A COSMETIC ARTIST.
The professirs of the beautifying
art which makes rough complexions
smooth, effaces wrinkles, changes
the hair from blonde to golden, and
from gray to black have always
found their aid liberally in request.
Mine. Rachael Felix and her sister
amassed wealth in London by their
trade in cosmetics, and might have
reaped fortunes if they had kept to
legitimate business. But the pre
sence of a fellow-artist in New York
has been suspected only by those
who have had the good fortune to
answer a significantly worded ad-
vertisment in a popular weekly to
the effect that a certain lotion, which
cures moths, freckles, an. blotche?,
will be sent by mail with full direc
tions. Also a certain other prepara
tion"for bleaching the hair and col
oring it a beautiful golden tint. The
dealers in cosmetics, unlike other
trades, court publicity in guarded
fashion, and for this reason. Their
customers do not wish to acknowl
edge their debts to art, and would
protest against the suspicion of ap-plj-ing
to any known hair-dyer
or face enamcller. It i9 almost im
possible to find a hair-dresser in
New York who will own to any
practice in dying hair, and if one
should boldly advertise the fact the
best customers would be very shy of
being seen to enter his shop. So the
cosmetic artist of reputation prefers
to extend his business by the free
masonry of her clients, or by an
nouncing her lotions without
giving other clue than the post-ofiice
box, or the agents where orders
may be sent. Customers who ap
ply for directions for using cos
metics receive the artist's address,
ono person recommmends another,
ladies who see the improvement of
a friend's hair or complexion are
not slow to inquire the cause, and
women can keep secrets on this one
point, whether they are able to on
any other or not. Golden hair dye
and Bloom of Youth are things that
will sell in spite of hard times, and
whether people have bread to eat or
work to do the devotee of. the toilet
mu-st have her face powdered and
false bnyds. Tho maids in the
kitchen use them,the Irish relatives
might bo tho bettor for tho dollars
and pounds spent iu jute and pink
Not many months ago, as not a
few New York ladies will remem
ber, one of the profession had her
abode in ono of those up-town
boarding hotels, rather marked for
tne strictness of decorum and the
frecdon of opinion under its "roof.
By her swarthy complexion and
keenly defined features the madame
would pass for a gypsy, and her
claims to bo French will Imj hardly
disputed in this paradise of milliner
madames and Parisians from Divis
ion .street. Her visitors, who only
came by appointment, found neith
er sign nor office denoting her prac
tice. Her room was- simply fur
nished, with a few pieces of furni
ture evidently from over the sea,
and of some age. The luxuriously
soft sofa that inakes an ainple bed
by night, and the American carpet
oddly contrasted with a great bas
ket cage, such as we see in pictures,
a tall inlaid cabinet with ornament
ed brasses, and a queer marble pen
tlule. A lover of china would not
fail to notice the blue and red an
tique porcelain vases which stood
filled with sweet, common garden
flowers, alyssum, sweet williauK,
red and white carnations in contrast
.of erinson and snow. A large cre
tonne easy chair, drawij up b,efore
a mirror ant toilet table, was
the only sign of tho business of the
Tho introduction over, madame
would insinuate: "If you would
kinarly take that chair sho would be
charmed to show you her method;"
and, while sho scanned a patient,
glide into a npat Ijttjo speech that
answered for everybody. "You
see, I have nothing to tempt the
fancy. I cannot take superb rooms
like those of Mine. Felix. My cus
tomers are good enough to overlook
my simplicity, and I do all I can
for thein in return.
"Ah! you aro very sanguine" or
nervous, or bilious, as tho caso may
be "you must study your nature.
Be generous to yourself, and take
plenty of pleasure and amusement.
You should laugh and sing and go
to theatres, and allow yourself ex
citement. That is the trouble with
theso women who come to me.
They have no interest in anything,
or else they have too much interest
in one thing or one person more
likely. Either way it is very bad.
The blood settles hi the nervou
centres, and leaves their cheeks,
their eyes, their fingers, and they
prow dujl and of a wrong color. l"fl
1 would like to tako tliese ladies
when'Irubthe paint and powder
on them and Bay, "If you only
cared for something besides your
poor little selves, and I could only
find out what that was, I would
soon throw away tho paint and the
pufF, and let you color yourselves
with some agreeable excitement.'
"What would you do with their
hair?" was asked. isYou could not
color that or make it grow with ex
citement." JI would go to my big bottle, my
son I call it," said madame, laying
her hand on a huge bottle of brown
liquid very much the color of cats
up. "This would mako the hair
grow if it has any life how much
do you think? If it is put on every
daj' faithfully it brings out an inch
of hair in six weeks.
But people find tho perfume rather
too subtile and overpowering, though
it is not in tho least like orange
blossoms," with quiet drollery hold
ing the stopper for trial. A delicate
odor of fish oil and garlic caused
the visitor to d,raw bafck. She
lauglrtd. "Perhaps you will like it
better now," adding a few drops
from a small vial which sent a lux
urious odor through the room.
"This la of great use in one thing,
for I am often asked what to do
to make the hair grow low on high
foreheads. You know how it soft
ens the face to have a high brow
shaded, and those ladies who
have spoiled their hair by frizzing
are anxious to undo the mischief.
.heu I take a razor and shave off
all the down on the forehead next
tho bair. Tljat starts it growing. I
put on these sUn.ula.nts, and in
time wo coax a little baft, weak
hair to grow. That Is shaved off
two or three times, and each timo it
comes in thicker. It is a mere
auestion of time, and the look of
io brow is entirely changed. Thero
is a quicker way "to do this, "but
people generally do not like to try
"It is one of the curious things
that can.be done to take a piece
of scalp from one head and mako
it grow on another bald head, bair
and all. A famous doctor told me
that It can be done in little
pieces, you know ; but it is a fact,
and I know more than ono bald
man who would be scalped if he
could have a natural head of hair
put in Its plaoe,"
"Then genUemen aro interested
in your art ?"
"Ob, yes," said madame, with a
long-drawn breath. "They write
to me from long ways off, mostly
from "West and South, to ask for
something to make the hair grow,
or to tok t off, r to exchange it
it back to its young color. And the
gentlemen write on business paper
Itnat- shows what is Uieir ranK
lawyers, railroad men, army men.
They are all one with tho ladies
alter goou iooks. liut tne gins l
think they are crazy after golden
hair. See; the price of this is $3 a
bottle, and I can hardly make
enough of it, for it must be so old
before it is used, and it gives the
hair a beautiful yellow tinge."
She took a glass jar from her
closet in which was a tress of hair
suspended in a colorless liquid.
"When taken out it was a dull white
In the other hand she held a raven
"This lock was cut from the switch
to tost the bolution," madame ex
plained ; "to-morrow I will bleach
the whole. Then I dip it in this
mustard pot of mine," showing a
jar of yellow liquid, "a'nd it comes
out the color of a guinea. Notice
tin," dipping a black tre. into the
white jar; "we will look at it be
fore you go."
"Do vou bleach hair on the head,
"Certahilj. It is not pleasant
work for me nor for those who sub-
"niit to it. Think of sleeping with
your hair plastered with lime, or
sometliinir like it. I had rather
paint the faces."
"You enamel, of course?"
"Would you like to try? I will
do it for you with pleasure. And a
white dressing-sack had fallen over
my shoulders like down, and Ma-dame-was
dipping a soft brush into
a vellowish liquid that I am free to
confess smelled vilely of chemicals.
"It will smart at first, she said, "but
you will not mind that, perhaps."
Smart! I should think it did. My
face felt on fire for five minutes,
and then it seemed glazed. Hooked
in the glaas, and nothing but a good
imitation of erysipelas met my eye.
If madame wanted revenge for any
curiosity she had it. "If it was to
save theirhealth, ladies would think
they could not endure the pain. As
it is to improve their beauty, they
aro only too glad to bear it? Do
you like yourself any better now?"
Tf it had not been for that horri
ble glazed feeling, I confess I should
have liked the change. You see
such complexions on dolls, so soft,
translucent, but as country folks
say, I felt awfully "deathly." And
the enamel or whatever it was
would not wash off that day or the
next, till it dissolved itself. I had
rather have tan, . freckles
and sunburn all the time
than ever be enamelled again.
" Let us look at the hair we left
bleaching." said madame by way
of diversion. Wc found it of a flaxen-grayish
hue, and she separated
it into two skeins, one of which in
one solution turned nut brown,
while the other in a second bath
came out literally gilded. "That is
for fancy only," said madame. "It
is well it is not fashionaple to have
gilded heatb, for the process is very
expensfc'o-.. Have you seen enough?
Have you heard enough ? I have
nothing more to show. Only I
hopo it has amused you. When
you want to be electro-plated come
to me, and I will gild you all over,
only that will cost you SI 00, and it
will be the death of you beside."
There was a ring at the door, and
my arch, laughing hostess of the
moment before in a turn was the
equally courteous, impassable wom
an of business, meeting a new cli
ent. I folded my veil doublo over
my enamelled face, and took the
next car home. But to this day 1
am not sure whether madame does
or does not like interviewers.
The Oldest Lawsuit.
A venerable lawsuit is approach
ing the end of its iMlst year with
out being apparently any nearer to
settlement than when it began. A
boundary question between the
States of Virginia and Maryland,
relating to the riparian rights of the
Potoinae, to SQ square miles of land,
and to 300 square miles of valuable
o3'.ster-beds, was originally brought
before the King's Privy Council in
1033, Lord Baltimore, to whom Ma
ryland had just been granted, being
one of the parties. The Privy Coun
cil having shelved the matter by
leaving it to the course of law, the
controversy became in time com
plicated and embittered by quarrels,
and sometimes battles, between the
Cavaliers and Roman Catholics of
Maryland on the one side, and the
adherents of the Commonwealth on
the other. Partial adjustments of
the boundary were made in 16GC
and 1GGS, but the main question ex
tended from generation to genera
tion, giving rise to a multitude of
conflicting cases, until fresh legisla
tive attempts at a settlement were
made in 1858 and 1SG0. Thcse,how
ever, were also but partial, and a,
commission, appointed in 1872 to
make a final adjustment, had, after
research and argument, to abandon
tho task as hopeless, and to leave
thouiattcrjustasit stood in 1GG3.
Aged witnesses were heard who had
been "ducked" or "whipped"
in their boyhood to make them re
member disputed bounds, deeds
were examined that had been re
corded in both States, and taxpay
ers who had paid taxes in both or
neither. A proposal has just been
made on the part of Maryland to re
fer the whole dispute to a single ar
bitrator, or else to a new joint com
mission. It is stated, however, that
neither proposal will be accepted by
Virginia, so that this venerable dis
pute is not likely to come to a speedy
A Sleepy Organist.
A ludricous incident occurred last
Sunday in one of the San Francisco
churches. The opening hymn had
been sung, the voluntary finished,
and the minister fairly launched on
the sermon. The organist rose with
the proud consciousness of having
performed his duty well, and, ta
king a scat, reverently bowed his
head upon the railing. From sermon
to slumber is but a step, and before
he was aware of it the drowsy god
had closed his eyes, and he was in
the land of dreams. Gently as
sleeps the babo upon its mother's
breast, slumbered the organist,
while from tho pulpit volleyed and
thundered the invectives against sin
and sinners. The "thirdly" was
finished, and the "lastly" reached,
and still the organist slept. The
closing hymn was given out and
read, but no sound came from the
organ except (he gentle' sighing of
the bellows. The good pastor looked
appeallngly toward tho organ loft,
and the eyes of a majority of the
congregation were turned in that
direction. The sexton rushed up
the stairs, and seizing the pedal
master by the shoulder, shook him
vindiotivoly. Tho somnolent, par
tially awakened by bumping his
head against a gas burner, rubbed
his eyes and went to sleep again.
The sltuaUon was becoming unpleas
ant, when the minister looking pre
and the congregaUon fell in one by
one. As each one sang in the tlmo
he deemed fittest, the clergyman
got through first, and finally the
others, ono by one, flnjslied,- except
a cracked falsetto that had got lost
and was vainly looking for a good
place to stop. Disregarding the lat-
j tcr as being beneath notice the
minister pronounceu me neneuic
tion, and the congregaUon walked
out in silence. A meeting bfjthe
trustees has been called to 1mu1a
whether the organist shall be sfioV
