  1. (continued from previous page)
    fifteen minutes or as soon as it gets cold, remove it and apply another. Keep repeating this and in a short time the boils ripen, burst and all the bad matter leaves them, and very soon they shrivel up and finally disappear.
    Note - a poultice made in the same way of a boiled turnip will also draw a thorn out of the flesh or bone no matter how far in it is.

  2. When a person gets a deep cut he should get comfiy and wash it and pound it up and make a plaster of it, place it on the cut and it will fasten there and can not come off until the would is quite healed.
