TO THE KDITOK. Sir,—A member of our party worked out the crib puzzle wh'oh appeared in the Star •f the 19th inst. as follows :—Two partners were to play between them three cards and make 13 points. I will call the players A, B, 0, D; A and C (partners) to Bcnre. A starts with 9, B playa (i, C plays 3, D -1; A then playa 5, scoring 4 for a run. B and D have no cards left, or they are too heavy to come in; so C follows with '2, scoring 5, and A continues with 2, scoring 4 more, or a total of 13 points pegged. The writer pegged 10 points off two cards thi3 evening while playing, and the cards fell the same way a little later on.—l am, «tc, Friday Night. Dunedin, July 2 J.
