He'd better cut behind

Pughe, J. S. (John S.), 1870-1909
President McKinley drives a sleigh labeled "Prosperity," drawn by a horse labeled "Administration." He is towing two small sleds. One labeled "Defective Currency System" is carrying William Jennings Bryan, and the other labeled "Deficit" is carrying a bloated Nelson Dingley. Caption: McKinley--I wonder what makes this pesky thing pull so hard?
