THE SCIENTIFIC SKATER.





(The Guarded Chessboard)
It will be seen that this skater has marked on the ice sixty-four points
or stars, and he proposes to start _from his present position_ near the
corner and enter every one of the points in fourteen straight lines. How
will he do it? Of course there is no objection to his passing over any
point more than once, but his last straight stroke must bring him back
to the position from which he started.
It is merely a matter of taking your pencil and starting from the spot
on which the skater's foot is at present resting, and striking out all
the stars in fourteen continuous straight lines, returning to the point
from which you set out.
