Hicks Capudine was a highly successful proprietary medicine made in Raleigh, NC. I suspect that the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906 spelled the end for this product as it did for so many others. But, the manufacturers were still hanging on in 1910. Here's an account from a Raleigh C of C prospectus from that period.

Capudine Chemical Co.

The Capudine Chemical Com-
pany of Raleigh manufactures and
places wilh the retail druggists
throughout the country Hicks'
Capudine, and other medicines of
proven value. Hicks' Capudine
had been made and sold for some
years and had been so successíul
that it was thought advisable to
put it on the market through the
retail drug trade of the country.
This remedy is a liquid cure for
headaches and neuralgia. It is
pleasant to take and has therapeu-
tic effects, making a cure by re-
lieving the cause. The Capudine
Chemical Company also puts up
several other well-known prepara-
tions. The leaders are "Hicks"
Huckleberry Compound," "Dr. Na-
gles' Prescription for Coughs and
Colds," "Hicks" Castoline" ( a
pleasant castor oil), and "Dr. Na-
gles' Kidney and Liver Pilis."
The officers of the company
are: President, Ashley Home, of
Clayton, N. C, a prominent bank-
er and manufacturer; vice-presi-
dent, J. R. Chamberlain, who is
also president of the Raleigh
Phosphate Company and vice-pres-
ident of the Neuse River Mills. He
is also postmaster of West Ra-
leigh. The secretary-treasurer and
general manager of the company
is Henry T. Hicks, who was born
2.near Raleigh and has spent nearly
the whole of his life in this city.
He is also president of the Henry
T. Hicks Company, owners of two
of Raleigh's most prominent drug
stores. Mr. Hicks was the origi-
nator of Hicks' Capudine and
other remedies and is a licensed
pharmacist. He is a member of
the Chamber of Commerce and a
director on that bodv.
