WHEN BECOMING BLOOD SISTERS, EACH PERSON TOOK SOME SMALL
TREASURES (RINGS, PENNIES, ETC.) AND PUT THEM IN A GLASS
JAR AND BURIED THE JAR IN THE WOODS OR ON THE SIDE OF THE
ROAD, THEN MARK THE PLACE BY A PILE OF STONES OR APPLES, ETC.
WHICH IS PARTIALLY BURIED. WHEN THE PACT IS BROKEN UP ONE
OF THE TWO PEOPLE DIG IT UP AND RETURN THE TREASURES TO THE
OWNER, THUS THE SISTERHOOD IS BROKEN.
