· · 057· · He came as a Butcher: but gravely declared,
· · 058· · · · When the ship had been sailing a week,
· · 059· · He could only kill Beavers. The Bellman looked scared,
· · 060· · · · And was almost too frightened to speak:

· · 285· · But the Butcher turned nervous, and dressed himself fine,
· · 286· · · · With yellow kid gloves and a ruff--
· · 287· · Said he felt it exactly like going to dine,
· · 288· · · · Which the Bellman declared was all "stuff."

· · 409· · Such friends, as the Beaver and Butcher became,
· · 410· · · · Have seldom if ever been known;
· · 411· · In winter or summer, 'twas always the same--
· · 412· · · · You could never meet either alone.

Yes, and this probably is one of the funniest allusions by Henry Holiday among his Snark illustrations.
