I REMEMBER MY MOTHER USED TO RUB GOOSE GREASE ON OUR THROATS
WHEN WE HAD THE MUMPS. NOW I'M NOT SAYING THE GREASE GOT RID

Submitter comment: MY INFORMANT WAS SLIGHTLY UNCOOPERATIVE AND DISINTERESTED.
MY INFORMANT THINKS SUPERSTITIONS ARE SOMEWHAT SILLY.

COULD BE FOUND BY GOING TO THE LIBRARY.
MY INFORMANT THOUGHT THAT THE ITEMS SHE GAVE ME WERE NOT
IMPORTANT AND WERE NOT FOLKLORIC.
