HOW TO CURL THE HAIR IN DAMP WEATHER I Oarnp days have no terror for the woman wlio has adopted the silnierine juethod ot keeping: her haJr in curl. The effect is more lasting tnan where the hot waving iron is and yet the hair is quite nianageable; regard- Jess of how it is done up. Besides, the hair has the appearance of beins more naturally wavy and curly, and the application is really beneficial to the life and growth of the hair. In dry weather the hair will of course remain heautifully curly aud fluffy for a still longer period. Most any druggist can supply the liauid stt- merine and one need not get more than a few ounces. A siuaii quantity should be put on ruefore retiring, using for the. purpose a cleau toothbrush, drawing this down the full lentils of the hair irom root to tip. The effect upon arising is delightfully surprising and there is no discoloration, no stick-' ness, greasiness, nor any other un- pleasanl ment.
