The upright part of tho houso, witli the
wing at tho left of tho entrance, is a
rather recont addition. Tho old Dutch

when a street door was so constrncted
that Meln Ilorr could open one half and

F. T. Kmft. a Gorman resident of
Brooklyn, while walking down Broad
way, Now York, one day some six years
ago, saw in the window of a Jeweler's
store a clock of peculiar ronstroetifln.
The owner, who refused to reveal the
prinoiplo of its mouhanisra, told him
that the timepiece was minute, aim nan
been made In England twoiity-flvo years
ago. Mr. Kraft went home resolvod on
working out tho problem for himself.
The result of his determination Is a
timepiece supisirted by four polished
columns. Benonth It stands a small
brass platform balanced on two pivots,
A gi-sve cut Into, tho surface of the
hrnss runs ligzog from one end to tho
other. In this runs incessantly a steel
bull tho sizo of a rillo bullet.
When the ball has gone from one end
of the platform to the other it strikes a
steel Svtre. The platform tilts up, the
bull mils buck, and the process is rotat
ed at the oiinosito extremity. Mr. Kraft
explained the principle of his clock tho
other day as follows "The two wires
which tho ball strikes against nt the end
of each trip am fastened alsivo to a long
rod. From tho upper side of thisrisl
runs a strip of steel, which rests against
ono of four pins on an escapement wheel
in tho works. Wheu the hall strikes the
wire it releases this wheel, which makes
a quarter revolution t tlie next pin. hi

a half revolution wuiie me inner mim
ing, a quarter. To tho axis of this wheel
Is fastened it Md, which Is attached at
Its other end to the platform, which is
pulled up or down according M the wire
which the bill strikes. It tnki-s the ball
just five ni-iids to make the trip, a half
second for each wctioii of the groove.
The platform acts ns a pendulum, with a
five second swing."

Every one knows the inclining of tho
term "pin money," but the origin of the
phrase has Isi-n involved In some ob
scurity. The Dry (bssls Chronicle says
that long after the Invention of pins, In
the FoiirtiN-uth century, tlm maker was
allowed to sell theuiln on-ii shop only on
tho 1st und 2d of Janunry. It was then
that the court Indies and city dames
ftis'ked to the di (Hits to buy them, hav
ing lieen first provided with money by
their husbands. When tho pins Warns
cheap nnd rommon the Indies spent
their allowances on other fiincies, but
the term pin money remained in vogue.
