The epitaph in question is described by the English writer as a "delicious blending of the temporal and spiritual, and one which snows that in the olden times the spir- it of successful advertising was al- readly to be found--in the, business world." The verse ran: beneath this stone, in hope of Zion, uoth lie the landlord ot the Lion, His.son keeps on the business still, the heavenly will. Some anonymous joker, who lived in Toronto in the eighties, was evid- ently familiar with this epitaph as the following facts ahow.
