One step, and then another.
And thojongest walk is ended ;
Onestich, and then another,
And the largest rent is mended.
Ojie brick upon another,
And the highest wall is made;
One flake upon another.
And the deepest snow is laid.
So the little coral workers,
By their slow but constant motion,
XJave built those pretty islands
In the distant, dark blue ocean.
And the noblest undertakings
Man's wisdom hath conceived
By oft repeated efforts
'Have been patiently achieved.
A Word to Working Men.
The Dramatic Chronicle, which is as
" independent as a hog on ice," gives
the workingmen ot) San Francisco
6ome sound advice. We quote from
We have encountered quite a num
ber of "representative" workingmen
that is, of workingmen gifted v ith
great loudness and fluency of speech,
and who are much more fond of talk
ing, blowing, and playing the dem
agogue generally, than of taking off
their coats and doing a square day's
work, and who are inveterately giv
en to speaking of" capital'' as if it
were some monstrous nd cviNmind
ed oigre that lived on cthe life-blood
ofolabor, and of capitalists as the
sworn foes and natural oppressors of
the working classes. Ave have met
such specimens, and we have uni
formly found them ignorant, con
ceited, and intensely disagreeable.
Thev are naturally of an uneasy,
rpstless, discontented turn
who find delight in stirrii
feeling in their felloes, misleading
their judgment, and in mischief
making generally. Tho influence of
these men is not good, and we warn
tho more industrious and orderly of
their clasQsgaiust them. They are
almost invariably petty politicians,
manipulators and wire-pullers in a
small way, anxious to play the dem
agogue, and are in most cases cither
aspirants for office themselves, or the
instrument and agents of those who
are looking for ofiice. Unfortunately
San Francisco is full of such. Now
the fact is there is no logical or nec
essary antagonism between labor and
capital. Their interests are identical.
Each needs the other, and neither
can suffer without corresponding in
jury to the other. Our exhortation
10 workingmen is, waste no time in
grumbling, give no heed to the elo
quence of mischief-making dema
gogues. Attend to your work, be
industrious, be economical, indulge in
no bad habits, save something every
week, and at least make a beginning
in the way of becoming " capitalists"
Candleixg Eggs. This operation
of looking through an egg by means
of a candle placed behind it is called
candleing an egg, by poulterers, who
have taken advantage of its trans
parency in order to ascertain its
soundness. From a mere trade
practice it has risen to the dignity ol
a scientific manipulation, and more
pertect apparatus has been made for
detecting the changes going on with
in the egg at different periods of in
cubation, also for assisting in re
searches on the formation of mon
strosities by coating portions of the
shell. Carbonnier's apparatus cons
sistcd of a hollow cylinder, in the
center of which was a powerful liht.

This screen, which is of wood, has a
longitudinal slit in a vertical direc

only to fall on the egg placed in front

New Uses of Mica. Mica coated
with a silver film is now used in this
country for large reflectors. Fuscher
f Nuremberg has suggested that em
ployment of silvered mica for cover
ing curved surfaces, the flexibility of
mica giving it great advantages over
glass. After being heated, mica
loses most of its flexibility, but it
thenqnakes a beautiful material for
inlaying work. A pretty effect is
obtained by scattering small frag
ments of mica on freshly poured
sheets of gelatine. Finely ground
inifii mixed with a solution of cum
arable may be used for a silver ink.
To Keep Hams Through Summer.
After your hams have taken salt

The Power Behind the Throne.
It will interest many readers, says
the Club reporter, to learn that of
the vast number of letters received,
fully onefourth are unmistakably
from the hands of ladies. It seems
evident that when the old man takes
a notion to write to the Club, he calls
his wife, his daughter, or perhaps his
daughter in law, to sit down, and he
will tell her what to say. Willingly
enough she takes her pen, and tells
bow to saw wheat, feed stock, or to
do any other farm work ; and when
she gets through he will often sim
his name. Some of these are most
beautifully written; there is not a
word mis spelled a or comma missing,
and they are folded and directed with
all the neatness and care with which
other letters were dispatched to one
most dear. It must be an event of
no common importance when one of
these letters is finished ; and when it
comes back, printed in clear type,im
agine how often it is read, and how
carefully it is preserved. May those
quiet rural homes long be the abodes
of happiness and peace.

twenty-three she really appeared but eigh

A Card From Tlie
American Watch Company
Of Waltham, Mass.
rpills COMPASY BEG LEA E lO 1-
JL form the public that they com
menced operations in 1S50. and their factory
now covers four acres of ground, and has
cost more than a million dollars, and em
ploys over 700 operatives. Tl ey produce
75,000 Watches a year, and make and seil
not less than one half of all the watches sold
in the United States.
The difference between their manufacture
and the European, is briefly this : European
Vi"atches are made almost entirely !; hand,
and the result is of necessity a lack of that
uniformity, which is indispensable to correct
time-keeping. Both the eye and the hand
of the most skillful operative must vary.
But it is a fact that, except watches of the
higher grades, European watches are the
product of the cheapest labor of Switzer
land, and the result is the worthless Ancres,
Lepines and so called Pat-.nt Levers which
soon cost more in attempted repairs, than
their original price. Common workmen,
bovs and women, buy the rough separate
parts of these watches from various facto
ries, polish and put tliem together, and take
them to the nearest watch merchant, who
stamps and engraves them with any name
or brand that may be ordered.
How American Watches are Made.
The American Waltham Watch is made
by no such uncertain process and by no
such incompetent workmen. All the Com
pany's operations, from the reception of the
raw materials to the completion of the
Watch, are carried on under one roof, and
under oue skillful and competent direction.
But the great distinguishing feature of their
Watches, is the faetlhat their several parts
are all made by the finest, tlie most perfect
and delicate machinery ever brought to the
aid of human industry. Every one of the
more than a hundred parts of every watch is
made bv a machine that infallibly repro
duces every succeeding part with the most
unvarying' accuracy. It was only neeessary
to make one perfect watch of any particular
stvle and then to adjust the hundred man-
chines necessary to reproduce every part of
that watch, ana it follows that every suc
ceeding watch must belike it.
Ihe Company respectfully submit their

A Better Article for the Money
by their improved mechanical processes
than can be made under the old-fashioned
handicraft system. They manufacture every
grade of watches, from a good, low priced
and substantial article in solid silver huntng
cases, to the hnest chronometer and also !
ladies' watches in plain gold or the finest en
ameled and jeweled cases ; but the indispen
sable requisite of all their watches is that
they shall be good time keepers. It should
be remembered that.except their single low

Boston," all watches made by them are fully
warranted by a special certificate, and this
warrantee is good at all times against the
