Home Remedy for Pneumonia
Take cow manure, boil it, strain it in a sieve, put sugar in
it. Drink and pneumonia will clear up. Boiling cow manure will
also keep evil spirits away.
James Callow comment:
"Tea made from the steeping of cow manure is a cure for
pneumonia" (Negro, East Cleveland, 1964); "... shyster tea"
(Negro, Cleveland, 1958) -- Puckett, Ohio, no. 10782.
