1.)"Doan's Directory of the United States--1912 and 1913”. This 32 page booklet goes into detail giving the census of towns and cities all across the United States. It is copyrighted in 1912 by the Foster-Milburn Drug Company. The booklet is sponsored by Doan's Kidney Pills of Buffalo, New York. The front cover shows a wonderful drawing of a couple coming home after a trip around the world being so happy to see the Statue of Liberty while the back shows a drawing a picture of a blacksmith who has a stiff back and may need Doan's pills to relieve his back pains. Throughout the booklet there are other Doan's products that will help in treating shingles, herpes, eczema, piles, rashes, salt rheum, rheumatism, blood purifiers, cuts, sprains, bruises, burns, scabies, tetter, itch, pimples, scald head, blackheads, and constipation.
