HOW BEES COLLECT POLLEN
Important Part Played by the Auricle
In the Process-Dust Gathers on
The pollen dust gathers on the body
hairs of the bees as the result of the
visita paid to the flowers. These hairs,
as seen under the microscope, are
branohed, and therefore are admirably
adapted to hold the pollen, writes F.
W. L. Sladen In the Gleanings in Beo
In the bumble beo (and probably
also the honey bee) the pollen dust In
the hairs on the thorax ls collected
on brushes on the Inner sides of the
metatarsi, or basal joint of the foot,
of the middle pair o? legs, which axe

moistened with honey from the tongue
to make the dust cohere. The pollen
dust in the hair on the abdomen is col
lected on brushes on the inner sides
Df the metatarsi of the hind legs, and
this is probably moistened by rubbing
the hind legs together.
After this the pollen is transferred
to the corbicula (or pollen-basket) on
the tibiae of the hind legs, where, as
every one knows, it accumulates into
a great lump as the result of repeated
contributions from the metatarsi. But
how does it get there? It is evident,
as Cheshire observed, that the pollen
on the right metatarsus is transferred
to the,left corbicula, and the .ollen
on the'left metatarsus is transferred
to the right corbicula. Cheshire sup
posed ("Bees and Beekeeping," 1886)
that the metatarsus discharges ks
pollen on the corbicula by scraping its
brush on the upper side of the tibia;
but I And that this is not the case. The
pollen is scraped off the metatarsal
brush by a comb (c) situated at the
end of the tibia on the inside, and it
passes into a small concave receiver
(d) that joins the comb; then, when
the leg is straightened, a projection on
the metatarsus called the auricle (e)
closes upon the receiver, compresses
the pollen, and at the same time forces
it out to the lower end of the corbicu
la, which is here slightly depressed
and almost wholly devoid of hairs.
The compression of the pollen in tho
receiver ls an essential part of the
process; for loose pollen grains such
as occur on the metatarsal brushes
would not hold together in the corbic
ula. In the bumble bee the anglo
between the surface of the receiver
and that of the corbicula is obtuse, and
the compressed pollen easily passes
from, the one to the other; but in tba
honey bee there is a sharp angle at the
corner, and the auricle bears a fringe
of hair3 (f) to guide the stream of
pollen to the corbicula; also the honey
bee's auricle ls evidently pressed back
by the pollen, for it has no other
means of escape.
POST PULLER SAVES LABOR
Implement Can Be Made of Strong
Tongue Taken From Some Dis
carded Farm Machine.
When a fence must he moved a good
post puller saves an unmerciful lot
of back ache and time, writes Gilbert
F. Parrish in the Wisconsin Agricul
Such a lifter can be made of a
strong tongue from some discarded :
farm machine. A strap of five-eighths
iron is made into a heavy claw at one
end and bolted on the tongue so that
the claw projects beyond the end of
the tongue. A heavy ring with a
stout chain attached ls also a part of
the outfit The ring is put over the
post down to tho ground. The claws
are caught under a link of the chain
and a block put under the pole as a J
fulcrum. This leverage will raise the
peat with very little effort Every .
farm ought to have such a lifter. Tho .
parts should bo solid and strong, for
the strain ls tremendous.
