I'm excited to add the small box (a cube, 3 to 4 inches a side) to my collection as it represents a new "method of delivery" among the therapies I've collected: teas, pills, syrups, bitters, and now: Blosser's cigarettes (100 to the box)!
Below are photos of the box and some period advertisements (one from the Atlanta Constitution, 1902, and the other from a London newspaper- Lloyd's Weekly News - 1913)
Fortunately, we know something of Dr. Blosser, as he is the subject of a biographical sketch in History of the Descendants of Christian Wenger (1903), an excerpt of which is below:
Government chemists found the cigarettes to be composed of chamomile, anise, cubeb, and pepper.
Apart from the (dubious?) medical properties of the cigarettes, Dr. Blosser endured significant troubles when he was accused of participating in a "testimonial brokers" racket - wherein various quack medicine vendors sold each other testimonial letters and mailing lists - detailed in Samuel Hopkin Adams's Great American Fraud: Articles on the Nostrum Evil and Quackery (1912). Blosser protested his innocence but Adams was able to produce a goodly number of letters.
