Answer:  ROUGH DRAFT

(At first I thought I that I smelled a stinky pun, butt it passed rather quickly.  You could say it was . . . “Gone With the Wind”!  I could also make many jokes about breaking wind, which of course would be “Breaking Bad”.  So, I won’t go there.

A mule is the “hybrid” offspring of a male “donkey” and a female horse.  They make for “grand” beasts of burden, but they are “unfit” for breeding, as they are sterile.  Many years ago we had a reader who would use the Jumble clue words to make a few clever sentences.  And, more recently, our friend Ken has done the same.  All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  While three of the jumbles did come up as new.  Only “futin” has definitely been used before.  I wonder if the guys will ever use “putin”?  The answer letter layout was a fun ten letter jumble.  Not obvious.

A fine period piece cartoon.  Must be the early 1880s.  I’m surprised that Edison didn’t come up with the electric fan first.  I’d think that the head guy there is trying to work out the blade design.  A fun Monday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
