While working on a sermon the pastor heard a knock at his office door. "Come in," he invited. A sad-looking man in threadbare clothes came in, pulling a large pig on a rope.

FELLOW'S HYPOPHOSPHITES





Category: Patent Medicines and Secret Forumla

Glucose 1 lb.
Simple Syrup 1 pint
Hypophosphite Calcium 128 grains
Hypophosphite Potassium 48 grains
Ferri Sulp 48 grains
Sulphate Manganese 32 grains
Sulphate Quinine 14 grains
Sulphate Strychnine 2 grains
Water sufficient

Dissolve the calcium and potassium hypophosphites in two fluid ounces of
warm water. Add to one ounce of water, three fluid ounces of the syrup and
dissolve in the mixture, by the aid of heat, the remainder of the salts.
Mix the solutions and set by a few hours, covered, to deposit the sulphate
of calcium which is formed. Filter into bottle containing the remainder of
the syrup, wash the residue with an ounce of boiling water, mix filtrate
and washings with the syrup; dissolve the glucose in the mixture, and add
through the filter enough water to make two pints. The formula would be
improved by substituting for the glucose, a refined extract of malt like
that prepared by Gebe, in Germany. The proportion of the medicinal
ingredients in the syrup it is true is small; I shall not warrant it to
perform miracles of cure. It is simply offered as a substitute for
Fellow's Hypophosphites; whatever therapeutic efficiency that nostrum has,
we may count upon obtaining equally from this syrup.

The above, about four pints, would cost about $1.00.
