In addition to illustrating stories and articles by other authors, Remington frequently wrote and illustrated his own articles and stories. This is one of two illustrations done for his short story, "A Failure of Justice". The tale concerns Captain Halleran of the Dragoons who witnesses a near triple murder in a combination restaurant-saloon-hotel in the town of Alkali Flat. The quote that names the piece is taken from his description of the captain, which goes on to state: "What sweat and alkali dust won't do to a uniform, sleeping on the ground in it for a month or two will...

Caroline has an Armand Marseille bisque head, brown hair and brown eyes. She wears an ivory satin evening gown adapted from an original gown of the actual period. The gown features a cream lace and moire' taffeta tiered panel front with hand-embroidery and a cream-colored lace jabot. The bunched up folds at the side of the skirt were another replay of the polonaise style, but also reflected "aesthetic dress", a looser style of apparel championed by the Pre-Raphaelites among others. She wears the pointed "v" bodice typical of the period and the elaborate trim, swags, and layers are common contemporary elaborations as well....

Carrie has a German bisque head with brown hair and blue eyes. She is wearing a navy blue georgette suit with navy shirred braid trim. According to the notes, she is wearing a taffeta cape with this, but I do not see it in the photograph. With it she wears a navy blue straw hat and accompanying veil and black satin high boots. After the war, skirts remained shorter than before, but dresses took on a tubular design known as a "barrel line". They were cylindrical with a boyish bust. To achieve the look, many women began to wear "flatteners"...

There seem to be some discrepancies between the way the doll's costume is described in Mrs. Gray's notes and the actual doll. Catherine has a German bisque head with red hair and brown eyes. According to the notes she is wearing a silver and gold embroidery evening dress, augmented with yellow tissue cloth. She is also supposed to have pearl hair ornaments, gold and pearl earrings, and a pearl necklace; none of these are evident and she has a white cape on her head which is not included in the notes and would not seem to go with the costume....

The younger brother of Rosa Bonheur, Auguste, like his sister, received his early training from his father and debuted at the Paris Salon in 1845 with Enfants aux Champs (Children in the Field). While his early work was of genre scenes and portraits, his sisters success as an animalier persuaded him to do similar paintings; he often copied her style and even her subject matter, as can be seen in the similarities between Cattle at Rest and Rosas Boeufs et Taureaux de la Race du Cantal only the landscape has really changed. But that in itself indicates the one...

Remington made frequent trips to both Mexico and Canada. In this instance, he had traveled to Mexico to gather research for illustrations in an article on the Mexican army by Thomas Janvier. Always fascinated by military uniforms, he prided himself on careful observation and meticulous accuracy in his depiction of them, a pride that sometimes led to uncomfortable altercations with other artists, like the one he initiated with rival Charles Schreyvogel over the latter's portrayal of Custer. Occasioning no such conflict, this Mexican trooper was one of Remingtons early pieces, appearing in the November, 1889 issue of Harper's Monthly.
