honey, while comb-honey supers are set onthe colonies in their place. I do not like thismethod very well, and it necessitates a greatdeal of handling of combs. If increase is wanted, it can be obtainednicely, especially if the swarming seasoncomes some time before the main flow. Aboutten days before you want to make the divi-sion, place a queen-excluder between the twostories. At the end of that time take one ofthe stories (which has not the queen) to anew stand, and give a laying queen or a ripe cell. This will leave the main force on theold stand to begin work in the comb-honeysupers put on in place of the upper storyjust removed. If the division is made earlier,long enough before the honey-flow so thatboth parts of the division can be built up forit, there should be at least two-thirds of thebrood in the story moved to the new stand.A laying queen is to be preferred to giving acell in this case, as the work goes on muchfaster; hence laying queens should be pro-vided for in advance.

QUEEN-REARING. Some Questions Answered Concerning the Age of^Drones; the Two-queen System and Other Matters. BY E. W. ALEXANDER Referring to my article on page 573, lastyear, on rearing queens for early increase,Mr. G. H. Smith, of Australia, has asked meseveral questions by letter, and it may bethat my answers will be interesting to thereaders of Gleanings. He wishes to knowif it is not necessary for the drone to be mucholder than the queen in order that she maybecome fertilized at the proper age. He alsothought that, in so large an apiary as ours,natural swarming must be a serious obstaclein securing a large surplus; and as for twoor more queens to be loose in one colony, hewas of the opinion that it would cause thecolony to swarm as soon as the bees realizedthe presence of more than one queen. In reference to the age of the drones, I willsay that, in natural swarming, we usuallyfind the drone comb of a hive well filled withbrood capped, or about ready to cap, whenthe eggs are laid
