Please Send Us the Names of your neighbors who keep bees, and we will send them sample copies of the BEE JOURNAL. Then please call upon them and get them to subscribe with you, and secure some of the premiums we offer.


Prof. Cook's Class in apiculture, we are glad to learn, numbers 17. He wrote us thus about it recently:

I bave a class of 17 in apiculture. How is that? Many of them handle bees already like veterans (both gentlemen and ladies), with no hat or gloves, with hands full of bees. I shall make some good bee-keepers here.

A. J. Cook. We think the Professor is meeting with excellent success in getting such a large class interested in handling bees, and learning about their useful habits. It will pay young people to avail themselves of the opportunity now afforded at Claremont, Calif., to obtain apicultural knowledge. Prof. Cook knows the “how” and “why" about bees and several other things.
