The power behind the scare-crow


Library of Congress Prints and Photographs


A scarecrow in a corn field, labeled "Nomination," is fashioned out of pieces of cloth labeled with the names of several states: "Indiana, Illinois, Mass., Mich., Georgia, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, New Hampshire, West Virginia, [and] New Jersey." It wears a sash labeled "Repudiation." Standing in the background is a farmer wearing a hat labeled "Democracy" and carrying a rifle labeled "Nat'l. Convention." A crow labeled "Bryan," with the face of William Jennings Bryan, is sitting on a fence, eyeing the corn field. Caption: The Democratic Farmer -- If that doesn't keep him out, I've got something here that'll fix him.
