The i»un was veiling itself behind the Western hills; uighl was throwing its sable mantle ovtr every object, as though mourning its departure; the winds sighed in uui-«on, ami all nature •fennel to miasita light aud warmth on thia cold February night. None more so than tbe young girl, whose form completely enveloped in a targe cloak and almost concealing her features, caiefully made hi r ivay over tbe rough road. As *h<» approached tbe thicker parts of the woods her way became iu*rt» difficult. Kvery tiuy twig that snapped beueath b. r tread can.-ed b -r to hesitate and look around on every side. Assuring herself that she was un observed, ahe would proceed cautiously until ajcatu startled. The moaning of the wind anion# the leafless brauuh-*s CMUstd their long skeleton arms to clash together sts if bidding dettauee to her further progress. Placing her hand upon her heart to attili its tliroobags, sl:e breathed a prayer to One whom th«* dttrknem of«arin never hides. Witnin oreasei' courage she made her way. NiiilneDly her eye* lighted up. ili tbe ilutmnf, < u losed <»u al! sides l»y trees, whose liare brauehes could not wholly conceal it, sto-.td asmtli but, seemingly deserted by every living thing. A< tbe young 'girl approached it her face lighten up with hoiktand aq> ftcipetion, St>t« carefully pushed open the rickety door and entered. A faint voice from a low cotvh was the only *»tn that it wa* inhabited. "raster, t«isi«r!" "Yta, «Jear brother, I have come!" and putting down her tucket she hur ried to hia*ideand drew the tired head upon ber arm, the bright ffaxtn hair nonclinu wuh the rich jewels upon her brea>t. Her cloak falling back rev»>a! ed a picture of rare loveliness. A ma dounadike face, with eyen that mirror ed forth every thought; a mouth ex preswve of Arm purpose, a dimpled chiu, and low, ar -be<l forehead, cro»n ed with hair that rivalled in beauty spuu gold. As she drew his pale faee toward ber aud with her soft hand auLoothed back the tangled raas«»>s of hair that lay upou his damp forehead, she whispered: "Not a word, dear Frank, until I give you toiue nourishment." She arose, aud, gently laying his head back upon tbe pillow, she spread before him the d* licacita which ahe hid brought with her. From a small ttask tbeturneo some wine. This he eagerly diauk, and it aeeuud to revive him. Ilia eyes were not upon the tempting f-od, but followed the lovely vision a» ahe Uitted before him. Inatnmbliug voice lie said: "Oh, it>, why doyo.r mock my surrouud ii xowith eucb elegance of dress?-' In a moment ahe was by his si<le. 4Tr»ci«>u* brother, some flourishinent first, and then I will explain.'' (ivy. lt>g the loving command, ho seemed re freshed. Keating his head upon her arm be involuntarily toyed with the glittering circlet that rested like ao many bright stars upon ber snowy bottom. "Now, dear brother, let me explain. An entertainment is given to night, at home, to celebrate your slater's betrothal, and flare has consented to fill n<y placf by your brother's side u:i til I return." in » vuice hi bi;u'i_v u«? iticu uiil . "E<lith, say no more; I cannot hear it," ami large of perspiration stood ont iij on bis brow, "He has robbed me of my name. my friends, my home, aud now the hearties* villaiu would tike from me that which I bold <le*rvr than all- -n»y love, my flare. (> Elith, you t**ll me that God r»igns. Tney wny dm* be permit tbis cruel wrou^? Everything has been taken from me— eveu my father's blessing." Every per tlon of life* >ligbt frame was trembling with excitement. Recovering himself a little he stretched bis emaciated arius towanl the beautiful girl, who alone waa left to comfort him. "Pardon, »U W. What did I t»ay? Nothing left? Yee, I have a sister's love still. Here on my lonely cot, in the dark watches iff tlie night, you have hovered o'er me. When a father's curse still run* in uiy ears, your sweet voice seemed t » soothe me." She covered hi9 wan face with kit**-*, n-inwlMi with her tear*. "Brother. I came to-nght to give you hope. We are on lbs track of the guilty D*rtv. Yotir innocence will yet be tMUblia'i*! Clare is true to you. She loves you. Frank, and loathes your brother. H« will do all he cau to win her, but his efforts will prove vain." A gleam of j >v lighted lip his face ai lb«-e worti?, followed by an expr<*ssio:t of doubt and pain. "Ah, Edith, he is so treacbor>>us. lln whole life is a tissue of reckiw»*uess folly at d madness. To wh>«t dt?p;h will be not stoop to can-v out bU v'l fsitu lis plaus. And Care kn»*sn<>t that I live." With the»e word* h Mii.k buck. Edith soothed him, an I then said: "Frank, I mu-<t leave you dow." She arose, pr^^^ed a loving kl* upou his forehead and wis g.»ne. Out alone in tbe darkness, she thread ed her wav with difficulty through the tnnghd hr«no»>«w. white every gmi of w n Ml at »eut t^e d*ad I- aves w.urlb g aroui>«1 r H».«l her with fe^r, the n>oaning of the wind among the p ne* v und ng like the shrieking of so in iay d« moo* on her track, anl it was with a'eellngof relief that she acain ftmnd l »i>»lfon tbe highway. The ra-rry jingle of bells warned her to stop aside A tlt-lgb dart ed pa.-t wiih its happy p0t<y, all unmind'ul of Uie p<v>r pedes. Wan wearily making her way alone and little dreaming it was the lovdy 3 oung hostess of the elegant man i n OB the bilL now all a blase with light, to which they were hastening. Avoid ing the broad aveuue, where hundreds of lights were twinkling and dickering at every motion, throwing out their glad welcome to the uamerous gue»Ls hourly arriving, and reilectiug their brightness upon the clear, crisp snow, uulil every jewel known, from the great Kohinoor to the modeat pearl, was studding the earth with daazling beauty, Edith paused intothehou.se unobserved. Out upon the clear air burst the strain* of in lisle. Obsequious footmen are everywhere atteuuiog to and anticipate ing the wants of fresh arrivals. A9 we enter the broad parlors appear to our imagination like some da/zliug oictuie from the Arabian Nights. All thai wraith art and refinement can sugijest b> here found in rich proftisiou. Near the entrance stands the host of the evtDing—a tall, handsome man, with hair and eyes of raven blackness. A sud.'e 01 welcome hovers about the scornful lip?. By his side stands a fair >« uug itirl, whooe extreme loveliness evtu the gathering crowd of beauty ciuld not dim. Her drees of whit* mull f* 11 m soft folds about the youth, ful figure and gave to it an air of sweet simplicity. A bunch of white violets in her hair, another on her breast, com pleted the lovely picture. Edith found her way to her room, a d throwing aside her heavy cloak fell ti^on her knees benide her couch aud prayed for the dear young brother out in the c<>ld and solitude of the forest, through tbe machination* of one who should have sheltered and protected bim. The door is geutly opened, and two seft white arms encircled her neck, while a sweet voice whimpered: "Edith, Edith, tell me quickly, does he live?" "Yee, dear Hare, he live*, and, Uod helping us, be shall yet be restored to us. Have courage, Clare, a little lon ger and all will be well." TLey descended to the parlors. As tliey entered the brilliautly lighted rooms Edith was greeted by Harold with a frown. Mhe passed him without a word, and was soon joined by rnaniy lookiug figure, who had anxiously awaited her coming. He, Edith's be frothed, was one of nature's noblemen. They [«a.sstd into the recess of a lofty window artistically draped with costly !»»* aud luxurient vines of starry cle matis, forming a charming retreat for the lovers'. Here they were soon joiued L»y Clare, her sweet l'aee all a^low with tight aud hope. Not long were the mo allowed to remain uudisturbed, however, before Harold had sought them out, and bowing low before Clsre, ottered his arm. With evident reluc ranee the youog girl accepted it. Toe nstHss black eyt* flashed forth defi ance as, with a sense of right, lie strode across the room with the lovely orea lure by his side. Her long darR las'iew rt^t'slugon a cheek whose whiteness ««*» only rivalled by the blossoms tr«*m oliug in her hair. Ileaehing the library, now quiet and deserted by the giddy tl long, he suddenly stopp d before her. • Ci;«re, what am I to tniuk? Absent* iu<» \ours If iroiu my side to hide avay in Mtiue shadowy retreat with that moody sifter of mine. Clare, y«»u must li->tiu to me while 1 teil you of this ali alworbing love which I have for you—a love that will make me either the hap piest of men or darken and damu my whole future. ('an you not return this love that is ottered you?'' ritix-u uer e_>e« lu mi u-*-T-, i'ui I heir expression had changed from a o<>k ot soft compliance to one of fixed I determination. Lightly placing her I little baud upou iiis arm, she .said: "Harold, 1 will answer your question i>y asking another. Are you ready to »->ti>re your brother to his former p> i!i<>n iu this household?'' Had a tbuudert>olt desceuded up'iu his head his surprise could u.>t li*ve liteo greater. His countenance wore the hue of death landing a look of almost piteous entreaty upon tlieyoung yirl. he stammered forth: "My brother, d-iea he live?'' Uriso ug her sieuder wrist, in scarcely audi ble tones, he said: Vlare, iu heaven's name, do you know what you ask?'' "1 do," she said firmly, and with heaven's help, I will be answered." Standing there in her youthful loveli i tss, like an angel of mercy defeating '1 e right, she presented a picture worthy a better pen than this. Ju-t at this moment the velvet cur taina wire swept aside and a merry group ol girls t ame daucing toward iiiem, uttering their protests against such exclusiveness. With a quirk s gh of relief he ottered his arm to his fair eon>paniou—short r«8f>ite for him, hut that hour was agony tor her. Hor tuind was a wild chaos of conflicting emotion. As they passed dowu the broad caloon admiriug eyes followed their every movement, while flattering comments were heard on aU sides. Aud such is life. How often hive we stood in mute admiration, gazing out upon the broad fields of uewly falieu snow and exclaimed: "How pure, how lovely," forgetting in our < nthusia>m and delight the thousaud unsightly aud repulsive objwto hidden Uututh, which all too soon will he re vta'nl in their naked deformity. The light flashed brilliantly, lovely forms < t f time tosweetest music, and the air wi:s ladeu With rich perfume of rare > \« lies. Why in this K leu should we ltKjk for the deadly serpeut? Alas, he »] prtNifbee, tilling the air with his ;h. m)uous breath, aud is already coiling f r the deadly spriug. Two years oefore this elesant home w as the abode of rare happiness. J udge It, having amassed a large fortuue, t.sd retired from theperplexitien of busi wsh to spend the remainder of his days in fieace and quietness. His family consisted of two sons, one dau^nter. uu uir iTautiiui virtic, « ii\j uuu ifccu ndopted by the Judge when but six stars of age. Her parents, old and M.lued friends of Judge K.'a, were lost nt se*. The youngest sou, Fran*. a bright-haired, bright-eyed boy, b.*ariu^ the impress of truth and honesty, wa> tbe favorite of all iu this happy tion-e hold. Edith we need noi d-scribe axsin, as our readers have alrea ly had a glimpse of her lovely character The elder brother, Harold, a dark-nuired, impulsive fellow, had for the p.t't year l»etn 1 raveling iu Kurope. Ne^vs had reached them that the absent oue was on his way home, but it did not say heavily in debt ami briugiug w th him the results of a dissipated lif • while abroad. This - lyv«-ly home, unlike many of wealth, was the par>dise of l**uie, honor aud love; but thsptace wa-soou to give way to disturbiug in Iluenct-s of a reckless career. H»r>ll^ bad the eldest son returned before ti * frtqueut deuiauds for money bee am notorious, and his geuerous father re fused longer to meet them, unless re formation was the re>ult of a payment of all his iudetUeduess. This w<« promised aud confidence a?aiu restored. Hut under the cover of darkness Haroiu visited his old haunts. Money wa netded. Money he must have. Oue (lay. urged to the step by a feeliug o: desperation, he confided to a boon com (•anion his plan aud asked him to aid le agre**! to do the deed and share th spoils. A false key, au open window, and oue morning the father awoke to find several Uiousaud dollars in bonds missing. An alarm was given. None neeir.ew more anxious to Hud the guilty party than Harold. The laughiug eyed Frank teemed less concerned than auy one else. Trouble sits lightly when tke conscience is clear. Tiie search \* nit «>n. unsuce«>s«.fid, of course. Hint> « ere thrown out by Harold as to ha Joung br<»ther's indifference. Tb • udge spurutd these insinuations, b it oue inoruing, as Frank atood talking to i is father, he carelessly pulled »r»>iu hs pocket his handkerchief. From its fo'ds I'ropptd a pn-ce of paper, i'o his h"rior an i amazement be ( >viud it (•> be one of the missing bonds. With urief and dispair upon his t-oimtenance. he turned an imploring ga*e upon the father, who witn bowed he.id had tnrnetW from his favorite son. "My Ofldf' came fron the p<*>r buy'a hjw. "You cannot believe me gu liy. 1 know nothing of this note—how it came » »rr. O father, you cannot i>e'5ove that 1 *ould h»ve wiooged you bo." • Svs. sir,1' bunw io tbu d^r t^6* fr m lip* that had never heforr brea'.htd aa&nt but love aud kinduess. "1 oo iitive you to be the guilty party. Oo from my preaenoe, aud if you have stained your soul with this dreadful crime may the curve of aa outraged father rest upon you and yours!'' With the father's voice still ringing in hiit earn he turned hi* back upoa all the cherished scenes of his happy boy hood—no longer the bright, iaughiug youth, but the stern and suffering man, going forth a wanderer upou the face of the earth. As he stood revolving in his mind the great change whioh a few short hours had wrought in his life soft arm* were thrown about his neck. Turning quick* ly he discovered his little sifter. Stif ling sobs shook the delicate frame of Edith as she clung in all her anguish to the grief stricken Frank. -O, brothe), had our blessed mother t>ut lived she would have believed in you as I do. Believe me, my faith is stroug. Yes, dear Frank, your iunocence will yet be established and the guilty will suffer." He seemed lnspirwl with new hope. Suddenly taking both hands, he whispered: "What of Clare? Will you tell her all? I cannot trust myself to see her. It would uuman me, aud I need all my courage." A few hurried words of consultation; a promise to write if sick or needing help; a loving embrace, and he passed down the broad avenue whlcu had been the scene of so much happiness. We will not follow the petted ohiid offortune through the hardships, disappoint ment*, failures and discouragements that on every hand met the efforts of the unexperienced youth until health, hope and courage gave way. Then, and not till then, did a note reach the anxious sister. It read: "Sick. Un able longer to endure the struggle. Frb«k." That night, on wings of love, ► he flew to hi* side# There ou a low pallet, in,the home of a poor widow, lay the dear brother; but how changed The golden hair lav matted upou hie pale forehead. T. • 1 tughiug blue eyes were sunken arm expressionless. As Edith approached th-pallet a look of recogti'tiou lighted up his wau face. The thin arms were stretched out to wards her, and again his head was pillowed upon the faithful breast. Sobs convulsed her; she dare not trust her self to speak. The woman present touched b» r on her shoulder. "See mademoiselle," she said, "h«i has f.inted." Quickly restoratives were used, and soon the blue eyes opened and a few whispered words, from the sister seemed to animate him with uew life aud hope. Pressing a kiss upon the p.de face; giving a few words of in struction to the woman and she was gt ne. In a few hours Edith returned and with her two faithful servants, lenderlv the brother was laid upon t!se comfortable eot aud enveloped in blauk ets. With many substantial tokens of gratitude to the poor woman who had so kindly sheltered him, they passed out into the gathering darkness with their precious burden and quickly ma le their I way to the deserted hut in the forest. Hfre (hey n a Je him as coraf >r a > e as p<issiMe with what they could convey from the house. Here Edith came a.-< frequently as she could without aroui ing suspicion, to nurse him back to dfe while she by every means in herpowei * ught for evidence to convict the guiltv and e ear the innocent. She hud in her josaession a note delivered to her the day of the party. It read thus: "Meet me at the alcove window ts> niiht at 10. Deliverance is at hand." We 'eft Kdith seated in the western a'cove. Her heart was beating pa'uFul ly JShe trembling consulted her watch Nearly 10. Her temples throbbed with the painful suspense. Eagerly she tried to penetrate the darkness. A light tap caused her to start. Locking around she encountered close to the pane a pair of eyes that causinl her to shudder. Sne retieated through a aide door and cunie face to face with a man, wiio, without a word, pushed a crumpVd pa p; r iuto her hand and disappeared, she was soon in her room, her eyes with ei^er impatience scanning each word of tl e note: "I was your broather Harold's ao r< mplifH* in the robbery of the bond--. I plac d th« stolen note in your younger b urner's pocket, by Haroid s direction to itiveil suspicion fro.n himself. I w ill prove what I say to-morrow night ii tii'- pres»nee of y >ur father, and theu thr. wing myself u>>on his mercy. Wait H-f result.'' With streaming eyes the young girl thanked (»<;d tor this great deliverance. 1 lathing her eyes that no oue might de teci her grief, she was soon mingliug in the* merry throng, dinpening with sweet smiles and «piiet happiness the hospitalities of the evening, but, with a deep sigh of relief Kdith bade adieu to ti e last guest, and soon the brilliant scene was shrouded in darkue-ss. The morning sunlight stole softly into (he apartment occupied by the two young girls. Kdith was awakened by a loug-drawn sigh from her companion. Her first impulse was to tell Clare all; but what if this should be false? She would wait until sure that she had not b «n deceived. Springing up, Kdilii was >ooa diessed and <-u her way to the library. She entered to find the »Je>r father sitting with bowed head. Putting her arms around his neck she seated herself upou his knee as stie w u to do in happier days. He look ed up in surprise. "l ather, listen to nie. I have a singu lar tale to relate,"►and she told him all rlo details of the previous night, aud howed h.m the note. .springing to his feet, the c Id Judge exc.aiuied: "(), uiy boy! my boy! Where are you uow? A wanderer upon the face of the earth. A fathe's t'jrse rest'iig upon you. Ah! the respite came to late, too late. Hod forgive rue," broke from his lips as he sank back iuto his chair. Suddenly h.'s prang up, and with Hashing eyes aud cl?ncu-d li->ts he demanded to kuow where tue guilty one was. "Hriug him to IU9 at once and let the curse fall where it belongs." Kdith feared for her father's reason as lie madly paced the room. Stie betgtd him to becalm, else their plan* might be frustrated. With t.-ars stream iug from his eyes he laid his trembling h 'lids upon her head aud niteously said: 1 KUitn, c!i:iu, uo you k io .v wuere my boy is? Ob, that he might be re stored to me, the sou whom I have ui-vrr ceastd to love." l*"dith placed hun in hU eaay chair, f< r he seemed low n very child m her 'amis, aud tenderly wniaperod: "Hav. faith, dear faihe:-; ;ill will be riijht." t'r«8sing a k;as upon his Jcri hea l she left liiui answer tue summons to the oreak fust room. Ordering breakfast to be sent to the library, she sealed herself at the table ->he encountered the eyes of Harold lixed suspiciously up>u ner, while a (.own a.-, black as night gathered upou tiis brow. "Kdith whero is (.'lars* this u urniug?" while a cyuic&l smile play ed around his mouth. "Not left ber r"on» >tt? Well, sweet sister, tell her, p ease," the horse#* will be ut the door promptly at ten. IShe could not trusi iierMrif to speak, but bowing, left the riH<m. Kiilth deli vered her brother's message. Fur a moment thesutlenug Ciare stood ir/tsclute. A shudder ran through her frame. Mastering her emotion, she turned to Klith: "I will yield to his rtquest this time, but, KJith, mver m' •?., not even for you." She drtsB d l»»r the ride. Slowly di» trt i.uiijg Uie steps »he came suJdeny uj ou her escort. Sh*forc-*i herself to answer b"s morning salutation, and pa^ed him as though drea ling contact »» h cfce the s > abhorred. Keachi.ig he jede of her r utl pony, Clare .ressed him, as t'l »ugh a-ckin» pro tection from ev n the dumb xnnd at her side. Springing iuto her seat, the horse- sped away like the winds. Sud d< cly he seized her bridle and they conie to a full stop. . "Olsre," be said, "what mean9 this?" "It means," she said, with flishiuK eye* and tr ~mhlin<? lips; "it in-ans I csnnot rid • by yonr side. It means that I bare you, I >ibhnr yon It means t.hat a t* rrib'e suspicion ha - taken p^ses *i<>n of me. irs, y.u unve br 'It; n your father's besrt, have desolated a ore • happy home ard sent an innoceut * oung brother out into the cold w irld, a stain upon his fair name. May Go 1 fotglveyoa; I cannot" And with a look be never forgot stie stuck her poi y and dashed madly along tj <r«id home." Harold felt that he bad been betrayed, I but by whom? Fear took possession of him. Reaching home and throwing the reins to a groom Clare sprang to th* step?, not stopping unt 1 she uad ga oed her 100m. "Thank tjhwl!" »ii« ex claimed, "the hateia] mask la re mo red. I osn show him that I des; Is niin." Edith had meanwhile received a note reading thus: "Have Harold at home to-night at six o'clock. I will ba oa Land." How slowly the hours rolled by to that anxious girl. Harold was hurriedly pacing hi* ro< m, little dreamiuk what was in store for him. As the clock struck six be entered tne library in answer to his father's summons. Hardly had he reached the centre of the r.xiiu waen he was confronted by bin partner in crime. Had tbe dead stood before him he could not have evinced more abject fear. Hi* faced va< livid, his ban s clenched. Large beads of perspiratiou s:ood out uf'ou his forbead. His eyes shot forth the* ol hate aud taking o...- at p for ward, he hissed between his teeth: "Wretch!" The muu, in a tone 61 fierce agony, replied: "Yes, wretch in deed, but wretch though I am I could not longer carry about the knowledge that the innocent was suffering for the guilty. Tbe stolen notes I placed in ,\ our brother's pocket by your direc tun." 4,Iiiar!" issued from tbe lips of the guilty Harold. "You instructed me where to Had the bouds. You left the window o^n, uLd 1 shared spoils. I now throw my -elf upon your father's mercy. If by this I can restore tbe innocent boy to his home, and relieve my oonscieuce oi this terrible burden, I am Couteut." These words had hardly pa**»d his lips before the concentrated rage of Harold broke forlh. Like a mailman be sprang forward and ciutcned tbe in former by the throat. A deadly strug gle seemed imminent. Shriek after shriek lroru Edith brought tue butler on tbe sceue, and by almost superhu huuian strength they were separated. Tbe father, who had stood horror striken, now approached his excite i son, and, laying his haud upon tue arm of Harold, said: "Oh, my 6on, evea after this cruel wrong 1 will not curse you, as I did yoar innocent brother. No; with lii d's help you may yet become a bet ter mar. This bittrr experience may deter y«»u from wrong-doing in the fu tore. .May ileaveu forgiveyou as freely Ha 1 do." Then (urning to the stranger, who steed with bowed head, the Jud^e I banked bim for helping to right tue wronged. With a cry of agony, Har old Hod from the room, followed bv his companion in misery. The old Jnd»je stidi" into his chair. With tears stream in;; from his eyes he said: "Oh.KJith, my child, you are all I bave left!" ' No, no, father; believe me, Frank wi 1 yet be restored to you. 'fruit me. V< u shall soon see him," and hurridl> the dtvoted sister summoned the ser vants in possession of tier secret. !y i.er orders were obeyod aud sooa al. was in readiness. Quietly they Jolt the tiouso anu ao>u «*#ched the hut. With glad impatieuc ►be buried to the side of her brother I'Ut her ears were greeted only with in • oLerent raving-.

The iticou threw its ci>ld rays upou the -Hi fit procession. As they approached uH-entrauce a white-rohed figure stoo l ,u.m within the door. Keeling unusual y oppressed and re.*tl°ss ('Jure had gone n.-earth of KdLith. She had reached Mic door just iu time to sec fchissingtilar pniotesion enter the grounds. Wtiat oid (hat mean? Some object covered with white. A terror seized her, she -hrieked. "He is dead .'"and fell un conscious at their fart. Servants bur i ltd to the scene. The unconsciou gtrl was removed to her room, but her -hi ieks bad brought the Judge to the door just as they entered with thei. pr» emus burden.

From now ■□til it is to cold bees cea (to fly, it u well to keep watch of colonies, and more particularly of the weaker oue*, to prevent robbing, and see at once to any unusual commotion about any particu lar Live. Quite an excitement Is common on warm days at any time from 12 m. un til 3 l'.- M., at this season. But such exhibitions are simply the young bees exercising, and are easily distinguished from robbing by any one familiar or watchful of their bees. Robbers after getting a start oome early and stay late. The usual remedy given in cases of robbing, is to close the hive entirely bo no bete can go in or out; or to close the entrance, so that but one bee can paaa in or out at a time. But the better way to beat of! robbers I have found is to close the hive entirely and remove it to a dark, cool, still place, for three or four day.-., and wbeu it is replaced on the stand contract the entrance so that btil one bee can squeeze in and out at once, and it will cure the trouble. When tne hive is closed and left in it* place it if usually a long contest b -fore the avail ing parues give it up, and if a small en trance is left the persistent thieves hold on still longer. When a swarm heve been assailed and the hive removed, it is best to nearly close the entrance of all thw other colonies near, in order to dis courage any attack on others. Opening hives or removing honey, esptcially if comb tias to be broken so 'here is no flow of honey, is apt to in duce robbing whenever pasturage is caice. All weak or queeuless colonies are in danger from robbers, but strong ones are very seldom molested by them. Any changing or manipulating of comb at this season should be done t - ward night, ho that the bees will have everything fixed up the coming day. 11 done in the morning or middle of the day, or at any time when bees are aro; ud it gives them an opportunity to lwg:n their depredati&us, «nd when flier they get a tasle they are apt to be troublesome. IS.-fore winter the weak swarm* should be united—savins: the m;»st vuluible queen when you have a ch nee. l\v» -ything being equal, the younger otits should be kept. I' 'roie uniting two or more colonies in (:ie, smoke them *11 well at first, and ufttr having united them, it is well to -pr . kle them with water scented wiln I ep. • rmii.t, m all will have the same Mi.e'l, and thus no bee will r-e >gnizi> a I t-tru'-ger, and therefore no fighting or Uiil iig each other. CHESTNUTS AND WALNUTS. The growing of chest nuts ami walnuts upon a lariu we regard as a crop of cou s:d( ruble importance, and should form a biuich of cwry farm where the? lutui is lo spare, ami where, as is the case upon almost every one ot any size, there especially iM laud of a rough nature where the general crops of the farm eau cot be raised with any profit, but which sit tha name tiiue is very well adapted to tiie walnut ami elnstuut. The late Dr. Kiitlaud, of Ohio, u pomologist of a urea; di al of note, raised in his garden fioi»! the need the French, Itaiiau and Spanish chestnuts, which, when large enough, he transplanted, and when ten years old commeuctd to bear. Ho re garded the product as paying very well, and even added to the chestnuts the sheilbark hickory nut. He stated that tlieifc chestnuts were about ot e-qttal size and quality, liut in this we do not ugreo with him, inasmuch as we con side r the French chestnut to bef>up<rior to the Italian and Spanish, but none of them equal to our native chestnuts, though two or three times larger, liut Dr. Kirtland said nothing about the cultivation of the English walnut,which c.tu be easily grown in this latitude. 1 pe n almost every fa:m there are some outof-the-way portions of it which are woithlcss for the usual farming pur poses, which would be very suitable for growiug the Euglish walnut. In fact, walnuts will grow on almost any land, however rough and stony. Tne tree trows readily, atlords tine shade, will I*gin to yield regular crops of fruit in about ten years, which will increase steadily us the tree imTeases in size. I in iruit is much sought after in its yre< n state for p'oking: and in its ripe -'at is really better than those im ported. its quality nearly every one is fond of, and the p'i'e :t commands at the fruiterers will doubly repay the ttot.ble aud expense attending the gathering and marketing We do ufit know enough of the shell lwrk to recommend its cultivation, ex cept perhaps in places where the land is n« t required for 01 adapted to the general crops of the farm. The tree do mauds rich land, and then it will grow only slowly ami require from twelve !<> frteen years before it would 3*iel 1 a crop, and that is by no means a regular "lie. The tree should be grown from the seed, and he raised where it is in t< tided to remain, as it is difficult to giow when transplanted. Even if not intended as crop? for marketing, there ought to be a tree or two of each Kind planted fortiome usf», as we contend that whatever is the right thing to raise upon the farm for others to consume the fatuily has a: hast equal claims to u share of it; an 1 autosome things it should be provided with choice article exclusively for do mestic consumption.
