Socialist Fables. The Busy Bees. Oxok upon a time.— or it it may have been earlier— a hive of Bees became agitated over the presence of Drones, and met in confer once 'to consider the question. Thereupon a Wasp uprose and delivered himself of a stinging attack. u 'My friends,' said the Yellow One, I'm sick of listening to those disgruntled, dissatisfied, and blasphemous bees who are continually denouncing- the dear Drones. They .have no respect for the sacred Hive Life; they are friends of every hive but their own. Consider, my friends, ere you are misled by 'these crafty agitators. If it wasn't for the Drones you'd starve! You haven't enough Drones; that's what's the matter; that's why you can't cope with that horrible Overproduction which throws you out of work. (Cheers.) '* Just look at the matter from a practical point of view, putting aside, for the mo ment, the ; vague- buzzing of Utopian dreamers. What we do we find, my friends?
