23 October, 1885 - Answers to Correspondents - Miscellaneous

The Girl's Own Paper: Answers to Correspondents. Sound advice with a side of snark.

GLADYS AILEEN:- 1. We should bury the dog's skull in an ant hill, which little animals will eat every atom of flesh upon it, and we should then wash it very well with the red Condy's Fluid, and then put it outside your window to bleach. It was rather unnecessary to inform us that your dog was not living. We could scarcely imagine his trotting about having neither fur nor flesh upon his head, although we have heard of spectral brethren of his reputed to be headless altogether. When your deceased's dog's skull has been well bleached, varnish it with white transparent artists' varnish to keep it clean and preserve it. 2. I your hair is very long and thick, it may be desirable to wear a bathing cap, as it is difficult to dry it thoroughly.
