that there was something wrong with the

o'clock yesterday morning th-y ooosed to

in m many a iin was: "What's tho mntter
with the town clock?"
It didn't take Timekeeper 12. P. (Jross
long to 11 iid out what was tho trouble.
The main rod to tho clock was broken.
Tho reason why it broke was because an
electric wire had been wound ubOUt tho
1 od by one of the employes of the electric
Company, The man doubtless thought it
a .- ie ihiug to do, but it didn't work well,
for as th'i hours posted the strniu on the

pivo way. It was tho rod, und thou the
Mr. dross snpsrintended tho repairs, and
it wns found hard work. But at 2 in tho

clock started on its never ending round.
