FOR THE CHILDREN
A Great Clock.
Perhaps the boys and girls know
that correct time for all Europe Is fur
nished by the observatory at Green
wich. England, says the Chicago News,
which Is also the place from which
longitude Is reckoned. It U natural,
therefore, that the observatory clock
should be tended with the utmost care
and that It should never be allowed to
get either too fast or too slow. But no
piece of mechanism Is perfect, and this
great clock If allowed to run on un
tended would soon wander far enough I
away from sun time to cause a good j
deal of confusion and trouble. As It Is. I
they never permit It to get more than
one-tenth of a second too fast or too I
slow, a fraction of time that Is almost
Inappreciable. Of course so small an i

"Dent nse that booth. That phone's ,

"A lady has been talking over that
wire for the last ten minutes. Take
the one next to it; that one. has had a
rest. You'll get a much better connec

The man took the girl's advice and
got unusually satisfactory service.
When be was through and was paying

magnet is near the pendulum, which It

this way a few thousand swings of the

A Boo si la Shipbuilding.
Reports from the big shipyards of
Scotland state that the marked decline
in shipbuilding noted for a year past
has abated and that orders for new
ships have come to hand In such num
bers as to portend a speedy revival of
the Industry. A similar awakening
has been felt In Germany and France,
and the depression of the early months
of the year has given way to cheer.
A ship shortage would be a great
drawback to international trade. Rec
ord crops make more bulk to haul re
gardless of the market selling price,
and If any great country suffers from
poor crops the tonnage of the sea is
Increased. It is In the nature of things j
that the ocean carrying trade must I
grow so long as the world is at peace,
and it is a sign of confidence that ship
owners are now willing to branch out

Consumption and tho Telephone.
The panic recently created on the
subject of the assumed danger lurking
In the transmitter of the telephone Is
not precisely new. It Is but the devel
opment of a fear which has caused
misgiving for some years. On the sup
position that various germs of disease
probably collect In the receiver and
transmitter of the Instrument, at any
rate In public telephone stations, some
medical alarmists have thrown out
suggestions that antiseptics, both In a
'dry state and In solution, should be
applied for the safety of the telephone
user. The recent dictum goes one step
further. Inasmuch ns It Is now an es-

"Why do you sit so near the fire?" C
answers, "Because I like the heat"
A asks B, "Why did you fall In the
water?" and he replies, "Because I
went too near the edge." When It Is
B's turn he must tell A's question and
C's answer, thus: "Why did you fall
In the water?" "Because I like the
beat." and so on. The game Is often
played, by giving the right hand neigh
bor a predicament and the left hand a
solution and then telling the predica
ment that comes from the left and the
solution from the right. The game Is
then called "predicaments."
