Mr. Bowles, editor of the . . .

. . . Springfield Republican, who is on a visit to England, finds it very difficult to discriminate between the British clergy of the established church and the hotel waiters – they dress so much alike.  “As far as he has gone” Mr. Bowles is more favorably impressed with the waiters than the parsons.
