have retieti.d, as a matter ol lair play,
an opportunity for reply ; and, M-eond,
heeattw! we have hopes that some of our
readers may he led thereby to itudy out
the probable proees.scs by which the.se pen
tlemen have been preelj)ltated Into tluV
d.liiloii. Sueh stntli(t may result in
uefiil i-upgestlons or new knowledge. It
Is not often that the active participants In
delusion like this are wlllhiL' to eome
forward and chronicle themselves In the
broad and imbliu manner that these per
sons have tlone. The mental or psycho
logical phenomena will, we think, be
found Interesting subjects for Investijrn
tion. An example rouieuhat similar to this
Kecly motor business occurred In Lon
don, in l!71, when Dr. William CrookeJ,
the well-known ftcieutist, iublUlted his
:itonliliini: account of the spirit motor
of Home, In which the i-prinp Wipe was
made to move by the simple jioiiitlup ut
it of the operator' linger'. The truth of
this ierformance was attested by Dr.
Crookes, who himself prepared the ap
paratus by Dr. William Iluggln, by Kd
..ird William Cox, a di-tlnguishcd law
yer, uml by numerous other ltne-i.cs of
undoubtetf reliability. Dr. Crookes and
others wen; convinced by this exhibition
that a new force, which he termed
p-Vchle lotve, had been discovered ; but
Dr. Muggins while attesting that the
gage moved (in fact, the movement was
made to recor I Itself on paier), declined
to expres an opinion as to how the
movement was produced. An account
ot these performance?, with an engrav
ing ot the arrangement ol levers and
gajje Used, was publiihed In the .S'cfcii
litic American, page.i'.l, August 11!, 1S71.
ThU motor of Dr. Crookes apjiears to
itirpa-!-, the Kecly device In goiue re
spects. The power U workable at a low
prea-ure, involves but little expense for
apparatus, requires no blowing ot air
from tlie lungs, uses no hydrant-pre
sure, ami Its success does not depend
upon "cold vapor."
So one, we twlieve, has ever fjueatloned
tlie honety of Dr. C'rooke. or .supposed
for a moment that he had, personally,
any hand in giving motion to the gage.
The more reasonable supposition Is, that
(otnebodv, unobserved by those, present,
applied the iift-itMiry (orcn to the instru
ment. Tho human tenses are but weak In
struments at best, easily played upon
and deceived: anil those wl.o lmvo most
highly prided themselves upon the po--Mlon
of superior perception?, by which
they were confident ot their ability to de
tect tlie unreal from the real, have le
eome lamentable examples of the ease
with which the mind of man can be en
trapped and led a'tray by mere appeal
ances. In matters of science and mechanics,
especially In tho-e branches pertaining to
the eorrellallon of forces, lt'is only by
tlie application of the most caictul meth
ods, coupled with the searching tet of
mathematics, that tellable knowledge
can lie acquired, and delusiveeonclu.sloiH
As in tlie present example of the Keely
motor, i-o In the ease of the I'alneelectro
motor In 1S71. The originator of the de
ception made tlie most .solemn as.-ertions
that the machine which he then had in
operation derived its sole power Irom the
four small battery caps which the wit
nesses saw standing ou n shelf at tlie side
ol tlie apartment. The machine was tes
ted wit u nraKcs as to nower ny well
known practical electrician1- of tins city,
whose names are now before us. who re
ported large gains of power, and detected
no .rami, l neir experiments were cor
roborated by many other Intelligent wit
nesses. Special exhibitions were given
to eanltalNts. who nroniiunced the .-how
We expressed the opinion that the
whole thing was a deception, warning
the public against investing means in the
motor shares. Wo reproduced tlie well
known mathematics of electric action;
we showed the exact amount of force
derivable, under the most favorable cir
cumstances, from the consumption of a
given amount ot zinc and acid, as de
termined, aucr exhaustive experience,
by tlie most eminent savaus, ami Iron,
these teachings wc pointed out the ne
cessary falsity of tlie statements made In
beliait of the now motor. Palnc, in re-
ily to our .strictures, realllrmed all that
ic had belore claimed tor Ids motor,
which ho now alleged was far below
the actual truth: lie said that lie was then
engaged In building a great and power-
till engine, which would be ready in
ninety day, which would develop 500
liorse po.ver from a single cup, com
pletely annihilate tlie llgures given by
us, and show to tlie world that people
who, like tlie editor of tlie Sctcntitic
American, undertook to doubt or criti
cise the performance of a machine they
had never seen and were practically un-
acquaintcii with, wero jackasses, or "a
fool," as our friend Mr. Collier suggests
others might properly say.
"I am liimlliar," said I'alne, "with the
experiments of Grove, Carpenter, Mayer,
Faraday, I.leblg, and a ho.-t of others
relative to thu doctrine of correlation and
conservation ol forces. Therefore, 1 am
no tyro, but the peer of any authority
you may quote, and us such I uiinuali
lledly aosert that, Instead of the nif-cru-bt
small result of 07,000 foot pounds
from three grains of zinc, as stnted In the
Scientific American, wo should realize 07,
000,000 foot pounds. Tho forces devel
oped by the action ot a single Ituuseu
quart cell, if utilized and converted Into
power, would drive tliulargestsliltitilloat
with a velocity only limited by the
strength of tho ship's frame ; ami you
and 1 will live to see tho day, II our lives
are lengthened to thu usual term, when
tills statement will bo vended, mid that,
too, without involving tlie question of
This sort of talk prevailed with the cap
italists , they swallowed the bait, paid In
their money, took their shares, "without
being urged," and that was the end of
the 500 horse-power; no perpetual mo
tion, one cup, engine, and motor.
The Keely motor deception hi all Its
aspects up to this date is hut a repetition
of the I'aiue alliilr. Thu originator is
very honest ; all the peoplo who assist ut
tho deception believe in him and In his
machine. They know not precisely how
the tiling Is done, or by what law It Is
governed, but they know that it Is done,
and any suggestion to the contrary they
seem to consider as n relleellon on their
personal Intelligence mid honor.
The Keely performance Is as fol

council of the company, corroborated by
various mechanical experts, In the state
ments they have now treely prepared for
the csjM-clal bcnelit and ellgnleniuent of
the readers of the Scientific American', cor
roborated, also, by scores of other Intel
ligent nerson. so 'Mr. Collier assures u.

As to the time to tran.tvr bees, wc will
state that the bc.-t time I about the llrst
of April, or when bees are storing honey
pretty lively from Iruit blossoms; as there
arc less brood and honey to contend with
at that time than at any other season of
tlie vcar. It is u-rv nccessurv for them
to be gathering honey at tho time, of
As to transferring lust before, or
alter swarming, that Is. In tiart. a I
dilllctilt to answer, as It Is not always
known just when they are going to
After a s.wann has is'iied, our advice is
not to transfer for ten or fifteen days, un
less a fertile queen can be given them.
For if the operation Is performed before
the queen hatches she might he destroyed
and the colony left quceiiless : whereas,
were It postponed a few days, the chances
for saving the young queen is better, and
aio there is hut mile broou- in me
i i:.n- ni:.ai.Kii.
Our teats as to the effect ol the cold
snap in April were not groundless, lor
now, at tills writing, when we might
have been taking honey by the barrel,
we have to console our-elyes w ith the
pittance our bees gather and use In
brood-rearing, and wait for our share un
til the linden blooms, which we tire
pleased to note bids lair to be good.
To introduce Italian queens to black
colonies, hunt out tlie black queen and
capture her. Cage the Italian queen,
and place the cage between two frames
of comb containing brood, where many
bees cluster. Let the cage remain there
undisturbed for thirty-six or forty-eight
hours. When vott w:Ih to release her,

AHAItV ion JUNK.
Tin. management of bees for .lime Is
so similar to that of .May that it is
scarcely necessary to add 'anything for
this month's operations; towards the
close ol thl- month the linden tree opens
Its myriad of nectaries, inviting the lov
ers of Its dainties to a free participa
tion in the Hell feast which U so freely
Xor is there a lactc of appreciative ad
mirers. From the hum of busy workers
heard amid Its sweets from early morn
till evening drops her "soot bag," and all
are wrapt In the shades of night. Dur
ing the bloom of the lin
den, bees .-tore more honey in
the i same length of time than from any
other source; and what was said in ref
erence to the list; of the extrac
tor tor last month, is equallv ap
plicable to this. Stocks of bees with a good
working lorce will, while the linden Is hi
bloom,, till their hives with honey in min
or live days, vvhlch should bo taken with
out delay with tlte lioney-niaeliine, and
tlie empty combs returned for the bees to
llll again. For in the free use ot the ma
chine is wherein lies tho great yields and
success of practical bee men. Keep
your bees at work if von wish to be
profited by them. .V, i). McLean in Ike
