A Phonograph Clock.
A German trade journal says, under
the headline, "The Phonograph Clock,"
that Switzerland has gained, a point
over America in the clock industry by
placing on the market a timepiece
which bears that name. It Is valuable
as a novelty and "a' source of comfort
to the blind and the lazy." The clock
may be placed in any room in connec
tion with a phonograph and a person
in any adjoining room, having no clock
and where connection has been made
with the timepiece by electric wires,
need merely to press a button to hear
the time called aloud by the instru
ment. The same principle has been
employed in the German reichstag,
where by touching a button the mem
bers in distant parts of the building
are told by phonograph the name of
the next speaker.

BOTOQOD WAS FOUND GUILTY
Sentenced to Year in Jail, the Condition of His Health
Keeping Kim from State Prison Court Adjourred
Until May 24.
The jury; in the criminal superior
court, which held a Saturday session
lasting all day until after 5 o'clock,
brought in a verdict of guilty in the
case Jrgainst William E. Rockwood,
charged with the theft of $145. Judge
Wheeler sentenced him to one year in
jail, although he. said he could have
given him five years in state prison,
but was lenient because of the condi
tion of his health.
The first witness Saturday mominsr
was William F. Hill, who testified to
knowing Rockwood, -who, he said, sold
insurance and real estate. He stated
that he 'loaned money to Rockwood and
received a money order for $42.54 cent
by Rockwood from Worcester, al
though the letter -was dated Putnam.
It paid for $35 loaned Rockwood and
an insurance commission. '
In regard to the bank account of Mr.
Pulasky and the deposit slips. Cashier
C. Leslie Hopkins of the First Na
tional bank testified. This completed
the state's testimony.
Testimony for Defendant.
The first witness called .for the de
fendant was Charles E. Lane, who tes
tified to meeting Rockwood on the
street and going with him by trolley to
Danielson. They went to East Kil
lingly, where they saw Mr. Lane's
farm, which Rockwood thought he
might sell. Mr. Rockwood went to
Worcester on this day.
Dr. Nathan G. Gray testified to pay
ing Rockwood; $10 for pictures he
bought of him, while Arthur Durr tes
tified he met Rockwood near Pulasky s
store April 12 and talked about some
pictures. They had some beer. F. E.
Watson testified for Rockwood, who
had' talked about insurance with him.
The wife of the accused, Mary Rock
wood, told of working in the Shetucket
mill and giving her husband all sne
earns. They have two small cnnoren.
Jennie Humes, her daughter by a pre
vious marriage, told of working and
giving her earnings to Rockwood.
Town Clerk C. S. Holbrook testified
that he received papers to be recorded
which Attorney Thresher drew up, and
Hvmen Fickelstein, an employe oi
Pulasky's, testified to what he knew
about the case. Deputy Judge Barnes
nresided over the city court when the
case was heard there, and he told' that
Rockwood was given a chance to Ac
plain how he came by the money.
The Accused Testifies.
The accused testified that he was in

The balloon Springfield w-as sent up
from Pittsfield at 4.30 o'clock Sunday
morning, and a successful descent was
made at Sharon at 9.30 o'clock.
In the party were Edward C. Ely of
this city, brother of Alderman Ely, and
Fairman Dick of New: York, as told in
Saturday despatch from Pittsfield,
which said that they had intended
starting from Springfield, but being
unable to secure long distance balloon

and 60,000 cubic feet of gas were or
Pilot William Van Sleet of Pittsfield,
who went up with the party.had prom-
sed to take them on a double century
trip, and as there was a strong south
wind Saturday night the party thought
they might go to Canada and try for
the trophies offered to the balloon
which firsts lands on Canadian soil.
In order to make the double century
flight a dozen bags of sand weighing
00 pounds were needed. This meant
that the balloon would lift nearly a
on, including the passengers' -weight
of 750 pounds.

out of it but two minutes at a time.
He denied taking money from the big
pocketbook and said he had talked in
surance with Pulasky and had wit
nessed a paper for Pulasky when he
was trying to turn bis business over
to his brother. He said he sold an
insurance policy to Patrick Shea, bor
rowing $25.54 from W. F. Hill to send
the company, as he supposed Mr. Shea
was to pay toy the year, but he decided
to pay by the month. He borrowed $10
of Mr. Hill later. He did not need it
then, but wanted to teat Mr. Hill's
confidence in him. He claimed his
testimony in the city court was given
as it was because he didn't want Mr.
Hill to know of the matter.
After seeing the Lane farm Rock
wood said he went to Putnam and then
to Worcester, where he visited his
mother. He said he had about $'-'0
then and paid a few bills for his
mother. He stated a number of ways
in which he received the money. He
denied emphatically taking the money.
S. H. Thresher told of drawing a
paper for Pulasky, after which both
sides rested. The arguments were
made by Attorneys Hall, Douglass and
Hull and were completed at 4.45
o'clock. Judge Wheeler occupied but
a few minutes in charging the jury and
they retired at 4.52 and were out less
than twenty minutes. They brought fln
a verdict of guilty.
Considerable time was taken In
learning about Rockwood. Attorney
Douglass spoke in his behalf, stating
that his health was not good and that
he thought the sentence should be
light. State ' Attorney Hull showed
that he had- been in trouble before,
having been sentenced in Worcester,
and some time ago he took money
from an employe of the Occum mill
while coming down on an elevator.
Superintendent Perkins searched him
and the money was found in nis
clothes. Judge Wheeler inquired about
his health and Rockwood said it was
not good and that he could not do
hard work. The judge gave him some
good advice and said that he could
send him to prison for five years. He
thought, however, even if he 6ent him
for two years it would undermine his
health, and he decided to give him a
year in jail.
Court was then adjourned by Deputy
Sheriff Draper until Tuesday, May 24,
at 10 o'clock- In the meantime a date
will be set for hearing the motion in
the Addie Burns case.
