Caption: The Monopoly Grinder. There was a jolly miller once/ Lived on the river Dee./ He took his toll from morn till night/ No lark more slithe than he./ And this the burden of his song/ Forever used to be--/ I work for nobody. No, not I./ But everyone works for me.

Remarks: Note the cross ties on the windmill blades. It never seemed to bother the Graphic that the cartoons of Vanderbilt alternatively portrayed him as a monopolist and having at least three other trunk lines as rivals.
