C., Dec. 17 — ’he bill appropriating $50,000 to liable the United States to acquire t»tle to the abandoned Fort Brown military reservation an the Rio Grande iu Texas which passed the house today bas an interest ing history. An act appropriating more than $100,000 above the amount named is bow on the statute bonks, but has never been paid. In the Forty-eighth Congress John Hancock introduced a hill to purchase the Fart Brown military reservation which, during the Mexican war, had been used as a base of operations by the United States government. The bill went to the appropriations com mince and received favorable en deiscmetit. The war department and appropiation* committee refer red enactment of legislation for purchase of the reservation on representations that it was a military necessary. It wag decided that tho money should be paid by the secretary of war upon attorney gen eral's certificate being produced. The attorney general found there were a number of suiali claimants to the    land    and they had brought suit in the Federal Court    for    the purpose of acquirng title by securing declarations in favor ot certain parties. These claimants agreed to submit tho claims to the appropri ate .     n    ..    _{ 'atioa to arbitration aud. Congress Washington, Dec. 17— Mr. Bit    * F IRS! KIWI UKK § o) OF (o- J!

Meanwhile a dispHt* arose between claimants and certain persons who claimed leos for service as attorney iu working the matter through con gress. They went to llolman, chairman of the appropriations committee, put in remonstrance against payment of the money and demanded investigation into the alleged pries* to bs paid, which was tar more than the land was worth, making duo allowance for any claims of sealers for pay for occupation of their lands. Mr. Holman took steps which proved to be etfectaal in restraining payment of the money. Secretary Elkina declined to pay out the appropriation, and the matter went to the military committee of the house which Miter investigation, re ported the bill passed today appro Hating $30,000 instead ot $160, \ Queer Old dock. An old lady who is innocent of any intention of being a collector numbers among her cherished pos -sessions a very interesting old time piece. It is a clock, which, in its peculiar construction, seems to coli trovert all our preconceived ideas of what a clock should be, says the Philadelphia Times. In place of the familiar face, to which we have grown so accustom ed, there are two oroad bands or rings of white porcelian, placed lat erally, one above tho other, and resting upon four upright posts or small pillars of white marble. The upper st these two hands is divided into 12 equal parts by delicate lines of gilding. Oh each of the small tablets so formed is imprinted in figures of gilt one of the Lours of the day, ranging from I to 12. The lower band is made, in a similar manner, to represent the division of time into minutes. Immediately in front of these hands is fixed a single gilded hand, which points upward. By moans of the usual mechanism of “works,” as it iscommoaly called, the bands are made to revolve stead ii J from left to right. Thus, by h iving the hours and minutes pass directly hack of it, the solitary indicator is enabled ts “tell the time"* accurately without departure from its own upward position. The machinery of the clock is sn ti rely exposed, the network of wheels being so placed as to occupy the space within the circle formed by tile revolving bands. The whole, glittering with a gild cd ornamentation aud resting upon a low, ebonizcd stand, is surmount sd by a cylindrical glass case about 8 or IO inches in height. Occupy ing the place of honor in the middle of the high mantelpiece, this odd timepiece serves ai a pretty or (lament, though it has long sine* been placed on the retired list as a reliable tiine-teller. There seems to bo somelhiog po culiarly appropriate in the method employed in this old time clock tor noting the dight of time. It is, iudeed, the hours that pas* by, and it is quite natural that the construe tors of pioneer tiine-piece should have observed this tact in the planning of their instruments. The owner cf this clock knows nothing of its history further than its having been “in tho family al ways.” It came into her posses •ion through her father.
