Pinkham’s Sanative Wash // LIQUID FORM // This valuable article has been on the market for the // last thirty years, and has been used quite extensively with // very beneficial results. The only objections to it has been // its form – it has always been put up as a dry herb-packet // which required steeping and straining before it could be // used. If any prefer this form, either because they // have become used to it or for any other reason, they can // still obtain it in the old style. // Apply once a day as a vaginal injection // (or douche) by means of any good fountain syringe. It // is best first to take a cleansing douche. // For this purpose // use warm water in which has been dissolved powdered // borax (one heaping teaspoonful to a quart of water), or //as much castile soap as you would use in washing, or // ”Paxtine” according to the directions on the package. // The Sanative Wash is useful not only in cases of grave // ailments, but is of great value to check slight disturbances // of the secretions, to which nearly all women are liable // at one time or another. // The discharge from the nose caused // by a cold in the head is familiar to all. it results from an // inflammation of the mucous membrane. But the mucous // membrane exists in other parts of the body, particularly // those to which the Sanative Wash is especially intended to // be applied, and is there liable to a similar affection by which // a similar discharge is occasioned. Whenever this appears, // it should at once be checked and prevented by the use of // the Sanative Wash. Just as a neglected cold in the head be- // comes chronic, taking the form of catarrh, so does this dis- // charge, which is known as Leuccorhoea, or more popularly // "the Whites." // There should be no delay in treating this discharge, as // besides uncleanness and discomfort the irritation caused by // it may bring about ulcerations and other serious conditions. // price, twenty-five cents per bottle. // LYDIA E.

Research Facts
Speci-Fix was a urine preservative distributed by Ingram & Bell Limited; it was sold as compressed tablets and was marketed directly for use in medical laboratories and hospitals; it was used to preserve urine samples that could not be analyzed immediately, especially those that needed to travel by mail; the formula was capable of preserving the sample without interfering with testing procedures.
Ingram & Bell Limited was a medical supply company first established in Toronto in 1905; the company became a Canadian leader in the distribution of medical products; their wide selection included equipment, surgical tools, and pharmaceuticals; as the company grew, they established branches in Montreal, Winnipeg, Calgary, and Vancouver; became Ingram & Bell Inc. and 49% owned by MDS in 1986; MDS acquired 100% in 1993; became Source Medical Corporation after merger with Allegiance Healthcare Canada Inc. in 1997; acquired by Cardinal Health Canada Inc. in 2005.
Owens-Illinois Glass Company introduced its “I in O” logo in 1954 and it was used into 21st Century; “2” code to the left of the logo on bottom of bottle indicates it was manufactured at the Huntington, West Virginia factory, which operated from 1930 – 1990; basal stippling was introduced in 1940s.

Research Facts
A revolution counter. To count revolutions of the shafts that ran machinery, engineers used counters like this one. The manufacturer, L. S. Starrett Company of Athol , Mass., called the device a speed indicator, although it has no timekeeping apparatus. The steel counter has a flat handle on one side and a rotating cylindrical rod on the other. In between is a flat curved case on which a dial is mounted. Pressing the rod against a rotating shaft rotates it and advances the dial. The edge of the dial is divided into 100 equal parts, which are numbered from 10 to 100 by tens. Two different nozzles fit into the far end of the cylinder. The instrument fits in a red, white, and black paper box.
his counter is one of the many inventions of Laroy Starrett (1836-1922), who was born and raised on a farm in Maine. In 1880, having successfully patented and sold a meat chopper, as well as shoe studs and hooks, Starrett established a business in Athol, Mass., to sell drawing instruments and small tools. He applied for a patent for a speed indicator in 1895, and received it in 1897.
patent to L. S. Starrett Company when it was granted March 28, 1905. The device sold in at least three models. This is No. 104, which was particularly intended for high speeds. It was sold both directly by Starrett and through distributors of tools and steam engine equipment. This speed indicator is mentioned in Starrett catalogues into the 1930s.
