The American farmer - where he has to sell, and where he has to buy

Dalrymple, Louis, 1866-1905
Print shows Uncle Sam as an American farmer trying to sell his products labeled "Pork, Wheat, Butter, Beef, Oats," and corn overseas where there is stiff "Open Competition" at the "Market of the World" represented by John Bull labeled "England" and "Germany, Russia, South America, [and] Australia." In a vignette, Uncle Sam is shown at "The McKinley Home Market and High Prices" looking at the merchandise for sale, where all the items that he needs have been "Marked Up" 35% to 45%; McKinley offers him a new coat that has been marked Up 35%.
