Odd Beliefs About the Cure of Cancer
and Mumps
Yes I am heartily glad that execu
tion by hanging is passing out of ex
istence said the jailer of twenty five
years service Not only was hang
ing by the neck a grewsome hor
rible affair to me but it was always
followed by a host of requests for a
bit of the rope with which the hanging
was clone Of course these requests
came mostly from ignorant people but
they were no less of a nuisance on that
account Oh no they didnt want bits
of the rope for morbid reasons but
because they firmly believed in the old
Riinorstitffvn flint n nf vnno nwil in
on the affected part None of them
ever came back to report whether a
cure was effected but I reckon if there
had been any cures I would have
heard of them
That isnt the only rope superstition
by the way In Maine where I came
from some folk always use hempen
rope for the mumps A piece of it Is
tied around the waist of the sick per
son so that the disease will not creep
to any vital part but remain in the
face The superstition is observed by
a few people of this day and if you
go into small remote country towns
in Maine you will see hempen ropes
hanging in the corner grocery store
bearing a label Ropes For Mumps
