This is a proprietary article, largely advertised in the Eastern states,

and meets with rapid sales and is used for catarrh. The directions are to

dip the little finger into the balm and insert up the nostrils giving two

or three inhalations. It is as follows:

Thymol 3 grains

Bismuth Carbonatis 15 grains

Oil of Wintergreen 2 minims

Vaselin to make 1 ounce

The above amount would cost about 25 cents.
