MAXIMS TO BE ADOPTED BY
One of the most interesting books we
have ever read on the subject of Bees, is
that of Robert Buish, on their Natu'al
History and General Manngement" The
author~ differs in many respects fr-om Flu-.
ber and other cefelirated Aparians, and
bldly miarks out and follot#s his path.
We publish below his 24th chapter, with
ut howvever ailopting his setimltents' .It
nay furtiish nu'merons valuab'le hints. and,
lead'to further'inqniries, atnd investigationls
on q-testions still unsettled, and on which
our best observers uisagree.
WVe have repeatedly referred to Bevans'
little book on the Honey Blee, as contaiti
ing the b lest information within a narrow
composif antd at a low price. WVe have it
conintially for sale.
