NOVICE. To those who care to know how he is getting along, at this 17th of April 1874, with his “tin corners” “.

* pillow cases "tea kettles, " "manure heaps" etc., he would say with about his usual average of successes and reverses.

In the first place he has succeeded in losing about one half of his bees'in wintering, (* tinkered 'em to death ". P. G." says,) and probably would have gone wild on a project for building a Green House, to be independent of the weather, and to be enabled to build up all strong before the honey harvest, were he not almost prevented from thinking about the matter, by the number of orders received daily for Extractors, Hives, Frames, &c.

He has succeeded in making a remarkably neat, light, Extractor, entirely of tin, cast iron. and steel, and for the sake of encouraging a Standard sized frame and hive, he offers it for $9.00, then the dimensions are for a frame just 1874 wide, by 114 deep outside measure; but where specially adapted to any other sized frame $10.00.

Our Metal Corners are better made, and the inachinery for making them has been much improved, as have also the frames and hives. Novice seriously began to fear in fact, that his reputation would suffer, it more care were not taken in the make of some of our wares, than what has been done in some cases heretofore; and we hope no one will feel backward in complaining if they feel so disposed. Please bear in mind:

We always consider it an'especial favor to have customers inform us by postal card whether goods are satisfactory; whether our mode of packing is efficient; time taken in transit; whether Express or Freight charges were reasonable, etc., etc.

Respectfully, A. I. ROOT & CO. Medina, 0.

German Bee-Sting Cure To the Bee Fraternity:

From time immemorial, since man has coveted the sweet nectar gathered and stored by the busy bee, the bee-keeper has feared the poisonous effects resulting from the sting of the honey bee, while many have been deterred from entering the apicultural arena, not a few have abandoned the pursuit for a like cause, while the world at large are cognizant of the fact that the virus from a single bee-sting has resulted in death to persons who have been stung. With these facts in view it need hardly be stated that the bee keeper has sought by all means in his benever to discover a remedy for the sting of a

In the language of a recent editorial of the American Bee Journal, “ Any alkali application is good; soda and blue-bags are recommended; a drop of honey, garden soil, spirits of hartshorn, alcohol and tincture of iodine are among the external applications. But, (continues the editor of the American Bee Journal,) we have discarded every other application since becoming acquainted with a German remedy lately introduced. A drop or two will remove all trace and effect of a sting in a very few minutes. It costs brit a trifle per bottle, and a single bottle will last a bee-keeper for a life-time.

With such evidence as this, before the reader, we hardly deem it necessary to say one word further in commendation of this remedy. If you would go among your bees without the fear of being stung, use the German Bee Sting Cure,

This preparation (imparted to the proprietor by a German friend, used by his ancestors for over an hundred years, and now for the first time prepared by scientific chemists,) after having been fully and throughly tested, is introduced to Aptarians to supply a want long felt by the fraternity. Its efficacy is thorough and complete when the directions are complied with.

The German Bee Sting Cure is free from all poison, and may be successfully used for all insect bites. Price $1.00 per bottle. Sent only by Express, MR. S. HAWLEY, Proprietor,
