Let us go to thedifferent yards and see. 0. M. P.s combs fill the frames solidfrom top-bar to bottom-bar, and from endto end, and all worker comb—that is, allbut the lower half of one comb in each liive,and that is drone comb, and all the dronebrood is there. Wise Old Man Philetus!His combs are beautifully filled with brood,even regular sheets of it, and only a narrowline of honey and pollen next the toj^-bar. Deducting the half-comb of drone andthe total area used for pollen and honey inthe eight combs, we find that there are about45,000 cells of worker brood. (Not nearlyenough for a good queen and best results,as 0. M. P. has learned, and he is changingto larger hives.) Brock has good combs built on founda-tion in wired frames but the combs do nottouch the bottom-bar, and are rounded off GLKANTNGS IN REK CULTURr,

By measure we find that anarea equal to a frame and a half is thuswasted. In other words, he gives to dronecomb about double the surface given by ().M. P., and loses the area of half a comb byunoccupied space. The amount of honeyand pollen is much the same as in 0. M.P.s, except that the two outer combs areall or nearly all honey and pollen. By measure and estimate we find Brocksten combs when in use have available forworker brood the equivalent of but sevenperfect combs of the 0. M. P. capacity, or47,600 cells. Brock doesnt like the showing, but hasto admit its truth. To make him feel bet-ter we will take him with us to Oppenheim-ers. O.s twelve-frames look immense be-side 0. M. P.s eights, yet there does notseem to be much more hustle, except ofdrones. We open up some hives, and hereis what we find. (Really it is a shame toexpose 0.,

Under ordinary condi-tions it is, perhaps, best to locate the combs of bees close to one side of the hive, and put adivision-board, or follower, next to them on the other side. Gradually, as the bees needmore room, they can be given an extra frame of comb foundation. Watching a nucleus develop into a full-size colony is like watching the development ofa child. And to realize that you have a force of little workers bringing in pollen and nectaris solid comfort; but do not think for a minute that the bees work for nothing and boardthemselves. They need some care. Under certain circumstances it may be necessary evento feed them—but that is another story.
