  1. (continued from previous page)
    would be crying, if your right hand was itchy you would get money. When you meet a funeral on the road you should turn back and walk a few steps with it.
    If a person brought salt out to the field, and if any of it was left it would not be right to bring it into the house again.
    If a person falls it is right to put a grain of salt in their mouth. If you took a coal from the fire it is right to put a sod of turf in its place. If you had two spoons in your cup you would be going to a wedding.
