Well, for some strange reason, when I posted the set of advertisements from the front page of The Jasper News the other day, I saw the hugest spike in visitors I’ve ever seen for my site. I have no idea what everyone’s looking for, but here’s a second set of advertisements. I guess we’ll see what happens. :)

So, with that said: here is a second set of advertisements, scattered throughout the rest of The Jasper News for May 25, 1917. There weren’t enough on each page to separate them further, so I didn’t.

Take note of the one from the Jasper Dollar – I added a small excerpt from it. I found it rather amusing. :)

I AM A DOLLAR. A little ageworn, but still in circulation. I am proud of myself for being in circulation. I am no tomato can dollar – not I. This town is only my adopted home, but I like it and hope to remain permanently. When I came out of the mint I was adopted into a town like this in another state. But, after a time, I was sent off to a big city, many miles away.
