Illustration shows two men on bicycles, one just starting out on
life's journey, being towed by Father Time, the second one is
nearing the end of life's journey and about to get caught by a
scythe and thrown from the bicycle into a grave. Milestones and
signs mark the journey: in youth there is "Health," between 20 and
30 there is "Happiness," at 40 there is "Pleasure," at 50 "Hope,"
at 60 there is "Neglect", between 60 and 70 there are "Regrets" and
"Sickness," at 80 there is "Fear," and at 90 is an open grave with
an owl perched on the mile-marker. At the top center is a "Half Way
House" and at bottom center, in a floral arrangement, is an
hourglass on top of a clock.
