that the sixth day of the week is
fraught with ill omen‘ for those en-
guged in financial operations.
The original “Black Friday” occurred
Dec. 8, 1745, in London.’ ‘On that date

to cut the huge mountain mass into
the form of a statue of Alexander
which should hold a city in the left
hand and in the right a basin to re-
ceive all the waters that flowed from
the mountain.
