Depends groutly on the care
which the owner bestows upon it. A
good watch, if CAItEL'L'LLY CLEANED
and OILED once a year, as it should be,
will last a lifetime; yes, a hundred
years. Many good watches are al
lowed to go without cleaning and oil
ing for years, with the result that the
oil is entirely dried up, the pivots are
cut and rusted out, eo that it costs
twice as much to put the watch in
proper condition again as it would if
given timely attention. 1 have a long
established reputation for serving my
customers carefully, as well as doing
the best of work, if your watch is
not giving satisfaction, bring it to me
and I will tell you just what it needs.
No charge for examination, and if left
with me, I guarantee that you shall
have an accurate and reliable TIME

erous attack on OU:- troops at Manila
resulted in u -b a complete overthrow
that ho will tind it dtflicult to lal y
his forces for any forraidab e effo t in
the future. And now it is our turn to
take the initiative. Generil Miller
hns been re inforced bofoie Iloilo, and
General Otis notifies the government
at Washington that an ultimatum
had been sent demanding the sur
render of that place by Friday (yes
terday) at 9 o'clock. In all probabil
ity that important position is already
in the hands of our troops. Rapid,
aggressive work, that will stun and
da?e the insurgents and permit no
time for recovery, is the most merci
ful policy and will prove the least de
structive of human life in the end.
OUR RANK UPON THE SEA.
The United States now occupies a
position o; fifth rank in the potential
ity of it9 shipping engaging in the for
eign carrying trade. Great Britain,
Germany, France and Norway taking
precedence in the order named. The
bill now in congress to give new life to
the building of ships in the United
States, to be owned and manned by
our own citizens, and to engage in
competition with the foreign ships
that now monopolize our foreign car
rying trade, will, in a few years so it
is believed by those best informed
give to this country at least second
rank upon the sea, in tho volura9 and
potentiality of its shipping.
Any Jay the bill introduced in tbe
house of rc presentatives by Mr. Payne,
of New York, and which has been re
ported favorably by the proper com
mittee, may be passed in that branch
of congress, and trim thenco go to the
senate, whore an identical bill. Intro
duced in that branch of congress by
Senator Hannn, has also beon favor
ably reported, and through which
body its early passage is predicted.
At the end of the decade, if the sn
called Hanna-I'ay no shipping bill
parses congress and receives the ap
proval of tbo president, wo shall
probably see the United States in a
battle rojal with Great lirilaiti for
fcupremacy upon the sea. Already
thi country possesses the materials
used in enipbuildinr in greater abun
dance than any other nut on. '1 his
material can bo placed in our ship

through the encouragement oi oo

half-savage revolution i.-ts

a new story to relate or ribl-, lnvn ;

Our army anil navy at Manila have

enemy. Before the capture of Manila
tbe Spanish carricon made a desperate

men in the trenches, a thin iine, but

Ilenjamln Franklin, says a writer
in tho Century, yet a few have had less
education, in the common sense of the
word. For moro than two years (at
tho age of eight to ten) ho went to a
grammar school and a private school
in IJoston; for the other four-tcore
years and more of his life he learned
without a teacher. His father's li
brary was small, but the lad himself
spent the little money that came into
his hands on cerious booksahd pimph
lets. Having proved deficient in
arithmetic in his early youlh ho aftor
w n dr. made a special study tf mathe
matics, and for some time amusrd him
s lf b. c instructing all sorts of mag
ical squares and ci cles, with rows of
lig'.res that would add upali .e.w ici,

connection Mr. Fo d a cell . ducatee

claimed that of learned fools I have

men I have s-en a hundred.' Yet
Franklin was f ir from showing the
usual contempt ef lh self taught man
for i.n acedomic education. On his
settling in Philade'phia ho found two
things which ho regretted, and one of
these was 'there being no provision
for the complete education of youth,
I therefore in 1743 drew up a proposal
for establishing an academy.' "
Tho academy was duly founded, but
in time it becami a hot-bed of politic,
and its rector an active opponent of

work itself shall ntit bo lost, for it will

beautiful edition, corrected and
amended by the Author."'
Franklin, when near the close tif his
life, in tho constitutional convention
of 17iS7,mado a speech in fave of daily

with Britain, when we were sensible
ef danger, we had daily pi ayers in

Our pr.iyeis, sir, wore heard, and they

owe this happy opportunity of consult

have we now forgotten this powerful
friend? or do we imagine we no longer
need His assistance? I have lived, sir,
a long time, (eighty-one years) and
the longer I live the mora convincing

proposed to honor Admiral Dewey in
Vermont by erecting a "Dewey Hall,'
to be used for drilling purposes in the
state's military institution, Norwich

raise money by popular subscription
for the same purpose. This will be
open to contributions out of the state
as well as in it, and those interested

a fitting opportunity to do so by aiding
