The Universal Household Assistant (UHA) - Hiccoughs

Today marks the beginning of a new segment on this blog pertaining to a book I bought a few months back. It is called The Universal Household Assistant and promises to tell you "what every person should know." What is so interesting is that the book was published in 1884. Some of the information is good, some very outdated and some quite laughable by today's standards. Every Sunday I will bring you an interesting tidbit that I find in my book. Enjoy!

To Cure Hiccoughs (Hiccups)

Take a small piece of lump sugar into the mouth and let it dissolve very slowly, or drink any liquid very slowly, and the hiccoughs will cease.
