Health and Beauty Answers
Ada: The unlovely condition of your
skin Is due to the powder and greasy
cream you use. Make up and use this
dainty lotion and your complexion will
be the envy of your friends. Dissolve
4 ounces spurmax in either pint hot
water or witch hazel, and add 2 tea
spoonfuls glycerine. This delightful lo
tion dries quickly after being applied
and gives to the skin an exquisite tint
and velvety smoothness. The spurmax
lotion cannot be detected when on and
will make rough, oily, "muddy" skins
smooth and clear. Use It for freckles,
tan and sunburn.
Myrtle: That unwelcome fuzz on your
cheek will vanish after one application
of a del itone paste, made by mixing
enough delatone and water to cover the
hairs not wanted. After it Is on 2 or
8 minutes rub off, wash the skin and it
will be smooth and hairless. This method
is unfailing, but be sure to get delatone.
Mrs. Geo.: You can have pretty eye
brows and lashes, by rubbing a little
pyroxln on eyebrows nightly, and for
short, straight lashes, apply pyroxln at
lash-roots with thumb and forefinger.
This treatment will give you thick,
glossy eyebrows and long, curly lashes.
Be careful and don't get any pyroxln
where no hair is wanted.
Margie: From what you say, I be
lieve your' weakness and languor are
traceable to your anaemic condition.
Make up- and . use this old-fashioned
cleanser and tonic and your health and
strength will soon return: Dissolve 1
ounce kardene in pint alcohol (never
use whisky), hen add H cupful sugar
and hot water to make a quart and
take of this 1 tablespoonful three times
a day. This rids the blood of poisonous
accumulations, builds up worn tissues
and fortifies the body against disease.
The kardene tonic is especially good
for banishing pimples, blotches, "mud
diness" and other complexion blemishes,
and after a regular course of this treat
ment your skin will be clear and soft.

an oculist. Try this simple home-remedy:

To Overcome Sunburn,
Tan, Freckles, Wrinkles
(Prom Outdoor Life.) .
If you are freckled, tanned or sun

the wax in the morning, fine, flaky, al

tonic is excellent for granulated eye

Miss G.: The cause of your hair be
ing streaky and unmanageable no doubt
is the use of soap or some other harm
ful thing for shampooing. Cleanse
your scalp and hair with a solution of
canthrox. Just dissolve a teaspoonful
of it in a cup of hot water and you will
have ample mixture. This creates an
abundance of white, thick lather that
dissolves every atom of dust, dandruff
and excess oil, and rinsing leaves the
hair and scalp wonderfully clean. After
a canthrox shampoo the head feels
good and the hair dries quickly with
out streaking and is soft, fluffy and
easy to do up. :
Alma: You can soon get rid of that
burdensome fat if you take the par
notls treatment, made by dissolving 4
ounces parnotis in 1 pints hot water.
Strain when cool and take 1 tablespoon
ful before each meal. This parnotis
treatment is entirely harmless and re
duces the weight without resorting to
dieting or tiresome exercises.
Frankie: You can cure your hair trou
bles. Use a plain quinzoln hair-tonic
and you will soon restore your hair to
its former rich color and soft fluffi
ness. To make the tonic add 1 ounce
quinzoin to i pint alcohol, then Vi pint
water. Applied regularly, this quinzoln
tonic banishes the dry and scaly or
excessive oily condition -and when your
scalp and hair-roots are healthy and
vigorous, a bountiful growth of beauti
ful hair is sure to result.
Rose: You can quickly remove wrinkles
