Bringing in the dividends

In the first panel of this comic, a farmer sadly watches a horse-drawn wagon travel down "bad roads;" the wagon is surrounded by the words "misfortune," "poverty," "discouragement," and "debt." In the second panel, a smiling farmer with money in his pocket watches a truck drive on "good roads;" the truck is surrounded by the words, "prosperity," "contentment," and "savings."
