A Bohemian glass polisher has per formed a wonderful feat of painstaking ingenuity. He has constructed a clock which, with the exception of the springs, is made entirely of glass. The glass plates and pillars of this extraordinary timepiece are bolted to gether with glass screws. The dial plate, bands, shafts and cogwheels are of glass, and glass wedges and pins are used for fastening the various parts of the running gear. , All the parts are ground to the aver age proportions of the metal parts of other clocks of the same size. The teeth of the cogwheels are cut with minute ex actness. . Only the balance wheel is heavier and thicker than it would be in the case of an ordinary clock. I,ike the clock itself, the key with which it is wound is made of glass. Many of the parts had to be made over and over again some as often as 40 times before a clock that would go and keep time was produced. Pearsons. NEW HAVEN CALLS MR. CLArl .
