NEW ARRANGEMENT FOR AN

The Mechanism Is Controlled by the
' Standard ' Clock' of the Observa
tory Explanation of Device
Tho new program appahitUs (Which
rlnga tho bolls for clnsBosi is working
vory satisfactorily. It .cojiBlsja of a
mechanism controlled by tho standard
clock of tho observatory so that It
rings tho bolls with all tho accuracy
of tho obsorvatory clock-. Tho mech
anism Itsolf consists of a drum ovor
which rubs an endloas ribbon of pa
por, graduated into minutos .contain
ing twelve hours In all. In this rib
bon 'aro punched two rows of hoios,
ono near each edgo ,oach holo for tho
ringing of a boll; ono row pf IioIob
rings tho bells on Monday, Wednes
day and .Friday tho othor rings Uiobo
of Tuosdny and Thursday; -it Is dono
In this wny: tho pnpor slldoa under a
Httlo brass spring; when tho tip of
this spring comes to a holo in tho
paper It comes In contact--with-tho
drum under the -papor -.through, tho
holo and an electric current passes;
for tho remainder of tho tlmo tho pa
por serves as an Insulator to keep
the curent from passing. -vAs tho on
tiro minute-is punched out of tho pa
per, tho IjcIIs would rIng"for a. wholo
minute, but the current, nftor passing
through this apparatus, goos to tho
standard clock, whoro It must alaoet
Uirough ocntaot points which" close
for only bIx seconds, Just nt thorbo
ginning of tho mimito; this operates
tho hells with all- the accuracy of tho
standard clock, whilo tho, ribbon in
tho program apparatus moroly docidos
at which mlnuto tho curfont shall
LiasB. Actually tho contacts' in tho
standnrd clock are sot to close ono
second beforo tho mlnuto and to oppn
fivo seconds nftor tho mlnuto; for it
takes about a second for tho gongs
to aqtually grind out tho first Btorko.
As to tho accuracy of 'tho obsorva
tory clock, tho following record for
the past week may bo taken as a fair
sample; it could bo kept moro noarly

seem necessary; the aim is to tako
