PREFACE
The necessity of a thoroughly reliable formula book for ready reference will
be apparent to everyone engaged in the drug business or in any of its kindred
branches. Especially useful will be a formula book written and compiled by
one who has had thirty years practical experience in the laboratory.
It contains valuable recipes used by well-known firms engaged in the
manufacture of Pharmaceuticals and Druggists' Specialties. The formulas
given for perfumeries, toilet articles and flavoring extracts, are those used by
one of the largest firms in the United States, modified to suit the requirements
of the retail trade. i
The physicians' formulas are principally the prescriptions offered in com-
petition for prizes given by a well-known journal. They are revised, corrected
and commented upon by a distinguished physician, and are selected with the
view of being useful to the busy medical practitioner.
The formulae of the New York Hospital and the London Children's Hos-
pital, will, it is hoped, be found a useful addition to the medical library.
Full instructions and a complete line of formulas are given for preparing
compressed tablets, tablet triturates and granular effervescent salts, medicinal
lozenges, unofficinal pills, elixirs, solutions, emulsions, chlorodynes, anodynes,
anaesthetics, liniments, insecticides, garden and lawn fertilizers, cements, glues
and mucilages, marking, writing, copying and hektograph inks and pads, Infants'
food, teething, soothing and cooling powders, the various remedies for infantile
diseases are fully treated of. Recipes are also given for cleansing and scouring,
and cleansing preparations, furniture creams and polishes, metal cleaning and
polishing preparations, soap and soap making (on a small scale), deodorants
and disinfectants. To these are added a complete formulary of curry powders,
sausage and meat flavorings, Worcestershire sauces, digestive relishes, baking
powder of every variety, including alum, acid phosphate, cream of tartar
and tartaric acid, slow and quick rising, as well as flavoring extracts of standard
and superior grades, soluble lemon, soluble ginger, ginger ale and soluble tincture
of tolu, fruit flavors from the ethers and from pure fruit juices, syrups, root
beer and root beer extracts, shoe dressings and polishes, stove and grate
enamels, beverages and liqueurs, tasteless syrup of quinine, and formulas for
making goods similar to many of the leading proprietaries.
The formulas for the home treatment of Dipsomania are written by a
physician who has had several years of practical experience as house physician
in the Keeley Institute in Dwight, Illinois.
Of especial interest to retail druggists and to photographic amateurs, are
the articles on "How to do the photographic trade," and the way to make it
pay, the material to keep in stock, how to make the various chemical solutions
and developers, to take, print and mount photographs, how to prepare the
dark room, etc., etc., being a complete guide to the details of the photographic
art.

iv PREFACE.
The veterinary part of the work is very complete indeed, and embraces
valuable formulas for stock foods, condition powders, hog cholera remedies,
poultry powders, poultry tonics and bird remedies; to which is added a treatise
on the diseases of domestic animals and pets, horses, cattle, sheep, pigs, goats,
dogs, poultry, turkeys, geese, rabbits, pigeons and canaries, their treatment
and cure.
The article on perfumery is a practical guide for the manufacture of every-
thing connected with the perfumers' art, and written with especial care to
meet the wants of those who, with a very small outlay of capital desire to
engage in a pleasant, profitable business, and who do not desire to in-
vest much money in the venture until assured of success. Full instructions
are given for preparing the higher grades of handkerchief extracts usually sold
at #3.50 to $4.00 per pound; also a full line of formulas for making the cheaper
kind of goods from essential oils and tinctures. The latter formulas will be
found valuable in enabling the manufacturer to compete successfully with the
grade of goods offered at a low price by department stores. In this part of
the book are also added reliable formulas for colognes, cologne mixtures, bay
rums and bay rum mixtures, Florida waters, Florida water mixtures, lavender
water, violet waters, verbena and other toilet waters of pronounced excellence;
sachet powders, fumigating pastilles, solid or frozen perfumes, toilet powders,
infant powders, toilet creams, enamels, cold creams, camphor ices, freckle
creams, arsenical and other face lotions, milk of roses, cream of roses, frostilline,
shampoos, dandruff pomades, brilliantine, lip salve, shaving creams, stick
pomades, cocoanut cream, and many other toilet preparations that command
a ready sale.
The part devoted to preparations for the hair contains formulae for hair
colorers, hair dyes, quinine and jaborandi hair tonics, with explicit directions
for their manufacture.
The article on dental preparations comprises tooth powders, tooth pastes,
antiseptic tooth washes and dental obtundents, together with many other
formulas useful to the dental profession.
In the keen competition of these days there is an urgent demand for reliable
formulas fo compete with the great number of proprietary remedies in the
market, „ Substitution by unscrupulous parties of worthless preparations to
replace articles of acknowledged merit, is dishonest first, last and all the
time; but surely the druggist has a perfect right to compete with advertised
remedies by offering, praising and pushing the sale of his own preparations
when he makes them of good material and by a meritorious formula. Furthermore,
should he take pains to convince the physicians in his neighborhood of the
excellence of the goods of his own manufacture, and succeed in having them
prescribed, it surely comes under the head of fair business competition, and
cannot be objected to, unless by those who are so blinded by avarice that they
are unwilling to acknowledge any virtue in a preparation, unless they are
pecuniarily interested in the profits.
In the determined fight the druggists are making o gainst monopolies, a book
of reliable formulas will be of benefit in evening up profits. Bearing this in mind,
there is a good line of formulae inserted for the production of goods similar to
and in many cases superior to such well-known articles as acid phosphate,
ammonol, antikamnia, aristol, Ayer's sarsaparilla, Baby's quinine, beef, celery
and sarsaparilla, bismuth hair dye, blackberry brandy, blood and kidney tea,

While expressing my thanks and obligations to all sources from which I quote,
I am especially indebted to the Scientific American Encyclopedia for some of
its admirable articles on cleaning, scouring, photography, cements and insecti-
cides; to the Standard Formulary for its article on Elixirs; to the Pharmaceutical
Era, The Western Druggist, The London Chemist and Druggist, The Druggists'
Circular and to Scoville's Art of Dispensing, for many useful articles and
formulae.
I trust that it is not necessary to insist upon any claim to the average
degree of originality, for if the book does not bear the evidence of honest and
independent work by one familiar with the pestle and mortar, it is a defect not
likely to be removed by the most eloquent and argumentative of prefaces.

Clarke's Blood Mixture.
Clarke's Blood Mixture. — In 1875 a bottle of
this was submitted by Dr. Win. O'Neil to Dr.
A. S. Taylor for analysis. According to the
report of the latter, which was sent by Dr.
O'Neil to the "Lancet":
XOX-SECRET FORMULAS.
■•The quantity of the liquid contained in the
bottle was 8 ounces. It had a dark-brown
color, but was clear and free from any sedi-
ment. It had the smell of chloric ether (a
compound of alcohol and chloroform), and a
sweetish saline taste, which was not unpleas-
ant. Its reaction on test paper was alkaline.
On shaking it, it formed a brown-colored froth.
When evaporated to dryness it left a thick
dark saccharine extract, weighing, for the U
ounce, about 29 grains. When this extract'
was incinerated it left a white saline residue,
which proved to be iodide of potassium. The
brown coloring matter had the usual proper-
ties of burnt sugar (caramel). In addition the
mixture contained a small quantity of solu-
tion of potash, just sufficient to correct the
acidity of the burnt sugar. Alcohol and
chloroform (as chloric ether) were detected in
it. Arsenic, antimony, lead, copper, and other
metallic poisons were sought for, but the mix-
ture was found to be quite free from any
metallic impregnation.
'•The composition of the mixture was found
to be as follows in 8 ounces:
Potassium iodide 64 grains.
Chloric ether, B. P. ....... 4 drams.
Liquor potassae, B. P 30 minims
Water, colored with burnt
sugar to the requisite tint 7% ounces.
It is. nevertheless, the general opinion that
decoction of hemidesmus, or sarsaparilla, is
used in place of burnt sugar."

ALKALINE MIXTURES FOR D5TSPEPSIA.
Alkaline mixtures are best in cases of
atonic dyspepsia and ill-health. Alkalies in-
crease the flow of acid in the stomach, and
should be taken after meals. They are often
of special service in the dyspepsia of young
people, who complain of lassitude, backache,
