Page of Pres­i­dents

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - STYLE -

The Page of Pres­i­dents was an ad­ver­tis­ing con­test pub­lished in the Arkansas Gazette on May

16, 1917. Each of the 27 U.S. pres­i­dents to that date was spon­sored by a Lit­tle Rock busi­ness. Each spon­sor’s ad block in­cluded at least one mis­spelled word.

To­day we might have bonus boo­boos. How many er­rors can you find? (An­swers be­low.)

A well-kept, down-to-date Drug Store is a rev­e­la­tion. One that fills pre­scrip­tions with the great­est care from the purest drugs and gives FREE DE­LIV­ERY with dis­patch. Here you find a Soda Foun­tain where all the pop­u­lar Drinks, Ices and Ice Creams are served. We keep the deliceous JOHN­STON’S CHOCO­LATES. Toi­let ar­ti­cles and many nov­el­ties. Ladies when they try the drinks from our foun­tain, ex­claim with ex­tasy, “Oh, how el­e­gant.” We be­lieve in qual­ity, and prac­tice it. BORDEAUX’ PHAR­MACY.

ABRA­HAM LIN­COLN.

Born Fe­bru­ary 12, 1809, Nolin Creek, Ky. President age 52; served from March 4, 1861, to April 15, 1865, when he was as­sas­si­nated by Booth. Died age 56. Buried in Ridge ceme­tery, Spring­field, Ill.

Abra­ham Lin­coln said: “You can fool all the peo­ple some of the time and some of the peo­ple all of the time, but you can’t fool all the peo­ple all of the time.”

The civili­ized world pays homage to “Hon­est Abe,” be­cause the peo­ple are al­ways quick to rec­og­nize and ap­pre­ci­ate hon­est ser­vice. For that rea­son the peo­ple of Lit­tle Rock and of Arkansas are show­ing ev­ery day their ap­pre­ci­a­tion of my cash plan in the prac­tice of medicine. The of­fice fee is $1.00, cash; medicines free. A.W. JERNIGAN, M.D.
