From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Jan. 10, 1912:
- "Everyone is rejoicing over the fine snow for sleighing. We are having the coldest weather we have had for seventeen years. It looks like the snow will stay on the ground for a long time."
- "Every hotel in the state must be inspected by the county health officers before the first of March and every hotel must have a certificate issued by the Board of Health or cease to operate. Special orders are given by the department to see that the orders of the board abolishing the common drinking cup and the roller towel are complied with. Attention is also invited to the requirements that rope fire escapes and notices telling how they shall be used, be placed in each sleeping room in all hotels, above the ground floor."
- "I. A. Williams arrived in Lawrence this morning and is here to make arrangements for the opening of his Coca Cola factory. The works will be opened up at 7 East Henry [currently Eighth] street in time for the opening of the summer trade. The machine will arrive soon and will be installed."
- [Advertisement] "POSTUM is a pure food-drink made of the field grains, with a pleasing flavour not unlike high grade Java. Economy to one's purse is not the main reason for using Postum. It is absolutely free from ANY harmful substance, such as 'caffeine' (the drug in coffee) to which so much of the nervousness, biliousness and indigestion of today are due. Thousands of former coffee drinkers now use Postum because they know from experience the harm that coffee drinking causes. Boil it according to directions (that's easy) and it will become clear to you why -- 'There's a Reason.'"
