The James T. Callow Folklore Archive
To cure a sore throat or a cold, sulphur powder
was placed on a feather. The feather was placed
in the back of the throat and the person administering
the treatment would blow the sulphur onto the throat.
Mrs. Wolf's mother routinely used this procedure when
she was growing up.
