imprudent little beasts fall into the

other mortals who cannot swim. On

They need pure air, offensive odors
are detrimental to their health; above

and plentiful. They are ravenous feed

much more in proportion to their size
than an ox. Accordingly, as soon

Once doad, they sire mounted on stands
with wings carefully siud completely

for the entomologist's cabinet is quite
another thing. The best process for
preserving them is by inllat'.on, n
uviuipulation which requites no little
dexterity and patience. Fig. 4 shows
M. Andre in the act of inflating a
caterpillar. Before this can bo dontv
the insect must tirst bo prepared by

valves for tho admissian and ejection

3Irs. Pinkham Tells How Ordinary Tasks Produce Displacements.
Apparently trifling incidents- in woman's dnily life frequently produce
displacenaent3 of tho womb. A 6lip cn the Flairs, lifting during menstruation,
standing at a counter, running1 a tewing mnchine, or attending to th meet
ordinary tasks may result in displacement, end n train of. eer ions evils ia6tarteL
The first indication of such, trouble should be. the signal for quick action.
Don't let the condition become chronic th rough neglect or a mistalren idea
that you can overcome it by exercise cr leaving it alone..
