THE WASSAIL BOWL.





(Measuring, Weight, and Packing Puzzles.)
One Christmas Eve three Weary Willies came into possession of what was

five-pint jug and another a three-pint jug, and the problem for them was

possible manipulations, every separate pouring from one vessel to
another, or down a man's throat, counting as a manipulation.
