THE BETSY ROSS PUZZLE.





(Various Dissection Puzzles)
A correspondent asked me to supply him with the solution to an old
puzzle that is attributed to a certain Betsy Ross, of Philadelphia, who
showed it to George Washington. It consists in so folding a piece of
paper that with one clip of the scissors a five-pointed star of Freedom
may be produced. Whether the story of the puzzle's origin is a true one
or not I cannot say, but I have a print of the old house in Philadelphia
where the lady is said to have lived, and I believe it still stands
there. But my readers will doubtless be interested in the little poser.
Take a circular piece of paper and so fold it that with one cut of the
scissors you can produce a perfect five-pointed star.
