Original caption
THE TWA BAGPIPERS. Old Bagpiper - "Ye're a chiel after mon own heart, Jamie. Ye ken weel how to edit ma papper; ye said three months ago 'Frank Leslie's Budget of Fun is a bigoted sheet, and muckle behind the age,' and I ken now ye say in to-days papper, 'Frank Leslie's Budget of Fun is the only literature the American public want - it has the humor of the London Paunch, with the authority of the London Times.' Ye ken weel, my bairn, to walk on both sides the hedge at once - here's a bawbee for yer, gang and treat yerself to some parritch."
