IiloHlrutetl Directions for Finding Oat If
the Combs Hue Had It. !
To be able to recognize promptly the
combs that have once had the disease
known as foul brood is ;in important mat
ter indeeil to the apianan. To assist in
this decision we here five a reprint of a
sketch sent by a Michigan beekeeper to
Gleanings in Bee Cul ure, with this let
ter: "I send you a rough pencil sketch, giv
ing something of inj ideas of how it
should appear. I also send you a piece of

comb containing the diseased and dried
up larvjo. To see the dead larvaj to the
best advantago stand with your face to
ward the point of the compass where the
sun is and hold the cot lb down in front of
you, with what was the lower edge away
from yon, so that th sun lights up the
upper side, and sotha': your sight strikes
across it at an angle of 30 or 40 degs.
This will make the presence of the dis
ease very evident."
Following are comments made edito
rially ou the foregoing letter by Mr.
In a former article Mr. Taylor tall:
"The dead brood is entirely drifid up
mere scales, almost the color of the 'jomb
itself, lying fast to the lower sides of
the cell and drawn back more or less
from the opening." In the sample of
comb sent there seomed to bo a sort of
residue a little darker in color than the
comb itself, lying fatt to the lower sides,
as explained. It is, perhaps, exagger
ated a little bit in the engraving, but the
purpose is to show a Unit how it lies on
the bottom sides ol the cells, or what
are the bottom sides when in the hive.
It seems these seal s are nothing but
maturated masses f foul brood dried
up, and which the bt es are loath to clean
Measuring Hay in liulk.
Hay, whether in mow or stack, differs
so much in weight, compared with its
bulk, that no rule can be given that will
determine thenumlwr of tons with much
accuracy by measure merit. For example,
it is variously estimated to require from
100 to W cubic feet for a ton, according
to the kind of grass mil the time since it
was packed away. The solid contents of
the body of hay are avst found in cubic
feet by arithmetical rules of measure
ment, which are t len divided by the
number supposed to be required for a
ton. To find the cubic feet in a mow
multiply the length, width and depth to
gether. To fmd tlte cubic feet in a con
ical stack multiply ihe area of the base
by one-third the p rpernlicnlar height.
Another rule sometimes given is for long
or square stacks; to multiply the length
in yards by the wid h in yards and then
by half the height in yards, and divide
by 15. For circuhu stacks, multiply the
square of the circut lference in yards by
four times the h-igl t in yards and divide
by 100. the quotient by 15. In these cases
lifteen cubic yards of well settled hay
are supposed t a make a ton.
A I'nroiiH Soil for Corn.
Professor Rolierts in a paper on corn
culture, read at the annual convention of
New York dairymen, said:
A great point is g lined i n corn culture
if the corn is planted while the ground
is open and porous, allowing the heat to
enter and warm tha soil, thus starting
the seed quickly md so get a start of
the weeds. From five to ten days after
planting the com may be cultivated, and
far closer to the row and far more rapid
ly than could be dc ne after tho corn has
appeared aliove the ground. All culti
vators should have many fine teeth, in
order that the surface of the land may
be fined and leveled. When moisture is
somewhat deficiei.t, cultivating with
fine toothed implei lents is indispensable.
Corn should be cultivated five times
during the season and the last time as
the corn begins to silk. The roots should
be broken as little as possible, and every
succeeding cultivation should be shal
lower and further from the row than the
A Ifomen.acle Rromler.
A California woman tells in The
Fanciers' Monthly how she is success
fully raising some biddies from the
time of hatching. She says: "At night
I keep them in a bDxhalf full of chicken
feathers, and for a cover I have a board
to fit the box with strips of flannel
tacked on the under side. Of course the
box has holes lmred in the sides for
fresh air. My br joder 'takes the cake'
off of any old h.-n. My chicks, 1 am
sure, wouldn't be any more comfortable
under an old hen. When the sun comes
out good I put the m out doors in an old
bathtub, the bottom of which is covered
with gravel and shells, and 1 put their
feathers out to air and then 1 warm their
cover at night before I cover them.

There are no disadvantages to be cited
against obtaining seeds, trees, etc., front

is equally true, fays The American Gardening.
