Thcro is no uso in saying this will
bo a heart to heart talk. Hearts
arc out of fashion. At least, everyone
who has a henrt seems to keep it
hidden, padlocked or sufficiently
camouflaged to escape public notice,
and those who have not taken any of
theso precautions seem to have had
theirs stolen, broken or lost alto
gether, so there is no uso talking
about heart talks on any subject.
Paces are different. Everyone
now-a-days"seems to havo face
enough for anything. For example,
somo beauty writers have the face to
recommend all kinds of lotions and
experiments of which they themselves
nro totally ignorant.
A few days ago I was in conver
sation with one of the most famous
beauty specialists in the United
States. Ills offices arc in New York,
lie hod just come out to the coast
on a business trip and to see a pa
tient in Los Angeles. When I told
him of the many letters of inquiry
which I received from women who
really need expert advice, he said :
"Well, whatever you do, never rec
ommend practices and prescriptions
just for the sake of telling people
something. There has been more
harm done by the publication of
harmful receipts in so-called beauty
columns than anyone realizes. Two
thirds of my patients at one time
were women who had practiced what
well-known newspaper woman at
symptoms differed. Yet those same
pcoplo will risk their hair, their Ven
tures, their complexions and even
their eyesight lo try any uniqno
beauty prescription which chances to
como their way.
"Even steaming tho face with hot
cloths and using pumice soap is in
jurious in somo cases. I have known
many women who have seriously in
jured their complexions by this seem
ingly harmless practice. It all do
pends upon whether or not it at is tho
treatment which that particular face
up 'tis. If you can only make people
realize that fact you will have ac
complished a result well worth while.
"The same may bo said of tho
care of the scalp. Thin, weak, faded
and bleached or gray hair is often
merely the natural result of fancy
shampoos or soaps not intended for

that time was preaching through the ' Wonting, poor circulation, face shine,
columns of her paper. The effect
of this ill-advice was so injurious,
and so hopeless in some instances,
that I finally communicated with the
editor of the paper, and told him
that if it was not stopped I would
take drastic measures to stop the
flow of injurious advice to the ig
norant. "There aro remedies good rem
edies," the doctor continued, "but
as a rule they aro not successful

Most of the letters of inquiry which
I receive must be answered person
ally, for the very reason that what
is suitable for one woman will not
do for someone else. Another rea
son is that I like to be free to recom
