D A Y  S
      T  O O
--------------
S H O R T
 
From the above S = 1, and H = 0. and D = 9

   9  A  Y  1
       T  O  O
--------------
1 0 O  R  T

Now O can be 2 to 7. So T takes values from 3 to 8. Also A + T is Two digit number.
Now take O = 2;

   9  A  Y  1
       3  2  2
--------------
1 0 2  R  3

From this A is 9 or 8. 9 is not possible. If A is 8, then Y + 2 should be a two digit number and Y can take 8 or 9, which is not possible.

With this reasoning, we take O = 5

   9  A  Y  1
       6  5  5
--------------
1 0 5  R  6

By trial and error, Y = 7 and A = 8

   9  8  7  1
       6  5  5
--------------
1 0 5  2  6
