Sending my inks to far-off States by Express in one-fourth gross boxes, has made it expensive for my patrons, costing as high as $1.65 for Express charges alone on three dozen of 2-oz. bottles. In order to meet a great want among lovers of good ink, at a distance, I will send, on receipt of 25 cts., suffcient ink in powder, of either Black, Violet, or Blue, to make one quart of either color. And for the same sum, enough of Green or Red ink for one pint; or, upon receipt of $1.00, will send the five colors as above, free of charge, thus giving one gallon of five different colors, for one dollar. Ink by mail should be ordered directly from factory.

These inks do not mould, are not injured by freezing, and do not corrode the pen.

Honey Column.

Under this head will be inserted, free of charge, the names of all those having honey to sell, as well as those wanting to buy. Please mention how much, what kind, and prices, as far as possible. As a general thing. I would not advise you to send your honey away to be sold on commission. If near home, where you can look after it, it is often a very good way. By all means, develop your home market. For 25 cents we can furnish little boards to hang up in your dooryard, with the words, Honey for Sale," neatly painted. If wanted by mail, 10 cents extra for postage. Boards saying "Bees and Queens for Sale, "" same price.


CLEVELAND.-Honey.-Our honey market is not quite so active now, but prices remain unchanged. We are selling best white comb in 1-lb. sections at 22: 2-lb. at 20@21; dark, 17 @ 18; ext., 11 c. in large, and 12 c. in small packages. Wax, 22 to 25. Cleveland, Dec. 21, 1881.


CINCINNATI.-Honey.-The market for extracted honey is as good as ever, and the supply keeps up well with the demand. Quotations are about the same as last-8@ 11 cts. per lb, on arrival. Choice comb honey brings 18 cts. on arrival, and sells in the jobbing way as high as 22. Wax, 18 @ 22 on arrival. Cincinnati, Dec. 21, 1881. C. F. MUTH.

DETROIT.-Honey. But little honey is changing hands, dealers being mostly supplied. Good honey, in attractive shape, maintains its price at 20 @ 22 c. War.-But little in the market, and is worth from 20 @ 25 c. A. B. WEED.

Detroit, Dec. 26, 1881. CHICAGO.-Honey.-The market prices of honey and wax remain unchanged. Chicago, Dec. 21, 1881. A. H. NEWMAN.

One barrel of white-clover honey, weighing 235 lbs., for which I will take 10c. per lb.; honey is candied solid. No charge for barrel. Delivered on cars at Gettysburg, Pa. A. I. WEIDNER. Bigler, Adams Co., Pa., Dec. 16, 1881.

I will sell 4400 lbs. of choice sage honey, candied, in 80-lb. tins, in lots of 6 cans or more, delivered in any of the principal cities of the U. S., at 12 c. per lb. R. WILKIN,

San Buenaventura, Cal., Dec. 17, 1881.


The silver spoons came to hand in due time, and all who see them admire them.


Send me two more of the small dictionaries. Everybody who sees them wants one.

M. W. HARRINGTON. York Center, Iowa Co., Ia., Dec. 5, 1881.

The 16-inch Gem planer I ordered of you is received, and is a very fine machine-first-class workmanship, and it works splendidly.

J. D. GOODRICH. East Hardwick, Vt., Dec. 5, 1881.

I was much pleased with the spring balance and comb-holder; and the little book on the microscope is just splendid, and is worth three times its cost to any person who has a scientific taste. A. TIGGES. Marathon City, Wis., Nov. 11, 1881.

[blocks in formation]

The reason I haven't sent these small amounts more promptly, is, it is so expensive, and I had concluded to wait till I made an order, as I do every year; but I know this is wrong; and besides, friend Byrne predicts a failure, and we must not allow that. Keep up the Home Papers by all means, and tell our friend away up in Maine, if he don't want them to take his knife and cut them out. C. H. DEANE. Mortonsville, Ky., Dec. 5, 1881.

Magnifying-glass and postal of Oct. 21st received. Thanks for the beautiful little instrument. It is fine for so small a price. My 75c colony is doing finely. They have taken in 30 lbs. of honey since Wednesday. I am informed that if any want to buy cheap black bees in box hives, they can get them about or near Reynolds, White County, Indiana, at two dollars a stand, as many as one wants. My bees are all packed for winter but one, and it has a good sbed. GEO. L. HOLLENBACH. Noblesville, Hamilton Co., Ind., Oct. 24, 1881.


I have the Sunday-school books, entitled "The Giant-killer," "The Roby Family," "On the Way," "Ethel Linton," "Sheer Off," and "Silver Keys," and I would say to those who have not read them, be sure to get them when you are making your selections. If any one only knew the wholesome and interesting matter contained in these books, he would not, I think, hesitate to hand over the insignificant price and read them. J. P. MOORE. Morgan, Pendleton Co., Ky., Nov. 28, 1881.

I received all the goods promptly, and in good order, but I don't see how in the world you can furnish articles for so small a price. Your pruning shears why. I could not get a pair like that for less than $1.75 in the city of New York! Your glass-comb cutters are simply immense for that price. I had a few glasses to put in the greenhouse, which had to be cut to fit; and I tell you, they just worked splendid. You may expect another order shortly. Meanwhile accept thanks for promptness. Carlstadt, N. J., Nov. 15, 1881.



I only echo the words of hundreds of others when I say that my apiary, without GLEANINGS, would be like a hen with her head cut off. It would merely

flutter around for awhile and then die. And now a little about tobacco: I used to smoke a great deal; but a young lady took me in hand, and said that I must not smoke; result, no more smoke. Just give some of your lady friends the hint, and you will see what power they have over the young men. A. C. MILLER. Barrington, Bristol Co., R. I., Dec. 6, 1881.

I thought I would drop GLEANINGS this time (I have taken it 3 years); but when the last number came I felt I must continue the subscription another year. I have no bees, mine having gone where the sunshineth ever," last winter, and I have not replenished my hives; but I think I will next spring. I can report only two stocks in this township that I know of, and it's almost impossible to find buyers for the boney yet on hand. But send me GLEANINGS: if I have no bees it does me so much good to read of others who do have them; and then the Home Papers are a source of great pleasure and profit to me, if others do denounce them. T. J. COOK. Newpoint, Decatur Co., Ind., Dec. 7, 1881.

The box of goods shipped to my address the 17th is received, every thing in good condition. Almost every article was better than we expected · -a wonder for the money-50 to 75 per cent cheaper than the same could have been bought here. Why do you advertise the carpenter's level an "imitation rosewood," when it is good cherry, same as all levels, just as good as rosewood; while to say "imitation," conveys the impression that it is soft wood, only painted, which would be a poor article even if it imitated gold. I shall want another box of goods after awhile. S. C. PERRY. Portland, Ionia Co., Mich., Nov. 25, 1881. [Why, you see, friend P., it was imitation rosewood at first, but the manufacturers improved them, and we had not got round to note it. Many thanks for your kind words.]


I was so delighted with GLEANINGS. I had some copies in my pocket. When I saw a bee-keeper I offered him one to read, with an invitation to take a copy. In every instance they have done so. Wilkinson did not know that he wanted it at the time I offered him the copy. I passed his residende yesterday, and asked him how he liked it. He came out to the road and said it was just what he wanted. He would not do without it; said his wife wanted him to take the A B C, but GLEANINGS was just what he wanted. He never had any honey except what he took out of hives, L. movable frames. They are all in a hurry; want to begin with Nov. No. Send them along. FRED TIMMERMAN.

Fayette, Iowa, Nov. 1, 1881.

Smoker No. 2, which you sent me in place of the one Uncle Sam put his foot on, came all right, and, as the girls say about a new hat, it is "just nobby." I think you are very kind to send another smoker; but I do not feel just right to have you stand all the loss. I don't know which to do in return for your kindness-pay off the debt against your factory, or try to get you some new subscribers for your magazine. I think I will try the latter plan. How would it do to leave a space at the bottom of your labels for honey, to fill with pen or pencil the kind of honey the case contained, also space for name and address of producer? P. W. RICHTMYER. Gilboa, Schoharie Co., N. Y., Nov. 22, 1881.

[I think I would use a separate label for the purpose you mention, friend R.-Your very kind words pay for all the damage, but we should be very glad of the subscribers.]

What will be your lowest terms for GLEANINGS for five years and one Waterbury watch, latest improved nickel case? We like GLEANINGS 80 well, and also the editor, that we want to secure it for the above time. It is a pleasure to deal with you; for if there are any mistakes, you are always ready to correct them if you were at fault. W. O. & G. L. BEACH. Quitman, Nodaway Co., Mo., Nov. 19, 1881.

[Many thanks for your very kind words, friend B.; and all that troubles me about them is, that I may not always deserve them.-As we are doing a great deal to introduce the Waterbury watches, the manufacturers have given us an especial rate, where we use them as premiums, and this enables us to give a watch, free of postage, to everybody who sends us $5.00 for five subscriptions. It may be a club of five, or sent to five different addresses, if all are new.]

On page 567, Nov. GLEANINGS, I notice an editorial headed, "A Big Swindle," in which you ask, "Now, who of you is it that has been selling us pure queens for hybrids?" I suppose I must confess that I am "guilty," for I see no chance to escape, as one of your customers, whose order I filled, wrote me that the queen (which I sold for hybrid) was pure. Speaking of her bees he called them "little beauties." I wrote him that I was glad to hear it, and of course did not ask for any thing extra. I did not know she was pure when I shipped her I thought she was hybrid, but found out later that I was mistaken. So it was with one or two more I shipped you for hybrids, and I thought, "Won't that fellow be tickled when he finds that his queen is a tested one instead of a hybrid one?" I feel amply paid by so agreeably disappointing those fellows, if it was really I. I know I am the "chap" in at least one of the cases which I have stated. Can you not tell, friend Root, by going to your queen-books, the one from whom you got the "bogus" hybrid queens? Look, and let me know.


I wish to state that I fully approve of your idea of having a list of square men. I think it will be a great aid to all of the honest ones. I will leave it to you and my customers whether I deserve to be placed in that list or not. I have dealt with you very much, and you have trusted me whenever I asked you to send me goods, before I had paid for them, for which I hereby tender you many thanks. You can tell whether I have acted honestly with you or not. I have tried to follow the golden rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do to you," in all my business transactions. I have tried to, in every instance, as I thought God would have me do, asking him to lead me; and, judging from the pile of letters before me to-night, I have not tried in vain. J. P. MOORE. Morgan, Pendleton Co., Ky., Nov. 4, 1881,
