SuiiiH Ovi r W'l.lcli Kcyptiau Children Tuz. IeI Their JituinH. T'rol al ly the oldest copy book foi In -tut I. sM.ns in arithmetic was re-ct i:tly vim anhed in Egypt. The pajiyrns, which was foimd in exeelhnr conilitioii, dates from the 1 1 rioel about 1700 P. C that is, n lout Jill years before the time ed Mo.-es, or almost b'.OOd vears ago. It roves Unit the Egyptians hail a thor ough knowledge if elementary mathe matics almost to the extent of our own. The pajjrus has a long heading, "UP ru iioii how to attain the knowledge ol all dark things," etc. Numerous exam ples show that their principal opera tions with entire rnits nni fractions wen; nmde by means of addition nnd multiplication. Subtractions and divi- nous were not known in their present ioim, out ceurect results were obtained nevertheless. Equations are also found in the nam- rns. Among tho examples given is this cue: Ten measure's of barley ere to be .11.

The doors as at present constructed unci ope rated are notoriously bad ana dangerous. They have been tho direct and known cause in tho loss of many lives nnd many good ships and are doubtless chargeable with many more ships em the list of "missing and unac counted for, " It is astonishing to the expert to see the general publio and even seafaring men so ready to accept the prevailing surjerstitiou about the safety of bulkhe;ads. The best possible bulkheads without equally good doors, of crattcl ou a safe system, are about as good as a chain with a link missing. The history cf marine disaster has taught us this if it has taught us any thing, and yet we go on crossing the Atlantic in liners of much vaunted safe ty anil bragging about invulnerable bat tleships, apparently with implicit con fidence in this bulkhead fetich. There should be as few doors as pos sible, and some very able experts con tend that there should be ueme. On the Other hand, most enntains mid rhiVf en. giueers say they must have doors. Man ifestly the only way out of the difficulty i.S to iet safe rlorirs. Kafelv nnprnfprP The number of watertight doors and hatches ou a first ( lass battleship is over 330, and there are nearly J5U0 valves and gates connect, d with ventilating, drain ing and flooding tho hull and involving the safety of tho ship. It will there fore be seen that tho systematic control and operatie.u of these devices is a mat ter of no mean importance. It tak. s about 110 men to look after these details alcne in resnr.nsn tn n ml. lisiou alarm under the present condi tions, and it is a matter of verv wvn doubt ou the parte.f those best informed as to whether the sut reme efforts of these 110 men can attend to doors, hatches and valves quickly enough to savo the ship.

A sharp Nantucket man is said to have got the belter of tbe great defender of the constitution in an amus ing way, however. Hu had a small case which was to be tried at Nantucket one week in June, and bo posted to Webster's office in great haste. It was n contest with a neighbor over a matter of considerable local interest, p.nd his pride as a litigant was at sake. He told Wnhcrpr tho nnrrienlnrs and nskcr what bo would charge to conduct the case. "Why." said Webster, "you can't afford to hire me. I should have to stn down there, he whole week, and my fe would be more than tho wholo caso is worth. I couldn't go down therefor less than $1,000. I could try eve ry case on the docket as well as cue. and it wouldn't cost any more, for one caso would take my time for tha entire week anyway." "All right, JUr. Webster, " quickly responded tho Nantucketer. "Hero's your $1,000. Vou come down, and I'll fix it so you can try every case." Webstrr was so amused over this proposition that ho kept his word. Ho spent tho entire week in Nantucket and appeared ou ono side or the other in every case that came op for hearing. Tho shrewd Nantucketer hired Daniel out to all his friends who were in liti gation nnd received in return about $1, 500, so that hu got Webster's services for nothing and made a good proht to boot.

Thero is not a straight street nor, in fact, a straight house in tho place. Every part of it has the; ap pearance of having suffered from the visitation of an earthouuku. Northwieh is the. center of the salt industry in Cheshire, England. Ou nearly all sides of the town are big salt works, with their engines pumping hundreds of thou sands of gallons of briuo every week. At a depth of some 200 or. ilUO feet are immeusu subterranean lakes of brine, and as tho contents of th,.u ,.,. ,,.,! and pumped away tho upper crust of earth is correspondingly weakened and the result is au occasional subsidence, lheso subsidences have a "pulling" ef fect on the nearest buildings, anil they aro drawn all ways, and give tho town au extremely eli,sipatod appearance. -New York Sun.
