The following recipe for promoting the growth of the eyebrows is very good, and is perfectly harmless:

Vaseline, 2 ounces, Cantharides, 1/8 ounce, Oil of rosemary, 15 drops, Lavender extract, 15 drops.

Mix thoroughly, and apply to the eyebrows with a tiny toothbrush once a day until the growth is sufficiently stimulated, and then less often.

This ointment may be used for the eyelashes also, but in this case apply carefully, for it will inflame the eyes if it gets into them.
