the oflieers of tfie association were
At the first session an executive
committee was appointed eonslsting
of Prof. Culbertson, Lincoln; Mr'.
IlilJebiaud, Sarpy Co.; Otto My re,
Bellevue. Keports were given by
Messrs. W. Stalley,of Orand Island;
Dodder, of AVahoo;"Kn forth, A. J.
McCane, T. L. VauDoren. Iiouse, of
Omaha; Ilollingsworth, of Milford,
and Prof. Culbertson and others, giv-
in rise to interestiong discussion.
The Treasurer's report gave a balance
on hand of S'.'.OO. Tlie coiuuiittee on
revision of constitution and by-laws
asked to be relieved and a new com
mittee was appointed consisting of
Messrs. My re. Culbertson and Ililde
brand. Tlie subject for the evening
session was decided by a question box
to be left open until 7 p. m. Messrs.
15. B. Kennedy, of Omaha, and 1. II.
1 Wheeler, of Plattsmouth. were made
-At 7 p. m. the President's address
was read, after which, on morion of
Prof. Culbertson, a committee of three
consisting of Messrs. Treiters, Culbert
son and Col well was appointed to con
sider the proposition in the address.
Remarks followed by Prof. Culbertson
on the wintering of bees ; he put hay
all over the hives, had fust taken oil
honey board, put on one thickness of
sheeting and filled the cap with dry
cobs; did . not open until spring;
thought it a good plan to punch holes
in upper pait of brood combs; the re
quisites for successful wintering were
first, an even temperature as near 40
as possible, second, ventilation by a
hole 7 of an inch above, and the en
trance. Mr. lleuse though the Inst
thing was to. have plenty of young
bees to begin winter with; attained by
stimulating in fall; bees should be
confined "on ns few combs as they
could cover; thought a chaff box suf
ficient ventilation; punched holes in
brood frames so bees could go from
onij frame to another; would rather
not have sun shine on hives from fall
till spring. Mr. Treiter s experience
had been bad, took five colonies on
shares, lost them all first winter. Mr.
VanDoren thought successful winter
ing of bees required application of
natural laws, pure, dry air, ventilation
and food. Mr. Colwell thought the
discussion of the subject of keeping
bees in winter occupied more time in
association and was farther from be
ing settled than any other; what suc
ceeded one winter failed another; a
good cellar was the best place to keep
them, a poor cellar the bst to kill
them.. Mr. Ilawley. favored the cel
lar method of wintering them. Had
nevt r lost over.lo ;er cent.; his cellar
about 7 feet deep, one chimney and
two windows for ventilation. . Ad
Jan. i:th the election of. officers
took place, the present incumbents
being in each case re-elected. T.
VanDoren, president, Omaha; S." I...
Thomas, riattsmouth, vice president;
J.' M. Ilawley, Lincoln, secretary ;
irank Colwell, JJellevue, treasurer.
The reyised constitution and by-laws
were then read ; oa motion the secre
tary instructed to copy them into the
Discussion of the subject of bee pas
turage followed; buckwheat, rape,
motherwort, matrimony vine, wild
cucumber and raslerry were all spo
ken of highly, also spider plant and
In the'afternoon session the various
breeds were discussed as well as many
other matters of interest. A collec
tion was taken up for T I. Lang
stroth, who after spendiig his life in
advancing apiculture was.left at eigh
ty penniless by litigation concerning
his patents, and all parties so wishing
were invited to take apiary pro
ducts to next state fair, after ex
hibition to be sold and the proceeds to
be sent to Mr. Lanstroth A vote of
thanks was tendered the people of
Ashland for their hospitality and free
use of hall, also to the I. & M. and U.
P. Roads for liberal reduction of fares.
The executive committee were in
structed to confer with the State
Board of . Agriculture concerning a
mode of distributing premiums that
would result in better satisfaction to
The meeting was the best, altogeth

The Literary "Rebellion."
Mr. John B. Alden, who organized
the "Literary Re volution." which has
given the people the best of books at
such wonderfully low prices, does not
2ive up the liyht with the failure of
The American Book Exchange,"
which' failure, he claims, was in no
respect tlie result of selling books too
cheaply, but was caused by the combi
nation of publishers and booksellers
against the enterprise; infamous and
baseless slander being scattered broad
cast culminated in a "panic among
the creditors of the institution, caus
ing a "run" which resulted in the fail
ure of the company, just as it has
often caused the failure of banks or
other institutions perfectly solvent
uuder ordinary conditions. lie and
other friends of the enterprise have
organized ."The Useful Knowledge
Publishing Company," and a literary
Rebellion which proposes to carry on
the fight. The first work published by
the new company is a beautiful edi
tion of Macaulay's "Life of Frederick
the lireat," which they sell lor the
marvellously low price of 20 cents,
neatly bound in sloth. The company
proposes to begin immediately the
publication of a series of cyclopaedias
one of history, one of biography, one
of science, one of choice prose litera
ture, one of poetry, and one of relig
ious literature -each of which cyclo
pedias will be in several large octavo
volumes, of over lOoO pages each, at
the price of S1.2o per volume, in cloth
binding, and will also be published in
numbers, at only two cents per num
ber, being considerably below even the
"revolution" prices! They will send
specimen pages and catalogues free,
and friends of choice literature at low
prices will be sure to shower them
with postal cards, at least. Address

Literature fok Boys. The . old
fashioned stories which the unhappy
boys of the last generation read have
been succeeded by the manly and fas
cinating criminal novel. In the old
storv-books it was assumed that truth
fulness, honesty, and obedience to pa
rents were virtues, and that the Chris
tian religion was not wholly devoid of
merit, if these views were not di
rectly taught in the juvenile literature
of our fathers, at all events they were
never directly or indirectly attacked.
Boys could learn nothing from their
story-books except preposterous plati
tudes nothing that was of an7 prac
tical use, or that tended to develop in
them manly and brilliant traits. Xo
such complaint can be made of the
dime and half-dime novels of the
criminal school which are now read
oy all our ooys, either openly or sec
retly. In these delightful stories new
forms of profaiiity and slang "are
taught in the most effective way. The
pleasures of bmglary ami highway
robberv, the manliness of gambling and
fighting, and the haroism of successful
lying, are set forth in what is regarded
by youthful readers as glowing elo
quence; while the great truths that all
parents are tyrants, that all religious
people ure hypocrites, and that disobe
dience to fathers and teachers is bedi
ence to the nobler instincts of juvenile
nature, are sedulously taught. Such
stories as these develop all' that is
manly and lawless- iu our boys, and
teach them lessons that e.n not fail to
be of immense service to 'them in
whatever criminal career they may
adopt. . -
Theie are a few old-fashioned peo
ple who denounce the new juvenile
literature in unsparing terms; but
that nearly all fathers approve of it is
self-evident. They know that -their
boys are. reading novels Illustrative of
the excellence of crime, but they
make no effort to suppress that
sort of literature, as they certain
ly would do did they disapprove of it.
Nothing would be simpler than to
drive those novels out of existence.
All that it would bo neeessary to do
would be to "Boycott the news-dealers
who kr-ep them for sale. The
truth evidently is that fathers either
uo not, care wnai ineir boys read, or
that they have no f;iult to find with
Jack Ilarkaway and the Boy Burgling.
Jtcannote that rfspectable genth-
men who dislike crime, profanity, and
vulgarity willfully refuse to know
what th; ir bovs are reading, or weakly
fhope that by some happy chance their
reading will do them no harm. W.

How Indians Return Calls.
A parly of Sioux In. Hans were guests
at a leading Milwaul oo. hotel, and tho
iadios had a great deal of amusement
studying tlieir customs. That is, lliey
all did except one lady. Tho ladies
called upon the Indians, and the savag
es returned the calls almost before tho
la-lics got to their rooms. One of llio
ladies called on a chief and then went
to her room and retired, and pretty
soon there was a knock at her door.and
she found that it was tho chief. Sho
told him to come in the morning. Tho
lady unlocks her door in the morning,
so that tho porter can couio in and
build a liro before she gets up. Sho
heard a knock in the morning, and,
supposing it was tho porter, she said.
"Come in." The door opened, and in
walked Mr. Indian. Sho took one
look, and pulled tho bed-clot lies over
her head. - He sat down on the side of
the bed, and said: "IIowP" Well, she
didn't know "How" from Adam. Sho
said lo him, in the best Sioux that sho
could command, "Please, good Mr. In
dian, go away until I get up;" but ho
didn't seem to bo in a hurry. Ho
picked up pieces of her wearing appar
el from the lloor, different ankles that
ho didn't seem to know anything about
where they were worn, and made com
ments on them iu the Sioux tongue.
The stockings seemed to paralyze his
untutored mind the most. They were
those long, 90-degrce in the shado
stockings, and they wero too much for
his feeble intellect. Ho hold them up
by the toes and said "Ugh!" The lady
trembled and wished ho would go
awaj-. He seemed to take great delight
in examining tlie hair on the bureau,
and looking at the lady a3 much as to
say, "Poor girl, some hostile tiibe has
mado war on the pale face and takun
many scalps." Finally, she happened
to think of the bell, and she rang it its
though the house was on lire, and pret
ty soon tho porter came and invited tlie
Indian to go down stairs find take a
drink. The lady locked that !oor loo
quick, and sho will never h ave it open
again when there are Indians in town.
She says her hair on the bureau fair
ly turned gray from fright.
What They Tat iu Africa.
An African correspondent of J''ood
and Health, speaking of tho habils of
the people and incidents, says:
Of course hunter's food, such as ele
phant loot, uullalo liump, sea cow,
giraffe, and the hundreds of different
kinds of deer that abound in various
parts of the country are all more or
less good eating, especially when you
have a good supply of Danu Nature's
sauce, hunger, on hand. I also found
the coney or rock rabbit a fair dish, al
though too much liko a large rat to
look pleasant on the table. The natives
of tho country arc not, as a rule, reat
meat eaters, living generally on corn
(called there mealies), milk, pumpkins,
and a sort of sugar cane, now ami then
gong iu for a feast of meat. I have
often considered whether to this way of
living may be ascribed tho really won

In the Zulu war I saw four persons
wounded in the legs with bullets, one
of them especially having received a
bullet just below the knee, smashing
all the bonesi and leaving a hole that
3u could see through. Tho doctors
said the only hope for any of them was
amputation. This they refused t ) allow,
and they would do nothing but four

Susceptible youths generally make
fools of themselves when lhey wax too
sweet in girls' society. An Ohio mer
chant says that when he was about
seventeen years old l.e made a trip to
Cleveland "in the old-fashioned stage
coach, with its spanking four horses.
At Mount Vernon, about four P. M., a
pretty girl got Into the coach. She sat
in the back seal, next to an chicly,
farmer-like-Iookiiig man. I was on the
middle seat immediately in front of
her. L soon struck tip a pleasant dint
with her. She was a c'larming talker,
and almost as brilliant as she was pret
ty. It loolced as if we were mutually
pleased. When darkness c:imo, I con
cluded there would be no harm in giv
ing her hand a gentle squ e.e.
I reached behind ami got hold of the
hand. I was a little startled at t' e
hardness, .but it returned a viee-'ike
pressure. , I squeezed a-rain, nnd it
squeezed back. A sense of dis:ippoiiil
ment would steal over me when in my
mind I would contrast - the seeming
toughness of her hand with the tender
ness ami sweetne-s of her voic. The
contact did not seem lo arlerializo my
blood quite up to the point of -exhilaration.
At last she reached her destina
tion, and left the coach. After we had
started again, that old man who sat be
side her addressed me:
"Young man, do you feel ail right?

paw for the last five miles; hope you
