At a rwent beekeepers" couvention a
lady meinlier from Campbellford, Ont.,
read an essay on Bee Keeping as an
Occupation for Women." Having given
the matter a fair trial for the last eight
years, she was of the opinion that there
is no reason why any woman of moder
ate strongt.li and intelligence should not
be able to take charge of an apiary of
from thirty to fifty colonies, with very
little assistance, and derive both pleasure
and profit from the employment; at the
wmie time she doubts whether there are
many who would suecee'd very well in
carrying on the business alone, though
of course there are a few who would.
While not believing that a farmer can
carry on both farming and bee keeping
successfully himself, she says: "But if
ho baa cither daughters or sons, who will
make a sjiecialty of this department,
Me keeping, it mav very advantageously
be combined with farming; and I do not
know of any reason why girls might not
make as great a buccess of the business
'Eternal vigilance is the price of suc
cess" in any business, and in none more
than in bee keeping. It is not only labor,
but a science, and will make constant
demands, not only on the patience, but
on the Uidily strength and intelligence of
those who engage in it; at the same time
there is a fascination about the business
which relieves it of all tediousness. A
woman will think of her bees, study
about them and liecomo bo interested as
to be almost paid for her work by the
love of it.
In conclusion the essavist 6aid: A
great deal of the work in the apiary is
quite as well adapted for women as for
men, and al.-o in the case of the honey
and preparing it for market. Where
they most feel their deficiency is in the
lack of skill to do the various carpenter
ing jobs that seem to lie inseparably con
nected with bee keeping.

American Agriculturist: Lay Uxirds
from the ice up the Uuuk to the top of
an old packing lox placed there. The
Ikix should bo two feet higher than the
lied of the wagon or sled in which the
e is to be hauled. The Ixiards will
soon become icv and the ice can easilv
be pulled or pushed along them to the
box, and from it to the wagon or hied.
The colder the weather the better for
cutting ice. It is always easier to slide
ice than to lift and wheel it. The prime
point of putting the ice in the house is
to lit the cakes closely together. The
less air confined among the cakes the
better the ice will keep. Make the crev
ices small and till them with jiowdered

may be regarded as the more iKipular

All white pluinaed geese, according
to Mr. IJeale, come under the denomina
tion of Embden, except the Irish, which
are not so dsignated. White geese
have one decided advantage over the
gray, namely their feathers are of
much more value. As this is unimpor

tain the same size as the Toulouse. The
question of size could soon be remedied
by careful breeding, but the geese re
quired for the early markets can be best
supplied by birds of this variety, as they
grow more rapidly. There can be no
doubt, however, that for the later mar
kets in this country the Toulouse will be
able to hold its own, for size is then of
great iuiitortance. The largest birds,
however, have seldom the finest flavor.
Nature seems to hold a balance in all
things, for when she gives excess of size
she seldom gives with it the same quality,
and a well fed Einlnlen is a juicy and ten

Specimens of this breed do not often at

In color the true Enilnlen is of a pure
