Old Cures
A child, whose father dies before she is born, has the cure of the dirty mouth.
The orphan child blows his breath on the child with the dirty mouth.

If a woman has the same name after she is married as she has before she has the cure of whooping cough. The person with the whooping cough eats some of the food left after a meal by the married woman who did not change her name in marriage.
