Iloston livening Transcript: Wo havo and wonderful weather hero for Bomo weeks past cold nt tlmos, but no frost for scvornl weeks, and In conscquonco jvorythlng Is In full leaf and bloom. Wo soldom hnvo euch a spring. The flowers nrn In tho nrontcst profusion und Inflnlto variety tho hills and val leys nro dressed In n cont of many colors. Tho great whlto henda of the Spanish dnggors look llko ghosts ns Uioy stand around on tho hillsides. At a dlstnnca- tho loaves of tho plant tiro vlslblo among tho general green, nnd tho flowor atnik stands tnll and stately with its load ot creamy bolls, tho wholo cluster being often four feet from the top buds to tho lower flowers, and a foot and a half In diameter. Thoro lei another shrub with purple flowora that Is vory mtioh In ovldoneo Just now; somo of tho bushos aro cov ercd bo closely with blossoms ns to leave only llttlo places through which tho crisp green loaves show. Tho flow ors aro In clusters flvo or six inohos long, drooping from tho ond ot oach twig, and ono must eeo thorn to havo tn Idea of tholr gorgeous beauty. Thoro ire whale hlllsldeB ot thorn, too, piled jno tier nbovo nnothor. Still another ihrob with a llowcr tho color of peneb blossom Is Uio most beautiful of all l'hcro are sovornl largo places on tho rango whero cedar brakes have been burned, nnd thoy nro almost entirely covered with those bushes, and In look Ing over tho tops of thorn on a love) It sccma llko a pink wall, with tho. old black cedar trunks and burnt pines looming over them In gaunt derision. Tho warm weather brings tho bees out in full forco, and I am moro than ever fascinated with tho llttlo Insects. I never ece one sipping rft n flower or flying along In tho air but ho Bays: "O. no, you can't find my house; others you may find, but mlno. novor." And forthwith I tnko up the chnllengo and never cease hunting until I 'find It. Though two or thrco years may pass I icldom fall to do so eventually, and you havo no Idea what fasolnatlon (hero Is In It nftor one has experience I can usually, after seolng several bees go home an I otter getting the course laid off, run them homo in a couple of hours, unless they go more than two miles. It seems ridiculous to any ono -ho does not know their ways to tnako lueh a claim, but It can be dono. To iny eye except a bee hunter's n bee In the air Is Invisible , I question If many people ever saw ono flying, unlaw It was In the not of alighting on u flower, but they travel through the air as peo ple travel on earth, and wonderful sowers ot sight they must have. lie ildes that, there Is no doubt In my mind that there Is an Intelligent order ing ot the whale business ot the hive, mil a means ot communloatlns of one with the others. Sometimes ( take a bt of comb with i little honey on it, and set it on the lop of a hill, or In an open place where I can seo In all directions, and leave ll tor n day or two, until the bees are working nt It strong, nnd can then run them home In a llttlo while. When T bave Idaure I stay and wait for them to come, and encourage them by burn ing a piece of comb every halt hour r so. It It is a warm, bright day In winter and tho comb Is within two allies of a swarm, they will eome be fore the first hour is out The first one, ilwaya doubling here and there, files m ever Burrowing clroules, until he Dels the exact location ot the sweet imill; he examines it from all sides, ilotriy buzzing around It. ond finally illctits. Inserts his lone, alios tonxue In a drop ot honey, suts his pump (4 work, and in a fow trfnutcs la as full as ho can fly. Slowly he rises, carefully scanning the country as ho gets higher, so that he con toll the others the exact locality of his find, probably. As he gets still higher, he feels confidence, and away ho goes. Blowly nnd carefully, but directly toward home. I generally tlmo the first bee. nnd can Judge accurately as to dlstanea by that, allowing about fifteen or twenty minutes to a mile, coin? and coming. The bee never delays u Instant, ex cept to unload nnd mnko his report, and then Is oft again. If It Is a rollablo beo his first report Is heeded and threo bs, or in rare easoa four, n'o sent at onco after him. arriving at the bait a minute after the first one comes tor the second toad. Once or twleo I havo seen tho first bee make two or three trips nlone, as If his report had not been considered truthful enough far others to bo sent to his old. It tho swarm Is at work elsewhere thoro nro sildom more than twenty sent to the new place, but II there Is no moro honey to be had thoy keep coming In regular dolacltmoilts until, to tho expl luneed eye, It Is llko a road to n populous town, nnd some are going loaded, others nro hurrying along to have a hand In that spoil and seldom getting far from Uio beaten track. As one nenrs the hlvo (tree or cave, as It may bo) tho coming and go ing becomes Incessant, somo high In the air and others closo to tho ground, but nil busy nnd eager to bo doing their share. And to think thnt to most eyes nil this Is Invlslulo! In nil tho men I havo had here probably 100 Mexi cans In the last throe winters born woodsmen ns they nro, nnd truo sons ot nntui-c, only one can seo n beo In the air; another Is learning tho oraft i llttlo with my help.

Yot flvo mlnutos afterward It contains wholo colonies ot bacteria wnshed out ot tho milk ducts, dusted off tho flanks of tho cows, blown by tho wind from tho filthy barn or stirred up from tho bottom nnd sides ot tho milk pall Itself.

Freshly eloared lands, and lands whtou hnvo not been plowed for many years, usual ly contain nn nbundnneo ot humus, but when lands havo long been cultivated In hood crops llko corn and cotton, tho t limits beeomes exhausted and must o replaced boforo they cat bo made profitable. Just how this humus shall be supplied must depend on the cir cumstances of oach plantation. When it can be had in sufficient quantity, there Is no better material for this pur pose than is stable manure, but os this ean seldom bo scoured In eufllolent- amounts, recourse must be had to other materials. Wcll-Prcparcd around.-The true rule la to bow no moro ground than oan be thoroughly prepared; but where tho soil Is not too compact, and is free from weed growth, plowing may sometimes be dispensed with and the upper orust be put In good ohnpo to receive oats by careful harrowing.

I think that a person who tries to shoot a burglar in his own honse Is foolish. It Is even mere hazardous than running ahead of teams on the street. Suppose one should tumble down. No driver has such a command over his horses that he could stop thorn soon vnough to provent nn accident. It Al ways makes mo nervous to see some smarty go dodging under the horse's nose. Now, a burglar has nine out ot ten advantages over the man being bur glarized. The burglar Is wide-awake, on tho alert for danger, has his means ot escape perfectly planned, and Is around for anything that may threaten him or cut off his escape. The man being burglarized Is usually awaktscd from a Bound sleep, If he await n it oil, and Is naturally in a dazed & Di llon. This 1b proven from tbe fast that about three-fMrths of the men thus aroused, who shoot at burglars hit nome member ot the household Instead, III two eases out ot three, of tbe re maining fourth, are themselves hit by the burglar. )n other words, about one put ot every twelve who enter a house tf siot at and rarely bit.
