Warts.
4. Catch a snail and lick it three times.

Then the warts will be cured.
5. When crossing a river if you come on a stone with a hole in it and a little water in the hole rub the water on the warts in the Three Best Names.
Search for two more stones of the same kind and do the same thing. If this is done for nine days the warts will go away.
6. If you cut two rushes and made the Sign of the Cross with them three times of the warts it will cure them.
