Dont tolerate a leaky cover Success does not cOme without an effort There are no ironclad rules in beekeeping You should re done or more good books on bees One succeeds best in one way and another in another We consider the A B C of Bee Culture the best book on bees One must be a thinker as well as a worker to succeed with bees Think what you are doing and do it right and youll succeed The new pure food law will be some help to the bee keeper You can not do without a good smoker for the cost of one dollar The one and onehalf story hive for comb honey is the best hive for one who is raising comb I honey for market All small tools used in the 9 should have a red easiIlyOne should wear light clothing in the apiary Dark clothing has a tendency to irritate the bees and cause them to sting

pleasant and profitable forget it v If you would increase your happiness and prolongyour life forget your neighbors faultsI Forget the slander you have heard Forget the temptations Forget peculiarities of your friends and only remember the good points which make you fend of them Forget all per sonal quarrels or histories you may have heard by accident Blot out as far as possible all the disagreeables of life they will con1but they will grow larger when you remember them and the constant thought of the acjs of meanness will only tend to make you more familier with them Obliterate

she should marry a man who makes at least ten times as much as her fathers So man has a right to spend money on beer and then claim that times are so hard he cannot pay his grocery and meat bills When a man steals money from another man he absconds but when money is stolen from the people he doesnt have to run- ofF We are not a pessimist but of late years it does seem that the tornado has cut in ahead ofth swallow as a harbinger of spring A man is always willing to refer to the temptations he resisted but gets macl if he is reminded of the temptations to which he succumbed Dont cram your opinions down the throats of other people some of the opinions which seem important to you are very objectionable to others Suggested as a daily prayer of gratitude for some fortunate men And I wish to give thanks most of all because my wife is a good manager There is a rich sound tothe word banquet Suggesting terrapin quail venison champagne sparkling wit and that sort of thing But it really means cold ham ice water and dull speeches Twelve Things to Remember The value of time The joy of originating The virtue of patience The obligation of duty The power of kindness The worth of character The wisdom of economy The pleasure of working The dignity of simplicity The influence of example The improvement of talent The success of perseverance Take care of the Boys Are you sure you know wliere your boys are evenings posi tively know or just that they are in the neighborhood some where Every boy is a live wire thai unless properly insulated wilTdp mischief to himself and others Even then the wires get crossed and there are all sorts of compli cations Of course your girls are safely indoors under the parental eyes or properly chaperoned else where you would not dream of allowing them out after night had fallen but the boys can take care of themselves you say That is one of the greatest mis takes parnets make Your boys are as tender plants as your girls The old I idea that a daughter is more of a responsibility than a son is a mistake If anything the boys are more of a charge for a girl is put on the defensive from the time she is born she is made aware of the raging lion on every streetcorner seeking to devour h rbut the boy in many cases is totally unarmed with advice of the rignt nature and is sent out to do Battle with the monster whose habitat is the corner and

growing too fast to be fruitful it will only make them grow the faster in the spring Wait till teyare in full flush of growth in May or June if you want to drive t eir surplus energies into fruit buds Be sure to carry a paint pot along with the pruners and whenever a limb as much as inch in diameter is cut off cover the wound with oil and white lead to keep out dampness and the entrance of fungi spores that will produce rot In the spring this coyer is not so necessary for as soon as growth begins the trees will begin tocover its wounds with new Wopd that will creep over it from all sides Ex

geants in the army take three years to teach the soldiers Tha ball of the foot is planted first the legs tire kept straight with no wabbling of the knees the body is kept erect on the hips and as far as possible the Walker glides along The only marked difference between the walk of the soldier and the roller skate girl is that the soldiers shoul ders are kept re tand well back The girl throws her

seri ously considered by the governments of Europe and will be olie of the important questions taken up by the International Aeronautic federation which meets in LondonJan 101 This is a statement recently made by thbtAcroportant factor in European aeronautics Statesjexpected or some other going out after all IIAmerlcancaPitalIst franchises but he treat the matter f I know it sounds fantastic he said to a reporter of the New York Herald but really there is no Joke about it The house of lords and the United States supreme court will be found struggling with this new legal problem before we know it because it is a thing that must be settled just as much as the right of way for railroads had to be settled years ago As a matter of fundamental law every man in a dirigible balloon or an aeroplane is guilty of trespass when he passes over another mans land He has no more right to sail a mile above your farm than he has to build a tunnel under ft Of course the thing ooksabsurdnow but within the next decade probably much sooner than that these cases will be in the courts and will have to be decided one way or another The English common law which was supposed to be built upon common ofIthat a mans title to land extends to the core of the earth and to the infin ities of the heavens Every boy in law school learns that very early in the course The old civil law which was modeled after the Roman law and which is the basis of all European con tinental laws has the same provision concerning trespass IThere is no question whatever that hisIinterestingIwhen aerial craft shall come into com monuse And there is no question at all that they will come into general use much sooner than we expect It will be a somewhat difficult task to apprehend sky trespassers will it not Mr Bishop was asked Oh well he said I suppose that matter will take care of itself No doubt we shall have aerial police but I am simply talking about the legal as pect of the thing Who ownS the soil owns to the sky That was the liny of the early Normans in England and that is our law today So you can see to use a bit ofvslang what aviators are Tip against Mr Bishop told what steps had been- takenin France toward meeting these aerial legal difficulties IAlready he said the Aero Club Iof France has established a standard price for an acre ttf be paid by aero nauts and aviators for damage done to chieflyIlof France laws are being enacted to provide for aeroplanes which it is realized over there will soon be a corn mon mode of travel In Paris the police have been instructed to go immediately to any aero plane or dirigible landing within the city limits and search it for taxable food liquors or gasoline There are now something like fifteen or eighteen places in Paris set apart for the land ing of aeroplanes and the police Understand that a little later it will be a part of their duty to watch these spots just as much as the gates of the city are watched now to levy tax on all gasoline in automobiles purchased outside of the city The French people recognize that aeroplanes and dirigibles are soon to change conditions there radically and they are preparing for the new order rof things The hardest thing to control will be local smuggling Onehalf or twothirds of the revenue of French cities comes from the octroi the tax levied upon all food and liquors brought into the cities from the outside This law Is especially annoying to motorists These automobiles in the air will be able to slip intO the city at any convenient point at any hour of the day or night In facttthe people of the European countries all along the veryserIousIIze that geographical boundaries are going to be Destroyed They know that smuggling will be made the easiest thing on earth and that the air will

Farther From the Atlantic Coast In response to an appeal recently made by the fishermen of New Eng land Uncle Sam is fitting out an expe flition in Gloucester Mass which will attempt to solve the mystery of the rapidly disappearing mackerel along the eastern coast This novel expedition in the GramIpns will be in charge of Captain rry Cook an expert mackerel catcher Its chief aim will be to find the new Toute or routes of this elusive fish in Its annual journeys from southern waters to the north In the last quarter century the courses traversed by the mackerel have tended more and more offshore until in the last five years the New England mackerel fishing fleet has been greatly depleted because 9f inability to trace the fish Captain Benjamin F McGray of the schooner Oriole one of Bostons old time seiners says If the Grampus fails to find the unI known course the mackerel now In going north and south we probably shall have to go without our mackerel soon These fish coming from where no one knows usually appear in April off Hatteras making their way north to Labrador Shipments of catches I are made early at Hampton Roads and New York As the fish proceed north ward the fleet keeps in pursuit as far i as Cape North reaching Massachu setts bay about July and afterward crossing to the Nova Scotia coast and going around into the gulf of St Law y rence where the fish are taken by I seines and with hand lines as late as NovemberToday hundred barrels of fish are regarded as a good catch while in the earlier days of the industry 300 bar rels were considered about fair HOW

InventorDc- dares Appropriation For Aeronautics Should Have Been 5000000 Napoleons dictum that God fights on the side of the strongest artillery will no longer hold true In the very next war between civilized countries the world will see that God fights on the side that has the strongest flying machines and the most of them This was part of a striking word pic ture of what the next war will be like which Hudson Maxim inventor and scientist painted for his hearers the other night at the aeronautic evening of the Automobile Club of Amer lea in its clubrooms in New York He predicted among other things that every village after awhile will have to have its brigade of batteries of field guns for the destruction of airships just as it now has its volun teer fire department War he said will become once again as horrible as it was in the days of hand to hand fighting In war the frontier is the line of battle Mr Maxim said An invad ing army carries its frontiers with it The flying machine will obliterate all frontiers and there will be no city or village that may not be a possible battlefield Future wars will not be decided as heretofore by artillery thundering from hill to hill Artillery however will not by any means be done away with The field gun will still eat up shrapnel and the big navy cannon will still shake the shores But rfverything will no longer depend upon the conquering of positions with artillery fire Although flying machines will not be able to carry any artillery yet an army of raiders with the raiders outfit will be able to reconnoiter and alight in defenseless places destroy bridges rip up railroads cut communications burn towns and blow up magazines stores and powder mills As in future wars these visitations may come any night to any inland town no home will be safe The flare of the torch and the glint of the sword may be the first visions of an awak ening Death and rapine may any moment come thundering at the door Nolonger will war Le confined to restricted areas whence women and children may be removed to places of safety There will be no refuge whither they can fly from the Huns and vandals of war Gunpowder can no longer effectually bar the invader The aeronaut can laugh at forts coast fortifications and battleships The flying machine opens human his tory again to the page when there were no forts along the frontiers and no quick firing guns when blood and brawn alone stood between home loved ones and the fierce barbarian when wolves of rapine murder and slavery howled beyond the wall when love and life were victorys reward and death or worse the forfeit for de feat rtWe must have our air fleets nu merous enough and strong enough to meet and repel any invasion of our sky and in time of war around our entire national horizon aerial scouts and aeroplane destroyers by night and day must stand ready perched to fly to the attack It may come that every country town must have its battery of field guns supplied with shrapnel and can ister as it now has Its fire brigade while possibly every ablebodied man invalid and cripple will be provided with side arms and rifle as in the old pioneer days they were armed to meet the menace of the red Indian devils A bill calling for an appropriation of 500000 for aeronautical work has just failed to pass congress The mI ought to have been for 5000000 and should have been passed by a unani mous vote Five million dollars is less than half the cost of the latest battleship At the end of the meeting a memo apl1jpropasking it to place the aeronautic bill

INSTALLING THE PRESIDENT Method of Handling an Inauguration Where the Money Comes From How is an inauguration made Does the incoming or outgoing president have a band in its preparation Dqes congress appropriate the money for the parades the bands the lights the stands the carriages the fireworks the flags the medals and the thousand and one other features of the huge quadrennial jollification Does thee secretary of the treasury go down into Uncle Sams coffers and find the hard money needed to foot all the bills or is the cash forthcoming from some other source Probably not one in ev ery hundred visitors to the national capital knows where the money comes fromif he cares at all about the sub ject He knows that for the price of a ticket to Washington and accom modation at a hotel or boarding house he can see the old president go out of office the new president confer in and can see one of the most brilliant and diversified parades in the world a parade that consumes five or sIx hours in passing a given point That is sufficient for the transient traveler Those of an inquiring bent however would learn if they asked the proper persons that neither the government as represented by the secretary of the treasury nor congress nor any other high official authority pays the bills The business men of Wasihngton sup ply the sinews that are needed to bring the show through to a success ful finish and reap the reward in the shape of increased trade and town pride In other words the inauguration of the president of the United States is purely a local affair so far asthe preparations and the paying of the bills are concerned Of course it is a great na tional one might almost say with reason an international event of the first theIno necessity for all the noise and gold lace all the parades arid fireworks The president could take the oath of office at the White House or at his home in the woods or down in the lowest levels of a coal mine and itIwould be just as binding upon and he would be none the less the president of the biggest republic on earth The wild hurrah of the crowds the playing of the bands the pageant of marching soldiers the ball in the pension building rind the gathering of distinguished visitors from all per the world are not at all necessary to the Installation of the executive They all help make the show worth seeing however and each return of the quad rennial March finds the officials in charge of the arrangements outdoing their predecessorsfinds them giving the visitors a bigger show than everI for their money ADVOCATE OF STAGE CENSOR Theatrical Managers President Would Close Five Shows In New York ICharles Burnham manager of Wali- lacks theater in New York and president of the Theatrical Managers Association of New York who came out the other day with a protest against indecent plays and suggested that It would soon be necessary to have a stage censor said If I had my way there are five shows in New York I would close It is a harsh thing to say that there should bea stage censorship but the justjtinue to put on the indecent shows that have drawn the crowds for the last twelve months or more we will have la stage censor Archbishop Farley right There are shows running on Broadway today to which no right minded man would take his mother his wife or his sister It is hard to say who is to blame Suppose the New York Theatrical Managers association were to resolve tonight that it would not offer any but clean shows Tomorrow night some merchant or ticket speculator or exbookmaker would lease a theater and put on an indecent show And a week later the Managers association would forget the resolution The other fellow would be getting all the money and it isnt human nature to starve long for the sake of a principle Marc Klaw of the firm of Klaw S Erlanger aid he didnt think a stage censor was at all necessary There are plenty of existing laws to stop indecent shows if these laws wereVproperly enforced
