HOW TO REMOVE SURPLUS HONEY
In the good old days of long ago it
I nas somewhat of a feat to get the honey
away from tha grasp of the business-
like honey bees, who vigorously resented
nny effort to remove their hoard from
out the hive, says a contemporary.
Sometimes the effort was in vain, for
the bees came off more than conquerors
and the beekeeper had to acknowledge
a most ignominus defeat, and as a mat-
ter of fact the ta.sk of "robbing" the
hies was regarded In the light of a battle
royal. Anyone living on the farm thirty
or forty years ago will understand.
All this has been changed, however,
and taking of a crop of honey has no
more'excitement to It than a Quaker
prayer meeting. Thlnps have changed
for the better, more especially n.s re-
gards modern hives, which are now con-
structed with scientific, accumcy and
precision, so that the work of honey re-
moval is rather in the nature of pleas-
ure than a duty. As regards easy und
pleasant removal of surplus honey, the
question really begins with the buying
of the hives. There are hives and hives
?ven now, and it Ls easy matter for the
novice to select what is to him the best
Jiive. The personal predilection of the
beekeeper has something to do with It.
for some desire their honey In comb
honey boxes, others in the form of liquid
honpy, and other* again want what is
termed "chunk" honey, which rasembles
the old-fn*xhioned honey of our fathers.
. A good smoker, some bee-escapes, a
veil, wristlets and anklets are well nigh
Indispensable. When smoker is well
Blight a colony is approached from be-
hind and, by bending over, a few puffs
of smoke are put in at the entrance.
Then you use a screw driver to pry off
the roof or - over. Here again It Is time
to use a little smoke to drive the bees
down out of the way for a few minutes.
The super is next pried up from one end
the bee escape pushed in as far as It will
go; then the other end raised and the
escape hoard pushed in all the way.
The idea in this case Is to push in the
bee escape like a drawer. Some lift the
whole super and place the escape under-
neath. The pushing process is letter,
as few bees are killed in the operation
and it gets rather tiresome to be lifting
up supers very often.
Now give the bees a slight whiff of
smoke to drive them back, replace the
• over, then go away and leave the hive
until the following morning, when you I
may come and remove the honey at your
convenience, as the bees have gone down
through the bee escape, which lets them
g<> downstairs, but not upstairs. If you
do this nicely and neatly you need not
suffer a single sting, even if you own
thirty or forty colonies.
Some prefer, however, to remove the
honey at one operation and make one
Job and be finished with It. In this
event two persons can work much better
than one. One Ls required to operate
the smoker, and another to brush the
bees from off the combs, or better still,
to shake them off by a sudden jerk.
Some think this is a faster method than
by the bee escape, but that is question-
able. and it certainly angers the bo* s
very much to brush them unceremonious-
ly off the somhs they love w,.|]
Also they remember It for some time
and feel very "testy" over it.

orchards must be fed
Many orchard-soils are so poor that
comparatively little plant food can be
made available even by the most skill-
ful cultivation. In cases of this kind
some positive addition of plant food must
be made to the soil. How ls the best
way to procure this plant food.
First, farm manure always stands at
the front on account of being easily se-
cured at little or no cost.
Rut farm manures are not an evenly
balanced food for fruit trees. They are
too rich in nitrogen for the mineral ele-
ments that they contain, hence should al- I
be used in nmall quantities and !f
possible should be well rotted before they
are used, a« well rotted manures are less
liable to damage the trees by promoting
too rank a growth of tender wood.
Nitrogen can be secured easily by other |
means than by buying it. The sowing of I
clover or of vetches or of other legumin-
ous plahts will furnish not only an
abundance of nitrogen all the trees should
have, but will bring up much mineral
matter from the soil which otherwise
would not have been used; and this min-
eral matter when given by the plant will
form soluble food, of which the trees can
The fertility of the orchard does not
play as important a part when the
weather is dry as does the amount of wa-
ter which is present in the soil. So the
question of fertilizing the trees can not
be treated without touching upon the
water that Is contained In the soil.
On soils that are not well udapted to
ie conservation of water the trees
should be set farther apart and the soil
between kept moist by frequent culti-
vation. thus forming a dust mulch, or
else shaded by some form of cover crop.
This cover erop should be of such a '
nature that it will not die until after
the danger of dry weather is past. M
As water is Hi,, means of circulation
of plants as well as of animals, therefore
it Is of prime importance that water he
present In th<- soil, In order that the plant
food in the soil may be taken up by the
Many orchards have sufficient available
plant food but lack water at that critical,
period while the tree Is fruit making.
f a soil lacks water some form of fertil-
ize are a positive detriment if they are
present In abundance.
The chief elements of success In pre-
paring an orchard soil for the best re-
sults mnv be summed up a* follows:
Removing surplus water from the soil.
The conservation of plenty of moisture.
