BATES, Editor and Proprietor  KKQUKKNINfl   TKK    AIMABV  Serious losses are caused each year  in Canadian beekeeping by many beekeepers failing to replace, witn  young and prolific queens, the om  queens in their colonies. With our  more progressive beekeepers it is becoming a common practise to requeen  every year as young queens are more  prolific as a rule than queens more  than one year old.  In requeening the apiary it is not  advisable to allow the bees to , rear  their own queens promiscuously but  to adopt some method of queen rearing by which only queens from the  best strains arc. produced, thereby  improving tho strain of bees kept.  Although queens can be salely introduced'at any time during the active season, the best time of the year  to requeen is during ,a    honey ilow.  Ripe queen cells or mated queens can  be used.   ��������� The giving of   ripe, queen  cells is perhaps the easiest method ot  reueening but there is danger of the  queen cells being ��������� destroyed or    the  young queen being-lost on her mating  flight, leaving the colony    hopelessly  queenless.    The system recommended  is to rear queens by the cells or cup  method at the commencement   of the  main honey, flow, from clover   and to  have these queens, mated from small  nuclei, specially prepared    for    that  purpose.      As   the   queens - become  mated and laying the queens of the  colony-to be ,requeened    can be-   destroyed and. the young   laying   queen  introduced. Where only a few^.queens  are required and the /beekeeper    is  unable to rear his-own, they can be  obtained at a nominal price from    a  ��������� beekeeper    making   a   specialty    of  queen rearing. - ��������� -  Before introducing, a.new queen be  sure that the. colony is queenless and  that no queen cells arepresnt. ' Directions for introducting- accompanies each queen sent out.  The following method of requeening has given, entire satisfaction at  the Central Experimental Farm< at  Ottawa:��������� .  As soon as a colony is making preparations; for swarming    by    having  larvae in queen cells at the beginning  of the main honey flow from clover,  the old queen- is removed    from    the  hive and all the .queen cells destroyed.    Nine days-later all queen cells  are again destroyed and a young laying queen of selected parentage    introduced,   this    effectively    controls  swarming and    provides    the colony  with a young prolific    queen in time  to build up the colony    with    young-  bees for the winter    and    makes the  colony more-profitable, the following spring.    Where .a    beekeeper has  no spare queens on hand, or is unable  to obtain them, and    it is    necessary  for the colony to    produce    its    own  queen, one cell can ..be   .left   at    thb  ' time the old queen is removed from  the-colony but the colony should be  examined later -to see' if    the   young  queen-is safely mated    and laying ���������  Experimental Farm Note.

A.���������According    to       the    British  Board of Trade Journal,    a French  authority states that the sea-weed or  sea-wrack  possess the desired ..properties for the production   of . a good  paper pulp.    In addition  to fur'nish-  ing a crop that   is    very   abundant,  this sea-weed can be left   to dry   on  the    spot,    and,.,  before ' collection,  cleansed  by  a rudimentary  shaking  process.     For   transportation  it,, can  be put up in bales,    lt is announced  from Cape Town that arrangements  for the manufacture of   paper   pulp  from papyrus grass in Zululand are  ���������now in progress,    A Norweig'ui company as secured a    concession    over  several hundred square miles    from  which to reap all reeds and papyrus  grass, which are    considered'  to    be  excellent raw materials for the manufacture of paper pulp,    lt is estimated that it will   take    fully 41) ,000  tons of raw material to produce 6000  tons of pulp, but as    the    growth of  this grass is perennial, and the area  where it is found is so extensive,    an  abundance of raw    material    is . assured each year.   The papyrus has to  lie cut by hand in the same way    as  sugar cane.    The grass is dried, passed through a cutting- machine, and  then pressed and lime'washed.  How To Open A  Book.

A.���������George Bryan Brummell  (1788-1840), universally - known as  "Beau Brummell," was an Englishman of wealth and fashion, and in  his day the prince of dandies and exquisites. - He succeeded in becoming  an intimate companion of the Prince  of Wales, afterwards King George  IV., and by reason of this royal patronage was for many years regarded  by Court society as a veritable oracle  on all questions of dlress, etiquette,  deportment-and manners. Finally  losing the favor of his royal master,  after a quarrel, and finding iiimse f  head over ears in debt, he fled firom  his creditors?to the continent in 181G  settling first at Calais, where, reduced .to destitution, he lived by his  wit in reckless fashion.

The Degree Of Baronet  -   Q.���������-Please explain    the    rank ot  baronet.    Does it "give a seat in    th������  House of Lords and is it hereditary?  ,~���������M. J. P.  A.���������The decree of baronet is a  rank intermediate between the peerage p/roper and the knightage. It ig  linked with the peerage by virtue of  its being hereditary . and by beiiu;  conferred by patent alone: but in  other respects, it' has the 'appearance  of a. specialized order of knighthood.  Its designation is "Sir"���������-as .''.'Sir  John Smith, Bart." and it does not  carry membership' in the House . ot  Lords. It takes precedence of ail  other orders of knighthood, Knights  of..the Garter excepted. The wives  of baronets are styled "Lady." the  same as the wives'of. knights.

Company today (30th June). -This
is a place where Canadian grown berries are shut out ,of by virtue of an
adverse express rate. The present

from B.- C. points to prairie points.

an additional $2.70 per 100 lbs.
This with icing charges amount to
about $1.25 per crate for - strawberries, making the laid down price

For Canadian film fans to see "The  Great .'Day," the new British-made  Paramount picture which will be  snoW, at' the ..Abbotsford ' Theatre  next Wednesday .night, is' like making  a- tour of England, . France - and  Switzerland, for., splendid views of  each are sho.wn. The story itselt  calls for these scenes and consequently they were filmed with the aid of  the-supporting cast in these locales-  It is aii' exceedingly dramatic"story,  filled with thrills and heart appeal.  The various roles are portrayed by  prominent English players including  - Arthur Bourchier, Bertram Burleigh,  May- Palfrey arid Meggie Albanesi.  The picture was superby directed by  Hugh\, Ford from the adaptation by  Eve Uns'eil. '  This disease is first seen on Potato  plants about the latter part of July,  with the most severe' effects from  the middle of August to the first  week in September. The leaves exhibit a burning at their tips and margins, later the whole top withers and  the plant dies prematurely. This  condition is most noticeable in hot,  dry, windy weather and particularly  during periods of dry and sunny wea-  ther" following rain.  With regard to the cause    of this,  disease, there is much difference    of  opinion, and several   agencies   have  been suggested    as    responsible    for  the burning of the leaves.   '. The    effect of excessive evaporation of water  from the surface   of   leaves   in . extreme heat and    sunshine   with    the  consequent death of certain cells    in  the leaf, has been suggested    as the  cause of tip burn.    Other authorities  claim to have definitely   demonstrat-.  ed that the potato leaf hopper is - the  cause of tip burn;    thus   the   name  "hopper burn," which is also applied  to this disease.    More recent investigators associate.the leaf hopper with  the disease, but- claim that   there   is  some "specific,"    either    normal    or  extraneous, which is.transmitted   by  the leaf hopper   and    is   the   direct  cause of the burning ,on the.-potato  leaves     This was shown by the fact  that tip burn could be produced   by  inoculating macerated    leaf hoppers  into potato leaves.  The regular Bordeaux mixture  spray has been found' to be beneficial  in the control of this disease. Those  believing in extreme heat and sunshine as the principal causal . agency,  associate this control with-, the layer  of Bordeaux mixture on the leaf acting as a protection from severe.evaporation. . Others claim that it. des-  trr.ysTthe hoppers and again the spray  ,is also supposed, to act as a deterrent  for the hoppers.  In any case the Bordeaux mixture  iias been demonstrated as.capable of  arresting the development, of the  burning and this isbut further, proof  of the importance, of careful and  systematic spraying.of potato plants.

'  The car won the first prize at the  opening'of "the new speed course at  Beverley Hills, near Hollywood, California, on February 22nd; .1920. in  this race, the car made two hundred  arid fifty miles with-out a stop, averaging a speed of a hundred and three  and four-fifths railed per hour.  With Wallace Reid at the wheel,  however, the car shows that.it can  still do over a hundred per without  straining itself in the slightest, and  were it not for the-speedway rulings  would probably "still be - winning victories. ��������� ' -'  NOTARt PUBLIC  t  Marriage Licences Issued  REAL- ESTATE���������Money io iioan on &ood Farm Mortgages  "~  AN ARABIAN PROVERB  He who knows iV and , knows    not  that W know.s is ,a.si������ep\ A waken" him.  ��������� He! who knows, not* arid knows that  he. knows ri'o.t'iSvsimple.,.
