  1. (continued from previous page)
    tells her that they have dust which they wish to get removed from their eye, she goes to the room and says prayers and then comes down to the person again. When she comes down, she will take a mouthful of water and rinse her mouth with it and will then spill it out on a saucer and when the person looks in the saucer which contains the water, they will see the mote floating in the water and immediately all pain will be gone.

  2. Miss O'Hara has also a cure for a sprain. She makes a thread from tow which she binds round the part affected. Then she says prayers and when the thread is taken off, the sprain will be cured.
