Cures

Toothache:
If one with a toothache puts a frog into his mouth, it would cure his toothache. Or if a dead man's finger was put on the sore gum it would cure it.
Neuralgia:
To sniff salt through the nose will cure neuralgia. Or to tie a stocking of warm salt around the neck is also a good cure.
