IJVTRODUCTIOJ^ THE wasps, bees, and ants, as well asthe gall-flies, saw-flies, and a fewother insects, are branches of the samefamily tree, being doubtless all descendedfrom some common ancestralstock that flourished in long-ago geological ages. They are classed by man inwhat he calls the Order Hymen-optera, or Order of Membrane- ^/ ,winged Insects, — a very mis-/nrVleading name, as other insects J are quite as membrane-winged as these.

Budapest, the capital, is the Paris ofOriental Europe—rich commercially throughthe business-like qualities of the Jewish-Hun-garian merchant. And it is in the vicinityof this city at Godolo that the HungarianState School of Apiculture, whence that splen-did system of governmental fostering of bee-keeping is directed, has its location.
