The •■ Old Keiiable" seen through New and Unreliable Olasses. By "COQITATOR." THE OLD HOME VS. THE NEW. How much nicer the old home of Cyula Linswik is than the new one ! Pages 353 and 354. So much of our progress on earth, in some mysterious wa}-, seems to lose for us more than it gains. When the Kingdom comes on earth I reckon people will live half the time in little booths made of the branches of trees. (In Eden they had absolutely nothing at all for house—blue sk)’ for one roj-al tent—and life one endless childhood). Upon the advent of sin it was that God in mercy allowed us to load ourselves up with labor-com- pelling humbugs, to keep us out of mischief. And how mad I was to find out. for the first time, that Cj’ula Linswik is not a real name—folks who live in glass houses have such an itch to throw stones. A SERMON CRITIC CRITICISED. Mr. Whitney, in criticising the sermon of Mr. Tichenor, rather gets into the familiar role of "sinful scofi^er." That sermon, however, is open to criticism, and would be a good one for somebody to criticise in a spirit of friendliness, and of love for the actual truth, no matter who gets pincht by it. Page 355. A farmer near me bega:i bee-keeping re- cently. His cash expense was, I think, two or three dollars (instead of the Whitney minimum of $10). Got quite a bit of surplus honey the next season—crosswise of the sections —and didn’t talie it off till the following June. That loss balance of $3,240,000 would simmer somewhat, I imagine, if adjusted to actual experiences. "WILL I BE MIST WHEN I ."^M GONE?" In my own familiar nest, page 356,1 see—"yl/Zi/him that time." The meaning of that looks rather mist-y.— When I am dead and gone shall I be mist f Rather too ambiguous logicallj’, and theologically. KNOWING E.4CH COLONY IN THE APIARY. That good husband, on page 357, I am at a loss to know whether he needs a club, or a bottle of the " Balm of Sym- pathy," Does he pocket the profits of his wife’s apiary ? or does she instantly spend’em for a new hat, and leave him to buy the apiarj- supplies ? The most startling thing in Mrs. Stow’s essay is the assertion that the bee-keeper should know every colony as he knows his own family. Prettj- lofty target for us to aim at. Not necessary to sup- pose that she herself fully reaches it. Those who call our attention to high ideals without full}- reaching them serve us a good term, sometimes. DRONE-REARING IN CONNECTION WITH QUEEN-REARING. I note that the excellent queen-rearing article of John Bodenschatz, page 358, follows the old regulation scheme of providing choice drones—a scheme rotten and self-defeat- ing, it seems to me. * Suppress the drones of the non-ap- proved colonies (yet they will rear a few ?i\& painpfr them), and cause the approved colonj- to rear hundreds of extra drones—with the inevitable result that they will be shabbily treated at home, and not one of them will be on time at the vital moment till abetter groomed male has " got there." Worse than waste of time to stimulate drone-rearing be- yond the bees’ own inclination, unless we are also willing to take the time to secure the young drones homes, a few in a place, in colonies having few or none. Bee-keepers are keen-witted in most things, why can’t they have common- sense in this matter? GERMAN-ITALIAN BEES FOR COMB HONEY. There must be something still much to be desired in our craft when both the Bee-Keepers’ Review and Gleanings in Bee-Culture can soberly countenance putting on extract- ing-supers, and then taking them off to put on sections. All this to get bees started above, A good strain of German- Italian hybrids will start at once (when there is any surplus coming) with no more inducement than a couple of bait sections. Why not keep just such bees, if comb honey is what you’re after ? Page 361. HUM.N N.4TURE AND HONEY-DEW. How much human nature there is in the D. M. R. clip- ping, page 366. Having satisfied himself that some honey- dew exudes directly from the leaf (as the editor of the British Bee Journal has announced himself satisfied) he now wants to put up $5.00 that there isn’t any other kind. NOTRE DAME DEVICE—HOUSE-APIARV KINK. If I get the correct idea of the Notre Dame wintering device (page 369) it accomplishes nothing for the winter’s good except to close the spaces at the ends of the frames— good as far as it g^oes, but hardly sufficient to account for such results as reported, one would think. The amount of difference we see between a box-hive and a good frame hive as to wintering helps us to a judgment in this direction. Probably excellence of packing and some other things con- tributed largely to the final result. It is certainly a re- markable result to realize 24 sections of surplus, with a total gain of 66 pounds May 6, on the nortli line of Indiana. The weights given indicate very large hives. Perchance we have rather a triumph of thelarge brood-chamber, kept so all the year round, than aught else. Note also that the one which last fall was 35 pounds hive, and 41 pounds con- tents by May 6, had regained the winter loss and 72 pounds more ! ‘ One would almost suspect that these bees, unknown to their keeper, had had opportunities for wholesale robbery somewhere. In the same article Mr. Chrysostom contributes one of the excellent little kinks which cost but little and amount to much. Attach to each corner of the octagon bee-house board projections, extending out three feet or so, making its horizontal section look like a paddle wheel. The effect of this is to isolate the colonies on one face from those on the adjoining faces. FEARS TO COMMENCE COMMENTS. Guess I’ll skip the Doolittle article, on page 370—not by any means because unworthy of comment—but you see if Dr. Miller comments on his questioner, and Doolittle com- ments on Dr. Miller, and I comment on Doolittle, and the editor comments on me, we shall have a "House that Jack Built." or a "Kid that Wouldn’t Go," or something. Glad to hear that a quart of bees ca?i be made to rear a good queen, however. B.’l.RRELS VS. TIN CANS FOR HONEY’. On page 371, C. P. Dadant gives us a model article in defense of our gawky country cousin, the honey-barrel— fighting on the losing side, I reckon, but fights well. He didn’t explain how s^ glue-coated barrel could have its staves spread and closed again and yet be as proof against honey- soaking as before. How easy it sounds to say, " Spread the staves a little and lift out the head !" and how provokingly stiff’ and contrary tho’se staves can be when inexperience tries the spreading and lifting 1 After a long time spent in disagreeable skirmishing you’ll forget and rest a portion of your weight on the head—down in she goes, ker-sqush ! Still no peaceful solution arrives, nor will the head come out any better than before. Before you get it out and laid on the’shelf it is in two pieces, and various little " do-fun- nies" the cooper put in shed out from between them. O, it can be done, but I don’t like to do it. That was a good shot at the 60-pound can—must be washt, and then it rusts inside. Very likely ; but, then, original sin might tempt us to set it on a warm stove until dry as a toast. Some would doubtless rather empty one barrel than eight square cans; but I think they would mostly be persons accustomed to the former and not to the latter! That there is no taking out and putting back in the use of cans, is a strong point in their favor. Cans rather need a special heating arrangement to liquefj- in them ; while the barrel calls lor kettle-room or pan-room enough to hold a barrel, and these pans or kettles would far better be water-jacketed. One set of utensils required is about a fair stand-off for the other, I take it. He was honest to tell us that we must not put the honey back hot if the barrel is used. DYING YOUNG AFTER LIVING LONG. And so Dr. Miller would die young, after having lived a good many years—pretty good ideal. Page 374. Still our efforts to compel our old and weary hearts to be lively about something, when they don’t want to be. are oft a trifle sad. Doubtful if that is really the best way. Simple rest in the bosom of Him who hath eternal youthfulness may work better than forced skipping around. CogiTaTOR.

It’s natural to look to other consumers for advice in making decisions. With Amazon.com, that community is various book enthusiasts. With massage therapy offerings, that community of people is other massage and bodywork users.Web visitors not going to feel confident that a business will supply unbiased facts on their web page. They’re not stupid. So they seek feedback from other buyers for the truth. They recognize that customers who have purchased previously will openly share their blatantly frank opinion about a business they’ve used and will tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth.Let’s focus on a specific kind of review web site: The ‘map site’. There are three big ones and the ones that we should pay attention to. StatsCan, the government branch responsible for census data in Canada, recently reported (2009) that 52% of Canadians engage in online window shopping. I’m sure that consumers in other places in the world do exactly the same thing.Search engines, of course, recognized this fact years ago and have put a lot of money into indexing and ranking local businesses. So if you went into Google and typed in a phrase like ‘massage Atlanta’ into Google, for example, and you will see local businesses prominently displayed. Do a search for a local service right now. You can see how the results for local businesses are tied directly into Google’s map functionality. Yahoo and Bing (Microsoft’s search engine) do exactly the same kind of thing. Notice that these listings are given special prominence on the search results page. This is important for you as a local business. Getting listed in Google’s local results is surprisingly easy. For the most part it’s a matter of filling out your listing fully and soliciting a few reviews.You might be surprised to find out that you may be listed there now without even knowing it.Your company name appears and is hyperlinked to your website. You can see that the phone number is likely displayed beside your website URL. And what’s really important is the links to reviews for that business. People have a tendency to look at reviews before they even look at your site.Take a look for yourself. Type ‘massage [your city]’ or ‘restaurants [your city]’ and take a look at the results. Click the reviews link and you are shown a Google business listing. This listing contains information that Google has found on that business from phone directories and other sites like review sites. If you look through that business page you’ll discover the review section. If you claim the listing as belonging to you, you can edit it, correct any mistakes and make your listing more appealing to get possible clients to make the decision to make call to your business.Fill out the information completely in the listing to grab people’s attention. The reviews on the page are invaluable for improving your credibility and a little work on your part will ensure that your reviews are positive and reflect well on you and your business.
