When he became editor of the Observer
on the eve of the State Democratic

The boys are grooming their calves -p

BEES NEED CAREFUL
ATTENTION DURING FA LI.
The value of next year's honey
crop is largely dependent upon the
care and management given the bee
colonies this fall.
If the colonies are carried through
: the fall and winter in good shape,
they will be ready for heavy production
in the spring, said Frank Meacham,
entomologist at State College,
j Give ail colonies a thorough exam!
inatior, in September, he urges beeI
keepers, and ray careful e.ttention to
the condition of the queen, amount
of hcr.ey, number of bees, and space
for brood rearing and nectar storage.
Young queens are best, since they
produce a large amount of brood in
August, September and part cf October.
Bees produced at this time are
the ones which survive the winter.
Three-banded or leather colored
Italian queens, which can be purchased
for 50 cents each from reliable
breeders, are most desirable, Sfeacham
stated. Replace all queens over
a year old, or black and failing
A colony which does not contain
the equivalent of two or three Hoffman
frames full of brood on September
1st is hardly worth wintering
by itself. Often such colonies are not
able to survive the winter.
Weak colonies can be united with
strong ones by placing them together
with a sheet of newspaper between.
By the time the bees eat holes
through the paper, they will have become
acquainted with one another
and will not fight.
Golden rod, aster or iron weed, and
hear tease or smartweed in many sections
of tho State will yield a few
pounds of honey in the fall. Thi may
be added to the winter feed supply,
placed on the. market, or transferred
to colonies whose food is short, Meacham

Hamilton Addresses Meeting
In a speech before a mass meeting |;
of Republicans which followed the:',
executive meeting, John Hamilton,
general co- nsel of the Republican na- i
tional committee, criticized the ad-'
ministration of President Roosevelt
tor its policies and expenditures.
Hamilton said the administration |
had been marked by "pretty phrases j
and empty platitudes" and that at no j!
time had the president "a definite,
program in mind."
Hamilton asserted that the United |
States, from the founding of the |
country to the inauguration of Wood- |
row Wilson, had spent only $24,000,000.000,
including every emergency, I
whereas President. Roosevelt had!
f spent that much in two and a half
The speaker forecast fundamental

c'J a mode of expression for those
f | who still adhere to Americanism and

A number of Watauga County ReL
publicans attended the meeting.
Is there any objection to putting
e poultry scratch feed in the litter .'
I, Answer: This practice is unsanitary
and dangerous to the flock from
aja health standpoint. The litter in the
d! poultry houses, as a general rule, is
y | not changed as often as necessary,
s I and thus becomes soiled with the
| droppings. As this mixture of litter
hjand droppings increase, the danger
r | from y "seascs also ino
. crease. Worm eggs and other interh
r.al parasites are picked up with the
d : scratch feed together with disease
II. germs and the result is an unhealthy
j and low producing flock.
i- j through the moulting period are cone
I sidered most profitable. Dearstyne
11 j continued. An abundance of good
r-. feed will help keep the birds in lay
| and shorten the period required for j
g j moulting.
