THE BEEKEEPER DYSENTERY AMONG BEES. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 30 October 1907

! T«E BEfittEFER OTSEMTEBY AMONG BEES. Dysentery Is a disease, writes 'Hybla' in the English 'Jt^xial of Horticulture.' due almost entirely to carelessness on the part of the apiarist. It is caused by the bees being kept in a badly ventilated and damp hive, and perhaps by unsuit able food given tbe previous autumn. The excrement on the alighting board of the Infected hive is a brownishyel low tint. Sometimes the combs are cov-.rd with it and the Stench from the hive is very bad. Remove tbe bees from the hive, and' put them in -a dean one with drawn out comb, containing sealed honey if possi ble. Feed them .with warm, thick syrup (take care not to burn It, for this also causes the disease), and add a nice cake of suitable candy. The operation should be carried out when the weather is suit able, but If the case be very bad, and the weather remains cold, work should be completed indoors. ^Needless to say, warm quilts should be' placed on the hives, and e sheet of brown paper put betwee...

A well-known authority, dealing. wMb points In Shorthorns, .says:— 'In Short horns, width between the eyes is indica tion of good breeding quality in both sexes.

Roman noses are seldom seen, and are not In favor, although they are almost In variably accompanied by unusual vigor of constitution. The bull's face should be of good width from the eyes to the nostrils; a fine muzzle is a sign of .deli cacy. Shorthorn noses are usually light and . clear in color, although occa sionally black and douded; the latter, although not evidence of Impure breed ing, are avoided as much as possible. by careful breeders.

JAPANESE VIEWS OF HOLIDAYS [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 30 October 1907

I JAPANESE VIEWS OF HOLIDAYS Tbe tyranny of fashion nowadays com pels those who can afford, and often those who can ill afford, to be at this | or that summer resort for a part at least ' of the hot season. One often wonders what real recreation of mind and body can be obtained at crowded seaside re sorts or spas. Men who say they have had a good time do not necessarily mean that in the result they feel clearer in mind and stronger for work; on the contrary, they are often to be pitied for their condition, mentally, physically, and flnandally. — ''japan Times,' Tokio. j A physician who has made a study of .the subject Bays that .singing psalm tunes to sick people is one of the n-orst things that can be done. Such music makes the patient feel that he is in the ' last stages. He loses hope and courage, and has much lesB chance of recovery. No wonder. It is far jollier to be sick than to haye to listen to psalm-tunes -the way they are generally sung.— 'Canadian Courier,' Toronto.
