Sunday is always a bad day on the
street cars in Rock Island, yesterday
was no exception.
A large number of people took the
ride over the new tower line, and a I
were profuse in their praise of it.

The work has been commenced on the

There should be more care about send

running to Twin-City park with them.

wheeled csrs on the road and some com

wheels to replace the worn out ones.
There was no complaint about how

For the number of extra men that were
worked into service yesterday, the new
rule requiring that all car men wear at
least caps and badges was fairly well
complied with. There were a few scape
graces, however, that either Supts. Hun

is a good on 3 and should be maintained.
One of thij guy wires of the electric

purely a mat .er of diet.
But inasmuch as there can be but one
queen in a hi -e, after the old queen mother
has gone away for good with a swarm,
those of the workers left behind guard the
sealed cells of the young queens that are
about to emerge, only permitting one to
get out at a time. If two escaped at once,
as sometimes happens, they would kill
each other. Perhaps one or two of the
new queens fly out of the hives with
swarms, but the workers which finally re
main allow tie next queen who comes out
to stab all t le others to death in their
cells, even helping her to perform this
cruel, but necessary operation.
Thus it hap Tens that comparatively few
queens are permitted to live. The bee
keeper, however, saves their lives by cut
ting off the superfluous queen cells from
the combs, s-.-lling the queens produced
from them fi r five dollars each and up
