- Print shows Charles A. Dana as an archaeologist who has just excavated a statue labeled "S.J.T." and "Buried in 1876" from "Greystone," behind which Henry Watterson, on the left, and John Kelly, on the right, glower and gesture in anger. Dana is using "Newspaper Cement" to attach arms, hands, and feet labeled "Popular Enthusiasm" and "New Political Footing" to the statue. One arm and hand with a flower labeled "Clean Record" have already been pinned in place. There is a basket of tools labeled "Editorials" and a pick labeled "Wire Pulling" at Dana's side. In the background, a banner atop the White House states "Presidential Museum." Caption: C. A. Dana (having excavated an Old Fossil) "I guess I can palm him off on the people for their Museum in 1884!"
