At a certain fiontier pont at which
Shafter, who then held an inferior rank,
was commander many years ago, a dis
cussion arose among several oilier i s at
to the exact time of day. A captain,
with his watch in his hand, said:
"It is now exactly 3 o'clock."
"Oh, no!" said a lieutenant. "Iv
my time it's eight minutes past 3."
A third young oflicor drew his watc h
out of his pocket. "I know my time is
exactly right, "he said, "and my watch
says two minutes past 3."
At this jancturo Major Shafter looked
at his silver watch.
"I don't know what your watches
say," he remarked, "but I wish you to
understand that in this command it is
five minutes past 3."
