100 YEARS AGO Oct. 28, 1913 CONWAY — Dr. Frank A. Goodwin of Hot Springs today pleaded guilty to a charge of practicing medicine without a license and was fined $25 by Justice of the Peace M. Easterwood. Dr. Goodwin has been visiting Conway for a number of years, and with a black face comedian to draw crowd, delivered “lectures” on the streets to advertise his medicines. He formerly sold his medicines from the stand, but when the anti-peddling act became effective, he placed them on sale at a local drug store.
