We should always treat our tikins with
tha profoundest respect and politeness,
and failure to do thin Is the cause of
ome of tta most frequent and annoying
disturbances, though they fortunately
r comparatively trivial as far aa bc
rlous Injury to health Is concerned.
These are the apparently causeless and
uncalled-for attacks of itchinir. tickling,
and even but nine, which come on over
considerable, area of the IkmIv, particu
larly about this time of year, when the
wrnthcr is changing from warmer to
They may al.o occur before a atorm
or chance In the weather, and very fre
quently after a bath or Just after un
riresvins and retiring at night.
The itclihiK and ilrlykllnK spells arn
comparatively unimportant ro far as 111
health or even aerlotis discomfort is
concerned; but they are often extremely )
annovlnp, and those that come on at i
bedtime may sonu-timra erv unplcus
antly interfere with Flcep, while those
that occur in the daytime after u bsth
or a change In the weather produce
such a pense of rcstlesmic s and dis
comfort ps to conKideinbly Interfere wltli
oncentralon upon whatever work may
b in hand.
Furthermore, no one who has ever ex-jirl-TCPd
it neeHs to be told how in
tensely exasperating, even maddening, i
such a trifling and almost ludicrous dis
comfort aa vlKorot.s and Incessant tickling
and itching, if it only just keeps up long
The severest forms, such as associate 1
with fevere chronic disease of the akin
of the nervous system, have actually
Ken known to drive their victims Insane i
liy robbing them of sleep, rest, appetite,
no that they have scarcely a moment' I
pleasure In life. So that there la a ccr-j
tain sllsht and remote basis for the ver-i
liHOulnr expression, "Tickled to death." I
Kven tickling, howev er, doca not come j
w ithout some physical provoking cause,
though it be but the proverbial "straw." j
These annoying and uncalled-for pranks I
on tbe part of our skin have each of them !
a more or less definite basis, although
they often stem absurdly out of pro
portion to it. ' j
But this la accounted for by the fact j
that it Is the skin's business to be sen-;
itive, and that the same touchiness which ;
gives rise to-these cutaneous "brain I
storms'" is the delicate and vitally lm- j
portant sense which keeps us so promptly
and unerringly informed of change of
temperature, moisture, pressure and elec
tric tension In our surroundings. 4
Take one of the simpler cases first
the itching which follow a bath. It la
chiefly due to a comparatively simple
physical change, and that is the wash
ing or oakins or soaping, aa the case
may be, of a little too much of the
natural lubricating oil or home-made
cold cream out of the skin.
The skin, like a piece of kid or wash
leather. Is ordinarily kept supple and
smooth by being both coated and sat
urated with this oil. deposited there by
the sweat glands.
Cold water has comparatively little ef
fect upon it except by prolonged soaking!
but both hot water and soap dissolve
U out quite quickly, and as soon as wo
are dry after a bath the surfaco layer
of oui skin, robbed of its coating of oil.
breaks, at the very first movements of
the body, into a network of tiny micro
These expose the delicate end organs
of the skin to the nir. and they respond
bv itcV.ing. In fact, the physical basia
of itching Is precisely this Irritation of
the sensitive nerves of the skin through
tiny cracks In the outer layer of the
cuticle, or. less commonly, sudden
trot'hing of these nerves by rapid
welling, as In urticaria, or hives.
T.'iFeascs of the skin which produce
these physical changes of cither minute
cracking or quick stretching of the skin j

which do not. no matter how severe
Ihev may be, are not Itchy.
The process. In fact, may be seen mag
nified fifty fold In the familiar "chap
p'ng" or cracking of the skin in winter
time. Only In this case the cracks going
deeper produce pain and burning, which
either cover up the itching or render it
The remedy for this after-the-bath
Itchiness is simple enough In principle,
that Is. to check this undue leaching of
Us natural oil out of the skin, but this
is not always aa easy at It sounds. . .
In some cases, not taking the bath
quite so hot or cutting short the period
of blissful soaking and parboiling la suf
ficient. In others. It la due to impurities
In the water.
Tn other cases the main trouble Is In an
Insufficient supply of the natural lubri
cant In the skin, and in that case rub
bing the skin with some pure and harm
Jess cold cream, particularly of the "van
ishing" that Is to say. made with milk
turds varietie. Almost any intelligent
rhslclan or Board of Health will fur
nish you with the formula for a pura and
liu-ypeiiaiva cold cream, which you can
either prepare yourself or Have made up
at the drug store.
The reason why theae attacks of irri
tation, either tpontaneoua or after the
tat.h. are roore likely to occur In the
changeable weather of the fall and early
winter or during severe storms with wind
and cold In the winter, is twofold.
Klnt and most Important, the first ef
fect of cold Is to shrink up 'and contract
the dense mesh of blood vessels In the
tk n. capable of holding nearly a third
of all the blood in our body, so as to
drive their contained blood into the vital
organs of the body to keep them warm
and diminish the loss of heat from our
The moment that this la done tho ac
tion of the sweat stands drops to almost

product is this natural skin cream, th
