You may go up or go down; you may move backward or forward, but you must never go in a slanting or diagonal direction—that is, you are not allowed to pass from letter to let ter through the coruer of a square, but al ways through one of the sides. The object is to find the first letter and then unravel the whole. The last word, denoted by the star, must be supplied. How to Tell a Person's Age. Axnong many ingenious schemes for telling THE FLORIDA AGRICULTURIS f. a person's age'this is one or the easiest and best. Let the person whose age is to be dis covered do the figuring. Suppose, for ex ample, if it is a girl, that her age is 15 and that she was born in August. Let her put down the number of the mouth in which she was born and proceed as follows: Number of month. 8 Multiply by 2 11l Add 5 21 Multiply by 50 1,050 Then add her age, 15 1,005 Then subtract 305, leaving TOO Then add 115 815 She then announces the result, 815, where upon she may be informed that her age is 15 and August, or the eighth mouth, is the month of her birth. The two figures to the right in the result will always indicate the age and the remain ing figure or figures the mouth the birthday comes in. This rule never fails for all ages up to 100. For ages under 10 a cipher will appear pre fixed in the result, but no accouut is taken of this. Timely Information. What would we do without poets? The latest piece of information in verse begins: “The golden rod is yellow.” How horrible it would have been had the public been obliged to remain under the hallucination that the golden rod was scarlet.
