The other (half a loaf) has two slices on the cutting board beside a cutting knife. Title text reads Occident Flour Makes Better Bread, beneath which is Russell-Miller Milling Co. The illustration and text are on a dark blue background, framed by a thin white line and a larger light blue band. The back of the blotter is blue and is blank.
