TMM DAXGKB3 OF AJR8E1TICAI, TOIL- XT USED Or BEAUTIFYING THE FACE. -Wlui IteMrtedto IMu- BBOOKLTIT, March 2 A woman of ordinary intelligence ought to know without being told that arsenical toilet prepawaiions are to the health, and yet not a week passes that I am not in receipt of letters, most of them showing thought and ability, asking; me to recommend some cosmetic tot the elimination ofrpimples, and requesting to to told if arsenic is as safe for an internal med- icine as it Is for a complexion wash These correspondents know that arsenic is a deadly poison, and yet they talk about jts use as if it were the simplest and safest drag in the world Arsenical doses will put an end to pim- ples, and, what Is more, an end to the life of the person using them I am not now speak- ing from generalizations or from what I have heard, but from absolute personal knowledge One friend of mine, a beautiful young woman, was afflicted with an eruption upon the hands This was not only exceedingly painful but very mortifying Her own family physician, a man of common sense as well as of scientific attainment, prescribed certain blood remedies, hut refused to give her anything to act upon the condition in other words declined to doc- tor symptoms TUK FKLLBTS OF AKBSNZC The patient became irritable and dissatisfied and finally consulted a newly fledged M D who, through some advertising dodge, had been brought prominently before the public She returned to her home with pellets of irsenic to be taken during the day, and an arsenical lotion to be used morning and night, and a piece of advice This w as not to notice any criticism of the treatment, and to say to those who condemned arsenic that such an ob- jection was only an old woman's whim, which medical science had satisfactorily disposed of A permanent cure was guaranteed in six weeks At the end of that time my friend's hands were as white and as smooth aa an in- fant's, but my friend was in the agonies of death The eruption had beea driven inward Instead of out of the system, and quick con- sumption was the result Another victim, a young man, was also a friend of mine His life was embittered by pimples which covered his face bad tenant is better out than in." his own good doctor sententiously told him But he could not wait for slow methods, and so fell into the hands of another murderer The last time I saw this promising youth before he died he called my attention with a good deal of that is only bronchial, and he is giving me medicine for it, but I don't care a cent for the Cotign KTLT-ED BY THE USE OF ARSENIC Such, cases could be indefinitely multiplied, but I have dwelt upon these because I watched them from start to finish, and am aa sure aa I am of my own existence that my friends were killed by the use of arsenic That arsenic in hands of skillful physicians is sometimes a help in certain acute diseases I am ready to admit, as I admit the value of strych- nine and stomach pumps, but for steady or even occasional use in eruptive diseases, chronic or otherwise, it is simply a deadly cure I do not know that all the complexion lotions contain arsenic, but I do that every woman who has an intellect above that of a jelly fish, should know the ingredients of the stuff she uses as a medicinal wash or beautifier In a late interview with one of our most dis- tinguished physicians I v, as told that the folly of women with their poisonous face washes. their compressed and, in many cases, lapped ribs, their heavy petticoats and elaborate dress skirts pulling down and inflaming the most delicate of the vital organs, was quite equal to the folly of men in drinking and carousing, and for his part he thought that the effect of woman's folly upon her health was greater than the dissipation of men upon theirs "Why do not women do more for each this gentleman asked "Why do not those who nave found out the way show it to those who have lost it, or who never had it at the immense temperance societies organized, and controlled by women all over this country He went on, "Look at some of the leadens of these enterprises, as they address their meet- ings lu excellent English, but no breath to apeak of Look at their girted-in waists, their swell dresses dragging upon their hips Be- cause these women do not drink intoxicating liquors, they imagine they are temperate Tbe is, that many of them are quite as far off the track of health and common sense and decency as men, and need missionaries quite as much as men Then look at the candy that women eat It seems fully

this little lecture, that nettled as I cer- certainly was, I had no argument to combat it with I could have urged the old plea that woman's folly had its ongtn and de- velopment in her wish to please a man, but this was such an antiquated chestnut and be sides made a woman seem so much more a fool, that I forebore My intention in this paper was to warn my friends not only against the use of arsenical preparations, bat against the use of anything for the complexion tbat they did not know to be perfectly harmless A lotion tbat fs power- ful enough to remove will usually move them inward instead of outward Out of door exercise, the exercise that starts the blood to tingling and the perspiration from every pore, careful bathing, weft ventilated rooms day and night, care about diet, and light weight clothes which bang from the shoulders will so oxygenate the blood and work upon the general health as to cure erup- tive diseases If such obedience to the rules of health do not have this effect then nothing will An excellent cold cream, both for chapped lips and rough skmr and a decided complexion softener, is made of the following ingredients Two ounces oil of almonds, one-half ounce spermacetti, one drachin white wax, and a little rose water This cream is very inexpensive u well u effective, and a pint of it put up by one's gist will cost but a little and hut a long time B.
