CAN YOU WRITE THIS in an oval without lifting the pen fiom the paper The task appears impossible, but ;f you read to the end of this article vou wiil learn hlw to do it. But first read another problem, deemed equally impossible, and of far greater import- ance. It is embodied in the true story of a woman in the neighbourhood of Sheffield, who was puzzled as well as grieved by the state of her twenty-three-year-old daughter—Miss Bradlev. of Our, Coal Aston. The girl had been a great sufferer all her life, and the prchlem of her illness was solved by I faking Dr. Williams' pink pills for pale people. "The doctor." said her mother. "told us that her complaint was anemia, and That she wa* inclined to be consumptive. He was afraid nothing could do her good. She was never able to keep her food down, and felt a heavy oppressiveness, especially in the morning. She never felt ready to get up. We had y ell-nigh tried everything, and the case looked hopeless.. when we tried Dr. Williams' pink pills. and I must tell you truthfully that we feaied they would be of no use in so severe a case as my daughter's, who had been a life-long- sufferer. But it was wonderful to see what an improvement even one box made. We were so pleased with the result that a second box was obtained, and after that was finished my daughter began to pull up again quicker than we had ever thought possible." Miss Biadley. a bright-looking voting wo- man. bore out her mother's statenuuts in praise of the medicine which had done her so much good. Mr. Bradley, who was pre- sent during the interview, said the pills had saved him many pounds in doctor's bills, for which he was very grateful. When a girl is pale and weak. tired and out of breath after the least exertion, her lips white, and her eyes dull and listless, she is in no light petil; let her take but a slight cold and consumption is liable to follow. Her lungs will be strained by coughing, there will be spitting of blood, loss of weight, and a steady wasting away until the end. The disaster results from insufficient blood. Dr. Williams' pink pills put new blood into the veins, build up the wasted strength, and re- store digestion and vitality. The only (itngtr is from mistaking some substitute for the genuine pills. and this can be avoided by ac- cepting only pills which bear the name of Dr. Williams on the wrapper. Where shop- keepers offer substitutes, it is easy to send direct to Dr. Williams' medicine company. Holboin-viaduct.

To return to the problem, you can write 20.000 with an oval round it without lifting the pen or pencil if you fold over the right hand bottom corner of the paper, and then write the figure 20.000. in the middle of the paper beside the folded coiner in such a way that the last "0 touches the folded corner. Continue the line on the folded corner, and back to the main sheet without raising the pencil, after which the oval can be easily made and the trick thus accomplished.
