Generally, the habitof w-shinig the face in the morning prevails, halt with many persons is the only timein t wenty-four hours that this ablution takes place. With some women there exists a prejudice against washing their faces at all; they believe that bathing and rub bing produce eruptions-that the skin of the face is handsomer the less it is washed. Men return from business, and, before en tering the drawing-room, retire to their dressing apartments to " wash their hands and brush their hair," unconscious that their faces are not clean. Ladies come home from a shopping excursion or a drive in the park. and arrange their toi lets without touching their faces, except to dust them with powder as the last act of embellishment. We invariably send the children to their nurse to have their faces washed before dinner, or a dozen times daily; but because we are men and women....
