MYSTERY

HOW DID THE COWS CROSS THE ROAD?

The Beartown Constable was patrolling the town's back roads on his bicycle.  As he was passing the fertile fields along River Road he saw young Ivan Tibbets and seven cows standing by a gate.  He stopped and spoke with the lad who appeared to be quite upset.
"Is something wrong?" asked the Constable.
"Well, yes there is.  I have to put these cows in the pasture on the other side of the road and they won't cooperate.  There are 3 black and white Holsteins and 4 brown Jerseys.  I can only hold on to 2 cow collars at a time and take two cows across the road.  If they aren't held by the collar they will run down the road. The larger Holsteins get mean to the smaller Jerseys if they outnumber them. Ive been trying for an hour to get these cows across and every way I try, I leave more black and white cows than brown cows alone on one side of the road or the other!  Can you give me a hand?
"I'm in quite a hurry but I can tell you how you can get all your cows across the road without any trouble." said the Constable.

WHAT DID THE CONSTABLE TELL IVAN TIBBETS?

FROM LAST MONTH

A  BLIND  BET

Amos Carter, Beartown's famous blind writer, recently made a $5,000 bet with his friend Willie Pastor.  Willie was a frequent visitor and one evening he bet Amos $5,000 that he could put six ice cubes into a glass and have Amos place it into his wall safe.  Within an hour, Willie would enter the locked room, open the safe, remove the ice, replace it with cola, close the safe and leave the room all without being heard by the blind writer.
The next evening,
Amos listened carefully as Willie dropped exactly six ice cubes into a glass.  Amos felt the ice cubes and placed the glass into the safe.  Willie left the room taking along a bottle of cola.  An hour later, Amos answered Willie's knock at his door.  After admitting Willie, Amos went directly to his wall safe, opened it and removed the glass.  It was half full of a liquid which Amos verified as cola by tasting it.  He paid Willie the $5,000.
Amos suspected he'd been taken so he called the Beartown Constable and explained what had taken place.
The
Beartown Constable responded, "Even with your superior hearing, you could not have heard this scam being committed.
WHAT DID THE CONSTABLE  DECIDE HAD HAPPENED?

SOLUTION: COLA was used to make the ice cubes.
