Categories: Patent Medicines and Secret Forumla
One green paneled bottle contains seven and one-half fluid ounces of a
brownish-yellow, semi-clear, very sweet, thickish liquid, of a tarry
odor, and pronounced taste and smell of chloroform. From a close
examination we have ascertained that an exactly similar preparation is
easily made In the following way:
Rub well together:--
Liquid Tar 5 grains
Fluid Extract Hemlock 1 fluid dram
Powdered White Sugar 2 ounces av.
Alcohol 1/2 fluid ounce
Aquae 1-1/2 fluid ounces
Molasses 3 ounces av.
Fluid Extract Ipecac 8 minims
Mix well and add finally
Chloroform 1 fluid dram
Mix. The above amount would cost about 25 cents.
