ETHICS OF THE STAGE. MUSIC HALLS AND THEATRES. MR GEORGE ALEXANDER'S VIEWS. At the recent meeting of the Actors' Church Union the' Bishop of Southwark, speaking in support of a proposal to In clude music-halls in the operations of the society, said that the distinction between the theatre proper and the variety stage was melting away. Commenting upon . the statement yes terday, Mr George Alexander told a member of our staff that so far as social relations were concerned there could be no doubt that the members of tbe two processions fraternised most happily to gether. ' ? . 'But,' continued the popular actor, ' it Is equally evident that the theatre and music-hall are Institutions widely different from one another. For this reason, and also on purely artistic grounds, I hold that a line must be orawn between the-aclor an J fae variety - artiste.' „ 'Still,' remarked jiur -representative.'

The petitioner was Mr Thomas Bater, a cattle salesman, of Blrkenhead, and there were two co-respondents, Mr Charles Mcntrell, of Liverpool, and Mr George W.

TIE BEEKEEPER STORNG COLONIES [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 9 October 1907

mmmmm : vr^itQ i^jjoitfxs, - Tbe prolificacy - of queens varies to such an 'extent that it is impossible to lay Sown any hard-mhd fast rule for ths production of strong colonies. It Is ap parent that stimulation or other' coaxing mould be ineffectual if the queen is not prolific. When at the commencement of the harvest queens are found to have filled the brood nest with eggs and brood. they should,, writes an English , bee keeper, be allowed to bave the run of a second . chamber end worked for ex tracted honey. It would be folly to cramp such queens with dummies and expect the colony to sit down quietly to such treatment and store honey In sections. As soon as all the room is occupied with brood the stock will swarm. Many queens will not come up to this stan dard of prolificacy. Consequently it la , advantageous to reduce the size of such brood nests accordingly, end thus force the. bees to store in the supers. This may . be done by dummying, by which means i we can make a hive elas...

THE SWASHING SEASON. When the season is favorable for the storing of honey, bees prosper, and their hives are soon overflowing with occu pants. The home (It Is pointed out In the 'Michigan Farmer') is then too small for the multitude. By mutual con sent -the greater part of the bees, with the queen, agree to abandon the . old home and migrate for pastures new, tak uieu- cumices as to wnai eini or a Dome thgy may be able to secure. The foragers that happen to be In the : fields when the exodus takes place rer main with the young queen and help ber build up the fortunes of her family, i When the swarm is preparing to depart there is an unwonted state of excite ment.
