    Shows John Russell (1st Earl Russell) and Edward G G S Stanley (14th Earl of Derby) quarrelling in a cow-shed. On the left, a dozing cow wonders: 'Oh, if they'd only leave off quarrelling, and just try "united action", it might be the saving of me!'. William E Gladstone and Benjamin Disraeli look on in the background behind their respective party leaders.
