THE BETSY ROSS PUZZLE.





(Various Dissection Puzzles)

puzzle that is attributed to a certain Betsy Ross, of Philadelphia, who

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.
