Curiosities of Figures.
From the Boston Pitot.
A problem, thnt at, a glance seems
enough to tempt many n school-boy
to spend a portion of his vacation in
an endeavor to solve it, appeared re
cently in a Maine journal, and is as
follows: Take the number 15. Mul
tiply it by itself and you have 225.
Now multiply 225 by itself, and then
multiply that product by itself, and
so on until fifteen products have been
multiplied by themselves in turn.
The question aroused considerable
interest among lawyers in Portland,
and their best mathematician, after
struggling with the problem long
enough to see how much labor was
entailed in the solution, made the
following discouraging report upon it:
“The final product called for contains
38,539 figures, the first of which are
1,442. Allowing three figures to an
inch, the answer would be over 1,070
feet long. To perform the operation
would require about 500,000,000
figures. If they can be made at the
rate of a minute, a person working
ten hours a day for 300 days each
year would be twenty eight years
about it. If, in multiplying, he
should make a row of ciphers, as he
does in other figures, the number of
figures would be more than 023,939,-
228. This would be the precise num
ber of figures used if the product of
the left hand figure in each multipli
cand, by each figure of the multipli
er was always a single figure ; but,
as it is most frequently and yet not
always, two figures, the method em
ployed to obtain the foregoing result
cannot be accurately applied. Assum
ing that the cipher is used on an
average once in ten times, 485,000,-
000,000 approximates the actual num

* Neglected Wife—“Why don’t you
go to work ? ”
Husband (a ne’er-do-well)—“I
ain’t got no tools.”
Neglected wife—“Deacon Smith
oflered you five dollars to fix his fence,
and you have a saw, and a plane, and
a hammer and nails. What more do
you wan’t ?”
Husband—“The saw ain’t no good,
and I ain’t got no file to sharpen it.
Ole Smith can fix his fence hisself.”
Same Husband (ten years later)—
“Hi! Say, wife, I’ve escaped from
the penitentiary. Gimme some other
clothes, so I kin light out agin.”
Wife—“My, my! How did you
get out ?”
Husband—“I dug forty feet under
ground, with a two tilled fork, and
then cut my way through two feet of
stone wall and teu inches of boiler
iron with a saw made out of a dinner
plate.”—New York Weekly.

A night or two ago a Beacon street
matron bad occasion to reprove her
little boy—aged 04 years—for some
unusually mischievous nonsense. “I
am afraid,” she said, “that you will
not go to heaven.” “I’m sorry,” said
the small criminal, “but I've been to
the circus and a party this week, don’t
you know, and of course one cau’t
take in everything.” For a long time
this youthful thinker has been putting
pennies into a savings bank for the
little negro children of the G'ougro
basin. And the other day his moth
er caught him in the act of painting
his baby sister black all over with
ladies’shoe polish. He was just put
ting on the final touches when the
mater familias entered. Said he:
“Mamma, we have given so much
money to the black people that I
thought we might as well keep it in
the family. >So I have fixed up the
kid to suit. • Put a nickel io the slot
and hear it squall."—Boston Trans
