Each part of the clock has a Cutter or a a tools Peculiar to itself. Replacing one of these cutters w Ith another is the work of but a few minutes when it is necessary to change the work. As All these parts heretofore wer slowly turned out on a hand lathe it will readily to s in that the automatic screw machine must materially increase the capacity of the Plant without Deni hiding corresponding increase of flour space.

Rut the production did not depend entirely upon the Beauty of the stage setting nor the brilliancy of the electrical display but the acting was excellent. The audience always discriminating did not allow Stroug lines finely spoken to pass unnoticed. Another Welcome feature which was properly appreciated was the song of the intermezzo from a a Cavalleri it has never been Sun so Well or with such a Superb voice in a local theatre before.
