The joyous ides of March

At center, President Theodore Roosevelt shows Uncle Sam and Columbia a large plant with flowers showing the members of his cabinet.

Parker shoveling snow at his home in Esopus, an art gallery, Irishmen marching in the rain on Saint Patrick's Day, a woman cleaning house by sweeping a dust cloud of policemen out the door, and Roosevelt grafting a branch labeled "Indian School Mission," with blossom of an unidentified bishop of the Catholic Bureau of Indian Missions, onto the "Interior Dept. Tree."

The art critic

Description:

Theodore Roosevelt, wearing his Rough Rider uniform, and with a "Nobel Prize" extending from one pocket and "The Big Stick" leaning against the wall, changes the title of a large painting of George Washington standing next to his horse so that it reads: "First [crossed out and replaced with] Second in War, First [crossed out and replaced with] Second in Peace, First [crossed out] in the hearts of his countrymen." A book "Alone in Cuba" lies on the floor next to his feet.
