F. B. ^Paddock, extension apzanst at ..Iowa Instate college" says that il/fhe state should experience a January-thaw, bee- men could well make the first inspection of their' hives then. One way to do this is to walk npEACHERS m u s l t know 'J. everything, ,fron\ stoking fuinaces to bundling Bobby for the safe trip home. 1 - And although times have changed and improvements- ,have~ been made, teachers find their duties just about the same as ever. At the left Mrs. Ruby Bohnsack is stoking the fur- na-ce at Bath No. 1. This is a modern school in practically every respect and has a modern type of coal furnace for heating purposes. But furnaces need stoking just the same--and teacher is the one -who has to do it. At the right Miss R u t h ' Janssen, teacher at Palls No. 7, the only one-room school operating in Falls township, is bundling Bobby Hebel for the trip home. Pupils of the other schools in Falls township are being transported to Rock Falls to attend schooj this winter.

It may be necessary to open the entrance. If blowing into the hives produces no activity, chances are the bees are dead. In that event, take the hive away from those containing live bees. If .entrances of hives- containing dead bees are left open and near active bees, "robber" bees will enter to take the stores Excess flight activity at a colony may spread rapidly through a colony if the bees in the hive died, from disease.. Stores from dead colonies should not - be transferred to other colonies, Paddock emphasizes. Doing so may spread disease. ft cold weather prohibits earlier inspection, the first one should be made at least by early see that there are adequate stores, sufficient population and a queen. To make this inspection, colonies may need to be unwrapped. If this is done early in the season, it will probably be necessary to rewrap them to give spring protection. FOLSOM AUTO CO.
