REUBEN FIELD . [Newspaper Article] — True Republican — 15 January 1870

REUBEN FIELD . The Mathematical Prodigy at Mliaourl . From the St . Louie Bepublican . At or near Warrensburg , Johnson Co ., in this state , resides a poor widow woman , who has a son , Reuben Field , a mere boy , untutored , and seemingly incapable of literary culture , who yet possesses most remarkable powers of mental calculation . As evidence of this , among other evidences that might be cited , a gentleman of St . Louis , who had heard of his possessing this faculty , sent him the following figures , viz : 145 , 145 , 135 , 145 , asking him to square this number mentally , that ia multiply the number by itself , and send him tho result , with the time taken to perform it , scarcely believing , however , notwithstanding the extraordinary accounts related of him , that he would be capable of the task . In HUB , however , he was mistaken , as were others to whom the proposition was named . A letter has been received by the gentleman named , from a highly respeotable citizen of Wa...

¦ -- The Weather — Prognostications for -.-- X 9 < U . The belief is entertained by ceitain meteorologists that the weather in all of its general and many of its particular phases duplicates itself every hundred years . ¦¦ In other works , as was the weather in 1770 so will it be in 1870 . From caieful records that have been kept for many centuries , a celebrated meteorologist in Germany has prepared the following statement of the prominent features expected to occur during the coming year : • The so-called regent of the year is the sun .

HOW I CONQUERED THE PIRATE [Newspaper Article] — True Republican — 15 January 1870

HOW I CONQUERED THE PIRATE BY HABBT . BOUNOBBOKE . . Let s have a sea-fight ! .: ;« Very well—lets ! ¦ There ; that was all the challenge , which ¦ resulted in one of the most destructive contests in the annals of naval warfare : that is within the limits of our duck-pond . Cousin Charlie and I had grown tired of rigging , painting , altering , and launching our boats . Evan racing had lost its charms ( at least for me , as my craft always came in last ) She was a handsome boat , but a poor sailer .
