Summary

Illustration shows a skeleton labeled "Death" as a gladiator standing over a "Sick Person"; before giving the death stroke, the skeleton looks to the spectators seated in a section identified as "Anti-Vivisectionists", who, holding their pets close, give the "thumbs down" signal. The emblem on their banner shows a hand about to snuff the flame on a lamp labeled "Progress".
