A self-evident fact

Pughe, J. S. (John S.), 1870-1909
Uncle Sam sits in a wooden tub labeled "Dingley Bill," rowing with oars labeled "Monopoly" in a small pool labeled "Home Market" near a sign reading, "Republican Goose Pond." Beyond the pond are several large steam ships, labeled with the major European economic powers. Caption: Uncle Sam--Say! I want you fellows to distinctly understand that I'm not racing with you!
