n the fall of 1911, President Taft was presented with a case of bottled water from the Iola Booster Club.

Attached to each bottle was a label: “This bottle contains Neosho river water, nothing else. … We use this water on our streets, lawns, tables. We drink it, and we vouch for its purity. Please try it.”
