never mind, they will soon fir again;
they are only resting. In such a case
go slowly aside, and give yourself a
gentle shake or two, but refrain from
brushing or besting at the bees. Avoid,
however, standing in the line of the
flight of bees goinr from or returning
to thcii Lives. At such times they have
such an impetus that before they are
aware of your presence they get en

suppose ourselves engaged in necessary

1. Bees never attack wben their
stomtchs are filled with honey or other
liquid sweet. This is their normal con
dition when swarming, and therefore
they are then harmless, as also when
returning laden to their hives.
2. Neither do they attack when
thoroughly frightened. We frighten
bees by blowing smoke among them, or
by rapping rather vio.ently on their

by smoke or concussion, their first im
pulse is to fill their honey hags from

provide the needful emptj- skep and

inches long, a roll of burning rags, un

stool or empty poll, on which to steady
the hive whilo operating. Wc now ap
proach the hive, blow three or four
whiCs of smoko into the entrance to
drive In any loiterers, gently raiso the
eda from the floor board, and repeat
the smoking. Without the least jar,
now lift the hive boldly up. and gently
turn the mouth upward. If the bees
show any sign of being ill-natured, give
them a p"uff occasionaDy. Set the crown
of the hive on to the stool or pail, and
see that it is stead and having the

here is ia keepiag the bees in one con

If the weather be cold, or the opera

there is no unsealed honey in the hire,

on the bees before commencing to drive.
In our modern hives wc use less cer
