The Evolution of
The modern patent medicine busi
ness is the natural outgrowth of tho
old-time household remedies.
In the early history of this country,
EVERY FAMILY HAD ITS HOME
MADE MEDICINES. Herb teas, bit
ters, laxatives and tonics, were to be
found in almost every house, com
pounded by the housewife, sometimes
assisted by the apothecary or the fam
ily doctor. Such remedies as picra,
which was aloes and quassia, dis
solved in apple brandy. Sometimes a
hop tonic, made of whiskey, hops and
bitter barks. A score or more of pop
ular, home-made remedies were thus
compounded, the formulae for which
were passed ulong from house to
house, sometimes written, sometimes
The patent medicine business is a
natural outgrowth from this whole
some, old-time custom. In the begin
ning some enterprising doctor, im
pressed by the usefulness of one of
these home - made remedies, would
take it up, improve it in many ways,
manufacture it on a large scale, ad
vertise it mainly through almanacs
for the home, and thus it would be
come used over a large area. LAT
TERLY THE HOUSEHOLD REMEDY
BUSINESS TOOK A MORE EXACT
AND SCIENTIFIC FORM.
Peruna was originally one of these
old-time remedies. It was used by
the Mcnnonites, of Pennsylvania, be
fore it was offered to the public for
sale. Dr. Hartman, THE ORIGINAL
COMPOUNDER OF PERUNA, is of
Mennonite origin. First, he pre
scribed it for his neighbors and his
patients. The sale of it increased,
and at last he established a manufac
tory and furnished it to the general

and its value in thetreatnient of these
ailments. They have learned to trust

When today’s difficulties overshadow
yesterday’s triumphs and obscure ths
bright visions of tomorrow’s, when
plans upset and whole years of effort
seem to crystallize into a single hour
of concentrated bitterness, when little
annoyances eat into the mind very
quickly and corrode the power to view
things calmly, when the jolts of mis
fortune threaten to jar loose the judg
ment from its moorings, remember
that in every business, in every ca
reer, there are valleys to cross, as well
as hills to scale; that every mountain
range of hope is broken by chasms
of discouragement, through which run
torrent streams of despair! To quit
In. the chasms is to fail. See alwaj-3

PLEASE OMIT FLOWERS.
Three Words in Death Notices Mean
a Lot to Florists.
“Please omit flowers.’’
Those three words added to an ob
ituary notice deprive the florists of
Chicago of about SIOO,OOO a year.
Some of the larger establishments
that cater to a fashionable trade are
hit harder than the small concerns,
but there is no florist in the city who
does not feel the loss entailed by
the three words quoted above.
“There were about 30,000 deaths in
Chicago last year.” said a MaS-ison
street florist, “and at least one-tenth
of the death notices printed informed
friends to ‘please omit flowers.’ When
some person of note dies and flowers
are to be omited at the funeral the
big florists are out all the way from
$25 to SIOO each. Those who request
that flowers be omitted are the very
ones whose friends are well able to
purchase floral tributes, and would
otherwise do so. Many persons come
to me in the course of a year to
order a wreath or some floral design
for a funeral, not knowing that the
‘please omit flowers’ has been pub
lished with the death notice. All the
florists in the city have the same ex
perience, and I estimate that our
losses In the year amount to $100,000.”

“Upon the limbs and between the toes
my skin was rough and sore, and also sore
under the arms. I had to stay at home
several times because of this affection. Up
to a week or so ago 1 had tried many other
remedies and several doctors, and spent
about three hundred dollars, without any
success, but this is to-day the seventh day
that I have been using the Cuticura
Remedies (costing a dollar and a half),
which have cured me completely, so that
I can again attend to my business. I went

by the Cuticura Remedies within a week.

The Change of Life
Sensible Advice to Women from Hrs. Henry Lee,

Owing to modern methods of living
not one woman in a thousand ap
proaches this perfectly natural change
without experiencing a train of very
annoying and sometimes painful
This is the most critical period of
her whole existence and every woman
who neglects the care of her health
at this time invites disease and pain.
When her system is in a deranged
condition or she is predisposed to
apoplexy- or congestion of any organ,
the tendency is at this period
likely- to become active and with a
host of nervous irritations make life a
burden. At this time also cancers
and tumors are more liable to form
and begin their destructive work.
Such warning symptoms as sense
of suffocation, hot flashes, headaches,
backaches, melancholia, dread of im
pending evil, palpitation of the heart,
irregularities, constipation and dizzi
ness are promptly heeded by intel
ligent women who are approaching
the period of life when this great
change may be expected.
Mrs. Fred Certia, 1014 So. Lafayette
