An Accommodating Clock. "Do you remember the old-time song about grandfather's clock, that 'stopped short, never to go again, when the old man died'?" asked a man employed in the clock department of a Chestnut street jewelry store; says the Philadelphia Phila-delphia Record. "Well, there's a family fam-ily living on South Fifteenth street that has a rather mysterious clock. It used to be on the sitting-room mantel but some time ago it was moved down stairs to the parlor It had naver kept good time, and when changed to its new quarters it refused to go at all For three months it has been pure'v umdiiieniai, out one evening last wcx while the master of tho house was seated in the parlor, he was surprised to hear the clock strike 9. He pull, d out his watch and found that it ws just exactly 9 o'clock to the fraction of a minute. He got up and wound the clock, and it has been keeping good time ever since. Strange, isn't it, that When it di,l make up its mind to start it should have started just exactly at I the right time?"
