and notwithstanding the European be

EVOLUTION AND INUUENCE Or THE CARTOON.
Br noiMS Jtatf, 6r Cartoonist (Hrltfen April 14, It03.)
There Is no telling wliou tue art or

of grotesque that have come down to
us from earliest Egyptian times. The
Greeks employed pictures to emphasise
their satire, nnd so did the Itomans.
All through the Middle Ages there were
numberless example of "grotequerle,"
which, curiously enough, were used lu
enforclug the doctrines of tho Church
by means of satirizing tho devil. Hut
tho eighteenth century was me ueytiay
of the cartoon.
thence across the Channel Into England,
cnturlsts carried everything before It; nud It Is safe to say
that we read the history of the time with clearer vision and
with more accuracy of detail for tho mirror which the
caricaturists held up to reflect tho striking peculiarities of
tho men and events passing before It. Gautlcr mentioned
a Spanish cartoonist, Frnuelsco Gaya
ture of ltcmbrandt, Wnttenu ond ltabelals, who preceded
the two great caricaturists of the latter half of tho elgh'
teenth century: George Crulkshauk, In England, and Mous,
Charlet, In France.
It has been reserved for America,
forth a new race of caricaturists, which,
ter title, may be called the personal
seize upon the characteristics of an Individual and so ex
aggerate them that the subjects of the cartoons arc known
by tho most prominent features In their physical, mental
or moral make-up.
Perhaps we American look nt tho
more than other people, hut certain It
and better cartoonists than elsewhere. The very quick
uess with which we boo the point of n Joko demands equal
facility lu portraying drollery In a cartoon. We sketch
boldly nnd leave much of tho unnecessary detail to our
slower cousins. Then. too. our public events happen with,
such startling rapidity that a cartoon of yesterday's do
ings would ho flat to-day, and we must keep very much
nllve nnd be ready for a political chango over night. In
other words, tho alert American must have depicted In his
cartoon the very traits of character that have made him
what he Is the quickest and brightest of men.
