THEC0UKIB1L WE AND OUR NEIGHBORS f It 16 a pity, from the cartoonists point of view, that the two most prominent presidential candidates look so much alike. When the cartoonist does not tack his butt's name on to his coat, his hat, or his belt, he depends for recogni tion upon some arrangement of the whiskers or upon some feature, luckily for them, characteristic Conkling's nose, Grant's square face, whiskers and mole, Cleveland's size, which they have some difficulty in contra-distinguishing from Reed's size and shape, Depew's burnsidee, and Peffer's whiskers, are easy marks of identification . Mr. Bryan and Mr. McRinley have regular features, they are smooth shaven, they are neither lean enough or fat enough to be remarkable. Altogether the artists are forced to affix names to their portrait which is a painful though self-delivered blow. The Napoleonic ' likeness and hat which they have bestowed upon Mr. McKinley identifies him' from every body but Napoleon but the necessities of ...

Yes, replied, I may say that I have solved a few mysterious cases in my time. There was one in particular that puzzled mo tremendously, and was so clever a dodge as to seem almost in credible. It was at a little village in Yorkshire, I was wired for, and hast ened to attend with all promptitude. I wan cordially welcomed by the local in spector, who informed me that they had arrested a man on suspicion, and that the evidence was very black against him. He then related all the particu Jars of the cast) to me, which were as follows: The murdered man was a very eccent ric character, aged about fifty. With the exception of an extremely old man, who waited on him, he lived alone, being a confirmed woman-hater. "The old man,'" I burst in, "have you arrested him?"

For two nights he appeared before the wealth and beauty of Omaha in the traditional top boots and high hat of the master of the ring, and he cracked his whip In a way that made teamsters on the tack feats salute him.
