdrred in school, that of a Mr. Cunningham a few weeks since. The school possesses one of the finest and best school libraries in the country. It is free for the use of all the students and con tains several thousand volumes on all sub- cts. If you should go into the library you would see the room full of students lis busy as bees. Iu fact the minority of the students work hard at all their studies, and are reworded accordingly. And is not that the case everywhere? Will any young man or woman succeed without applying every energy, and putting forth every effort to ac complish a definite work ? The same prin ciple applies here that is required every where that is, effnrt. A young man who can't Biicceed where hard work is required. will not succeed here no, nor anywhere else. We have not said much of the facilities of the school, or of the general manage ment and work, all of which might be in teresting to many of your readers. Wo do not write this as an advertisement for the N. N. U. at all, but simply because wo be lieve what we have said, and to give those who desire to know more of the school, a hotter view of the work being accomplished hero. Wo might have said other things that would have interested the readers more, but we may write again in tho future. Wo will close with an item or two concerning Highland county. There are about twenty students here from Highland. Tho following are the names of some of them, as we were unable to obtain the names of all ; E. J. Burns, Elmer Beots, B. P. Faris, J. C. Caldwell, Joe Fultz, J. W. Hurst, Frank Matthews, H. L. Garrett, O. N. Sams, W. E. McCoy, B. L. VauWiukle, N. Wallace Williams, Henry G. Williams, Sigel Koush, Miss Metta Williams, and others. Thus it may be seu that Highland is pretty well repre sented here. Ohio is first iu attendance here, Kentucky and Indiana being second and third. Kentucky had one hundred and seventy representatives here last year, iu the teacher's department. Another item we want to place before your readers is, that Prof. J. B. Holbrook will be one of the instructors at the Teacher's Institute next August. HIGHLAND NORMALITE. LEBANON, O., May 9, 1884. This assertion may be considered by Borne to be an error. Tho facts are thtHC : In the year 1H05 the Southwestern Normal School was started at Lebanon, and A. Holbrook was called upon by the leading members of his profession, to tabo charge of it. if u accepted tiie position and has ever since been at the head of the school, which soon afterwards changed its name. Ho Professor Holbrook really founded the National Normal University. Peterson's Magazine for June is already on our table: ahead, as usual, of all competitors, and getting better and better, as it seems to us, every month. The principal engraving is a steel one "Waiting For A Bite" and is graphic and humorous beyond words. The leading fashion-plate double in size, printed from steel, and colored by hand. "Peterson" is now the only magazine that goes to the expense of these beautiful af fairs. There are also several pat terns in the popular cross-stitch, printed in colors, besides nearly fifty wood-cuts of fashions, embroideries, crewel-work, etc. The literary con tents are even better than usual. the humorous line we have a story "Josiah Allen's Wife," and another, "A Rolling Stone," a Virginia dialect one, by Mrs. Sheffey Peters. Mrs. Ann S. Stephens continues her capi tal novelet, "Her Season in Washing ton," and other love-stories are con tributed by Frank Lee Benedict, etc., etc. Really, it is a problem how good a magazine can be published so low a price, which is only two dollars a year, with great deductions to clubs. A new volume begins with the next number, so that now is especially good time to subscribe. Specimens are sent gratis, if written for, to persons wishing to get clubs. It appears to us that every lady of refinement ought to take this magazine. Address, Charles J. Pet erson, 306 Chestnut st., Philadelphia, Pa. An improved bulldog is owned a New.Yorlt man.

Some Interesting Facts Concerning the Men Who Stand Closest to the Chief Executive. is so at an up by up Visitors who, from curiosty or bus iness, have called at the White House, must have been impressed by the courteous yet s stematic manner with which they are received and escort ed through the mansion. The gen tlemen whose duty it is to receive all persons coming to the White House are Colonel K. S. Denmore, Mr. John T. Rickanl and Mr. T. F. Pendle, and they hiive occupied their present po sitions through the various adminis trations since and even during the war. Mr. Pendel was President Lin coln's body-guard ; saw him to his carriage the fatal night on which he visited Ford's theater, and he now has in his possession the blood stain ed coat which Mr. Lincoln wore on that memorable occasion. There is not a public man in America to-day who does not know, and who is not known, by these gentlemen, and the reminescences of public and social life which they can recount would fill a congressional volume. During the weary yet exciting years of war ; through the more' peacful times of Grant s administration ; while Hayes held the reins of government, and when Garfield was shot, it was these men who stood in the executive man sion, welcoming the advent of each new administration, bowing at its de parture, and receiving both martyrs through its portals. During that long, hot and never to be forgotten summer when President Garfield lay between "two worlds," the nation became aware of the deadly malarial influence which hung about the White House. But all through that period these three men never deserted their posts for a single day, although each one was suffering intensly. In conversation with the writer, Col. Denmore said: It is impossible to describe the tortures I have undergone. To be compelled to smile and treat the thousands of visitors who come here daily with courtesy when one is in the greatest agony requires a tremen dous effort. All that summer I had terrible headaches, heart-burn and stilling sensation that sometimes took away my breath. My appetite was uncertain and I felt severe pains in the small of my back. I was under the doctor's care with strict instructions not to go out of the house but I remained on duty nevertheless. You would be surpris ed to know the amount of quinine took ; on some days it was as much as sixteen grains." "And was Mr. Rickard badly off, too?" "I should think he was. Why, time and again we have picked him up and laid him on the mantel, here in the vestibule, he was so used up." "Yes," exclaimed Mr. Rickard, was so weak I could not rise after lying down without help, and could only walk with the aid of two canes, and then in a stooping position. Oh, we have been in a pretty bad condition here, all of us." "And yet you are all the embodi ment of health," said the writer, he looked at the three bright and vigorous men before him. "Oh, yes," said Mr. Rickard, "we have not known what sickness was for more than a year." "Have you some secret way overcoming malaria and its attendant horrors ?" "I think we have a most certain way," replied Colonel Denmore, "but it is no secret. You see; abcut two years ago my wife began to grow blind, and I was alarmed at her con dition. She finally became so she could not tell whether a person were white or black at a distance of ten feet. One of her lady friends advis ed her to try a certain treatment that had done wonders for her, and make a long story short, she did and was completely cured. This in duced me to try the same means my own restoration and as soon as found it was doing good I recom mended it to my associates and have all been cured right here in stronghold of malaria and kept perfect health ever since by means of Warner's Safe Cure. Now I am not a believer in medicines general, but I do not hesitate to that I am satisfied I should have died of Bright's disease of the kid neys before this had it not been this wonderful remedy. Indeed, use it as a household medicine give it to my children whenever they have any ailments." "Yes," exclaimed Mr. Tende!, use it in my family all the while have found it the most efficient rem edy we have ever employed. I know of very many public men who using it to-day and they all speak well of it." "I weigh 160 pounds to-day" Mr. Rickard, "and when my physic ians told me over .1 year ago I could not hope to recover I weighed pounds. lTndr curb . n fl n n c m-iti "V cannot wonder that 1 consider the best medicine before the Ameri can people." The above statements from these gentlemen need no comments. They are voluntary and outspoken expres sions from sources which are the high est in the land. Were the slightest question regarding their authenticity they would not be made public, but as they furnish such valuable truths for all who are suffering, we unhesi tatingly publish them for the good of all. As when She was Young. "I have used Parker's Hair lialsani and like it better than any similar preparation I know oT," writes Mrs. Kllen Pi rry. wife of Kev. P. I'erry. of 't,ldiironk Springs, Mass.

Since I bi gan applying the IliiWm my hair hits stopped falling out. audi lind that it is a perfectly harmless and agreeable dressing." may A little while ago, the writer (a Methodist) as mayor of a town, gave a permit to the Baptists to move their church edifice through the streets. When il had reached about half the distance, there was some hitch for a couple of day. On pass ing it and seeiDg the pastor, Rev. Dr. M., the writer remarked : "Your church moves rather slowly for one run by water power." "Oh," quick ly responded Dr. M., "the truth is, we attempted to imitate our Metho dist brethren and run on dry land, and got stalled." Original, in Prai rie Farmer. Buy the Right Thing To-day.
