A. I. ROOT & CO., Medina, Ohio.

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 power to discover a remedy for the sting of a bee.

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 but a trifle per bottle, (ind 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 or 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 Apiarians 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. WM. S. HAWLEY, Proprietor,
