There is one point in city ball park where
four large clocks can ? seen at once. As
I reached that spot one day last week, the
city hall bell boomed oat tbe twelve strokes
of "noon, and prompted a comparison be
tween the times reiristered. The city hall
clock was two miEUtes flow by the bell.
The Everett building clock was as much
too fast, the Garf:ld building clock
marked 12:03 and tbe big clock in Mon
tague street was bee ween two and three
mixtures fast. Curiosity called for a walk
around the hail, and I fonnd two of the
clocks in the tower marked the same hoar,
while tbe other two were keeping time on
their own hook. The clock on the Remsen
street side of the Garfield building differed
by two minutes from its mate on the Court
street side, and every one of the clocks at
which 1 looked differed from my watch.
M. Maxime du Camp, the French acade

in 1S30, the politics cf Frenchmen were
known by their beards. Supporters of
Louis Philippe wore "mutton chop'
whiskers. Bnapartists had mustaches and
imperials. Republicans did not shave at
all. and Legitimists wore their beards like
a collar, with shaven lips and chin.
