1890 era thermometer Alaskan style

 One vial of quicksilver, one vial of good whiskey, one vial of kerosene, one vial of Perry Davis's pain killer. To use one would observe the congealing of the fluids in the order given.
 If  the quicksilver was frozen man leaving on trip would just smile, He still went with the whiskey  congealing, Hesitate ate kerosene congealing and dive back in his cabin if the pain killer was congealed.  That be the whole dog team night then.
