Research Facts
In North America toilet paper did not appear until 1857, when American Joseph Gayetti introduced “paper for the water closet.” Given that pages from free catalogues were readily available, he needed a marketing gimmick. The “health gambit” fit the bill. Gayetti claimed that Americans were ruining their physical and mental health by wiping with printed paper that had “death-dealing” chemicals such as lampblack, oxalic acid, oil of vitriol and chloride of lime. His “Medicated Paper” was “pure as snow” and may have included aloe. Unlike catalogue paper, it wouldn’t cause hemorrhoids and “would cheat physicians out of their fees.” When flush toilets became more common, he cleverly changed the pitch to “this paper will dissolve so that it will not like ordinary paper choke the water pipes.”

Polson & Co. became widely known across North America as a druggist and chemical manufacturer. One of their products, Catarrhozone, was widely advertised as an inhaled germ-killer and remedy for all respiratory ailments. The Vapor treatment was meant to be dropped onto a small piece of wool held inside the portable wood inhaler, then inhaled periodically through the mouth. Polson went on to become mayor of Kingston in 1893.
Their trade covered Canada, the U.S. and the West Indies.
The firm was established by Neil Polson Sr. in 1877, owned a wholesale drug and manufacturing chemist house in Kingston, Ontario. and was taken over by his two sons, Neil Jr. and Henry. They made medicines under the name of Polson Co., the Catarrhozone and Nerviline.

Research Facts
Early 20th century house call bag for the general practitioner
The H. K. Mulford Company was a pharmaceutical company founded in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The company was founded in the late 1880s by Henry K. Mulford after his purchase of the Old Simes drugstore at 18th and Market Streets. The company was purchased by Sharp & Dohme Corp in 1929.
Henry Kendall Mulford (October 10, 1866 – October 15, 1937) was a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy.
Soon after purchasing the Old Simes retail pharmacy store, Mulford began producing and selling pharmaceutical preparations. In 1889, he received financial investment to expand operations from Milton Campbell. In 1891, Campbell became president of the company, with Mulford vice president. Milton patented a compressed tablet machine. By 1892 the company had two laboratories, a field office in Chicago, and produced 800 different products.
The company opened a laboratory in Glenolden, Pennsylvania, in 1894 for the production of a diphtheria antitoxin. In 1895, it became the first commercial producer of diphtheria antitoxin in the United States.
