As he does most of the work him-self he says it pays him to have two nucleiin an eight-frame hive, and three or fourLangstroth frames to each nucleus. Thissaves much time and care, as no feeding isrequired. Another big advantage he finds is that theyare better able to put up a fight against rob-bers, especially when he is doing work amongthem after the honey-fiovv has stopped. If arare case of roljlnng does occur he stops itvery quickly )j squirting some kerosene oilabout the hive entrance, with an oil-can, andin a few minutes all is at rest. I was very much amused at the editorsaccount of how Quirin the queen-breeder didhis woik with lightning speed; but after afew days visit with Lockhart I felt that hewas in the same class with (^uirin for work.

And,by the way, this is quite an idea for thosewho have much clipping to do, for the curvedblades of these manicuring scissors make iteasy to clip a queens wing without theslightest danger of crippling her by cuttingoff a leg or other part of her body. Of the many things that interested me, nonedid so much as a careful study of his newrace of bees, the Banats. They appear thusfar to be disinclined to swarm, and it is thehardest thing in the world to get them torear drones. As workers they seem to takefirst rank, and build a beautiful white combsuch as is shown in the illustration. I alsofound them to be practically non-stinging,and as gentle (if not more so) as the Cau-casians, and as I took out comb after combI was amazed at their quietness under ma-nipulation. They are not inclined to buildburr-

(See p. —) The bees seal up thecell with a thin cover of wax, and in about twelve orfourteen days the worker bee comes out of this cell,ready to join in the common work. Drones require afew days longer, the queen bee a few days less. Fromthe laying of the egg it takes 21 days for the ordinarybee to develop, 24 days for the drone, but only 16 daysfor the queen bee. The food for the queen bee larvais much richer; it is especially prepared by the beesand has the name of royal jelly. Instict guides the bees to prepare for the lack offlowers during winter.

This is more thanthe swarm will need, and a part, sometimes the greaterpart, of this quantity can therefore be removed by thebee keeper. If all th
