Gentlemen :-Last October I purchased three queens of you for my experiments with different queens, and wish to ask you if queens of this season will be of this stock? One of the Queens is the most remarkable queen I ever owned for prolificness, which she transmits to all her daughters. Riddle, Oreg., July 4, 1912.


[blocks in formation]


Gentlemen:-The queen you sent me came in good condition. She was one of the best I have ever bought. I have her introduced and she is doing business as if to the manor born I want another of those beautiful queens as soon as I can possibly get it for making up my fair exhibit. Please send a fine one. Such queens certainly advertise your business. Darlington, Wis., July 31, 1912.


Gentlemen :- I bought a queen of you about 35 years ago, and from her I italianized 1150 colonies of the finest beauties of unusual good qualities. I lived near Milton Center, Ohio, at the time.

Yours truly,
Portales, New Mexico, July

10, 1912.

We usually begin mailing Queens in May, and continue thereafter on the plan of "first come first served." The price of one of our Untested Queens alone is $1.00, or with the old American Bee Journal for one year, both for $1.60. Three Queens (without Bee Journal) would be $2.75, or six for $4.50. Full instructions for introducing are sent with each Queen, being printed on the underside of the address card on the mailing-cage. You cannot do better than to get one or more of our fine

Standard-bred Queens.

This is a special tool invented by a Minnesota bee-keeper, adapted for pry-
ing up supers, and for general hive and other work around the apiary. Made of
malleable iron, 872 inches long. The middle part is 1 1-16 inches wide, and 7-32
thick. The smaller end is 17 inches long, 72 inch wide, and 7-32 thick, ending
like a screwdriver. The larger end is wedge-shaped, having a fairly sharp, semi-
circular edge, making it almost perfect for prying up hive-covers, supers, etc., as
it does not mar the wood. Dr. C. C. Miller, who has used this tool since 1903,
says: “I think as much of the tool as ever.'
