BEANFEAST PUZZLE.— solution**

The cobblers spent 35*s*., the tailors spent also 35*s*., the
hatters spent 42*s*., and the glovers spent 21*s*. Thus, they spent
altogether £6,13*s*., while it will be found that the five cobblers spent
as much as four tailors, twelve tailors as much as nine hatters, and six hatters
as much as eight glovers.
