DISEASE CURES

A DIRTY SOCK WORN "ROUND THE NECK" ON GOING TO BED WILL CURE A
SORE THROAT.
A BUCKEYE CARRIED IN THE POCKET WILL CURE RHEUMATISM.
ASSAFETIDA WORN AROUND THE NECK IN THE WINTER WILL
KEEP DISEASE AWAY.
BLOOD STOPPING WAS USED BY PEOPLE WHO CLAIMED THEY COULD
STOP THE FLOW OF BLOOD. IT ORIGINATED IN THE LUMBERJACK CAMPS,
WHEN SERIOUS INJURIES WERE RECEIVED BY THE LUMBERJACKS AND PERHAPS
SEVERAL DAYS BEFORE THEY COULD GET TO A DOCTOR.
