Tub Governor's Speech.
Get, Grover sauted a calm, spirit
leas spout, at tlia Court House iu
this dty, on Thursday night, to 8
fair audience- the major portion
of his talk on the occasion has lieen
spread before the public by him so
oflen during the paffc twenty-three
years, that in gettin it off Thurs
day evening Tie was not compelled
to refer to his "eld notes" very
frequently, but niesied along much
the same ss a school boy who had
pretty thoroughly mastered his Rttle
piece. It was simply a tribute from
Grover to the great and good and
honest and patriotic and incorrupt
ibfe Governor Grover "yonr pres
ent Executive.'' In winding up his
remarks, he said he had doubtless
made some mistakes, and signed bills
he should have vetoed ; hot if he
should be so fortunate as to be re
elected, ho would pursue the same
line offofici for the future i.at ho
had in the past which was oheer-
ing news to proprietors of litigant
organs, if to no one else. We are
sorry that our limited space forbids
farther notice of this sketch of the
fife of Grover, delivered by Grover;
but we can assure those who were
not present, that Grover when laud
ing the "present Executive" (the
entire burden of his song), was very
pathetic it was indeed a melting
time, with the Gov. Indeed so pa
thetic did he become that Mart V.
and other lights of the party were
compelled to give vent to their pent
up feelings by going out, reason
ably early in the evening, and. re
maining out ! The Democratic
Stewards having left tbe room be
fore the close of the services, the
bat was not passed. Gould this
have been otherwise, bow some of
those old Democratic seeds present
would have shelled out !
Scio- The delegates elect from
Scio to the Republican County Con
vention are Jesse Irvine, M. Bailey
and H. H. Hewitt.
ROMANCB OF ABITHMimC.
The most romantic of all numbers
is the figure nine, because it can't
be multiplied away 01 got rid ot
anyhow. Whatever you do it is
sure to turn up again as was the
body of Eugene Aram's victim..
One remarkable property of this
figure (said to have been first dis
covered by Ml Green, who died
in 1794,) is that all through tbe
multiplication table tbe product of
nine comes to nine. Multiply by
what you like, and it gives the
same result Regin with twice
nine, IK; add the digits together,,
and 1 and 8 makes 9. Three
times nine are 27 ; and 2 and 7 are
& So it goes on, up to eleven
times nine, which gives 99. Very
good -T add the digits ; 9 and 9 are
I8 aod 8 and 1 are 9. Going on
to any extent it is impossible to get
rid ot the figure nine. Take a
couple of instances at random.
Three hundred and thirty-nine
times nine are 3,061 ; add up the
figures and they are- nine.. Five
thousand and seventy-one times
nine are 45,689 ; tbe sum of' these
digits is 27; 2 and T ana 9l.
A movement is maturing at
