Another of those irresistible funny cartoons which have taken the country by storm. The action in these pictures is lifelike and not "jumpy." Col. Liar penetrates the desert and meets with surprising adventures. He hatches an ostrich egg, is saved from a hungry bear by a sleeping porcupine, is chased by an angry tiger, which he slays in a novel way, overcomes another bear by getting him drunk, is persecuted by a frolicsome monkey, and finally leaves the desert triumphant, having killed a regular menagerie, all at one shot.
