BITES

For insect bites: Soak whole balsam apples in whiskey. Apply the apple to skin

Charm for snakebite: If bitten near water, beat him to the water and dip the part bitten. That will remove the poison and the snake will die instead of you.

Charm: Cut open a black hen, and while she is still jumping hold her over the bite. When the chicken has stopped fluttering the poison will be gone

Medicine for Snakebite: The juice of plantain banana leaves applied to the wound

Charm: Have a *snake doctor suck the bite

Treatment: Burn a reed and let the smoke rise into the bite

* South Midland and Southern U.S. a dragonfly. Down South, the African American people believe the dragon fly brings dead snakes to life, and they call it snake doctor
