HOW TIME IS MADE.
Uncle Sam Regulates His Clocks by
One of the Fixed Stars.
Strange as it may seem, Uncle Sam
does not make use of the sun for reck
oning time, but he turns his attention
to some of the regular steady going
stars, or "fixed stars," as they are
called. Every clear night an astrono
mer with a big telescope looks at cer
tain of these stars and makes his cal
culations, from which he can tell just
when the sun would cross the seventy
fifth meridian. One of the great clocks
in the observatory is called the trans
mitter, because It transmits or sends
out the signal that keeps standard
time. This clock is set and regulated
by the star time, and then every day
at three minutes and fifteen seconds
before 12 a switch is turhed on, and the
beats of the pendulum of this clock are
sent by electricity over the wires to the
telegraph offices in Washington and
New York. When the telegraph oper
ators hear this sound on their instru
ments, they know that the noon signal
is about to be sent out, and they at
once begin to connect the telegraph
wires with other towns and cities until
in a minute or two the "tick, t-ck" of
the clock at Washington is heard In
hundreds of telegraph offices. The
beats stop at ten seconds before 12, as
a notice that the next "tick" will be
the noon signal and so as to give the
operators time to connect taeir wires
with the standard time balls and clocks.
There are time balls in a great many
cities-usually op top of some promi
nent building, where they ca-n easily be
seen. The one at Washington is on the
roof of the state, war and navy depart
ment building, at the top of a high pole,
ready to drop the instant the signal
comes over the wire. In the govern
ment offices at Washington and in
many places in other cities there are
large clocks connected with the ob
servatory by electricity. These are so
arranged that when the 12 o'clock sig
nal is flashed over the wires the hands
of each one of these clocks spring to
12, no matter what time the clock may
show. In this way hundreds of clocks
are set to the correct time each day.
Well, the moment the sun is supposed
to cross the seventy-fifth meridian the
telegraph instruments give a single
tick, the time balls drop, the clocks be
gin to strike and everybody in the Dis
trict knows It is 12 o'clock.-St. Nicho
MADE TO STAND PULLING.
The Great Tensile Strength of the
Government's Paper money.
"The way some cashiers pay out
small bills in exchange for large ones
must make other men as tired as it
wearies me," remarked an observing
business man to another Washing
tonian as they watched the cashier of
a fashionable uptown cafe pull at and
strip the ones and twos in exchange for
a ten as though he were pulling a piece
of molasses candy over a hook and
hated to let go.
"It does," acquiesced his friend, who
happened to be a United States treas
ury expert. "The way some cashiers
jerk, snap and pull at bills as they pay
them out is' utterly aberd. The old
adage about pinching a silver dollar
until the eagle screams pales before
the way the up to date flip cashier
lerks the long green he handles.
"In this connection I will give you a
fact that is not generally kneewn, and
that is the weight a new treasury sin
gle note, and four notes in a sheet, will
sustain without breaking. The figures
may be accepted as official and ac
"A single treasury note measures 3%
inches wide by 7%A inches long and
will suspend 41 pounds lengthwise and
91 pounds crosswise. Notes are printed
four to a sheet. A sheet will suspend
108 pounds lengthwise and 177 pounds
"The remarkable strength of a Unit
ed States treasury note may thus be
seen at a glance, and I venture to say
that not one person in a million would
slave guessed the great tenacity of the
paper which, when properly printed
and stamped, becomes good money."
The cashier had Interestedly listened
to the treasury expert's explanation of
the weight sustaining and necessarily
resisting power of wear and tear of
our paper money, and then he said:
"You see, It is this way: Bills slick
together, see, and we cashiers have to
make up any shortage out of our own
pockets, and that's one reason why we
snap and jerk the bills so hard, so we
will not pay out two for one, as might
be done. Again, a two dollar bill is fre
quently mistaken for 'a five, and vice
versa, and by counting out our money

Why They Are Poor Places to Get
Loans on Stolen Watches.
Of watches alone there are received
here and at the twenty-two branch of
fices from a thousand to twelve hun
dred a day, about 350,000 In a year, the
average loan on a watch being 30 or
40 francs. The official assured me that
in this great number of watches scarce
ly one in a thousand has been stolen,
the fact being that people who have
come dishonestly by watches or other
property fight shy of the mont de piete.
The reason of this was presently made
plain as we watched the formalities of C
record, and I realized how difficult it
would be for any one to do business
hpre under a concealed identity. Every
client receiving a loan greater than 15
francs must produce some official docu
ment-an Insurance policy, a citizen's
voting card, a permit to carry arms or
a rent receipt bearing his signature and
throwing light upon his station in life.
For loans under 15 francs the client is
simply required to show an envelope
through the mails to his address. All
these facts, with various others, are
duly inscribed upon huge record sheets,
so that whoever deals with the mont
de plete exposes himself to the scru
tiny that must be ungrateful to folks
of shady antecedents. Indeed, certain
persons make this a grievance against
the mont de piete and declare the Paris
system an Impertinent intrusion upon a
client's privacy, which would seem a
point badly taken If (he client is an
honest man. - Cleveland Moffett on

hat these microscopic parasites cause

nany cases the micro organism, If
