A promising chicken

Dalrymple, Louis, 1866-1905
A small chick labeled "Prosperity" has emerged from a large egg labeled "Easter 1897." A rooster labeled "Rep. Party" is crowing in the background and a hen with the head of President McKinley is strutting on the right. Caption: It is pretty small yet - but it is bound to grow.
