A MONTH UNDER WATER. When passing through High-street, Merthyr, the other day, an interested crowd outside the establishment of Mr. H. Samuel. the well- known watch manufacturer and jeweller, at- tracted our attention. Curiosity prompted us to investigate and we found shown in the win- dow a letter from the brother of a man who was drowned last year, off Vancover Island, the body not being recovered until A month after- wards. The writer mentioned the fact that the brother bad in his possession one of Mr. H. Samuel's "Acme" lever watches, and made the most incredible statement that the month's submersion made -no difference whatever and that the watch still kept time to the second. Readers will at once conclude that a watch that could remain under water a whole month without sustaining da-mage must necessarily have been a very expensive one. The cost of the watch that had such an adventurous time is, however, the most surprising thing of all, j and readers onn obtain from Mr. H. Sarauel, a watch exact' ";n:;1ar in every respectfo; the absurdly sr.y.I' cof 25s. This pariicu'v.- j watch ha.' more i.ian 250'00 ic-f.'J- monials from ••al-isfiou 'ou Ho: 'ors.
