Although I have given to the book the title of Scientific queen-rearing, there is much in it that is not scientific, as the reader will soon discover, and some lofty minds may pass it by in disdain 011 this account.
It is not a manual, giving in terse, sharp periods, the great est amount of accurate information in the briefest space. My style, I fear, is often like my bee - yard, which in looks is irregular, while it attempts something useful. I never could be pinned down to systematic work. I always did like to work at the bees near a gooseberry-bush, full of ripe, luscious fruit, or under a harvest apple-tree, where an occasional rest could be enjoyed, eating the apples which lay so temptingly about. Do we not all need an occasional relaxation from the severer duties of life If so, the rear ing of Queens for our own apiary, gives us a change from the all-important struggle for honey, whereby we can get money.
