When Cattle Are Bewitched

How do you know when cattle are plagued by witches? The hair stand on end, or bristle on the head, and they generally sweat by night or near dawn of day.

The cure:

Take Witchcraft Balsam, Glow Worm Oil, Black Juniper Berry, Oil of Rue, Oil of Turpentine, two cents worth of each. Give this mixture to the cattle; also, some Balsam of Sulphur.
