TAILOR GET WATER OR NO PAY. The undersigned has a complete Steam Cablu Well Prilling Outfit, !WM«ijS|g*»W^I*»»«w ». a TO BUILD A STEEL BRIDGE BLAOKFOED OEOSBIUG THE PLAOE Bridge Men Soon to Submit Bids—Sewerage for the Court House—Other County Board Doings. It has been practically decided by the county board to put in a steel bridge on the river west of Algona, where the Blackford bridge is. The adjourned meeting will be held next Monday to hear bridge men, and at that time a definite arrangement will be made. The idea is to put in steel tubing piers, driven full of piling, and filled with concrete above. It was also practically decided to connect the court bouse with the sewer, if that is extended, and put in water closets, etc., for the use of officials and the public. John G. Smith is a committee to attend to this matter. The matter of numbering the county bridges came up, but no action has yet been taken. The new law requires that every bridge in the county be numbered at each end, by having a plain, board nailed and neatly painted. The board did a large amount of business at its meeting expeditiously. ELECTION JUDGES. The following judges of election were appointed to sit in November. Two extra were named for Sexton, as they have no clerks yet elected for that precinct. The list is as follows: First ward, Alyona, F. H. Vesper, Alex White, C. T. Laage.

To the Editor: Following is the problem as given in Aug. 25 issue of THE UPPER DES MOINES: 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 a side than Paul's and Mr. Brown's is 11 rods longer on a side than Adam's. Each man has 63 square rods more .ban his son. Find the full names of .he boys: that is whether Adam Smith, Adam'Brown or Adam Hinchon. There are only six possible combinations of boys a'nd men as follows: 1, Adam Smith, Paul Brown, Will Hinchon; 2, Adam Smith, Will Brown, Paul Hinchon: 3. Paul Smith, Adam Brown, Will Hinchon: 4, Paul Smith, Will Brown, Adam Hinchon; 5. Will Smith, Adam Brown, Paul Hinchon; 6, Will Smith, Paul Brown, Adam Hinchon. Now Adam cannot be Brown's son because a square track of land 11 rods on a side larger than another square tract is more than 63 square rods longer than that tract. This eliminates combinations numbers 3 and 5. Similarly Paul cannot be Smith's son, because a "square tract of land 23 rods on a side larger than another tract is much more than 63 square rods the largest. This also eliminates number 3 and also number 4. Let us then assume that number 1 is the true combination. By the conditions of the problem we there have Adam's land plus 63 square rods is equal to Paul's land plus 529 square rods, plus two strips of land, each 23 rods wide and as long as one side of Paul's land, and Paul's land plus 63 square rods is equal to Adam's land plus 121 square rods and two strips of land each 11 rods wide and as long as one side of Adam's land. By adding these two equations we eliminate both Adam's and Paul's land and have as a result twice 63 square rods are equal to the four strips of land above named plus 650 square rods a result manifestly absurd. Number 1 cannot, therefore, be the true combination. If we assume number 2 to be the correct combination wn have Adam's land plus 63 square rods equal to Smith's land, and Will's land plus 63 square rods is equal to Adam's land plus 121 square rods plus two strips of land each 11 rods wide and as long as one side oi Adam's land. Adding these two equations eliminates Adam's land, and shows Will's land plus twice 63 square rods equal to Smith's land plus 121 square rods plus the two strips above named. Now as the absolute size ol none of the tracts is given there is no reason why this result may not be true and number 2, therefore, may be the true combination. But by pursuing the same course of reasoning with respect to number 6, we find Will's land plus twice 63 square rods is equal to Brown's land plus 529 square rods plus two strips of land each 23 rods wide and as long as one side of Smith's land which for any condition of the problert to the contrary, may also be true, anc therefore number 6 may also be the true combination, But since number and number 6 cannot both be true, we must conclude the answer to the problem is indeterminate. I am a little surprised at the profess or for proposing aproblem thatdoes nol admit of a solution. O. F. HALE. T. H.
