\ SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 432,611, dated J u1y 22, 1890.

Application filed December 27, 1889. Serial No. 335,136. (No specimens.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, \VALTER R. HALL, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city and county of San Francisco, State of California, have invented a new and useful Composition of Matter to be Used as a Salve, of which the following is a full specification.

My composition of matter consists of the following ingredients combined in the proportions stated: Iodoform, one ounce; oil cajepu't, one ounce; oxide of zinc, one pound; carbolic acid, two ounces; olive-oil, one gallon.

In compounding the above, I have found it ties, while the olive-oil is used as a base. Now, on account of the intensely disagreeable odor of the iodoform and carbolic acid, I found, only after full experiment, that I could disguise them by the use of oil of cajeput, which not only accomplishes this result but imparts to the compound an agreeable odor.

The salve is to be used externally as a dressing for wounds, cuts, burns, 01d sores, itching-piles, salt-rheum, and other eruptions of the skin.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

The composition of matter herein described to be used as a salve, consisting of iodoform,

oil cajeput, oxide of zinc, carbolic acid, and

olive oil, in substantially the proportions stated.

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
