necessary condition to expect surplus

which happened, no he wished, to strike

paint is not important. I have bored

"apace between the comb&' half the time.
fitting the box on top I never found i:
ecessarr to use the 'cold water' to drive
tne bees inside, and there is not the least
doubt but it was a superfluity in his case.
Five weeks for storing twenty pounds of
that time o' afterward short of eight or
ten days, except in rare instances, of per-
, haps one in fifty. Imagine the beea
j driven out without a quoen they might

at least in the hppinninjr. without fief.
a he article in question continues: 'If

üone helore swarming, tnere would be a
loss of young bees.' I can assure you
there would be j ust as much loes of brood
immediately after, bee ause the old queen
continues to deposit eggs up to the day
of her departure with the first swarm;
all these most mature to prevent loss of
brood. Three weeks time is required
for this purpose, and three or four day
over for drones;conscquently three weeks
from the first swarm is tho Droner time
tor driving. The young queen who has
taken the placa of her mother in the old
stock will have by this time commenced
j her maternal duties. Now as to the man
ner recommended for driving, I think it
would be objectionable to the operator
in nearly everv instance. There is noth
standing 'vail and mittens.' I hava tried
several methods, rnd the best method I
have found is very simple. I takt an
empty hive the size of the full one ncv-

. a . a
vent Deeg issuing ana rap on the lOWei
one a few times, and wait five minutes
for the bees to fill themselves. Then
rapidly conlinue the drumming on dif-
fereol sides of the lower hive ten or fif-
tear, minutes, at the eud of which lime
most of the bees will be in the upper
( hive; now, to fac:li:ate the operation, the
upper one should be put on the old stand
and another empty one set over to re-
; ceive the remaining bees driven up by
the 6ame processs, which may be jarred
out in front of the other hive when they
readily euter. Should any yet remaiu
continue the process. They are not dis
posed to sting iu this stage of operation,
and 'tail and mittens' are not very es
scntial'during any part of it.
One word more about the neeessirv rf
driving. We are not told what is to bo

j expect any one to do it for the amue-
