A Wonderful Timepiece.
An American traveler in Japan once
saw a rare and wonderful JapuneKO time
piece. He described it as being in a
frame three feet wide and five feet long,
representing a noonday landscape of
great lovelinoss. In tho foreground were
plum and cherry trees and rich plants
in full bloom, in the rear a bill gradual
in ascent, from which flowed, or seemed
to flow, a cascade, admirably imitated
in crystal. From this point a threadliko
stream glided along encircling rocks
and islands in its windings, finally los
ing itself in a faroff stretch of wood
land. In a miniature sky above a golden
sun turned on a silver wire, striking the
hours on silver gongs as it passed Each
hour was marked on the frame and in
dicated by a slowly creeping tortoino,
which served in the place of a hand or
pointer. A bird of exquisite plnmago
sang at tho close of each hour, and as
the song ceuscd a mouse sprang from a
grotto near by and, scampering over the
hill in the garden, was soon lost to
view. -Jewelers' Review.
