If a man were in the fields and had no watch, how would he tell when it was noon ? Men like farmers and lumbermen be­come quite expert in noting the position of the sun. Years ago before there were any watches or clocks all sorts of de­vices were used for telling time. The Malays used a cocoanut shell and the East Indians a metal bowl with small holes in it. As far back as 710 B.C. shadow sticks and sun dials were used. The monument at Washington, D. C, makes a fine shadow stick.
