A Good Idea

How to Remove Pain and Soreness from Wounds. The value

of the smoke from burned wool to remove the pain and soreness from

wounds of all kinds, or from sores, is great, and it will give

immediately relief from the intense pain caused by a gathering. The

easiest way to prepare this is to cut all-wool flannel--if you haven't

the wool--into narrow strips, take some hot ashes with a few small live

coals on a shovel, sprinkle some of the flannel strips on it, and hold

the injured member in the smoke for five or ten minutes, using plenty

of flannel to make a thick smoke. Repeat as often as seems necessary,

though one smoking is usually enough.
