THE LEAP-YEAR LADIES.





(Money Puzzles)
Last leap-year ladies lost no time in exercising the privilege of making
proposals of marriage. If the figures that reached me from an occult
source are correct, the following represents the state of affairs in
this country.
A number of women proposed once each, of whom one-eighth were widows. In
consequence, a number of men were to be married of whom one-eleventh
were widowers. Of the proposals made to widowers, one-fifth were
declined. All the widows were accepted. Thirty-five forty-fourths of the
widows married bachelors. One thousand two hundred and twenty-one
spinsters were declined by bachelors. The number of spinsters accepted
by bachelors was seven times the number of widows accepted by bachelors.
Those are all the particulars that I was able to obtain. Now, how many
women proposed?
