Medications from the Past

 Interesting  Medications from the past

  Bayer's  Heroin

A  bottle of Bayer's heroin. Between 1890 and 1910 heroin  was sold as a non-addictive substitute for morphine. It  was also used to treat children with strong  cough. 


 Coca  Wine

Metcalf  Coca Wine was one of a huge variety of wines with  cocaine on the market.  Everybody used to say that  it would make you happy and it would also work as a  medicinal treatment.  

Mariani  wine
Mariani wine (1875) was the most famous Coca wine of its  time.  Pope Leo XIII used to carry one bottle with  him all the time.  He awarded Angelo Mariani (the producer) with a Vatican gold medal.  


Produced  by Maltine Manufacturing Company of New York ..  It  was suggested that you should take a full glass with or  after every meal.  Children should take half a glass.  


A  paper weight

A  paper weight promoting C.F. Boehringer & Soehne (  Mannheim , Germany ).  They were proud of being the  biggest producers in the world of products containing Quinine and Cocaine.  


Opium  for Asthma



Cocaine  tablets (1900)

All  stage actors, singers teachers and preachers had to have them for a maximum performance.  Great to "smooth"  the voice. 


 Cocaine  drops for toothache

Very  popular for children in 1885.  Not only they relieved the pain, they made the children  happy! 


Opium  for new-borns

I'm sure this would make them sleep well (not only the  Opium, but 46% alcohol!!!!!) 


And we worry  about aspirin for children today???

Kiddie prayers...

A Dog named Faith.

This is 'Faith'.
(Circulated now in detail)

This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002. He was born with 3  legs -
2 healthy hind legs and 1 abnormal front leg which had to be  amputated.
He of course could not walk when he was born. Even his mother did not want him.
His first owner also did not think that he could survive and he was thinking of 'putting him to sleep'.
But then, his present owner, Jude Stringfellow, met him and wanted  to take care of him.
She became determined to teach and train this little dog to walk by himself.  
She named him 'Faith'.

In the beginning, she put Faith on a surfboard to let him feel the movement.  

Later she used peanut  butter on a spoon as a lure and reward  

for him for standing up and jumping around.  

Even the other dog at home encouraged him to walk.  

Amazingly, only after 6 months, like a miracle,  

Faith learned to balance on his hind legs and to jump to move forward.  

After further training in the snow, he could now walk like a human being.

Faith loves to walk around now.  

No matter where he goes, he attracts people to him.

He is fast becoming famous on the international scene and  

 has appeared on various newspapers and TV shows.

There is now a book entitled 'With a Little Faith' being published about him.  

He was even considered to appear in one of Harry Potter movies
His present owner Jude Stringfellew has  given up her teaching post and plans to take him around the world 
  to  preach that even without a perfect body, one can have a perfect soul'.

In life there are always undesirable things, so in order to feel better  

you just need to look at life from another direction.

I hope this message will bring fresh new ways of thinking to everyone  

and that everyone will appreciate and be thankful for each beautiful day.  

Faith is the continual demonstration of the strength and wonder of life

A small request: All you are asked to do is keep this story circulating.


Farm dog saves baby pig

Abandoned piglet is lost and hound:

Giant farm dog saves baby pig's bacon by adopting it as one of its own

A giant farm dog and a tiny piglet cuddle up as if they were family after the baby runt was dismissed by its own mother.

Surrogate mum Katjinga, an eight-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback, took on motherly duties for grunter Paulinchen - a tiny pot-bellied pig - and seems to be taking the adoption in her stride.

Lonely Paulinchen was luckily discovered moments from death and placed in the care of the dog who gladly accepted it as one of her own. Thankfully for the two-week old mini porker, Katjinga fell in love with her at first sight and saved her bacon.

And the unlikely relationship has made the wrinkly piggy a genuine sausage dog. In these adorable images Paulinchen can even be seen trying to suckle from her gigantic new mum.
The two animals live together on a huge 20-acre farm in Hoerstel, Germany, where Katjinga's owners Roland Adam, 54, and his wife Edit, 44, a bank worker, keep a pair of breeding Vietnamese pigs.

Nose place like home: The baby piglet nuzzles up to its new mum
Property developer Roland found the weak and struggling piglet after she was abandoned by the rest of her family one evening after she was born.
He said: "The pigs run wild on our land and the sow had given birth to a litter of five in our forest.
"I found Paulinchen all alone and when I lifted her up she was really cold.

Feeding time: Piglet's new canine mother has no problem providing milk for the youngster
"I felt sure some local foxes would have taken the little pig that very night so I took it into my house and gave her to Katjinga.
"She had just finished with a litter of her own, who are now 10 months, so I thought there was a chance she might take on the duties of looking after her.

"Katjinga is the best mother you can imagine. She immediately fell in love with the piggy. Straight away she started to clean it like it was one of her own puppies.
"Days later she started lactating again and giving milk for the piggy. She obviously regards it now as her own baby."
Mum of the year? Quite possibly.
