But there are times when this effect

tored the race of incurable cranks in
philosophy, theology, .ii't «nd polities.
■The word "crank" has been,maliciously
misused for purposes of cynicaJ ridi-
.cule, but )t is too descriptive a nam.'
' to be set aside. The congeniaJ crank
is always started on Ilia career of In-

Chronometers are adjusted for tem
peratures varying from 50 degrees t<)
1)0 degrees, as a rule, but some makers
—especially in France—cool them dowp
to zero, and often they lu-e heated to
120 degrees. Beyond this point it is
dangerajis ,-tp heiat them, as tin' o|J

works might suffer.
Pocket watches are adjusted for,tem-
peratures varying from 35 degrees to 93
degrees. The process consists in put-
ting the watch in a close-fitting ease,
and placing this in a oqld room, or «
refrigerator with ice, and leaving it
there for some time, altering the works
so as to make it keep regular time,
Then it is very gradually lifted., great
,care being taken not to let the moist ure
iu the warm air condense uppu it.
Next it is put in a specially con-
structed oven, and heated to 00 or 100!
or 120 degrees, the machinery being j
again adjusted go regularly. Chrom j
