aches. William was learning to skate to-night. He, however did not fare very well. for in one of the 'upsets' which every beginner is likely to get, he broke one of his skates and his watch dropped out, he not noticing it at the time. But he soon discvoered his loss and went to look for it but could not find it

It is a valuable gold watch, so if he does not find it he'll feel 'cheap' over his first skate.
