CAYU8E AND AUTOMOBILE.
An automobile and a pinto cayuse
going down the. street-side by side.
Yesterday and today the past and
present tho picturesque and the com
mercial the old and the now.
It is needless to say that on tho
back of the cayuse was a personage
as picturesque as he. And at the
rudder of the automobile was a figure
as expressive of modern Ideas as the
clipping, noiseless machine itself.
