Nice image of boy in a hammock, feeding a bird. On back, image of a woman taking a hatchet to her washboard, along with interesting text:

A Sensible Woman
She’s putting the washboard where it’ll do some good. She has suffered with it long enough; broken her back over it, rubbed the clothes to pieces on it, wasted half her time with it. But now she’s using Pearline – and when a woman uses Pearline, the only way to use the washboard is in the kitchen fire. There’s no more hard work, no more ruinous rubbing, but there’s washing that’s easy and economical and safe.
Millions of women are just as sensible as this one. Are you?
Toning on back.
