Of course such blem- Isljps as freckles, moth patches, liver spots, hlotches and pimples are dis- carded with the old skin. It you will procure nil ounce of inercolizeil wax at. the dnifr store, use like cold cream every night, washing this off morn- you'l find it a veritable wonder- worker. Another valuable natural treatment is a wasli lotion to remove wrinkles which can ibo easily prepared. t Dis- solve ox. powdered saxolite in M: pt. witcli hazel, llnthe 'the face in tills and you'll find it "works like iloorc In Town Talk.
