I found this bottle last week and haven't had a lot of luck figuring it out. By the size and shape I am guessing glue or ink, and early 1900s. Is that right? Appears to be machine made. Makers mark looks to be one of the following: "A I J", "A+J", or "A t J". Does anyone recognize that mark or know more about the age/application?

Looks like a generic medicine bottle, not sure what company the letters would stand for though.

Hard to tell with the top missing, but I agree with CanadianBottles… it appears to be a medicine. Where did you find it? Anymore/other bottles in the same vicinity?

Found it in a small ephemeral creek in an area that would have historically been a cattle ranch, near Kosse, Texas.
