Pioneer Remedies - Ague Many settlers suffered from a disease called ague. Symptoms were similar to those of the flu and included fever, coughing, chills, and achiness. One so called "cure" for this disease was to kill a chicken and hold it's body against the patient's bare feet while he or she swallowed a ball of cobwebs!
