This mu?t be accurate or the frames will nor fit. The two end pieces aasOals come between the sides, and, if necessary, be placed a little in or out to secure exact length. The supers are constructed In a similar way. The lumber for the hive frames should bo bonghi in long strips; elm ply ripped out of some boards. This is much cheaper and is Just as ust-fnl. Provide a mitre-box; fit it at the *>nd of a bench and adjust a stop block at the ?????? distance; take a few strips at a time, put them in the roitrebox. then push them until they Teach the stop, and saw off. Keep on repeating until you have enough frames cut. Cut the top and bottom pieces sonare, and these should come be? tween the end pieces. It is necessary co make the frames of an exact size. so that they will be uniformly alike and can be changed from one hive to another. Prevent Roup. Roup should be prevented, for It 1? ?exceedingly difficult to cure. More? over, many of the birds that are treated for roup never amount to anything afterwards, even if they are cured.

Neat morning when Hlankburn could not be aroused the lumberman became frightened and sent several ! miles for a doctor. He had no sue ? cess, although he tried all the means at his command. Hypodermics were administered, th? man was pinched, slapped and cuffed and finally strong ammonia was placed under his nos? trils. The fumes had no effect other than to make the sleeper cough, and in desperation the doctor tried tickling. Rearing R lank bum's feet, he took a hen-feather and anplied It gently. The man half opened an eye and rolled over. This satisfied the physi? cian that he could be awakened by the same mcajie that pnt him to s\eejt and be left the ! complete the job.
