Spring Is th BMt Time Practical Ilint to Beginners Spring ia the best time tOestablijih an apiary, especially for a person unac quainted with the practical care of bees. Colonies in good condition secured then are more easily kept in order by the novice than if purchased in the fall. Mistakes in management may possibly be remedied before the season closes, and by the time it is necessary to pre pare for the winter the learner will have gained a certain amount of practi cal knowledge of the nature and re quirements of the bees. If the start be made late in the season, mistakes, if they occur, may result fatally before the proper remedy can be applied. This advice is given in a bulletin from the department of agriculture, authority also for the following: The beginner had better obtain bis start by purchasing one or two colonies of pure Italian or Carniolan bets in ac curately made frame hives and in first class condition. These he should get from some bee master of repute near his own place if possible, in order to avoid expressage and possible damage through long confinement or numerous transfers. The cost per colony may be $6 to $8 ; yet bees at this price will generally be found much cheaper in the end, for, though common bees in box hives may frequently be obtained at half the price or less, the cost, when finally transferred into frame hives, fit ted up with straight combs, and the common queens replaced by Italians or Garniolans, will not be less. The possession of a colony already in prime working order gives the novice a standard with which to compare all others, and often enables him to avoid costly experiments. Another plan, also commendable, is to agree with some neighboring beekeeper to deliver as many first swarms on the day tbey issue as are wanted. These will give the right start if placed as soon as received in hives with foundation starters and the frames properly spaced one and three eighths inches from center to center, it being understood that tho swarms are early and prime ones, with vigorous queens. Only those issuing from colo nies that have swarmed the year before or from such as were themselves second swarms of the previous year should bo accepted. Swarms from these will have queens not over ono year old. It is better to have queens of the cur rent year's raising, but these can only be obtained by taking the second or third swarms from a given hive, which come later and are smaller, or by sub stituting young queens for those that como with tbo swarms. The Ice Harvest. Following are notes of interest wher evor ico forms from The New England Homestead : One of the secrets of keep ing ice is to have it packed so closely that there is no chance for air to enter either between the layers or between the cakes in the layer. To secure this, every cake must be of uniform width and cut perpendicular. Where ponds are too small to use ico plows, a gauge should be made of two boards fastened by crosspieces (to make it of tho desired width), and from 12 to 15 feet long. By laying this down on the ice one of the hooks of tho tongs will scratch deep enough to saw by. In cutting off the blocks they should bo about half the width of the cake longer than wide, in order to break joints in packing. To smooth tho surface of tho layer where the cakes may be of differ ent thickness or roughness, a long han dled adz will enable any ono to make it as smooth as a floor. All joints should, bo filled with snow, fine ice or sawdust. Sawdust should bo packed around the outside from 4 to 6 inches thick. Experience has proved that fine salt hay or coarso bog grass is a much better covering for the top than sawdust, un less a now supply of tho lattor is pro cured every year, as it soon rots and be comes denso enough to form a good con ductor of heat, and in hot weather will ferment, thus generating heat enough to cause a rapid melting of the top layer. The hay, on the contrary, forms) a loose, light oovering, is easily removed and cannot heat unless a very thick cov ering ia used. Fancies and Fallacies. "Plant beans with tho eye down. r On the envelopes inclosing lima beans; bought of most seedsmen in the United States the purchaser is advised to plant with the eye down to insure successful vegetation. An Amerioan Agriculturist correspondent in this connection writes: Having never followed this advice in a successful experience of 40 years, tho following experiment was made last spring in two adjacent hills. In one, ten beam were carefully placed with the eye down. In the other, ten were dropped in the usual way except that care was taken to have none with the eyo down. cvcn plants came in the hill in which tbo Leans wero planted with tho eye down, while every bean produced a plant in the other. "Plant potatoes with cut side down." When a boy, assisting in my father's garden, I was required, at the cost of much wasted energy, to carefully place each pioco of potato with the cut side down. When I planted my first crop, the potatoes were dropped like corn, und to the expressed surprise of the old planters a porfoct etaud wan secured. IN GOOD FAITH. Potato Scab.

A Senator Wolcott'a Efforts on Ilehalf of an International Money Conference. , Senator Wolcott's effort to secure an international conference to promote the use of Bilver as money is strictly in the line of the pledges of the Republican platform adopted at St. Louis. Major McKinley, in his letter of acceptance, pledged his hearty support of the prin ciple, the campaign was fought out upon it and the good faith of the sound money forcos demands its fulfillment. International agreement is the only pos sible means for restoring silver to its former position, or even of preventing it from sinking yet lower. The proposition is not so chimerical as some extreme advocates of tho gold standard and the 50 cent dollar repndi ationists affect to believe. Tho nations of Europe are in no better position with a limited supply of money metal than the United States and while they will certainly not go upon a silver basis there is no good reason why they may not oonsent to the joint use of both gold and silver. France is using a large quan tity of subsidiary silver and Germany is using some. It is to their advantage to uphold the value of the metal by inoreased uso, and it is not unreasonable to suppose they will bo willing to join the other commercial nations in such an effort. y Even England will not fail to see tho advantage of an international currency based upon both gold and silver in pro moting international commorce. Wed ded as it is to tho single gold standard at home, it is more interested in its for eign trade and its colonies. It is not to be expected that it will favor a bimetal lio coinage for use in Great Britain, but it may be brought into an agreement for a larger uso of silver as a basis for joint metallic currency to facilitate ex changes. Nothing worse than failuro can follow effort, and failure to accom plish anything in this case will leave the United States where it is upon a sound gold standard. On the other hand, tho effort may be attended with a success that will bo of material ad vantage to this country. Pittsburg Dispatch. FREE TRADE FAILING. William Lloyd Garrison Carried Away by "Beautiful Languldge." In 1892 Mr. William Lloyd Garrison, in a speech delivered before the New England Tariff Reform league (now the New England Free Trade league), said that tho free traders hud "hitched their wagon to a star and had allied them selves with the law of gravitation." Wo havo no means of knowing just ex actly what Mr. Garrison .meant by this phrase. Perhaps he was merely carried away by tho "beautiful languidge. " That is a little failing which most freo traders have. Inasmuch as they cannot have soundness, they must have sound. But, whatever Mr. Garrison's exact meaning by the phrase was, his state ment of the inherent downward quality of free trade was a stroke of genius. The freo traders have most undoubtedly "allied themselves to the law of gravi tation," and it looks now as though the law of gravitation had proved too much even for the star to which they hitched their wagon, for if ever there was, a star to which the free trade wagon was hitched it was a falling star, and it went out in darkness on Nov. S, 1896. We could stand it very well if the free trade star were the only thing which fell in obedienco to the force of gravita tion inherent in freo trade. But unfor tunately it is not. The wages of work men, the value of property, the sales of business men, our whole industrial prosperity, have been dragged down by the free trade law of gravitation. The wholo tendency of freo trade in its effect on our industrial life is down, down, down, until the industrial condition of this country shall have reached tho low level of the conditions which exist in tho countries of Europe and of Asia. Mr. Garrison's characterization of free trade was true beyond what he dreamed of and quito tallies with the declara tion of Major McKinley that free trade "levels down, a protective tariff levels up."

Prom tht Ibtriot, Jackson, Mich. Mrs. J. M. Aikin, wife of the pastor of the Free Methodist Church, of Spring -Arbor, Mich., cannot say too much in praise of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. Mrs. Aikin has always been a hard working wo man and has reared a funiily of twelve chil dren. For several years past she has been gradually running down in health, until a year ago &he was completely prostrated with female weakness, stomach trouble and gen eral debility. She tells her own story in this way : MI was hardly able to do anything. My appetite was cone, I could not sleep and I really believed I was slowly passing away. I had tried many physicians and taken al most all kinds of medicines, but it did me no good, and I could see plainly that I was gradually growing worse and was completely discouraged. About this time I saw an ad vertisement of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People and concluded to try them, for I believed that if they did me no good they could not make my condition worse. I Eent to Webb's drug store, in Jackson, and pro cured two boxes, I must confess I took them with but little hope of improvement. I had not taken all of the two boxes before I began to notice a change far the better. I contin ued the treatment until I had taken six boxes, and I am so much better that I am now not onry able to do my work, bu on several occasions have assisted my neigh bors. I must say I have never received so much ' good from so small an amount of medicine." A young lady who is a neighbor of Mrs. Aiken, but who objects to having her name used, was troubled with spasms, caused by suppressed menstruation and her condition became critical. Mrs. Aikin recommended Pink Pills to her. She had no faith in them, but to please her friend she sent to Webb's and procured a box. Before she had taken them a week she felt better, and after taking six boxes she is apparently a well woman. Another young lady who declined to allow her name to be used in priut was very low with Iiright's disease and her life was de. spaired of. Upon Mrs. Aikin's recommen dation she began taking Pink Pills, and uf ter having used them but a few months, she is in better health than for years, and she gives all Ihe credit to the wonderful cura tive qualities of Pink Pills. In concluding her story Mrs. Aikin said: ' My recovery, as well as those of the two girls mentioned, has been so remarkable that I would like all the world to know what a remedy I found in Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and if mv statement will induce any sufferers to try them.I am sure they will be greatly improved, and l gladly give it." UNSTINTED PRAISE. From Courier-Herald, Saginaw, Mich. There are many ways in which people may prove benefactors to the human race. There ure those who, oi tneir aounaance, spenu larce sums in erectine public buildines. lay ing out and beautifying parks, and in other ways make the cities in which they reside nleasant and attractive. Others spend their money in charitable work and in alleviating the sutlenngs ot their les9 lortunate leuows. and for these acts these people are revered and honored and called blessed. The man who having obtained relief from sickness and makes public the means by which lie regain ed his health is. while his name may not be published as extensively as he who epends bis money lavishly lor the beneut ot others, none the less a public benefuctor. The pretty little village of Tuscola is the oldest place in the county of the same name. It is quietly located, away from the railway, but, in spiteof itsquiet location, the meritsof a sterling remedy nave become known there, and one of its citizens testifies to its eiiiciency. William Webb, of that village, Is One of its substantial citizens, who conducts a tile yard, there. A representative of the Covrur-IIer-aid visited Tuscola recently and hearing that Mr. Webb had been a suflerer from ill health, and had been cured by the remedy above mentioned, called on him for the purpose ot Ascertaining the truth of this report. ' A sturdy, quiet-appearing man was point ed out to the visitor as Mr. Webb, but as he was apparently in good health, Jie was just then engaged in wheeling a barrow loaded with clay up a steep incline from the pit to the manufacturing department of the yard, the reporter was in doubt as to the gentle man in question being the man he was look ing fnr am in- IihiI fxrected to hnd a man who. at least, would not look as healthy as did the gentleman pointed out as Mr. Webb. To make sure he inquired, " IsthisMr. Webb?" and received an answer in the affirmative. The reporter Btated his errand, remarking that a man who could handle a load such as Mr. Webb had just wheeled up the incline, could not be in very poor health. To this Mr. Webb laughingly replied that he was at Jresent enjoying very good health and had or a year or more. Continuing he said : "About a year and a half ago I was not like this. I was not confined to my bed, but was completely worn out. I would get up In the morning feeling much more tired thaq when I went to bed; had no appetite for breakfast, often not being able to eat any thing, and when I sat down it seemed almost like death to try to get up. i couiu uo nom ing and was badly discouraged. I took a number of remedies which I saw advertised as beneficial in cases similar to mine, but re ceived no benefit from them. "Finally I saw Dr. Williams' Pink Pilla for Pale People advertised, and, although I had little faith in them, resolved to try them, thinking there might possibly be a chance, for relief. Accordingly, I sent for six boxes and began taking them, and almost im mediately commenced to feel better, and in a short time was able to resume work, and am plensed to say the old, weary feeling has not returned. I am now fifty-five years old, and am doing the work which last season I employed two men to do. I can eat and sleep well and feel excellently." Continuing, Mr. Webb said: "These pills also helped my wife greatly. Since the birth of our last child, w ho is now nearly fourteen years of age, my wild has suffered from a dis ease which rendered her almost helpless. I do not know what the doctors called it, but I know what it was. It was a sort of para lysis, and she was unable to do any house work. We tried several doctors, but they seemed unable to eive her permanent relief. I sent for live dollars worth of Pink Pills and she commenced taking them. She im proved rapidly, and the pills completely cured her. She is fifty-five years of age, the same age as myself, aud is now able to do her housework without a hired girl, 'and these men all board with us" arid he pointed to five or six men at work in the yard. "My son's wife was also ailing and Pink Tills made a new woman of her. I can and do recommend these pills to all who suffer as I or my wife did, as I believe they will cure them. I know of a number of people who have been benefited by them. They are a great remedy, and people who are ill should try them, as they are sure, I think, to be benehted by them. I cannot say too much for what they have done for me," and Mr. Webb resumed his work with a vigor which indicated that he was feeling quito well just at that time, at least. Dr. Williams' rink Tills contain all the elements necessary to give new life and rich ness to the blood and restore shattered nerves. They are sold in boxes (never in loose form, by the dozen or hundred) at 60 cents a box, or six boxes for $2.50, and may be had of all drug gists or directly by mail from Dr. Williams Medicine Company, Schenectady, N.Y "DIRT DEFIES THE KING."
