of living belongs to a primitive
race of country folk who dwell re-
mote from cities and have ueither
sufficient intellect nor energy to
tell half the interesting anecdotes
of the cell makers that have be-
come theirs by inheritance and ob-
servation. "Do you know how they train a
queen V asked a bonnetted old
country woman ot me one day as
she changed the position of heri

That's so" she responded
"but they don't go about it in the
same way. Yon see when this hive
gets too full the workiug bees
know that it's time to look about
for another queen. They must have
a new hive and so I put one up for
theui. They understand and go
about training a queen that shall
be royal enough to rule them."
"So they make a robe of honey
"Genuine and put it on the shoulders
of the prettiest girl bee who re
ceives the popular vote?" I sug
"They dou't do any such thing'
with a gesture of disgust. "They
pick out a larva aud begin to feed
It with the queerest food you ever
saw. They get it from certain
flowers and never us it iu the mak
iug of honey comb. Only once do
th0 seek such weetnessand then
'tis: on an occasion like this. They
purine little living germ off to it
self and nourish it on this food
tenders call it the 'royal
lelly. Whenover we seel this
performance going on we know
that very soon the old queen will
be the dowager and that the new
hive is to be occupied. As soon as
the larva reaches its proper
strength it is carried by the bees
to their new home as roler and the
throne and sceptre is given her.
This 'royal jelly' never makes its
appearance again until a like oc
casion calls for it. We call this
feeding the queen.
