J. W. Pettis TWO CLOCKS START IN RAG! Puzzle Is to Find Cut Whether Timepiece of Grandfather Started Ahead of the Alarm. Testerday morning" two clocks~ started ?- ra.ce. The alarip clcclc vi ent so fast that it gained one minute an hour, while grandfather's clock ran so slow that it lost two minutes an hour. The picture sho^s the alarm j clock to be one hour ahead at the finish. But v.-ho can tell the hour -when the race started? Grandfather's clock: lost two minutes every hour and the alarm clock: gained one minute every hour, so it is evident that the alarm clock ia every hour's time gained three minutes upon the other. Therefore, in twenty hours It gained sixty minutes and from the picture Genoa before rursinjr westward, and I .taink near!;.- al! stop ar Gibraltar Then there are the Azores and. ila deira. out In the Atlantic."
