A SHREWI) SEXTOUN. Among the tourists who travel through France, a considerable num ber always visit the Cathedral at Rheims, a mongnilfcent example of Gothic architecture. In the tower there is an enormous clock, and it is the sexton's business to wind it every day-a very tiring job, as the weights are nnturally extremlnely heavy.

Whenever he shows the trippers this wonderful piece of mechanism, he remarks : "Ladies and gentlemen. if you (do not believe me regarding the heaviness of the clock woights, try for -ourseIves." Fabh of the trippers immediately ci es a turn or two to the wheel, and as there are some two hun drced visit'rs a day, the trippers un consciously an(d eagerly wind the clock for him, and in addition (says Maurice Dekohra in the "On looker") give him an extra tip for being ellowed to do his work

Painting Restored by Clever Method. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 20 February 1914

Painting Restored by Clever Method. 4 One of the cleverest methods of re storing a painting ever used was that applied. in New York recently in treating a canvas which, on ac count of its great age, had become almost as fragile as tissue paper. The first step was the gluing, by means of a vegetable conIpound, of a thick piece of Manilla paper over. the face of the painting. -- The plc ture was then turned over, aid from its tback Was picked thread by thread all the rotten canvas. At the end of this operation all that remained of the original work was a delicate shell of paint glued to a. sheet of paper. A new. piece of canvas was then attached to the back of the painit shell hby means of strong fish glue.. The Manilla paper on the face was easily re moved with hot water, after whiich there remained the painting as be fore, but mounted updii a strong new canvas.
