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. It 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.

CITY MARKETS.

CINCINNATI. - Honey. Demand is good for extracted honey, both for manufacturing purposes (by the barrel), and for table use. The demand is very good for honey in 1-lb. jars. A good deal of comb honey could be sold if we had a good article at a rate within range of the views of the consumer; i. e. which could be wholesaled at 20c, and retailed at 25c. We pay 7@100 per lb. for extracted, and 16@20c per lb. for good comb honey in sections.

Beeswax is scarce, and in good demand at 2@27c per lb. on arrival. C. F. MUTH.

Cincinnati, O., Nov. 18, 1882.

NEW YORK.-Honey.-Our present stock of comb honey is light, and demand limited, owing to high prices asked. Prices range as follows: Best white in 1-lb. sections, looking neat, clean, and atⱭractive, 22@25c; the same, in 2-lb. sections, 20@22c; fair, 1lb., 19@21c; fair, 2-lb.. 16@18c; buckwheat, 1-lb., 16@ 17c; in 2-lb., 14@lic. Extracted clover honey, 10@11; buckwheat, 8@8c.

Beeswax is scarce, and finds ready sale at 31@32c.
H. K. & F. B. THURBER & CO.

New York, Nov. 22, 1882.

DETROIT.-Honey - The honey market, upon the opening of the month, was active, and prices firm. This satisfactory condition was soon followed by such a large number of shipments that prices were greatly depressed. The surplus is being gradually absorbed, but prices are still low. First-class comb honey is worth about 18c.; dark, 15@17c. Wax is so scarce that it is hardly quotable, but is worth 30 cts. Detroit, Nov. 24, 1882.

TIMES DO.

DEC. 1, 1882.
Published Monthly.

Established in 1873.

It seems a story from the world of spirits, When any one obtains that which he merits, Or merits that which he obtains.''

ELL, I think that the last number of GLEANINGS Contained all the praise that I merit.

[ocr errors]

I had no idea that that short extract that I gave would bring down upon my head such a shower of praise. I expected that the reply would be something like this: "Friend Hutchinson being the only one who furnishes us with an article each month, we thought it best to publish his 'Notes' in the same part of the paper each month." Yes, friend Root, I think I know how to bear either praise or censure: but I do not mean by this that 1 am indifferent to either. When I have worked hard, it is very pleasant to know that my efforts are appreciated. It is working simply for the sake of being praised that I detest. If I am in the wrong, I am thankful to the one who points out my mistake. There are quite a number of apiarian writers who are, I think, more deserving of praise than myself, and I should be very much pleased indeed to see them receive it. Before leaving this subject I wish to especially thank you, friend Root, for the encouraging and instructive words that you used to send me occasionally, when I first began to contribute to GLEANINGS. Had it not been for your kindly recognition of my one little talent," it is doubtful if I should now be earning $200, or thereabouts, each year, writing for the bee journals and agricultural papers.

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THAT BUZZ-SAW.

The illustration of my buzz-Saw, in the last GLEANINGS. is excellent, and, with the exception of the WHAT IT WILL SOME- bearing of the main shaft, shows every part quite distinctly. Had I known how to properly use the sketching camera, I do not think there would have been any exception. Standing at the end of the machine, the bearing of the main shaft looks something like this:

TERMS: $1.00 PER ANNUM, IN ADVANCE; 2 Copies for $1.90; 3 for $2.75; 5 for $4.00, 10 or more, 75 cts. each. Single Number, 10 cts, Additions to clubs may be made at club rates. Above are all to be sent to ONE POSTOFFICE. Clubs to different postoffices, NOT LESS than 90 cts. each.

In the Oct. GLEANINGS, this part of the machine is described as follows: "The legs (A A), are 5 feet 6 in. long, and cross each other 3 feet 4 inches from their lower ends. Where they cross, a perpendicular slot % of an inch deep and 4 in. wide is made upon the inside of each leg, and into this slot is fitted a piece of hard wood (B) 4 in. wide, one inch thick, and ope foot long. The bolt that passes through the legs where they cross also passes through a slot cut in this piece of hard wood. Through the lower end of this piece of wood is a hole (C) in which runs the iron gudgeon on the end of the main shaft. Of course, each pair of legs is furnished with such a piece of wood." Had I gone more into details when writing the above description, I should have said that the hole (C) is an elongated hole, or, rather, a slot, through which can be passed the crank upon the end of the main shaft. The slot D, in the end of the pitman E, enables a careless visitor to get his
