LIONS AND CROWNS.





(Chessboard Problems)
The young lady in the illustration is confronted with a little
cutting-out difficulty in which the reader may be glad to assist her.
She wishes, for some reason that she has not communicated to me, to cut
that square piece of valuable material into four parts, all of exactly
the same size and shape, but it is important that every piece shall
contain a lion and a crown. As she insists that the cuts can only be
made along the lines dividing the squares, she is considerably perplexed
to find out how it is to be done. Can you show her the way? There is
only one possible method of cutting the stuff.
