The Lampoon.

Two things are conspicuous in the current Lampoon. One is the centre-piece, for which not much else is to be said. The second is a two page legend entitled "Sherlock on the High Seas," in the main well written and embellished with well executed designs. The other contributions are for the most part likely to leave the prominence of Sherlock uncontested. Exception may be made for two drawings and nearly as many small jokes. There is something in the editorial column. Paragraphs of this latter sort only serve to set the reader to thinking of what a humorous editorial might be. A witty comment is so forceful if rightly directed that it would be most desirable if the Lampoon could turn its thoughts toward things really worth considering.
