- James Gillespie Blaine stands on the "Republican Race Track" in an arena, apparently frozen in position as his tattooed ghost races past him. A sign in the center of the track states "Presidential Race Against Time - Blaine to Beat His Own Record." In the background is a tent with banner labeled "J. Blaine" and decked with floral wreaths that state "With Compliments J. Gould" and "With Compliments from C. Field," and one shaped like a horseshoe from "R. Sage." Whitelaw Reid stands outside the tent, holding a bucket and a sponge labeled "Tribune" and William Walter Phelps peaks through the flaps with a concerned look on his face. Among those in the grandstand on the left are A. M. Clapp, George M. Robeson, Alonzo B. Cornell, John Roach, and Thomas Jefferson Brady. Caption: Chorus of Friends "Go in, Jim! - brace up! Can't you do any better than that?"
