Doctor's Boyish Face Reveals Skin Renew er I heard the other day the story of the physician with so admirable a skin that all his women patients asked the secret. He told one, who generously told others, that, knowing the remark able absorbent property of ordinary mercollzed wax, he concluded this sub stance would make an excellent com plexion »-enewer and preserver. Know ing the wax could not harm the skin, he began using it after shaving. He soon observed that the old, withered, colorless cuticle was being gradually absorbed and replaced by younger, healthier skin. This was the simple secret of the silver-haired doctor with the boyish face. The secret became public property. Now women everywhere use mercollzed wax, applying It nights like cold cream, washing it off mornings—continuing until the complexion is entirely reno vated. An ounce of this wax. procur able at any druggist's, will banish the worst complexion. Another valuable rejuvenator used by this do< tor was a wrinkle-remover and preventive In the form of a face bath, made by dissolving an ounce of laxolite in a half-pint witch hazel.

He led me on gradually and seemed to love me very much. He frequently begged me to leave my husband, telling me that he couldn't live without me. He is the kind of man who attracts women and who can wind a woman about his little finger.
