Kerry,
Your bottle is an early pharmaceutical (supplement) bottle from Peter Fahrney's company in Chicago, a large company (Peter was a millionaire in his day). I have a copy of his obituary (e-mail me privately, and I'll send it). There is a bottle collector's website that documents the bottles, and describes the formula "Alpenkrauter Blutbeleber" or mountain herb blood revitalizer. Evidently, Peter Farnie (either g-grandfather or gg-grandfather of this Peter) brought the formula with him when he immigrated from Switzerland. The other language may be Swedish, probably marketed to Swedish immigrants in Wisconsin, Minnesota, etc.
