This has been so poor a honey-season-actually the fourth in succession -that many beginners may be tempted to give up. They may take comfort from the fact that even the experts have had poor seasons. Weather conditions have caused the bees to eat some of the honey they had stored for winter use, and, unless they are fed now, losses during the winter through starvation will be heavy. Some bee-keepers have experienced difficulty in procuring the sugar syrup with which to feed their stocks. In his talk today Reginald Gamble will tell them how to procure it. This syrup should be fed now so that the bees may pack it for winter. Later on they may be supplied with a cake or two of candy, and Gamble will tell listeners where they can get it.
