Fun little junkbox pickup. Wonder what 2.5 cents could buy?

I snooped around online a bit, and found a clue in the March 24, 1914 Hot Springs Sentinel-Record, page 5. Scroll down to the bottom and see the heading "Jack Goodine Says."

EDIT: Goodine owned the bar. If you want a chuckle, Google "Jack Goodine" and "Arkansas" and "squirrel."

In some establishments and a dime to it and you got a mug or pail of beer also a good seegar for that price.

Enjoyed the newspaper clip.

Funny you should mention a squirrel. Was going to the drive through window of a local restaurant and I saw a blue pickup with the window down, and a squirrel resting on the door where the window would be. I was past the pickup in an instant. That is one of the strangest things I can recall seeing. I couldn't figure out if it was a pet or something.

Attacked by a squirrel. I have to say that this is not the first time I have heard of such a thing. I may or may not have been targeted by an aggressive squirrel in my past.
