Are you going to plant those trees this spring or will you put it off an other year? p Why not get busy on the streets of our town? OThey need some grad ing quite badly. There are a few low places in our streets that it would be a good idea to grade up. The Steamboat Pilot is now a member cf the Associated Press. W wish to congratulate the publishers on their progressiveness and the ex cellent support that they receive from the business men of. Steamboat. It is coming spring and is time to clean up around the home, haul out the manure which has accumulated a the stable and have a general clean ing up. Dont't wait until the con ditions become such that you can’t stand it any longer, but begin now. Jackson county is progressing, the vote at the school election shows that the people are progressive and want their children to have a good education and that they believe in having the schools of Jackson coun ty as good as the schools of any of . the surrounding counties. If Walden is to be the town that it ought to be, it must be a town where people will like to live not only because it is a place to make money but also because it is a nice place to have a home. A few shade trees planted now and taken care of will help to make it such a place. Why wait until next spring to do the planting? BUILDING UP A DAIRY HERD Fault of Dairymen in General Is Proper Application of Knowledge They Possess—Few Points. The fault of dairymen in general Is not so much the lack of knowledge as the proper application of the knowledge they possess. One thing that we ought to con sider when we ftart out to buy breed ing cattle Is the fact that the knowl edge, skill and character of the man ' we buy them of la about as important an the animals that we are buying. Can a man sow poor seed and hope to get a good crop? Will nature make any exceptions In one man's favor? These are questions which ought to Interest the man who keeps on year after year breeding his cows to some scrub bulk Too many farmers lack thh push and energy required to build up a fine herd of dairy cattle. They are poor business men. \w The cow cannot turn all of her en ergy into the production of milk and still have enough to build up her off spring rightly. To raise good, vig orous calves, we must see to It that the mother has sufficient of the right kind of food and goes dry long enough. to do the work rightly. Age to Sell Cows. The age to which a cow of the type can be profitably kept should be gauged largely by her character as a breeder. If she breeds regularly and rears good calves she should be kept to a reasonable old age. This will* militate against the price which she will bring on the block when she Is sold, but the lack will be much more than made up In the exceellent char acter of the stock which she has pro-, duced. On the other hand, when a cow of this class is not possessed of promise as a successful breeder in the first and second calves which she pro duces, she ought to be sold. Such a cow may then be put upon the mar ket, so that shs will command a good price. __ FARM AND BEES SUCCESS IN BEE MANAGEMENT Profit Not Now Measured by Increase by Swarming as Formerly— Various Methods. (By E. F. PHILLIPS, PH. D.) The excessive rearing of brood at the wrong season or Increase in the number of colonies greatly reduces the surplus honey crop by consump tion. The Ideal to which all progres sive bee keepers work, when operat ing simply for honey, is to stimulate brood rearing to prepare boes for gathering, to retartl breeding when it 1# less desirable, and to prevent sweating. Very lew succeed In en tlrely preventing swarming, but by va rious methods the situation can be largely controlled. a swarm Issues, It usually first ■attic* on h limb of a tree or bush near the apiary. It was formerly common to make a noise by boating pans or ringing bells in the belief that this ,6auses the swarm to settle. There Is no foundation for such action on the SDf the bee keeper. If the bees on a small limb that can be d. it n?ay simply be sawed off he bees carried to the hive and to on a sheet or hive cover In front of the entrance. If the limb 'Cannot be cut, the swarm can be shaken off into a box or basket on a 'pole and hived. If the bees light on the trnnk of a tree or In some Inac cessible place, they can first be at tracted away by a comb, preferably joont&lnlng unsealed brood. In these manipulations it Is not necessary to get all the bees, but If the queen is Sot with those which are put in the 'hive the bees will go into the air again and Join the cluster. 1 It la desirable early In the season, before any preparations are made for Perforated Zinc Queen Excluder. swarmihg, to go through the apiary and clip one wing of each queen so that If a swarm Issues the queen can not fly and the bees can bo easily re turned to the old stand. This should he done before the hive becomes too populous. It is perhaps best to clip queens as they are introduced, but some colonies may rear new ones without the knowledge of the owner, and a spring examination will Insure no escaping swarms. When clipping the queen’s wing. Is not practiced, swarms may be pre vented from leaving by the uso of queen traps of perforated zinc. These allow the workers to pass out, but not drones or queens, which, on leaving the entrance, pass up to an upper compartment from which they cannot return. These are also used for keep ing undesirable drones from escaping, and the drones die of starvation. Queens' sometimes die during the winter and early spring, and since there Is no brood from which the bees can replace them, the queenless colo nies are “hopelessly queenless.” Bee keepers In the north can frequently buy queens from southern breeders early In the spring, and naturally this Is better than leaving the colony with out a queen until the bees can rear one, as it Is important that there be no stoppage In brood rearing at this season.
