The image is a dead link and doesn't seem to have it. If you still have this image, please let me know. Otherwise, I will delete that part of the page. (It's a mate problem, not directly related to the description of the game itself.)

Somewhat like Fourriere's Jack at Jacks and Witches that moves out of its Eye, the symmetric square horizontally. R e3-h3 is checkmate, because that Rook reflects to where the Knight is, and Knight goes to h3. Then the King is trapped by the Rook-covered unchanging a-file and the King, because the Black King will be reflected to one of h7, g7 or g8, checkmate. All right, rest in peace Alicia and peculiar to say the least Charles Dodgson.
