TO CURE A BOIL OR "RISEN":
YOU JUST RUN YOUR FINGER AROUND THE EDGE OF THE "RISEN"
AND THEN MAKE A CROSS WITH YOUR FINGER RIGHT IN THE
MIDDLE OF IT. THEN PUT YOUR FINGER IN THE DUST ON THE
GROUND AND TOUCH THE CENTER OF YOUR CROSS WITH THE END
OF YOUR DUSTY FINGER. IF THE "RISEN" AIN'T TOO FAR GONE
IT WILL GO AWAY INSIDE OF TWELVE HOURS. AND IFFIN' IT IS
TOO FAR GONE IT'LL COME TO A HEAD RIGHT AWAY. THE CORE
WILL COME OUT PLUM EASY. YOU'VE GOT TO BELIEVE IT
THOUGH OR IT WON'T WORK.
