SOUGHT TO ENHANCE CHARMS
Roman Beauties Well Knew the Value
f Tlmo 8pent at the Toilette
The toilette of the Roman beauty
was a vastly Important affair. The
maids who assisted In It were usually
Greek slaves, and the length of time
devoted to Jt may be Judged from the
fact that, like beauties of France so
many centuries later, the llomun
woman often had the poets and the
philosophers of the day to divert her
Airing Its progress, a favor of which
they seem to have been less apprecia
tive than their descendants In Prance.
The equipment for the toilette was
both elaborate and complete. Combs,
mirrors of burnished bronze, bottles
for perfumes and boxes for rouse and
whitening preparations arc all to be
found In collections of Roman toilette
articles, and many are the harsh
.rvrds on the subject of the feminine
toilette to be found In the writings of
their masculine contemporaries who
disapproved of charm In their women,
yet seem with masculine inconsistency
to have disapproved equally of women
