Some of these calculations are well known. and hlire is the latest of the kinl. \Vhatt is wanted to determine the date when the imperial rule shall end in France 7 Let us go back, then, to the reign of Louis Phillippe for facts which may help us in the calculation. Louis 'Phillippe ascended the throne in 1830. It we take that as a fixed point, we shall fiud that by adding to it certain num bers. the result will give the year 1848 when the reign of the Orleans family came to an end. Thus, Louis Phillippe was borne in 1773. The units of this date added together make 18 : and if you add 18 to 1830 it brings us precisely to 1848. Again, his Queen was born in 1782. The units of this date added to gether make 18 ; and 18 added to 1830 make 1848. Or once again, the King and Queen were married in 1809. The units of this year also make 18, and if we treat this amount as before, it will yield the same result. Now, let us pro ceed in the same fashion to deal with the Empire. It was proclaimed in 18.52. .he Esmrperor was born in 18.(. If we add the unlits of the lat.t.r date togetite and add the result tothA date ot 1."i2, we obtain the figures 1869. Again, the Empress was born in 1826. Proceed as before, and the result is 1869. The Emperor and Empress were marmed in 1852. Still repcat the calculation, and the result is 1869. Last of all, take the date of the Revolution-1848. Manip ulate its figures in the same fashion as the others-the sum total is 21; and this added to 1848 makes 1869. Is it not perfectly clear, therefore, that the Empire will come to an end in 1869 ? The Salt Lake Telegraph in an oth erwise eulogistic notice of the Overiand Monthly, says: "We cannot admire the taste that prefers the crudity, inelegance and general ,ugliness of the type of a hundred years ago, to the really neat and beautiful type of modern design."
