USE FOUR HOUR HANDS.
Then Your Watteh WHl Keep Tb en
' All Our Standard Times.
The average commercial traveler who
journeys about the United States has
to keep a close watch on his timepiece
to see that it is telling the truth. There
is an hour's difference in time when
you enter and-leave some cities, and
it's an Important matter that you do
not forget to set your watch back or
forward an hour, according to which
way you are traveling. If you over overlook
look overlook it you may miss a train.
An express official who travel al almost
most almost all the time and is so busy that
he sometimes forgets to change his
watch at Detroit, Mich., for instance,
or at Dedge City, la., has frequently
had an experience of this kind. Some Sometimes
times Sometimes he has, arrived an hour ahead
of time or perhaps an hour after a
train has left, giving him time enough
Recently he conceived the idea of
making his watch tell all four different
times eastern, central, mountain and
Pacific. He went to a jeweler and had
extra hour bands put on his timepiece,
each of a different color, so that he
can recognize It at a glance on the face
of his watch. For instance, the ordi ordinary
nary ordinary hour hand, set at eastern time,
is silver; a blue hand, set an hour
back, represents central time; a red
hand, for mountain time, is set two
hours back, and a green hour hand,
three hours back, represents Pacific
You caa do this to your own watch.
The Jeweler will make a set of hands
of these colors and alter your watch
