Illuminating Clock on a New Principle.

A fine specimen of this ingenious invention has just been fixed on the front of Day's Outfitting Warehouse, Exeter 'Change, Strand, in which, by a very curious contrivance, the letters "Exeter Change" are substituted for the usual figures in clock dials. Its effects is striking, and it is by far the best production of Mr. Paine, the ingenious inventor of the illuminating dials. The clock strikes on a deep-toned bell, and rings the workmen on and off at stated periods, it lights? itself by a curious process, and is ? most complete piece of machinery.
