occurred twice, I have never tailed to secure
Liiu per ccul. net profit, on the value of my

need not be repeated; but granting that
they are occasiqiially imperative, with the
honey and comb still left at my disposal, I
could pmchase agaiu iu the spring, aud
slill secure HM per cent, on my outlay . This
is no guess vorii, Hut a fad, built ou Hie
sure toiiudalion til past experiences, ami
can only lie denied on the ground that fheie
is to be a revolution in the nature of things.
The world is coming to believe less and less
in revolutions; but say you such lesults are
not common. The apiarists of our couutry
arc not to he inilliotiaries, nor indeed have
their bank credits been such as lo occasion
wonder, or even remark. But mind you, I
said rational bee-keeping. Is it not true
that most bee-keepers make this au avoca

which, though, they alter admit it brings

Agaiu, how large the per cent, of bee-keepers,
who let the apiary n.;n itself. They
give it no thought, no study, and very little
atH'utiou. They cannot afl'ord to take a bee
journal, aud as for reading bee books, they
have no lime and less inclination. What
wonder, their song Is burdened with loss,
aud what wonder that tpit.ulUue, which
has to carry such weights.loses such prestige

There are many breakers that stand iu
the way of the ignorant and untboughlful
apiarist; two of which it is my purpose to
present ou this occasion, First X will
t KKSI.KsS I OI.ON1ES.
It is wt;1I know n that a good queen will
lay upwaras of 2it eggs daily, and as 20,uuo
or Juji bees ma ie a strong colony, it al
once appeals I Hal the loss of a queen in a
Hill strong colony, lor ten or fifteen days, is
equivlaeui it, the losu of a good stock ol
bees. Thai there Is al ways this actual loss
iu bees, is Hot true, lor Willi loss of queen,
work ceases more or less, aud the mortality
of tlie old licts is corresondingly abated,
butthls lack is compensated iu Ihe decrease
in Honey. 1 Have no hesitation in affirm
ing that the loss of A queen in a good colo
ny , lor fifteen day s during the honey bars
est means the loss of a good colony of bees.
Bill is this comm. in i-is lix.s of a queen
wilh our c i iiirisis" 1 reply that with most
it is not only common, bul universal. Sup
pose, as is generally true, the bees take
their natural course iu sanning. The
lat-s almost iiivariahly leave their hives be
fore the queen cells are capped. Suppose,
in one tlay these are t-upK-d; lu seven days
I He queen issues from the cell; for five days
she I'eiua.u- a virgin, though storms or oth
er unfavorable circumstances may prolong
this Iwo or three days. Two or three days

Her life's woik; and tints we Have UI least
fifteen days w ith -m c. i.lnny" ' queenleaa.
H'-uee ! all. rui iliiti t tilts k is perm 1 1 ted to
swarm bal lira lly lit a necessary sacrifice of
one good colony.
The remedy lor Ibis is of course kuowu to
every iiiiciiige nt, well informed apiarist.
We havejoniy to rein earlyiu the season a
good supply of extra M net us, whioh may be
kept iu nuclei and jused as occasion re
quires. 'Then when a colony swarms
which is almost sure to lie when starving Is
most active and loss of queen most fell a
new queen will be given al once to the des
titute colony, and there will be no ceaba--.
i- "i .-
lion In lt prosperity: or still better, new
colonies will oe formed artificially, and. giv
en a queen at once, in which case we caii
secure against too great depletion of bees,
which is sure to result, UDless much cau
tion is exercised, if natural swarming Is
permitted. By thus keeping good prolific
queens ever in readiness, we may not ouly
prevent expensive delays i n ti me of swarm
ing, or of increasing, but may supply the
place of any queen, which may be lost or
killed in handling our bees, or we may su
nercerieanv riueen. which from ageoroth
er reasons fail to do full duly.
The rule then which I would stale aud
enforce, though so generally disregarded by
apiarists, either Irom ignorance or sllil
more culpable indolence, no apiarist can
afl'ord to neglect. Never permit a colony to
oe without a prollnc.queen.
The second error to which I would call at
tention, is enlorced idleness ol ihe liees.
consequent, upon ill management on the
part of the apiarist. This may characterlzn
eiiner tne queen or workers, or boiii, and
may arise from a plurality of cause. First
men we wui consider idleness of the
queen. 1 he queen may be loiced to idle
ness, either from idleness of the workers,
wuen ner lusnucts impel ner to partial or
complete indolence; or sue may cease rlrotn
laying; simply because there are no en.i.iv
cells in which she can deposit. During tlie
past, turee y cam j. uavc oeeu ooserving with
particular reference to these two l.oinii
and can assure all of their truth. In tact.
they can be so easily verified by you all,
that X will not i-top to detail the proofs.
The.remedv for the first course it 1 1, .ltss
of the workers will appear iu the scqiile.
ine remeuy ior uie second no empty cells
in which to deposit is easily secured m
that invaluable auxiliary of the aniarv the
extractor. X have proved this autumn, dur
iug the wonderful yield of honey from Ihe
golden rods and the autumn flowers, that
the queen may be "forced to utter idleness
even though there is plenty of room for
storing in the supers, iu such cases, the use
of the extractor should never bo dispensed
with, even though extracted honev could
only be given away.
lue second rule then winch 1 would urge
upou all: never permit the brood chain I-.
to be without empty cells.
We next consider the idleness oi the
workers, tlie onuses which lead to it, aud
the remedies which luay be applied.
The fact that bees are not always busy
at theit legitimate business is known to i.i-
apiarists. Who has not noticed the iuie
cluster, when bloom is everywhere, ami
when nectar bathes every lloial envelop.

(boue-setj corsopsis, (tick-seed bidens, (beggar-licks),

Hardly escape an annual experience, which
shall make Him rejoice in peace and plenty.
If the apiarist is Hot thus fortunate, he may
yet hope to do much to lusure success. He
can hardly escape fruit blossoms, aud while

X have proved repeatedly that it pays tlcliiy
for the expense and trouble. Facli colony
should be prov Ided with u leeder. as surely
as witn a hive.
The second evil- lack of room in ft ore is
so easily remedied that we should suppose
ll never would occur. And, yet, i teci sale
in avering that could 1 accurately state tne
amount oi loss from this cause each year, 1
should present an array of figures Unit
would startle you. It is not only necessary
that the bees have room, but that Ihey have
room that they will utilize. Boxes, tier up
on Her, may bu placed hIipvc the hive, and
yet, if the bees f;.U to go info Ihem, they are
as etlectually bafked in their industry , pro
viding there is no other space, as though
there were no boxes. This is otie ol the
most common causes of outside clustering,
which Is so repellau t lo Ihe ills' int-ls of the
bees, and so vexations to Ihe apiarist- The
remedy then is, to always provide tn lime ot

aud if boxes are used, place Ihem m ar the

The third evil loo great heal ill the hive

the agreement is I could not ascertain. All

right to count the vote; that that question
mid privilege belongs to the Senate and
