Heading Matter on Each Bagc
BEES AND THEIR PROFITS.
The alitor of the Jiural American, TvB.
Miner, is authority upon becs, having writ
ten a work upon those interesting little in
Rcctg. The profits thej return for the care
bestowed Uon them, nre thus alluded to in
a late number of his journal :
When honey lcs are properly managed,
the profit derived from them arc larre, in
comparison with the capital invested, if the
location be a good one for white clover, and
other bee pasturage. There is. however, a
greater liability to suffer losses by bee-keeping,
when a large number of hives arc kept
in the same place, than when a few arc kept.
bach losses are not in consequence or the
bees not being able to obtain a supply of
honey, where white clover is abundant, but
but occur by latmlies oi becs robbing each
other, and from the fact that a small apiary
sends off more swarms, in proixrtion to its
numbers, than a large one docs. The owner
ofa few hives of bees can easily attend to
the weaker families, and prevent robbing;
but when one has from 50 to 200 hives, he is
more apt to allow some of the weaker fami
lies to be robbed of their stores, by the
stronger ones ; and when robbing is fairly
initiated, where many weak families exist,
it is very difficult to prevent a wholesale de
struction of them, and thus it is that the
profits on a larire apiary are seldom in pro
portion to a small one. Now, we will come
to tho point the pronta ordinarily .obtained
on honey bees.
One lias, for instance. 10 to 20 hives in the
spring of the year, all in good condition,
strong in numbers, and not 6liort of honey.
The surplus honey that is stored in caps for
market sale is about 25 lbs. for each family.
Some will store up 30 or 40 lbs., and others
may hot produce over 10 or 15 lbs; or per
haps none at all, no that tho average will be
about 25 lbs. each. This honey may be val
ued at 20 cts. per pound, making the profit
of each hive $5, which is 100 per cent, on
the capital invested.
But there is a profit also in the increase of
families; every swarm is worth $o that tills
its hive with combs; and frequently, each
early swarm stores up, on an average, 25 llw.
of cap honey, which gives a profit of $15 to
$25 sometimes on a single old stock, as be
low slated :
25 lbs. of honey by old stock..
25 " " Istewaru
.. 6 (X)
Total $25 00
These large profits are not to be expected
from every strong family; they are what
outtimca occur; but if wo take the apiaries
ofa whole State, or a section ofa State, into
the account, we shall find that $5 per family
is as much profit as is obtained generally,
including the increase by swarms, and what
eurplus honcy they could store up. For in
stance, if you have 20 families in the spring,
and sell $100 worth of surplus honey in the
fall, and keep tho number of your families
good, by increaso in swarms, it is about as
much as you can expect, taking one season
There are always more or less losses in the
number of hives of bees kept. These losses
occur generally in tho winter season. Fre-
Sucntly one-half to three-fourth of all in
io apiary perish by sevcra cold weather,
or from a lack of honey to feed on. But
when Ikkm perish by cold weather, it is gen
erally tho fault of tho owner, in not pro
THICK AND THIN BEEPING.
Wcnecd further andaccuratc experiments
to prove tho precise amount of advantage
which may result from a thicker seeding
than usual. Any one who walks across a
field of clover and observes bare patclien in
every part, will be convinced that a loss is
sustained from a want of more seed. lie
will estimate the loss according to the
amount of bare surface; in doing so, he will
invariably make it too small, as strngglins
plants may cover and hide the earth with
a growth not half so heavy and dense as it
will actually sustain. For this reason valu
able information to every farmer would he
derived from a series of expcr.incnts with
varying quantities of seed, and weighing tho
products. The quantity of hay raised an
nually in tho United States has been esti
mated at 20,000,000 tons, worth $200,000,000.
An equal amount of pant tiro would make
tho whole grass crop worth about
$400,000,000. If this annual growth could
be increased above its present amount, as
threo is to two, it would be an annual in
creaso equal to the cost of six or eight such
canals as tho great Erie canal between
Buffalo and Albany.
Tho subject is, at least worthy of investi
gation. Our own. observations and experi
ments have satisfied us that, on the majority
of tho farms in this country, a greater in
crease than here stated could be reached br
an addition in cost in seed equal to one-tenth
of tho increased value. In other words, it
would be quite safe to estimate tho value of
this improvement, if generally adopted, at
$100,000,000 a year. A series of careful ex
periments, widely published, would prove a
gnt public benefit. What Agricultural
Society or ten individuals will undertake the
task? But there is another advantage in
thickly seeding grass. When tho growth is
thin, especially ujwn rich land, it is coarse
and. harsh, and disliked by domestic animals.
This is a chief reason why old pastures are
regarded better than new ones. But if close
ly needed, tho growth will be fine and soft,
and the objection will bo in a great measure
removed. When we come to apply this reas
oning to grain crops, tlicre aro other consid
erations involved. The fineness of growth
is not hero an object, but large product alone.
On the land which is poor, or which posscs
4 moderate fertility, strong and vigorous
plants cannot be produced. They will not
grow so tall, nor branch nor tiller so much.
The deficiency must, therefore, bo made up
with an "increased quantity of seed. This is
tho reason of tho fact frequently observed
that farmers whose land has bosn raised to a
higher degree of fertility, do not Snd it ne
cessary to sow so many bushels of wheat or
oata per acre, as thoso who possess poor land.
It is worthy of experiment to determine
where tho limit should be in both instances.
In raising grain tho amount of the product
in seed is alone to be taken into considera
tion, and hence a thiuncr seeding for a rich
roil may provo tho most profitable. But in
raising grass a thick seeding is absolutely
necessary to give a fine quality to the fodder.
CULTURE OF THE TEA-NUT IX NORTH CAKO
UXA. Tho North Carolina Advertiser gives these
facts regarding the cultivation of this nut.
which is the chief delight of news-boys and
country railroad travelers:
For many years past the ground pea has
been a most important element of commerce
in the Cae Fear country the annual ex
portation to the Northern States and Cana
ada considerably exceeding 300,000 bushels.
A sinele planter in one of our eastern coun
ties obtained from it a yearly ineomo of
$G,000. Ho raised from 50 to 75 bushels to
the acre, and cultivated five acres to tho
hand, which at $1 to the bushel the ordi
nary price, though $1 65 was frcqucntlv rc
alltcd yielded an income of $250 to $300
to the hand. No such result under the old
system of labor could be obtained with
staples on similar soil. Our cotton planters
contented themselves with a crop yielding
from $12 to $15 per acre, and it was sum
ming upon a large surface that gave a living
result. The cultivation of no crop i so easy,
and only the simplest implements are re
quired; at first, the plow to break the land,
and then simply the sweep and weeding hoes.
The average crop, as wo have stated, is from
fifty to seventy-uvo bushels to the acre, be
nidcs which there will Iks enough left in the
ground to fatten one hundred pounds of
The vine, when the pea is removed, makes
an excellent forage for cattle, said to Iks
equal to the best Northern hay. From the
nut is expressed a valuable oil. During the
war Just ended, this oil was extensively
used in our machine shops, and its lnluica
tory proncrtics are pronounced by compe
tent authority to be superior to those of
whale oil, for the reason that it does not
gum at all. One of the qualities of the oil
is extensively employed in the composition
of medicines : another is used for burning
purposes; anil possesses the virtue of not
smoking, while a Uiird makes a really ex
cellent salad condiment Such, and so va
ried and important aro tho uses to which
this simple product can be devoted ; uses
which the uninformed, who have, perhaps,
regarded it only in the light of an indigesti
ble bulb, would never inspect to proceed
from its cultivation.
TOO IAROE FATtMA.
Fanners, hear what is said of " Too Large
Farms," by one of our exchanges from St.
Perplexity! Perplexity I There is noth
ing so bad for the farmer for intance, hav
ing too much work to do, calling for his
help in all directions, overpowering him at
last, so that much of the work must be left
undone, or but half done. Is not this the
case, oh my friends? You know it by a sad
experience and you are going to continue
the thing? You think, ,7It Is hard to get
out 01 it; 1 nave the land on my hands, and
I am so situated that the wort has me."
And so you keep on.
Now, if you had a little home, where you
could look at everything with full attention
time to think it over, and lime do it, and!
then to do it right would not that make you
happier ? The very thoucht of snuKnrss
everything in its place, and a place for eve
rything would give you such a refreshing
cense, that you would bts contented and
happy almost before you were aware. Then
you could live : then you would have time
10 live, vita a little time for other purposes
visiting, recreation, etc. And while the
writer would curtail too large farms, he
would have them so arranged as to have a
good ana proper place for everything and
everything to have room. The farmer
should have room for everything; nothing
be crowded. Crowded cattle will hook each
other ; will propagate disease. Hens hud
dled together will not lay but will gather
vermin. So with grass, grain and vegeta
bles; crowded they will spindle, and shrink,
and never fully mature, because their full
energies were not permitted to develop. They
lack elbow-room ; they lack sun; they are
