THE QUEEN BEE.
Bofel , The Qulc
the It tin Foundation, the life And
of m Ul Colon.
A queen two is essential to the colony.
She- is readily picked out, but by a clost
observer by Iter great longth. Sho livei
goncrally for ubout flvo years, but hoi
torm of lifo varies in different individ
uals from two to flvo or six and in rnrt
instances oven to sovon vcars. A queen
is fed with tho daintiest and best all
thiongh her embryo stago, and when
hatched comes out a full queen. If an;
other queon is hatched and sometimes
ono or two more arc, pretty soon after
tho rightful ruler assails tho rival claim
ant in a lifo and death battle, the
"stinger" being plied vigorously II ko n
death dealing sword by both contestants,
whilo tho hivo looks on in inuto interest
to boo tho issue of tho battlo. This is al
most decidod in favor of tho assailant,
Sho is then tho undisputed queon and
is so rogardod. Yet tho great company
of "workers" aro in somo senses tho real
governors, and tho hive is a great social
democracy. If by any miscbanco the
queen is killed, thon the "workers"
who aro undovelopod femalcs-go tc
work to produce a now ono. Tho ecu
thoy soloct for tho trial is attended to
with tho samo care, and tho embryo bet ,
is fed with tho samo soloctcd food, as in
the caso of tho egg that hod produced
tho legitimate queon. It makes a queen,
and she servos in that capacity.
Except in swarming time, the queen
never loaves the hivo, only on the out
occasion of her bridal tour. Selecting
somo ono for her husband, she invite!
him out to go with her and their con
nubial relations aro carried on entirely
while on tho wing in the air liko the
chimney swallow's. The bridegroom
never returns. He drops dead, and tht
queen roturns from hor one and onlj
aerial oxonrsion a fully feoundated bee,
ready to begin her great life work ol
egg laying. Somo days she will lay at
many as 2,000 eggs; in all, about 20,000
In "swarming" n large part of the
whole crowd goes out They leave bo
hind tho remains of the old colony,
whioh had grown too numerous, thru
compelling the "swarming" or Booking,
a new home by a groat part of tho hive.
The queen goes with tho Bwarmors, and
here they follow closely. If sho alights
on a branch or other place, they ull set
tle there, clinging olosoly together in a
great mass, by much the samo method
as a moss of burdock burs will stick to
gether, and the farmer's wifo and "all
bands" used to bang away on tin pans
to govern tho movomonts of the swarm
by fright if possible.
So close docs tho swarm follow the
queen that when once in flying over a
lake the queen bocamo weary and drop
ped into tho water every beo wont down
with hor to doath by drowning. New
BRUSSELS AND TAPESTRY.
The DUTereae Between These Two Kindt
of Carpet Explained.
By placing a brnssels and tapestry
carpet sido by side a clearness and
sharpnoss are noticed about the brnssels
carpet which are absent from the tapes
try. In the latter there is a mistiness
about tho colors, and the pattern lacks
that sharpness and delicacy which char'
acterizo tho form or. This is due to tho
process of manufacture. A brussols is a
yam dyed, and a tapestry may bo de
scribed as a printed fabric, but tho print
ing is dono upon tho yam beforo tho
process of weaving.
Tho wholo method of manufacture is
most ingenious. In tho making of a flvo
frame brussols no fewer than 1,20 cuds
of faco yarns aro required for tho weav
ing of onb picco of standard quality,
each framu consisting of 2G0 bobbins,
and 350 ends only can como to tho face
at oaoh piok of tho pattern. Therefore
1,021 cuds of yarn aro hidden in tho
body of tho fabric Thoro aro many
qualities of tapestry, but in tho produc
tion of the standard quality only 310
ends of faco yarn aro required, instoad
of 1,280, which shows at ouco that tho
brusMjls carpet has the great advantage
of being thicker, softer aud altogether a
more durablo cloth apart from othor ad
vantagos which it possesses. Thoro is a
limitation in tho number of colors used
in a brnssels. Iu tapestry there is no
limit In the brussols the wholo of the
colors used show a moro or less striped
appearance at the back of the fabric.
In a tapestry they do not show at the
back at all. This fact is made use of by
householders in purchasing carpets, this
being about the only way tho average
person can tell tho difforonco between
them. In order to pass off tapestry as
brnssels somo ingenious makers havo
resorted to the striping in a regular
manner of the backs of tho former. The
stripy effect in the latter is broken and
irregular. A casual observation of the
clearly defined character of a brussols
pattern should onablo a buyer to distin
guish between tho two fabrics. Fur
Bhaketpeara and Bacon.
A famous historian well known per
sonally in Boston told the following
tory when he was asked what ho
thought of tho Shakespearo-Bacon con
troversy: "I was once librarian in a
mall town, and it was my custom to
eataloguo books on the real meaning of
Daniol, astrology, modem spiritualism,
etc, under the general bead 'Insane
Literature. ' When any volumo written
in support of the Baconian theory ap
peared, I catalogued it under tho same
bead. "Boston Journal.
Warned In Time.
"William, " said Mrs. Youngwife from
the bead of the stairs to her husband,
who bad come homo at an early hour in
the morning, "thero is somo of my home
made cako in tho pantry, a new kind
that I inado today. I put it whero you
can easily find it."
"All right, dear," responded Mr.
Youngwife "Howoonsidorateofyoul I
might havo oaten some of it without
thinking." And tho grateful husband
mado a supper of cold beef. Philadel
Qulckent Way to Pile Up Wealth
Tlili nailnei Era.
The reason of tho modern differences
in favor of business as an instrument of
money making is not far to peak. It is
tho onormous growth in tho f-calo of ev
erything in which business can bo dona.
Tho enterprise) of a merchant, of n con
tractor, of n initio dealer, oven of a shop
keopor, may now cover the wholo world
and may bo carried on, moreover, main
ly upon credit. It may bo doubted
whether, except in thoso transaction?
which aro called "financial," and whioh
really moan tho taking of heavy bribes
for pecuniary support, any ono transac
tion over yields quito as much as tho
sanio transactions would havo yielded
CO years ago; whether, for t-xatnplo, any
cargo over produces ton for ton an equal
margin of profit, or whether any cus
tomer in a shop pays quito so heavy a
porcentago on tho goods ho buys.
It is tho nmguitudo and multiplica
tion of cargoes which yield fortunes,
the thousands instead of hundreds of
customers whom clover dealers may in
duco to spend monoy. Tho now system
of rapid turnover is, of course precisely
tho samo thing tho dealer selling four
times what ho did and using only tho
samo capital. This advantage of scale is
almost entirely wanting to tho profes
sional man, for tho obvious reason that
ho is hamperod by limitations of time.
Thero are only COO minutes in a hard
worked day, and tho seeker after in
como, bo ho as ablo as ho may or as de
cided or as rapid, must givo somo of
those minutes to each cliout or patient
or contractor with a difficulty to moot
If ho docs not, ho loses custom, and
with custom income rapidly slips away.
There are no doubt favorito lawyers,
doctors and oven engineers whose ad
vico is sought at great oxpenso, when
equally good advico is procurablo much
cheaper, but still tho favorites must give
thoir advico and loso thoir days in doing
it, or they will speedily bo deserted.
Nothing can alter this first law, while
tho exaggeration of professional foes is
kept down in tho caso of solicitors by
positivo statute, in that of doctors by an
etiquette difficult to defino or explain
thero seems to bo no reason why a great
physician should not chargo according
to skill and in that of barristers and
engineers, by a competition, which.
though uovor acknowledged, isnono tho
less real and effective Wo can not see
what is to alter this condition of affairs,
and do not boliuve that, however civi
lization may dovolop itself, professional
skill will over again be tho quickest
road to largo accumulations. Loudon
