Corn Picker Corn Remedy:
Colorful advertising box for Corn Picker Corn Remedy from the Scientific Foot Treatment Company, Chicago, Illinois. Cardboard box with slide tray has interesting image of a red bird (perhaps a woodpecker) standing on an ear of corn with a corn kernel in its beak. Below the bird it says “Takes them out without a doubt”. On the right-hand side of the top it states “Contains 1 Per Cent “Cannabis Indica” and other ingredients.” The back of the box has instructions for use. The outer slide box is in fair-good condition with some soiling and wear but no breaks or tears. The inner slide-out cardboard tray has two corners broken but could be repaired from the inside if so desired by the new owner (displays fine as is). The slide tray still has two corn pads and the file for roughening up the corn. The box measures 2.5” x 1.5’ x 0.75”. Graphic and unusual early corn remedy made more desirable by the fact that it contained cannabis indica.
