Get 60c worth of delol and with some water make enough paste
to cover the hairs. Let remain on the skin 2 or 3 minutes then
rub off, wash the skin and the hair will be entirely gone. This

F. E. S.: "My skin is wrinkled and ugly- regular course of treatment will make the

new rolling massage cream made with milk.'
The formula: In pint of sweet unskimmed
milk dissolve 2 ounces of bryol, then put it
on the fire for a few minutes and stir care
fully. When it cools you will have a half
pound of the most delightful rolling mas
sage cream you ever used and the cost for

wrinkle-remover and skin-cleanser you will
find this massage cream all you can wish
for, and I am sure you will never use any
growth of soft, silky, even eolor hair. The
beta-cantho! should not cost more than BOc,
and aside from making a very fine hair
tonic, it is extremely economical.
MRS. G. says: "Please recommend a safe
shampoo. My scalp and hair are in terrible
condition from using shampoos containing
lye." Get 25c worth of eggol and when you
wish a shampoo just dissolve a teaspoonful
in a cup of hot water and it is ready. This

hairy growths is just grand. Mine are en
tirely gone. Please give me the recipe for a
good vanishing cream for a dry, scaly skin."
Here is the way to make a fine vanishing
cream: Dissolve 2 ounces of cerol in a
scant pint of hot water.'then heat well for a
few minutes as you stir it. When cool, your
cream is ready. This makes nearly a full
pound for BOc and is about four times as
much as you would get for that price if you
bought it ready prepared. Use this cream
night and morning for a while and it will
soon correct the troubles you mention. This
cerol vanishing cream is splendid for re

softness to the skin.
MRS. A. writes: "Please send immediate
