A WONDERFUL CLOCK.
[Shamokin Correspondence of the Philadelphia
Press.]
Karl Keller, a. poor) German
miner of the Excelsior Colliery,
which is situated within a few
miles of this borough' has ex
hibited a clock here, during
Ihe past week, of a most re
markable character. r lie had
been three years constructing
itthe first two year at inter
vats ol time, aud the last year
ne worked at it day and night,
a
scarcely taking lime enough to
sieep ana eat. i
IIo became almost, a mono
maniac on (he eul ject. The
clock was in his mind during
his waking hours, and in his
dreams at night. Heoccupied
alone a small uoodefii shanly,
wliero he worked, slept, and
cooked his food. Whatever
sleeping and cooking he did,
however, was but little. It is
thought he would have nearly
starved, but for the kindly in
terest which his heichboM
took ia him and . h rjvjjkr-
-i K
They took him Jbod and en
couraged him in his labors.
The clock, which was made
with no other tools than two
common jack-knives, it eight
leet high and four leet broad.
is Ira me is of the Gothic style
of architecture. It has sixteen
sides, aud is surmounted by a
globe, on the top of which Is
taitadud a small golden cross
Un the front of the cltck there
are lour dial plates; one shows
he day of the week, another
shows the day of the month,
ano bershowes the minu e and
raci ions of a minute, and the
other the hour of the day.
These dials are carved in a
most unique manner, having
emblematic iigures upon them
of almost every imaginable de
scription. Above thedial plates
is a semi-circular gallery, ex
tending arouDd about half the
widtb of the irame-work of the
clock. Immediately in front,
n the center of this semi-cir
cular gallery, is the carved
wood figure of our Savior. At
the ends oi the gallery, on
either side, there is a small
door, opening into the body ot
the clock.
Over the door, oo the right-
hand side ot the clock, at you
land lacing it, is an eagle.
Over the door, on the left-hand
bide, is a chicken cock. Twice
a day, that is, at 12.05 in the
day and 1205 at night, a sweet
chime of bells begins to play,
the small door on the right
hand opens, and small wooden
figures, admirably carved, of
the twelve Apostles, appear
and walk out slowly and grave
ly in procession, Peter in tho
lead. Advancing along the
gallery until tbey get opposite
the - figure of Jesus, each in
turo, except Judas, slowly
turns around and bows . his
head to the Master, then recov
ers his lormer position; as kV
ler does this tho cock crows.
They continue to advance to
the other side of the gallery
and enter the small door on
the left. As Judas (who is in
the rear) with his right hand

'hand clasping the bag which
is supposed to contain the
I
thirty pieces of silver, comes
in full view of the cock, the
cock crows again. By a simple
arrangement this procession
can be made to come out and
pass around the gallery at any
time desired.
On pedestals, bt the extreme
cornrs of the front of the
clock, are carved wooden slat
ties ot Moses and Elias. In the
rear are two obelisks of the
Egyptian style, upon which
are carved hieroglyphic char
acters to represent the ancient
period of the world's history.
The clock will run thirty-two
hours without winding. Mr.
Kelter, who is a native of Frie
burg, in Baden, is very proud
of his workmanship. Be can
scarcely bear to be away from
it long enough to eat bis meals,
lie has been oflered ten thous
and dollars for it by a party
Irom New York, but he refus
ed it.
Mr. Ketter says he had often
heard of the celebrated clock
in Strssburg, Germany, but he
never saw it, and he has had
no knowledge how it was con
8tructed, neither has he ever
had any instruction in mechan
ics of any kind.
Bis purpose is to exhibit it
for a few months in this coun
try, and then take it with him
to Germany.
Completion of the Portage
Lake Ship Canal.
The importance ot the Fort
age Lake Ship Canal will be
highly estimated when it is un
derstood to be worthy of men
lion in connection with those
valuable results of human in
dustry which remove impedi
ments to the transit of the pro
duct uf agriculture and other
commodities between the var
ious ports of the great inland
seas. oiearaers or vessels
bound up or down Lake Supe
rior, calling for cargoes from
Portage Lake, have heretofore
been compelled to go forty or
fifty miles and return out of the
straight course around Kewee
naw Point.
Most of the copper produced
on the Southern shore of Lake
Superior has always been and
will continue to be sent from
Portage Lake. More than
12,000 of the 15,000 tons ol
copper produced last year were
shipped from it. By the canal
passage, round Keeweenaw
Point will be saved. The pas
sage round this Point has al
ways been regarded with dis-
ike by sailors, and in foggy or
heavy weather is dangerous,
the harbors being available
only for the smaller class of
boats. The actual distance by
measure from Portage Lake
around the Point is one hun
dred and twelve miles, and the
distance to be sailed over is
still greater. But from Bough
ton to Hancock through the
6inp canal to the open lake is
only nine miles.
There is no doubt that at
some former period the penin
sula or 4,point" north of Port
age Lake was an island, as now
by the labor of man it bas
again become. The channel
between the island and the
main land had, for a long dis
tance been filled up with sand
to the height of at least twenty
feet above the lake. In the
course ot the recent excava
tions, large trees buried for
many centuries, have been
brouLht to the surface, and,
stranger yet, tools an imple
ments curiously fashioned from
copper, and eviden'ly wrought
by a now unknown race, have
also been discovered.
The whole work is now near
y completed, and there seems
to be no donbt that the in
crease of the tonnage brought
to Portage Lake from the West
will be followed by the widen
ing, deepening and straighten
lng of the channel eastward to

Freaks of Lightning.
At the last sitting of the
French Academy of Sciences
a letter was read from M. A
Parent, giving an account of
the effects of a violent stroke ol
lightning which fell on the
26th ult. at Troyes, (Anbe.) in
a central quarter of the town,
with a noise equal to the re
port of several pieces of artil
lery. The phenomenon seems
to have been confined fo the
Rue de la Monnaie, where, at
No. 37, a young girl who was
standing on the threshold of her
dwelling, saw a fiery globe o!
the size of an orange, fall at
her feet, then roll along and
disappear. She experienced a
violent shock, causing a trem-
Mingr that did not cpase until
he following day. Th pins in
her hair were torn awav as
well as all the metal arUolee
she had about her person. Tier
father who was leanine against
f he Iron bars of a window of the
next honse. was pnrnlvzed for
a few seconds, and did not re
cover from fhe commotion for
several davs. At No. 24, same
street, in the "E'eefion ttoi;e
as if ia called, the electric fluid
Ml on a turret behind the
honse. pierced a hole thronth

pipes laid down to the next
tory; thence passed to the
next house, broke into a ware
house where there were some
jon stoves with the usual cast
ton ornamernfr,' sucIP-'as
wreaths, flowers, etc.. all of
which it faithfully designed on
the ceiling, with the precision
of photography; then melted
the wire of a hell, the trace of
which it left on the wall, and at
ength took a iancy to some
gilt wooden rods intended for
sale and wrapped up in paper.
These it enriched With fantastic
but elegant designs, and after
a few more vagaries took its
eave.
Here is a paragraph from
the Athens speech of Governor
Noyea, which every citizen of
Ohio 6houId "read, mark, learn,
and inwardly digest:"
No man who wishes Well for
ihe State can notice without
concern the rapid and enor
mous increase in the local in
debtedness ot our smaller po
litical divisions. Incompetent,
irresponsible, and reckless of
ficials often squander the pub
lic money; and sometimes the
better judgement ol communi
ties is improperly swayed by
specious arguments and false
representations, for purposes
bt private gtin. While the
Stale debt is decreasing, our
cities and counties are prepar
ing a burden which will be
found heavy and oppressive in
the coming years. All good
cilisens 6hould set their laces
against this mortgage of the
future, and this evil should be
borne in mind while the peo
ple are selecting members ol
the Legislature and their coun
ty, officers.
Economizing.
It is an interesting fact that
the imports of dry goods at New
York during the month of Aug
ust have been a million and a
half leas in value than in 1872,
and four millions and a quarter
less thau in 1871. Our total
imports since the beginning of
the year are nineteen millions
less than last year, and eleven
millions less than the year belore
last. We are not running in
debt abroad as fast as we were.
