HAD a case last season that was similar to one mentioned by friend Little, on page 277 of June GLEANINGS. After waiting a week for nature to remove the protruding and dried-up drone organ, I clipped it off, using my finger-nails for nippers or scissors. The queen then commenced, in a day or two, to lay, filled the combs of her nucleus with eggs, and was, apparently, all right, so I sent her to a customer. In two or three weeks I received a card from her purchaser, saying, "One of those half-dozen queens that you sent me does not perform her duty as should a well-behaved queen. She scatters the eggs all over, puts more than one egg into a cell, and sometimes attaches them to the sides of the cell. It is not the work of a fertile worker, as the queen is present, and I have seen her laying." I concluded that it was the queen that I had operated upon, and so I sent another.

SELLING EXTRACTED HONEY.

Nearly all of the honey that I have sold away from home has been sold in Mason's fruit-jars. In packing them for transportation, 1 place an inch of chaff in the bottom of a box, set the jars upon it, and then pack chaff between them. I always carry the honey away myself, and I have broken only one jar, and that was caused by a small knot, from some board, getting into the chaff packing, under the jar. When honey is in the liquid state, it certainly does present a sort of "make-your-mouth-water" appearance

NOTES FROM THE BANNER APIARY. when put up in glass; but after it candies it looks well, one groceryman remarked, like lard. If I should ever have honey enough so it doesn't " "get sold" before the cool fall weather begins to make it QUEEN SURGERY A CASE THAT DIDN'T TURN OUT candy, I shall try putting it up for sale in small tin pails, and adorn the pails with bright, attractive labels. For shipping liquid honey, I have used, to a small extent, the 100-lb. spruce kegs, and I could ask for nothing better.

SO WELL.

NOT GOING TO THE FAIR, AFTER ALL. It is with regret that I have finally decided not to make an apiarian exhibit at our State Fair this fall. What's the reason? Well," too much to do," haven't time to spare to prepare things for an exhibit and do the subject justice. I wish, however, to thank the kind friends who have offered to help me in the matter, and who have written and given me some valuable suggestions.

MY REVISED REPORT FOR 1881. In giving my report last January for 1881, I esti mated my 28 colonies at $5.00 each. One died in the winter, one was robbed this spring when I was away from home (my first loss from robbers), one was found queenless, and was united with another, so I commenced the season with 25 colonies. I think it fair to estimate these 25 colonies now at $8.00 each, which would place my profits at an average of $18.30 per colony.

MY WINTERING EXPERIMENTS. You will perhaps remember, that last fall I pre pared my bees for winter in several ways, with a view of determining which was the best method of wintering. Some colonies were left unprotected upon their summer stands, others were protected with chaff cushions; some were covered with the chaff
