ARCHITECTURAL HUMOUR. Up and down the country are to be found hundreds of examples of the humour of eccle- siastical architects of a past age: from the snarl- ing griffins worked into the stonework of Henry VII.'s Chapel, Westminster Abbey, to the dun cow and milkmaids in Durham Cathedral. A cat playing a violin can be seen in Wells Cathedral; and in Hereford Cathedral two cats, apparently performing a violin duet. Boston "stump" is crowded with fantastic carvings, among which may be mentioned a wife chastising her hus- band, a teacher caning a pupil, and an orchestra composed of bears playing an organ, a bagpipe, and a drum.
