The “Great Paul” at our Metropol itan cathedral weighs nearly 17 tons. Sometimes an interest Is given to a clock by its bells being visible and being struck by hammers which are wielded by special mechanically worked figures. The introduction of figures into clocks is by no means a new one, as is instanced in this coun try by the knights in amor who used to strike the hours at Wells cathedral with their battle axes. In the cele brated clock at Strasburg, among the host of figures a presentment of death is allowed to strike the hour on the bell, using a human bone for the pur pose. The rfial work of striking in large clocks is done by a special part quite separate from the timekeeping portion. In the mechanism the most important arrangement is a barrel after the fashion of that in a musical box, while outside the framework is placed a wheel with slots at varying intervals corresponding in length with the time taken up in striking one, two, three and so on up to twelve. The chimes of the Westminster clock have been repeated far and wide. The hour bell is, of course, "Big Ben,” which originally weighed 18 tons, and cracked. When recast the weight was decreased about two tons, and the belt has been cracked for the second time this many years. The quarter bells range from about four to a single ton, and are in very good tune. The hour bell of the royal courts of justice and us attendafit quarters collectively weigh five tons, and yet can barely be heard, so great is the traffic that runs beneath them. The Doncaster or Scarborough chimes are practically the same, but they do not sound at the half hour. For chiming tunes a carrillon machine, in addition jto the clock, is a necessity. The tunes which can be successively played de pend upon several conditions. First of all, the most suitable music is that which goes smoothly on its way and in which the same note is not required to be repeated too quickly. The nom ber of bells available is, however, the most important consideration, if there are enough of these. By the substitu tion of one barrel for another a great variety of airs can be produced. Among secular tunes. Home, Sweet Home, Caller Herrin’ and The Old Folks at Home are often chosen. The chimes of the old Royai Rx | change, among other things, played There is Nae Luck About the Hoase, and we may recall the fact that whew the historic building was burned ia 1838, and while the flames were at their height, the bells rendered the melody and then fell with a crash ! among the blazing ruins. Asa rale seven tunes are arranged on a barred, sit being secular and one sacred, suitable for six week days and a Sunday. At Sligo cathedral for instance, a tune is played foar times during the day on the nine bells, and as the earrillon is furnished with seven barrels, a different tune is prx> vided for seven times seven, or forty nine days. At Worcester, where there is a splendid peal of bells, thirty-five tunes are played; Manchester town hall has twenty-one bells, and thirty one tunes are provided. Several lx* don churches still enliven their sur roundings With their chimes—for in stance. St. Giles’. St. Bride’s, St Di onis' and St. Clement Danes. The clock at the last-mentioned building is peculiar, as it strikes the hour twie* . once on the tenor, or largest bell of the peal, and then on a small bell at the top of the tower. Mme. Teresa Carreno, the pianist, is preparing for her fourth marriage in Berlin, where she now has her home. She is to wed Signor Artaro Tagliapietra. who says he is a lieu tenant in the Italian army.
