When I say Aunt Millies Cookbook, not only am I talking food for the family. I am also talking stuff for the critters. Since they relied on their hogs, their cattle and chickens, they had to take care of them as if they were family. Here is a recipe for a hog cholera cure. NOT for human consumption. Just sayin……….
Hog Cholera Cure

Spanish Brown ¼ lb.
Black Antimony ¼ lb.
Carbolic Acid ½ oz.
Oil Rhodium 10 drops
Gum Asafoetide ¼ oz.
Cayenne Pepper 1 oz.
Water 1 gal.
1 pt. In 3 gal. of slop. Twice a day for 2 or 3 days a week.

1 Tsp. of salt to 1 gal. of water stops chickens from pecking and eating each other while closed in brooder house.
