The pride of woman is her beauty
of face and figure. It is a pardonable
pride, too; in fact, it is her duty to
look as attractive as nature will per
mit. But the more naturally beautiful
a woman is, the less artificial means
are required. Natural beauty comes
from natural health, aild, though beau
ty is said to be only skin deep, mucn
of it really depends upon good, pure
blood and healthy organs. For those
occasions when nature fails, a writer
in the Family Doctor suggests the fol
lowing prescription for both married
and single women, asserting that it is
the best tonic for the complexion.
purifier of the blood and strengthener
of the vital organs. Here is the for
mula: Fluid Extract of Black Haw, :
ounce; Alpen Seal, 2 ounces, and pure
water, 5 ounces. These can be bought
separately at your druggist's and mix
ed together in an 8-ounce bottle. Take
a teaspoonful three times a day and at
bedtime for several days before., dur
ing and after the period. It is claim
ed by the publication named that there
is nothing to equal the above as a reg
ulator, a tonic and a skin bcautifier,
and is within the reach of all women,
as it costs little to make up. More
over, as the ingredients can be pur
chased separately and mixed in pri
vate at home, the recipe is likely to
appeal to every woman of modesty.
Alpen Seal is the happy outcome of
years of experiment. It contains no
alcohol and can therefore be taken by
young girls as well as by older wo
men. Ail good druggists make up the
Alpen Seal prescription, but if the
druggist does not keep it, have him
get it from the pharmaceutical house.
