  1. Cure for nettle sting: Rub the affected parts with a dock leaf.
    Cure for a sty in the eye: Rub the sty with a gold wedding ring and say, "In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. amen."
    Cure for jaundice: Boil a worm in milk for mine mornings. Then strain off the milk and drink it.
    Cure for warts: Whatever number of warts you have, put the same amount of stones in a bag of stones on the first cross-roads you come to.
    Another cure for warts: Put the same number of stones in a bag as you have warts + whoever rattles it will get the warts.
