A table is toppling over and a baby in a highchair is on the floor. In a caption box are the words: "All this trouble might have been avoided by the use of one fifteen cent box of "Rough On Rats." Clears out rats, mice, flies, bed-bugs, ants, roaches, mosquitoes, &c." In very tiny print at the bottom is: Evening Journal, Jersey City. The reverse of the card also states that "Rough On Rats" clears out skunk and weasel.
