A played-out tenor - from star to street-singer
Roscoe Conkling is a street musician singing in the street outside the "Washington Senatorial Opera-House." With him is a small dog labeled "Howard Carroll" who is holding a hat into which Puck, shedding a tear, drops a coin, and two street urchins, one recognizable as Ulysses S. Grant. Caption: Signor Conklingini (singing) - When Grant slipped up upon his nomination, / And failed to reach the presidential station, / Ten long years back it put this luckless nation. / And hence I sing - I sing - in lonely - lo-ho-honely degradation!
