The two sons of an Arab sheik were each overwhelmingly proud of their own horse. When the sheik died he left instructions that they have a race and the one whose horse loses the race would inherit his fortune. They started to race at full speed but gradually slowed down and stopped, not knowing what to do. A passing traveler heard their story and advised them where upon they jumped on the horses and raced as fast as they could to the finish line. What was the advice?

anEMonE  ( Anemone )

Here are the ANSWERS to the PARLOR Issue 13 Conundrumns.

I am neither beast, bird or man, yet I am an animated being.  I began my existence in the beginning of the world. I am frail and weak yet I model the destines of nations.   I am found in all the habitable world. Seldom in front of battle but often follow among the dead and dying.  I am found in prisons and palaces, among the rich and poor.  I have witnessed the struggles of the gladiator and the death of the martyr.  My influence is felt by the king and the beggar.  I was with the disciples at the foot of the cross. Can you guess from this who or what I am? 

A Woman

Here are the ANSWERS to the PARLOR Issue 12 Conundrumns.

~ Why is the world like a slate? 
Because the children of men do multiply theron.

~ Who was the most successful financier mentioned in the Bible?

Noah ~ because he floated a limited company when all the rest of the world was in liquidation.
I'm a singular creature, pray tell me my name.
I partake of my countrymen's glory and fame;
I daily am old, and I daily am new,
I am praised, I am lame, I am false, I am true
I'm the talk of the nation while I'm in my prime,
but forgotten when once I've out lasted time.
In the morning no Miss is more courted than I,
In the evening you see me thrown carelessly by,
Take warning ye fair - I, like you, have my day;
But alas! you, like me, must grow old and decay. 
What am I?

the first three a woman, the first four a great man, and the whole a great woman?

~ My first denotes equality, my second, inferior, and my whole, superiority.  What word am I?

My first brings joy to all around; 
My second may bring sorrow; 
My whole but once a year is found, 
And may be yours to-morrow. 
--- What am I

Your Birthday

Here are the ANSWERS to the PARLOR Issue 10 Conundrumns.
"The conundrum is one of the most favored forms of amusement for the social circle; the answer to this style of riddle generally contains a pun, and the merriment occasioned can be better imagined than described. " 
~ Conundrums, Riddles, Puzzles and Games by Sarah J Cutter cira . 1896

~ Why is a Baker a most Improvident person?

A Lady with a pot of water on her head walking over a bridge.

~ Why is an attractive young lady like a successful gambler?

~Because she has such winning ways!

I should be sharp if I am used,
If dull, I'm cast aside; 
By boys and girls I'm much abused, 
And yet I am their pride. 
A part of me is made of wood, 
And part in earth is found, 
And both together firmly glued, 
Are sent the whole world round. 
--- What am I?
