to a considerable extent during the period of his Western travels, but he has not been wholly forgotten. The talented draughtsman who supplies the cartoons for the Philadelphia Inquirer, Mr. Godwin, -and of whose brilliant work last month we reproduce three or four specimens, — represents Roosevelt on the Pacific coast bearing aloft the banner of national progress at the moment when the newspapers of the country were commenting upon his remarkable San Francisco speech on American expansion and the control of the Pacific.

Mr. Rogers, of the New York Herald, makes an amusing hit apropos of the presence of Messrs. Roosevelt and Cleveland at the St. Louis exercises commemorating the centennial of the Louisiana Purchase. Those who have seen Mansfield play “Beau Brummel” will appreciate this clever adaptation, although, as a matter

AWAKENED.-RESCUE OF THE SLEEP-WALKER.

From the Brooklyn Eagle (New York). The great conflict between Pennypacker and the cartoonists was at its height last month, and scores of pictures had been launched at the reactionary governor of Pennsylvania. The one on this page represents Senator Quay as holding up Pennypacker in a vain attempt to muzzle the press in the guise of the people's watchdog. Next month we may take occasion to give the subject special attention.

" A LITTLE LOUDER, PLEASE.' From the Record-Herald (Chicago).

It would be amusing to present a large number of the cartoonsmany of them highly humorous, and none of them malicious-in which the newspapers of the country last month made note of ex President Cleveland's "boom" for next year's Democratic nomination. But our space is limited, and a few must suffice. The three on this page are fairly typical. The one from the Brooklyn Eagle expresses the sentiment of many of Mr. Cleveland's old admirers, who look upon him as alone capable of saving the party from its fatal errors.

M for he is likely enough to be still more the man of the next month. Mr. Carnegie was, however, very much in evidence in April and May. The tribute he paid to Booker T. Washington, and his gift to Tuskegee Institute, attracted much attention. His offer to build the various engineers' organizations of New York a million-dollar home is alluded to in the cartoon at the top of this page, and his much more conspicuous gift for what is likely to be called the Temple of Peace at The Hague was a topic of international note.

The new build In 1847, when the people of New York City voted for the establishment of an institution which should be a college and something of a polytechnic institution as well, the name chosen was the New York Free Academy. A building was constructed on the southeast corner of Lex. ington Avenue and Twenty-third Street, which is still the home of the ('ollege of the City of New York, as it came to be known in 1866. In the middle of the last century, this location was away up town, a mile above the center of population. The beautiful buildings recently designed by Mr. George B.
