Something Queer in the Numbers.
New York Sun.
Mr. John V. Kirk, the white-haired
veteran who was with Morse
when the first working telegraph
lino va stretched, and who stood
beside the grput inventor when the
first message was transmitted from
Annapolis Junction to Washington,
has made, during his life, a great
many Interesting calculations in
numbers. The two most remarkable
number in the world are 3 and 7.
"The numeral 7," says Mr. Kirk,
the Arabians got from India, and
all following have taken it from the
Arabians. It is conspicuous in Bib-
cal lore, being mentioned over 300
times in the Scriptures, either alone
or compounded with other words. It
seems a favorite numeral with the
divine mind, outside as well as in
side the Bible, as nature demon
strates In many ways, and all the
other numbers bow to it. There is
also another divine favorite, the
number 3 the Trinity. This Is
brought out by u combination of figures-that
is somewhat remarkable.
t is the six figures 142,857.
"Multiply this by 2, the answer is
"Multiply this by 3, the answer is
"Multiply this by 4, the answer is
"Multiply this by 5, the answer is
"Multiply this by G, the answer is
"lach answer contains the same
figures as the original sum and no
others, and that three of the figures
of the sura remain together in each
answer, thus showing that figures
preserve the Trinity.
"Thus 285 appears in the first and
second numbers, 571 in the second
and third, 428 In the third and fourth,
and 142 in the fourth and fifth.
"It is also interesting to note that,
taking out of any two of these sums
the group of three common to both,
the other three, read in the usual or
der from Jeit to right will also be in
the same order in both sums.
"Take tne first ana seconu Bums,
for example. The group 285 is cqpi-
mou to both. Having read 285 out
of thesecoud sum, read right along
and bring in the first figure of the
thousands last. It will read 714
All the others will read in the same
"Again, note that the two groups
of three in the first sum are the same
as the two groups ot threes in the
fourth, reversed in order, and that
the same thing is true of the second
and third. The last multiplication
has its groups of threes the same as
those of the original number, revers
'Examine these results again, and
you will see that in these calculations
all the numerals have appeared save
the 9. Now multiply the origna
sum by the mighty 7 the divine fa
vorite of the Bible and of creation
and behold the answer ! The last of
the numerals, and that one only in
groups of three again the Trinity
"No other combination of numbers
will produce the same results. Does
not thi3 show the imperial multipo
tent numeral 7 and its divinity ?"

Fish on Dry Land.
In some foreign countries walkin
usn are quite common. This singu
lar creature is one of a group
which the cr.rpers form arms that
support the pectoral fins, and thus
enable the fish to walk along the
ground almost like a quadruped. On
therock3 of Ceylon washed by th
surf, there are other little walkin
fish which run up the wet stones wit
the utmost ease and rapidity. By
the aid oi the pectoral and ventra
nns and gut-eases they move over
the damp sands, ascend the roots of
the mangroves, and climb uo the
smooth face cf the rocks in search of
ilies. Many of the freshwater fish of
the same island possess the same
power of leaving their native ele
ment and returning to it again after
long pilgrimages on dry land.
When the pools they inhabit get low
in the summer season they start ofr,
led by an unexplained instinct, to
the nearest considerable body of wa
ter. The fish most often seen on
shore excursions is a species of perch.
It grows to about six inches in length.
Aided by an admirable apparatus
with which Nature has gifted its
head, the little creature issues boldly
from its native haunts, and proceeds
on a toilsome march to its new habi
tation. The expedition is made at
ight or early in tho morning, while
the grass is wet with dew. In its
istress however.it is sometimes com
pelled to move by day.

It is not only in religious circles
that we find grievous factions, but in
secular bodies as well.and a hundred
fold more so, at that. .Just what de-
ight the secular press find in making
religious teaching and doctrine their
chief point of criticism, when as a
matter of fact it is entirely beyond
their calling, is good evidence that
these men are more or less pantheists
than believers in any Church or re
igious doctrine, and would rather
lelp degenerate the morals so essen
tial to the well-being of the human
race here and hereafter, would they
be respected for doing so.than to ever
grant any commendation whatever.
The editor of the secular paper must
remember that even though it be pos
sible for evils to manifest themselves
in churches and religious circles, the
cause of Christian influence is by no
means impaired, neither is the Gos'
pel, which we holda3 the grace-sav
ing power of man, at all impaired.
These gentlemen should also bear in
mind that it is equally possible tor a
Juda9 to find entrance to a Church
a3 it is for a deceptive politician to at
tain to a public office upon which the
principles and justice to the public
depend. But in this case, which we
know to be quite common indeed,
would these same would-be religious
critics condemn the government sim
ply because her public trust has been
betrayed in the person of one or more
rascally officials? No; we think not.
If there is any fault at all to find in
the Churches oi today, m the sense
they claim, in that it fails to accom
push the purpose, in man, It is
intended.to, it is simply because t
few devils have found entrance, ant
are betraying her sacred interests;
but this does not defile the Church at
all, neither does it defile the Gospel,
and neither does it defile God.

A SUDDEN SHOWER.
Pnrcfooted boys scud up the street,
Or skurry under sheltering sheds;
And sohool-Klrl faces, pale and sweet,
Gleum from the shawls about their heads.
Doors bung; and mothers voices call
From alien homes; and rusty Bates
Are slummed; and high above it all
The thunder grim reverberates.
And then abrupt, the rain, the ruin I
The earth lies Rasping; and the eyes
r.t'hind tho streaming window-panes
Smile at the trouble of tho skies.
The highway smokes, sharp echoes ring;
The cattle bawl and cow-bells clunk;
And into town conies galloping
The farmer's horse, with steaming flank,
The swallow dips beneath the eaves,
And flirts his plumes and folds his wings;
And under the cataba leaves
The caterplMar curls and clings.
The bumble-bee is pelted down
The wet stem of the hollyhock;
And sullenly In spatterod brown
Tho cricket leaps the garden walk.
Within, tho baby claps his hands
And crows withrapture strange and vague;
Without, beneath the rose bush stand
A dripping rooster on one leg.

A Young Bridegroom'. Emtmrraiting
Experience nt the Board of Trade.
A day or two ago, a few minutes be
fore the opening of the board of trade,
there stepped into one of the elevators in
tho building a well known commission
man ana a country customer. The
countrymnn was a young, fresh faced,
unsophisticated looking chap, who was
in Chicago for tho first time looking
after a couple of cars of wheat that he
had shipped in. As the elevator rose ho
casually remarked to the commission
man : "I was married last night and this
is a sort of a bridal trip. " Congratula
tions were extended by the commission
man as they stepped out in the hall lead
ing to the exchange. Among the others
who rode up in the elevator was a cer
tain blonde young man whose love for a
practical joke has made him rather
famous on the floor. He had chanced
to stand back to back with the young
countryman, had overheard the confi
dential admission made by him to his
friend, and as they Btepped from the
elevator he managed to get a good look
at Mr. Younghusband.
An hour or so later, when he had a
few momenta to himself, he stepped over
to the telegraph counter and wrote up a
blank : u I have bet flOO to 110 that you
wero recently married. Do I win my
bet?" This he folded and placed in an
envelope, and calling a messenger boy
pointed out Mr. Younghusband and bado
lain deliver the message.
He told a few of his cronies on the
floor what he had done and the young
countryman was watched with consider
able interest by a dozen or twenty traders
in various parts of the crowd. He re
ceived the message from the boy with a
half doubting look, oiened it slowly, and
as he comprehended its contents his face
was dyed a deep crimson, while a foolish
smile lifted tho corner of his moutH. Ha
looked about him sheepishly to see if he
could discover the author of the message
and then beat a rather precipitous re
treat. He failed to put in an appearance
again that d;ty. Subsequently the author
of the note asked the young man's broker
if he had said anything about it.
"Yes, he did. And ho was the most
surprised man you ever raw. He could
not imagine whore the note came from,
and when he said good bye to mo lie ob
served : 'Dick, these board of trade fal
lows are too all fired smart for me. I
don't wonder that they can skiu in u
they are all mind readers, an some of
them seem to be.' And he went homo

A Few of the BInny Queer Thing to Bu
Found in the World.
French scientists are puzzling over a
spider which was discovered iu u cavity
in a stone. It is estimated that the stono
must be at least 4,000 years old ; this not
withstanding, however, the spider is
quite lively and very youthful in its an
tics. It is blind and has no mouth.
Crows are commonly said to live for
100 years, and turtles are reported to
have even longer life; but if the lato
Professor Baird be right, the greatest
amount of longevity is possessed by
fishes. Professor Baird once said that as
a fish has no maturity there is nothing
to prevent it living indefinitely and grow
ing continually. He cited, in proof, a
pike in Russia whose age is known to
date back to the fifteenth century. In tho
Royal Aquarium at St. Petersburg there
are hundreds of fish that were put in
over 150 years ago.
It is said by scientists that fishes and
mollusks living at a depth of more than
three miles under water have to bear a
pressure of several tons, the weight being
that of tho superincumbent brine, which
exerts its power from all sides. Tho
reason they are able to bear this tremen
dous weight is because they ha ve exceed
ingly loose tissues, which allows tho
water to flow through every interstice,
thus equalizing the weight. When tho
pressure is removed they dio almost in
stantly. There is a iiorso on James McCloud's
farm in South Dakota which has eight
feet ; otherwise it is perfectly formed in
every respect. Not until tho fetlock joint
is reached in tho descent from the shoul
der to tho foot is there any difference be
tween tho horso and any other. At tho
pastern joint, however, the branch be
gins, and two perfectly formed hoofs are
found on each of the four legs.
