MoKinley ia the first choice in most
of the states aud aeoonu cnoioe iu

Sept. 1, 1804. Signs of his wonder
ful power appeared at a very tender
age. The discovery was accidentally
made by tiis father, who waa much sur
prised one day to hear him repeating
the product of several numbers, al
though at the time he had received no
other instruction than such as could be
obtained at a small country school
whose curriculum did not include writ
ing or cyphering. He thereupon proposed
a variety of arithmetical questions to
his sou, all of which the child answered
with remarkable facility and correct
ness. At the age of 8 the boy was able
to solve most difficult questions by the
mere operation of his mind. Many per
sons of the first eminence for their
kuowledgo iu mathematics made a point
of seeing and conversing with him, and
they proposed to bim a great variety of
questions to test his marvelous powers.
Among them were the following:
