Here's an interesting "ink blotter" advertising piece from Ada. It's from Barney's City Cigar Store, first door north of First National Bank.

The owner, H.M. "Barney" McGonigle, of Ada, offered all kinds of hot sandwiches, home made pies and soups, smoky goods and pool.

The store's "instant service" offered the best coffee in town. Here's the question that ages you: Can you explain the purpose of an ink blotter?
