A bitter dose

Pughe, J. S. (John S.), 1870-1909
James R. Garfield, as a physician, administers a large dose labeled "Federal Franchise" to a bloated, elderly man labeled "The Trusts" sitting in a chair with his feet soaking in a tub labeled "Rough on Railroads." On a table are various medicines named after states, and on the right, Uncle Sam, as a nurse, is standing in the background. Caption: Dr. Garfield -- This may reduce your income, but it will steady your nerves.
