Adne, Blackheads, and 

other externally caused Skin Blemishes 



DONT LET UGLY PIMPLES 
BLEMISH YOUR PERSONALITY 
RUIN YOUR CONFIDENCE 
OR SPOIL YOUR TALENTS! 



CAUSES OF PIMPLES AND 

BLACKHEADS SEEN THROUGH 

POWERFUL MICROSCOPE 




DO YOU feel your skin is hold- 
ing back your chances for 
popularity ... for success? Arc you 
afraid people whom you'd like to 
know will reject you? Thousands of 
people who felt the same as you— 
now have clear attractive complex- 
ions. They've regained their poise 
and confidence. You can benefit 
from their experience! 

SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH REVEALS NEGLECT 
CAUSE OF MANY SKIN TROUBLES 

Skin Specialises and Medical statistics tell 
us that broken out skin usually occurs 
from adolescence and can continue on 
through adulthood. Adolescents often 
carry the*« scars throughout their life. 
Many never get over the "feeling of em- 
barrassment" andjBre always conscious of 
their appearance and complexion. Per- 
sistent cases of "bad skin" sometimes con- 
tinue on through adulthood. In this stage 
of life, the responsibilities of earning a 
living and meeting people are essential if 
you are to climb the ladder of success in 
your job. It is doubly important to give 
your skin problems immediate care. Phy- 
sicians state that to neglect your skin may 
prolong your skin troubles and make it 
more difficult to clear up. And. there is 
no better time to get pimples under con- 
trol than NOW! 

Laboratory analysis using special micro- 
scopes gives us the scientific facts regard- 
ing those unsightly pimples. High-pow- 
ered lenses show your skin consists of sev- 
eral outer layers. Projecting through this 
epidermis, are hairs, the ducts of the sweat 
glands and the tiny tubes of the sebaceous 

{lands which supply the skin with oil to 
eep it soft and pliable. Skin specialists 
will tell you that many skin eruptions can 
often be traced to an over-secretion, of oil 
from the sebaceous glands. As a result of 



DOITT SPREAD INFECTION 

1Y SQtTEEZTNG 
PIMPLES AND BLACKHEADS 



this over-secretion, more oil than is nor- 
mally required by the skin is deposited on 
the outside of the skin. Unless special care 
is taken, this excessive oil forms an oily 
coating which is a catch-all for all foreign 
matter in the air. When dust, dirt, lint, 
etc. become embedded into the tiny skin 
openings and block them up, they can 
cause the pores to become enlarged and 
therefore even more susceptible to addi- 
tional dirt and dust. These enlarged, 
blocked up pores may-form blackheads as 
soon as they become infected and bring 
you the worry, despair, embarrassment 
and humiliation of pimples, blackheads 
and other externally caused blemishes. 



Illustrated is a 
microscopic repro- 
duction of a healthy 
skin; 





f 



CI i Hie si reports state that many people \q'itett out pin/ 
pits snd blackhead suith their fingers. This is unsanitary 
and may lead to the spread ol tfy infection. This abuse 
may also inflame your skin and leave red Witts and ugly 
looking Matches and bumps. As a result yottr lace may 
ht covered with pimples and blemishes. Soon you'll he 
sorry you ever taueeztd or picked at your skin by using 
this unscientific method to get rid ot skin eruptions. 



The sebaceous 
glands are shown 
as they protect 
through the many 
layers of skin. In a 
normal skin, the 
openings of the 
gland tubes are not 
blocked and permit, 
the oil to flow free- 
ly 10 the outside of 
the skin. 



DOCTORS RECOMMEND THIS TREATMENT 

Physicians report two important ways to 
control this condition: First, they pre 
scribe clearing the pores of clogging 
matter; and second, inhibit the excessive 
oiliness of the skin. 

To help overcome these two condi- 
tions, Scope Products' research make 
available two scientifically-tested formu- 
las that contain clinically proven ingredi- 
ents. The first formula contains special 
cleansing properties not found in ordinary 
cold creams or skin cleansers. 
Thoroughly, but gently, it re- 
moved all surface scales, dried 
sebaceous matter, dust, dirt and 
debris— leaving your skin won- 
>Tf y* derfully soft, smooth and recep-

THE GHOST IN THE MIRROR 

By ELLEN LYNN 



ELLIN GARTH was olwoy* o strange child. She 
wen always pretending she was hearing 
voices. She wo* only fifteen when I first saw her 
— end already thawing promise of unusual 
beauty. But she was childlike, quiet, moody and « 
I first came upon her when I was out riding my 
horse, Letty. She was stretched out prone by the 
side of the brook, and her slim white hand was 
dangling in the rushing water. So absorbed was 
she in this simple pastime that she hadn't even 
heard my horse's feet on the shrubs as we ap- 
proached her. It was difficult to get her to talk, 
but when I dismounted and sat down beside her, 
remaining silent and watching the moving waters 
with her, she seemed to gain confidence— and 
from that time on we were friends. 

It was just a week since I had been hired by 
Mr. Fred Garth as a general overseer on his 
farm. He knew I had left the agricultural school 
where I had been studying because my father 
had suffered financial losses and I wonted to go 
out and start earning my. livelihood. The school 
hod told him that I was a very "promising" stu- 
dent, and the truth is I was keenly disappointed 
at having to give up my studies in scientific 
farming. 

"Ken Farrell," Mr. Garth approached me, "this 
moy surprise you, but I'm going to mck* you 
manager of this farm. Frankly, I'm much im- 
pressed with you. That agricultural school must 
have taught you a lot." 

I flushed with pleasure and surprise. "Why- 
thank you, Mr. Garth. I hope I can measure up 
to your confidence in me." 

Suddenly, Mr. Garth staggered. I had to grab 
his arm to keep him from falling. He was clutch- 
ing his chest and his face was ghastly white. 
After I had helped him into the house and he 
had tat a while, he was able to talk. "Ken, I 
hove a bad heart. I am lucky you came to this 
farm when you did. My mind is at peace to have 
a competent person in charge. You're young— but 
you're smart. Promise me you'll stay and look out 
for my wife and daughter, Ellen." 

A month later, Fred Garth was dead. Dr. Sid- 
ney Allen, a neighbor, called *every evening on 
the widow, Grace. She was a frail, lovely-looking 
woman— who seemed confused and lost without 
her husband. 

One day Mn. Garth called me to the house. ' 
"Ken," she said, "I am going to remarry. This 
may shock people— it's only a few months since 
Fred died— but I'm a helpless creature and I feel 
that Ellen should have a father. I love my girl 
dearly— but it was always Fred who saw to her 
upbringing and I'm afraid of the responsibility." 
She paused and her eyes were filled with tears. 
Then— "I'm going to marry Dr. Allen. He was th 
first to p©'n**oi|t that Ellen need* a father." 



There was something about Sidney Allen that 
I did not like. He was too smooth— and underneath 
there seemed to be a hard core. He had come to 
live at the Garth Farm and was devoting less and 
less time to the practice of medicine. Surprisingly, 
he kept me on as Manager, after he had married 
Grace Garth, undoubtedly, because he knew less 
about running it than I did— and the Farm was 
doing well. But it soon became clear who was 
"master" of the family. He seemed to rule the 
household with an iron hand. It was soon obvious 
that Allen hadn't married for mere love. Poor 
Mrs. Garth had gone into a decline and kept to 
her bed a good deal. She would come downstairs 
only to be near Ellen, to protect her as much as 
she could. Ellen often sat with her, reading aloud, 
or just holding her hand. At other times Grace 
sat for hours before the strange mirror in her 
boudoir, a gift from Ellen's father. ' 

I found myself growing more and more inter- 
ested in Ellen. We often rode out together on our 
horses and I loved to make her laugh, to see 
her acting young and carefree. Even when I knew 
I had fallen deeply in love with her, I felt she 
was not quite ready for such a declaration. I 
would wait until she had awakened to her feeling 
for me— and I felt certain that she was beginning 
to fall in love with me. Then I would be oble to 
take her away from her grasping stepfather, 
whose only god was greed. So I waited. 

As I was being let into the foyer one evening, 
I could hear Dr. Allen's voice, sharp, angry, com- 
ing from the parlor. He had asked me to come 
at eight o'clock and I decided to sit there and 
wait till he finished what sounded like a family 
argument. I had no intention of eavesdropping 
and was deciding to leave and come back in a 
half-hour when my own name entered into the 
discussion. Much to my amazement, I heard Dr. 
Allen objecting to Ellen's mother that Ellen was 
getting too "chummy" with that Ken Farrell. 
"Don't let her get any romantic notions about our 
farm manager," he said. "She's nearly seventeen 
and it's time to think of her settling down and 
marrying. In fact, Ben Anderson and I have talked 
about Ellen and him. Our farms adjoin and we 
could combine the two and run a real enterprise. 
Ben is a smart boy and runs his farm practically 
singlehanded. That boy, Ken, tries to run our 
place by books. Ellen must stop seeing him— you 
know of course what he's after— this farm . . ." 

"Oh no, Sidney, you can't. You must not. Ben 
is fifty, old enough to be her grandfather. He's 
a miser. He'll beat her." The gentle Grace was 

wild, infuriated. 

"I married you to protect her," wept Grace. I 
vow to you I will save her, even if I have to come 
back from the dead to do it." 

Events moved fast #rfter this. Suddenly there 



wm o thud as though someone hod fallen. Throw- 
ing caution to the winds, I hurried into the parlor 
and saw Mrs. Allen crumpled on the floor. Dr. 
Allen was saying— "It's her heart, poor dear It's 
all over. Oh, God, why has this happened to me?" 
Dr. Allen rushed me out of my job and out of 
the house. My only comfort was the determination 
that I would come back for Ellen, So grief-stricken 
was she, and so watched over by her stap-father, 
I couldn't even see her before I left. But I got to 
know all the details of the occurrences after I 
left. Strange as they were, I finally returned, just 

in time. 

Mrs. Garth— or Mrs. Allen— hod left a will be- 
queathing all the lands to Dr. Allen with one odd 
condition: that he never part with the large, brass- 
framed mirror that hunq in her boudoir. Dr. Allen 
called it a crazy idec-"Poor Grace was getting 
unbalanced toward the end"— but there was noth- 
ing he could do about it— he hod to obey the 
conditions of the will. 

The shock of her mother's death and the harsh- 
ness of her stepfather toward her gentle mother 
and herself, had a serious effect on Ellen. She 
retreated more and more into herself. The little 
resistance she had put up against him while her 
mother was alive disappeared. She was now meek 
and obedient to the wishes of Dr. Allen. The oniy 
time she seemed happy was when she sat in 
her mother's boudoir before that large, brass- 
framed mirror. 

"You don't have to sit there admiring yourself. 

Miss," her step-father sarcastically informed her. 
"You have an admirer downstairs waiting to see 
you. Ben Anderson is ready to marry you and the 
sooner you settle down with him the better." 

"It isn't myself I see in that mirror," Ellen re- 
plied. "My mother talks to me." 

"Ben better marry you soon— before he dis- 
covers you're balmy," Dr. Allen laughed. "What 
does your mother say to you, pray tell?" 

"She tells me not to worry— that she can be a 
better mother to me now than she ever was be- 
fore . . . that she is stronger and can protect me 
from all evil ..." 

Ellen's stepfather snorted— "So now we believe 
in ghosts— and this is a haunted house! Enough 
of this foolishness. Make yourself presentable and 
go downstairs to see your fiance." 

Doing as she was bid, Ellen went down to see 
Ben Anderson. But Dr. Allen was disturbed by 
her calm self-assurance, by her contented smile. 
Truthfully, she didn't seem unbalanced of mind at 
oil. What trickery was going on? Hearing the re- 
mote voices of Ellen and Ben downstairs in the 
parlor, he was about to join them to bring thingi 
to a head concerning their marriage, when he 
•topped at the open door of the boudoir. Was he 
imagining thing*? A soft voice, like Grace's, called 
his name: "Sidney— Sidney— in here . . . comei in 
here . . ." It was some kind of hallucination, put 
Dr. Allen boldly walked into the room. In the 
^ork boudoir, faintly illumined by the moon 



through the windows, he thought he saw a shadow 
playing upon the surface of the brass-framed 
mirror. It was just a train of thought that mode 
him imagine it had the outlines of— Grace. With 
a sneer he turned to walk out of the room when 
again he heard that soft voice: "Sidney— come— 
follow me— you must— follow me . . ." Wheeling 
around, he sow the shadow on the mirror fade 
away. A sudden chill came over him and he 
hurried downstairs. 

Dr. Allen hastened the date of the wedding and 
it was noted by all that Ellen went about her 
preparations pleasantly, patiently. Everyone knew 
she was not in love with Ben; she appeared to be 
waiting, waiting for something to happen— some- 
thing sure to -stop the wedding. The atmosphere 
was charged with tension. It was like racing 
against Time, with Dr. Allen rushing to get that 
marriage over before anything could happen. 
The only composed person was— Ellen. 

When the wedding day arrived and the guests 
started to come. Dr. Allen's face wore a tri- 
umphant smile. He even patted his neighbor on 
the back, "Well, Ben, we're practically partners, 

now. Let's shake on it." 

Then he saw me enter the house. I could see 
the expression of fury on his face. In scarcely sup- 
pressed tones of anger, he approached me, say- 
ing, "Ken Farrell, only invited guests may come 
to Ellen's wedding." I answered, "That is why I 
am here, Dr. Allen. Ellen sent me a letter inviting 
me here." He appeared highly nervous and I 
watched him hurry up the stairs. What happened 
—I learned later. He found Ellen in her bridal at- 
tire, sitting before the Mirror. He heard a voice 
say: "Darling, you will not marry Ben— you may 
be sure of that. I shall keep my promise." Then 
he saw the same shadow in the Mirror— "Come, 
Sidney— follow me— you must, you know . . ." 
With a burst of fury and a loud scream, Dr. Allen 
rushed to the Mirror and hammered it with his 
fists-"You witch," he yelled, "I don't know what 
trickery Ellen is up to but here's what I think of 
your ugly mirror— and this wedding will take care 
of your Will." There was a resounding crash as 
* Dr. Allen's blows splintered the mirror and the 
heavy glass came clattering down. Blood was 
streaming from his pierced wrists and he fell 
heavily to the floor. 

All the guests had rushed upstairs upon hear* 
ing the clamor. There I saw my beautiful Ellen, 
her face horrified— but she rushed to me and I 
enfolded her in my arms. Her letter had merely 
told me to come today— there was an urgency 
about it— but now her eyes told me what for so 
long I had hoped to see— that she loved me. Ellen 
had felt that I in some way would save her from 
her marriage to Ben. 

But wo* it play-acting? Sure it couldn't be, y^M 
will say. But there, glistening on the floor near 
the shattered glass, like a protective amulet, was 
the gold wedding band which Ellen's mother had 
worn 'n death and which was buried with herl
