I'(JST0KKK;K IS UKK1.Y TO UK LOCATED IN CTTV Ilt lMiINT,. It was learned this morning that Mayor (Iordon has sent the city's bid for the post office to Congressman W. V Grout in Washington - with instructions to use his influence to have the bid ac cepted. It will be remembered that the liid which the city presented to the officials in Washington was returned by them a couple of days ago. As the bid contain ed a number of proviso.es, the officials in Washington would not accept it. It was also thought that Inspector Willis used his influence to have the bid ic jected, as ho has a grudge against the city for not furnishing temporary quar ters last winter when the opera house burned. After Mayor Gordon had received the bid, a number of prominent citizens, who were especially desirous of having the postoffice located in the city build ing, called on him and askid "that the bid be sent to Congressman Grout and sec if he could adjust matters. After the Congressman received the bid and Mr. Gordon's letter, he wrote Mr. Gordon and also had a talk with him over the long distance telephone. He as sured the mayor he would do his best. Last evening Mayor (iordon received a telegram from Mr. Grout which read : "I have presented the bid to the post office officials and it will be all 4ght." It can be inferred from the message that the city's bid will bo accepted. 'The successful bidder will probably be an nounced by Friday or Saturday. AN EXPERIENCE PARTY. A XOVKI. AND ISTKIiKSTIXO KXTERTAIN MENT AT THE IIAI'TIST Cllt'ItCH. About ;J00 people attended the "ex perience" party at the liaptist church iast evening. Several months ago invitations were issued to the ladies of the church and others to earn a dollar for the church and tell their experience in earning the same in rhyme. Those experiences were read last evening. . The program was begun with singing "Life's Journey", by. tbe xaaH qijartet, ibitffi&,1rtin'' prayer by the pastor": Then came the reading of the poetical efforts of the money earners by Mrs. W. A. Perry, Miss Pearl Abbey and Mrs. F. L Rogers. Ihe reading was interspersed with a duet, "In Meadows Green," by Miss Moore and Mr. Fuller, a duct, "Hark, Hark, My Soul," by Mrs. Perry and Mr. Inglis, and a song, "Soldier's Farewell", by the male quar tet. Miss Gladys French and Little Pearl Werner recited their own experi ences. The. ladies have had this "program" printed in pamphlet form and are sell ing the same at 25 cents each. The printing was attractively done by the Argus Print, Montpelier. Tbe ladies added to their funds by soliciting ad vertisements, and several pages of these appear in the book. About;50 copies were sold last evening. It is to be re gretted that several experiences were received after it was too late to insert them in the book. After the program was over, ice cream and cake were served to all and the time spent in social chit chat. As a finale to the evenings enjoyment Fred Coburn delighted ihe audience with about GO stercopticon views. 'These views were all taken by Mr. Coburn on his bicycle trips and the stercopticon slides were made by himself also. Mr. Coburn gave a short description of each picture, "and the exhibition of these views alone was a good entertainment. Among the scenes might be mentioned views of uear-bv points of interest, a se ries of views of'Ausablo Chasm, a se- rics on ML Mansfield, in Uentral Park, Xew York, "Old Abe" the war eagle, and many others. The ladies were unable to give the receipts of the entertainment, or the amount earned bv those who accepted the invitations, but these sums will be announced in a few days.

Open your watch and look at the lit- tlo wheels, springs and screws, each au indispeusablo part of the whole won derful machine. Notice the busy little balauco wheel as it flies to and fro un ceasingly, day and night, year iu and year out. This wonderful little machine is the result of hundreds of years of study and experiment. Tho watch carried by tho average man is composed of 08 pieces, and its manufacture embraces moro than 2,000 distinct and separato operations. Some of the smallest screws are so minute that the unaided eyes cannot distinguish them from steel filings or specks of dirt. Under a powerful magnifying glass a perfect screw is revealed. The slit in the head is 3-100 of an inch wide. It tnkes 1308,000 of these screws to weigh a pound and a pound is worth 1, 585. Tho hairspring is u strip of tho finest steel, about Di inches long, 1-100 inch wide, 27-10,000 inch thick. It is ooiled up in spiral form and finely tempered. Tho process of tempering those springs was long held as a secret by the few f or tunato ones possessing it, and cveu now is not generally known. Their manu facture requires great skill and euro. Tho strip is ganged to 20-100 of an inch, but no measuring instrument has as yet been devised capable of fine enough gauging to determine beforehand by tho size of tho strip what tho strength of tho finished spring will be. A 20-1,000 part of au iucli difference in the thick ness of tho strip makes a difference in tho running of a watch of about six minutes per hour. Tho valuo of these springs when fin ished and placed iu watches is enormous iu proportion to tho material from which they nro luado. A comparison will givo a good idea. A ton of steel made up into hairsprings when iu watches is worth more than 12,'j times tho value of tho sanio weight in puro gold. Hairspring wiro weighs 1-30 of a grain to the inch. Ono milo of wire weighs less than half a pound. The balance gives live vibrations evory second, !100 every minute, IS, 000 every hour, 41)2,000 every day mid 157,080, 000 every year. At each vibration it rotates about 14 times, which makes 11(7,100,000 revolutions every year. Take, for illustration, a locomotive with 0 foot driving wheels. Let its wheels bo run until they havo given tho sanio number of revolutions that a watch does iu ono year, and they will havo covered u distance equal to 2IS complete circuits of tho earth. All thU a watch does without other attention than winding tmeo every 24 hours. Jewelers' Keview. 1 Kendrick's.
