adding 2 teaspoonfuls glycerine. This
will whiten and refine your skin. It
takes away that oily, shiny look better
than powder and does not show or rub
off so leasily. This lotion will clean
your complexion and give to it a whole
some, charming tone, also affording
the skin splendid protection from
chapping In the wind.
Mrs. f. B.: To have a head of per
fect hair you must keep your scalp
absolutely clean and free from dan
druff. If you will shampoo twice a
month with a tea spoonful of canthrox
dissolved in a cup of hot water, rins
ing thoroughly with clear water, you
will find your hair will always be
fluffy, bright and clean. This sham
poo is so far superior to others that
the best class of hairdressers use it
almost exclusively. It makes the hair
dry quickly without any signs of
streaking, brittleness or other had ef
fects which are caused by using soap.
There is nothing like it for removing
dandruff, cleansing the hair and giving
to it that much-desired flufflness and
C. P.: Your pimples, sallowness and
hollow cheeks are due to a run-down
condition of the body. The only way
to remove these ills is to clear your
blood of Its impurities. Dissolve one
ounce kardene and 4 cupful sugar in
pint alcohol, then add hot water to
make a quart Take a tablespoonful
before each meal. This Is a splendid
system tonic end will soon restore the
look of perfect health to your face, fill
out your cheek3 and give you the en
ergy and ambition which only a healthy
person has. It is a wonderful blood
purifier, energlzer and liver regulator.
M. D. : You can make your hair grow
In thick and abundant by rubbing into
the scalp twice a week the following
tonic: Mix together pint alcohol, 1
ounce qulnzoin and V pint cold water.
This will show better results in a Bhort

There is nothing better for treating

Mrs. R: It Is a very simple matter
to remove every trace of hair from your

on hairy surface, and in two or three
minutes rub off. wash the skin and he

painless and certain way in (which to

Mrs. M: Do not cut tie eye-lashes.
Instead, apply a little pyroxin to lash

eyebrows can be made to grow In thick

Juanita: The cost of fat reduction
need not be high. If you will buy 4

excess fat will soon be gone. No

A. I. M.: I do not Mite to recom

likely to cause hair to grow on your
