## THE TRUSSES OF HAY.

(

Money Puzzles)

Farmer Tompkins had five trusses of hay, which he told his man Hodge to

weigh before delivering them to a customer. The stupid fellow weighed

them two at a time in all possible ways, and informed his master that

the weights in pounds were 110, 112, 113, 114, 115, 116, 117, 118, 120,

and 121. Now, how was Farmer Tompkins to find out from these figures how

much every one of the five trusses weighed singly? The reader may at

first think that he ought to be told "which pair is which pair," or

something of that sort, but it is quite unnecessary. Can you give the

five correct weights?
