BEES AND 1ONEY PLAN-is.-I had
two hundred colonies of hybrid bees
last autunin, and I have not lost more
tman six. Tho winter having been
unusually cool, bees have not been' out
as much as usual am.1 consequently los
ses have beon less. Outl' boo season
commences in February and continues
till near December, giving us a long
working season, when we take care to
keep a succession of flowers for pastur
age. In September we usually have
the greatest drought of the season and
nearly all our wild flowers are dried up.
During this dry season if nothing is
prepare' by citivation for pasturage,
the bees get scarcely enough to subsist
ipon. Our lucerne meadows give great
help, but generally as soon as the plants
get well iI blossoin, the mower spoils
all the prospects of honey from that
source. lin all uiy experience with
boos, I find Mignonetto the most valua
ble for bee pasturage. This I announ
ced through the be Journals moveral
years ago, and continued experience
has streigthened thatconclusion. That
plinit blooms early and continues to
blossom till iipped by frost. I have
not a shade of doubt but that a well
cultivated nero of this plant would give
abundant employnment for 500 colonIes.
Sweet clover comies next to AlIguonettee
iII value for bees. There is little doubt
but that this p.ant will yIeld honey
laster than Mignonetto, but being a
perennial, it costs double what the oth
er does that blossoms annually and is
self-sceding after having onco been
stareMd. There is still another very
voluable plant, fo bees, knownt as the
"Americln bee plant" that was intro
duced into the Cast in 1858. It grows
in sand, 1s a wonderful bloomer and
honey-producer, but the honey from it

)ltme hIs been alt a loss to know what to
lo Lo raise a few cabbages. Some have
Lried ono thig and some have tried
111o1her, and mostly to no purpose.
Last, year I set about three hundred and
thirty-yIve plants, and picked oft' the
wor .s by hand as they came, for about
two weeks wvhich took some two hours
each day. Th'lis seemed to be too much
work, and( als I have a wvell of' soft water
near by, I took a ilve-pall kettle, set it
near the well, put mto( It a Inlt of soft
soap1 and1( the 51ame1 ofrsalt, aind thenl fill
mtd it usp with wvater. I let this standl
till tihe waiter was watrmed by thle sun1
and1( then after stirring~ it up well, i
took miy water-pot and applied it alt thme
rate of ab~out a gallon to forty heads,
puittig It in the' center. I did this
every dlay ani the result was I had the
nlicest and hardest catbbages thalt were
ever raised. I had 110 troubllle to got

SOMEt yeors ago I was detained in re

reqmiring a detour of' seine twenty

buggy anld driver. Bunt tile hlorse
