Are you getting tired of only reading digital books? On Wednesday, April 1st, I will be at the library from 2:00 till 5:00 pm to check out books. No one will be allowed in the library, but I will take orders via email firstname.lastname@example.org or over the phone 308-527-4241 (leave a message if I’m not there). I will then place your books on the front step in a bag with your name on it. You can send requests for specific books, or you can just give me a general request like “six picture books about animals” or “two Nora Roberts books”. All books should be returned to the drop box. For your safety, all returned books will be quarantined for three days before they are placed back into circulation. Our book collection is now online and fully searchable.

This ad is out of the Sargent Leader dated December 12, 1918. Even back then, they used a malaria drug to treat colds, influenza, and pneumonia.
Here’s an interesting newspaper article from the Sargent Leader dated October 24, 1918. Notice how the article recommends people to “build up their powers of resistance” by taking Tanlac tonic. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1916, Tanlac is described as the “sky-rocket in the pyrotechnics of fakery”.

It has become necessary to remove the Sargent Leader Newspaper Archive from online access. It was being hosted by GoDaddy, and they claim the newspaper archive violates their terms and conditions. We disagree, but nevertheless, the newspaper archive has been taken offline for now. Hopefully it will be returned in the future.
You can still access and search past issues of the Sargent Leader on the library’s computers.
