To change the Colour of red Eyebrows, to a fine black.
Burn a handful of cherry Bones, and the same quantity of ivory saw-dust, when they are almost thoroughly burnt, grind them as small as flour, mix with this powder as much oil of amber as will make them a thick liquid, was the eyebrows with water in which black cherries have been boiled, let it dry in, then take a pencil, dip it in the composition, and rub over the eye-brows three different times, letting it dry between each, when it will appear as black as jet.
