Walter Gleseklng Is a pianist, but he also is a naturalist. Ho has chased buUerflles ir> many lands and his collection of several thousand specimens Is described as imposing. Professionals speak of this highest form of Insect life as "Lepldoptera," but the pianist doesn't bother much about names. "Perhaps,',' he said today, "I should not be called a naturalist. To me they are just butterflies. It Is a beautiful name for the most beautiful of all Insects. They start as caterpillars and end their brief lives In a blaze of color. Lepldoptera? No, I don't care much for that. It spoils the romance." "There are about 80,000 kinds and I can't hope to find .them all," he said. "Nevertheless, I'm having a flue time looking."

The secret of keeping young is to feel young — to do this you must watch your liver and bowels — there's no need of having a sallow complexion — dark rings under your eyes — pimples — a bilious look in your face— dull eyes with no sparkle. Your doctor will tell you ninety per cent of all sickness cornea from inactive bowels and liver. Dr. Edwards, a well-known physician in Ohio, perfected a vegetable compound as a substitute for calomel to act on 'the liver and bowels, which he gave to his patients for years. Dr. Edwards- Ollye Tablets are gentle in their action yet always effective. They help bring about that -natural buoyancy which nil should enjoy by toning un the liver and clearing' the system of impurities. Dr. Edwards Olive Tablets are known by their olive color. 15c, KOc. 60c.— Adv. HEADMASTER RESIGNS ANDOVEn, Mans., Jan. 10. (A. P.)— The resignation of Doctor Alfred E.
