Color print of caricature of a young man with three faces straddling a section of rail fence. On the left he has a beer bottle in his pocket, holds a black man by a neck chain and smokes a corn cob pipe. On his right he has a "Pledge Maine Law" in his pocket, offers a gift to a black hobo, and smokes a meerschaum pipe. A third face smiles at the viewer and says "I'm sittin on the Stile etc."
