- Puck holds a shotgun over one shoulder and a dead owl in his raised right hand. With him are two hunting dogs labeled "Wit" and "Satire." He is surrounded by dead animals that have the faces of politicians, including James G. Blaine, Roscoe Conkling, George M. Robeson, and William E. Chandler. A frog probably represents Benjamin F. Butler, an unidentified man is lying in the marsh grass, and a bird of prey, with the face of Jay Gould, carries off a sheep with "Wit" in pursuit.
