people, who have a genuine regard for
the old structure.

How Any Woman Can
Remove Hairy Growths
It is not longer necessary for a
woman to visit a beauty specialist to
have superfluous hair removed, for,
with the aid of a plain delatone paste,
she can, in the privacy of her own
home, remove even a stubborn
growth in a very few minutes. The
paste is made by mixing some water
with a little powdered delatone. This
is applied to the hairs and after 2
or 3 minutes removed and the skin
washed, when it will be left clear
