SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 288,630, dated November 20, 1883, Application filed April 19. 1883. (No specimens.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FURNEY F. GREEN, a citizen of the United States, residing at O0- manche, in the county of Comanche and State of Texas, haveinvented a new and useful Medical Compound, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to medical compounds for internal application in diseases of sheep and other animals, and it is especially de signed to cure the sheep disease known among sheepmen as lombriz.
My improved compound consists of the following ingredients, which are compounded in about the proportions stated,to wit: wormseedoil, one-halfoiiiice oil of turpentine, one-fourth ounce; castor-oil, one-halfounce; tincture of myrrh, one dram; common" molasses, six ounces; pulverized bark of blackmalder,w(P-ri- 7108,) one ounce; pulverized white Indian-hemp root, (Apocynum cannabinum) one ounce; pulverizcd bitter root, (Apocynum androsoemzfo- Mum) one ounce; pulverized pinkroot, (Spigelia,) one ounce; pulverized mandrake-root, (Mandmgora ofiicinaha) one ounce; powdered or pulverized balmony, (Ohelone glabrta) two ounces; Socotrine aloes, two drams. In compounding the above ingredients the first five are placed together and are thoroughly mixed by agitation or other suitable means, after which the remaining ingredients are added to the compound thus formed, and the whole mixture is mixed by agitation or other suitable means. The compound is then ready for use.
This remedy is to be given to the animal internally, in doses from one tea-spoonful to one table-spoonful, according to the age and strength of the animal.
For example, if an old sheep should be weak, from disease or 0 other cause, one tea-spoonful would be a dose; but in young and strong sheep one table spoonful should be given as a dose. These doses are to be given from four to six hours apart, and continued until the compound acts freely on the bowels, and should be given for three or four days after this action of the bowels takes place, until entire relief is secured. But one or two doses should be given the last days.
My improved compound will be found very efficient in the relief and cure of the disease mentioned, and it acts very quickly and without dangerous effect.
, I claim as my invention The herein-described compound, consisting of the following ingredients, compounded in the manner and in about theproportions specified, to wit: wormseed-oil, oil of turpentine, castor-oil, tincture of myrrh, common molas- 6o ses, pulverized bark of black alder, (Prinoa) pulverized white Indian-hemp root, (Apocynum cannabimam.) pulverized bitter-root, (Apocynum androsccmifoliumQ pulverized pinkroot, (Spigelim) pulverized mandrake-root, (lllandragom ofiicinalz's,) powdered balmony, (Ghe- Zone glabm,) and Socotrine aloes,;for the purpose set forth.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto aflixed my signature in presence of two witnesses.
