Which Tap Will Do It?

Jerry spent his summer vacation working for Mr. Quigley, a farmer. When Jerry returned home for school, he was full of Quigley stories. One day he told his mother in detail how he had worked in the farm flagstone quarry. It was Mr. Quigley's "cash crop."

"A flagstone is flat and thin," he explained. "Some slabs are wider than others, some longer. Sometimes they have corners, sometimes they're round. People who buy them for their garden paths like them to have a round shape.

"Mr. Quigley sells mostly the ones with corners. They're cut from big slabs. Mr. Quigley had me cut some. Boy, does that take patience!"
