WHEN ALL CLOCKS
SET BACK HOUR
Heavens Will Seem to Slip
Cog and Everything Will
Appear to Happen an
By WILLIAM F. RIGGE.
On the 27th, the last Sunday of
(he month, at 2 a. m., according to
the daylight saving law, all our
clocks are to be set back an hour
ahd are again to indicate the usual
time that they showed before the
law went into effect. This turning
back of an hour is best done in prac
tice the evening before, just as we
, are about to retire for the night.
That night will then by an hour
longer than usual and . will thus
restore to us the hour we lost in
Turning the clock an hour back
is, however, not as simple an opera-
; tion as setting it an hour forward,
as we did on the last Sunday of
March. Every clock may at anv
tune be set forward any fraction of
an hour as well as any number of
hours by simply turning the minute
hand forward, but it is not every
' timepiece that may be set back
, without injury to itself. A watch
or a clock that indicates time only
without a striking contrivance and
without an alarm, may generally be
set backward as well as forward.
But if the timepiece strikes the
hours, or half hours, or quarters, or
has an alarm ,jr similar mechanism
like a program clock, we can never
without serious injury turn the min
ute hand backward past the time
that this attachment is to operate.
The only thing to do with such a
,clock is to stop it altogether for an
hour by comparing it with a watch
or other clock that is kept going
during the interval. There is no
harm done in stopping the clock
longer than an hour, because, as said
before, we can at any time turn any
timepiece forward by the difference.
"We may also if we like set the clock
backward twice or oftener by frac
tions of an hour. But in no case
should we turn it backward past its
striking time of the time it is to set
off its alarm or other attachment.
The penalty for the violating of this
rule will be a serious injury to our
Just as on the last Sunday of
March, the heavens will seem to
slip a cog, and everything will at
once appear to happen an hour
sooner. Thus on Saturday, Octo
ber 26, the sun will rise at 7:48 and
, set at 6:29, while on Sunday, the
27th, it will rise at 6:49 and set at
5:27. This will seem on Sunday
evening as if the day had suddenly
been shortened by an hour. On Sun
day morning, however, it will bring
us an unusual brightness. The
moon also will feci the jog, be
cause, while it is accustomed al
ways to rise, south, and set later
on the following day, it will rise
only two minutes later on the 28th
than on the 27th, and actually south
and set even earlier on the 27th
than on the 26th. The. true length
of the day is of course not affected.
This is II hours 46 minutes on
the 1st, 11 hours 8 minutes on the
- 35th, and 10 hours 29 minutes on
the 31st, a loss of 1 hour 17 minutes
during the month.
There are no planets visible yet
in the evening sky. Jupiter is the
first to appear, rising at 31:29 p. in.
on the 15th. Saturn comes next,
rising at 2:50 a. m., and then Venus
at 6:48 a. m. Mars is too near the
sun to be seen.
The moon is in conjunction with ;
Saturn on the 1st and 28th, with ,
Venus on the 3d, and with Jupiter j
on the 25th. i

Lt. Storrs Butler Dies at
Camp Dix of Pneumonia
Word has just been received here
of the death of Lt. Storrs W. Butler,
son of Dr. and Mrs. S. Wright
Butler, formerly of Omaha. Dr.
Butler was pastor of St. Mary's
Avenue Congregational church from
1890 to 1895, and the son was born
at Thirtieth and Mason streets just
25 years ago. At the time of his
death he was stationed at Camp
Dix, New Jersey. He was married
and his home was in Culbertson,
N. J. He is survived by a wife, sis
ter and his parents.
Lieutenant Butler was a victim
of a severe cold, which developed
into pneumonia. He was to have
gone overseas several weeks ago,
but was detained in this country for
an operation on his tonsils and was
acting as instructor at Camp Dix at
the time of his death.
Dr. and Mrs. Butler now live in
PoUghkeepsie. N. Y. They still
have a large circle of warm friends
in Omaha, who remember Lieuten
ant Butler as a little boy, and whose
most "sincere sympathy will go out
to the bereaved parents.
