way must be manifestly injurious; and when frequent, or long continued 

or carried to excess, must necessarily result in impaired vision, if 

not in actual blindness. 

 

The following means of repairing and restoring the sight, which has 

for some time been going the round of the press, being based on 

scientific principles, may be appropriately inserted here: 

 

For nearsightedness, close the eyes and pass the fingers, very gently, 

several times across them outward, from the canthus, or corner next 

the nose, towards the temple. This tends slightly to flatten the 

corner and lens of the eye, and thus to lengthen or extend the angle 

of vision. The operation should be repeated several times a day, or at 

least always after making one's toilet, until shortsightedness is 

nearly or completely removed. For long sight, loss of sight by age, 

weak sight, and generally for all those defects which require the use 

of magnifying glasses, gently pass the finger, or napkin, from the 

outer angle or corner of the eyes inward, above and below the eyeball, 

towards the nose. This tends slightly to "round up" the eyes, and thus 

to preserve or to restore the sight. It should be done every time the 

eyes are washed, or oftener. 

 

 

 

TO HAVE A BEAUTIFUL MOUTH AND LIPS. 

 

The beauty of the human mouth and lips, the delicacy of their 

formation and tints, their power of expression, which is only inferior 

to that of the eyes, and their elevated position as the media with the 

palate, tongue, and teeth, by which we communicate our thoughts to 

others in an audible form, need scarcely be dilated on here. The poet 

tells us that: 

 

"The lips of woman out of roses take 

The tints with which they ever stain themselves. 

They are the beautiful, lofty shelves 

Where rests the sweetness which the young hours make, 

And which the earnest boy, whom we call Love, 

Will often sip in sorrow or in play. 

Health, when it comes, doth ruddiness approve, 

But his strong foe soon flatters it away! 

Disease and health for a warm pair of lips, 

Like York and Lancaster, wage active strife: 

One on his banner front the White rose keeps, 

And one the Red; and thus with woman's life, 

Her lips are made a battle-field for those 

Who struggle for the color of a rose." 

 

A beautiful mouth is one that is moderately small, and has a 

well-defined and graceful outline; and beautiful lips are gracefully 

molded, neither thick nor thin, nor compressed nor lax, and that are 

endowed with expression and are tinted with the hues of health. 

 

The ladies of Eastern nations commonly heighten the hue and freshness 

of their lips by means of cosmetics, a practice which in Western 

Europe is only adopted on the stage, and occasionally by courtesans 

and ladies of the demimonde.
