THE QUEEN'S JOURNEY.
(The Guarded Chessboard
Place the queen on her own square, as shown in the illustration, and
then try to discover the greatest distance that she can travel over the
board in five queen's moves without passing over any square a second
time. Mark the queen's path on the board, and note carefully also that
she must never cross her own track. It seems simple enough, but the
reader may find that he has tripped.
