MRS. TIMPKINS'S AGE.





(Money Puzzles)
Edwin: "Do you know, when the Timpkinses married eighteen years ago
Timpkins was three times as old as his wife, and to-day he is just twice
as old as she?"
Angelina: "Then how old was Mrs. Timpkins on the wedding day?"
Can you answer Angelina's question?
44--A CENSUS PUZZLE.
Mr. and Mrs. Jorkins have fifteen children, all born at intervals of one
year and a half. Miss Ada Jorkins, the eldest, had an objection to state
her age to the census man, but she admitted that she was just seven
times older than little Johnnie, the youngest of all. What was Ada's
age? Do not too hastily assume that you have solved this little poser.
You may find that you have made a bad blunder!
