The Fort Dodge Messenger: June 23, 1904


Of Interest to Wives Whose Husbands Drink to Excess

Orrine quickly and permanently destroys the craving for liquor. You can give it without patient’s knowledge, if desired, in tea, coffee or milk, as it is tasteless, odorless and colorless. Price $1.00 per box — money refunded if it fails. Book free. Oleson Drug company. Fort Dodge, Iowa.

(Editor’s note: A search for orrine brings up a lot of things, including more advertisements like this one. I imagine it was some sort of snake oil remedy that may have had more than one name. I wonder how many people asked for their money back.)
