This flyer encourages land purchase and development in central Kansas through the Kansas Pacific Railway. The reasoning is an expanded market for wheat and meat due to the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878. The poster contains caricatures of Russia (large bear with helmet and sword) battling Turkey (large turkey with crescent moon affixed to head) while Uncle Sam looks on encouragingly.

Creator: Kansas Pacific Railway Company
Date: Between 1876 and 1879
