Every other day is the minimum of washing that a hair-brush should have. Once secure the perfect cleanliness of your hair-brush, and the rest will be easy.

While we are thus chatting the Chief Priest of the temple enters a very aged man-accompanied by two young priests, and I am presented to them; and the three bow very low, showing me the glossy crowns of their smoothly-shaven heads, before seating themselves in the fashion of gods upon the floor.

The excitement of his encounter with Joçint had not yet died away; this softly delicious atmosphere; the subtle aroma of the pines; his unlooked for meeting with Thérèse all combined to stir him with unusual emotions. “What a splendid creature Beauregard is,” he said, smoothing the animal’s glossy mane with the end of his riding whip.
