Mamie U. Is a little girl twelve years
old who finds some tan and freckles
on her face and wants the editor to
tell her how to remove them. Answer:
Tsn and freckles are a growth In the
skin and are developed by light and
heat principally by sunlight. Some
persons are much more troubled with
them thnn others. Delicate complex-
ions are usually most susceptible. There
are several things that will remove
freckles but they are not very safe to
meddle with. Ten drops of carbolic
add In thirty drops of glycerine Is said
to be good. It must be applied only to
the dark spots. It cures by burning
the ckln. which afterward comes off

The best remedy for such annoyance!
as tan and freckles Is to wear a hat oi
