Teethaches:- never shave on a Sunday and you will avoid teethaches. For a very bad one go to a graveyard, pray for the souls of the dead beneath, chew well a handful of grass taken from near the grave, but do not swallow any of it, and the toothache will be cured.
Freckles:- daub each freckle with the blood of a bull. Buttermilk is also good.
To tame a horse:- whisper the Creed in his right ear on a Friday and in his left ear on a Wednesday. Continue to do this each Friday and Wednesday and the horse will become tame before long.
Rheumatism:- Wear an iron ring on the fourth finger of the left hand. Rheumatism will never attack you, then.
If you want money, carry about with you, the back tooth of a horse.
