A clock recently patented in France is in imitation of a tambourine, on the parch ment head of which is painted a circle of (lowers, corresponding to the hour figures of ordinary dials. On examination two liees, one large and the other small, ore discov ered crawling among the flowers. The small bee runs rapidly from one flower to another, completing the circle in an hour, while the large one takes twelve hours to eomplete the circuit. The parchment surface is un broken and tho Dees simply laid upon it, but t wo magnets connected with the clock-work inside the tambourine move just under the membrane, and the insects, which are of iron, follow them.
