The Evolution of
The modern patent medicine buai-
ne*s is the natural outgrowth of the
oid 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, dissolved
in apple brandy.
Sometimes a hop
tonic, made of whiskey, hops and bit
ter barks. A score or more of popular,
home-made remedies were thus com
pounded, the formulae for which were
passed along from house to hoose,
sometimes written, sometimes verbally
The patent medicine business is a
natural outgrowth from this whole

pressed by the usefulness of one of
these home-made remedies, would take

Peruna was originally one of these
old time remedies. It was used by the
Mennonites, of Pennsylvania, before it
was offered to the public for sale. Dr.
Hartman, THE ORIGINAL COM
POUNDER OF PERUNA, is of Men-
nonite origin. First, he prescribed it
for his neighbors and his patients. The
sale of it Increased, and at last he es
tablished a manufactory and furnished
it to the general drug trade.
Peruna is useful in a great many cli
matic ailments, such as coughs, colds,
sore throat, bronchitis, and catarihal
diseases generally. THOUSANDS OF
FAMILIES HAVE LEARNED THE
USE OF PERNUA and its value in
the treatment of these ailments. They
have learned to trust and believe in Dr.
Hartman’s judgment, and to rely on
his remedy, Peruna.
