Oxmarrow-Pomade for the Hair


  • 1 marrow bone
  • 1/2 pint of oil
  • 10 cents' worth of citronella


Take the marrow out of the bone, place it in warm water, let it get almost to boiling point, then let it cool and pour the water away; repeat this three times until the marrow is thoroughly "fined." Beat the marrow to a cream with a silver fork, stir the oil in, drop by drop, beating all the time; when quite cold add the citronella, pour into jars and cover down.
