    Re: Yucca Pit

    Hicks Capudine was a highly successful proprietary medicine made in Raleigh, NC. I suspect that the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906 spelled the end for this product as it did for so many others. But, the manufacturers were still hanging on in 1910. Here's an account from a Raleigh C of C prospectus from that period.


    Capudine Chemical Co.

    The Capudine Chemical Com-
    pany of Raleigh manufactures and
    places wilh the retail druggists
    throughout the country Hicks'
    Capudine, and other medicines of
    proven value. Hicks' Capudine
    had been made and sold for some
    years and had been so successíul
    that it was thought advisable to
    put it on the market through the
    retail drug trade of the country.
    This remedy is a liquid cure for
    headaches and neuralgia. It is
    pleasant to take and has therapeu-
    tic effects, making a cure by re-
    lieving the cause. The Capudine
    Chemical Company also puts up
    several other well-known prepara-
    tions. The leaders are "Hicks"
    Huckleberry Compound," "Dr. Na-
    gles' Prescription for Coughs and
    Colds," "Hicks" Castoline" ( a
    pleasant castor oil), and "Dr. Na-
    gles' Kidney and Liver Pilis."
    The officers of the company
    are: President, Ashley Home, of
    Clayton, N. C, a prominent bank-
    er and manufacturer; vice-presi-
    dent, J. R. Chamberlain, who is
    also president of the Raleigh
    Phosphate Company and vice-pres-
    ident of the Neuse River Mills. He
    is also postmaster of West Ra-
    leigh. The secretary-treasurer and
    general manager of the company
    is Henry T. Hicks, who was born
    near Raleigh and has spent nearly
    the whole of his life in this city.
    He is also president of the Henry
    T. Hicks Company, owners of two
    of Raleigh's most prominent drug
    stores. Mr. Hicks was the origi-
    nator of Hicks' Capudine and
    other remedies and is a licensed
    pharmacist. He is a member of
    the Chamber of Commerce and a
    director on that bodv.
    Sometimes I go about pitying myself, and all the time
    I am being carried on great winds across the sky.
