This illustration appeared in The Religious Telescope on 28 August, 1912. It was reprinted the following year in The Watchword, also published by United Brethren Publishing in Dayton, Ohio. Nationalism was not an unusual theme for E. J. Pace, but it was usually qualified by a Scriptural reference(s). This 'secular' cartoon was also reprinted in a number of newspapers (Hearst Syndicate, most likely) and other journals across the United States, but Pace could not be induced to work directly for secular publishers, despite strong monetary enticements.
