THE VILLAGE SIMPLETON.





(Money Puzzles)
A facetious individual who was taking a long walk in the country came
upon a yokel sitting on a stile. As the gentleman was not quite sure of
his road, he thought he would make inquiries of the local inhabitant;
but at the first glance he jumped too hastily to the conclusion that he
had dropped on the village idiot. He therefore decided to test the
fellow's intelligence by first putting to him the simplest question he
could think of, which was, "What day of the week is this, my good man?"
The following is the smart answer that he received:--
"When the day after to-morrow is yesterday, to-day will be as far from
Sunday as to-day was from Sunday when the day before yesterday was
to-morrow."
Can the reader say what day of the week it was? It is pretty evident
that the countryman was not such a fool as he looked. The gentleman went
on his road a puzzled but a wiser man.
