This was a paragraph in a general article under the heading 


    During his address yesterday in Wesley Church, Mr WH Judkins told a story to illustrate the manner in which many workers watch the clock.  A friend, he said, had told him that on a suburban railway station he had been watching  a gang of carpenters working. The clock struck 5, and, with one accord, the tools dropped from the hands of men.  “Quite right, too!” said a man in the audience.  “Was it quite right?” ask Mr Judkins. “The man with the hammer left one nail half driven home.”  “It’s a lie!” said the previous interrupter.  “I can believe my friend.” replied the speaker.  It was my father, and anybody who knows him will know that he would not make  statements like that unless they were true.
