Box 2, Bottle 69 Sloan's Liniment Kills Pain, 18 fluid ounces (actually it has the stuff in there)
Contents Note: Earl S. Sloan (1848-1923) from Logan County, Ohio, Earl Sloan, son of Susan and Andrew Sloan, was born and spent his childhood in a log house (the original no longer exists) directly across the street from the library. Not much is known about his childhood except that the family was poor and Earl did not complete his formal schooling. His father worked at the village livery and was a self-taught veterinarian who sold homemade horse liniment (it is supposed the natives supplied him with the original formula). Earl quit his schooling and apprenticed as a harness maker. In 1871, he took his father's liniment recipe and left Zanesfield for Missouri, where his brother traded horses. While working with his brother, Early began hawking the horse tonic locally. After finding it a good sale item, the brothers traveled to fairs and carnivals selling the liniment. At one point, they discovered that a man had taken the tonic for himself and had claimed it was good for man or beast. The slogan "Good for Man or Beast" was born. The liniment sold so well in Missouri that Early traveled to Chicago. He advertised his tonic in newspaper and on streets.
