PAR EXCELLENCE.
                                   
DIRECTIONS FOR USE

     Place a piece of the paper-folded double-on a dish or
plate, sprinkle a little brown sugar over the paper; keep    
it constantly moist with water, and put it near the window
or where flies most frequent. Flies do not eat the paper,    
they drink the poisoned water and die immediately. Let    
the paper be well sweetened on being wet.                         

MANUFACTURED BY
MEXICAN    ROACH    FOOD    CO.,

We wish that we could have been creative enough to come up with a name like Mexican Roach Food Co for a pesticide company, but alas they beat us to it back in the very early 1900s. Personally I would have bought their products just for making me laugh with a name such as that. 

Directions (unlike batteries, usually) were included when you purchased this poison. This sheet would have come with the poison so that users could properly deploy their trap. 

This vintage sheet of directions measures 6 inches tall by 4 inches wide.
