I Kot Generally Known. ? ? ? Standing by a friend, the other day, I ex pressed a wish to know which point was the north. He at once pulled out his watch, looked at it, and pointed to the north. I i asked him whether he had a compass at tached to his cratch. *« AU watches,' he re- ' plied, ' are compasses.' Then he explained to me how this was. Point the hour hand ; .to the sun, and the south is exactly half war oetwecn the hour and the figure twelve on ! the watch. For instance, suppose that it is j four o'clock. Point the band indicating ! four to the sun and two on the watch is j exactly south. Suppose that it is eight o'clock ; point the hand indicating eight' to I the sun, and the figure ten on the watch is ! due south. My friend was quite surprised j that I did not know this, but I feel sure that ! many share my ignorance.
