Notes: "There is no story or history to specak of behind the device of Wlliam M. Cheney, that printer assures us. "I happened once to think about auks," he writes, "and I drew one with a stick in hand standing before a Pilot press." It here makes one of its too infrequent appearances."© James Lamar Weygand
