Fly Paper

Dutcher_Fly_Killer

Here’s another ad that grabs your attention with giant type. It got mine, anyway.

You have to hold your head just right to see it, but this advertisement from the July 7, 1892 edition of The Chatham Record is hawking pest control.

BETTER DEAD
THAN ALIVE

Dutcher’s Fly Killer is certain death. Flies are attracted to it and killed at once. They do not live to get away. Use it freely, destroy their eggs and prevent reproduction. Always ask for Dutcher’s and get best results.
