Old Cures.
There is a cure in a dog's tongue. If you got a deep cut on your hand or foot and put grace on it and let him him lick it, it would be better in three days. There is also a cure in a dandelion. If you got a burn of hot water and put the duce of the dandilion on it, it would be better in nine day's time. There is a cure in a piece of chickenweed. If you had a sore throat and put a piece of chickenweed on it, it would be better in a few days time.
