Do They Still Make This Balsam?

lamenessjune 4 1913

I saw the non-ironic legend in this Chatham Record ad and I thought to myself, sometimes this stuff writes itself. I immediately scanned the ad and spooled the microfilm back to the beginning.

Unfortunately in my haste I forgot to note the date of the advertisement (we always provide the date in case you want to peruse the issue yourself here at the library). It took a while to relocate the ad and identify the date (June 4, 1913).

Is there a tonic for this particular kind of lameness?
