The convention spring at Saratoga

Glackens, L. M. (Louis M.), 1866-1933
A "Medicinal Spring" with water labeled "A Clean-Cut Progressive Platform" flows from a stone figure shaped like Theodore Roosevelt. "Sherman, Woodruff, Wadsworth, [and] Barnes" are standing by the spring, holding glasses, with dubious looks on their faces. Caption: You can lead them to the waters, but can you make them drink?
