American Watches for
THE AMERICAN WATCH COMPANY give
notice that they have lately issued a new style of Watch, expressly designed for
Soldiers and others who desire a good watch at a moderate price. These watches
are intended to displace the worthless, cheap watches of British, and Swiss
manufacture with which the country is flooded, and which were never expected to
keep time when they were made, being refuse manufactures sent to this country
because unsalable at home, and used here only for jockeying and swindling
purposes. We offer to sell our Watch, which is of THE MOST SUBSTANTIAL
MANUFACTURE, AN ACCURATE AND DURABLE TIME-KEEPER, and in Sterling Silver Cases,
Hunting pattern, at as low a price as is asked for the fancy-named Ancres and
Lepines of foreign make, already referred to. We have named the new series of
Watches, WM. ELLERY, Boston, Mass., which name will be found on the plate of
every watch of this manufacture, and is one of our trade-marks. Sold by all
respectable watch dealers in the loyal States. Wholesale orders should be
addressed to ROBBINS & APPLETON, Agents of the American Watch Company, 182
BROADWAY, N. Y.
Recent and valuable improvements
have been made in the construction of this chimney, and it is now offered to the
public as a PERFECT ARTICLE. It is warranted not to crack or break in any manner
from "overheating" or changes of temperature, and to last with ordinary care
just as long as the lamp on which it is used. It gives us satisfaction to
announce that we have completed such arrangements as will enable us, we trust,
from the present date to supply the demand for this NEW CHIMNEY, which thus far
it has been impossible for us to do.
