FOR THE BEE HIVES i jointer the Bees with Care und Bring them Through Strong By L C Alwin Minnesota v J t r The drawing herewith illustrates my ti method of packing colonies in the spring The first hive shown is one used in the Ferris two queen sys tem but the method applies to eight or ten frame coloniesshown in the sec ond drawing On account of the late cold and disagreeable springs packing las become a necessity in these north ern states and the above plan Jt iwems to me has proven the most practical of any that I have employed The reason I use two pieces of tar Jed is 141frameit ought to if good results are secured anyAdvantagecept that there would be a double layer of tarred paper in front in the rear and on the top but this can offthe expense of using twp pieces for Live There is no doubt that one piece of tarred paper per hive would be better I use only two pieces for the Ferris hives My eightframe hives Ira all packed with a single piece In putting on this packing I have knot made it a practice to tie it down With a string but use broadheaded t tacks that I can easily drive into the wood with my thumb But I have tied andythink it just as good as tacks if not J letter I am not an advocate of wintering asI1wintered and am at the present time bees outdoors successfully Hy success Is due to a great extent How the Paper Is Put on to the mild winters we have been hav ing the last few years But the sys tem of packing that I describe is meant for spring protection but I do not hesitate to advocate this method X f packing for winter in a climate like that of Ohio Although our winters have been mild our springs have sim ply beenwell I cant think of a word strong enough to express myself prop erly =but the average temperature from the 1st of April to the 15th of May was 40 degrees Fahr last year and in spite of these conditions I had jmy colonies boiling over with bees and swarming by the last week of May and first of June and if bees rear brood extensively so that by the last of May the hives are just boiling over with bees and brood with the temper ature outside ranging below freezing you can certainly winter them out doors successfully in a climate Where the temyerature rarely goes below zero Last spring March 15 on account of the mild weather and the restlessness of the bees I set 54 good colonies on their summer stands Of these I packed 41 according to my method and because I ran out of newspapers the remaining 13 were packed with tarred paper only This warm weather was soon followed by a cool spell which lasted until the last days of April On the first of May we were blessed 1 with a foot and a half of snow This was soon followed by severe cold weather with the temperature ranging from five to ten degrees weekra practice- to give each colony a pint of hot sugar r eyrup each day The 41 wellpacked colonies took theirs every day would have taken more The 13 wi r only tarred paper would not take the f filrup during this cold spell and every t coldV touched Following this cold spell 4 came a period of warm weather and I took the occasion to examine the bees and see how they withstood the cold weather The 41 newspaper packed colonies had in the eight frame colonies eight frames of broods or six frames of solid brood and were bpiling over with bees and of the I thereti of solid brood and they were hanging out at the time of examination with the temperature at 78 degrees in the shade Of the 13 colonies packed only with tarred paper eight were dead starved Two absconded and went into other hives and three were stick ing out their stings and shaking their wings at me when I took off their cover and tfy feeding and coaxing I was able to build them up to be fairly good colonies for wintering by fall It might be of interest for me to say that the 41 colonies that were rearing brood during this cold spellS averaged 100 pounds per colony in last years poor season In commenting on Mr Alwins meth ods the editor of Bee Culture says The use of two pieces of tarred paper in place of one will facilitate very materially the packing and unpacking but we would suppose that at the line botIbetween the packing Perhaps you overcame this in some way It is a little surprise to us that you secured as good results after feeding in such cold weather even though the sirup was given them hot It would have been our opinion that this hot sirup would have so stirred up the col ony that bad results would have fol lowed At all events we would say that beginners should be cautioned for unless hives are well packed and colonies very strong such feeding would be a very doubtful proceeding- In a general way we observe that where your hives were packed with newspapers under tarred paper you not only secured excellent results in winter but increased materially the amount of honey We sere no reason why hives well papered under caps should not winter their colonies just as well as those having a wooden car over them It was demonstrated last winter in our own yard and reports went to prove it that a mere paper cap withqut packing under it is hardly sufficient protection for outdoorwin tered colonies in localities where the temperature goes down to ten or 2 above zero occasionally hovering around the zero point There should be several folds of newspaper old carpeting blankets or something under the cap to provide the necessary in sulation for a cold atmosphere wil penetrate a seveneighthsinch board If however such boards be coverer with several folds of newspaper wit a good protecting cap either of papej or wood good results will ordinarlj follow SELFBOILED SPRAY MIXTURE W M Scott pathologist in charge ol orchard spraying demonstrations for the bureau of plant industry at aWsh ington has been studying the self boiled limesulphur mixture as a promising fungicide and finds what he believes to be encouraging results In relating the results of his experiments in circular 1 lately issued by the department of agriculture Mr Scott says the mixture that gave the most promising results was composed of ten pounds of sulphur flowers or flour and 15 pounds of fresh stone lime to 50 gallons of water and may be prepared as follows Place the lime in a 50gallon barrel and pour a two er threegallon bucket of boiling water over it Immediately add the sulphur and another bucket of hot water The heat from the slak ing lime will boil the mixture violently for several minutes Some stirring is necessary to prevent burning and more water should be added if the mass gets too thick to stir but the cooking is more effectual when the minimum quantity of water is used usually from six to eight gallons be- Ing required A piece of old carpet or gunnysack thrown over the top of the barrel helps to keep in the heat The boiling will continue from 20 to 30 minutes de pending upon the quality of the lime When the boiling ceases dilute with cold water to make 50 gallons stir thoroughly and strain through a sieve of about 50 meshes to the inch in ordei to take out coarse particles of lime but all the sulphur should be carefully worked through In a similar manner enough for 15C gallons may be prepared in a barrel byusing 30 pounds of sulphur and 4E pounds of quicklime with about 2C gallons bf boiling water When the boiling ceases the barrel should bE filled with cold water and diluted witt 100 gallons more when transferred tc the spray tank reportedIpounds of sulphur and ten pounds oJ lime to 50 gallons of water gave ex cellent results This would indicate that a much more dilute mixture thaI the 101550 formula may prove to be a satisfactory fungicidde The wash was also prepared with cold water in stead of foiling water and in some cases a portion of the lime was al first withheld and later added a smat lump at a time in order to prolong the boiling hut the experiments have not been sufficient to determine deft nitely the correct formula and the besi method of nrenaration y a1

MONTANAS FINE PARK CITY t Trains Run Through Avenue of Trees to Vine Covered Railroad Station Paris Gibsons Enterprise In Starting Its Parking System Great Falls Mont has several points of distinction that can be copied by other towns and might well excite the envy of the largest cities The succes sion of cascades through which the Missouri river flows In passing its site affords the town an aggregate avails ble water power greater than any oth er iu the country These falls together with the Giant springs comprisL one of the wonders of the west but their beauty like that of Niagara is desjtined to gradual destruction as the ap plication of the water to commercial purposes extends In educational fa cilities this comparatively small town Is rich and it contains nineteen church es being one to every thousand of its population which is proportionally twice as many as Chicago has and two and a half times the number possesse In New York But the feature In which Great Fat takes the greatest pride and that which justifies its claim to being the mosl beautiful city of the northwest is its parking system says the Craftsman for November After passing through hundreds of miles of treeless country the westbound traveler comes with delighted surprise upon this orderly little town in Its leafy setting The rail road station and yards which are usually t 3 ugliest part of a new settle merit here have been converted into a place of beauty The train runs through an avenue of trees and depos its one at a vine covered building tha- Is t In striking contrast to the usual grimy structure The approach to the station on the town side is rendered attractive by well kept grass plots and flower beds through which are broad carriageways This aproach Is but an Introduction to the sylvan beauty of Great Falls Extending along the river front is the principal park Its natural loveliness enhanced by well tended lawns and artificial lakes This wealth of wood land in the desert is strongly signifi cant of the spirit of homemaking the tree lined streets with their pret villas set on terraced grass plots seem to extend silent welcome to the stran gerIt is only in the present generation that the idea of raising trees onUdry land was seriously considered and put into practice Great Falls was a pioneer in the movement It has no pre edent to encourage or guide it but it has definitely solved the problem and proved that a desert city may be made as beautiful and comfortable as any situated in the humid states Twentyfive years ago when Paris Gibson and his family migrated from Minneapolis to Montana the land upon which great Falls now stands was a barren tract of sand thinly covered twith buffalo grass and patches of sage For miles in every direction the country was devoid of human habi tation except perhaps the rude shelter of a sheep herder or the solitary shanty aiof a squatter was from the park system of Min neapolis that Gibson derived the inspiration which prompted him to at tempt tree planting in his new home inHe broached the subject to his fellow but they treated his sugges hadarnever therefore it could not This attitude they maintained un it was

eggsSomeclaim that they have just as good results from older animals but the experience of the many does not seem to bear out such a statement We would like to know what our readers think about it What age fowl has given you the best returns Has your experience been in accordance with the following report from the Oregon experiment station as presented by Prof Dryden of that station It is a point in management that I wish to speak of here one point in many that must be taken into account- if poultry keeping is to be made a success It is a question of the most profitable age of the hen Poultrymen poultryinvestigations years are pretty well informed on this point but the importance of this sub ect is not yet generally appreciated The writer carried on for several years at the Utah experiment station a line ofdeferent ages for egg production The same hens were kept year after year under similar conditions and a record kept of production and of food con proveddthe cow nroduasthe most profitable and there was a gradual decrease in productiveness each succeeding year It is safe to figure this decrease at 25 per cent each year With average prices for food and for eggs it is not profitable to keep hens after they have finished their second year of laying The first or pullet year is very profitable the second will give a satisfactory profit but during the third year the egg yield will seldom pay for the food consumed These conclusions of course apply only where the eggs are sold at mar ket prices Fowls that have a special value as breeding stock should be kept longer but the notion that the layerIunless she caught in the trap nest The fact that she sings a joyful lay paints her comb a brilliant red and scratches a vigorous scratch should not be ac cepted as sufficient grounds for commuting the sentence It is safe to say that poultry keep ers would be many thousands of dol killingtYplacing them with new stockwith the exceptions noted above WARM WATER FOR HENS Device Which Will Help to Provide crComfort for Hens in Winter The drawing shown herewith taken from the Orange Judd Farmer illustrates a simple device for providing fowls with warm drinking water which is believed to be more condu cive to egg laying than cold water A shallow box forms a chamber in which a small lamp is placed and surrounded by a tomato can with some holes punched near the bottom for Warm Water Device draft The top of the can is cut out evenly and the can itself is placed immediately below the hole cut in the top of the wooden box A couple of thin pieces of wood are nailed on opposite slides of this holeand a common drinking fountain placed on top The warm air coming from the light ed lamp prevents the water from freezing CEMENT IN POULTRY HOUSES Its Use Makes the Cleaning of the Poultry House an Easy Task lCement is particularly adapted to the construction of poultry houses ex cept possiblythe floors If the cement is made smooth it will be easily cleaned at all times and a stream of water can be thrown onto it without doing any Injury It is not a harborer of lice mites or disease germs In the form of grout it is now bein used in the construction of the lowe parts of poultry houses and can be made of almost any thickness where stones are abundant When such foundations are laid they are rat proof and vermin proof Usually they go so deep into the ground that no animal will burrow under them But with the use of cement a man must know his mind before the poul try house is constructed Once con structed it cannot be changed as can a house made of boards without destroying the material out of which it is composed But if a man has so carefully laid his plans that he knows he will not change his mind as to his plans he can safely go ahead in the use of cement In his poultry house con struction and the more of it used the better I v tf1t i J t f c1 OBSERVE THE ANT Life Work and Methods of the Won derful Little Creature The world looks on In wonder at such engineering feats as the building of the Panama canal and the wild talk sometimes heard of a tunnel underneath the Atlantic ocean Is laughed at by all of us Yet armies of ants are doing work every day which for them is much more wonderful than what man is doing on the Panama canal and certain kinds of ants have been known to dig tunnels three miles long a work proportionately greater than for men to build a tunnel under the Atlantic from New York to Lon don Not only are ants great construc tionists but they have their cities and governments justas men do and like the human races civilized or otherwise they carry on wars The most densely populated municipalities are those formed by millions and millions of ants The loop district of Chicago does not comparewith the congestion in some of their cities yet their po adjustingI Section of Ant City out places in the forests and found their cities made up of dozens of hills which reach up four or five feet and are from 20 to 30 feet in circum ference On the outside these hills or ant palaces look rough and crude but order and decency reign within The hills have as many as 12 or 15 floors connected by staircases and here di vided according to their station the various grades of ants live work die and are buried Every ant hill has its cemeteryThe municipality has in it three grades of people the kings and queens the aristocrats and the workers Some of the ants act as soldiers some as police others as household servants or as working civilians And everyone does his or her duty or pays the penalty even the aristocrats If one of the workers tires of his or her task a fat ant policeman or he may be thin comes along and off goes the head of the sluggard Up at the sin gle entrance into the ant hill will be found a sentry day and night keeping o watch lest some sudden attack be made on the citadel When a hostHa body of ants is seen marching in his direction the alarm is given and the soldiers are immediately mobilized to go forth and give battle to the in vaders Woe betide even as powerful an enemy as man if he approach too near some kinds of ants The door of the ant hill opens into a passage about a quarter of an inch in diameter and this leads downward intothe house proper Galleries branch off in every direction connecting witH all sorts of rooms which vary in size according to the purpose for which they are built The construction can be better explainej by the illustration taken from the Pathfinder than by word pictures The compartments for the milch cows however may be a little confuse ing to the uninitiated if not explained Ants have their aphids mulch cows and dairymen look after them very carefully When springtime comes the attendants drive the aphids out to pasture on the blades of new grass each day taking them to a new place Then at milking time the milkmaids take the antcows and stroke them with their feet until they yield a drop of milk There is always a nursery full of children as the queens lay thousands of eggs which are hatched by other ants The infants and their nurses are interesting specimens of the race fourgthemrselves a soft kind of blanket in whIch they lie dormant for several days and the nurses take a rest When they awake they must be helped out of their blankets given a bath and pre pared for a trip outdoors The young ants have wings and the queens lead them into the open air for a short fly After the flight their wings are torn off and they settle down to become industrious Eddie Wanted a aFn Eddie not quite three wanted to ask his mother for a fan one

Count ItenNtMjilK t rnniitt it has deelr ed thnt if any mi fate shall eitli0 by himself ir by his duection or con sent 01 by his friend either directly or indirectly give loan or promise to spirituousting of value for the purpose o promoting or influencing his nomina tion his vote shall be thrown out and V 00 no account shall he be declare- the nominee for the office for whic Jhe has announced Both Judge Benton and Judge Hays have announced acceptance of this rule and have agreed to take the oath required by the committee Both are Honest high minded men and are we believe glad of the opportunity to put the judicial contest on a high plane We know two of the members of the committee personally and they ire not men idly to pass such resolu r lionsThe News therefore looks for a o race in this district that will be con ducted as it should be on the merits of the two candidates The next step in the same line is for the Democratic County Commit tee of Clark to pass similar resolu tions We know that some of the committee already favors such pol icyThe candidates outside of two or three would welcome it Every Democratic voter of this county who has the good of his party at heart should speak to his precinct commit ieeraan and urge him to favor such a only people who will object are the venal voters the floaters The candidates are naturally timid about making a move as they are afraid of the effect on such voters But the good citizen the man who is proud of his party has no such fear t and he can urge the respective corn forfThe present move isbutone step in the right direction With a clean primary we could soon expect a clean election If the Democratic leaders and Republican leaders of this county would agree among them selves to give the floaters the goby the thing is done Neither would lose by the agreement We are satised that if no money was spent at the next election except for absolutely legitimate expenses the vote would be about the same If one party buys theIsame Fight the devil with fire is the politicians motto 1THE RED CROSS STAMPS f t Because of the fact that as an En glish humorist has said nearly every one is hard up one man for a shill ing and another for a hundred rounds one of the great problems ofcharity is how to secure funds without ma v terially inconveniencing the donors The originators of the Red Cross Christmas Stamp have hit upon a happy solution of this problem The stamps are put on sale at a penny each the proceeds to go to the funds used to light tuberculosis A penny stamp upon the letters and packages ryir1 iIL you send during the Christmas holidays will not inconvenience you and in the aggregate these penny contri butions will aid one of the worthiest t charities in existences In many cities throughout the Unit ed States the newspapers are pub lishing stories of large donations be ing made in the form of orders fo Christmas stamps but the venders welcome the purchaser with one o more pennies as well as the large- purchaser One of the greatest pleasures of Christmas shopping should be that of making a contribu tion to the good work of the Ameri can Red Cross Society Do not sen a letter or package without a Christ mas stamp upon it The sales so far in Winchester have been very small Lexington ha given a second order for 50000 an Georgetown Berea and Cynthiana have also repeated their orders Do not let

The proper and profitable treatment of soil comes only by actual experiment Mr Frank I Mann a practical farmer of Iroquois county Illinoiis gives a bit of his experience as fol lowsWhen ten tons per acre of manure shipped at 55 cents per ton were aIr plied to land increasing the yield ten bushels of corn which sold at 50 cents per bushel the result was not very profitable So a little science was aIr plied An analysis of the soil showed a deficiency of phosphorus an ample supply of nitrogen a large amount of potassium with no acidity of the soil Test plots on which different elements- of plant food were applied gave no material increase in the yield from any treatment except where phos phorus was applied The increase 25 worth of nitrogen was one bushel per acre while four dollars worth of phosphorus increased the yield 17 bushels worth 850 while there was left in the soil available for future use enough phosphorus from this treatment for 650 bushels of corn Nothing was left from the nitrogen treatment but a surplus of nitrogen which proved to be an injury to the following crop To treat this 80acre field with 12 pounds of phosphorus per acre woul require one 40ton car of rock phos phate at a cost of 320 or 5000 tons of manure at a cost of 2500 at 5 cents per ton But the nitrogen i this field had been well kept up b a crop of clover every fourth yea since the land was virgin

Speech The reporter for The News has ever since the tobacco banquet been trying to decipher the pen scratchers that represented the toastmasters speech Mr Garner cant write and so The News had to trust to its own resources It is able to reproduce to day something of what was said by Mr Garner at the banquet The News believes everybody will be am ply repaid by its reading It is unique of its kind The following is speech as far as we could get it We Are Glad You Are Here in many communities at this time of night would be alarming yet we are gladyou are here and if there are any more like you at home are sorry they did not come The local committee has dragooned me into attempting the part of toast master and on account of their hab it of violating law order and prece dent have required me to respond to a toast and assigned me a subject Tobacco is good tochaw to smoke to dipnd to snuff What a subject I am expected toI affirm a proposition which no one now denies and has not since the book trust displaced the old series of school Teaders from which the small boy on Friday afternoons recit ed the lines of little Robert Reed who would not smoke nor chew tobacco so he squl and the little hypocrite who was reciting it usually was nearly strangled with tobacco juice before he could finish Mr Garner Protested X protested that no one c6uld dis cuss a subject like that The committee said r It was a splendid op ening for figures of speech and sich like then I demanded that they give me a compar ison a figure of speech or a sich like Light first dawned on 1 He said Take the osition Tobacco is good and say The American Tobacco Company in their fight with this So ciety bit off more than they could chaw That was Smoke was next in order Penn Taylor said my idea is this that when the trust claimed that they had sufficient stock on hand to last them for several years and that it would relieve the market to withholdour holdings that it was hot air lighter less convincing and less valuable than smoke This was agreed on if it could be remembered Gay Has At this point we came to the dip in our subject Robert Gay had an inspirations dead easy he said that the tobacco company had dipped this time into our pockets so deeply that we caught them before they could get out and made them show their handWe were now up to snuff The committee asked for further time Last night about twelve oclock the phone rang and after the usual in terchange of hellos and ohells over- calls at that hour Stanley Prewitt said withsomewhat excited voice Ive got it It alarmed me I asked him what he had burglar or appendicitis No I have the snuff He was told to tell me about and tell me slow He said write it down I may forget it before morning This was the message The American Tobacco Company can make snuffand take snuff if they please but we want them to understand that the Burley Tobacco Society is not to be sneezed at What else said I That exhausts that sub ject Cannot Repeat Language Then in language I will not re peat and which would not have been permitted over the phone except he is President of the company he was attempting to describe how many different kinds of an idiot a man was who did not know that a subject was assigned as a toast hi order that you could talk about something else Turned to Bible my mind reverted to the Scriptures but every text that I could recall read so much like a re flection on you gentlemen I though it would come better from your preacher than your host My mind was directed to a particular book in the Bible by reason of a story told a short time since In that part o our country where there are a great many tobacco tenants and where the crop has never failed a gentle man built a modest structure for joint use as a school house and nondenominational church They have no paid minister and President Taylor of the Kentucky Wesleya- College is glad to contribute one of his two year olds without mone and without price for the practice On this occasion one of the tenants had a kinsman frpm the mountains who was a preacher and the colleg- entry was asked to sidestep if tha- is t the proper way for a preacher t vacate the pulpit and give the vis iting pilgrim a chance The visiting parson after the preliminaries were over took as his texts a verse from piecesalam slive thirteen displaced parson worried all throng- the h sermon trying to determine whey- he could find that book in the Bible The preacher was astonished that he did not know where it was to b found but noT more than the other man when he turned to the thirteenth verse of Psalm PIT Has Trust of His Own In looking for the 104th psalm I came across this passage Put not your trust in Princes It occurred to me that it was written under the old dispensation and served as a suf ficient warning in that day fitted the time and the dignataries then when they went no lower in the scale but that if the old psalmist were per mitted to amend and revise to sui modern conditions it would read something like this Put not your trust in Princes neither put you trust inJDukes especially when Duk- has a trust ofhis own Marketing Princes x On the other side of the water they have taken the psalmist at his word and have even gone further than he advised They have not only not put their trust in princes but have pu their princes in a trust and an marketing them in America to trust magnates at prices far in excess o their value While this may be re tribution still I am opposed to it and am in favor of a prohibitory import duty to protect the American heiress
