A seesaw labeled "Commerce" has characters labeled "Wheat" on the low end and "Silver" on the high end. A hand labeled "Supply and Demand" is pushing down on the side of the wheat. William Jennings Bryan is standing on the right holding a paper that states, "'Wheat and Silver are Indissolubly Linked' - Bryan."
