Comblning Bees and Poultry.
V recent government bulletln mentloned
the advantage to bo galned by comblning
thc poultry buslness wlth elther dalrying
or market gardcnlng. A wrlter ln Farm
Poultry urges a unlon of poultry ralslng
and bco culture as an ldeal comblnntlori.
Itculers nre no doubt more or less famll
ier ho says, wlth tho Ufe and
haljlts of the hen, so I wlll devote a little
attentlon to tho bees, whlch work for
nothlng and board themselves, and at the
cl-se of tho season dlvldo wlth you thelr
t irnings. Nearly every one who has
e n a small open space has felt at one
tlme or other a longlng for tho pleasant
oi rupatlon of tendlng bees, but most peo
Tl are frlghtened nway from tho under
taklng by the dlfflcultles whlch seem to
prosent themselves. In the flrst place
th v aro puzzled to know how to mnko a
prnppr beglnnlng, and what tho requlre
mrnts really are, for lt goes wlthout say
Ins hat no person wlshes to Invest very
m ifli capltal ln an uncertalnty. A little
Iwklng Into the nuestlon wlll usually dls
cl ipe the fact that some one wlthln a
rnllus nf five or slx mlles of you Is a beo
kr' per of some degree. If thls Is tho
r "e, lt ls well to buy your bees close at
h'lme, even lf they nre common bees, and
in a box hlve. Of course lt Is best to be
K wlth only one colony, whlch ln the
sprlng of the year conslsts of one queen,
a Uxr hundred drones, and from 20,000 to
5"ono workers. Thls wlll keep you fully
oc upled at flrst, and furnlsh you wlth
fx.iorlence which would be costly If ob
tnned on a larger scale.
Your colony of common bees In a box
e should not cost yoii more than from
V 'o $5. Afterward you can transfer
'ipm into a moveablo frame hlve and ln
troduce an Itallan tiueen. As tho queen
is the mother of all the bees In the hlve,
vou wlll soon have a race of thorough
brcds, It has bcen my experlence nnd
that of beckeepers generally that there
are fewer rlsks and larger proflts In com
rarlson to the amount of capltal Invested
la bee keeplng than In any other busl
ness. It Is a conservatlve estlmate of tho
bN keepers generally, however, that
wh hlve should brlng ln about J5 a year,
ln favorablo seasons conslderable more.
And as each hlve also throws off a swarm
annually, lt ls easy to seo how a llttlo
wnltal Invested In bees wlll grow and
m'Jltlply, besides yleldlng a very fair per
cent. of proflt.

electrlclan, wlll ennble tho man npplylng

Armor plnte, such as ls used on the Unl

ns nn nuger would blto Its way through
a plnnk of northern plne. Tho flrst publlc
exhlbltlon of thls Invention was mado not
long ngo In Mllwnukee. An enormous
boller foundntlon was to be removed from
the bnsement of a bulldlng. It was Im
posslble to get thls grent mass of metnl
out nf the bulldlng ns It lay wlthout tear
Ing down n portlon of the wnlls, And It
was seemlngly Impossible to cut the
plate Into pleces. Some ono mentloned
the new process of cuttlng stcel llke soft

to Mllwnukee and mako a test. Tho In
ventor ensconsed hlmself In n little steel
house, placed two pnlrs of bluo spectacles
on hls eyes, rfnd nfter connectlng hls cnr
bon polnt wlth an electrlcnl current,
touched tho steel plnte. Spectators saw
a brllllant flamo shoot up. It was a whito
llght, produclng extreme heat, and near
ly bllnded thc onlookers. Tho operntor
was well protectod, nnd dld the work
wlth npparently little dlscomfort. At the
rnta of a foot In flve mlnutes, cuttlng or
burnlng n wldo spaco In tho plate, tho
carbon polnt wlth its wonderful powcr
worked nlong, nnd In a short tlme tho
enormous mass of steel had been reduced
to frngment8 that could bo easlly handled.
The matter was rcported to bankers of
Chlcago and Mllwnukee, nnd they Inves
tlgated the matter carefully.
Expcrts who mado an Investlgatlon at

carbon of clcctrode Is attached to a wood

To thls clamp a wlro Is fastencd, the

wlre ls attached to the hlnge or lock, as
the fancy of tho operator dlctates. Tho
eyes and face of tho workman are pro

a box of alumlnum or sheet-lron. The
