Mathematicians have juggled with the mystic figures 3, 7 and 9 for ages, and now comes a foreign “professor” of the occult science to tell fortune by “the force in a simple numeral”— the 9. He reminds his victims that if they multiply any number, short of a decimal, by 9 the two figures of the product added together will make 9, Thus: Nine times 2 are 18, and 8 and 1 are 9; 9 times 3 are 27, and 7 and 2 are 9; 9 times 5 are 45, and 5 and 4 are 9; 9 times 6 are 54, and 4 and 5 are 9; 9 times 7 are 63, and 3 and 6 are 9; 9 times 8 are 72, and 2 and 7 are 9; 9 time 9 are 81, and 1 and 8 are 9. He might have added that any niimhop in tlio linnrl ro/io nf f hmiOfinfliJ multiplied by 9 will give a product the sum of whose digits is a multiple of 9. Take at random—9 times 545 are 4,905, the sum of which is 18, and 9 into 18 goes 2 times. Take 7,352 multiplied by 9 equals 66,168; the sum of the digits is 27; 9 into 27 goes 3 times. Oh, there is an immense amount of fun in 9. MADE THEM ALL LAUGH. Book Must Have Been Funny, but No One Knew What Is Was. It must have been a very funny story! The type looked funny from across the aisle of the car, the pic tures looked funny, and the young lady "who was reading it doubled up in fits of stifled laughter every few minutes. The young man in the seat with her could not help stealing a glance at the pages of the book which was evidently so funny, but whose cover was carefully doubled back out of sight, and soon he began to laugh as he unblushingly followed the story page after page, shaking with sup pressed merriment. The woman in the seat at right an gles became interested and looked over the girl’s shoulder. Presently her face broadened into a grin and soon she was convulsively shaking. The man in the seat across smiled at the scene. A boy a few seats down the aisle grinned sympathetically. A darky still further down showed all his white teeth. The contagion spread until the car was nearly on the verge of hysterics, when the fair reader got up to leave the train, yet no one but - the girl herself had any idea as to what the book wasi. VAST WEALTH OF THE SOUTH. In Natural Resources That Section !s Supreme. To its coal supply, more than twice as great as the combined coal area of Great Britain, Germany and Pen>> sylvinia; to its vast stores of oil ami natural gas as supplementary sourcei power of water powers for utilizatic 1 of power and heat and light the South adds at least 3,000,000 available horse power of water powers for utilization for electrical transmission, also for power, heat and light. The develop ment of this vast water power poten tiality will eventually employ $250, 000,000 to $300,000,000 and be equal in working capacity to 6,000,000 men. It will make possible construction of thousands of miles of interurban elec tric roads, it will furnish cheap power and light for mines and factories, and create, as in Switzerland, the highest forms of skilled mechanical work in the mountains of the South, where climatic conditions are unsurpassed by any other section of the world. In counting up the riches of the South al ways bear in mind its wealth of ever running streams, where nature fur nishes the power without price except for the cost of development.—Manu facturers’ Record.
