following gentlemen were elected officers of the temporary organization: J. S. Tadlock, President; T. C. Greenwood, Vice-President; Thos. Balcomb, Secretary; P. H. Callahan, Treasurer. We respectfully invite all readers of GLEANINGS living in West Texas, or any part of the State, to be present, that we may permanently organize and discuss the many interesting topics in connection with the best management of bees for our Southern climate.

THOS. BALCOMB, Sec.

feed safely at any time during the day. In feeding in a chaff hive, if the colony covers all, or nearly all, the combs, place the feed on top of the combs, up against one side of the hive, as this affords them a better chance to get out and in. Letting the cloth drop down the outside also helps them. If you give the syrup to them about as hot as you can bear your finger in it, they will take it much faster when the weather is cool. It is true, you have to open the hive to replenish this feeder; but when you remember that only about four or five fillings are required will hold their next meeting at Wilgus Hall, Newto prepare almost any colony for winter, this comerstown, O., at 10 A. M., Oct. 10, instead of Oct. feature is of but small moment. I think I would make the winter passages after the 5. feeding is all done, say about two to each L. frame. If you make them before feeding, they might build them up again. For winter, leave the chaff-hive entrance open full width. You know how fully has been demonstrated the need of a great deal of ventilation, by the reports for the past year or two.

Where your bees have plenty of natural stores, of course the feeding part can be omitted; but I am much inclined to think it is almost a misfortune for the bees to have stores enough, without any feeding. Still, I would hardly advise extracting their honey to give them sugar stores, as late as this. If the combs are not filled to bulging, give them some sugar syrup besides their stores. I believe cases are pretty rare where bees have too much stores for winter in October. Lots of bees and lots of food, in a chaff hive, with lots of ventilation, is about what they seem to need, as far as 1 can gather.

WEST TEXAS BEE-KEEPERS' ASSOCIATION. In consideration of the great interest that is now being taken in scientific bee-keeping in Western Texas, a number of bee-keepers met at the office of T. C. Greenwood, in Luling, on the 2d inst., for the purpose of effecting a temporary organization, to be known as the "West Texas Bee-Keepers' Association." Although with only a few days' notice, there were 420 colonies of bees represented, with a product, up to date, of about 32,000 lbs. of honey. After some spirited discussions, it was deemed advisable to postpone the organizing of the permanent association until the first day of November, 1882, so that many living at a distance may have an opportunity to come and take part in said organization.

BOOKS for BEE-KEEPERS and OTHERS. Any of these books on which postage is not given, will be forwarded by mail, postpaid, on receipt of price.

In buying books, as every thing else, we are liable to disappointment, if we make a purchase without seeing the article. Admitting that the bookseller could read all the books he offers, as he has them for sale, it were hardly to be expected he would be the one to mention all the faults, as well as good things about a book. I very much desire that those who favor me with their patronage, shall not be disappointed, and therefore, I am going to try to prevent it by mentioning all the faults so far as I can, that the purchaser may know what he is getting. In the following list, books that I approve, I have marked with a*; those I especially approve,**; those that are not up to times, t; books that contain but little matter for the price, large type and much space between the lines,; foreign, 8.

BOOKS ESPECIALLY FOR BEE-KEEPERS. As many of the bee books are sent with other goods by freight or express, incurring no postage, we give prices separately. You will notice, that you can judge of the size of the books very well, by the amount required for postage on each. Postage.] Price without postage.
