SETTING HIE CLOCKS
AN HOUR AHEAD
Several nations of Europe, under
the stress of the economy enforced by
the great war, have, set their clocks
an hour ahead, in order to use just
that much less artificial light, the
end of the working day, in Europe as
in America, being nearer darkness
than its beginning.
A number of American newspapers
are trying to start an agitation to in inaugurate
augurate inaugurate a similar practice in this
country, which shows how prone
many people are to speak without
thinking; also what an inadequate
comprehension they have of the size
and their lack of information of the
cusloms of the United States.
It used to be a boast of the English
that the sun never set on the British
empire. An, American once made the
apt retort that it did set on the
United States, because that nation
was the only one big enough for it to
set on. As a matter of fact, there
are two countries that have more con continuous
tinuous continuous land east and west than the
United States Canada and Russia.
The former extends from 50 to 140
degrees west longitude, the latter
from 20 to 170 westalmost halfway
around the northern hemisphere. But
the United States is a right smart of
a country it extends from 67 to 125,
and it takes the sun in his diurnal
journey almost four hours to cross it.
The European countries where the
clocks are being set ahead are com comparatively
paratively comparatively small. The greatest is
Germany, which is about as wide
from east to west as from New York
to St, Louis; that is not near so wide
as our central time belt. Great Brit Britain,
ain, Britain, the next, is some 300 miles east
to west, Holland is a mere dot on the
map; there, is no appreciable differ difference
ence difference in the time the sun rises on its
eastern and western boundaries.
France has not adopted the earlier
time; if she did, her territory is but
, little broader than Britain's.
The approximate speed of the sun
from east to west is a thousand miles
an hour, or about four minutes for
each degree of longitude. Thirty-five
years ago, every town in the country
ran on its own sun time. And every
railroad system had its time based
generally on its central point. .This
made endless confusion. A man in
New York could not figure what time
it was in Buffalo in his own state, let
alone on .what it was in Chicago or
In 1883 v the railroads adopted
standard time, they divided the
country into four belts eastern, cen central,
tral, central, mountain and Pacific time. Each
roughly covered about a thousand
miles and one hour was assigned to
each. It greatly simplified calculations
on railroad travel. A man in New
York knew that noon with him was 11
a. m. in Chicago, 10 in Denver and 9
The different communities ran for
years on their local time, but after
awhile, also, adopted the railroad
reckoning, and standard time is now
official in all parts of the United
States. '" :'
So if we set our clocks an hour
ahead, we will make nothing, for
where we gain an hour in one place
we .will lose in another.
In Ocala, it would make little dif-

sun time: if we set our clocks up we j
would be only 28 minutes ahead. If
we set them an hour ahead of sun
time, we would be an hour and '28
minutes ahead of railroad time, which
would be a little too much of a good I
thing. People living on the latitude
of Chicago would gain their hour. But
those on the latitude of San Antonio
would gain two. This would be all l
right for about four. months in the!
year. The other eight months in the
year they would have to take moreipay. ; It amounts to a fine on the Tin-

time, for it is the only system by
which the railroads can operate in I
such a big country, and it is inextri-1
cably mingled with all the affairs of
our every-day life. All s phases and
conditions not only of industrial but
social life are calculated on the ar
rival and departure of the trains.
If any community wants to gain an
hour of daylight, all it has to do is to
get together and resolve that all the!3
mercantile and industrial establish-1
ments shall open and close an hour I
sooner: It is easier to do this than to 1
have all the railroad systems in the
country set their clocks an hour
ahead, or to induce one system or

WONDER OF SHAKESPEARE"
Essay by Miss Ruby Fausett at the
Closing Exercises of the Ocala
On the twnty-third of last April,
there was celebrated throughout the
United States and probably the en entire
tire entire world, the three hundredth anni anniversary
versary anniversary of William Shakespeare. He
died April 23, 1616 on the fifty-ninth
anniversary of his birth. It has been
well said by Dr. Claxton, the. United
States Commissioner of Education.
that the most valuable possession of
any people is its greaty literature,
which interprets its life, expresses its
ideals, and fosters its objects and
aspirations. The greatest literary
genius yet produced by the English
speaking peoples is Shakespeare. His
dramas constitute our richest literary
Shakespeare holds an unique place
in literature. He was the most versa
tile of English writers, and also the
most expressive. Where he obtained
the fund of information necessary to
compose his plays and poems, it is
impossible to form an idea. Here is
an unknown country boy, poor and
poorly educated according to : the
standards of his age, who arrives at
the great city of London and goes to
work at add jobs in a theater. In a
year or two he is associated with
scholars and dramatists, the masters
of their age, writing plays of kings
and clowns, of gentlemen and heroes
and noble women, all of whose lives
he seems to know by intimate associ
ation. In a few years more he leads
all of those brilliant poets and dra dramatists
matists dramatists who have given undying glory
to the age of Elizabeth. Play after
play runs from his pen, mighty dra
mas of human life and character fol
lowing one another so rapidly that
good work seems impossible; yet they
stand the test of time, and their
poetry is still unrivaled in any la la-guage.
guage. la-guage. -v 'v-: ..'-;'I-v-U;;.J"
Nothing has ever so depicted the
sorrows of neglected age, the ingrati
tude of some children, the devotion of
others, as King Lear. No love story
ever more beautiful than "Romeo and
Juliet." No where else has the hol hol-lowness
lowness hol-lowness of ambition and the evils it
breeds been so clearly depicted as in
"Macbeth." s In a number of his plays
Shakespeare seems to have done, with
little notice at the time," what the
public later paid Charles Read in
money and fame for: namely, scoring
Eome of the evils of his day.
It is impossible to read many lines
in any of Shakespeare's plays with
out coming to some thought worth
treasuring. Forty years ago, a knowl knowledge
edge knowledge of Shakespeare and a knowledge
of the scriptures formed a common
understanding for the reading public
Shakespeare was of the people, and
there are few phases in every day life
that he has not: described. He was
also a historian as well as a dramatist.
His historical plays were the prede predecessors
cessors predecessors of the historical novels of later
years. It is to one of his historical
plays and to" "Midsummer Night's
Dream" that Shakespeare owed the
moderate fortune that enabled him to
pass his latter days in comparative
comfort A flattering allusion to
Queen Elizabeth in the latter play
brought him into favorable notice e.t
the court, and his last historical play
"Henry VIII" was a most artistic de
fence of the queen's father and moth mother,
er, mother, King Henry and Anna Boleyn, for
their marriage, following the divorce
of Queen Catherine.
Shakespeare's plays, as rendered
on the stage, had their greatest pop
ularity in the nineteenth century, in
the day when the education of the
people had progressed far enough to
understand them. The presentation
now in comparison with the number
of other plays is meager. The careful
observer does not like to see Shakes
peare rendered, by an inferior actor or
actress, and only ;the good ones can
do the subject justice. There seems
no prospect that .Shakespeare will
be more largely presented on the
stage than at present, but his place in
literature is secure for all time.
