America's Beauty Doctor and Dermatologist
A vase of pure gold s-.ld to a silver cup: "I am made ol more precious metal-1 am more
valuable than you." Was that conceited: boasting ?
If Edison should say, '•! have made the most wonderful invention the world ever saw,"
would that be empty braggiug ?
II a merchant has really bet er goods than his competitor, is not tbe buying public inter
ested in knowing the fact ?
Titers has been so much quackery and charlatanism In my profession, that I foel com
pered tc make those remarks to obtain a fair consideration for what follows. For our mutual
benefit, remember that truth is often more remarkable than fiction.
I wish to say, plainly and simply, that I am the most competent dermatologist ami
specialist in beauty culture in America; have delvea most deepiy in the subject and made it a
science, and guided by scientific knowledge bars comooundel remedial which, for effective
ness, are unequaled in the world
I am the only doctor of beauty culture who can illustrate the merit of her preservative
remedies in her own person. I use my curative remedies. Though approaching 40 years, I
have retained the smooth, fresh, velvety complexion and youthful appearance —I should per
haps soy the youth—ol twelve or fifteen years ago.
l'lease do not confound me with women who have claimed as much, and palmed off artifi
cial make-ups and footligiu effects upon a hall dubious, half believing audlcn c, I absolutely
guarantee my cla ms, and invite the fullest investigation. Come and see me nt my parlors
see the testiinouy of hundreds of San Francisco ladles whom I have served, and to whom I have
referred with much honest pride.
I give youth to the aged, beauty to Ull plain and blemished face, health to tbe sick, when
natural loveliness is obliterated by tbe impaited functions of nature.
If you can't come to see me, I can treat you Buccessfully by mail for all face blemishes. I
also make the finest toilet articles, sold In Los Angeles by drugjlstt.

Mrs. Nettie Harrison,
40-43 Geary Street, San Francisco, Cal.
A pretty woman called at the residence
nf Wllllan K. Vanderbllt, Fifty-second
itreet and Fifth avenue, Tuesday evening
and Insisted upon heing ushered Into the
presence of the millionaire.
She was not more than 30 years old and
said she had come all the way from Phil
adelphia. She persisted in ringing the
door-bell and for more than two hours she
stood on the stoop in vain. The next
morning she returned and was arrested.
The woman Is well-educated and It Is
thought her condition is due to over-study.
Shortly before 7 ocloek there was a vlg- j
orous ringing of the doorbell at Mr. Van- j
rjerbilt's residence-. The servant who re- j
sponded found a young woman, fashion- 1
ably attired, at Ihe door. She was about ]
to enter the vestibule when the servant j
asked her whom she wished to see.
"I have business with Mr. Vanderbllt. l
Wish to see him at once," she said.
She was asked for her card, hut she told
the servant to lead the way into Mr. Van
derbllt'l presence and she would follow.
The actions of the woman Impressed Ihe
servant as being peculiar. She held a note
in her hand which she; said she would send
to Mr. Vanderbllt in case she could not
see him.
This note the servant took and asked the
young woman to wait on tho stoop. He
The servant finally told the woman that
Mr. Vanderbllt could not ho seen. She then
went away and the servant thought that
was the last he would hear of her.
Hut she returned the next morning at
(1:15 ocloek and again rang the bell. Ernest
Kverhardt, the caretaker .responded. He
found Ihe woman standing on the stoop anel
shouting through a speaking tube.
"What are yon doing here." he asked.
"I am speaking to Mr. Vanderbllt at a
distance. I must see him in person.
She refused to leave the sloop. Ever
hardt then summoned Patrolman Diehl.
The general appearance of the woman im
pressed the policemen, and he questioned
her before taking her into custody.
"I am a representative of influential pen
pie," she said. "How do you make it your
business to Inquire what my business with
Mr. Vanderbllt may be?"
When she was arraigned in the police
court she said:
to Mr. Vanderbllt and was told to wait. I
"I did no wrong. 1 simply sent my name
waited and returned the next morning."
She said she was Miss Estelle Bu minister,
and that she had come all the way from
Philadelphia to nee Mr. Vanderbllt.
She smiled when questioned regarding
her age. hesitated and then said that she
was about 30 years old.
"I am a secretary to a very rich gentle
man and also a stenographer. 1 have been
in this city but a few days and will return
to Philadelphia just as soon as my business
here is transacted."
She was sent to Bellevue hospital to have
the question of her sanity determined, and
her sister. Mrs. M. A. Horton. arrived from
Philadelphia to take her home. Mrs. Hor
ton said her sister had been acting queerly.
but not violent, ho no watch was kept on
her. She had been away from home three
days, and a friend who read of the Vander
bllt escapade telegronhed the family.—New
York Evening World.
There are no friends like old friends.
And none so good and true;
We greet them wheu we meet them.
As roses greet the dew;
No other friends are dearer.
Though born of kindred mold:
And while we prize the new ones,
We treasure more the old.
There are no friends like old friends,
Where'er we dwell or roam,
In lands beyond the ocean.
Or near the boundsof home;
And when they smile to gladden,
Or sometimes frown to guide.
We fondly wish those old friends
Were always by our side.
There are no friends like old friends.
To help us with the load
That all must bear who Journey
O'er life's uneven road;
And when unconquered sorrows
The weary hours Invest,
The kindly words of old friends
Are always found the best.
There are no friends like old friends,
To calm our frequent fears.
When shadows fall and deepen
Through life's declining years;
And when our faltering footsteps
Approach the Great Divide,
We'll long to meet the old friends
Who wa.it tbe other side.
