THE GIRAFFE PROBLEM

` Now, considering the ground-bait that I had been putting down at breakfast, I consider the betting was ten to one that she would reply that I ought to have been a giraffe. Instead of that, she said that Wilkins would get them for me, and then seemed surprised that I was annoyed. A few minutes later I tried the governess with precisely the same remark, and she asked me if I would like to have a ladder fetched. (I often wonder what I pay that woman her salary for.) Then Mrs Hebor came out-as dependable a woman as I know in a general way ; you nearly always know what she is going to say before she says it-and I told her that I liked cherries, but hated climbing to get them.
`" You ought," she began-and this time I thought I really had got it-" to be able to reach some of those without climbing."
'After that I gave up. No amount of intelligence can contend against luck like that. Matter of fact, I'm tempted to give up this problem business altogether.'
