Complexion Help No amount of make-up will hide a bad complexion. But a good cleansing routine will help problem shin. Start off with a cleanser and face brush for a deep cleansing of pores. Remove all make-up at night no matter how tared you are. A light moisituirizer worn overnight is good for dry or normal skin. A face mask or astringent will help oily complexion. READ THE WANT ADS!

Book's Combination W Of Novel Biography "And From Su*h Men,' 1 ' by Virginia' G..Scott; pub., Dorrtne« and Co. , . i Virginia Scott tells the story of her great-grandfather through the four women who most influenced his life. They were Sallie, his mother; Barbara Ann, his first love; his wife, Lucy, and daughter Sarah. " '" ' historical novel and biography. Her book is a combination o Charles Gill was bom in New York in 1829. His mother came to Fountain Green after the death of her husband. The family ran an inn in the town while one of the daughters was attending Knox College. Gill left Fountain Green to work for a shipping company in Warsaw. He soon became restless and decided to travel to California to look for gold. [He returned to Illinois after the death of his mother and again went West, taking a herd of cattle to Utah. Whu> there, he met Brigham Young, who helped him find Barbara, a girl he had met on his first trip West. He had fallen in love with her but did not find her soon enough. She had become a Mormon and was the first wife of a farmer. The most interesting section of the book describes Gill's adventures as a riverboat owner during the Civil War. His boats were used by the Union as! troop and supply ships and were under attack several times while they traveled the Mississippi. During the war, Gill met General Ulysses Grant, and was involved in the seige of Vicksburg and the battle of Chattanooga. After the war Gill returned to his family in LaHarpe. He became a banker and farmer and was one of the few bankers to stay solvent during the depression ofthe 1870's. He died in 1897; As history, And From Such Men has little vahie. No real new information is presented. Most of the facts are common knowledge, and; except for the first person account of the Civil War would be of little interest to a historian. Unfortunately the book is also rather barren fare as fiction. The character of Gill is well Idetailed. His prejudices and faults, as well as the good points of his character are shown. [However, none of the women in any of the book's four sections is really developed as a character. Lucy, the wife, is a dominant figure. Her character is shown throughout the book in transition passages but is not adequately treated in the section devoted to her. The other three women are merely shadowy figures who are mentioned brief\y.- d^ooLs /deceive J at the cJ&b Thursday; July 5, 19^ IS % t retry The following books have been,?j^sj* n, . e .^?^ |received at the Galesburg Public Library. fiettdit The Avlma Affair, by Mid Calmer.

She researched the book for two years before it was written. Mrs. Scott was born in Springfield. She graduated from Carleton College, Northfield, Minn.
