A few minutes before 12 o'oIock.
noon every day In the year a young
man walks into a certain room of the
main building at the Naval Observa
tory, which is set up on a hill in the
northwestern part of the District ot
Columbia. He glances at the various
clocks in the room and then goes over
to a table which is covered with elec
He watches the clocks to his left
closely and waits for the hands to
reach five minutes to 12. As the sec
ond hand approaches the 60 on turn
dial he prepares to shift a switch. The
clock is so finely adjusted that when
the second hand points to 60 it ex
actly marks the beginning of a new
As It touches the 60 the switches
are thrown on. That starts a signal

900,000 miles of telegraph lines. In

Contact of Electric Points.
The clock which keeps the time In
the observatory ticks' on. With eacn
tick there is a contact of electric
points. A circuit is closed and an In
strument on the table similar in ap
pearance to a telegraph sounder ticks
It goes on to the 29th second, then
skips one tick, then resumes its steady
sounding until the last five seconds,
then there . another gap. These gaps
are for the purpose of giving listen
ers at other ends of the great system
of wires a chance to know what part
of the minute the clock Is on. So It
goes up to the last minute.
At the 29th second there Is again
the skipping of one second. Finally
the clock gets around to the 50th sec
ond. The circuit remains open for
ten seconds. There is silence all al
ong the telegraph wires.
At the other ends, where there are
time balls or merely train operators,
the long pause indicates that noon Is
almost there. The second hand
makes on toward 60 and finally reach
es the mark. Then there is another
click, In about a second the sounder
Is down and that tells hundreds of
thousands of people that it is noon
in Washington, that the Naval Obser
vatory says so, and that the Naval
Observatory Is now one of the best
time-keeping institutions In the United

it is a wonderful operation, this
getting the time, and highly technical.
Finely adjusted clocks, chronographs
and other Instruments of great value
arc used, and the taking and record

The mean time Is determined by as
tronomical observations. When cer
tain stars pass the 75th meridian,
called the meridian of Washington,
it is a certain time. The operator
watches for the stars through a tele
scope, the field of which is covered
with fine wires.
As the stars reach a certain point
in transit the operator presses a key
in his hand A contact is made and
recorded on a chronograph. The
chronograph consists of a cylinder
covered with paper. A fountain pen
rests on the paper. It is held by an
arm attached to the mechanism. The
cylinder revolves once a minute and
the pen moves along the surface of
the paper, making a spiral line.
A sidereal clock of the finest make
la running in a vault underneath the
observatory. With each tick of the
clock there is a contact of two points.
These two points are attached to
wires that lead to an electro-magnet
attached to the arm and holds the pen
of the chronograph. The clock Is
so adjusted that each minute the pen
jumps to one side. Consequently there
i - a break in the line.
Observer Watches stars.
There are other breaks, too, when
the observer watches the stars ucross
the lines In the field of the telescope.
The mean time thus recorded for each
star after being corrected for errors,
is the clock time of the star's transit.
Whatever difference there is between
this clock time and the sidereal time
marked by the transit of the stars Is
the error of the clock. From these
astronomical observations the sider
eal time Is obtained. The error am
ounts to but little, rarely being more
than from flve-hundredths to ten one
hundredths of a second.
The sidereal clocks are wonderful
pieces of work. They are made In
Berlin by a man named Rlefler.
There are two clocks which may be
used in automatically sending out the
time, so if one should break down the
other would be ready for the emer

OLD AGE PENSIONS
LIKELY IN FRANCE
Paris. The French senate has re
assembled and Is preparing to dis
cuss the bill which deals with work
men's pensions. The chamber of
deputies passed a workmen's pension
bill two years ago, but it failed to
indicate the necessary means of put
ting it into operation. The senate re
garded the bill as quite Impractica
ble, since the question of where the
money was to come from had virtu
ally been left unsolved. The senate
set to work to revise the original
scheme, but it seems probable that
but for the recent proof of dangerous
unrest among the working classes,
who are complaining that parliament
is neglecting their Interests, the sec
ond chamber would have allowed th
study of the measure n committee
to drag on until the general elections.
The government rightly feels that
such procrastination Is Imprudent,
and that there Is no time to be lost
If the radical party Is to return to
the electors with anything tangible
to show for four years of parliament
ary work. The prime minister an
nounced only three days ago In the
chamber of deputies that he intended
to complete his program before the
close of the present legislative period.
A workmen's pension bill would be
for him and for his party an asset
far more acceptable than an Income
The funds for old age pensions will
be contributed by the employe, em
ployer and the state. The contribu
tion of the employe, to which will
bo added the "majoratlons" of the
state, will be capitalized for the pay
ment of pensions, while the contri
butions of the employers will, with
the state subvention, be distributed
immediately among the interested
parties. The obligatory annual con
tribution of the workman will
amount to $1.20, and It Is anticipated
that additional optional contribu
tions will raise It to an average of
$1.80. The employers' annual con
tribution for each employe will
amount to the same sum.

Portland. Orders for the annual
stale rifle competition In which 24
teama of riflemen representing every
section of the state where National
( ; uard troops are stationed will com
pete for trophies and medals, were
issued yesterday from headquarter of
the Oregon National Guard.
Four important contests to estab
lish the supremacy In rifle marksman
ship of the various organizations arc
provided, together with a match for
revolver marksmen. The competition
will open August 1 and will continue
until August 3, or until the matches
The four important rifle matches
named in the orders are the state tro
phy match, the state medal match,
the state Individual match and the
governor's trophy match. The one
about which the greatest interest cen
ters is the governor's trophy match.
Inasmuch as it will establish the regi
mental championship. Heretofore
these laurels have gone to the Fourtii
Infantry, of Southern Oregon, owing
I to the better facilities for preliminary
, practice on the Southern Oregon rifle
ranges. This year however, the Third
Infantry has had the advantage of
the new Clackamas Station range and
i.s confident of n different outcome.
This match will be hard fought and
It will be hard to pick the winner In
advance, although the Southern Com
I mand would seem to have a slight nd
Hard to Pick Winners.
The outcome of the state Individual
I match will be the most spectacular
j Of the lot. Nearly every one of the 120
ntieinen to lie on the range will enter
and each man will be for himself.
That match also went to Southern Ore
gon last year, but the Third Infantry
has developed several marksmen who
believe they have a chance this time.
The state trophy match will be for the
company championship and the state
medal match a contest Open to nil
riflemen competing in the state tronby
The firing of the various events will
include every range. In the Star
trophy match there will be slow- fire at
200 anil 600 yards, and rapid fire at
200 yards. The same order of the
fire will be followed n the state med
al match. In the Individual contest
I there will be a skirmish run. 200 yards
rapid fire. 200 yards slow fire, an !
slow fire at 600, 800 and 1000 yards
In the governor's trophy match there
will be rapid fire at 200 yards and
slow fire at 800 and 1000 yards.
Shoot for Silver Cup.
In the state trophy match the prize
will be a silver cup to become the pro
perty of the Organisation winning it
three times. In the state medal
match, the award will be a gold med
al, to become the property of the of
ficer or man winning It three times.
The outcome of this match will be
based on the highest individual scores
of the company championship contest.
In the individual competition there
will be ten medals, one gold for the
competitor making the highest ag
gregate score, two silver medals for
the second and third highest aggre
gate scores, five bronze medals for
the next highest aggregate scores, one
silver medal for the highest aggregate
In slow fire, a silver medal for the
highest aggregate In rapid fire, und a
silver medal for the highest aggregate
score In skirmish fire.
The state pistol match will be open
to all officers and non-commissioned
officers present on the range. There
will be slow, timed and rapid fire in
this event and the prizes will be a gold
medal nnd two silver medals for the
first, second and third highest aggre
Provision is made in the orders that
all members of teams and competitors
must have performed 75 per cent of
military uty, such as parades, drills,
encampments nnd other duties, during
the time they have been in the Guard.
Certification of such service must be
