Includes: Lavine Soap, showing a group of Chinese of the , “Yong Gee Fum Laundry” dancing around a box of detergent. Chinese laundrymen sailing back to China while one watches white men bathing in the ocean wearing neat white shirts, lamenting “No more washee washee, Melican wear Celluloid Collar and Cuff”. Caucasian salesman displaying a box of Waterproof Celluloid Cuffs and Collars to Chinese in a laundry, Johnson & Hinck Groceries, Minneapolis (printed by McAlloster, Chicago), with caricature of Chinese men running in fright from a large dog, captioned, “Ha!
