"It bas been a moat remarkable year,"
said one of the prominent bee keepers of
Scott county, to a Davenport Leader re
porter, "a moat remarkable year for bee
keeper. We had no honey to sell last
year, and we will hae nona this year.
More than that, the beet will bare to be
fed if we expect to keep then."
The speaker waa J. J. Nigel, one of the
oldest bee keepers in this section, and
one who is as thoroughly acquainted with
bis subject as any. Out of the 200
stands of bees, be bas not a pound of
honey to sbow for them. "Bee keepers
are reducing tbeir stands," said the gen
tleman. "I have brought mine down to
150. It costs too much to feed them, for
bees are very particular about what Ihty
eat. Only the best white sugar can be
fed to them. I have fed two barrels this
fall at five cents a pound."
"What is the cause of it? ventured
"Something in the weather." replied
the gentleman. "There were plenty of
flowers, but there was no honey in them.
The bees would fly about in a listless sort
of a way, as if discouraged; they knew
there was na honey. They got just
enough honey out of the flowers to keep
"Another strange thine about this year
is the fact that the bees would not swarm.
There was no use of swarming for there
was no honey to store.
"Some of the bee keepers whose stands
were located near large groves of oak or
box elder, have a grade of black , honey
which they ars selling. Now there is an
insect which infest the leaves of the trees,
box elder and oak being the worst, which
pucctures the leaf, and cauees the juice
to exide. This juice is what we call
honey dew; but there is no nectar in it.
It is not hooey. The bees gathered that
where they could; it makes the black
honey. You can not detect it very easily
in the comb, because the comb itself is
white, but on breaking it, it can easily be
dettc!ed. Some of it passes through the
animal a vertible bug juice. This is the
black honey that you find in the market
now. Look out for it. It has a disa
greeable taste which makes it uufit for the
"Is this shortage in the honey crop
universal?" asked the reporter.
"It extends from California to Massa
chusetts," responded the bee man. "Our
bee journals are full of it. Scott county
bee keepers have all experienced the
same thing. There are one or two ex
ceptional d:stric'j though; one is the dis
trict just north of the Waps;e. It is
strange that a district so near should
have a good crop while we have none.
The other district is in northern Illinois.
Here is a bill of honey that an I.linois
bee man shipped me. It is basswood
honey clear, beautiful and very pleasant
to the taste. They seem to have plenty
of basswood for the bees to feed on in
that region." 'llyney will be a luxury
then this fall," ventured the reporter.
"Yes. sir, honey will come high, unless
it be this black bonev, but you tell the
people to look out for it it is notbiue
but bug juice."
