We do not know but the solutions will je puzzles enough for most of our readers, but the mathematically inclined will be interested in them. The prob- em was as follows: "A Kentucky farmer and his wife owned a pig and they wanted to weigh t. The man weighed 185 and the woman 100 pounds. They put a board across the fence so that when they sat down upon the ends it exactly bal- inced. Then they exchanged places, iis wife taking the pig in her lap, just 3alancitig the board again. What was the weight of the hogV" The first answer is Prof. Lilly's: "The above question is a practical application of tho lever of the first class. The board is the lever, the [ence is tho fulcum, and for convenience take one hundred pounds, the weight of the woman, for the power, and 135 pounds, the weight of the man, for the weight. Therefore, the distance from the woman to the fence is called the power distance, and the distance from tho man to the fence is the weight distance. It is a known fact of physics that tho power multiplied by the power distance equals the weight multiplied by tho weight distance; hence, the ratio of the power to tho weight must equal the ratio of the weight distance to the power distance. The ratio of the power to the weight, or 100 is to 135, as 20 is to 27, which ia therefore the ratio of tho weight dis tance to the power distance. Stated in a proportion it is to 135 pounds as 20 is to 27. From the second condition to exactly balance, they exchange places and add tho weight of the hog to the weight of the woman. Then the proportion is, 135 is to 100 plus the weight of the hog as 20 is to 27. Since, in any proportion, the product of the means equals the product of tho extremes, wo have 20x100 pounds, plus the weight oi the hog, equals 27x135 pounds, or 2000 pounds plus 20 times the weight of the hog equals 3G45 pounds. Therefore, 2C times the weight of tho hog equals 3645 pounds, less 2000 pounds equals 1645 pounds, and the pig weighs 1-20 ol 1045 pounds, or 82.25 pounds." The second solution is A. F. Bacon's "Tho problem comes under the head of levers, hence we can use the formula given in physics: Power, weight weight distance, power distance. I: both man and woman had weighed 10( pounds, tho fulcum would be placed in the center of the lever, and length of lever equals 200 parts, of which both would occupy 100. But they both weigh 235 pounds, therefore the lever equals 235 parts, and the man occupies 135 and the woman 100; reduce 135-235 equals 27-47 and 100-235 equals 20-47 Now reverse and let x equal the weigh of the pig, You then have, by the above formula, 135 pounds : 100 pounds plus x :: 20-47 :27-47. Clear of fractions and you have 6345 : 4700 plus 47 x :: 20 27. This is 94000 plus 940 x equals 171315; 940 x equals 171315 less 94000 equals 82i pounds, the weight of the pig." SOMETHING TO tflGTJRE ON. Prof. Lilly suggests the following as a good problem for all who are rnathe matically inclined: "Smith, Brown and Hinchon, with their sons, Adam, Paul and Will each own a tract of land in square form. Mr Smith's tract is 23 rods longer on i side than Paul's and Mr. Brown's is 1 I'ods longer on a side than Adam's Each man has 63 square rods rnon than his son. Find the full names o the boys; that is whether Adam Smith Adam Brown or Adam Hinchon. all of the hoodlums in Algona were eated on the front rows of seats loaded with torpedoes, sunflowers, paper bags and other artillery with which they ucceeded In making the night truly hideous. We hope that Algona will not spend any valuable time or money ,o secure a similar treat for the next Bounty convention. PUT US OFF AT BUFFALO.

Mr. Wadsworth has consented to tell our readers something of the meeting and excursion. The Facts About Those Cups. To the Editor: I see by an article in THE UPPER DES MOINES of the 18th, taken from the Fort Dodge Messenger, that the Fourth regiment trophies have become sadly mixed. The facts are simply these: In 1891 Company H of Sioux City put up a cup for competition in the Sixth regiment, to be known as the H trophy, the competition being as follows: The cup to become the property of the team winning it three times in succession. The competition that year was held during camp at WebsterCity and the cup was won by Company D team of Hampton. During the next year, 1892, the new organization took place, Col. Foster being elected colonel and the old Sixth regiment being made the Fourth, the next camp to bo held at Sioux City. The old trophy was to be shot for, and, in addition, Beck of Sioux City put up another cup to be known as the Beck trophy, to be won by the best team score at 500 yards, the trophy to become the property of the team winning twice in succession. There was also put up that year an individual medal to become the property of the man making the highest individual score. Since 1891 the trophies have been won by the different teams in the following order: In 1892 Company F won both cups and Capt. Edens the individual, at Sioux City; in 1893 Company F won the H trophy and Company A of Mason City the Beck, at Sioux City; in 1894 Company C of Webster City won both at Spencer; in 1895 Company F won both at Waverly; in 1896 Company C won both at Okoboji; in 1897 Company F won both at Fort Dodge.

AL, qiLSON AND BUBO-LABS. AJgonn's Olio Time Sporting Man Has a Time Down at Ponda. Al. Gilson will be remembered in Algona as an all-round sporting man. The Pocahontas Record gives one of his recent experiences: The family of Widow Gilson of Fonda retired, and shortly after a young lady staying with Mrs. Gilson heard a commotion in their chicken house. She immediately called Al. Gilson, who went out to the chicken house and looked in, but as it was very dark he could not distinguish anything. Waiting a moment he said: "You fellows are good ones around robbing widows' chicken houses." Just then something struck Al. on the head and he was knocked down; but he immediately jumped to his feet in time to sieze hold of the thief as he was attempting to escape. Then a struggle took place in which Al, was getting the worst of it, when Mrs, Gilson rushed into the fray and grabbed the thief around the neck, but he shook her off and struck her in the mouth, knocking her down, but not before she discovered that the thief was bald headed. The thief had only freed himself from Mrs. Gilson, when the young lady rushed in with a bed slat and hit the thief on the head. This ended the fracas, and the young lady fainted away and was carried into the house, where she was placed in bed and unable to get out of bed for two or three days owing to the shock to her nervous system.
