So you've contradicted yourself once. ."Ah, but" you say, "what's the use of Its being right twice a day, if I can't tell when the time comes?" Why, suppose the clock points to 8 o'clock, don't you see that the clock Is right at 8 o'clock? Consequently when 8 o'clock comes your clock Is right "Yes, I see that," you reply. Very good; then you've contradicted yourself twice. New...
