STORAGE ROOZ-I NEEDED.
An Important Item Which rnforw
tunatr-Iy Is Orrrlnokrd by Qnlle
a Xomber of Drrkrrprri.
It is just as unreasonable to expect
bees to store you a crop of surplus
honey, without ample storagi-rocm
properly equipped, as anything can lie,
and to compiain at the bees for not
doing it is proof sufticient of lack of
intelligence. Yet it is done.
You will occasionally meet an old
"mossbaek" that will "tell you that
bees do not do any pood in his coun
try any more, aid that i'ify cannot
make a living- here, or they carnot

we all know that ttiere are t ns of
thousands of pounds of honey frtjinsf
to waste for every one pound gath
ered, for want of bees sufficient to
This country is improving- faster in
nectar-producing- blossoms by far
than the rate of increase of bees.
AVhile it may be true that some locali
ties are overstocked with bees, yet,
take it as a whole, it would be absurd
to think of.
The amount of storage capacity
properly applied for surplus honey
has all to do with the size of the crop,
and if we do not apply it we fail. We
may have a poor honey flow which
we cannot help, but we can get ready
for it if it comes, and it seldom fails
to pay expenses, to say the least.
The best standard hives are all
rquipped with the necessary storage
room for surplus, and if we bring
these into use we seldom make a mis
take in this particular.
There is a right time and a wron?
lime to add surplus boxes, but as a
rule they should be applied at the be
ginning of the principal honey flow
sf the season. Colonies must be
ftrong- to at once accept them, and
weak colonies should not have them
put on until they become strong. Su
pers should also be added to a colony
when it is crowded for space in the
breed chamber, and thus prevent it
from swarminp-. if possible. A. U,

loose stones beneath the house, and

NOTES FOR BEEKEEPERS.
Never pull up the cover that the bees
have so closely sealed down unlets com
pelled to do so.
In all hives there should be three
personages the queen, the worker bee
fend the drone.
lleckeeping combined with fruit
growing enables one to take a double
:rop from the same land.
Any extra work about the apiary
fcheuld be attended to and1 everything
potten in readiness before the bees be
gin to swarm.
Worker bees, being undeveloped, fe
males, may now and then tie sufficiently
jeveloped to lay eggs, but their eggs
will produce only drones.
The worker bee does all the work of
Ihe hive, gathers in the honey, pollen
and' water, secretes the wax, builds the
icuib. ripens and caps the honey.
When returning frames to the hive,
adjust them slowly and carefully. Do
not slide the frame to its place at one
push: slide it up slowly, just to toutlx
'he next frame. Maine Farmer.
Ilpekeepins for Farmers.
D. X. Kitchie is very tmphatic in the
belief that every farmer should keep
bees, and says a farmer who hasn't one
or more colonies is not up to the times,
fie thinks not live per cent, of the farm
trs have honsjv en the table for fond,
ind he probably might have made the
percentage much smaller without dis
tressing the truth. A notable statt
nent is this: "I can show you farm
:rs living by me who had not had acrop
:f clover seed for 20 years, until I
uoved here and bred my bees to such a
size that they can work on the retl
:1ovt; and now they are getting large
ic-lds of the very best of seed." liusy
The recent meeting of the Undertak
ers' Association of Indiana led to a dis
cussion of the proposed manufacture
of burial caskets out of glass, and it
was decided almost unanimously that
if the project proved feasible it would
result in good both to the undertak
ers and to the people who seed their
services, for prices could fee made uni
form and decorations or expensive
trimmings would be useless. It was
said, reports the New York Sun, that
such catkets would be airtight and
that bodies could be preserved indefi
nitely. Another advantage would be
'at they could be viewed without
, ..;.enirg the coffin. It is said that these
caskets are to be cast much the same
as plate glass and that molds corre
sponding to all the various sizes will be
made for thtir manufacture.
As an incident to the discussion sev
eral stories with reference to thesir.es
of coffins and to the ideas of persong
regarding burial were told, and it was
said that some of the largest coffin
ever made were for Indiana people. For
instance, the supposed largest coffin
ever made was for John Hanson Craig,
the Hendricks county giant who trav
eled with a number of shows and was
widely advertised as the largest man
in the world. The inside measurement
of his coffin were seven feet four inches
in width and two feet two inches in
depth. He was carried to his grave in
a two-lhorse wagon, because the hearse
would not admit the coffin, and it re
quired eight men to carry the remains
from the wagon to the grave. Jlrs. Lida
Crecraft, of Kussiaville, was another
for whom the coffin had to be specially
made. It measured six feet six inches
in length and was 3S inches wide and
30 inches deep. Mrs. Craig, wife of
the Hendricks county giant, required
a coffin of nearly the same dimensions
as Mrs. Crecraft, and it is said that
it took nearly 40 yards of goods to
ntcke her shroud.
Dazzel Foster, who lived and died in
Warren county, had a desire for a fine
coffin and had one made as nearly like
President Garfield's as possible. It was
made by a Springfield (O.) manufactur
er, and the cost was $-G(. Foster was
C2 years of age when he died, and the
contract for the coffin was let two
years before. It is said that he took
a decided aversion to women when :i
young man. and for morethan 40 years
he occupied a room in the old home
stead and r.o woman was ever permit
ted to enter it. Just before his death
he engaged every vehicle in the town
and country around and had a notice
published i;i the- l.ical papers inviting
all the people to his funeral and prom
ising a free ride. A special invitation
was sent to every woman in the town
to attend the funeral and see how a
man who had lived without women all
Lis life could be buried.
In sharp contract with Foster's prep
arations fur his funeral were those of
William Decker, whose coffin was made
in this state, though he lived at Xiles,
Mich. The coilin was ordered some
years before his death and was painted
a bright Vermillion, and is said to be
the only red coffin that was ever made
in the state. On the name-plate was
engraved this inscription, which was
duplicated later on the headstone of
his grave: "Here lies the body of Wil
liam Decker, who always paid 130 cents
on the dollar."
Jesse W. Knox, who died at his home
near Amboy. had primitive ideas re.
rarding burial, and these were carried
out to the letter. He directed that a
straight box should be made out of
two-inca oak. dovetailed together, and
dressed. He had two inches of sawdust
placed in the bottom, and upon. this his
remains were placed. He was able to
afTord an expensive funeral, and his
relatives protested against his direc
tions, but he refused to recall them,
and said that he wanted to avoid all
James Dewherst, a farmer of Craw
ford county, went to Leavenworth one
day and seemed to be attracted by the
Collins which the undertaker was dis
playing, lie priced one and then an
other, and finally got the undertaker
to fix a lower price if he would take
two. He left without making the pur
chase, but a day or two after drove up
to the undertaker's and got two cof
fins, one for himself and on for his
wife, paying each. He declared that
he had got a bargain, and the coffins
are row in his house ready for the oc
casion as soon as it comes.
Two coffins have been made in this
state for persons who wanted to be
buried in reclining positions. Another
instance which was noted was the or
der of a physician who wanted a glove
fitting casket and had it made accord
ing to actual measurements of his

contains Iron and Quinine put up in correct

Iron acts as a tonic while the Quinine .drives
the malaria out of the system. Any reliable
