Attention is called to the advertisement on another page of Mrs. Thomas Reynolds, Agent for Revigator Water Jar

From Google:

The Revigator was intended to add radioactivity (radon) to drinking water. Water without redioactivity was “devoid of its life element.” Water without radioactivity was like air without oxygen

 

The glazed ceramic body of the jar has a porous lining that incorporated uranium ore. Water placed inside the jar would absorb the radon released by decay of the radium in the ore. Depending on the type of water, the resulting radon concentrations would range from a few hundred to a few hundred thousand picocuries per liter.

Advertised as “an original radium ore patented water crock,” it sold in the hundreds of thousands between 1924 and 1930.                        — RG
