Wyeth’s Sage and Sulphur Compound

The January 18 1924 Toronto Globe contained this ad for Wyeth’s Sage and Sulphur Compound.

The Hair Raising Stories website has a brief entry on this compound. It was apparently trademarked in 1909, and the company was fined in about 1921 because its brand name was misleading. I have no idea whether it worked or not, but there is no modern equivalent, so I assume it was either unsafe or ineffective.
