L wetnher w?k favorably to open hives,
L/vook the long Ideal hives into my
^ aome apiary and transferred the
f\ boot and combs from the ehaiT hives
| into them. It was only necessary to
f lake throe frames at a time and lift
them from one into the other. To\
ward evening, when the bees stopped
flying', I closed the entrances with
/ wire not.ting, loaded tliein on a wagon
and drove to the bee house and they
wore soon arranged in position, 'l'he
next day, which was pleasant, the bees
mine out in great numbers and evidently
became somewhat confused as
to which were thcti*.rij/ht hives and
three hives were descried, the bees
having joined some of the others. But

[There Is Plenty of Advice for Brldea,

A thoughtful young man of Washington

to oomplote the picture. Nothing

"In order to impress the bride and

On the day of the execution his coffin
