Chinese Woman's Cbmplexion.
A. French expert has been giving
his attention to what ho calls "the
exquisite complexion of the Chinese
women." This, he claims, is not due
to enameling, as is generally sup
posed, but to careful manIpulation of
the face by most expert masseuses.
They begin by a gentle pinching of
the cheeks between the til)S 'f their
fingers, an operation that consuntes a
period of ten mInutes. sThen lotions
are applied by means of absorbent cot
ton; then comes an unguent, and there
follows a kneading of the cheeks with
an extreme delicacy of touch, always
proceeding from the nose and commis
sures of the lips toward the ears.

emptied the cork comes to the neck
and causes an obstruction, preventing
the flow of the liquid. T'his can be
avoided very readily, and nil that is
needed is to bendl a piece of stiff iron
