Horlicks. Be on guard against cold and sickness with this highly digestive food.
Abner has been going through domestic troubles at home. The plan to gain sympathy by faking being hit by a car is working well, maybe too well. Abner is having trouble keeping his lies straight, but the whole town is buzzing about the accident. Lizabeth does seem to have Abner back in her good graces, but how long do the boys need to keep up this scam? Lum has a new business proposition that he is keeping under his hat for now.
Horlicks. Taken as a hot drink, it’s the answer for a sleepless night.
PS: Designed as a food for infants, and those recovering from illness, Horlick’s probably does act as something of a comfort food. Offering substance to an empty stomach to settle it. The digestion process then would cause a person to relax and become drowsy, while being easy to digest at the same time. But what about other claims that are made in the advertising hype? It’s mostly just that, hype.
