     As time flies by, amid the rush and bustle of this eminently practical, work-a-day world, one unconsciously displaces from the mind of today the remembrances of the happenings of yesterday; there are, however, some things which should remain “in everlasting remembrance.” The gentleness, strength and beauty of the personal character of William McKinley and the inestimable value of his services to the Nation and the world at large, should not be consigned to the mental dust heap of oblivion, but should be cherished as a precious heritage by every patriotic American, whether native or foreign-born. Feeling confident that their friends in the medical profession will appreciate at its proper worth a souvenir which shall serve as a constant reminder of the life, character and services of our third martyr President, The Arlington Chemical Company has prepared for gratuitous distribution, a magnificent enlarged reproduction (17x13) of one of the finest and most faithful portraits in existence. Competent critics who have seen this reproduction have expressed themselves as surprised at the faithfulness with which the beautiful Rembrandt effect has been carried out with its rich dark sepia tints and with the general artistic worthiness of the portrait as a whole. The advertisement of Liquid Peptonoids is so unobstrusive [sic] as to be entirely unobjectionable. The Arlington Chemical Co., Yonkers, N. Y., will be pleased to send a copy to any physician who may have failed to receive one, together with suggestions for proper method of framing.
