THE Snake OIL Role

Match And Fable Inc. Boston , MA 02108

In 1854 Clark Stanley was born in Abilene, Texas. He claimed that after a decade as a cowboy, he spent two years studying under a Hopi medicine man in Arizona. During his apprenticeship , Stanley claimed he was introduced to the unique, medicinal properties of snake oil.

Stanley soon began peddling his own version of Snake Oil Liniment at medicine shows across the Southwestern USA. A consummate showman Stanley would stand before a gathered crowd kill a few snakes and mix his potion. The mesmerized onlookers would inevitably open their wallets paying 50 cents per bottle (equal to $15 in 2018).

He claimed his cure-all treated a laundry list of afflictions from headaches to arthritis to sciatica!
The Rattlesnake King eventually established production facilities in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Short story shorter in 1917 federal investigators seized a shipment of Stanleys potion and determined it contained mineral oil, a fatty oil (likely beef fat), red pepper and turpentine and not a single drop of snake oil!

Stanley was fined $20 for misbranding" his product as a pain remedy and effectively disappeared from the public eye.
