The Wyoming Whoop

There is the same skilfull intermingling of comedy and pathos, the same give and take of witty dialogue and the same working up of a semi-dramatic finish with a swift, certain and unexpected laugh to meet the curtain in mid-air.
The manuscript of "The Wyoming Whoop" probably reads much better than that of the former Cressy sketch, but the business and action of the new offering dalls below it in laughter compelling qualities. There are innumerable good things in the lines, which fairly sparkle with neat aphorissms and the quaint philosophy of the New England farmer, converted into a rough and ready Western editor by the simple process of necessity and a Colt 44.
