Remarks: The California cow with an Arizona tail is in the grip of the Central, Southern, and Northern Pacific snakes, as well as one labeled S. F. ? & T. RR. All have descended from the monopoly tree. The head on one snake is apparently Stanford while the head of the Southern Pacific snake is Charles Crocker, who is sucking on an udder labeled wheat, wine, fruits, wool. One of the snake's coils has on it extra heavy rates.
