Reporter's POV; the Secrets of Barney's Cigar

This is an interesting set of articles from 1906. One article provides a reporter's point of view as he takes a ride around a track at speed with Oldfield in the Peerless Green Dragon. Another is a side bar where Oldfield explains the utilitarian purpose of his trademark cigar. Finally, there is promotional ad that communicates the program for a barnstorming event, complete with the "illuminated parade" through town the night before.
Note that this article was written by the award-winnng and pioneering sports writer Bozeman Bulger.
