Mouth Pastils for Smokers (1873)

Take of

Fresh-roasted coffee (in fine powder) …. 1 1/2 ounce

Chocolate (do.) …. 1 1/2 ounce

White sugar (do.) …. 1 1/2 ounce

Vanilla (do.) …. 1 ounce

Charcoal (recent; do.) …. 1 ounce

Mucilage of tragacanth (to mix) …. q.s.

The preceding, sucked ad libitum, are used to sweeten and perfume the breath; the last also acts by chemically deodorizing it. They are great favourites in the fashionable world among smokers.
