Face Powder In Cnbn.
In Cuba there has never apparently
been any dearth of face powder even
among tbo lowliest. The Cuban wom
an, octogenarian as well as "sweet sev
enteen," considers powder a more neces
sary article of tbo toilet than soap and
water and utterly indispensable to her
attractiveness, which it Is her absolute
duty to preserve. All classes of the
community are devoted to the powder
puff, from the little six-year-old orphan
in tho asylum to the lady of high de
gree. In any Cuban school teachers
nnd pupils are alike unsparingly pow
dered, nnd u powder box Is to be found

In the nimm." Plutarch notlcad it and
even wrote a whole book about the face

other objects are supposed to bo visible.
The dark markings on the surface arc
likened by the Chinese to a monkey
pounding rice. In India they arc said
to resemble a rabbit. To the Persians
thoy seem like the earth's oceans and
