THE CHESSBOARD SENTENCE.





(Chessboard Problems)
I once set myself the amusing task of so dissecting an ordinary
chessboard into letters of the alphabet that they would form a complete
sentence. It will be seen from the illustration that the pieces
assembled give the sentence, "CUT THY LIFE," with the stops between. The
ideal sentence would, of course, have only one full stop, but that I did
not succeed in obtaining.
The sentence is an appeal to the transgressor to cut himself adrift from
the evil life he is living. Can you fit these pieces together to form a
perfect chessboard?
