Transcription"The North Dakota farmer has made such a success with the new style of political plowing that he had been asked to help out in other states. the work in the neighboring states is well under way. It is just the right season for the work. The soil is in excellent condition for turning over. There are plenty of willing hands to co-operate and a fine crop is certain. Broad furrows have already been turned in Minnesota, South Dakota and Montana. The stubble of political corruption and the weeds of market graft are being turned under and the ground made ready for a clean crop that will bring prosperity to the farmers of the Northwest." - Text accompany cartoon.
