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 season— 5 per cent for cash orders sent in November, 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.

Your money in the savings bank is drawing 3 per cent, or at most 4 per cent interest. Here is an opportunity to invest it at 12 per cent-8 per cent more than it is now earning.
In most localities this has been a good season for honey and for making increase. Prospects were never better than for the coming season, and you are almost certain to be needing supplies in the spring. If you wait until the first of April or later, you must pay full catalog prices. If your order and remittance are sent in during November, a discount of 5 per cent will be allowed, five per cent on money invested for five months is equivalent to 12 per cent per annum, figured for five months' time. It looks good, doesn't it? Why not effect this saving by ordering now, and thus also secure the peace of mind that will result from having your supplies all ready when you need them most? Your order can be sent in now, and the goods will be shipped at any time to suit your convenience.
Best goods, best service, best treatment, are insured by sending your orders to OHIO'S BEESUPPLY CENTER-special headquarters for beekeepers in Ohio, West Virginia, and Western Pennsylvania. If you haven't a catalog, ask for it.

Honey reports continued from page 2. CINCINNATI.-The demand for comb and extracted honey is fair, with a good supply. No. 1 white comb honey sells in large lots at $3.00 per case, 24 sections; there is no demand for off grades. White extracted honey in 60-pound cans is selling from 92 to 10 cents; light amber, in barrels, 7 to 7% in 60-pound cans, 8 to 81⁄2. Beeswax, fair demand, sells at $33.00 per hundred. The above are our selling prices, not what we are paying. Cincinnati, Oct. 17.

ZANESVILLE.-Arrivals of honey are not heavy but are about sufficient to meet the present demand. For the next month or six weeks there should be a pretty good movement, but after that time, during and succeeding the holiday season, the demand is usually light. In small lots to retail grocers 18 to 19c is being received for best grades of white comb, prices being shaded somewhat on quality orders. White extracted in 60-lb. cans is quoted at 92 to 11c, according to quantity. Producers are receiving for beeswax 28c cash, 30 in exchange for supplies. Zanesville, O., Oct. 22. E. W. PEIRCE.
