The Best Time to
The season just past has demonstrated more clearly than ever the necessity for being prepared for a honey-flow BEFORE it comes. If you wait until the season is upon you, the chances are that the greater part of the crop will be lost while you are impatiently waiting for supplies to arrive. It may seem a little early now to think of next season's honey harvest; but the fact of the matter is, this is just the time to order goods for next
We are beginning now to replenish our stocks. We shall have carload orders coming from the factory very often for the next few weeks. Special orders placed now can have just the attention they need, both here and at the factory, and you may have your goods sent in one of our cars, thereby saving on transportation charges. Regular stock will come straight to you from our warehouse in new unbroken packages, and you can put the goods together in your odd minutes, thereby saving the expense of extra help in the spring.
Our usual discounts for early orders apply again this seasonsix per cent for cash orders sent in October, the discount diminishing one per cent per month as the season advances. These discounts mean a considerable saving, and you might as well take advantage of the highest by ordering now. No change of prices has as yet been announced, and you may, therefore, order from your present catalog. If your catalog has been mislaid, write us at once and we will send another.
If your season's crop of honey is not yet disposed of, we can give you a good price and handle it promptly. Send samples of extracted and full information as to containers, flavor, quantity, price, etc. We also handle comb honey.

Honey for Sale by the National Beekeepers' Ass'n
Beginning this month, we are arranging a card record of every member of our Association who has honey for sale. This record will tell the amount of honey he has, what kind, how put up, and the price 1. o. b. his station. Buyers who are in need of honey, whether in ton or car lots, will do well to write us, stating their wants. We will then refer you direct to the beekeeper having what you want, and the deal will be made direct between you and him.
No Charge for This Information
Not one cent will be charged you for this. Our object is to widen the distribution of honey, bring buyer and producer closer together, place each particular kind of honey in the market that demands it, and thus assist the producer in getting a better price.
We have furnished our members this year with standard tin packages for extracted honey. Hundreds of dollars' worth have been sold, and buyers are coming back for their second and third orders. This tells you the satisfaction they are giving. Are also handling glass packages.
The Beekeepers' Review
This is now the official organ of the Association. Send in $1.00 now, and get the November and December numbers free. The dollar will apply on your 1913 subscription. When you get the Review, look up the list of branches and send 50 cts. to the nearest branch. This total of $1.50 will entitle you to full National and branch benefits, together with a subscription to the Review to the end of 1913. We now have 23 National branches, in almost as many different States. Let us help YOU sell your honey.

Honey Reports continued from page 2. CINCINNATI.-The market on comb honey is quiet, and there is not very much demand. This we owe to the hot weather for this time of the year and the large fruit crop. For No. 1 white comb honey in a wholesale way we are getting 151⁄2 cents. There is no demand for off-grade comb honey. The demand for extracted is fair, white selling at 91⁄2 in 60-pound cans; light amber in 60-pound cans is selling at 8 cents. Beeswax, fair demand at $33.00 per hundred. The above are our selling prices, not what we are paying. Cincinnati, Sept. 17. C. H. W. WEBER & CO.
CHICAGO. Comb honey is beginning to accumulate. The demand of late has not taken receipts upon arrival, yet the quality of the honey is so much superior to that of last season that we look for a much larger volume of business. Prices still range from 17 to 18 for the No. 1 to fancy. Other grades from 1 to 3 cts. per lb. less. Extracted honey is selling chiefly at 8 to 9 for the white grades, it now being difficult to obtain 10 cts. for the clover; but the fine lindens are still bringing that price. Beeswax remains unchanged at from 30 to 32, according to color and cleanliness. Chicago, Sept. 17.
R. A. BURNETT & Co.
NEW YORK.-Comb honey is now arriving right along, with a fair demand for all grades at unchanged prices. The season for buckwheat being late this year, there is none on the market yet to speak of. From the reports we are receiving from producers there will be a rather light crop; however, the demand for buckwheat comb honey being limited we do not think that higher prices will rule than from 10 to 12 cts., according to quality. Extracted is in fair demand for all grades at unchanged prices.
New York, Sept. 17. HILDRETH & SEGELKEN.
ST. LOUIS.-The receipts of comb honey are still small, and of irregular quality; but we derstand that several carloads of comb honey are on the way from California and Colorado, and same are offered, to arrive, at $3.75 to $3.80 per ease for the best grade; No. 2 honey sells at 25 to 50 cents per case less, cases weighing not less than 22 pounds net. Lighter weight honey generally sells by the pound at 15 to 16 cents for white, and 14 to 15 for light-amber color. Dark and inferior honey is not in demand, and is sold at considerably less. The demand keeps up on extracted honey, and is quotable at 7 cents for light amber, in barrels and half-barrels, and 71⁄2 cents in five-gallon cans. There is no white clover or California amber honey offered on this market at present. Beeswax is in good demand at 29 cents for prime. Inferior and impure less. R. HARTMANN PRODUCE CO.
St. Louis, Mo., Sept. 11,
ALBANY. The honey market is quiet, there being only white grades on hand, and we have to ask more for them than buyers like to pay. There being no buckwheat honey, it would seem should be able to get better price for the white grade; but as the two kinds go to different classes of trade, those who have a demand for buckwheat which we could use at 13 cts. can not pay 15 to 16 that we ought to get for the white grades. Extracted is quiet; principal demand is for white grade at 8 to 82. Buckwheat, 7 to 72. Beeswax, 30 to 32. H. R. WRIGHT.
