"Well, friend," replied the Quaker, "thou shalt cut aa long as thou thinks proper, now thou beest here, but—" looking -him strnlght .In tho face—"come again thou never shalt."

HISTORIC IMPORTANCE OF WHEAT. Wheat, since the earliest - period to which history reaches, has always been accounted the most valuable grain of tho culmiferous tribe, hence nil improve ments which repeat Its culture are of greater importnnco to the husbandman than those which relate to other'vgrain. The fertility of this'grain Is oven greater than that of any other. Pliny, who lived In the first century A.D., mentions some Instances, of fertility which arc too. remarkable to be omitted.

The. unfitted bee-keepers will have to yield and give-1 way to the more fit, just as small pnanur factoring concerns, illy located-and with-, out the power, machinery, and the brains to. run them,; have to give way to the larger and stronger ones. ' The bee keeper who. get3- out of tlio old ruts travelled by his grandfathers, and. ad justs himself to present conditions, is. wise. He must keep pace, with the times, vand to do this he must think,' study, and read. He hiust adopt new . methods and apply them. To such a bee-keeper success may be'assured.

They may suffer from disease, dysentery, ' or foul brood; they breed slowly because o£ the scarcity of stores in the combs, but how often do wo hear that Jt is want of empty cells that Is the positive cause 'of really slow progress, even while urg* Ing the bees while feding." Want of Cells — that is, empty cells— , might be consi3ered. due solely to the ■ combs being filled with honey, dui ic is not so. In most cases. If the queen Is. wanting empty cells when laying In earnest, It Is because the combs contain too much pollen or bee-bread.' . - The bee-bread the bees must have in - the spring, when breeding commences,, it Is not to be obtained then from the dowers.

FARM AND FIELD. Sclcction of a Stallion. Tho selection of a Htalllon that will form a satisfactory alliance for his mares Is a subject lhat will always con tinue to agitato tho minds of horse breeders. "Some peoplo leave this'to chance, and, as the "Live Stock Jour nal" points out, if fortunate in the first few Instances are wont to point trium phantly to the success of their absence of method, but it Is as certain as any thing can bo that there Is only one ter mination toa course of haphazard breed ing, and this Is failure. The breeder .who selects a horse for his mare simply because the animal has won some great prize, and totally regardless of the ques tion of pedigree, Is courting disaster In tho long run; but, provided that the breeding of the two animals justifies the cross, there Is far morb prospect of a winning sire getting a good foal than of a moderate horse accomplishing the feat.
