The Best Time to
Buy Supplies

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 reports continued from page 2. BUFFALO.-There is some improvement in the demand for white comb honey. Prices are 1:00 high; but in order to move freely we must keep at about as quoted. No accumulation in the market. Conditions are favorable for a free movement. No dark arriving. We quote: Fancy white-clover comb, 16; No. 1 to choice, 15 to 16; No. 2, 12 to 14. Arrivals of white extracted are very light, and sell at 8% to 9.

CHICAGO. During September honey has sold in a very satisfactory way. Nearly all the receipts were taken upon arrival, and the price has been well maintained on comb honey. Most of the No. 1 white sells at 16 to 17, and the A No. 1 to fancy at 17 to 18. The amber grades have sold at from 12 to 15, according to color and flavor. At present there is an easy feeling, and prices are likely to recede from those herein given. Extracted con tinues to sell at 8 to 9 for the white grades, with the lindens bringing 10 if of high flavor and quality. Amber grades range at from 7 to 8, according to color, flavor, and quality. Beeswax is steady at from 30 to 32.

ST. LOUIS.-The demand for choice new comb honey is very good, and the supply is inadequate. There is considerable comb honey of inferior quality coming from the South, which moves very slow. We quote fancy white at 16 to 17; No. 2 white, 15; amber, 13 to 15; dark, 9 to 11; broken and inferior quality is not wanted in this market. The demand for extracted honey is also good, and quotable as follows: Light-amber Southern in barrels and half-barrels, 7 cents; in five-gallon cans, 72. The receipts of white-clover and California are small, and are quotable nominal at 9 to 91⁄2 cents. Beeswax is in good demand at 29 for prime. Inferior and impure sells at less. R.

LIVERPOOL. The market remains very slow at present, and we have had no fresh arrivals during the past fortnight. Sellers are not pressing for offers, and in the mean time there is not much inquiry. Quotations are as follows: Haitien, $6.24 to $7.92 per cwt.; Peruvian, $5.76; Chilian, $5.76 to $8.16; Jamaican, $6.00 to $8.40; Californian, $9.60 to $11.16. The beeswax market is steady; but as consumers are full at present we have no business to report. We value Chilian at $33.88 to $39.92. Business has been doing in Gambia and Sierra Leone at last prices. Values are about as follows: Chilian, $33.88 to $39.92; African, $32.64 to $34.48; West Indies, $31.44 to $36.28.

Seven serials at least will be published by The Companion in 1913, and nearly 200 other complete stories, in addition to some 50 special contribu tions, and a treasure-box of sketches, anecdotes, expert advice as to athletic sports, ideas for handy devices round the house, and so forth-long hours of companionship with the wise, the adventurous, and the entertaining.

LEARN BEEKEEPING from the Beginning

"First Lessons In Beekeeping" and the

American Bee Journal, one year, Both for Only $1.00

"First Lessons in Beekeeping" is a 190-page book telling all that the beginner
need know.
It has an attractive paper cover, and many illustrations.

"Doolittle's Scientific Queen-rearing,” and the

American Bee Journal, one year, Both for Only $1.00

Doolittle's "Scientific Queen-rearing" book contains 126 pages, and is bound in leatherette with round corners. It tells in the clearest way possible just how the famous queen-breeder, Mr. G. M. Doolittle, rears the best of queen bees in perfect accord with Nature's way. As all know, Mr. Doolittle has spent some 40 years in rearing queens and producing honey. He has no superior as a queen-breeder. You can learn to rear fine queens by following his directions.

The beginner will want "First Lessons;" the older beekeeper should have Scientific Queen-
rearing." You will not regret it if you send your $1.00 now and get either one of these books
with the JOURNAL, as the JOURNAL itself is worth more than the total cost.
