Beekeeping In the Clover Ueglon, by E. F. l'hillips and George S. Deinutb Investiof the division of gations. While not all parts of the clover region are equally good, .there are few places. It is pointed out. Id which It Is not possible to keep bees with profit under proper management The typical clover region occupte the northeastern part of the United States, extending west Into Minnesota and south approximately to the OhU river and Mason and Dixon's line. It appears on tlie west coust in Washington and Oregon. In both east anO west tbe region extends Into Canada, some of the best portions being located north of the national boundary. Limited areas of less value are found outside these boundaries. The opportunities for beekeeping la this region, are not being utilized as completely as In some other beekeeping regions of the country. There are vast areas of the clover region not adequately covered by bees, and also many places where, because of the methods of beekeeping practiced, the beekeepers are falling to produce ths best possible crops. Beekeeping to be profitable In this region must be conducted with all possible skill. Better methods. It is believed, will result In a greater development of the Industry. Becaase of the presence of Eurojienn foul brood In some pars of the clover region, and especially because of the superior quality of the Italian race of lees, the beekeeper of this region will And It grest ly to his advantage to keep this vaItalian bees are able, undet riety, good management, to clean out ths larvae dead of European foulbrood. Not all strains of this race are equally good for this purpose, and the beekeeper should take pains to gvt tbo best.
