In reply to the request presented by Dr. T. J. West, in the January number, for a method which will remove powder stains from the face, I advise the use of the following: scrape a cake of castile soap, and mix the scrapings thoroughly with an equal part of antiphlogistine. Apply this about one-fourth of an inch thick. Renew this dressing each day, as needed. This can be used in the form of a mask if desired.
