    "Mr. H. Ackley Sackett, a lightning silhouette artist, hailing from New York City, is on the flanks of the Montana racing circuit this season, and is profiling our people as expertly as did the masters of his art when, fifty years ago, before the camera came in use, it was about the only method by which the mass of people could have the counterfeit presentment of their features preserved. Sackett's silhouettes will remain by the thousand in Montana after he has gone again to Gotham."
