## SIR EDWYN DE TUDOR.

(

Money Puzzles)

In the illustration we have a sketch of Sir Edwyn de Tudor going to

rescue his lady-love, the fair Isabella, who was held a captive by a

neighbouring wicked baron. Sir Edwyn calculated that if he rode fifteen

miles an hour he would arrive at the castle an hour too soon, while if

he rode ten miles an hour he would get there just an hour too late. Now,

it was of the first importance that he should arrive at the exact time

appointed, in order that the rescue that he had planned should be a

lady would be taking her afternoon tea. The puzzle is to discover
