but Pliaraoh found the work in
his Temple of Thebes effectually
delayed by a strike and as serious
a situation to face as ever a New
England manufacturer had to
The temple that was to astound
the world and stand as a monu
ment to Egypts greatest king
was under way Its graceful out
lines were well defined oven its
gorgeous interior decorations
were begun the alabaster wall
Inlaid with jewels representing
the fairest lowers on the banks
of the Nile were nearing perfec
tion The masons whose magic
hands were erecting this archi
tectural wonder received little
cash but large supplies of food
the lirst of every mouth These
supplies were to last them a
whole month Hut even thirty
three centuries ago things went
wiong in the commissary depait
meut and contractors grew rich
Time after time the food gave
out before the month had passed
uud the builders suffered But
once when the supply lusted only
two weeks the proverbial worm
doubled in its tracks and
the oppressed in its wrath
The contractor like all
his kind was obdurate lie de
elated the men had wantonly
wasted their rations mid should
have no more
The body of workmen marched
to the contractors house and
squatted at his palace gate and
vowed they would stay there till
they had justice They spoiled
the view their nose disturbed the
contractor and he weakened
When he offered to compromise
by laying the matter Jbefore Phar
j Aoh lhe obiikuQSviiAhat victiry
was theirs They grasped the
fact as fully in those days as now
that when a contractor yields an
inch the King of Labor can sweep
him a mile
Pharaoh wanted his temple
The bagatelle of a few million
sacks of corn was nothing to him
Pliaraoh ordered the request of
the workmen granted and all
went well for n time But the
same thing occurred next month
The men encouingod by their pre
vious successes struck again
They would have been the delight
of New Bedford mill hands and
would have aroused the envy of
New York cloakmakers But
again they were victorious and
the big granaries had to bo
drawn upon before they would
resume the woik thnt was to be
Egypts pride
So from the beginning success
has perched upon the banner of
the strikers

When Aaron Snyder of King
ston took his honey bees out for
a drive Ui the country the other
day andeft them to spend a few
ty he created quite a breeze of
excitement among the persons
along the road and had to stop
many times to explain what he
was doing The Idea of sending
bees to the country for the bene
fit of their health Is lull of novel
ty to the average man who has
come to regai d a bee as the most
cianky and pestiferous thing
Yet as Mr Snyder explains
there is an excellent leason for
taking the bees to the country
and it is really no more remark
able than taking rows to pasture
The principle is in the inula the
same although by moving the
bees even more is accomplished
for the color and quality of the
honey they make is thus con
tioiled It is a fact well known
to bee fanciers that bees will on
ly go about three miles from the
flowers Another fact equally
well known is that there is in
buckwheat blossoms a larger
amount of honey than in any oth
er flower that grows in any quan
tity This honey although dark
in color has a very agreeable
llavor and is preferred to any
Buckwheat is not very plenti
ful within thiee miles of Mr Sny
ders apiary and therefoio ho in
moving 100 hives of bees to n
location in the country where
they can llnd plenty of It Half
of these bees are taken to Kyser
ike nnd the other half to a place
about two miles north of Stone
ltidge When the buckwheat 1ms
died off the bees will be brought
back to their home in Kingston
Mr Snyder has kept bees for
twentyflvo years and has made a
study of their habits which fits
him tc can for them with the re
quired profit When nskedjiLhis
bees wouldk not get lost taking
them into a strange country liq
said No there is no danger of
that if thq hives are always
moved while the bees are in them
But if while the bees are out in
the fields gathering sweets the
hive is moved they will leturn
straight to the place where the
hive wus and cluster there A
bee returns on a route straight
as a bee line to the place it
starts lrom nnd as the queen bee
remains in the hive the bees go
light on making honey in this
hive according to their nature
It is said that the idea of mov
ing bees to pasture is carried on
to a large extent along the Mis
sissippi where tie hives are
taken from place to place down or
up stream on flat boats thrt an
chor dining the day ard are
moved on nt night while tin bees
are all in the hives thus 1 eeping
them in fresh pasture all of the
