Ihe Organ Out or Tune.
The evening democratic organ has
begun its attacks upon tbcncw city coun
cil , thumping the democratic members
because they did not elect just such city
olliccrs as the non-partisan postmaster ,
who owns the organ , dictated. The organ
is not content with having democratic
patronage , but wants to govern the party
as well as take all the feed. It wants to
bo the father , the head of the household ,
and at the same time be the babe , the pet ,
and ttet all the care and stiuport. The
democratic members of the council acted
in fairness and wisdom. They re-elected
'Squiro Hurko as city clerk , a man who
has served most faithfully for
years , and who in polities has
been endorsed by the democrats
fully as often as by the republicans. For
chief of the lire department the old chief ,
also a democrat , was retained. John
Tomplcton has proved himself to bo an
cOlc'iout chief , as the condition of the de
partment , and the record of the year
shows. The other choices wore made
with equal fairness and justice , and it
seems a bit of pettish chilhshness on the
part of the editorial postmaster to get
mad at his democratic brethren for se
lecting some other democrats than the
ones whom he wanted. The citizens arc
satisfied with the action of the council ,
iml the democratic organ can hurt only
itself by indulging in the sulks.
The New Aldermen.
Alderman Lacy made a good maiden
speech in favor of having bettor side
walks along Fourth street , from Hroad
way south , some places on this busy
thoroughfare being in really dangerous
condition. Alderman Wells made a still
bettor speech. Ho favored not merely
the patching up of one spot after another ,
and the improvement of streets by picco-
mcalbut the inauguration of a systematic
series of street improvements through
out the city. Ho urged a survey the of
situation , so as to determine what sort of
improvements wore needed , and then
entering upon thcso improvements of the
streets , working toward the completion
of a general plan. Ho earnestly urged
that the tlmo had como when the city
must take hold of improvements with
enthusiasm. Alderman Metcalf seconded
these suggestions , and yesterday started
out with Alderman Lacy in a drive ubou t
the city to sco.where improvements could
be put to do the most good.

Ten Twelve Thirteen Three Hun
dred and Sixty.
Contemporary Review : The reason
why ten is a favorite perhaps the most
favorite number is obvious enough ,
namely , that wo have ten lingers. W hen
wo begin to count we almost of necessity
do so with our lingers ; if we have a largo
number of things to count , say a dock of
sheep , wo instinctively dividn them into
tens , or perhaps into scores ; if the num
ber of things bo yery large the collection
of tons arc naturally grouped airnin by
tens and so we have hundreds. A fur
ther grouping of hundreds leads to
thousands and so forth. Thus we get
the ordinary system of numeration and
there can bo uo manner of doubt that
man's ten lingers are the root of it. Wo
are told in treatises on arithmetic that
it would have been much more conveni
ent if wo had agreed to count by twelves
instcad.pf by tens ; and possibly this may
have been true. Hut , if it be , wo have
so much the more evidence , if evi
dence be needed , that the basis
of the system of counting was not determined -
mined by theoretical considerations , but
by the simple elementary fact of the
number of human digits being ten not
twelve. Nevertheless twelve has its turn
as a favorite number ; we often count by
dozens and the reason probably is that
tholve admits of being quartered as well
as halved , which , in many cases , is an ad
vantage. Take the case of wine : A
dozen bottles is n convenient quantity to
take as a standard , because a customer
can order half the standard number , or ,
if ho needs a small quantity , the quarter
of the same ; in fact , twelve admits admits
of doing divided not only by two and
four , but also by three and six , which , for
many purposes , give it a great advantage
over ten , which can bo divided only by
two and live , the latter division being
rarely of any ute : hence the great divisi
bility of twelve is sutlielont to mark it as
a favorite number ; but in the most nota
ble instance of its usenamely , as making
the number of months in the year , we
need some further explanation. The real
month that ia the number of days be
tween two successive full moons
may bo taken as measured by twenty-
eight days. Thirteen times twenty-
eight makes 374 , or as nearly as may bo
one year. Consequently it would nave
been much more nearly true to say that
thirteen months make a year than twelve.
The explanation is to bo found. I con
ceive , in the extremely awkward charac
ter of the number thirteen ; it is what is
called by mathmcticians a prime number
that is to say , it admits of no division
of any kind ; had there been thirteen
months in the year the half your and the
quarter alike could not have been reck
oned by months , and consequently
twelve , which , as already explained , is
ono of the most convenient of numbers
in the matter of divisibility , was encour
aged and permitted to usurp the place
which in all 'strictness belonged to its
noxfdoor neighbor. There is a some
what parallel case with regard to the di
vision of the circle into 800 degrees. The
ancient Chinese mathematicians divided
the circle into a07 } days , which number
though not exact , Is very near the truth.
But this division of the circle is prac
tically intolerable ; it would throw mathe
maticians into despair ; consequently the
numbei 630 , which admits of being di
vided by four , oy sixty , by thirty and bv
other numbers , usurped the place which
the Chinese righteously assigned to the
awkward number which nature sug
