The Cover

Poets have long enjoyed license to rhyme as they please, landscape painters to move objects about for better balance, and cartoonists to accentuate the obvious. And so it was with Puck artists who delighted in sketching Kansas' U.S. Sen. William A. Peffer wearing whiskers longer than was his custom, as in this drawing, published under a copyright date of 1895. Other sketches are reproduced between pp. 64, 65.
