'Old May's Ways..............................................................

At the first tickle of a sore throat add a tablespoonful

of vinegar to half cup hot water and gargle with it -
sore throat gone!

Rub a veroca on your foot with the inside of a banana
skin twice a day until it's gone!

For toothache put a few drops of tincture of myrrh on
a piece of cotton wool and apply to tooth.

For earache, dip a teasppon in boiling water, dry it, and add two drops of almond oil. Tip back your head to the side, and add the drops to the ear then add a piece of dry cotton wool.

To avoid cucumbers from being bitter to taste, before
use cut off one end, and rub back again with rest of
cucumber, and you will see the 'bitter sap' come out.
