# 1889

This number is a prime.

G.C. Chrystal's *Algebra* (Edinburgh, 1889, vol. ii,
p. 159) gives the following amusing fallacy:

[Caldwell]

The smallest prime such that it and the next 4 primes (1889, 1901, 1907, 1913, 1931) are all equal to 5 (mod 6). [Post]

The year the Wall Street Journal was first published. [Green]

The smallest prime formed by using all the digits which can be digital root of cubic numbers. [Gupta]
