Belief: Animal

Horse-Taming:

"Hints for the farrier. To tame a wild horse, haltre him and then take the warts from the leg and dry them and pulverize them. Blow the dry powder up the horse's nose. Then take oil of radium and drop a few drops in your hand, rub it over his nose. This will make him follow you and the animal will do anything you wish. I paid Perry Plancher $20 for the secret."
