1) If the blood flows regularly, a vein has been wounded, and a string should be bound tightly around
below the wounded part (beyond it from the heart). If the blood spurts or jets, an artery has been severed,
and the person may bleed to death in a few minutes; to prevent which apply the string above the wound (between
the wound and the heart).
2) It is said that bleeding from a wound, on man or beast, may be stopped by a mixture of wheat flour and salt, in equal parts, bound on with a cloth. If the bleeding is profuse, use a large quantity. It may be left on for hours or even days if necessary.
