A hard beast to handle
A silver elephant wearing a ribbon labeled "Currency Problem" stands in a stall with a shackle labeled "Cleveland's Veto" on one foot. A notice on the wall states, "Look Out for the Elephant - He is Dangerous." A battered old man labeled "Dem. Majority" lies on the floor, while another man labeled "Rep. Majority" approaches reading a booklet labeled "Republican Method of Handling Financial Elephants." Uncle Sam taps him on the shoulder in warning. Caption: Uncle Sam--Don't be over-confident, my friend; - he was too much for that Democratic keeper, and he may be too much for you!
