The good boy

Pughe, J. S. (John S.), 1870-1909
An elderly woman labeled "Republican Party" sits in a rocking chair, knitting. John Sherman sits on a low stool on the left, reading a book labeled "Sound Finance," with a toy "pop-gun" on the floor next to him. A cake labeled "Presidential Nomination 1896" sets on a table on the right. Caption: He has put away his naughty "sectionalism" pop-gun, and is real good now. Puck hopes it isn't on account of the cake.
