A bit long for Stephen's tombstone, but I suppose it filled the column of Mr. Twain's newspaper just fine.

(Well, it was either write the ode or go out and find/create another deceased to fill the obit page. I imagine that was done from time to time. Fictional deceased I mean.)

Well, it was in a chapter of Huckleberry Finn, not in a newspaper.

I just discovered Twain's "King Leopold's Solioquy"...I had never heard of it before. Might be interesting to read it with Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" since I haven't read the latter since high school.
