Tho coming coronation festivities
are boing eagerly looked forward to
by the women of all ages who move
in what is known as tho ."smart set."
It is anticipated that thoro will be a
tremendous influx of wealthy Ameri
cans and "distinguished foreigners"
and members of our aristocracy who
are blessed with marriageable daugh
ters regard the forthcoming ceremony
in the light of a huge marriage fair in
which, owing to the multitude of buy
ers, they hope to obtain high prices
for their wares.
In consequence, every possible
means to enhance their own and their
daughters' beauty is being employed
by the female scions of "our old nobil
ity." A walk through the West End
thoroughfares or a glance at the ad
vertisement columns of tho society
journals will reveal that a large num
ber of professional beauty doctors
have come over from the United States
and France for the purpose of replen
ishing their purses by adding to, or
pretending to add to, existing charms
or by restoring those that are faded
These practitioners can only be con
sulted by very wealthy women, as the
meanest of them would scorn a fee
of less than five guineas for advice
and treatment. Six months' treatment
usually costs 500. Vanity is always
propared to pay a largo fee.
They occupy, as a rule, flats in
aristocratic streets in Belgravia and
Mayfair which are furnished sumptu
ously and fitted up with curious and
expensive electric machines. These
people mostly impostors boast that,
with the scientific methods at their
command, they can make any woman
of 55, or even older, appear as young
and good looking as the average well
preserved woman of 30, providing they
suunut tnemsoives to tlieir treatment
for six months or so.
At present, it is no'exaggoration to
state that their rooms are crowded
with peeresses and their daughters,
who are paying enormous blackmail
and are submitting cheerfully to op
erations which remind one of the tor
tures of tho Spanish inquisition. Rey
