and his blue swallow-tail coat is bespangled
with stars. Ho is tho personification
of tho United States aud
we call him Uncle Sam.
"He is tho composite of tho wildcat
and tho cooing dove tho lion and
tho lamb, and tho summer evening's

tho embodiment of all that is most

at his wonderful power, and bows in
admiration of his matchless magnanimity.
