AT the present time the British Medical Associa- tion includes 21 women doctors, who have taken ad- Tantage of the new law admitting them to member- ship. Two Chinese women have lately taken the examination for the medical department of the Uni- versity of Michigan. In the United States there are seven women who have received the degree of LL.D., and there are 21 law firms, in which the partners are husband and wife. In Spain there is only one woman lawyer, Manuela y Palido, of Madrid, who is ÃClted not only for her legal acuinen, but also for her 0feat personal beauty. For a long time I have been gathering information (remarks Lady A." in the Weekly Sun) about the treatment of the hair and complexion at springtime, the most trying period of the year. I should first of all Jike to tell you a little about the advantages of a daily tub. I don't think we half realiliv the effect it has on the whole body, and I hear that many people now take it at night as an incentive to sleep. Now, that is wrong. It should be taken as soon as ever you rise. Don't fiddle about your bed-room, but get into your bath at once while the body is quite warm. You should not remain in it too long and if you can stand it, have a large basin of coid water and big sponge ready, and just rub jourself all over before commencing to dress. Then cover the whole body before you finish dressing. More colds are taken during the first ten minutes nfter bathing than can possibly be imngined. Soup is not essential every day, and when used should he of the purest, but. a good sponging nnd rubbing will keep the Imdv clean and in good health..Now a litiie about the carl" of the face. It should onW be w»s!u-d once in the 2-1 hours, and that should tlie at. nijrlit. In the looming gpntlv rub it over with the IIMTKIS after having dipped them in r;iin-wntrr if pos- sible, or o! benvise in water in which a bran or o.-kt>- meal bng has been JeÃt. all night. Tljie prepa-:i4ion must he constantly renewed, or if an efiert. A li!1.> cooling medicine should he taLt-n oner It in springtime. It helps the skin a ;>reat. deal, und the following is a very old-fashioned but very good recipo for making a mixture at home: 'oz. of the best senna leaves, 2oz. of salt P, and i oz;,of -tlio liquorice. Put these in a saucepan with two qimrt-s of fresh water; let it simmer, not. too fast, f,o one quart then strain, and when (-old put it in a bottle. It. should 1 lave the consistency of thin cream and must be well corked. A winegla.ssful should be taken an hour before rising. About soap.: everybody's skin in some small' way differs, and it is much the best if you find a preparation tbat suits you, and stick to it. Don't be persuaded to buy what every other person will recommend. The best makes of the best makers are nearly always safe, but many skins require a superfatted, soap, particularly those easily affected byr the wind. These are a few plain directions. which need not take up many minutes of a. busy woman's time, and which, if attended to carefully.. will help to put off for a little while woman's greatest foe, age." I have had several warnings from the editor about space, so I cannot give much attention; to woman's greatest beauty-her flowing locks-this week, but shall hope to return to the subject at a later date. Our heads are very much better dressed as a rule at the present day than some years ago, but still the cry is for improvement. I often wonder that in a family of girls one often does not have hair- dressing lessons. She could then teach the others and they could mutually oblige one another. It is absurd to say, however nimble one's fingers may be, that one can do one's hair to the same perfection, that it can be done for by an expert, assistant. And now a word as to children. They should be brought up to brush their hair as they are to clean, their teeth. There is nothing to equal it in healthy effect. Weak hair is improved and good hair strengthened by the process. Ten minutes' habit night and morning is not a great deal to learn, and in time it becomes second nature. The hair should not be washed more than once a fortnight and dark hair does not always require it so often. The scalp of the head can be cleaned with a little water or any Boftening lotion. Then another important thing is never to fasten up the hair too tightly, or use Vapes or ribbon. Don t have too manv hairpins. They are none of them good, and the woman who can do with the least number stands the greatest ehanee of keep. ing a good head of hair,
