Next take a quick warm bath, afterward rubbing the spine well with eaji de cologne. Next the face is to be gently washed in water softened, with bran as hot as can be borne, then sluiced off with cold water to which , a dash of toilet vinegar has been added, j To .brighten the eyes give them a bath j by means- of a teacupful of slightly ! salted tepid water. Dress with delib eration, and if possible have some one do your hair for you if you do not keep a maid. It is a great aid to a successful toilet to have all your things laid, out ready, so that you do not have to rummage In bureau drawers or turn out boxes or fumble in closets at the last minute. Whatever you are going to need, in the way of clothes, stockings, shoes, hand kerchief, gloves, fan, etc should be where you can lay your hand on them vsrhen you want them.
