One might infer by the haste with
which some of our friends rush into the
market with their hone' that it was a
perishable article, or that it was a mat
ter of life or death that their honey be
disposed of at once. Many, arain, have
an idea that b getting in a little ahad
of their neighbor they will secure bet
ter prccs and quicker sales. The
facts in the case are directly the reverse,
lint very little honey is consumed until
the cool weather comes. Customers
will buy a taste of new honey and there
they stop, and arc satistied, until tho
berry, fruit and vegetable crops are out
-of they way- Then we may expect a
good sale for our honey.
For the most satisfactory results in
disposing -of -our honey crop, the home
market should lirst be taken into con
sideration, especially where the crop to
lie disponed of is not very large.
Honey, like all other commodities,
loses in price to the producer the farther
from home it goes to lind a consumer.
.Large crops, -of course, must seek large
markets. At the present we are con
sidering only those who have n few
hundred pounds to dispose of. Th -re
is scarcely a family in the land but can
be induced to purchase a few pounds of
honey, if oilbrcd to them in the right

distiuct'on -hould be made by dealers
in the pric of large and small QiX as
well as between those that are fresh and
those that aie stale or preserved by tho
use of Uicinicals. There is now
no indiiivmenl for farmers to
produce very large eggs. Small
eggs bnng as much as tiioe
that are of extraordinary size. In
California eggs, like most other ar
ticles of tood, are sold by weight and
not by number. Th's method of sell

daces. It would encourage f:u-mers to
iccp the breeds of hens that lay the

by nunilwr. but the dealer sorts tl.em

The improvements in fowls kept on
farms l not keep pace with the im
provements in horses, cattle, sheep and
pigs. .Most farmers are ready to ex
press their contempt for chicken

the Freed of turkeys, geese, ducks and
chickens as it does to improve any
kind of domesticated an.mals Tho
cost of keeping poor fowls is as great

of; introducing pure-bred fowls of any
