Subject: What product originating 100 years ago in Odebolt is still sold today?

The product is CornHuskers Lotion. It is on the web at <a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="http://www.skinhelp.com/conaffairs/cornhuskers.shtml.">http://www.skinhelp.com/conaffairs/cornhuskers.shtml.</a>

Cloid Smith's Chronicle obit dated October 19, 1939 states: "In 1891 or 1892, he engaged in business as a druggist, locating in the building now occupied by J. A. Engstrom's Drug store, which was a new building at that time. In November 1898, he manufacatured and shipped Husker's lotion, the noted remedy for corn husker's sore hands, by the gross to druggists in Kansas, Nebraska, ----.".

Cloid sold his trademark registered in 1898 to Ernste manufacturing chemists located in Iowa City. That was in 1913. The selling price was $20 plus royalties.

A sister of Cloid's wife was married to my great Uncle Henry Petersmeyer. Hence my interest in the remarkable Cloid! - Bud Frevert
