Queens reared scientifically from breeders perfected by years of elimination of all undesirable traits, are far better and more prolific than the ones hatched from a natural swarm or supersedure cells. We have the famons Moore strain of Italians, and are giving every care to the perfection of cells and mating. We have never. had any disease in or near our apiary. If you are interested, write us for booklets describing our method. Untested queens, 75 cts.: dozen, $8.00. DRS. WALLIN & CORLIS,

Some work looking to the interests of the industry has been done, but more is needed. We must have the support of those interested, to accomplish more. We have not been getting the support necessary. If you have not been seeing the display of Oklahoma honey shown at this fair you have no idea of its magnificence. It will likely be as good this year, or better, than ever before. It has been the practice of the fair management to throw the grounds open in the evening, and admission is free. I presume this will be done this year. Come and treat yourself to the sight of a fine honey display, and at the same time give encouragement to the industry in which you are interested. It is hoped to present a program of more than usual interest.

M. FRED GARDINER, President.

Honey Reports continued from page 2. BUFFALO. The demand for honey is still very slow here. Receipts are light, and still there is plenty for the demand. We quote No. 1 to fancy white-clover comb at 16 to 17, and in good-sized lots this would be shaded from one to two cents to effect sales.

Buffalo, N. Y., Sept. 7. W. C. ToWNSEND.

ZANESVILLE.-Honey is moving a little more briskly. The jobbing trade is still understocked, and now is a favorable time for producers to sell their crop; 15 to 16 cents is being offered producers for No. 1 and fancy white-clover comb, and 8 to 81⁄2 for best white extracted. Prices to the trade grade from 19 down, on comb, according to quality and quantity. Producers are offered 28 cents cash, 30 in trade, for beeswax of good quality. Zanesville, O., Sept. 5.


NEW YORK.-There is a good demand for new comb honey, and shipments are now arriving more freely and in larger quantities. We quote fancy white, 15; and in some cases it will bring 16; No. 1 white, 14; No. 2 white, 13. No buckwheat is on the market as yet, but we should think it would sell on arrival at about 10 to 11. There is no change in the market as to extracted, prices remaining the same as in our last quotation, with sufficient supplies. Beeswax is steady at 30.

New York, Sept. 5. HILDRETH & SEGELKEN.

LIVERPOOL-Since we last reported to you our honey market has continued quiet; 25 barrels Chilian have been sold at $6.84 for pile 2, and 20 casks unstrained Jamaica at $6.00; $5.76 has been refused for 53 barrels Peruvian (manufacturing quality); sellers ask $6.00. We are sorry the demand for white and fine sorts is so poor; but sellers of Chilian, pile X and 1, are not getting on, and we think the demand is only a question of time. Some 50 cases Californian sold at $11.16 for fine, $9.60 to $11.16 quoted. Jamaica honey is slow, and there are no sales of importance beyond that mentioned above. Other descriptions are quoted as follows: Haitien, $5.76 to $7.20; Peruvian, $3.84 to $4.80; Chilian, $5.52 to $8.16; Jamaican, $6.24 to $7.68; Californian, $9.60 to $10.92. Beeswax, market is steady. Arrivals' of Chilian just in will test our market. Sales of Gambia at $34.48, and Sierra Leone at $33.54. Other descriptions are quoted as follows: African, $32.16 to $34.48; Jamaican, $37.72; West Indies, $32.64 to $36.28.

"Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.' If he plants poor seed corn he will have missing hills or worse than that. He may go through the motions necessary to raise a crop, and lose a great part of his labor as well as a part of his land by having missing hills. Our attention is called to this matter by two very valuable articles in the Successful Farmer, of Des Moines, Ia., for September. One of the articles is entitled "The Significance of the Missing Hills." The other is a "seed-corn symposium." And there is still another article entitled "Our Junior Farmers' Department." It tells the boys on the farm just how to go to work to pick out the seed corn and how to keep it so it will be sure to grow. Successful Farming is only 25 cents a year; but these articles I have mentioned are easily worth ten times that much.

Just now we have here a beautiful field of corn with great handsome ears bending over the stalks by their weight. We have for several years selected our seed corn in the fall, and dried and preserved it in a basement where there is steam heat. Well, for many years we have been in the habit of planting white beans in the missing hills, or where there was only one stalk in a hill. Last spring we did not plant any beans in that particular field because there were no missing hills, or almost none at all, and hardly any containing only one stalk. Another thing, when you find a farmer so careful and thorough in all his work that he picks out his ears to plant at just the proper time, and then tests every ear before planting in the spring, etc., you will find this farmer looks after his interests in a like manner all over his farm; and he is the farmer who has an automobile to get around and enjoy life in an up-to-date way. Are you one of that sort?


There is nothing that adds more to the attractiveness of a honey package than a neat label carefully worded and of the proper style. The guarantee of purity by the producer put on every package he offers for sale is the best protection he can get from the stories of adulteration that injure the sale of his product.

For glass packages a small label is generally preferred, while for tin, one that laps around the package is considered best. We supply both gummed and ungummed labels. We recommend the ungummed, however, for they adhere more readily when pasted on a package, and are not affected by changes in the atmosphere as are the gummed.

We give on the opposite page a few illustrations of some of our stock patterns. These are printed, some of them in two or more colors, some in bronze on glazed paper, and some in black on glazed paper. To get a very adequate idea of these you ought to see samples printed on regular label stock in the proper colors. We have a catalog which shows just what we can furnish in this line, and we shall be glad to send it on request.

Just now we can give very prompt attention to orders for this label work. We can furnish special labels too if you tell us what you want. Of course the price is higher than for our regular patterns; but if you are buying them in very large quantities you may want something to suit your individual tastes. Let us do your label work for you, for we can guarantee satisfaction.

The A. I. Root Co., Medina, O.
