Not this Thanksgiving

Pughe, J. S. (John S.), 1870-1909
Uncle Sam stands on the sidewalk with a large turkey labeled "Business Revival" in a basket labeled "From Cleveland & Co." On the right are three vendors offering scrawny turkeys for sale: from left, "Tom Reed - Presidential Poultry - Anything and Everything - If you don't see what you want, ask for it"; "Cheap Ben - The Old Reliable Dealer, formerly Purveyor to Uncle Sam. No Reasonable Offer Refused"; and "The Home Market - McKinley - Protective Poulterer. High Tariff Turkeys, Calamity Chickens, No Cheap Goods." Caption: Uncle Sam--Well, gentlemen, I've already got my turkey for this year; but I may do some shopping with you next season!
