it soon causes the face to turn sallow and yellow. The following is 

perfectly pure, and is a splendid article, giving a lovely, refined 

complexion:-- 

 

=Boston Burnet Powder for the Face.=--Five cents' worth of bay rum, five 

cents' worth of magnesia snowflake, five cents' worth of bergamot, 

five cents' worth oil of lemon; mix in a pint bottle and fill up with 

rain water. Perfectly harmless, and splendid. 

 

=Queen Bess Complexion Wash.=--Put in a vial one dram of benzoin gum in 

powder, one dram nutmeg oil, six drops of orange-blossom tea or apple 

blossoms; put in half a pint of rain water, and boiled down to a 

spoonful, and strained; one-pint of sherry wine. Bathe the face 

morning and night; it will remove all flesh-worms and freckles, and 

give a beautiful complexion. Or, put one ounce of powdered gum benzoin 

in a pint of whisky. To use: Put in water in washbowl till it is 

milky. 

 

 

FLESH-WORMS--TO CURE. 

 

Black specks on the nose disfigure the face. Remove by washing 

thoroughly in tepid water, rubbing with a towel, and applying with a 

soft flannel a lotion made of three ounces of cologne and half an 

ounce of liquor of potash. 

 

 

TO WHITEN THE SKIN AND REMOVE FRECKLES AND TAN. 

 

Bathe three times a day in a preparation of three quarts water, one 

quart alcohol, two ounces of cologne and one of borax, in proportion 

of two teaspoons mixture to two tablespoons soft water.
