The Most Wonderful of All Clocks
Worked On It for Nineteen Years.
Berlin, Feb. 6.Herr Spath, a clock
ma.ker in the village of Steimmauern,
invited your correspondent to view his
great clock, just finished after nine
teen years' work. The clock consists
of 2,200 parts and has 142 wheels and
8 springs, which must be wound up
e\erv ten days.
On the face of the clockhouse is
painted the picture of the Savior, and
at 12 o'clock noon the figures of the
1 twelve Apostles march out to do rev
'erence to their master. The clock
shows seconds, minutes, hours, days
weeks and months.
xvikewise, it announces the Christian
holidays, even those, like Easter, the
date of which varies. Astronomical
e\ents, like sun and moon eclipses, are
likewise announced, up to the year
.2002. The clockmaker says his
clock will go without losing a minute
until the year 2808 then some one
needs but to turn a crank, after certain
instructions, to make the clock go un
The clock has five dials, two of
which are devoted to astronomy. The
jhand of the upper one turns only one

lower one needs twenty-eight years to

No Transfer of the Right of
According to German law, masters
have the right to inflict corporal pun
ishment upon apprentices, but the su
pipme court has just decided that the
right is not "transferable." A hotel
keeper, it seems, attempted to do so
in an effort to collect from his waiter
apprentices the tips given, them by
guests. As the hotelkeeper is lame
and unable to punish apprentices, he
employed his head waiter to perform
that duty. The supreme court de
ided that the transfer was illegal and
that the head waiter is liable to pun
ishment for every act of violence com
mitted under the arrangement with his

A Great Fight Between
Rival Monsters of the Deep.
Christiania, Feb. 6.The captain of
a government vessel cruising between
Iceland and Greenland reports a fight
between an immense whale and an oc

"Investigation showed that the head

was ripped open, the wound measur

"Evidently the whale who went un

Insane Beggar Woman Papered
Room With Government Bonds.
Paris, Feb. 6.Anita, the insane
beggar girl, who for years earned a
living by singing psalms and hymns in
the public cemeteries, and asking alms
for this service, was arrested for at
tacking a party who had refused to
give her money, and the police matron
discovered her address sewed in the
bottom of her skirt. The investiga
tion following divulged the fact that
the girl's squalid room was literally
papered with government bonds.
Bonds valued at 60,000 francs have
already been detached from the walls
there are 10,000 francs worth more
that can only be removed together
with the plaster.
Two-thirds of the window panes in
the room were broken and pasted over
with bonds valued from 100 francs
and 1,000 francs.
Anita was a popular variety woman
before she became an insane street
singer. It is supposed that she ac
quired the bonds while at the height
of her success and going insane lost
all idea of their value.
