What can break but stay in one piece? (This time it's not news.)
A man left a $10,000 dollar bill on his desk and went out for the day. When he came home later that afternoon the money was gone.

Only 2 people could have taken it. The gardener and the cook. When he asks the cook, she said that she saw and money and put it underneath a book on the table so no one would steal it.

The man and the cook look and the money is still missing.

Then he asks the gardener what he saw and he says that he saw the cook hide the money under the book and decided it would be safer to put it inside the book and even wrote down the page number so he could remember, between page 45 and 46.

The man looks at the book and knows right away who the thief was. Who's the thief and how did he know?

A king has 100 identical servants, each with a different rank between 1 and 100. At the end of each day, each servant comes into the king's quarters, one-by-one, in a random order, and announces his rank to let the king know that he is done working for the day. For example, servant 14 comes in and says "Servant 14, reporting in."

One day, the king's aide comes in and tells the king that one of the servants is missing, though he isn't sure which one.

Before the other servants begin reporting in for the night, the king asks for a piece of paper to write on to help him figure out which servant is missing. Unfortunately, all that's available is a very small piece that can only hold one number, (1, 200, etc.), at a time. The king is free to erase what he writes and write something new as many times as he likes, but he can only have one number written down at a time.

The king's memory is bad and he won't be able to remember all the exact numbers as the servants report in, so he must use the paper to help him.

How can he use the paper such that once the final servant has reported in, he'll know exactly which servant is missing?
