Health and Beauty Answers
BY MRS. MAE5 MARTTN
V. S. S.: Your hair will never
grow long, thick and lustrous while
you use soap for shampooing. The
alkali in soap is too strong for the
delicate hairs, causing them to be
come dull, brittle and faded. If you
will wash the hair about twice a
month with a teaspoonful of canthrox
dissolved in a cup of hot water,
rinsing thoroughly afterwards, you
will find your hair softer, fluffier and
more brilliant than ever before. The
hair dries quickly and evenly with
out streaking or dullness. Canthrox
cleanses perfectly removing all dirt
and dandruff and relieves scalp irri
Delia; Peroxide will make the
hairs less noticeable, but if you really
want to remove that growth from
your cheek, apply a paste made with
powdered delatone and water. Af
ter two or three minutes rub it off,
wash the skin and your cheek will
be firm, white and hairless. Drug
gists will charge a dollar for an orig
inal package of delatone, but it is
worth several times its cost, as it
Discouraged: Your baby needs
some food other than malted milk.
If she continues thin, fretful, peev
ish and anaemic she certainly is not
receiving sufficient nourishment.
Barley babies are strong, robust and
faturdy. Get from your druggist a
small can of F. N. Johnson's espe
cially prepared pure barley flour and
take a tablespoonful, mixed with cold
water to a thin, smooth batter, add
one pint boiling water, salt to suit,
boil and stir well five minutes, then
add half pint milk, stir well and
feed through nursing bottle. There
is no more nourishing food to be had
for the baby; and it is not only tbe
beet, but the lowest priced.
Rose: Lack of exercise and eating
too much solid food during the win
ter months account for your sallow,
pimply complexion and lost energy.
You can best overcome this condition
by taking a good system tonic and
t!cod purifier, made by dissolving
one ounce kardene in half pint alco
hol, then adding half cup sugar and
hot water to make a quart. Take
a tablespoonful before each meal and
in a short time you will feel like a
nsw person; your sallowness will
give way to a rosy, healthy complex
ion. This simple blood purifier is a
wonderful energiier and cannot be
recommended too highly as a relia
ble system tonic.
Mrs. T. C: No one can afford to
neglect bis or ber eyes. If you want
bright, clear, beautiful eyes that will
be much admired, you can have them
with very little care. Get an ounce
of crystos at any drug store and dis
solve it in a pint of water. Put two
cr three drops of this tonic in each
eye daily and you will be surprised
how it will strengthen your weak,
tired eyes and make them strong,
healthy and sparkling. Many occu
llsts who use this simple tonic get
excellent results in treating eye
troubles generally. It is very sooth
ing and has enabled many to dis
pense with wearing glasses.
Miss Juliet; No wonder the other
young people avoid you when you
have your face smeared with paint
and powder to cover up your freck
les and other complexion defects. If
you will use this lotion you will find
proper relief and nobody can tell but
that your complexion is perfectly
natural: Dissolve four ounces spur
max in half pint witch hazel (or hot
water), then add two teaspoonfuls
glycerine. Apply to the face, neck
and arms, rubbing gently until dry
and your skin will take on a very
charming look. This lotion is much
better than powder as it removes
that shiny, oily look to the skin and
does not rub off easily. It is the
finest skin whitener and complexion
beautifier I ever used.
Delia C: The longer you put off
fat reduction, the harder and firm
er the tissues will become and the
less easily dissolved. The most ef
fective, harmless remedy known to
science is made by dissolving four
ounces of parnotis in 1V4 pints hot
water. By taking a tablespoonful
before each meal, you will soon note
a most satisfactory disappearance of
your fat without any injury to your
health. No dieting or violent exer
cises are necessary with this won
derful remedy. It leaves the skin
smooth and unwrinkled.
Mrs. G. C: Hair specialists agree
that a quinine hair tonic is far su
perior to any other kind for remov
ing dandruff, stopping falling hair
and promoting a healthy growth of
lustrous hair. However, the tonic
will be worthless if not fresh made.
You can prepare a splendid quinine
tonic by mixing together half pint
alcohol and one ounce qufnzoin, then
adding half pint cold water. This
is unexcelled for remedying scalp
and hair troubles and tbe only sat
isfactory -hair grower I have ever
Dora: If you want a complexion
cream that will ndt grow hair or
make the skin shiny and oily, pet
an ounce of almozoin, two teaspoon
fuls glycerine and stir into half pint
cold water. This cream-jelly is good
for and prevents chapping, and Is
very cleansing, healing and soften
ing to the skin. Use morning and
nigbt and you will soon note a won
derful improvement in your com
plexion. This dependable beautifier
will tone your skin, stimulating the
youthful glow In your face, which
comes only from a smooth, clean,
