a pout mortim qxaminatiou by direction
of the jury. The necessary parts of the
bod were turned over to Prof. liedd and
the result will be known in a few days.
The tleath of this woman was singular
and should .have been investigated at

. Messrs. Editors : In my answer "to
your apple question in your last number,
3 our t3rpc made me say eleven, in my
copy, w hen it should have been fourteen.
Now, Messrs. Editors, as you are on
the puzzle question, if you will a.low
me. space, 1 will oiler the following :
Thiee little boys 'earned eggs to mar
ket: A carried tdh, B thirty and C fifty.
They all sold at the same price per egg,
and all received the same amount of
