The Best Time
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 season5 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.

SCHENECTADY.-Both comb adn extracted are good demand, and no accumulation of stock, which is rather unusual for November. In fact, buckwheat, both comb and extracted, is scarce, and we are unable to fill large orders. We quote fancy white, 16 to 17; No. 1, 14 to 15; other grades, 12 to 13; buckwheat, 12 to 14, according to quality; extracted, light, 8; dark, 8 to 9.

Schenectady, Nov. 1. CHARLES MACCULLOCH.

INDIANAPOLIS.-White comb sells at 18 cts. in ten-case lots; No. 1 white, one cent less. Amber comb in slow demand, and at lower figures. Best extracted sells at 11 to 12 cents in 5-gallon cans. Comb honey seems to be in excessive demand, and. very little is now being offered by producers; and it is surmised that some are holding for higher prices; but at higher prices the demand would cease. Beeswax is in good demand, and producers are being paid 30 cents per pound. Indianapolis, Nov. 2


ST. LOUIS.-The demand for choice new comb honey in this market is very good, with a supply equal to the demand. Southern comb honey of inferior quality is still moving very slowly. We quote fancy white comb honey at 16 to 17; No. 2 white at 15; amber, 13 to 15; dark, 9 to 11. The demand for extracted honey is also good. We quote light amber Southern, in barrels and half barrels, at 7; in five-gallon cans, 72. Some white-clover California honey has come to this market recently, and is quotable nominally at 9 to 92. Beeswax is in good demand at 30 cents. Inferior and impure sells for less.

"I believe," says an old subscriber, "that every time The Youth's Companion enters a home it does that home a genuine service." That describes the purpose of the publishers exactly. The paper is not filled with mischievous or idle thoughts to fill an idle hour. It provides healthy pastime, recreation that builds up. It is to the minds of eager and impressionable young people what sound athletics are to their bodies.

At a cost of less than four cents a week The Youth's Companion opens the door to a company of the most distinguished men and women in America and Europe. Whether they are revealing the latest discoveries in science, or describing great industrial achievements, or telling of their wanderings in strange corners of the world, or feeding the imagination with rare stories, they are giving Companion readers the best of themselves.

Seven serials at least will be published by The Companion in 1913, and nearly 200 other complete stories, in addition to some 50 special contributions, 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. Announcement for 1913 will be sent with sample copies of the paper to any address on request.

Every new subscriber who sends $2.00 for the fifty-two weekly issues of 1913 will receive as а gift The Companion Window Transparency and Calendar for 1913, the most exquisite novelty ever offered to Companion readers; also, all the issues of the Companion for the remaining weeks of 1912, free.

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 On $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.
