      This illustration doesn't show it very well, but the bottom vessel has a
      spout on the bottom just like the top one's. This spout would be corked
      and
      when the water had run its course the position of the vessels would be
      reversed;
      then the now-empty bottom vessel would be corked and the process started
      again. The example above was presumably used to time speeches in legal
      proceedings.

      Obviously the system stripped out the illustration. Sorry about that: It
      merely shows two identical vessels, each with a spout on its bottom, with one
      vessel elevated and water flowing from the upper to the lower.
      I should have just described it in the first place!
