COMB-HONEY OUTFIT NO. 7.
This outfit is especially adapted to the needs of those who winter indoors or live in a climate where the winters are mild. Each item has been very carefully selected, and we doubt the wisdom of leaving any article out; but the purchaser may do so without altering the prices on the other items.
(for taking honey from the bees)
SPECIAL OFFER Delivered, after June 1st, at any express office, north of
Ohio River and east of Mississippi River
For delivery to points outside of above free limit, we will make terms on application.
In many cases a return of $10.00 in honey has been secured the first year from just such an outfit as this; and in addition one swarm and possibly two may be secured, which practically doubles the value of the investment. This is not an uncommon occurrence. On the contrary, scores of men have done as well or better, where the conditions were at all favorable. Read these reports.
Gentlemen: I must say that the two three-frame nuclei that you sent me last year beat anything here by over one-third. It has given them a pretty good name around here. So much for your stock. No more black bees for me. Burford, Ont., Canada, Oct. 4, 1909. W. M. KINSEY. Gentlemen: The bees and supplies arrived in perfect condition. So far they have given perfect satisfaction in every way. We opened the bees in the evening at about 4 c'clock, and the next morning bright and early they were hard at work in the orchard. I have worked aroundthe hives at different tim s to see if the bees would show any signs of resentment, but they seem to be perfectly contented in their new home. Yours very truly,
Madison, O., May 14, 1908.
WM. S. HESS, JR. Gentlemen: The three-frame nuclei which I purchased from you on June 25th have paid in cash over 100 per cent on all outlay, and the pleasure derived from looking after them over 200 per cent. They still have about 60 to 65 pounds of honey in the hive. Yours very truly, 734 Hayden Ave.. Collinwood Sta.. Cleveland, O., Oct. 17, 1908. GEO. B. OGLE. Gentlemen:-Our bee-outfit arrived in fine condition, and we transferred the bees in the yard, with the whole room of forty boys and girls standing around them. The day was cool and many bees dropped to the ground, apparently dead, but the children found if they held them in their hands and breathed on them that they would revive, so it ended by boys and girls having hands full of crawling bees The bees were gentle as could be and now the children are not afraid of them, and if one gets on the window in the room, a boy will pick it off and put it out.
To say we are pleased is stating it mildly. We are delighted. There are many things we want to know but have Mr. Root's A B C of Bee Culture from the library and can learn by study and observation.

Dear Sirs:-Enclosed please find my check for renewal of my subscription to GLEANINGS for five years. I greatly appreciate GLEANINGS, not only for the good and plain reading-matter, but also because it furnishes many kinks which otherwise one would be unable to find out. These kinks have enabled me in the last three years to sell from ten colonies on the average over $100.00 per year. I donate the money to my church for charitable purposes, and the members are eager to buy, because they know my honey is absolutely pure. Yours very truly, A. B. MOLDENKE, D. D.
The A. I. Root Company, Medina, Ohio
Enclosed find draft for $25.00, for which please send me Outfit No. 7, as listed above. I understand that you guarantee safe arrival and prepay all charges, if north of Ohio River and east of Mississippi River.
