skin softener and complexion beautifler,
by squeezing the juice of two
fresh lemons into a bottle containing i
three ounces of orchard white. Care j
should be taken to strain the juice i
through a fine cloth so no lemon pulp
gets in, then his lotion will keep fresh I
for months. Every women knows that I
i lemon juice is used to bleach and re- J
I move blemishes as sallowness, freck-;

ener, smoothener and beautifier.
Just try it! Get three ounces of
i orchard white at any pharmacy and
51 two lemons from the grocer and make
: up a quarter pint of this sweetly fra1
