Current Comment [excerpt]

     Our National Museum of Fossilized Incompetancy [sic], sometimes designated as the American senate, will shortly grapple with the momentous problem, “How to suppress Anarchy?” Judging from the character of the various bills already introduced, that august(?) body is going to startle us with something rich, rare and racy in the way of legislation. We can certainly expect something unique and original; and, even if the Anarchists are not butchered to make a senatorial holliday [sic], the dignified senators may add some valuable contributions to America’s humorous literature.
