Records of the Weather Bureau for the

Of the Kentucky Congressman this story
Is teld: He was wounded at the battle of
Cynthtana. He lay in pain in the sun for
some time afterwards. While there a
young lady who was devoting her ener
gies te the care of the wounded found
him. She had nothing te shelter him
from the burning sun, and there was no
ambulance at hand. Hastily driving
some short sticks into the ground about
the soldier's head, she spread her hand
kerchief upon them and thus afforded
him a bit of shade while she attended as
best she could te his wound. When he
was taken te the hospital his leg was am
putated. Shu nursed the man back te
health in time and the acquaintance thus
formed developed into a case of true
love. After the soldier was honorably
discharged she became Mrs. Stene, the
wife of the Congressman.
A Wonder In Figures.
Seme person of a mathematical turn of
mind has discovered that the multipllca- -
tien of 0876543-31 (which you will observe
are simply the figures 1 te 0 inclusive re
versed) by 45 give 44,444,444,445. Re-,
versing the order of the digits and multi
plying 123450789 by 45 we get a result
equally as curious, viz., 5,555,555,505. If
we take 123450789 as the multiplicand y
and interchanging the figures in 45 se as te
make them read 54, tise the last numbers
as 'the multiplier, aud the result will be
O.COO.OOfl.OOfl. Returning te the multi
plicand 98754321 and tnking 54 as the
multiplier again, the result will be 53,838,
833,334 all 8s except the first and last
figures, which together read 54 the mul
plici . Taking the same multiplicand and
27, the half of 54, as the multiplier, the
product is 20,006,000,007, all 6s except the
first and last figure's which togethor read
as 27 the multiplier. New interchang

72 instead as a multiplier 087054321 as the
