MY MOTHER WILL TELL YOU TO GO AND GET 3 (OR MAYBE 7) STONES.
EACH ONE SHE RUBS OVER YOUR WARTS. AND IN SO MANY DAYS THEY
WILL GO AWAY. AND THEY ACTUALLY GO AWAY.
WHEN I WAS 7 OR 8 I HAD A SEED WART AND MOTHER COULDN'T
CHARM IT OFF. HER POWER WOULDN'T WORK IN THE IMMEDIATE
FAMILY. SO I WENT TO A LADY WHO TOOK A BLACK THREAD AND
MADE A LOOP WITH IT AND PUT IT AROUND THE WART AND DREW
IT TIGHT. SHE TOLD ME TO LEAVE IT ALONE AND IT WOULD GO
AWAY. AND IT WAS GONE IN A WEEK OR TWO.
