Arithmetical prodigies, often spoken
of as “lightning calculators," have an
unusual capacity for combining num-
bers, The wonderful feats of these
prodigies have been pronounced genu-
ine by competent Judges, although
their psychological peculiarities, how-
ever, seem characteristic of most of
the known cases; an extraordinary
memory for numerical combinations,
and unusual methods for grouping
numbers. That their ability is not
entirely the result of special training
is‘attested by the early age at which
the power is manifested. Thus, at
the age of li. T. H. Halford computed
mentally the number (617,760) of bar-
ley-corns in 1,040 rods, and could ex-
tract the cube roots of numbers of 9
and 10 figures, liuxton solved the
problem, to find the product of doub-
ling a farthing 199 limes, the result,
expressed iu pounds, being a number
of 39 figures. Zerah Colburn, at 9
yegrs of age, gave at sight the fa
of .304,907,297, and in 30 seconds
found mentally the number of hours
In 1,811 years. Raising 991 to the
fifth power in thirteen operations, and
giving the product, of any pair of two-
figure numbers in 1 T2 seconds, are
feats accomplished by Arthur (Irifllth.
who also memorized the squares of all
numbers up to 130 and the cubes up

Birds That Blush.
An observer finds that some birds
blush. He writes: "We have a very
line specimen of the blue and yellow
macaw which displays this trait—not
often, for he is remarkably good-tem-

of the particular room that the fatal

years with unspeakable cruelty. The
