tower at Tunnel square lias begun to
toll the hours, and the tubular ehimee
which are connected with the clock
mark the quarter hours by repeating in
measures of four notes the famous
"West minster Chimes."
The set in the Keney Tower, snys the
Hartford Courant, is made up of live
tubes which hang in u frame suspended
by Manila tarred ropo, anil are struck
by hammers operated by clock work.
The largest of the live tubes is 0 feet
6 inches in lonffth und 5 inches in diam
eter, weighs D&i pounds, und is keyed to
A natural, This tube is simply for the
striking of the hour, nnd has nothing to
do with the production of the chime
music. The next smaller of the tubes
is four inches shorter and weighs
pounds. The key of it is B natural, and
It is the heaviest of the chimes. The
other three tubes arc: B natural, 7 feet

160 pounds, nnd (I sharp, fi feet fi Inches,
The tubes are of soft brass and are
drawn in the usual manner by hydraul
ic pressure, the tone being governed by
the length, the diameter and thickness
of the metal forming the tube. The
tone is soft and melodious, and has a
radiui of about one mile under favor
abla conditions. The vibrations last for
two minutes, whereas the vibrations of
the largest bell last for only one niin-ate.

One would naturally suppose that
thera Is but little If any difference In
bees, and that one hive of bees was Just
as good as another. More particularly
would this supposition exist when the
sees are of the same variety or race.
While It la true that certain races f
bees, as a whole, are much superior
in nthm races, vet it Is also a
fact that some colonies e any race are
far superior to other colonies. As it
la now conceded that the Italian bees
are superior to oil other races as a
whole. It Is also a fact that we not only
And some colonies of this variety In sny
apiary, but we can find whole aplarlea
considerably In advance of others In
usefulness. The expert apiarist under
stands this fully, nnd knows It Is
brought about by careful breeding.
The breeder of line stock of any kind
selects his best specimens to breed
from, and therefore Improves his herd.
Now the apinrist Is not behind In the
lenst In this respect, but selects his best
stock In breeding and makes as rapid
strides In this direction as anybody.
The principal point in breeding bees
renters upon the queen. The apiarist
hns under his control the breeding of
queeni and enn rear them from sny
other queen he has In his npiary. but
he cannot control her mating with the
male bee, as this is beyond his reason.
As it is well known that the queen is
the only female bee In the hive, nnd
lays nil the eggs that produce each nnd
every bee therein, hence, to change the
entire stock of the hive it is only net
essary to Introduce n iew queen to the
colony. Two colonies of bees having
the same traits of character, markings,
etc., cannot be found, but when till are
hatched from epifs of the same queen
they will have peculiarities of their
own, ns a colony, not found in another.
For example, some colonies are more
industrious and will store more honey
than others, even with a less number
of bees. Some are cross, and some ge:i
tle. Some are robbers and some are
good citizens. Pome incline tosuarm.
others do not under the same condi
tions. Some breed more rapidly and be
come very strong In numbers, while
rdlicrs do not attain great strength.
Some are pood comb honey producers,
while others nre better nt filling the
extractor. These nre but n few of the
numerous different characteristic,
found in bees, hence the breeds may
rapidly develop and attain too marked
degree, in a short time, too.nny of these
polntl sought for. A. II. Duff, in

These grand wines of Spccr's that have mellowed in flavor in the
course of years ot ripening, are the choicest wines in this country and
can only be obtained by paying a price that is higher than new wines
from western vineyards. Mr. Speer deems it necessary for a healthy
wine that it be allowed years to mature in wood to get rid of its
coarse parts; with this object he keeps his wines several years in
fumigated cellars and frequently racks before bottling or offering for
sale. The reputation of Speer's wines as a valuable medicinal and
family wine extends around the world.

Tle l3porlnnce of Variety.
When the flock has received no grnln
hut corn the hens soon wgn to refuse
it. This mav be particularly noticed if
a small quantity of oats or whent be
thrown before them. They will atonee
eagerly seize the grains of outs and
wheat, leaving the corn untouched.
This indicates that the hens require
something else than that which they
derive from the corn, such as the phos
phates or nitrogen. After feeding outs
or wheat awhile the hens will leave 1
those grains and eat largely of corn.
The proper method, then, is to keep a '
variety, using corn as a portion of the
ration in winter, but omitting it iu j
the summer. Among the grains we
may mention wheat, corn, oats, barley j
and buckwheat, the best results being
