SOCIETY "GUIDES,"
HOW WRITTEN.
This Is Explained in a New Novel ll
lnstratißE Life in New Tori
' A Bright Chapter That Tells How Books Are
Prepared for Those Who Are Not in the
Swim and Who Want to Get in.
Edward Eggleston lias written a new
novel, entitled "The Faith Doctor," in
which he introduces some characters in
iociety and some who are trying to get In.
The following is from the first installment,
which appears in the February number of
the Century," and it refers to the hero of
the story, Charley Alillard, who is endeavor
ing to get into New York society, and who
studies a " Guide to Good Manners as Rec
ognized in the Very Best Society," by one
of the 400.
It chanced about this time that Sampson
brought an old college chum of his to eat a
Sunday dinner at the bonrdinc-house in
" Eighteenth street. He introduced this
friend to Millard, with that impressivenes3
which belonged to all that the melancholy
Sampson did, as " Mr. Bradley, Mr. Harri
. son Holmes Bradley, the author; you know
his writings."
Millard was covered with concealed shame
to think that In- did ml happen to know the
books of an author with a name so resonant,
bnt he did not confess Ills ignorance. This
was his first acquaintance with a real liter
ary man— lor the High Scho>l teacher in
Cappaiiocia who wrote poetry for the coun
try papers would hardly count. The aspir
ing Millard thought himself in luck in thus
early making the acquaintance of a niau of
. letters, for to the half-sophisticated an
author seems a person who reflects a mild
and moonshiuy luster on even a casual ac
quaintance. To know Mr. Bradley might
• be a first step toward gaining access to the
more distinguished society of the metropolis.
Harrison Ilclmes Bradley proved to be,
• on examination, a New Englander of the
gaunt variety, an acute man of thirty, who
- ate his roast turkey and mashed potatoes
' with iLat avidity he was wont to manifest
when running down an elusive fact in un
encyclopedia. At Hie table Millard, for want
of other conversation, plucked up courage
to ask him whether he was connected with
a newspaper.
"X<>. 1 am engaged in general literary
work," said Bradley.
Neither Millard nor any one else at the
tabh- had the faintest notion of the nature
of "general literary work." It founded
large, and Bradley was a clever talker on
' many themes fresh to Millard, and when he
• went away the author exacted a promise
from Charley to call on him soon in his
"den," and he gave him a visiting cud which
bore a street number in Harlem.
Two weeks later Millard, who was quite
unwilling to miss a chance of making the
acquaintance of . >-:
a DISTINGUISHED MAN'
Tiiroiiuli whom he might make other eli
gible friends, called on Bradley. He found
him at work In his shirt sleeves in a hall bed
room of a boarding-house, smoking aud
writing as he ml with a gas stove fur near
neighbor on the left hand and a table,
which was originally Intended to serve as a
wash-stand, on the other side of him. The
author welcomed his guest with unaffected
condescension, and borrowed a chair from
the next room for him to sit on. Finding
Miilard curious about the ways of authors
heenti-rtaioed his guest with various anec
dotes going to show how hooks are made,
and tending to throw light on the relation of
authors to publishers. Millard noted what
seemed to him a bias against publishers, of
•. whom, us a human species, Bradley evidently
entertained no great opinion. llillaru'slovY
for particulars na; piqued by Bradley's
statement at their first meeting that lie was
engaged In genera] literary work. He con
trived to bring t'.e authur to talk of what
he was doing and how it was done.
• •' You see," said Bradley, ■ pleased to im
part information on a theme In which he
«as much interested himself, "a literary
life isn't what people generally take it to
be. Most men in general literary work fail
because they can do only one thing or at
most, two. To make a living, one must be
able to do everything."
. "I suppose that is so," said Millard, still
unable to form any notion of what was im
plitil in lirudley's everything. To him all
literature was divided into proso and
poetry. General literature seemed to in
clude both of these, and something more.
• "Last week," Bradley continued, illus
tratively, "I finished an index, wrote some
verses for a pictorial advertisement of Ap
plehlpssom'is Toilet Soap, and ground out an
encyclopedia article on Christian Mission*.
and a magazine history of the game of
bumblepuppy. lam now just beginning a
novel of society life. Versatility is the very
foundation of success; if it hadn't been for
my knack of doing all sorts of thinss I
never should have succeeded as I have."
Judging by Bradiny's surroundings and
his own account of tne sordid drudgery of a
worker in general literature,
Ills success
Did not seem to Millard a very stunning
one. But Bradley was evidently content
with it, and what more can one ask of
fortune?
"There is another element that goe3 a
long way toward success in literature," pro
ceeded the author, "aud that is ability to
work rapidly. When Gaflleid was shot I
was out of work and two weeks behind witu
my board. 1 went straight to the Astor
Library and worked till the library closed,
HHiliiTiiii.' material. When I went to bed
that night, or rather the next morning, I had
a paper on 'Famous Assassinations of
History' ready lor the best market But
« hat I hate the most about our business is
the having to write now and then a thunder
and-lightniug story for the weekly biood
curdlers. Now there is Milwain, the poet,
a man of genius, but by shop girls and boys
reading tli<* Saturday-night papers he 13
adored as Guy St. Ci r, the author of a lung
list of ghastly horribles thrown off to get
money."
"This sort of work of all kinds is what
. you call general literary work?" queried
Millard.
"General literary work is the evening
dress we put on it when it has to pass mus
. ter before strangers," said Bradley, laugh
inn.
What Millard noted with a sort of admira
tion was Bradley's perfect complacency, his
contentment in grinding Philistine grists
the zest even that he evinced for literary
pot-hunting, the continual exhilaration that
he got out of this hazardous gamble for a
" hvißg, and the lank frankness with which
- lie made his own affairs tributary to the in
terest of his conversation.
At length Bradley emptied his pipe and
laid it across his manuscript, at the same
time rising nervously from his chair and
sitting down on the bed for a change.
"Millard," he said with, a Bohemian free
dom of . address, "you must know more
•- about society than I do. Give me advice on
a point of etiquette."
Charley Millard was flattered as he never
had been flattered before. He had not
hoped to be considered an oracle so soon.
"You see," Bradley went on, "the pub
lisher of a new magazine called the -United
States Monthly' Uas
ASKED ME TO DINSEB.
"It is away over in Brooklyn, and, besides,
the real reason I can't co is that 1 haven't
got a di ess-coat. Now, what is the thing to
ilo about renrets, cards and so on?"
. ' Fresh from reading his new "Guide to
Good Manners, Miliard felt coinpet-nt to
decide nny question of brUtol-board how
ever weighty or complicated. He delivered
. his opinion with great assurance In the very
words of the book.
"I believe in my soul," said Bradley,
- laughing, "that you prigged that from the
'Guide to Good Manners as Jiecoguized in
the Very Best Society.' "
Millard looked foolish, but answered
good-naturedly: "Well, what if 1 did? Have

ORGANIZED LABOR.
Brewery Workmen Hive a Boy
colling Parade.
President Hanfen of the Xational Brew
ery stated yesterday that the boycott levied
by the Council of Federated Trades is an in
justice in view of the fact that the com
pany had written a letter offerinc to place
no obstacle in the way of any objectionable
man being called out by the union.
As the council had decided, however, that
the brewery had violated its agreement to
employ only union men, tho work of boy
cotting was vigorously commenced. All day
representatives of various labor unious were
actively engaged in conferring with cus
tomers of the brewery and asking them to
withdraw their patronage until the trouble
is settled.
The headquarters of the Brewery Work
men of the Pacific Coast were in a state of
commotion, while active preparations were
being made to push the boycott vigorously.
They held a torchlight boycotting parade in
the evening. General Secretary Fuhrman
was at its head and about 000 men carrying
torches, transparencies and umbrellas
marched through the principal streets be
hind a union brass baud.
Two wagons bore large transparencies an
nouncing that the National Brewery had
been boycotted. The coveriugs of two dogs
that trotted merrily in the procession and
the umbrellas bore the same announcement.
It was an orderly but merry body of men,
and frequently, when the baud played a
popular air, they would join in a chorus of
" .Don't drink National beer."
Some of the parades wore high white
hats while others distributed boycotting cir
culars. At 7 o'clock the novel procession
started down Market street, turned uo
Montgomery to Commercial, to Kearny, to
Market and back to the headquarters on
Mission street.
For the Vnemploycd.
At a meeting of Division 4 of the Pacific
Coast Laborers' Union last night, Charles
Brown of Warren, 111., and a well-known
member of the Farmers' Alliance, made an
address in advocacy of the Stanford Land
Loan Bill. His views were approved by the
union. It was decided to hold a mass-meet
ing to-night in lower Irish-American Hall
for the purpose of advocating an annual
appropriation of 550.000 by the Board of
Supervisors to provide work for the unem
ployed in tiie winter.
Journeymen linkers. •'
Journeymen Bakers' Union, No. 51, held
a well-attended meeting la^t night and de
clared a btycot asainst Myrick's Bakery,
at the corner of Seventh and Washington
streets, Oakland, for failing to comply with
union regulations. A committee was ap
pointed to appear before the Executive Com
mittee of the Council of Federated Trades
to-day and urce tho necessity of a boycott
on M. Davis' re>tanraut aud bakery on
Second street for violating the rules of the
union.
Itrewers and Maltsters.
After the parade, Branch 1 of the Brewers'
and Maltsters' Union held an enthusiastic
meeting. It was stated that already the
boycott on the National Brewery had re
sulted in much patronage being withdrawn
from that place. Tiie Brewers and Maltsters
decided to use every possible means to make
tne boycott effectual.

A VILE SLANDER
REFUTED.
Thos. Price & Son's False
Analytical Report.
NOT ONE WORD OF TRUTH
IN THE BASE ATTACK.
In the issue of the San Francisco Exami-
ner of Sunday," January 38th, appeared an
article signed "Annie Laurie." which ac-
cused Mrs. Gervalso Graham, " Beauty Doc-
tor," 103 Post street, San Francisco, of the
manufacture and gale of poisonous com-
pounds nnd worthless preparations for cos-
metic use. Tho attack was based upon an
alleged analytical report, over the signature
of Thos. Price «£ Son, of this city, which
gave the long and slanderous article the air
of being a boua-fide exposure of a charlatan
and cheat.
In answer I propose to prove, beyond
question, beyond cavil, beyond the shadow
of a doubt: •
| First — That the so-called analytical report
of Thomae Price & Son was a false one
In every essential particular.
Second— That as the Examiner's article
attacking me and my preparations was
wholly based upon this report, that it also
was false and slanderous in every particu lar
Third— That there is nothing contained in
any of my preparations dangerous or pois-
onous for the uses they are intended and
prescribed.
Fourth— That 1 have n? ver used cotton-
seed oil or lard or au.-.liae dyes in any of my
preparations.
Fifth — That the value of the materials
used in my preparations has been grossly
misstated.
Sixth— Corrosive Sablimat* is u«ed
in all antiseptic surgery and that it is recom-
mended by the United States Dispensatory,
and that there is not one effective Face
Bleach or Freckle Lotion that does not con-
tain it; that in the quantity used it is as
beneficial to the skin as proper doses of
strychine are for the nerves.
The reader will at once acknowledge, if
I can prove these statements of mine, there
is nothing left of the article attacking me.
It will be but a mass of falsehord that will
fall to the ground of its own inherent rot-
tenness. ■:';.■'■ I:,-'.' .

A S5OO Challenge.
I challenge Thus. Price & Son. analytical chem-
ists, whose report on my preparations appeared In
last Sunday's Examiner, to submit their report to
three pro lessors of chemistry from any three col-
leges of California, Price <£ Son to select one. I to
select another, and the two to select a third.. If
they, after-making analysis of my preparations, de-
clare, that Price & Sou's analytical report as pub-
lished In the Examiner is true and correct, even as
to essential particulars, 1 will agree to forfeit and
pay over to any charity fund Thos. Price A- Son may
name, In addition to all the expenses of the analysts,
tbesum of $500. and I will make 11 deposit of that
sum In any bank for that purpose, provided Tbos.
Price £• Son will agree to this proposition and de-
posit a like sum for a like purpose.
This offer is made in good faith and will be carried
out by me In that spirit.
Dare Thos. Price a Son accept the challenge?

In nn Interview with Dr. Frederick J. Jlund of
Foliaom street he declares that as a solution of cor-
rosive sublimate — one In live hundred— can be used
lor disinfecting wound*, certainly a one percent
solution can be used on the sklu without danger.
These are all San Francisco physicians of good re-
pute and high standing. None of them would
lend their names to be used In pulling my
Kaco ricu-h or any other Face Bleach, ; but in
answer to a direct question as to whether a solution
of corrosive sublimate of less than one percent,
(or of less than three-quarters of one per cent, as my
rac<s iuea?h and Freckle Lotion arc), they were
obliged to say that such a solution was not danger-
ous or harm till. In addition. I may add that physi-
cians of the very hfehest standing In this city told
me persoimly that they regularly used a stronger
solution of corrosive sublimate than ml. for freck-
les and similar disfigurements, and they would have
so certified here uuly that they disliked newspaper
publicity.
I defy the "Examiner** to find any first-
class physician in this city who will say
that a three-fourths of one per cent solu-
tion of corrosive sublimate, such as mv
Face Bleach and Freckle Lotion, used as
directed on my labels, is harmful or
dangerous.

vengeance upon one poor woman, it would
have made a comparative statement of the

My Gentlemen Friends
Are inclined to make light of the Examiner's
article. They say it will only be a good ad-
vertisement; but every woman knows that
It would be most damning to my business.
Men do not credit women with any discre-
tion in the purchase and use of cosmetics.
They are inclined to think women are so
foolish that they buy anything and every-
thins advertised without regard to merit.
Hut 1 can assure my gentlemen friends
that women are as discriminating in their
choice of the cosmetics they use as men are
of their brand of tobacco or cigars. Ladies
understand and can discuss the merits of
cosmetics with as much . intelligence, aye
more, tht.n men discuss politics; and an ar-
ticle like the Examiner's, backed by au ap-
parently authentic analytical report like that
of Thomas Price & Son, would destroy the
least hope of my continuing a successful
business. Not a woman, other than my
personal friends, who reads that article
would buy a pot or bottle of me again if I
did not prove the Examiner a slanderer. My
gentlemen friends it is no laughing matter.
It is the most serious business calamity that'
could have befallen me. Even should 1
prosper in spite of it, it will do me an in-
jury for years to come. Slanders like this
never die.
How I Might Have Prevented Annie
Laurie's" Slanderous Attack From
Being Published
I was warned by Mr. Palmer, the Exam-
iner's business manager, that an articlo was
being prepared which would do me harm if
it were published.
in the Examiner of Saturday, January
10th, there appealed au article which was not
only unfair to me, but untrue and slander-
ous. My business manager called upon Mr.
Palmer for an explanation, and, while Mr.
Palmer claimed to have no knowledge of
toil article until it appeared in print, he in-
formed my business manager that there was,
in the course of preparation, an article which
he (dear, disinterested friend) feared would
do Mrs. Graham harm, as it contained an
analysis of her preparations, and— well, in
fact, it was rather a sensational article, so
he advise I my business manager to see
about it. . lie might see Mr. Hearst as soon
as that gentleman returned from Washing-
ton. My manager informed Mr. Palmer that
Mr?. Graham was perfectly willing. to havo
her preparations compared with any goods of
a similar nature, etc. My manager said
he would try to see Mr. Hearst, that noth-
ing untrue, and therefore damaging, should
be published.
Oh, my unsophisticated business manager !
And the world at large would add: "Oh,
poor innocent little Mrs. Graham Yes, green
little Mrs. Graham ! Where were your eyes?
Were you blind? Couldn't you take a hint
when it was broad as the side of a barn ?
Didn't you know that nothing but the "big
round dollars" that "Annie Laurie" seems to
like so well— nothing but big, shining gold
pieces, and plenty of them— would keep
that article from being published ? Why, the
Poo Bah of the stage never , hints more
broadly when he turns his back to his vic-
tim and hods out his hand for the biibe than
did . Mr. Palmer when he told you of the
article in question ! Then, my U. M., it was
your privilege to make terms with him (witn
Mr. Palmer) to keep it from being - pub-
lished. Mr. Palmer had already given you
the information which. if you had acted
upon, would have made Mr. Palmer your
dear, good, kind friend for— well, perhaps
not for life, but until they wanted another
sensation or more money.
Why, it isn't likely it would have costover
£000 or $700 to have fixed it !
Well, well, people have to suffer some-
times for being blind and ignorantl" „ ■-
"What," say the people of San Francisco,
"you wouldn't have paid the Examiner fifty
cents to havo kept out that nefarious article,
Mrs. Graham? Self-respect is something;
aud you would sutler the loss of less ►elf- re-
spect if you shot a blackmailer ih;iu if you
bribed him; and of the two acts you would
rather be found guilty of the first?" Well !
What Annie Laurie Said in August
and What She Said in January.
Last August ''Annie Laurie" paid my
establishment a visit, made , known her
identity and had her face "made up with
Eugenic Enamel, Hose Bloom, etc. On the
Sunday following, August 17th, there ap-
peared In the Examiner an article describ-
ing the interview, and «! escribing my estab-
lishment and preparations so accurately
that my patrons all recognized it. From
that complimentary article of a column's
length 1 will make a lew quotations:
■• Do you make up the face?" I queried, diffident-
ly.
•-» Indeed, yes." said Miss Swansdown (the name
"Annie Laurie" gave my attendant) ; "I'll mate
yon up I.' you nice." .
- - I did like, and she began. She washed me with
rose water. Such rose water! Not tlia thin, slc.lsh
stulf w: buy at the corner chemists, but genuine
rose wati-r, all fresh with the scent of gardens and
sunny balconies, and sweet with the deathless
sweetness of dying petals. The next thing she did
was this: She took a little bottle of somethlli" that
looked line the reddest kind of rod Ink. Shu poured
some or this sanguinary llqnld on a Bin ill sponge
and then she sponged my face till it glowed with
alas! simulated blush. That blush was so real It
would deceive the elect." • ■ • ». ; ,T ...'.
••While she (Miss Swansdown) chatted, she took a
white liquid and spread It on my race till I looked
sicklied o'er with the pale cast or something very
far from thought. But my brow was pale and
thoughtful, and my nose wss deliriously white, so I
did not mind. She dipped her sponge In the red
again and rubbed It on my lips, She took a little
pencil and shaded my lashes. She took a little brush
and brushed my brows. She rubbed her sponge on
my chin. She blended the whole thing daintily with
her palms, and she leaned luck and said 'Now'
triumphantly. I seized a glass. I certainly looked
quite yes, really very presentable."
••■Wnen I reached the street I felt queer. When I
had walked a block I felt worse. When I had walked
two blocks I went in and bought a vail. -I'll wash
my face as soon as 1 get home,' I thought I reached
home and round friends awaiting me. I couldn't
very well sit In my own rooms with a thick veil on
so I was compelled to unmask. I drew off that veil
In fear and trembling, expected 10 hear a chorus
of •Jezebel,' when my too artistic complexion
c~me •In view. ■ Hut no chorus came 'How
nice and fresh you look.dear,' said one or my friends
•and how rosy you are.' 'I've been walking In the
wind.' l said demurely." . * .
The above is from "Annie Laurie's" ar-
ticle of last August, remember. Now, see
what this same. woman -says In, last Sun-
day's Examiner, of the very same articles
—the same Eugenie ' Enamel, and the . came
Knse Bloom.:* Notice the different effects
these same. red and white liquids had on
"Annie Laurie" ;in August, . and on '■ her
Imaginary friend, as described by "Annie
Laurie", in last Sunday's I Examiner, from
which I n ake the following quotations: 1 :;
I " Her foolish little nose was tinted a weird, bluish
white, and her cheeks were— well, not rosy but
rougey." • * •- "Dearie. If you could sib your
poor little blue nose, and your very unnatural
blush." •<•_»• "Now to find out" (Hero she Is
speaking of the analysis or the Rose lsiooiu) " what
makes tbat purple, grape-llko hue that adorned
your smiling cheeks," etc ■.:- ;■>. . >■•-... ; ...
.-> Could I anything * be : farther apart : than
; these ' two = descriptions ? Perhaps, had ■ I
sent "Annie Laurie" a check for a hand-
some sum, thankful acknowledgment of
her first article, the second one,' of last Sun-
day,', would never have been written; but I
was paying for all advertising I wished to
do, and 1 was ignorant of ."Annio Laurie's"
and i the ■ Examiner's peculiar ' methods of
mnney-sottiug. " .-.,'_ ■
;- Does . anvnewsraier man require ', to be
told for what purpose that analytical report
of Thomas Price & Son was held over my
head from : September ; until ■ now ? s Why it
was not published then? Ah! every news-
I MISCELL A WJEQ US, _*^ 'j "'-_
DnpPT man well knows, and I imagine every

What to Expect.
The Examiner will never forgive me for
this expose of its slander. : Its managers, i
no doubt, expected me to come down 011 my
knees and pay them a round sum fora large
space in which to make : this contradiction.
Out of self-respect I have withdrawn my ad-
vertisement from the paper. They will never
foraiveme. .They will nag at me and do their
best to try and destroy my , business. •" They
may send out Annie Laurie to hire charac-
terless women to make false affidavits and
statements against me. They will doubtless
publish portraits and letters from aban-
doned women saying that I have ruined
their health, or skin, or : something of that
sort. They may buy "doctors'" certificates
to show that my cosmetics : are injurious.
They, perhaps, will hire some woman to en-
ter a suit against me for malpractice. They
■will assail me in every way which malevo-
lent ingenuity can sugeest, publishing cari-
catures of me, ridiculing my treatments,
giving bogus interviews with me, and lying
about me in their own peculiarly ingenious
way. . ;:-.-.■!..,■;- -: ■
All this I am prepared for. I defy them
ana their maliciousness. I cannot always
afford to buy advertising space to contradict
them,, or prove each article false, but 1
shall see that this article shall have such
publicity that their slanders will fall com-
paratively inert. My defiance of them is, I
confess, contrary to the advice of friends,
who point out to me many instances where
the Examiner has hounded innocent people
to their ruin, merely because they would not
submit to be blackmailed ; but I am strong
In the justice of my cause, confident of my
ability to hold mv own against even the
great odds that are against me, and I pro-
pose to fight the Examiner in the courts and
In the newspapers to a finish, in preference
to buying off a cowardly assailant.
Time will tell whether the Examiner's
reputation or my own will suffer most in
the contest.
To the Women of California,
Especially the women who, like myself, are
endeavoring to earn a living, and whose
good name is almost their whole capital, I
appeal for aid and sympathy iv this ordeal.
They can help me by showing this article to
their lady friends. They can do me much
good by showing how unjustly I have been,
and doubtless will be, assailed by the cow-
ardly crew who control the Examiner.
l'he»e certificates of eminent physicians and
chemists I want every woman to read, so
that the slanders of the Examiner will fall
comparatively harmless. Every woman
who depends upon her character and busi-
ness reputation for earning a livelihood
owes me this aid. It may be her turn next.
Ihe appetite of the blackmailer is only
whetted by what it feeds on. No woman is
siife from such people. The more defense-
less they are the more likely are they to be
assailed. Stand by me, women of Califor-
nia, and we will be able to prove that even
a defenseless woman has some rights which
it would bo better for a news 1 aDer to respect.
While 1 specially appeal to wom«o, I feel I
have the right to appeal to every lover of
justice anil lair play— be they men or
v> omen.
The Examiner's Attitude on Saturday.
Last Monday the Examiner was defiant!
It would not treat peacefully It wanted—
yes, was very anxious, for a libel suit.
Nothing could please it better. A suit would
be the best advertisement the Examiner
could have! Tuesday the same. Wednesday
the same. Thursday, just to satisfy itself,
it would have another analysis made. Friday
my advertisement was ordered in Examiner
for Saturday and Sunday, saying that my
complete vindication would appear in Sun-
day 3 Chronicle and Call Saturday, the
Examiner man sees my lawyer, informs him
that next Monday they expect their second
analysis to on finished, and then, if they
find their first was wrong, they will make it
right with me. But if I will not wait their
time! If I will notlet f/icmexnlaln it! If I
dare assail them then— then— let me
tremble! They will! ! !! The reader can
imagine what they will, or rather, if there
is anything they will not do.
Oh, big. honorable, generou«, brave, chiv-
alrous Mr. Hearst! How every one must
admire you as you proceed to carry out a
threat to use a great newspaper in a war of
extermination against one poor, weak little
woman who has dared to resent grievous
injury and insult. Brave Mr. Iliarstl Brave
Mr. Palmer!

GRAY HAIR NOT BECOMING.
Prejudice Is Overcome by the Discoveries
'■_' of Science.
And what was regarded as practically Impossible
yesterday Is an accepted fact to-day. An eminent
physiognomist said that, in all his observations, he
nad never seen a young race that harmonized with
gray hair. Ladles, In consequence of so many lu-
jurious preparations, made virtue out of a necessity
and remained gray. This obstacle need not con-
tinue longer. . Pattl and the Princess of Wales both
use the Imperial Hair Regenerator. It Is absolutely
harmless, and restores gray hair to Its natural color,
and produces any known shade of hair. Including
the Cleopatra Titian red. Send sample of hair to
