This is a 4" tall cardboard container with an applied paper label, tin bottom and tin shaker top that held Dr. LeGear's Antiseptic Healing Powder for farm animals.  The product was manufactured by the Dr. LeGear Medical Company, St. Louis, Mo. U.S.A. The paper label has a wonderful graphic of a farmer applying the medicine to his horse.  Above the horse image it reads "IT HEALS QUICKLY AND KEEPS OFF THE FLIES".  The label is in very good condition showing only some age darkening from light soiling and a few light rubs (see photos). The container itself is structurally sound. On the bottom of the front it is priced "25 CENTS".   We have seen several of the sample size containers of this healing powder but never this particular 4" tall size with the horse graphic.  It is 4" tall x 1 5/8" diameter and is from the early 1900's.
