This cartoon celebrates a surge in farm income that will help a stalled business cycle. A pipe-smoking bespectacled mustachioed man labeled "Farmer' wearing a fancy hunting hat, coat, and vest comes to a general store's front counter. He carries a bulging money bag marked "A Billion More to Spend This Year Than in 1926 $." His rear pants pocket has a paper proclaiming "Farm Income." His arrival interrupts a checkers game labeled "Summer Slump." One of the players, a mustachioed man marked "Business Pick-Up" leaps up and exclaims "Yes, Sir!" The other player, a chubby boy, has a broad smile.
