Where a petition for rehearing of an order of the bankruptcy court adjudging the debtor a bankrupt is allowed to be filed out of time, and the court, upon consideration of the merits, denies the petition, the time for the taking of an appeal from the order of adjudication runs not from the date of such order, but from the date of the denial of the petition for rehearing.
