The reason of this is, the rows with treble in, say fourth's place, being produced from those with treble in third's, as the rows with treble in third's 7-8 down. 5-6 down. 3-4 down. 1-2 down. follow each other--that is, if one is reproduced in the contrary place the other will also be reproduced there--the rows with treble in fourth's will likewise be reproduced at the same time. On account of this, it is only necessary to find out what lead-ends will reproduce the same rows, in the contrary places, with the treble in first's, third's, fifth's, and seventh's places; these will be the leadends, which will also produce similar results in second's, fourth's, sixth's, and eighth's places. As an example of this, observe the rows with treble in 3-4 going up, and you will see, as stated above, that A may come at C, and B at D: prick A at C as it would come from the lead-end 14236587, you will then have the rows when the treble is in 3-4 coming down in this lead, thus:--You can now see, that when A comes at C, B also comes at D, and that both these rows are attended by the rows in fourth's place, from 12345678 when the treble is going up, which I have stated are dependent on those in third's place, and thus the whole of the four rows, with treble in 3-4 "going up from 12345678, are reproduced from this lead-end (14236587), when the treble is coming down. Although this explanation may not be very easy to follow, yet the only result, if the whole of the places were investigated, would be, that it would be found the lead-ends which would reproduce the rows in, say fourth's place, would be the same as those that reproduce them in third's place.
