XVII T WAS still frowning a few days later, working my wrinkles deeper into the fertile ground of my brow, when Roger — he had telephoniUs — called, he said, to a what I was up lo. "Not a thing, 1 ' 1 fell into his trap. "I've just run into a good deal for you," he said. "Mot a chap who's introducing a fine line of cosmetics. He's giving away free facials. I told him I'd ask you if you'd like one." "What's the use of my bothering with skin foods and such," 1 argued. "You know I'm not the type." There was ft suggestion of pause nn Roger's part. Then he intimated^ — oh, ever so tactfully — that possibly at my age it was a good thing to think a little more about preserving oneself. Something about the deal sound ed so phony that I repeated, "You said it was free, didn't you?** "Absolutely free." "Well, send him over.** He wa sn' t a da pper 1 ittle Frenchman; he was King Kon himself, built square like a fooi ball tackle, with low-giro win thick black hair, Iccth as larg and yellow as an elk's. Sheer ter ror gripped me; I wonderet whether he knew his own strength If he got to erasing the wrinkles on my throat, he could erase me too, and never know he'd done it He suggested I sit at a dress in table; he wanted me to watch Uw treatment in a mirror. King Kong bound my hair wit a towel, pinned another aroun iy shoulders. He applied a gen- rous dose o( cleansing cream and iped il oft* my face. My checks emained as pink as roses. He ruliniied me closely. "It's lipstick. Indelible lipstick," explained. "I gel tired o( having ouge blow oft* so I've been using touch of lipstick. Like cream ouge. You know." • * • ING KONG regarded me thoughtfully before he got lown lo work. He applied another ;ort of cream. I'm giving him iomething to contend with, J bought, s'iid of it. 1 believe in a fair fight. I've never seen such lands in my life. Like a bunch ol jananas. Now I saw me, now ! didn't Every time his paws passed over my face, 1 did a total eclipse 3ut he was gentle. And he didn'l scratch. So much creaming musi lave kept his skin soft. I gat tiered from his sorrowfu expression that 1 was in a bat way. He gave me hope, however "Skin ia made up ot tiny over npping layers like shingles on a roof," he said. "When you rub them every which way with coarse towels ..." I glanced down at my best linen, He opened i jar of cream an< held il toward inc. "Take a littl of this on your finger tip*, Ru it into the palm* of your hands. When it is well worked up, appl it lo your face, beginning at th forehead and rubbing it in wit long t gentle strokes." My strokes were long, if no gentle. 1 drew my hands frocn forehead lo chin. "No! No!" he cried. "Chee strokes go up in circles toward In ears." King Kong handed me a bale of tissue. "Now wipe your fac a nd Ihroat ca ref ully." W hi le wiped, circling half-noseward an half-earward so I'd be sure to b right 5O p*r c*nt of th« time, saw more jars being o]>ened. "This is a beauty mask. 1 b olTcr me a bargain. In cider i introduce this superior product, is company was willing lo sat/rice price right down to the i-osl asis. He could sell me tdal-si/.c rs of the entire line? Tot the bsurdly low price of $25. "Twenty-five dollnrs!" 1 could uy a lifetime supply for that mount.

Well, a doll anyway. 1 was watching for Roger when he arrived home for dinner. "What a transformation I" he exclaimed. "Pretly. My dear, you're nivisli- ing. M I passed up lh< compliments. "Where did you meel Unit man?" Roger colored a little. "We wcr< having a drink in the same bat last night." "What did h* give you W) .sick him on me?" This time Roger definitely blushed. "Why uh . . , he uh—" "Roger," I said firmly, "get Urn straight. Slickers don't need a shiU to catch me. Don't you ever give my name lo another one as long as you live." 1 frowned away nil the good of my treatment; and I must have looked aft stern at 1 felt, for he never did again.
