YET QUITE PERFECT. I There exists at Milan, Italy, a clock which Way justly be said to be one of the most wonderful in the world. This masterpiece of human ingenuity is made entirely of bread crumbs, and has naturally a history. A little more than a hundred years ago an Italian workman wished to try his hand at nakmg a clock but had not the means to boT the metal necessary for the construction oithe works, and was at a loss what to do. De».rmined not to be beaten, he conceived the ingenious idea, of saving his bread crunks from day to day, and solidifying them vith the aid of strong salts. At length by means he managed to obtain a very hard natter which could not be dissolved in water, ith which he constructed the clock. It was < perfect one in every way, and is now one f the curiosities of the capital of Lombardy.
