Gas in a beast
In Summer it happens often that a cow maybe come gassed. If so, all that is necessary is to get a briar with two ends in the ground. Cut this and tie around the beast - under her stomack and across her back in the name of the Fr Son & Holy Ghost.
In a similar manner for all cattle.

This is simple enough as all that is necessary is to get assess milk and give it to ailing person. The ailing person drink 3 sups in the name of the Fr., Son and Holy Ghost.
