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.
