A BEARTOWN MYSTERY
Recently a Beartown farmer died leaving a
wife and three sons. His will said that the eldest son
was to receive one-half of what he owned, the middle son
was to receive one-third, and the youngest son was to
receive one-ninth. All the farmer owned, however was
seventeen horses. And try as they might, the mother and
three sons could not figure out any way to divide the
seventeen horses by the father's wishes.
How did the Constable do this? Check the next issue of Beartown News for the answer.
LAST ISSUE'S SOLUTION: In the Artic Circle at Christmas time a fire could not have been started by using the sun's rays. The sun disappears in the far north from October to about March. In the summer the opposite occurs and this region is known as The Land of the Midnight Sun.
