- A "countryman" labeled "Rep. Party" carries a whip and drives a donkey labeled "Taxpayer" who is carrying a large sack labeled "War Tariff" that contains a counter weight labeled "Iniquitous Pensions" on its back. Caption: A countryman having some grain to carry to the mill, was bothered as to how to balance the load upon his donkey's back. Finally he hit upon the expedient of placing a large stone in the other end of the sack. Thus did he balance matters to his great satisfaction; - but to the doubling of the load on the donkey.
