If It la
The bee Industry of Oklahoma la
still in Ita Infancy; however, it is
rapidly becoming an Important source
of income to many farmers of the
state. Beekeeping is extremely fas-
cinating to those who work with it,
as it furnishes plenty of outdoor exer-
cise as well as intimacy with an Insect
whose activity haa been a subject of
absorbing study from the earliest
times. It has the advantage of being
a recreation which pays its own way
and often produces a profit Bee-
keeping haa fewer drawbacks than
most any other Industry; however, it,
like all others worth following, haa
some, and foul brood is perhaps the
Foul brood is caused by a minute
organism known aa a bacterium, which
multiplies st an enormous rate. Under
favorable conditions of food, moisture
and temperature, a single bscterlum
will give rise to millions of lndlviduala.
WJien conditions are unfavorable for
multiplication the bacteria produce
spores wblch act for the bacteria much
as seeds act for higher plants. When
favorable conditions return, the spores
grow and produce the bacteria again.
American Foul Brood is caused by
a definite bacillus known aa Bacillus
larvae. The adult bees of an Infected
colony are Inactive and do little
towards cleaning out infected material.
The larvae are attacked at about the
time of capping, and most of the cells
containing infected larvae are capped.
When the larvae are first affected
tbey turn to a llgtit chocolate color,
and in the advanced stages of decay
they become darker. As decay pro-
ceeds, these capping* become sunken
and perforated, and as the healthy
brood emerges the comb shows the
scattered cells containing larvae that
have died of the dlseaae still capped.
If a toothpick is inserted into the
decaying mass and withdrawn, the
larval remains adhere to it and are
drawn out Into a threadlike form,
which sometimes extends for several
Inches before breaking. This roplness
Is tbe chief characteristic used by the
beekeeper In dlsgnoslng the disease.
When the larvae dries it form* a tight-
ly adhering brownish scale, which can
best be seen when the comb is held
so that a bright ligjht strikes the
lower side wall. The decaying larvae
have a characteristic odor which re-
semble* heated glue.
The common mean* of disseminat-
ing foul brood is In honey. Bearing
this in mind, certain precautionary
measures should be followed which
will eliminate the chsnces of getting
a colony infected:
1. Prevent robbing.
S. Never feed honey purchased In
8. In Introducing queens, transfer
them to clean cages provided with
candy known to be free from contami-
4. Purchase queens known to be
free from foul brood.
5. Don't buy second-band supplies.
Sometimes a colony wlU get Infected
even when precautions are taken, and
then It bcomes necessary to treat
tbem. In treating a diseased colony,
no effort Is msde to savs the dead or
dying larvae, but the aim Is to destroy
the bacteria. Sometimes a colony Is
reduced to such an extent that It can-
not be saved and muat be burned;
but usually it can be saved. The
shaking method la usually used, wblch
consists In shaking tbe bees Into a
clean hive with frames containing
foundation starters. The Old hive
containing the diseased colony Is liftoff
to one aide and a clean hive set In
Its place. The cover la taken off and
a few frames removed from the middle
of the hive. Tbe nuway Is pot In
front of tbe entrance snd the old
hive Is opened, and the frames moved
one at a time and lowered part way
Into the new hive and by ahaklng the
bees sre dislodged. Tbe frsmes are
then put Into the extra hive body and
Immediately covered to prevent rob-
bing. After all frames are shaken
ths bees remaining on the sides of
the old hive are sbaksn off. After
the bees are la tbe new hive, a queen
or drone trap la placed over the
entrance to prevent tbe colony from
deserting the hive. The hive which
contained tbe dlaeased colony should
be cleaned of all was aad honey and
disinfected by burning oat the inside
with a gasoline Mas tame torch. The
Inside should be charred to a light
Other methods, such aa fsmigatlon
aad the use of Me usapss are mom
mended.—T. E. MeBlrojr, Dept of

Consolidation wlU bring forth better
results for less money than the present
system, because. It will economise ths
time of the teacher, economise build,
lags and equipments and will also
stimulate pupil* to put forth better
efforts through the Influence of classi-
- There will be a saving of money In
the time of the teacher, for a teacher
can Instruct a small well graded class
of eight to twelve puipls pursuing the
same work Just as efficiently aa she
now instructs a class of two to Ave
pupils In the Isolated school. Tims
consolidated doubles or more than
doubles the efficiency of the teaoher;
and observed front another viewpoint
It could be made to save half or more
than half the money now paid for
Consolidation will ultimately save
money In buildings, ground*, equip-
ment and Incidental expenses. With
equal convenlencee for beating, light-
ing, ventilating, sanitation, and
aesthetic surroundings, the consoli-
dated plant Is cheaper than the Iso-
lated school plant If the one room
school appears to be cheaper than the
consolidated building it is only be-
cause tbe one room building lacks
many facilities which It should have
and which should be found In tbe con-
The consolidated building will have
a library, apparatus, msps, charts, mu-
sical instrument equipment for man-
ual training and domestic science and
would save the duplication of all thaae
things in the several isolated schools.
Such equipment Is expenslvs but It
is lndlspenslble for the best school
work. The use of this equipment calls
for extra rooms which rooms would
have to be duplicated In the Isolated
Bxperienoe has demonstrated that
the money thus saved by consolidation
of teaching force and equipment can
usually be made to mors than pay for
the necessary oost of transporting the
pupils to the consolidated schooL
However, the aim should not be simply
to reduce the cost of the school. The
aim should be to make the school more
efficient—to give the child a much bet-
ter equipment for life work. This the
consolidated school can do and will
Tbe consolidated school will offer
the pupil advantages that tbe Isolated
school can never offer, such ss bettet
supervision of work specialisation In
teaching and 'he emulation that cornea
with the larger institution.
Ths consolidated school will have
a good domestic science teacher, man-
ual training teacher, one who can
teach agriculture, one who can teach
penmanship, one music, one srt, one
reading, etc.—such a combination can
not be had for the Isolated school.
Greater Inspiration and Interest al-
ways comes with the larger number
of puplla working together. In the
isolated school the bright pupU Is
likely to be in a class by himself with
no rlvslry to call forth bis best efforts,
and when In a class with a few other
pupils who are not his squal In ability
he Is not stimulated as be would be

dated school. In the ssme way nearly

them to greater exertion. Lacking tbe
rivalry and emulation that would come
with larger number* and more per-
sonal attention many of the pupils in
the country school become indifferent

are doomed to pass a poor Inefficient
No other Investment will pay such
dividends ss money carefully expended
for education. There Is no other polit-
ical or social problem before us todsy
so Important aa tbe problem of giving
a better education to the rising gen-
eration. There Is no other cause that
proposes the highest welfare or strikes
at tbe roots of social Ilia like tbe
cause of education.
The schools of today are good but
not nearly so efficient as they ought
to be. It to possible and Imperative
that we do for the child so much bet-
ter than what we are now doing.
Tbe Isolated country school could
aad should be greatly Improved at
onoe, but It can never do all that tbe
consolidated school should do.
If you will consolldste tbe rural
school, give It more money for more
and better teachers thus enlarge and
enrich the rural life the prosperity
and happiness of tomorrow will bless
you.—J. H. Bowers, Department of
