Lev. 19:lt.. :
1 THOSE POOR, DYIG HONEY-BEES
t i - A nice, humane, sympathetic man came to the States
: man off ice yesterday afternoon hunting for the honey bee
nut of the force, to complain'about the dead and dying bees
' in the. United States National bank window
And he wanted this paper to get after the bank, officials
V for allowing such a tragedy to go on. '.
The nice man did not see the bee nut, and he did not give
his name or address, so it is hoped he will read the following:
A .full sized colony of Italian bees has about 100,000
bees. i. Their queen, in the working season, lays about 3000
eggs a day; so about that many new bees are born every ,24
hours. The life of a worker (female) bee in the busy.season
f Is about six weeks; she" literally works. herself to death; Is a
-' working fool, i S0 not counting the drones ; (males) R .which
do not work and liv longer, some-1500 to 2000 worker bees
in such a colony die each day; die of old age, if you want to
put it that way. 5 t ' ? " .
. Dd you get it? j,
. The .-bees in the bank window were put there, for a
week's exhibit of the bee industry, by H. M. Mead, our bee
.king. It is only a small hive; rather, a small half a hive. It
had about 6000 bees on Monday, with a pure bred Italian
queen. This queen "would fay about 3000 eggs a da, if she
saw room for such an increase. The quarters being cramped,
she has been laying about 1000 eggs a day. So about 1000
new ? bees a' day are born in the bank show window space.
J And the bees that are dying of old age are comparatively few,
' s Vku.Ai-ok aw ov?iAontr -faA anil gra nnt wrkilrnrf vnlv
spending part of their energy trying to get through the
plate.vglass window to go out and work. Probably not more
than a tenth the number are dead or dying that would be
passing or passed on out in the open, with sunshiny days
and plenty of honey flowers on which to work ';
And so there will be a good many more bees inr the hive
when it is taken away, today or tomorrow or Monday' than
Were in it when it was brought for exhibit the first day of
, this week; 1 . "' sl
' The nice man who came to complain about those poor,
flying bees ought to study bee lore. He will find it most
interesting. ; , ' - '
EYeryone in this fruit district should1 study bee lore
It should be taught in our schools---
' , For we must have; honey bees to pollinate our fruit blos
soms. Without pollination fruit growing cannot be a success

ARE YOU A
Wlute the Salem. Mass,; debaters are with us is a good
time to mention a discussion that is going on as to what is
a Puritan ; . r . r
; : For a Puritan is generally thought of as a thin (whoever
heard of a fat Puritan?), austere person who frowns on all
fun-atid gaTetyCandt persecutes if possible all persons , who
dare to disagree with him on religious matters.
4,,.,But Stuart I?.. Sherman, one of our modern essayists,
disagrees with this estimate and quotes from early docu
ments to prove 'that the Puritans who helped form the early
history of our own United States; were not only men of great
f courage, but foresighted men, embued with the average or
;- perhaps a trifle more than the average amount of tolerance,
and with a lively affection for family and friends ,
i ," 1 li&tt in that respect, they were like the pioneers who
f " laid the foundations of our own Oregon.. So the two Salems
hark back to people with like spirits ; men of parts," the pick
. of the older communities from which they, sprung,' and their
women of the same type. . 1 " v r;i V'-Z ittwT-
' " And Mr. Sherman also contends that we; have had Puri
tans in all ages and that, the very first one' was that faraway
ancestor of ours, the anthropoid ape who first - decided to
walk upon his hind legs and founded the human race." - Here
are some of the contentions of
'. "Dissatisfaction with the past, courage to break with it,
.a vision of fa better life, readiness ' to accept discipline. in
order to attain that better;$fejiand a serious, desire, to lnake
that better Jife prevail a desire reflecting at once his sturdy
individualism and his clear sense f or the need of social solid
arity. " In these respects all true Puritans, in all ages and
places of the world, are alike. Everyone is dissatisfied with
the past; every one has the courage to revolt; everyone has a
vision; everyone has a discipline; and everyone desires hi
vision of the better life to prevail.
"If we have inherited, not the Puritan heirlooms, but the
lmrsr Puritan tradition, we enter into the .modern spirit . .
Th? modern spirit is, first' of all, a free spirit open on all sides
to. the influx of truth, even from the past. ! But freedom is
riot its vcnly characteristic. & The: modern spiritf Is ;rnarke4
further; by an active curiosity, which grows by what it feeds
Upon; and goes ever inquiring

"Since it sceks'.only the best, it Is, by, necessity, also a

Clay . Wales had no Idea of
where they would go it. his mother
should happen to be disagreeable
about; their, staying there for a
few .days. t He. didn't think she
would be. however. He Imagined
she would .be rather glad to see
him back. It. was the first time he
had been away from her so long
since he was in the army. ' And
even though at times they 1 got
along at' swords' points he know
that she loved him. He always won
these litUe wars, anyway, as child
dren usually do. And he loved her,
after a filial fashion.
"I hope we won't Inconvenience
your mother," said Eve doubtingly
as the tazicab neared the Wales
bungalow. ; . 1
;.- "We won't. We won't be there
but a few days, anyway.
"I wonder if ever a married
cou pie were so unprepared to live
together! You'll think we " HAD
to get married." .. .; ,
"Perhaps that is what other .peo
ple do thlnkr," Clay .remarked,. bAlf
aloud. ., ..!. t- .titH .o ;
Eve whirled around to look at
him; flushing. He i broke into
laughs, i'-'! .1. -ijk . ,
"Clay! You don't tKRik " ' they
"Of course not, dear,' I" was just
His wife's frown did not disap
pear. "People might tnink tnai.
We did get married in a rush.
Ton never can tell what people
are going to say."
"Ah-h! Let 'em think it if they
want to. we don't care That's
as good a reason for getting mar
ried as any other, and better than
the one most persons have. At
least R's a reason."
Eve didn't understand what he
was driving at with this remark,
and did not reply. She still was
worried. She knew how utterly
foundationless such malicious gos
sip was. And there were girls like
Mary Sullivan who would start
just such a story.
The taxi stopped with a jerk in
front of the destination. Clay
thought he saw a figure get up
and leave the window of the
house. What if his mother locked
jihe door pn them? He was so tak
en up with this thought that he
gave the taxi driver seventy-five
cents more than be Intended to.
The curt thanks he got for the tip
did. not make him regret the mis
take the . less. He hated having
to tip people.
The door opened as they rang.;
"Here we are, mother, dear."
Eve stepped forward to kiss her
mother-in-law. Mrs. Wales submit
"We want to pile In on you for
a lew days, momer. jusi a xew
days. We're going' to look around
today -for a place to live in."
Eve regarded the elder woman
apprehensively. Mrs. Wales did
not respond Immediately. "I guess
that'll be aH right. You'll hare to
wait though until I get the room
In-order. I've been using it. for
'I11 be glad to straighten it for
you. Mrs. Wales. We aren't going

'iClay wanted to lo that. His
mother, to save herself work, did
not observe many of the formali
ties which, usually attend the serv
ice of food, i Usually she served
her husband and son their meals
in the kitchen, not bothering to
lar ; thei table ia the dining-room.

crushingly. "Your father is sat
isfied to eat in the kitchen. On
Sundays, however, dinner was Al
ways, served in' the dining-room.
Now. ts Clay began to consider
it, ne was sorry . that ' he ; had
brought Eve here! His mother was
not always as presentable In. ap
pearance" as ; she- happened to be
this morning, and sometimes when
she was not feeling well, the house
got in a rather, disorderly shape.
He didn't want Jils bride to kttow
that he had been brought -np In
such surroundings: He .was still
trying to give Ere a better Impres
sion of him than "she was likely
to- have, if she saw things aa they
really were. It Is always so; In
- f Where shall we ' look . for a
place T" . Eve aked suddenly.
"Well Tjiveno' take a furnished

"Some real estate agency , will
have lots of I places listed.;-,. And
they'll take 'us around in n auto

the easiest, Ij guess."
T "Yes J : . . But we'll have to be

"I don't knowj I Son't know
what houses cost.f
; "Well, they say your rent
shouldn't be more than a fourth
of your Income, but that seems
too much to me."
"Seems to me like fifty dollars
a month ought to be enough."
"I don't think bo.... Oh, Clay,
If I work it'll be much easier for
us to get along.";
"I don't think i you ought to
work," he replied but hot as forte
fnlly as he had been sayfng it.
Ere patted his; hand. "I'm go
ing back to the office Monday.
Now, that's settled."
Clay did not protest. If she were
working, there wouldn't be any
danger of her running around too
much . . . .On the other hand, there
was John Ingate. .But he had lass
apprehenslveness : on that score
now. .He wondered if John Ingate
was still in Chicago paying court
Mo Ilss Johnstone,;
, "I think I'll run down to the
office now for a little while," Eve
spoke up, "to1 see how things are,
and let them know - I'm coming
back." She rose and kissed him.
"IH be back In an hour of two."
(To be continued.)'

Eve when they are alone in his
