Practical Bee Man Tell* the His-.
Tory and Use of the
Intelligently Conducted Bee Culture
It Profitable Industry in
Certain Localities.
It is only within tlie recent years
that the general public has taken any
Interest in the real valut* of many pro
ducts used as food by humanity.
Keally, a great deal more atteution
has been paid to the profitable, feeding
of dairy cows. hens. etc.. than to the
food that human beings have been
■ it is but recently that widespread
campaigns have been carried on In
various cities of the United States,
and especially among school children,
in the Interest of a larger and more
Keneral consumption of so common a
food article as milk. Why. most of us
thought that milk was the best food in
all the world, but we did not really
know it. until Prof. B. V. McCollum
an<\ a few other noted food specialists
gave us the results of their scientific
Honey Second to Milk.
Well a close second to milk as a
health-Riving and health-continuing
rood is honey. In reality, honey is an
ideal food. It is Nature's own sweet,
first distilled in the nectaries of the
blossoms, then gathered by the busy
little honey-bees, stored in their hive
comb-cells, evaporated to almost wax
like consistency, and then sealed
over; thus forming the beautiful and
tempting squares of delicious comb
lioney which we find in the retail gro
ceries in almost every well-regulated
But most of the honey In the mar
kets is In the form of what is called
"extracted" lioney. This is first com
pleted by the bees in combs about
9xlß inches in size. These combs are
built and held in the hive in light
wooden frames. When completed by
the bees, they ar«; removed, taken to
an "extracting" room In a house or
other building, where the thin wax
cappiußS on both sides of the comb
are shaved off with a sharp knife, and
the uncapped combs set in wire comb
baskets that revolve very rapidly by
gpeciul metal gearings within a large
tiu or galvanized iron can; and the
honey is thus thrown out by centrif
ugal force.
After the (tombs are entirely free of
the honey, they are replaced in the
hives, where they are refilled, and the
later operation of "extracting" the
honey is repeated—that is, provided
the flowers continue to yield nectar
for the bees to gather and store in
I started out to tell something about
the great ralue of honey as a food, but
thought the process of producing
combless or "extracted" honey might
be of interest to the uninitiated. So
now for the food value of honey:
Among the well-known dietarians,
Dr. Bruce Belden, has this to say in
the Atlanta Georgian:
Most Valuable of Food*.
"Honey is one of the most valuable
of our foods, and it has been recogniz
ed as such from the earliest days. It
is suggested by an eminent food
authority, that we use it more in
place of our ordinary sugar as a more
suitable food product from the point
of view of digestibility. Another
scientist has showu that honey con
tains so many of the elements need
ed in our diet that the substitution of
honey for sugar might almost be con
sidered an urgent step.
"The sugars which make up honey
do not have to undergo chemical
changes in the alimentary canal be
fore absorption; and honey might,
therefore, be called an ideal food.
Besides this, the calories, or energy
producing units it contain*, are great
er In number than those of meat and
«*gg». which are themselves concen
trated sources of 'fuel' for the body.
"By the analysis of a Swiss scien
tist. Prof. Bunge, honey is shown to
have, besides formic acid, two other
important ingredients not contained
In sugar. These are the valuable min
erals —lime, which occurs in honey in
a quantity of 6.7 per cent; and iron. In
a quantity of 1.20 per cent. These
xubstances are taken out of many of
our foods by refining, and It would be
well to make us this serious deficiency
by using more honey, or by substi
tuting honey for the less valuable
cane sugar."
Growing children are often fed on
various corn syrups and other pro
ducts of inferior food value, when, if
parent* only knew it, they would be
glad to supply honey among other
health and bodily vigor producing
food*; and often at less cost than the
less nourishing things that are sup
I trust what I hare here given will
only serve to whet the breeder's ap
petite for more information on thin
very important subject, and lead him
or her to follow the wise Biblical In
junction, namely, "to prove all things,"
and "hold fast to that which Is good"
—like honey, milk, etc.

Feminine ankles apparently have
gone into mourning. The blight red,

used to brighten the London streets
have disappeared.
Stroll along Bond street or Regent
street any afternoon and for every
gay pair of ankles you see you will
count at least four black ones.
The disappearance of the bright col
ors is credited to the sudden craze for
black that is sweeping through the
dress world, a craze that is largely
ascribed to stocks of black material
accumulated by the great Paris houses
for purposes of mourning during the
war and which the houses are now
attempting to unload.

Fertilizer demonstrations conducted
during the past year, indicate that
phosphorus is one of the limiting fac
tors affecting an increase in crop
production in many of the counties
of the state. Out of sixty-eight fertil

Leonard Hegnauer, extension soil spe
cialist of the state college, sixty-five

per cent where superphosphate was
These demonstrations were conduct
ed in cooperation with the county
agents and local farmers in the coun
ties of King, Grays Harbor, Kittitas,
Beuton, Spokane, Whatcom, Cowlitz,
San Juan, Clallam, Thurston, Snohom
isli and Wahkiakum.
The fertilizer was tried out on sandy
loam, clay bottom, shot clay upland,
peaty soils and gravelly uplands.
Three plots were run to show the dif
ferent treatment. One with barnyard
manure, another with barnyard ma
nure and superphosphate and another
with just superphosphate alone. Out
of the twenty-eight plots where super
phosphate was applied in combination
with the manure, only one failed to
give good results. The results were
more uniform than in the case of the
superphosphate alone and general ay-
erage increases were higher.

"The outstanding fact in these
tests," says Mr. Hegnauer, "is the uni
formly good results obtained from the
use of phosphorus. It is especially
to be noted that an addition of a
small amount of superphosphate to
the manure produced on the farm
greatly increases the value of the ma
nure and the manure in turn helps
the phosphate."
For 160-acre farms of all-arable land
a plan of live-stock production has
been recommended by the United
States department of agriculture
which includes 80 ewes (1 ewe to 2
acres) along with 22 breeding cows
and 12 brood sows. Arable land of
the best class, when used exclusively
for sheep, can be made to support
from 5 to 8 ewes (with their lambs un
til marketed) per acre. On pastures
suitable, for either cattle or sheep five
ewes may be considered the equiva
lent of one cow or steer.
