IN THE 1920'S, THE ADLERIKA COMPANY OBTAINED THEIR PATENT FOR THE MEDICINE THEY INVENTED IN
1902, AND PATENTED IT AS '
ADLER-I-KA '.

IT WAS ORIGINALLY INVENTED TO TREAT APPENDICITIS PRIOR TO THE FORMATION OF THE ' FOOD AND DRUG
ADMINISTRATION '.

THE NAME ADLERIKA WAS INVENTED AS A ADAGE FOR ' DR. ADLER'S CURE FOR APPENDICITIS ', BUT WAS
BEING MARKETED AS A
MEDICINE FOR GAS IN THE STOMACH OR BOWEL, AND AS A CURE FOR CONSTIPATION AND HEARTBURN. THE
INVENTORS WERE
ACTUALLY CHARLES AND EARNEST WESCHKE ( WESCHCKE ) AND THEY WERE THE SONS OF DR. CARL
WESCHKE ( WESCHCKE ).
IT IS NOTED THAT THE DOCTORS DROPPED THE NAME ' DR. ADLER'S CURE FOR APPENDICITIS ', AND BEGAN
CALLING THERE
CONCOCTION ' ADLERIKA ' AFTER THE NEWLY FORMED ' FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION ' INFORMED
THEM THAT THEY COULD NO
LONGER USE THE WORD ' CURE ' IN THE MEDICINE'S NAME AS THERE WAS NO PROOF THAT THIS ' MEDICINE '
' CURED ' ANYTHING. IT
WAS FURTHER NOTED THAT THERE WAS NEVER ACTUALLY A ' DR. ADLER '.

THEY CONTINUED TO SELL THEIR POTION, ADVERTISING IT AS A TREATMENT FOR CONSTIPATION AND
HEARTBURN, BUT, IN 1944, THE
ADLERIKA COMPANY MET ITS DEMISE AND EVENTUALLY BECAME ' CHESTER-KENT, INC '.

ADLERIKA WAS A MINNESOTA COMPANY. IT WAS FOUNDED IN ' NEW ELM ', AND THEN MOVED TO ST. PAUL (
AT THE CORNER OF
FILLMORE AND WABASHA ).
