## THE BANNER PUZZLE.

(

Patchwork Puzzles)

A Lady had a square piece of bunting with two lions on it, of which the

illustration is an exactly reproduced reduction. She wished to cut the

stuff into pieces that would fit together and form two square banners

with a lion on each banner. She discovered that this could be done in as

few as four pieces. How did she manage it? Of course, to cut the British

Lion would be an unpardonable offence, so you must be careful that no

cut passes through any portion of either of them. Ladies are informed

that no allowance whatever has to be made for "turnings," and no part of

the material may be wasted. It is quite a simple little dissection

puzzle if rightly attacked. Remember that the banners have to be perfect

squares, though they need not be both of the same size.
