SOLDIERS SEE GIANT CLOCK
Massive Timepiece In House of Com
mons Tower, Reaarded as One of
World's Best Timekeepers.
Fifty dlsnbled soldiers, mnny of
whom had lost n leg In tho wrir nnd
wore an nrtlflclnl one In Its place,
climbed tho SCO steps of tho House
of Commons tower In London to study
thu mechanism of "Rig Ron," the
giant timepiece. The soldiers are being
trained by tho ministry of labor in
ivvtch and clock repairing.
A guide told tho party that the
clock was designed, by Lord Grim
thorp, nnd was plnced In the tower
In 1805. It has been working ever
slnco, and Is still regarded as one oi
the best timekeepers In tho world. The
minute hand Is 14 feet long nnd
relglis 224 pounds, nnd tho pendu
lum, which requires two seconds to
complete ench swing, weighs 700
pounds. Tho bell which sounds the
hours has a diameter of nine feet,
nnd weighs 14 tons, tho weight of the
striking hammer being 700 pounds.
An electric motor now winds the clock
In 20 minutes. Formerly it took two
men working three ufternoons a week
to complete the task

Saturday afternoon Indians began
arriving nt El Cajon and that night
tho valley sky was aglow with tho
roflectod light of mnny camp fires.
Long before tho hour of services
tho following morning, piembors and
their friends gathered nt tho church
Preceding tho solemn high mnss, tho
bishop with miter and crozler open

day was typically Callfornian and
the glitter of the son's rays upon
tho golden strands of the vestments,
the flutter of whlto surplices In the
light breeze and the stately move
ments of the clergymen with their
deep-toned chant of the age-old rit
ual, made an Impressive ceremonial.
Children and adults filed along
the altar rallwhlle tho bishop and
his assisting priests annplnted them
with sacred oil and administered a
light blow on the cheek that marked
them ns soldiers of the cross.

these played u part In
the dull experience of
the odd ten people who
had lived year In and

city boarding bouse.
Its proprietress was
a good-hearted woman,
but the constant grind
had worn her out.
As Christmas approached, however,
the faded, but faithful old eyes

grew rosy at the
suggestion nnd Wil

to his room, but It was of no avail.
There was vast chattering and Jol
lity as after breakfast next morning
there was an adjournment to the sit
ting room. The master of cere
monies, Bascom's eyes twinkled as
one after another the stockings were
apportioned, for he was a practical
Joker. Willis noted that his stocking
was bulging and heavy. He peer
ed within It, then showed a lump of
coal and a raw potato.
Somehow his heart was chilled.
Trivial as was the Incident, it came
like a direct blow In the face. Was
the erratic donation a slurring re
minder of his poverty? All at once
the barrenness of his lonely life over
came him In full force. He went up
to his room gloomily.
A servant kpocked at the door and
handed him a letter. Mechanically he
opened it and then sprang to his feet,
white to the lips and quivering all
over. He stood like one In a maze.
There was a second timid summons
at the door. Willis opened It to face
Miss Deane, a parcel In her hand.
"Will you please step Into the hall,"
she fluttered, and he thought how
lovely she looked in her fresh, dainty

coming closer to her, "would you
share It with me?"
There was a sob and Miss Deane
wavered. Willis tenderly clasped her
waist. Be knew she had given assent
In her shrinking way.
"I have Just received a letter from
the lawyer of a near relative appris
