How Many Dees In a Colony?
How many bees iu a colony? de
pends upon the season of year. How
ever, a few hundred bees and a queen
may be called a small colony, but I
believe an average colony contains
perhaps thirty or thirty-five thousand
bees, and during the honey season
when they are at their greatest
strength, they may have double the
above number, and when at their
lowest number, which is in late winter,
they may run down to ten thousand,
or much less. To get at any correct
estimate of this is rather diflicnlt, and
many give the average of a fair work

Preservation of F-gga.

This being a topic of general interest,
I beg to give hereafter an extract of
the results obtained, as described in

Twenty methods were selected for
these experiments. In the first days
of July 400 fresh eggs were prepared
according to these methods (twenty
eggs for each method), to ba opened

weight of which solution is 1.073, all
the eggs that swim on this liquid
weigh less, aud consequently are not

A Work Shop on the Farm.
A work shop on the farm is a great
convenience; every progressive farmer
hns one, and those who want to keep
up with the advancement of agricul
tural iuterests will follow suit. To
build a work shop is an easy job; it
doesu't take long aud costs but little,
if constructed as that dear old cabiu
iu which I used to work. My work
shop was about eight by ten feet aud
six feet from the floor to the loft,
covered with oak boards and having
no floor save the ground. It was
sided np with one-inch oak boards,
which were sawed from timber cut iu
the woods, the space between the
planks being covered with lb in oak
strips. The shop was provided with
an anvil, two strong hammers, a vise,
planes, saws, screw-drivers, chisels, a
shaving horse, brace aud a set of fif
teen bits, ranging from au eighth of
an inch to au iuch, spoke shaves, a
square and rule, etc., all of which
may be bought new for about $12. I
also had a harness-maker's outfit in
the shop, so when harness needed re
pairing 1 did not have to go eight or
ten miles to have it doue. Whenever
auy of the machinery got out of order
it could generally be repaired at home,
and thus save money and time. For
iuBtauce, when wheat is dead ripe and
ought to be cut as soon as possible,
the binder breaks, a rod or some
minor part gets out of order; then to
the blacksmith shop, unless you are
pretty well skilled iu the work of re
pairing iron aud have a shop aud
tools of your own, iu which case much
valuable time is saved.
. A workshop is, iu my judgment, as
essential to the farm us a spriug or
cistern, and I am ardently in lavor of
the latter. When there is work to be
done in the shop iu the winter, a small
stove is easily put up. Thus com
fortable quarters are prepared for the
workiueu. Oftentimes the farm har
ness b.'OaU, s.iujctiiues when the farmer
is in the midst of a very busy season.
Now comes the chance to use the
shop; or when there is uo particular
need for the brokeu harness, a rainy
day will come about when the farmer
may go to the shop and do his work iu
the dry, having tho necessary tools at
Furui implements, no difference
how strong they may be or how sub
stantially they may be constructed,
will frequently get out of order, thus
occasioning the use of a blacksmith or
wood workman. Now, ull such work
can be nnd ought to be done by the
farmers themselves, aud if they would
equip themselves with the tools, etc.,
which can be obtained for a small out
lay, they could do it. Let every
farmer be his own blacksmith, wood
worker, carpenter aud saw sharpener,
if you please. Din ing ruiny days on
the farm there should be work to do,
aud there is. The cross-cut saw needs
sharpening, the harness require mend
ing aud the axes ought to be ground,
aud a dozen other thiugs of this
character might be attended to. The
fanner needs to become au eutbusiust
on the subject of uttricultuie aud all
the biauohes connected therewith; he
must be dominated by that spirit of
onivardness which knows uo limit; he
must keep abreast of the times and
take all the near shoots possible to the
oul of success. Let us be alert and
wide awake; fanning will surely re
ward all who iu fact farm. The voca
tion is now regarded as the most in
dependent of any. Dewitt C. Wing,

but said his shoes were so bad he must go

due share of the advantages that modern
Invention and Industrial progress have won
for them. Men whose faculties bave been

reformers were doing more than to rescue
individuals, since they were fighting for
the liberty of the people, whose bodies aud
souls, and whose homes and happiness,
were virtually bought and sold by the great
brewer capitalists. This is a serious in
dictment, but there are facts which could
be cited to support It.
"The evil of Intemperance is generally
admitted," says the Itev. N. J. McManus at
the C. T. A. U. Convention Iu Hcrauton,
Penn., last summer. "Economically it Is a
poor Investment. Hociully It Is an Intoler
able nuisance, condemned alike by private
and public opiuion. Unified public opiuiou,
the law of the Mate, has adjudged drunk
enuess a crime punishable by flue and im
prisonment, and Justly so in the Interest of
Temperance News and Note.
Temperance helps to remove temptation.
Body and soul are benefited by abstinence
Hcientiflo temperance Is taught iu the
boys' aud girls' colleges at Conoepuion,
Chill, and the young people are greatly In
terested. Temperauce reform is one of the most
urgent of uutlonal remedies, because In
temperance is one of the most dangerous
of national evils.
One's own self-interest demands temper
ance; besides which, the good example
snown to others will undoubtedly Influence
some in the right direction.
Why should a man be discouraged be
cause iu the battle with his appetites he is
made cognizant of his weakness? Has he
not the weapon of prayer to overcome the
enemies of bis soul?
Every coming day Is a new leaf of the
book of life, white und unspotted. Let it
not be stained with drunkenness.
It Is an alarming aud discouraging fact
that in the homes of too mauy of our peo

and the vice above all vices that is directly
hostile to our religion of restraint and self

In the Shame-Fared Land.
The seclusion of women in Korea is
carried to the utmost limit. Ladies
out of doors wear a green mantle
which covers the whole conntenanoe
expect the eyes. Nor do thev willing
ly let even their eyes be seen and to
avoid meeting a man they will turn
into the house nearest at hand.
Travelers recount that the women are
taught to shun the opposite sex from
their earliest girlhood. They are
even exhortod to talk as little as may
be to their own husbands. What is
still more extraordinary is the innate
modesty of the men. This sentiment
imples them to work in jackets and
trousers in the hottest weather; while
the richer classes use a kind of bamboo
framework to keep the clothes, other

From Ihf Intttutrlal Meim, Jarkunn, Aflh,
The subject of this sketch Is fi'fly-sli
years of age, and actively engaged in farm
ing. When seventonn years old he hurt hi
shoulder and a few years after commnnoed
to have rheumatic pains In it. On taking
a slight cold or the least strain, sometimes
without any apparent cause whatever, the
trouble would start and ho would suffer the
most excruciating pains.
He sulTernd for over thirty years, and the
last decade has suffered so much that hs
was unable to do any work. To this the fre
quent occurrences ofdlzr.y spoils were add
ed, making blm almost a helpless Invalid
IN ALL SORTS or WEATHER
Ho tried the best physicians but without
being benefited and has used several specific
rheumatic euros. but was not. helped. About
one year and six monthsngo he read In this
paper of a case somewhat similar to his
which was cured by Dr. Williams' I'lnk
Pills and concluded to try this remedy.
After taking the first box ho felt some
what better, and nfter using three boxes,
the pains entirely disappeared, the dizzi
ness left him and he has now for over at
year been entirely free from all his former
trouble and enjoys better health than he,
has had since his bovhood.
He is loud In his praises of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People and will gladly
corroborate the above statements. H Is post
office address Is Lorenzo Noeloy, Horton,
Jackson County, Michigan.

life and richness to tho blood and restore
