BEAR RIVER VALLEY LEADER, THURSDAY, MARCH 7, 1929 How the Bee Makes Alfalfa Seed E. E. Hoot of Medina, Ohio, says in Gleanings in Bee Culture: "It was formerly supposed that bees performed no useful work in pollen-atin- g alfalfa blossoms." Indeed, one or two experiment stations went so far as to state that there was no evidence showing that bees had any effect in increasing the amount of seed from thefalfa: but Mr. Warren, living near Reno, Nev has demonstrated that with plenty of bees he can not only double, but more trail triple, the amount of seed grown per acre. His evidence is so overwhelming that there can be no possible doubt on the question any further because he produces carloads of alfalfa seed. It is a pretty safe rule to give out, when nature furnishes a large supply of nectar as in the case of alfalfa, that there is "method in her madness." She wouldn't without a purpose, and that purpose is to make more and better fruit, or seed, as in this ease. When nature desires the visitation of certain insects, she provides door steps as well as color, nectar, or pollen in her flowers; and sometimes she supplies all three of them as 6he does in the case of alfalfa. Everyone of the means she employs is calculated to attract bees or some other insect, and it is evident that nature considers bees not only necessary but essential; and therefore she puts out special inducements for bees. Mr. Warren has proved beyond doubt that nature, having put out these inducements, knows what she is doing. It is further clear from results recorded by observers, only a few of which have been cited in this paper, that of all insects which work on our common flowers for the purpose of gathering pollen and nectar, no species is more constant than our little friend, the honey bee. In 1927 the following articles appeared in Orchard and Farm: It has been discovered that the honey bee is of even more importance to the alfalfa than the alfalfa is to . at Every Monday Miss Adams' Beauty Shop Duart Permanent Waving No finger wave, no water waves and ringlet ends.

The little girl of Mr. and Mrs. Jasper Rudd is ill. Mr. and Mrs. George Archibald four-months-o- ld were visiting with relatives in Malad, Idaho, Saturday. Farmers here are taking much in terest in getting many of the rabbits that did so much damage to the crops last year. Under the direction of County Agent R. H. Stewart, poisoned hay is being put out daily and hundreds of bunnies are being slaughter ed. These rabbits are bringing good values, white furs 20 cents, black tails 10 cents apiece. Arrangements have been made to care for the rabbits during the week, which are called for by a fur company of Malad, Idaho, each Saturday. Not only is the fur valuable, but the carcass of the rabbit is used as a feed. Virgil Nish motored to Malad, Idaho, on business Saturday. He reports selling his farm in Tocatello valley and has purchased about 450 acres of choice land from Louis Zundel on the west side of the Malad river. Mr. Nish has been a very successful farmer and we hope the move will be profitable for him. h the economy of the)muhf (-w- four-cylind- er Bcdan Delivery $595; Light Delivery Chassis, $400; M Ton Chassis, $545; Chassis with Cab, $650.
