Story of Mentholatum

Early in his career, young Albert Hyde showed ability to make money. Though he did lose money several times, yet his hands had a magic touch. Once he pledged God his tithe. Then he became interested in a salve or remedy for colds from which came “Mentholatum.” He did not forget his pledge, and as God shoved in, he literally shoveled out—until his name became synonymous with Christian giving.

He gave multiplied millions to the YMCA. At one time, all his income from Mentholatum in Japan was supporting a Japanese missionary work there. When he died at 87, this poor businessman had given a million-and-a-half dollars to missions.
