Editorial comment on this plate:´╗┐

Our frontispiece this week is from a negative by Mr. William Walker, a member of the Chautauqua School of Photography.  It is a fair example of Mr. Walker’s clever composition work, and particularly well justifies its title. The carefully posed subjects tell the “old, old story” better than any words of ours. The setting is most attractive and shows care in the selection. The introduction of the partly demolished fence was a happy thought, giving a piquancy to the composition. The reproduction is a photogravure from an excellent negative.
