100% a snuff jar, machine-made so it'll date to the 20th century. I'm not sure what was in those Wampole bottles, never seen a labeled one oddly enough, but they're incredibly common finds here in Canada. I don't see people in the US posting them nearly as much, I guess whatever it was wasn't quite so popular down there.
Sample bottle?
Speaking of Father Jon....lol I found him yesterday. And his friend Abe from 1939.
Correction my son found Abe.

Part of yesterday's finds.
Purex bottles from the 40's or 50's?
Several small lysol bottles, one is a cork top.
Dr Pepper and Coke bottles. These have Blytheville Ark on the base so I'm guessing they were made here.
Bail top Atlas and Ball quart jars, sans bail and top.
Midwest Dairy Products milk jar.
Dr Caldwell's Monticello IL, has a green tint.
Mason's Old Fashioned Root Beer.
Small listerine bottles, one cork one threaded.
Many cork and threaded medicine bottles.
Sloan's Liniment.
White's Cream Vermifuge, this was human worm medicine.
Bon Oil olive oil bottle, has a green tint.
Cheramy perfume, still has the top.
And a Cater's ink well.
I've still got a few in the truck to clean, but I think they're mostly more medicine bottles.

What do you use to repair them?
I thought this was intact, but when I washed the mud out the bottom fell off.

This one still has medicine in it if anyone isn't feeling well.

My first attempt at finding an older dump.
I used a book from around 1890 on the history of the county I live in plus a plat map I found online from 1898.
Using those I was able to find where Blytheville's founder had his original farm in the mid 1800's, not far from where I live and on the shore of a lake drained in the 30's.
I'm not certain where the home place was, but I can easily find what was the lake shore so I began searching there in what is today a large field.
In no time I was able to find lots of glass fragments, quite a bit of naturally irritated and aqua, some blue Mason glass.
I probed around not finding exactly where the source of everything was.
I suppose some could be buried deep enough to survive years of chisel plows.
I'm going wait for several rains, they just plowed, and see if I can narrow down a likely source for the fragments.
I did find another Armour's bottle, that makes 3 and an aqua McElree's Cardui from The Chattanooga Medicine Co in another dump on the present lake.
I left an old half of a black bottle that was very heavy I meant to bring home to help date the dump. Maybe next time.
