Excerpt from The Honey Bee: A Manual of Instruction in Apiculture This treatise is designed to make the practical management Of an apiary plain to those whose acquaintance with the subject is limited, and to direct such as may find in it a pleasant and profitable occu patiou to a system Of management which may be followed on an exten sive scale with the certainty of fair remuneration for the labor and capital required. With this Object in view the author has deemed it best to treat the natural history Of the bee but briefly, and also to give little space to matters which are in question, or to different methods Of accomplishing given results, or to such-as are only adapted to a limited portion of the country, but rather to explain one settled way widely applicable and which will lead to success. The methods advised here are such as the author has found practical during an extended expe rience, yet in regard to numerous details many works - both foreign and American - have been consulted, none more freely than Langstroth on the Honey Bee, revised by Chas. Dadant Son, and Bees and Bee Keeping, by Prof. F. R. Cheshire. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
