It does Seem as if the people had
been waiting to get a chance at the

tackled enthusiastically, and It haa been
answered vigorously.
One man, who sent in a solution to
' , the problem, urged the Pussle Editor to

Here's Skldoo for Bvsryaody. '
A coin eollector had In accumula
tion of pennies. He told hie eon he
would make him a present of the
entire lot If he would put them In
boxes, the same number In each box. ,
There was an odd number of pennies
so that if he put -an equal number in
- each of two boxes there would be one
penny left over; In a like manner he
figured on I, 4, B, . 7, 8, t, 10, 11. It,
13, 14, IS, 1. 17, , 19. 10, M end XI

- equal number In each box there would
be one (only one) penny left over. The
eon gave It up and told hla father he
thought It impossible to perform the
feat Hla father replledr"8KnXKJS
for you." The son then put the entire
lot of pennies In S3 boxes the same
number In each box. How many pennies
'were there T '
. To make the problem plain: The eft
tire number of pennies was a number,
which If divided by any number from
to 23 Inclusive there will be a re
mainder of one (only one) and If di
vided by 23 there will remainder.
Don't think because you start a bit
late in trying to solve it that your
.chance of winning the prise Is not as
good : as that of anybody else. Tbe
prise are given for the correct and
TiEST solution; as there can be but one
correct solution, "the beat" gives every
one a aha nee. The first prise Is 1,000
bright new pennies; the writers of 23
good solutions will get beautiful "23"

The Indus In India Is crossed in some

The natives' ingenuity in making these
bridges with no material but twisted
twigs, yet strong enough to hold the

their loads, and long enough to be
swung from cliff to cliff across the greet
