AN AMAZING NEW OFFER AiewotfliaiiiimysYOUcaiase these magRinceiit butterflies We think you will agree that this is a rare and truly unique offer. We believe it is, and we are happy to tell you how it came about. Nestled in the Pacific Ocean between Japan and Hong­ kong is the island of Taiwan. It is lush and green, with soaring slopes covered with flowers and spotted with small lakes. In the center of this warm and beautiful land is a small town named Li-Pu near Sun Moon Lake. And it is here that on a-warm day, the swarms of butterflies are so heavy that they appear to be like clouds of color moving across the sky. It is on days like this that literally the entire village, young and old, turns out first to catch, then carefully mount and place in individual see-through envelopes the thousands of brightly-colored butterflies (some of which you see here) that we offer you. Some have giant wings three inches long, exotic cotors, deep purple spots and stripes, soft green wings, and names like "tiger swallowtail" and "peacock" and "dragonfire" and "sun love". How can we offer them to you? Simply because one of the town elders saw an advertisement of ours in an American magazine and wrote and asked us to sell their butterflies (which they had been selling to museums all around the world). The butterflies are perfectly preserved and truly lovely. They are educatkinal and fun. They can be used for so many things around the house. Children love them. And they are real. The supply is quite limited, naturally. Order yours today. ! MADISON HOUSE. 122 East 42nd Street. New York 17 .
