Wier's Lemon Seltzer Cures Headaches

Wier's Lemon Seltzer Cures Headaches
Front and back of a small folded advertisement for Wier's Lemon Seltzer that also includes a chronology of the Spanish-American War, which took place in 1898 (the year "1899" above the "Historical Events in the Spanish-American War" heading is apparently either a typo or is intended to show when the ad was published).
