Riddle

Times are hard in a small rural town–business is slowing and people are moving out. It so happens that there are two horse dealerships in town. Unfortunately, there’s only enough people to support one of the dealerships. So the two owners meet and decide that one of them must leave town. Since neither of them want to leave they devise a competition to see who gets to stay. It is decided that they will race their horses across town. Now they don’t want to damage their horses so they change the race rule so that whoever’s horse crosses the finish post LAST wins the race and gets to stay in town. So the next day they set off. Both are ambling along taking rests and getting nowhere nearer to finishing. After a few hours, a wise old man tells them to dismount and gives them some advice, after which the two sprint back to the horses, get on and gallop towards the finish line. Assuming that the race rules were not changed – what advice did the old man give them ?

Answer

Simply to swap horses (whereby getting across the finish line first would ensure that the rider’s horse crossed last).

A wealthy man named Richard Ellis had been counting his money. When he finished, he accidentally left a $100.00 bill on his desk. But when he returned for it a short while later it was gone. Only two other people could have seen the bill. One was the maid, the other was the butler. The maid told him that she had hidden it for safe-keeping under a green book that was on the desk. But when they looked the bill was not there. The butler said he had found the bill where the maid had left it. He had placed it inside the book where he thought there was less chance that somebody would find it. He had written down the page numbers so that he would not forget them. The bill was between pages 35 and 36 he said. But when they looked there was no money in the book. After Mr. Ellis had talked to the maid and the butler he called the police. He knew who had taken the money. Who was it and how did he know?

The butler did it. Mr. Ellis knew the butler was lying because pages 35 and 36 in a book are always printed on opposite sides of the same piece of paper.
