This is a unique pharmacy label for favoring to make things taste like whiskey. Prohibition was such an odd time. Raffaele De Angelis invented Citrate of Magnesia. He was born in Italy and moved to Providence in 1904. Because of the success of his product, he soon built his pharmacy on 131 Knight Street. He was a very charitable person and would often let his customers "pay him later". Everyone out of respect referred to him as "Don" and the misspelling of whiskey can probably be attributed to his Italian heritage and with the amount of success he had he never needed to change it.
