church at Bay Center from its founda

and Giesz crossing. The storm of the

eighty feet of the Tokeland wharf. The
smokestacks of the Siler mill at South

been commenced also. The complaint
stated that the capital stock of the cor

value of 103 each, an! that December
10th 1000 shares had been unpaid. It in
also stated that the defendant, D. C.
O'Reilly, owns 4.M shares, which ho bas
held and voted, and that on December
10th, at a regular meeting of the board
of directors of the Columbia Southern,
an assessment of 25 per cent was levied

Bathrooms In dwelling-bouses are a
comparatively modern convenience,
but public bathing places are aa old
aa civilization. The Ureeka and Ro
mans spent large sums in fitting up
public batha, which were popular re
sorts for all classes, but a private bath
room in one a own house would have
been hard to find. Even to this day
the people of India consider bathing
in anything other than a river or small
er stream of running water to be n
disgraceful act. Pent water was con

ancients and tbe public bath of (ireece

to godliness came a sort of rivalry in
bathroom furnishings and sanitary en
gineering skill and Inventive genius

few years ago a little room In an ob

A WONDERFUL WATCH.
Oae ta Marylaad Kaona as a llallla,

What is perhaps the most wonderful
watch in the world ia In the poaaea-
aion of a resident of Prince Gregory
county, Maryland, saye the Washington
This remarkable timepiece, known a
the -Ma tile watch, from the name of lta
maker, was made at Looe, Switzerland,
about 40 years ago. It formed a feature
of the Swiss exhibit at the centennial
held at Philadelphia in 1870, and waa
purchased on that occasion by it
present owner. A description of the
watch by Mark Twain (S. L.Clemens)
is as remarkable for accuracy aa it ia
humorous. The well-known writer
thus gives his impressions of the mar
velous piece of mechanism:
'I have examined the wonderful
watch made by. If. L. Matile, and, in-
deed, It comes nearer to being a human
being than any piece of mechanism I
ever .aw before. In fact, it knowa
considerably more than the average
voter. It knows the movements of
the moon, and keeps exact record of
them; it tell, the day of the week, the
date of the month, and the month of
the year, and will do this perpetually;
It tell, the hour of the day, and the
minute, and the second, and even split
the second into fifths, and mark, the
division by stop hands, having two of
the latter; it can take accurate care
of two race horse, that atart, not to
gether, but one after another; it la
a repeater (wherein the voter la sug
ge.ted again), and musically chimea
he hour, tbe quarter, the half and the
three-quarter hour, and also the min
ute, that have passed of an uncom
pleted quarter-hour, so that a blind
man can tell tbe time of day by it to
the exact minute.
Such Is this extraordinary watch.
It ciphers to admiration. I ahould
think one could add another wheel and
make it read and write, atlll another
and make it talk; and I think one might
ake out several of the wheels thst
are already In it and it would still be a
more Intelligent citizen than some that
help to govern the countrv. On the
whole, I think ft is entitled to vote-
that is, if its sex is of the right kind."
The watch was sold for $1,400, and
It ia still performing its complex
functions with the greatest regularity.
