I-iONDON, Dec. fi.—Lord Randolpli
Churchill's-ectlon in the houge of com
mon? this evening with regard to
what is known as the Suuklzn movement,
created quite a sensation and opened tho
eyes of the government to the certainty
that it will co hard with them if they
attempt any operations in the Soudan.
Keceiving a flippant reply t-o his very nat
ural and extremely pertinent questions
from-Mr. Stanhope, secretary of war,
Ixrd Churchill suddenly moved an ad'
journment, ID ordor, as lie Btated, to en
ablo discussion as to the propriety of
sending to 3uakim a small British force
to play Becond fiddle to the Egyptians.
The motion was wholly unexpected, and
Lord Churchill's action plainly indicates
that even the Tories revolt against
the government's recent tactics in Egypt.

MAGIC IN HlfllliKItS.
8UPERSTITVONS FOUNDED ON THE
NINE DIGITS.
'Therp's Lack In Odd Numbers/* 8ays ran
Old Saw—Event* Quoted Proofs of the
InOucnce of Numbers on Everything in
Very many superstitious and curious
ideas have been and aro still connected
with numbers. Great hopes have been
founded upon certain combinations of
numbers in lotteries, in horoscopes, or in
predictions regarding important events.
Important undertakings have awaited
favorable dates for their inception, ar.d
tho lives of more than one leader of men
have been more or less influenced by a
regard for certain numerical combina
tions, supposed to have a dominating
power in shaping a successful career.
There have been superstitious notions
connected with nearly every ono of the
nine digital numbers.
The number 1 was held to bo sacred
because it represented tho unity of the
Godhead. This number is esteemed as
very lucky by the Javanese, whoallot but
ono day to each of the several operations
of husbandry, leaving that portion of tho
crop that could not bo gathered in ono
day.
B/D REPUTATION OF NUMBER 2.
The second digit acquired an especially
evil reputation among the early Chris
tians, because tho second day liell was
created, along with heaven and earth.
The Cabalists said it typified tho hypo
static union of Christ. It Seems to liavo
been a number unlucky in English dynas
ties. Harold II was slain in battle
William II and Edward II were mur
dered Ethelred II, Richard Hand James
II were forced to abdicate and Henry II,
Charles II and George II wcro unfortu
nate in many ways. The number seems
to have been an unlucky ono to the sover
eigns of other European countries. The
Charles lis of France, of Navarre, of
Spain, of Anjou and of Savoy passed or
ended their reigns unhappily.
The number 8 lias an abundance of su
perstitions connected with it. It Vvas tho
perfect number of the Pythagoreans,
who said it represented the beginning,
middle and cna. A greater importance
was given to the number because it rep
resented tho trinity, not only in the
Christian religion, but fa many others.
There was but little mystery attached
to tho numbers 4 and
5.
In folk lore the
four leaved clover is especially lucky.
The four of clubs is an unlucky card,
and it is named tho devil's four post bed.
The Cabalists asserted that th»number
6 was potent in mvstical properties. Tho
world was created in six days, tho Jew
ish servant served six years, Job en
dured six tribulations, and hence tho fig
ure typified labor and suffering. The
rabbis asserted that tho letter vau, which
represents six, was stamped on the
manna, to remind the Jows tiiat it fell
on six days only.
The number 0 was an unlucky one at
Rome. Tarquinius Sextus was a brutal
tyrant, the church was divided under
Urban tho Sixth and Alexander the
Sixth was a monster of iniquity.
SEVEN AN IMPORTANT NUMBER.
The number 7 has been invested with
more mystery than all the other digits
together, and to it wero ascribed magic
and mystical qualities possessed by no
other number. Several teamed treatises
have been written on this number, and
septenary combinations have been
Bought everywhere. In an old writer of
two centuries ago wo may read why, in
his opinion, tho number is peculiarly ex
cellent. First, he saysi "It is neither be
gotten «or begets secondly, "it is a
harmonic number and contains all tho
harmonies thirdly, "it is a theological
number, consisting of perfection
fourthly, it is composed of perfect num
bers, and "participates of their virtues."
He may find better reasons for the im
portance attached to this number. Much
of it is doubtless duo to its prominence
in the Bible. The seven days of creation
led to a septenary division of time to all
ages. Several of the Jewish feasts lasted
seven days. Elislia sent Naaman to wash
in the Jordan seven times, and Elijah
sent his servant from Mount Caraiel
seven times to look for rain. For seven
days seven priests with seven trumpets
invested Jericho, and on the seventh day
they encompassed it seven times. There
were seven virtues, and seven mortal
6ins.
The ancients not only noted the im
portance of seven as an astronomical
period, but also connected with the seven
planets tho seven metals then known.
Tho soul of man was anciently supposed
to be controlled by this double septenary
combination. It was also an ancient be
lief that a change in the body of man
occurs every seventh year.
The Koran enumerates seven heavens.
There was an old Russian superstition to
the same effect, and a ladder of seven
rounds was placed in the grave to enable
the defunct to ascend theso soven grades.
WHAT YOU MUST DO ON THE NINTH.
Says an old writer:: "Augustus Caesar,
as Gellius saith, was glad, and hoped that
ho was to live long, because he had
passed his 03 years. For oldemen seldom
passe that year but they are in danger of
their lives. Two years, tho seventh and
tho ninth, commonly bring great changes
to a man's life, and great dangers there
fore 03, that containeth both theso num
bers multiplied together, containeth un
known dangers."
Leases, now granted for a period of
ninety-nine years, wero formerly given
for 990.
There wero nine earths, according to
mediaeval cosmogony nine heavens, nine
rivers of hell, nine orders of angels, etc.
The number being perfection, since it
represented divinity, was often used to
signify a great quantity, as in the phrases:
"A nine days' wonder," "A cat has ninn
lives," "Nino tailors make a man," etc.
In Scotland, a distempered cow was
cured by washing her in nino surfs. To
see nine magpies is extremely unlucky.
Nino knots made in a black woolen thread
served as a charm in the case
of a sprain.
When a servant maid finds nino green
Ieas in ono pod she lays it on tho window
sill, and the first man that enters will be
her "beau." Nine grains of wheat, laid

Japancso Courts.
A Japanese court room even now is
far different from an American ono.
Imagine a room half of which is mado
up of a wooden rostrum three feet high,
and tho other half floored with stone.
Upon this rostrum the judges sit behind
iittlo tables which are covered with green
cloth. In the common pleas and the
preliminary courts there are three of
tbe3o tables. The judge sits at the center
ono. At his right is the prosecutor or
prosecuting attorney, and p.t his left is the
clerk. All three have little paint boxes
beforo them with brushes for writing
in black the Japanese characters, and no
stenographers are used. Close up to tliis
rostrum, in the pit below, there is a low
railing upon which tho prisoner places
his hands and looks up at the judge as ho
is tried. Tliero are no seats for tlio law
yers, and lawyers aro not allowed inside
tho bar. At the extremo back of the
room ono or two benches stand for the
accommodation of visitors, and upon
these sometimes sit prisoners waiting to
bo tried.
