Unhappy newspaper underlay?

My husband and I just bought an older house and when the carpet was pulled up there is newspaper sticking to a painted wood floor. Most of the paper is removable but certain areas the ink and some paper residue won't come up. Anyone know how to solve this dilemma?

Try mineral spirits or charcoal lighter fluid on a rag and wip with the grain of the wood.

If that doesn't do it, sand and refinish.
