Some who have been mora dependent upon talcum than others are especially wor- s rled, for Prof. Kahlen told ths blushing ones they would ruin their lovely com plexions If . they persisted in tha powder practice. Others of ths girts and thass blushing ones have been ths snvy of their dearest friends because of their blooming, youth ful complexions declared they had nothing whatever to fear, for they used no powder, relying alt6gether upon a simple solution of mayatone to beautify and preserve their complexions. One little blonde beauty said: "Maya tone for mine. I Just get from my drug gist a small original package of mayatons, dissolve it In a half pint of wltchhaael and msssage my face, neck and arms with it every day. It won't injurs the most deli cate skin, and the best of It all Is that It prevents the growth of hair."
