(α) οὔκουν βούλεσθαι αὐτός γε ἐπιστάμενος τὰς Αθηναίων φύσεις ἐπ' αἰσχρᾷ τε αἰτίᾳ καὶ ἀδίκως ὑπ' Αθηναίων ἀπολέσθαι μᾶλλον ἢ ὑπὸ τῶν πολεμίων, εἰ δεῖ, κινδυνεύσας τοῦτο παθεῖν ίδια.

(1) καὶ ὁ ̓Αλκιβιάδης προσκείμενος ἐδίδασκε τὴν Δεκέλειαν τειχίζειν καὶ μὴ ἀνιέναι τὸν πόλεμον.

(ε) καίτοι οὐ πώποτε Αθηναίους διὰ τὰς στρατείας καὶ τὴν ὑπερόριον ἀσχολίαν ἐς οὐδὲν πρᾶγμα οὕτω μέγα ἐλθεῖν βουλεύσοντας ἐν ᾧ πεντακισχιλίους ξυνελθεῖν.

(α) Ἐν δὲ τούτῳ τά Ἴσθμια ἐγίγνετο, καὶ οἱ ̓Αθηναῖοι, ἐπηγγέλθησαν γάρ, ἐθεώρουν ἐς αὐτά, καὶ κατάδηλα μᾶλλον αὐτοῖς τὰ τῶν Χίων ἐφάνη.

1. Enunciate the proposition known as the parallelogram of forces.

If forces acting on a particle are represented in magnitude and direction by the sides AB, BC, CD, DE of a polygon ABCDE, shew that their resultant is represented by AE. 2. Having given the magnitudes of two component forces, and of their resultant, state and prove a formula giving the cosine of the angle between the components.

From this formula prove that the resultant cannot be greater than the sum of the components.

If the components be 140 and 171, and the resultant 221 pounds' weight, find the angle between the components.

3. A weight of 50 pounds suspended freely from a fixed point A is drawn aside from the vertical through an angle of 45° by a force acting horizontally. Determine this force and the reaction at A.

4. If two parallel forces act in the same direction along the opposite sides AB, DC of a parallelogram, and another force act along the diagonal BD, and if these three forces. be respectively proportional to AB, DC and BD; find the magnitude and position of a fourth force which will keep the parallelogram at rest.

5. Prove that the moments of any two forces about any point in the line of action of their resultant are equal.

6. Define the centre of gravity of a body. Find the centre of gravity of three equal masses placed with their centres of gravity (i.) in the same straight line, (ii.) not in the same straight line.

7. Three particles A, B, C, whose weights are proportional to 3, 2, 1 respectively, are placed so that AB 5 feet, BC=4, CA=2; find the distance of their centre of gravity from C. 8. A uniform beam, 18 feet long, rests in equilibrium upon a fulcrum two feet from one end, having a weight of 5 pounds at the further end and one of 110 pounds at the nearer end to the fulcrum. Find the weight of the beam. 9. What are the requisites for a good balance? Shew that a balance is (other things being equal) more sensitive as its own weight is smaller.

If the arms of a false balance be without weight, and one arm longer than the other by one-ninth part of the shorter arm, and if in using it the substance to be weighed is put as often into one scale as the other, shew that the seller loses five-ninths per cent. on his transactions.

Although Lord Randolph certainly had never made a study of finance, he was not, when he became Chancellor of the Exchequer, so ignorant of it as Charles Fox, if the story be true which reports him to have said that he never could understand what Consols were he knew they were things that went up and down in the City; and he was always pleased when they went down, because it so annoyed Pitt. Lord Randolph possessed many of the qualities which had always won for Mr. Gladstone so high a reputation as a departmental chief-indefatigable assiduity, that energy which Dr. Arnold said is of more value than even cleverness, a strong intellectual force, which, while it in no way interferred with his attention to
