Contents: (from t. p.) I. To manage bees in straw hives, with new constructed tops, at a small expence, as profitably and easily as with boxes --
II. In boxes of an improved and cheap construction, easily to be managed, and with so little disturbance to the bees, that all necessary operations may be performed without any danger --
III. To catch and secure the queen, or to fix her and a swarm to any place you please --
IV. To cause bees to quit a hive, and to be so tractable as to suffer themselves to be handled without stinging --
V. Several methods of swarming bees artificially --
VI. To cause a swarm to work in separeted glasses, without any hive; or in globular or other glasses, so that pure virgin honey may be taken when in its utmost perfection --
VII. To prevent or cause bees to swarm --
VIII. To take the honey and yet preserve the bees, with common hives only --
IX. To unite casts, swarms, and stocks --
X.A catalogue of, and observations on, the most proper flowers or pasturage for bees --
XI. An easy and certain method of preserving stocks in winter and cold springs --
XII. Several new and improved methods of extracting the wax from the combs, two of them without either straining or pressing; and each by a single operation: but more perfectly, and with far less trouble and expence of fuel than hitherto practiced.
Responsibility: by John Keys, Bee-Master.
