want to say n word in defonso of tbo
much-abused boney bee. Every
summer wo hoar moro or ICHS com
plaint about the bees eating np tho
grapes, damaging peaches, otc.
It is strange some people don't
know their beat friends. That tho
little honey beo is a great benefit to
tho fruit grower is well known to
everyone who lias taken tho trouble
to inform himself on thc subject.
It has been proven time and nguiu
that thc bees never break the hull of
tho grape. To prove this you may
tnko a prefect bunch of grapes and
plaeo it in a hivo of bees and it will
remain thoro until it dries up, and
will never bo disturbed by tho bees
unless thc skin is broken. After tho
sparrows break tho hulls, or wet
weather bursts tho grapes open, thou
thc bec comes in, take;; up tho juice
that is going to waste, and right
there is where the bees come in with
their help? They take up tho juice
before it ferme ats and runs down on
tho other berries and spoils them,
which it will do inside of forty-eight
hours, if the bees do not clean up the
cracked berries. So instead of doing
harm they are a benefit to the grape.
But this is not tho only place
where tho little busy bees come in
with their help. The first anti great
purpose for which bees were created
was for aiding in tho fertilization of
flowers of different kinds. The
honey, as food for man, comes in as
secondary. To provo this wc only
find honey or nectar secreted in such
flowers that are incapable of self-fer
tilization, while thoso capablo of be
ing fertilized by the agency of the
wind, etc., secrete no nectar. For
example, we find no nectar in wheat,
corn, oats, rye, etc., all these being
capable of self-fertilization by tho
rustling of their stalks in tho wind.
Then thoro aro all the clovers, the
squash and the vine family, none of
which are capablo of being fertilized
through tho process applici.'olo to the
first. All the..3 last named secrete
honey for thc sole purpose of entic
ing bees, flies, otc, for fertilization,
so that they may mature seed and
perpetuate their kind.
The same thing holds good with
trees of all kinds. In fact, if it wore
not for tho bees there would be very
little perfect fruit in the country,
because to make f'vit set and grow
to perfection the po. on must be car
ried from one bloom to another, and
the honey bee is the main agency for
this work, and should be welcomed
in every orchatd and vineyard. It is
claimed for the industry of bee-keep
ing what can be claimed for no other,
namely : It does not take from any
other thing that which would make
it moro valuable in returning tho
Haine, but on the contrary adda to its
value. 1\. It. CAMAK.

An Important and Valuable Indox.
There is no hotter basis upon
which to estimato thc civilization, or
rather the material advancement, of
a people than tho prevalence of good
roads among them. They form the
local arteries of trade, reaching out
to fountain heads from which the
waters of trade are gathered to form
thc great streams and oceans of com
merce. Good roads aro good tax
payers, because they relieve the far
mers and tradesmen of tho country
of their heaviest burdon, for it is
well-known that ono of tho most con
stant, most 'roublcsome and most
wearing of all the taxes they pay
is the transportation of their pro
ducts to market over bad roads.
Prosperous communities, therefore,
aro made by good roads, and, in
turn, good roads are an index to the 1
prosperity of a community.-J. li.

BALTIMORE jj lill.
Now Yoik and Philadelphia Contribute to the
Advanoomont of tho South.
Baltimore awl the South aro to bu
jointly congratulated at tho com
manding financial power which this
city is now developing, because it
means tho most forceful i?fl?etico for
Southern upbuilding which has evor
boon turned upon that scotion. New
York and Philadelphia have con
tributed largely to tho material ad
vanoomont of the South ; in fact, it
hus been estimated that New York
investments in tho South aggregate
as much ns a billion dollars; but
neither Now York nor Philadelphia
has over made tho dovolopmont of
the South a loading foaturo of its
financial operations. Baltimore, on
tho contrary, is so pre-eminently
Southern by virtuo of its location,
its sentiment and its trade interests
that it must look to tho expansion
and upbuilding of that Hcotion ns ita
chief field of operation.
In tho South there is undeveloped
wealth sufficient to profitably employ
practically unlimited capital and to
furnish a broad field for tho greatest
business energy and ability of this
remarkable g?n?ration. Tho natural
resources and advantages of the
South aro groat enough to croate
industries and trade equaling in
magnitude tho cntiro mining, manu
facturing and commercial interests
of tho country. Economic changes
in finance and in thc world's general
business interests brought about by
the revolutionizing iniluonccs of
modern inventions and methods
changes beyond human control-aro
now forcing tho world's manufactur
ing interests to tho place of cheapest
production ?- thu placo whore tho
raw material is found in tho greatest
Abundance and most cheaply turned
into tho finished product. Thia
means that tho South is to be tho
greatest manufacturing country on
the face of tho earth. What that
means can bo faintly comprehended
when it ia remembered that Eng
land's wealth and power aro baaed
DU her manufactures; that thc
United States has $0,000,000,000
capital invested in factories whose
annual product ia valued at ovoi
M0,000,000,000, or three times thc
Lotal annual value of all agricultural
products of tho country, and thal
the 5,000,000 banda now employed
in thc industrial interests of thu
country receive about $2,500,000,
OOO a year in wages. Of this vast
industry-the foundation of om
marvelous national progresa-tin
basis on which Nev/ York, Philadel
phia, Boston, Chicago, Pittsburg
und the other great cities of th h
country rest-tho South bas now
less than one-tenth. The middle

In viow of thcBo faota, it is moat
opportune, that liait?inoro ia becom
ing Buflioiontly strong financially to
furnish tho unpitnl ncoded for tho
dovolopmont of tho South. Some
yoara ago tho Morcantilo Trust and
Deposit Co. was organized, largoly
for tho purpose of finanoing South
ern railroad and municipal scouritics.
Ita great auocoss onused others to soo
tho opportunity, and thou canto tho
Baltimore Trust Co. and thc Mary
land Trust Co., both of which havo
been activo factors in Southern af
fairs. Tho Morcantilo Company has
a capital of $2,000,000 and a surplus
of $8,000,000 ; tho Baltimore Trust
and Guarantco Co.'s capital is
$1,000,000 and surplus $1,500,000;
tho Maryland has a capital of $1,
000,000 and surplus of $f>00,000. A
fow months ago tho Continental
Trust Co. was organized with a capi
tal and surplus of $4,000,000, largely
ovor-Bubsoribcd ; thc Citi/.ons' Trust
Co., with a capital and surplus of
$2,500,000, and now thc Interna
tional Trust Co, hnB boon organized
with a capital and surplus of $8,000,
000, and, >ut $12,000,000 of bona
fido subscriptions were received. In
addition to theso wo have tho Mary
land Casualty Co., probably the
largest company of its kind in thc
United States ; tho American Bond
ipg and Trust Co., capital and sur
plus $1,500,000; the Fidelity s and
Deposit Co., capital and surplus
$2,000,000 ; tho Guardian Trust Co.,
tho United StatoH Fidelity and
Guaranty Co., and Hovcral other
strong companies.
The total actual cash capital
roprcscntcd in those companies ?a
over $25,000,000. Their success
has been so great that tho selling
valuo of their stock runs from 00
por cent abovo par to bH)0 per cont,
and ovon theso prices aro not near
ns high as for Bimilnr ?tocks in
Now York. Tho organization of
theso great financial enterprises is
simply a new form of banking, with
broader power? than national bank?
possess, enabling them to finance
great industrial and railroad under
takings. With thi? vast aggregation
of wealth concentrated upon 'be de
velopment of the South tbeiu must
como a moro rapid advancement of
that Hcotion than wc have over seen.
Thc South affords room for the pro
fitable employment of all this capital,
und the operation of these companies
will bring Baltimore and tho South
into tho closest trade relations. Thc
Meld is broad enough for tho fullest
development of all these strong finan
ical companies. With their influence,
backed by that of our private banker?
and national bank?, Baltimore pro
misos to take a loading position ns a
