THE ? .AgHHreTOar TIMES, SUNDAY, APRIL 14, 1895.
14 Prominent People Employ Well-known Residents of the Careful of Their HERE Is no excuse in this century for anywomau toloso her youth and beauty as the fleet ing years go by that is, if Eho has the time and mon ey to spend to re tain her pietty Ionics. And tho progressive genius of man, while it cannot lengthen life, can at least add a great many years to preserv ing the most of its freshness. Of course, there is no place in the world where this science is carried to such per fection as it is in Paris, but our American ladies are rapidly catching up with Uie Trench and one can find in Washington as many excellent "I'cauty-doctors," as they may be called, as in any place of its size in the world. Perhaps the most patronized place of this kind is the one "where my lady has her dainty hands manipulated till they look as fresh and white as those of a baby. Of course, such an improvement will not come all in one treatment, but most ladies of wealth and fashion have their mani curing done about once a week and -when there is some especial entertainment, such as a ball or dinner, they take an extra sitting. The operation is very simple and con sists of whitening and cleaning the hands, paringand pushing the nails ami trimming away all such excrescnccs as "hang-nails" and giving a pretty soft, well-cared for look to the hands. MATTIE MITCHELL'S BEAUTIFUL -" HANDS. MaUie Mitchell, the beautiful daughter of the Seuator from Oregon and now the Duchess de Rochefoucault, was very fond of having her hands manicured, which -was not strange, as they were beautiful ones. All the ladies t the cabinet of ex-Presi-deat JIamson and his family went regu larly to the mani"re, though the operator would go to the "White House -when Mrs. Harrison wished her hands attended to, white the others of the family -would come to the room of the manicure. Mrs. Ilarrl 6u had small, pretty, well-shaped hands and so had her daughter, Mrs. McKee. vm Levi I' Morton lias, hanosome plump bands, andisa pood patronof themanicure, bat probably the most beautiful hand ever in "Washington was that of the present Lady Lumley, of England, once the wife of one of the attaches of the British legation bore. Col Freye, now the president of Switzerland, -when he was here as the minister from that country, went regu larly to have his hands put in order, for they wore handsome ones, and he was very proud of their beauty. Betty Ordway, now known on the stagt as "Bottine Gerard," had beautiful hands and exquisite nails. The Countess DIvonne, formerly Florence Audenreid, of this citj has lovely, sort, white hands that were regularly treated, and Adelc Grant, tiow the Ooantess of Essex, can boast of hatida of winch a queen might Iks proud. It is very common among the rich belles to have the feet submitted to the same process and some of our girls have the toes as prettily trimmed and polished as their handB. BEAUTIFYING TURKISUBATHS . Tarklsh baths are the next thing to claim the attention, as they are not only healthy, bat very beautifying. One of the fash ienable baths in the city has a very laige claes of patrons and sometimes as many as 100 people will come in a day. The proceBS of steaming and cleaning is Tery delightful and conduces to a good cir culation and cures many forms of ailments. FIVE SE1B0LD FIVE 3 BATHS Mine. Itomero. wire of the Mexican min ister, is a great patron of the bath, and Mrs. Gen. Sheridan is a weekly visitor. Sonator "Wn&hburne enjoys nothing more than bathing, and Senator Gibson is equally as fond of the exercise of the plunges and rubbing. Mrs. Crisp, wife of the Speaker or the House, is an mvanu, and she took the baths as a help for her rneuniati&m, from which she is a great suf ferer. Bishop Hurst Is a devotee or the bath, and bo ib Dr. Milburn, the "blind chaplain of the Senate " Emmett, whenever he came to the city, would frequent the place, and thought nothing or taking two baths a day, making as merry as a lord during the whole process. Robert Lincoln, when in the city as a member of the Cabinet, went regu larly to the Turkish baths, and Miss Bay ard, who died so suddenly a few years ago, was devoted to them. The Japanese and Chinece that belong to the legations in town drop in occasionally for a plunge, and the Awifetant Secretary of State and bis wife, Mrs. Uhl, are weekly visitors. "Sunset" Cox took a bath in the rooms once a week, and Mrs. Damrobch, for merly Miss Margaret Blaine, was a regu lar patron. Asa rest to tired nerves, worn out bv the press of social dutlics, the hot sponging is delightful, and it is no wonder that society ladies find it so beneficial. STEAMING THE FACE. If my lady's face is beginning to show the "footprints of time,"orlate hours cause to fade the once ruddy glow in her damask cheek, she goes to a facial treatment doctor and has herself put through the process of "steaming." If her complexion is very bad as a result of champagne and salads 2&sis5., . ?:' -S-rvr-'i Tfr.r"frw ; oBiCijrwvM.. MT JL N. X v 8 .v - .Krr.w -v.

This is followed by n rubbing of the skin with oils and ointments, and y;iieii my lady cornea out after a week's treatment her face is as pretty and pink, as that of a baby. Many of the fashionable ladies frequent the facial doctors, but no names in such a matter arc ever made public. Then, there are regular surgeons in tho city whose business lies in the direction of ImproWng on the efforts of nature. If a nose Is too large it can be made smaller by taking a little piece out at the nostril, and it will heal without a scar. It the ear is not to one's liking it can be changed. Blackheads can bo eliminated from a face, and any dieriguring hair, which a woman is always ashamed of, can bo doue away with by an electiio needle. Birthmarks can be removed, and one of the Cabinet ladies in the city has had the operation performed on herself to re move one. Bed noses, which are gener ally due to indigestion, can he cured by applications, and hosts of ladies troubled with tills affliction seek the surgeon's aid. MEN AS VAIN AS "WOMEN. The men are as bad as the women, and many gentlemen come to have any hair above the beard line taken off and their Bklns treated till they look better than they did before the operations were re sorted to. The hair-dresser drives a good trade, for nearly all fashionable ladies have their heads champooed at least once in a mouth. Some of the rich ones have their heads dressed every day during tho gay season and others only when they are going to an entertainment. It is a common thing for dames to drive to the shop and have their tresses fixed, but the wealthier ones send for the woman to STEAMING HER FACE. come to their house, for which service she charges a correspondingly high price. Reddish hair is the fashionable tint, and the French woman who has a shop in town does a good deal of work in brightening the heads of the gay dames. False hair Is now demanded by fashion's decree and a great deal of it is sold to thoso to whom nature has denied a proper supply. Mrs. Cleveland, during her former stay, used to have a lialr dresser fix her head, but now the work isdoneat home. There are some pretty parlors run by ladies with French names and who have diplomas of their skill on the walls, ladies whose entire timo is devoted to steaming faces, manicuring the hands, rubbing oils into the dry Bkm and eliminating wrinkles by a massage treatment that is guaranteed to remove the objectionable things in a short while. The surgeon can make the wrinkles disappear by a cutting that takes up tho skin and by the contraction prevents a sagging line. But these ladies say that by steaming, and oils and rubbing the same erfect can bo produced. Hence so many society women attend the parlors, though they are very careful to keep their names a secret and exact such a premise from the person in charge One rich lady In the fashionable quarter of tho city has brought tho pro fessional steamer to her house, and one of the cabinet ladies is a regularpatron tohavo her hair improved m its glossy appearance. Three prominent Senators' wives make a regular visit to tho parlors and if tho names on the books wore open to the public it would be a genuine surprise. MASSAGE IS DELIGHTFUL. Massage is one of the most popular and healthful fads of the hour, and it has many patrons and many professors in the city. Most of the best doctors recommend the treatment to their patients and as a con Eequcnce some of the massageurs have more than they can do to meet their en gagements. "When one is convalescent or the brain is tired by social duties or over work, the soothing sensation of the gentle rubbing of tho muscles is very delicious and will soon quiet tho most refractory headache in the world. Mrs. Joseph Pulitzer always takes the treatment when she comes to "Washington and Mrs. Lockwood, wife of the Congress man, also took the course while here. The ladles who wish to have the treatment, re main at home and the woman who applies it comes and works for about an hour. Of course, It Is expensive. In fact, any woman whowisuestotakethevanousthingsthatare given as healthful and beautifying appli cations, must have a good fat purse. tK5Sl--.vK. .. rl"iLr' ' 'sk -is,'5ssc 'i-?1! - :'jj; ?T"ft ,ita.i9xnJ-""ri kyr-i . ..rr'-.n-.- -- $&$ jgsSHKjg?4' OUR EAT i SAL Is about to make its exit, and be fore its departure will introduce to our trade an entire new de partment, mention of which was made a few days ago.
