PRICE OF BEAUTY RISES AS WAR
FIERCELY RAGES AND TARIFFS VEX
Rosy Cheeks That Grow Under Rouge, Invisible Face
Cream and Powder Puffs Pale Under
Ruling of Customs Officials
Tho cost of vanity la coins up, espe
cially for women. First the price of
rosy cheeks was advanced by an Incrcaso
In the coat of rouge, Invisible face pow
ders and beauty creams. Then the cost
of beauty spots took a Jump. A year
ago, pood, heolthy, dreamy June spots
could ho bought for 15 cents ri dozen,
and suddenly, on account of the war ot
the scarcity of tho material, the spots
went to 25 cents a dozen. This forced
many girls to buy only nn In-.ltatlon of
beauty spots when Ihey hadn't the cheek
to sport tho rcnl thins.
But the troubles of beauty aspirants
did not stop there. Today it was an
nounced that there was to be a big Jump
In the price of powder puffs. This Is duo
to the fact that all Importers must pay
a 0 per cent, ad valorem duty.
For somo time the powder puff has
been non est, having been succeeded by
tne powder rag. This Is a circular af
fair which looks like a half-baked fish
cake. It la decidedly porous and can
retain a supply of powder Indefinitely.
The rag succeeded the puff becauso the
latter was. condemned by physicians.
They declared that tho fluffy puff was
the best thing In the world for spreading
skin disease and so forth. But It appears
that they didn't say a word against tho
rag, which would appear to be Just as
dangerous and ao tho rag thrived.
Wherever there Is a woman, an elevator
and a mirror, ono of these rags Is sure
Recently some of th fair ex contend
ed that the rag was Just ns dangerous as
the puffs, and ns the latter Is much more
dainty, nurry nnd picturesque many re
turned to tho puff. And then the dealers
got tuny and Imported them In large num
bers. And so they have been reminded
that, according to paragraph 2S of the
1112 tariff act, there Is a 40 per cent, ad
Some of the dealers protested, but the
Board of United States Otneral Apprais
ers overruled the protest.
Just how much milady wilt have to pay
for Imported puffs now Is a matter of con
jecture. In addition to the extra duty, the
salary of the saleswoman, advertising and
tho cost of sending It home must enter
proportionately Into the cost of the puff.
Possibly some American manufacturers
will try to make the puffs here, and, aa
there Is lots of wool available, why not
let the American girl reap tho benefit!
