A drawing of Mary Elizabeth Lease, a Populist, lawyer, and experienced orator. She is reported to have said that farmers should raise "less corn and more hell." More an agitator than a practical politician, by 1896 Lease had become alienated from the Populist Party, and thereafter she turned to personal interests.

Date: Between 1890 and 1899
