How to Handle "Bees with Smoke. After twenty years' experience in handling han-dling bee3, let me say to the beginner not to attempt it without a smoker in good trim. Go in front of the hive and blow in the entrance three or f onr strong puffs of smoke, then rap with the knuckles or a small stick half a.dozen times, then two or three more puffs of smoke in the entrance; after which remove the cover of the super or hive, and raise the corner of the quilt and puff smoke in from the top, gradually drawing back the quilt or cloth, and cover the sections or frames with smoke. Remember that the reason some of the bees are cross and will sting is that they have had no smoke. Be sure that every bee in the hive has been smoked and you can handle them as yon please, writes a Pennsylvania correspondent correspond-ent in The American Beg Journal.
