E.S. Wells manufactured a strange combination of products: medicines for the general public, as well as rat poison. Wells claimed that their Worm Syrup treated feverishness (in humans, not in rats), restlessness, and constipation, and would expel worms from the body. It was described on the trade card as "sweet and nice." Wells also manufactured a remedy for corns called "Rough on Corns." This trade card focuses on "Rough on Rats" poison, which was claimed to rid your house of rats, mice, roaches, flies, beetles, moths, ants, skunks, weasels, gophers, moles and muskrats.
