If one is unable to visit the hi

ready to help growers to present thei
products in the most attractive nun

<Ry DR. O. RONR131)
~ Until with the last 60 iears the
r secrets of the beo-hlve wer^but llttlQ'
understood and the inspect m of ib?
condition of the bees, wl sh is so
;e important at all times, was Ithcr impossible
or considered unecessnry.
Since the invention and inroductton
or removable comb hives, I'hlcli en1C
ables the beekeeper to banc e and ln q
spect every comb, there doe/not seem
j. to be any valid reason vhy beifs
should not be used to cllect and
ir store millions of ])onnds of honey
>s which are now annually going to
waste in the west througl their absence
It is true that bees will sting
sometimes, but their sting s Inslgnillcant
as compared with the good they
do and we should remembc that wo
are liable to injury In a most any
branch of industry. I'robal y not one
person in 1,000 is in any dinger from
bee stings and the results kre rarely
serious. The beekeepers sliould unite
in developing what is undoubtedly a
very profitable industry, though ono
which is unknown to many and which
has never been thoroughly tested for
its value by our people.
NEWSPAPERS TO BAR RABBITS !
Young Trees Saved From Depredations
of Destructive Little
Animals by Paper.
(Tly A. J. I.KCIO.)
A few years ago I set out some young
* apple trees and before I knew it the
? rabbits had peeled several of them so
ilr badly that they died. 1 went into the
field with a gun and could see five or
K six rabbits at n time disappearing at
*" the far side of thr> field. It was usel"
less to undertake to defend tlie trees
8 with a gun, so I procured some old
newspapers and a ball of twine. I
wrapped the trees with the paper as
'' far up the bodies of the trees as rabbits
eould reach and tied them secure8
ly with twine. The pap?T stayed on
the trees all right for the remainder
l" of the winter and the trees were not
| damaged any more by rabbits. This
r | plan worked well for small trees, but
? I do not know that it would do so
? well for large ones. I wrapped the
n paper pretty well with the twine from
the bottom to the top.
Alfalfa Honey.
Alfalfa honey is white and clear, in
an extremely delicate comb, has a
delicious flavor and a nfcst delightful
aroma A report froin*\jffe of the alfalfa
districts of the west tells of a
single hive that contained nearly 200
pound? and of another having 9G
pounds. The owner of these bees hn/I^_
25 acres of alfalfa, while the average
yield in the cast is said to vary from
15 to 30 pounds, :i much larger amount
Is gathered In the alfalfa teritories.
(j Thus the financial returns of alfalfa
may be greatly Increased and in some
instances doubled by having two coloi(
nies of bees for each acre. Or if only
a part of the alfalfa raisers in a neighI
horhood keep bees this ratio could bo
. doubled or trebled by those who do.
, I'tilike other trespassers on neighbors'
, fields, the boos do a distinct favor by
fertilizing the alfalfa.
