Names of parties who have contracted and still owe, one or more of the physicians bills for services rendered, were handed to the secretary. .A list was made and each physician given a copy. Delinquent pntients will hereafter be required not only to pay the physician in advance . when his services are re quested, but will also have to square up with the other physicians before his call will be answered.- The doctors claim that numerous patients contract a bill with one physician, then take on an' other physician, contract a bill with him, then secure theservices of another and so en. There is some talk of the milkmen and the merchants of town following up thejstep taken by the physicians in establishing a system of credit such as above, as there are numerous people, it is stated, make a practice of "hiuiging up one 'dealer" and then taking on another. This will be an effective remedy for this practice. The Big Reduction Sale at Doutrich & Co. 's closes Tuesday, February 21st. - Doutrich & Co.

Works And is Cared For A Very Interesting Autl Instructive History r Filled With Much Valuable Information - (By Dilman C. Gilhani, Apairist) '''"'..'' ''.'.' v '''''' i To the common observer as' he passes by an apiary during Jhe summer mpntli, he notices, the bees as they pass jVnfl out of their homes, ani know not what is going on inside. He may pause for two or three moments to watch the "busy little bee" and then pass on and forget about them. . "' If you would know that within jtbose hivos there were nurses and architects of great skill, he might , stop ; for a. greater length of time and consider what he perceives. -.Within there are, nurses , feeding young larvae or brood and architects building combs witm the greatest .regularity that, is possible. The comb built for the purpose of raising female or worker bees within,- measure five cells to an inch and that comb in which, male or drone ies'are ,'itehed measures four cells to -an inch, as . the drone bee is larger. iPJ i Before explaining; fag. mk carried on within those homes. I 'believe it- is necessary to give .unto, the.feader an idea of the inside of tfw, modern hive. The up-to-date bee ,i:e'epcr 'ofoday does not bother with throld straw skeep or box hive in which tbef "bees built they1 combs to suit themselves? but uses the modern hive, which, contains' eight or ten frames, according to his desire as to the size of the hive wanted, and in which the- bee3 build their combs, thus allowing ' the npiars't to remove those combs and examine them whenever "nee-essary. ' :- . . ? The tep frame hive is becoming the standard size in width ami -if a bet keeper prefers a smaller Jjrflod nest, he uses a liivq which is not as TUFer instance, what is known as theftlloffman frame, used In t'.n Dovetaile'iRHive, is. a frame .measuring HxO inches, and the Dansienbaker f rnine,. jirii a hive given the Baton name, is IXxxry in.-hca. A ten frame Danzenbaker hire giving about as much room as an eight frame hive containing the Hoffman - frame?. As the top and bottom of all modem hives are loose, the top and bottom of the Danzenbaker hive can be used on tho ten frame Dovetailed Hive, but not on the eight frame hive, thus you see tho advisability of nsing a standard size hive throughout your apiary. : . This part of the hive containing those large frames is known as the brood nest in which the queen lays the eggs, the brood being cared for by the nurs? bees nnd hatched out. A good queci will lay from .2,000 to 3,000 eggs per day, and as it takes 21 days for a worker bee to hatch from the time the egg is laid, you will find from 40,000 to 50,000 brood within those combs, re quiring from eight to ten frames 'to hold -this amount of ,brood and havinjr not more than three or four pounds of honey in the brood nest. The bees not only gather honey bu' also the pollen or yellow dust from th. flowers. The pollen is used in feeding the young and is a necessity. , Sojne times the supply of pollen within a hive is running low and it is necessary fo-the bee-keeper to get a substitute and feed it to the bees. Rye flour has been found to answer the purpose, but is not like that which nature supplies. The surplus honey which is eo -ing in over the amount needed to feed th" young, .the bees are, carrying above iuty the -second and third and sometimes fourth stories of their hives, these stories being known as the supers. The supers may contain 32 small sections, made to contain one pound , of comb honey and to be placed on the market just as it come from ,the hive, or it may contain what is known as the extracting rrame, which honey is extracted and put up in glasses, bottles, etc. ' '. A bee is nbole to carry on a trip from the fields one-twenty-thousandths of a pound of honey, thus requiring 20,000 bees, each making one trip, to bring in a pound of honey. As. the nectar is gathered by the bee with its wonderful and delicate little tongue, it transfers it from the tongue to the "oesophagus" or "gullet" and thenee to the honey stomach. On arrival at the hive it ex pels the contents of the honey-sac into a cell; but during its stay in the honey-sac, tho nectar has undergone a r!iir;e';'' that is, it has been convp'ted. from ane sugar of .nectar into ', the grapc ;sugar of. honey, by the agency of a certain gland.' When the first warm day of . spring appear, the bees come out to enjoy the' sunshine. .Before Jong they- aro out hunting for Wd, and if there . are any flowers .open they are sure jto find them, (To be continued.) ; Remember the last day for the Big Reduction Sale is Tuesday, February 2Iut.
