The way lu which some nrtlsts can distort features without making them unrecognizable Is certainly very re markable, Thomas Nast possessed this faculty to nu extraordinary de gree, and he had u very peculiar way of nildlug uuw faces to his mental photograph gallery.

When ho took his depnrturo ho would purposely leave his cane. Once out side, Nast would make n hasty pencil sketch ou a curd nnd would usually find that his memory wns dcllclcut ns to some detail. Ho would then return, ostensibly for tho cane, nnd another look at the victim would enable him to perfect his sketch, After that lie had thu mail forever.
