The prices listed below are intended to represent, as nearly as possible, the average market prices at which honey and beeswax are selling at the time of the report in the city mentioned. Unless otherwise stated, this is the price at which sales are being made by commission merchants or by producers direct to the retail merchant. When sales are made by commission merchants the usual commission (from five to ten per cent), cartage, and freight will be deducted; and in addition there is often a charge for storage by the commission merchant. When sales are made by the producer direct to the retailer, commission and storage and other charges are eliminated. Sales made to wholesale houses are usually about ten per cent less than those to retail merchants.

The old crop of comb honey is all sold, and we expect the first of the new crop by the middle of July if weather conditions are favorable. have a good stock of very fine extracted honey which we are quoting in a jobbing way at 9 cts. for strictly white; 8 cts. for light amber; 6 to 71⁄2 for strained. We pay 26 cts. in cash and 28 in trade per lb. for clean yellow beeswax delivered in DenTHE COLORADO HONEY-PRODUCERS' ASSOCIATION. FRANK RAUCHFUSS, Manager.


Denver, June 21.

ZANESVILLE.The new crop of comb is just beginning to arrive. Indications are that there will be a fair to good crop generally, which should make prices a little lower than for a year or two past. At present producers are being offered 15 to 16 for fancy; 13 to 15 for No. 1. Inferior grades are praetically unsalable on this market. Prices to the trade are, of course, arbitary as yet. There is a little demand for comb, but the market on extracted is very quiet For beeswax of good quality, producers are receiving 28 cts. in cash, or 30 in exchange for bee supplies.

Zanesville, O., July 4.


CHICAGO. At this writing, not any of the honey gathered in 1912 is on the market; yet we judge from advices that, before this goes to print, we shall have some-comb as well as extracted. The pros pects are that the quality of the honey this season in this vicinity will be superior to any thing we have had of late years. The flow from clover is of excellent quality, and the lindens are promising an abundance at this writing. No. 1 to fancy white comb honey will bring 17 to 18, with a scaling down on the other grades of from 1 to 3 cts. per lb., while the ambers will range from 13 to 15. Extracted white to fancy will bring from 8 to 9; ambers, 7 to 8. Beeswax brings 30 to 32, according to color and cleanliness.

We have anticipated the needs of beekeepers for prompt delivery of supplies during the month of July, and have an unusually large stock from which to draw.

The honey-flow is promising larger than most beekeepers were prepared for, but we have sections and foundation on hand ready for instant shipment, so not a single pound of honey need be lost because of insufficient room in which to store it. Sections of all the standard sizes are here in the original packages, and we can put your name on a package of any size just as soon as your order reaches us.

You will find it will pay you, too, to use foundation liberally this season. Starters are good but full sheets are better, and you can very materially increase your honey crop by giving the bees this little assistance.

We buy honey too, and you will find us ready to give you a good price for your crop, and we can assure you of fair treatment.

Whatever your needs in the beekeeping line, we can supply them promptly, and we are glad to answer questions at any time.
