For those with small children

> Here’s a fun little advertisement from a Bristol, Rhode Island “wholesale agent” named N. C. Bedell for “Mother Bailey’s Quieting Syrup” for children (a rather sinister name, if you ask me), which “greatly assists the Child through the Months of Teething, always allays all Pain, reduces Inflammation, corrects Acidity of the Stomach, never fails to regulate the Bowels.”

It rather sounds like a cocktail of fermented prune juice mixed with some sort of antacid. Figuring out the actual ingredients would be interesting.
