A great drawback to bee-keeping la
the fear of the bee's sting bv persons not
familiar with this industry." Many farm-
ere wonld keep a few hives, enough to
furnish honey for their own tables, at
. least, if they only knew Just how to con
r'trol the bees.
Bees retaliate injuries and interrup
tions by an attack and sting, hence
everybody who is called upon to make
a near approach should understand the
things that anjrer these insects. All
quick motions are ottensive to tbem, . teaspoonful soda dissolved in threo
uch as running, striking and tho like, i fourths cap of milk, all kinds spice,
eafe, for he moves in and about the hives
with slow, cautious step.
A sudden jar, sneh as may be mado
by carelessly moving the hive, is re
sented bv the bees and usually the in
stant a hive is touched they are on the
alert and ready to bring down their
stings npjn head or face. In adjusting
the box and frames bees are liable to be
crushed and otherwise injured. Their
surviving comrades appear to remember
this ana as soon as an opportunity oc
curs mako an attack.
Bees aLo appear to become irritated
by the breathing of a parson into the
hive or among a cluster of them, espe
cially if the person uses liquor or to
bacco. Bees do not make an attack
while in search of honey or on their
return uutil they havo entered the hive.
It is in the hire and its immediate vi
cinity that they manifest this irascible
Bees do not always give warning be
fore making an attack. On the contrary
tho majority of attacks arc made with
'out the least intimation having been
There is no doubt but that a timid
person who shows fejir by dodging and
evading every bee tfeat flies near is more
liable to be assailed than one who is
quite fearless. As interest dispels fear,
the enthusiast makes the most success
ful bee-keeper. When one has not
sufficient confidence to walk boldly in
and out among the hives it is wise to
use some means of protection to insure
con iidence. Tin's protection Ls especially
necessary when handling hybrids.
Long rubber gloves and over-sleeves
of cotton cloth, held firmly in place by
an elastic on each end, will protect
hands and wrists. Bee veils, to guard
the face, are made of mosquito netting,
tarlatan or laoe. A veil recommended
byQuimby and adopted by many bee
growers consists of a piece of netting
a yard and a quarter by three-quarters
of a yard sewed together, with an elastio
in one end, to be adjusted over the hat

' Smoke is the controlling agent uni
versally employed in the apiary. It
has a stupefying effect upon the bees
which enables tho bee-keepers to handle
them without fear. The burning of
partially decayed wood, without a
blaze, is now employed in place of to
baooo, for smoking bees. Progressive
apiarians for the most part, use onevof
the many patent 6mokers on the mar
ket. Thege diner in some minor details
of construction, bid, are based on the
same essential principle, nearly all
having adopted the upright bellows and
To operate the smoker the tapering
tart of the tube is removed, a piece of
ight decayed wood put in and the tap
ering part replaced. The bellows is
worked with oue hand, directing the
.smoke to any part desired. By a judi
cious use of smoke at the right moment
the bees1 combativVuess is subdued and
their anger turned into submission.
Thfeir impulse is to fill themselves with
honey, after which they are more peace
Able." Various remedies are employed for
.stings. External applications of am
Jnonia, soda, or salt and soda mixed
.and hlightly moistened are perhaps as
efficient as anything. Whether any
remedy is employed or not, it is neces
.sary that tho sting be removed as soon
as possible. It may often boscrapod
off with a knife-blade and the part
squeezed a little to force the poison out.
Care should be taken insreraovingthe
sting not to force any more of the poison
contained in the sac attached to the
sting in the wound. N. T. World.
Deea LlgMnln? Strike the Find
It has been often said by the so-called
wise old "Say So's" in this locality that
the lightning never strikes a pine tree;
but the fact was very conclusively de
monstrated to the contrary to-day at
this place Mr. James Fonwick's. Mr.
Tcnwick's place is the one adjoining
that of Admiral Leo's. Just after one
o'clock p. m., the storm passed directly
over Mr. F.'s house from the northeast,
and soon after a vivid flash ef lightning
came, which struck two pine trees only
'ten or twelve feot from his house. A
part of he electricity passed down the
trees into the groaad, tearing off great
strips of bark and cutting a groove into
the trees for some distance fust before
it passed off into tho ground. The rest
of it followed a wire clothes-line at
tached to one of the trees to the other
end of the wire and then passed down a
cedarpost to which the wire was at
tached into the ground. It split the
post the whole .length and broke oft
large pieces from it. It was a very
narrow escape for the house, for if the
cloud had discharged a moment sooner
It would certainly have hit the house,
and perhaps have done a great deal of
damage. There are quite a number of
Washington people spending the sum
mer here, and all who were at the house
were very much alarmed, and also the
animals. The horses in the stable near
tried to break away and rnn, the flash
was so vivid and the report so loud.

A temporary shade might be made by

Buckwheat is well adapted to sub
dning rough, weedy land and with little
labor. Oxeyed daisies and even quack
grass will succumb to it if sown three
or four years in succession. Tho seed
must not be sown too thickly as the
plants require room to branch out.
It Is por economy to burn straw.
There aro jo many useful purposes for
straw that the wise farmer will scarce
ly need to have recourse to fire to get
rid of it. It makes an excellent mulch
for all kinds of fruit trees and berry
vines. Use it for bedding and by fre
quent changing increase the compost
heap. Spread it on dry kmlis and
places in meadows and pastures where
the grass has uurnea or aiea out. jx.

water and pounded ice to give it the
right flavor, and sweeten to taste.
Boiling hot water draws the oil out of
the lemon peel, and gives it a highei

will make the lemonade more cooling

Most everybody knows that this is t
bony excrescence or hard swelling or
the inside of a horse's hock. Although
we have, through theso columns, often
stated that, generally, it is an incurable
ailment, so far at least as the remova,1
of the bony deposit is concerned, to-1
gether with more or less stiffness of tb
joint, still the request comes for not
only a sure and permanent cure, but
also for the entire removal of the un
sightly and characteristic bony pro
truberancs. ; Spavin assumes various aspects and
possesses various virulence, from a slight
and easily "curable" damage to an m
veterato .blemish or incurablo disease.
It is induced by kicks, bruises, leaping,
overstraining, and rapid galloping, but
especially by the overworking of a young
horse before its limbs have sufficient
strength, and by faulty and uneven shoe
ing. A spavin from a kick or blow i
usually a mere bruise on tho bone,
or on tho membrane which covers
it, and can easily bo cured; a
spavin on the lowest part of the
hock is of less consequence than one
between the small bones of the hock
joint; a spavin near the edge of the
limb is not so bad, because it does not
so much affect the bending of the hock,
j&s one towards the middle; andaspavin
of any kind in a colt or younjj horse is
less inveterate than a spavin of the same
kind in a fully matured horse, and very
much less so than one in a decidedly
In the earlier stages of spavin, a do
greo of lameness js always induced
and this is sometimes sograt as to ren
der the animal apparently all but worth
less; but in tho maturer stages, when
the membrane of the bone becomes ac
commodated to the excrescence, the
lameness decreases and often total h
disappears. A spavined horse U usually
quite able for slow work, and may not
only take part in most of the labor on
tho farm, but derive benefit from the
laborious but steady exercise of his
limbs. A farmer will generally pro
cure such an animal at a comparatively
low price and maj- find him an excel
lent bargain. Tho slow, regular and
heavy action of the limbs in plow-draft
raises the absorbent system to vigorous
action and incites it to withdraw a por
tion Of the bony matter which forms the
excrescence, yet without cither renew
ing the local irritation or inflammation;
and therefore achieves an important
alleviation of tho disorder.
The proper medical application for
any ordinary bone spavin is a blister.
The hair covering the affected part
should be cot close to the skin; blister
ing ointment ought, in the morning, to
be spread thickly over the part, and in
the evening a coat of hogs' lard may
be spread over this, and be repeated
once daily, until the scab which forma
after the blistering has puelod off.
which generally occurs within ten to
twelve days. A second application may
then be made, and this is usually more
effective than the first, and, in the case
of colts or young horses, often completes
the cure. In very bad cases so many
as six or seven successive applications
of blister may be necessary, and they
are not at all likely to aggravate dis
ease or occasion any other blemish, but
on tho other hand, will generally effect
a cure; yet, after the second time they
must not be repeated with greater ra
pidity than at intervals of fourteen oi
even twenty-one days. A spavin which
involves the joint surfaces of the small
bones, and any ordinary spavin in an old
animal may be regarded as incura
ble. Blistering, at at events, will not
subdue such cases, and either the use of
hot iron or some more powerful agent
than ordinary Spanish fly blister is the
only probable remedy, but ought not to
be employed without full consideration
of risks, and may not unlikely destroy
the limb or at least greatly aggravate tbJi
existing lameness. The safest method
in even the worst cases is to give full
trial to blistering, and when this fails
to rest contented with whatever degree
of Amelioration can be obtained from
the slow and steady working of the ani

In baying a silver watch case great care
should be taken to secure one that is solid
silver throughout. The cap of most cheap
silver traces is made of a composition known
as albata, which is a very poor substitute
for silver, as it turns black ia a short time.
The backs of such caus are made much
thinner than those of an all silver case,
being robbed in order to mnhe the cap
thicker and get in as much as possible of
the cheap metal. Another important point
in Ubilver case is the joints or hinges, which
hould be made of gold. Those of most
cheap ca&es are made of silver, which is
not a suitable metal for that purpose. In
a brief period it warps, bends and spreads
npart, allowing the backs to become loose
upon the case and admitting the dust and
dirt that accummulate in the pocket. The
Keystone SilverWatch Cases are only made
with silver caps and gold joints.
