after day as ihe thrifty farmer dees. -
I cannot admit the correctness cf the
charge that farmers' sons look upon farm
labor.a3 humiliating, and desire to escape
from it to - engage in some one cf the
trades, or professions which he supposes
to be more honorable, and confer better
.titles to respectability. .
The reason why any leave agriculture
to engage in the pursuits of professional,
mercantile or political life, is nM, in my
judgement,-on account of any : supposed
respectability which the Jatter.has over
the former, but because they open avenues
to the more speedy acquisition of wealth,
which is the great - Diana of American
worship. The farmer partakes, doubt
less, of that spirit of enterprise and ad
venture which characterized his Norman
and Anglo-Saxon ancestors, and is not
always proof against the temptation to
engage in those speculations in which, if
successful, vast fortunes are suddenly ac
cumulated. . .
Some, however, leave the farm from
necessity; its moderate size and limited
productions being insufficient toeraplythe
hands and supply the wants of all who
are born upon it. In thai case, the
parents give to that son who seems best
qualified by nature to succeed in the
learned professions the best education
they can afford, and then with a father's
blessing nnd a mother's prayers, he i3 sent
oift to the world to procure, subsistance
and a home, and' if possible to carve a
name that shall be held in respect by his
fellow men, and fill the measure cf
parental pride and expectation.
These are the reasons, and not farm
labor is looked upon with, disg-ust, why
daughter would to carried, and the per
plexed father again resorted, to his friend
Eikewell for advice, under the new dii
culty. Eakewell ' coolly said, hi had
watched hi3 proceedings, and seen their
results ; he must do in this r";3 h3 had
dona before; he must give up another
fourth cf his farm, and 1; ?ep the original
capital and stock. The father seemed
somewhat puzzled, but as the first experi
ment had succeeded, he determined to
try it in thi3 cas also. Last cf-all tha
youngest daughter was to be married, and
in utter despair, tne poor ntner rr ui
another visit to Dishley to es'hia hi3
errhxity. "Well." said Eakewell, ": :
me honestly, whether your income hs
diminished by having reduced your farm
by one-half ?" The father acknowledged
: cr e.
to leave thsir five:
chance for ancihcr
lay i-suinr from tve,
Idays, in which c.-e
has tc:.i known to iz. . : c:i iL t
after the first, and I wcul J net in
least be surprised to team that th3ys
tirr.es must trcm necessity
issue much sooner. My
.. ... ..i
sentm tnese excenticns is inai
! ., or-
he . thought it had not. "Then," said
Eakewell, "you must give up another
fourther of your farm, and keep pur
house and the remaining. 2,50 acre3 for
yourself, and, to tell you the truth, you
will then have just such a farm as your
stock, your capital, and your head are fit
for, and will "be a better and happier man
than ever." Old Bakeweli used to tell
this story with great glee, and declared
his friend left as much slock and capital
upon the 250 acres as he had ever had
upon the one thousand, and, as he be
lieved, made a better income out of it.
This may be a somewhat exaggerated
statement, but cf this I ani sure:, a small,
well-cultivated farm, will make a better
return than a large ill-cultivated one.

Best Time to Drlrc Eecs-
Messrs. Editoss In your issue cf
May 24th, I notice an article headed as
above, over the signature cf R. C, in
which, to my surprise, I perceive that the
writer - and myself differ in opinion in
reference to the best time for driving
bees. ' Now it cannot for a moment be
doubted but that this writer has had every
opportunity for ascertaining the best time
for driving bees, for he states he his had
the Langstroth movable comb hive in' use
for several years. It sometimes so hap
pens, . however, that although a person
may have ever facility for making obser
vations, there is a possibility cf his fa.ll-

quiescj, namely: "It seldom ccejrs that

after the i.rit swarm issues, i:i emerir.

bees in cr near Eahimer : manare their
affairs so dhTerently from thes? ia West

harbor the idea, and therefore most state
that queens do not cn an everz em err:

and also on an average slie dce3 not corn

This is doubtless more fortunate than
otherwise, for those renovating and con
servative elements that give purity
stability and vigor to the institutions of
learning and religion, of law and medi
cine, of trade and commerce; are mainly
drawn from the agricultural portion of
the people; and when the human tide
that rolls in from the farm-houso to
mingle with the streams of professional,
commercial and political life shall cease,
these institutions will have passed their
culminating point, and decay be written

"The tendency of increased education
to produce an increase of manual labor,"
is natural, and in accordance witb the
upward instincts of humanity, for labor
performs iis lowest office when it provides
the means of sustaining physical life, and
only perfectly exhibits the wisdom cf its
Great Ordainer, when it leads to the de
velopment of that intellectual arid mortal
nature, Which constitutes the real of man.
Labor, in and of itself, mere mindleas
toil, such as the horse and the ox perform,
always has been, and always will be, con
sidered degrading, and the ingenuity of
man since his creation has been, and to
the end cf time will be, tasked to soar
abore it, and to live without it.

The following anecdate of Bakeweli
has been told before, but ijever in better
form, than in a lecture by Mr. John
Beasley, just published at London :
The late Mr. Bakeweli, of Dishley.
was not only an eminent agriculturist and
breeder of stock, but a very wise and
shrewd roari, and his neighbors' were in
the habit of resorting to him for counsel
and advise. On one occasion an eld
friend went to pay him a visit, for the
purpose cf explaining to him hi3 position,
and at the same time begging that he
would recommend him what to do. He
had lived all his life upon his own farm
of 1000 acres ; he lived very well, but he
had never saved a shilling.' He had
three daughters, and the eldest was about
to be married ; he highly approved of the
match, but the intended husband expected
some portion, and he had nothing to give
him. Should he mortgage his estate, or
what should he do ? Mr. Eakewell
begged of him to spend the night with
him, and promised, the next morning to
give him the result of his cogitations.
Accordingly, the next morning, when
they met at breakfast, Eakewell said, "I
have made up my mind what you ought
to do ; give your son-in-law orie-fourth cf
the farm, keep the remaining three
fourth with it. Do it better than you
have hitherto done, and your income will
In rather increased than : diminished."
His friend followed his advice ; but at
the end cf two cr three years, another

.faciiiti-s - ith my contemporary for ascer
taining facts in reference to the best time
for driving bees; and hence, after con
siderable experience in driving, and much
careful "reflection," I feel compelled to
restate, that the 2st or 22J day after the
issue of ihe frst swarm is ihe best" time io
secure ihe least possible waste.
The above may be regarded as a gene
ral rule, in giving which I make no ex
ceptions,, as exceptions tend to confuse
rather than be of any practical benefit to
the inexperienced. There are, however,
two exceptions, and as some inquisitive
yankee may wish to know what they are,
1 willingly give them, together with a few
remarks on each, so that whenever any
bee-keeper deems it to his advantage to
profit by them, he can do so: The first
of which that I shall notice is that ivhen
the queen dies in the latter part cf spring
from oi l age the second, when the first
swarm is retarded from issuing by foul
weather. In the former case, if then
queen die3 late in spring, leaving pleniy
of eggs deposited in worker comb, the
bees seeming to possess an instinctive
fore-knowledge of the fact; frequently
make the same pf eparaticrii for fearing
queens as for natural swarming, evident
ly for. the purpose of replacing her loss,
for they are seldom in a proper condition
for s. vanning when thus engaged in rear
ing queens. Queen3 thus reared and
also those feared artificially, sometimes
hatch within only a few hours, cr minutes
even, cf each ether. I am convinced of
this latter fact from observations in my
own apiary, and also from the following
A few weeks since, while cri ri, visit to
Mr. Parson's apiary of Ligurianbees, at
Flushing. Long Island, Mr.-Langstroth
and myself early one evening found in a
nucleus engaged in raising Italian or
Ligurian queens, one just emerged, which
by the way, was the first hatched queen
of this well know importation. As there
were two more queens nearly ready to
emerge," we took away the hatched queen
from the nucleus, so that the others would
not be destroyed. . Early the next morn
ing the nucleus was re-examined, and
there was found another hatched cueen
the other in the cell ia th'3 meantime
was destroyed. There - is no reason to
doubt but this last cueen hatched within
a very short tima after the first rorhaps
not to exceed two tours. Now I tnd that
bee3 occasionally act very singularly in
deed, especially whenecg3ged inrearis''
queens, to replace the loss cf the eld
one. I remember one instance, last
season, of the first hatched queen leaving
the hive accompanied by p. greater cr
less quantity cf bees, when in reality the
the colony was not in a proper condition
for sparing a swarm. . Whether in this
case the queen issued for the purpose cf
impregnation, or to accompany tne swarm,
I am not prepared to state. Now I ven
ture .to predict that either thii wis ae
tually the casa with the colony spoken cf
by R. C; or as the season in cr near
Baltimore is considerably earlier than ia
Western New York, it may possibly be
long to the latter "exception," which i3
a3 follows: Oa account cf excessive bad
weather, first orrarms are c-uita rciueiint
that nothing has been said concerning the
issuing of second swarms, which would
delay the laying cf the remaining queen
nearly three days, and therefore r-o er:r;3
would be deposited until the l$th, and" by
the 21st only a few eggs would bs hatched.
To conclude, I would say that as it requires
21 days fcr eggs laid in worker cells to
produce bees, and as seven day 3 is re
quired after the first swarm issues lefcre
there is a hatched queen, it is obvious
that the 14th day i3 the test time to drive
the bees to save the maturing breed, in
stead of the "tenth." This applies to
the first "exceptions." As the queen in
the second "exception" issues three days
before the first emerges from h'er cell,
the lGth or 17th day is the best 'time. I
"doubt not" that R. C, "upon further re
flection or examination, will icclir.? to"
the opinions herein set forth. ' ' ,
