Colds on the Lungs
Make a poultice of onions fried in lard and lay on the Chest. Soak the feet in as hot water as can be borne and drink a glass of hot lemonade and, if you have it, a little senna tea before going to bed.
Physicians Remark Leomonade will cause sweating, senna will move the bowels, and the onions will loosen the cold by drawing the congestion from the lungs.
Skunk Oil Applied to the throat and lungs, this is a good remedy for a cold on the lungs. Sometimes it is given internally in small doses.
Poems are from a song book, hand written and found at the Spahr Farm which we believe were written during World War
