A series of articles on Practical Bee Keeping. By Joel S. Gitfillan, Newark, Del Swarmi •When to Expect. "God made bees and bees made honey. God made man and man made money: Pride made the devil end the devil made sin. So God made a coal pit and put the devil In." If the bees would only work away and not botheF about swarming, the average bee man would be happy. But Just when the bees are In the beat condition to produce an abundance of honey, they get crazy over swarming and that Interferes with the honey crop, might be pardonable on their part if they would only have some way of letting the bee keeper know where they were going to swarm. However, while there is no positive sign to In dicate Just when a swarm Is going out, there aro several signs that point very strongly to the time. In the first place, the colony will begin the building dt queen cells before they send out a swarm. most decidedly But even this I And usually the queen cell will be sealed before tho swarm Issues. Thus the ninth day after the egg Is deposited In the queen cell the Is most likely to Issue, other things being favorable. Usually, also, on the morning of the day they are to swarm there is little activity In the hlvo, few bees going out or In. But tho swarm may go out before there Is even a trace of a queen cell; but this Is tho exception and may be caused by a very close and t*t day and the hiv« standing In the sun. Bees clustering on the outside of tho hive is an Indication that the hive is too full of bees or there is need of more ventilation, but is not always sign that they are ready to swarm with the hive shaded from the direct rays of the sun, and a large entrance giv ing plenty of ventilation, the presence of sealed queen cells Is a pretty sure sign that a swarm may Issue any day. The first swarm seldom goes away far without first clustering. It has the old queen, .and she Is heavy and soon seeks a place to rest, but the second ary swarms, having young queens, fre quently go direct from the hive to the woods. But no second swarm should bo allowed to Issue from any hive. It reduces the number of bees to such a small number that they will be un able to produce much honey. After the first swarm Issues, open tho old hive and cut out all queen cells but one. This will leave them only the one queen, and they will not swarm. Another way Is to remove the old hive to a new location, at least five or six feet feet away and put the swarm on the old stand. The bees going out Into the fields from the old hive on the new stand will come back to the old stand where the swarm Is and will strengthen It and will thus so weaken the old colony that It will not send out any more swarms. How shall we get the swarm when it goes up on the top of a tall tree? A swarm catcher, which Is nothing more or less than a wire cage with a lid hinged to It. and attached to a pole. This Is put up to the swarm and the swarm caught In It and the lid brought down on a limb and Is by It brought Into place. A pole with a cir cular wire fastened to It and a piece of mosquito netting In the shape of a bag fastened to It makes a good one. This Is brought up under the bees and they are scraped oft the limb by the wire and then by a half turn the wire effectually closes the bag and the bees can be carried to a hive and dumped In front of It. The clipped wing method of hiving swarms. If you are sure to be near when the swarms Issue you can avoid much of the work and worry of the swarming season by clipping the wings of all queens. Then when the swarm Issues, the queen, unable to fly. can be easily found hopping about on the hive. The bees swarm - ] ground in front of the | will cluster, but not having the queen with them, will soon return to the hive again. But In the meantime the new hive for the swarm Is brought, and having removed the old hive to a new location the empty hive Is put in place and when the bees return the Queen Is allowed to run In with them an< ^ behold, your swarm Is hived, There need be no fear of being stung by the queen. You can pick her up without fear and keep her until the bees have discovered her absence, when they will all return. But everybody cannot depend upon being near when the swarm Issues, nor even at home at the time, and It might not be best to clip the wings of the queen. The swarm could not go away but after finding that the queen could (not go with them after several at tempts, they would kill the queen and then go oft with a young queen Just hatched. There Is no doubt that the swarms do often cluster In places that It Is difficult to get them Into a hive. One of the difficult places is on the trunk of a tree or around a large limb. It is a comparatively easy they are on a small limb that can be easily cut off. or from which they can be easily shaken, but they cannot ha shaken off the trunk of a tree. If tho hive can be placed so that the entrance will be up against the bees and then them off on to the alighting hive, they would get started In, and when once started the others hear the welcome call and all would soon find their way In. Then occasionally we find a queen that persists In flying back instead of going Into the hive. In that case there is likely to be trouble until she can be gotten in. In probably nineteen eases out of twenty the queen will make haste to enter the hive Just as soon as the bees entering give tfce usual call, but the twentieth may give one some trouble. Being away one day when a swarm came out, my wife, who usually has no difficulty :n hiving them, had shaken tho bees down three times and every time they had all gone back to the tree again. She was afraid to shake them again lest they might go Sure enough, when I shook matter when scrape board of the away. them down they took wing and start ed for the woods. I -started after them and kept my eyes on them as they passed far above the tops of the trees and then beyond the woods they kept the even tenor of their way. I was keeping very good pace with them until I reached the railroad, when they went on unimpeded, but a long freight train that seemed to be In no particu lar hurry kept me back. When I did get over I went on and soon overtook the bees along a hedge. They were not clustering, but the leaves of the hedge were covered with bees for a distance of some 200 feet. They seem ed to be only resting. X ran hack and forth along the hedge In hopes of get ting a glimpse of the queen. Fortu nately my search was soon rewarded. She was resting quietly on a leaf. I lost no time In securing her. Then the question arose in my mind, what GRACE GEORGE GROWS GRACEFUL People, always laughed at Miss George's Christ an name—Grace. At 20 she was 4 ft, il and tipped the Fair banks at 310—and her intimates called her "Gracie" and "Dolly" and such other pet names. She often thought that she saw a sting In those terms of endearment and finally decided to turn the scales of her loving friends by springing a surprise on them. So sue let It be known that she was going away on a long Journey. She did not budge from her house for 30 days, but took religiously during that month, three times a day and before bedtime, one teaspoonful of the excellently ef fective Marmola Prescription. The re sult was she got down from 210 to 170 She never told her friends what did It, but, credit where It is due. It was the Marmola Prescrit, tlon: Marmola. 1-2 ounce Fluid Extract Cas cara Aromatic and 3 1-2 ounces Syrup Simplex, which can be had at any good druggist's for a trilling sum. 1-2 ounce should I do? I could go homo with tha queen, confident that tho bees, as soon as they discovered that the queen was not with them, would return home. But It was a question whether the bees might not beat me home; In which case they would return to their old hive, and I would have the same trouble another day. 1 concluded to try to arrange It so we could all go homo together. 1 found a piece of mosquito netting In my pocket. I placed the queen In that and hung It up on a stick, and In a few minutes the bees began clustering around the queen. When they had all clustered 1 pulled up the stick and carried them all home and shook them In front of an empty hive. Sometimes the swarm will not stay hived, but will swarm out and leave. There are two ways to prevent that. One is to place an entrance guard of perforated" zinc at the entrance—the Iierforatlons large enough to allow tho worker bees to pass In and out freely, but too small for the queen to pass through. Another way Is to take a frame of brood from another hive and place It In the new hive, and they would not leave It then. The question is sometimes asked; "To whom does a swarm of bees be long that clusters on the property of another man?" They belong to the owner from whom they came, provid ing he can prove them to be hts bees. The owner has the same right to go on to another man's property to take back a swarm of bees that he has to go on another m^yi's properly to take hack his horse o"his have strayed out there. But If the bty-s should enter a hollow tree on another man's property, the owner could not cut down the tree to get them. The bees still belong to him. but he cannot destroy his neighbor's property to take them. cow that might On the other hand the owner of the tree cannot appropriate the bees, because they belong to his neigh bor, from whom they came. The only way In a case of that kind would be for the neighbors to decide upon an agreement In the matter. of the bees to take them, pro Allow tho owner riding he pays something for cutting the tree or the owner of the tree pay the owner of the bees something for But the mere fact that b««s another man's property does not the bees go on give that man property In the bees any more than when a cow or horse should stray over and to his property.
