I-092 A10 nature - medicine: The sheep infections were cured by boiling the bark of an elm tree.When their eyes became white as a result of the infection, some lavender was cut to measure and it was inserted in the eye. Within a couple of days it began to get better because the puss started to come out. To get rid of a rash from the skin in the sheep sulphur with flour was applied.A heart stroke in humans was cured with bloodsuckers. They were placed on a vein and it swoll up as if it would explode.When they had a “punta” (a coin was placed inside a glass along with cotton soaked in alcohol and it was set alight to make the glass suck it in).There were vets at that time to help with the birth of the young animals.The pigs who were about to be born would choke to death inside because of the hair.How they saved them. When the cows had carbuncle, the back was opened and salt was put on.A heifer had a stroke. One vet told him to kill it and another one cured it.Those who lived close to Nature knew more about it, but they have all gone now.

SC-007a A02 America - jobs: Juan Cruz was in Euskal Herria last year. He found a big change and noticed how the Basque language has been lost in many areas.He went to Calafornia in 1925. He had already got three brothers there by then. They were a big family at home. Also, there was a practice then of escaping from doing the military service by going abroad. For these two reasons he took himself off to Calafornia. First he went to New York and from there to California. His brothers were not far off and a cousin took him to them. The first years were the hardest as he didn’t even have the language under control.He had his first health problem in 1950. He suffered a heart attack. It took a long time to get over the thing completely. In 1952 he bought sheep again and continued for four more years. But when he worked hard he would get the pain. The doctor told him not to sell the sheep but to get someone who could do the hard work for him. Later he worked as a wool buyer.
