MORE WORK FOR BUSY BEES
Artificial Comb, Patented by a Woman,
t Enables Larger Output by
the Honey Producers.
Undoubtedly the most Important in invention
vention invention ever produced by a woman was
the machine for making artificial comb
foundation for beehives. The Idea was
originated by Frances A. Dunham, who
patented the contrivance In 1881, says
To produce material for comb build building
ing building is for the bee very expensive. It
uses up at least ten times as much of
her gathered products, bulk for bulk,
as Is required for honey making.
Hence the obvious economy of provid providing
ing providing her with a ready-made comb of
beeswax turned out from a machine.
Another advantage is that all the
cells of the artificial comb are made
of "worker" size, so that the eggs laid
In them by the queen bee (the mother
of the hive) produce workers only and
no idle drones.
The workers build up the cell walls
on the "ground-floor" pattern fur furnished
nished furnished for them, and (barring those
used for brood purposes) fill them
with honey. Being relieved of the
bother and expense of making their
own comb foundation, their output of
money is proportionately augmented.
Rings and Moons of Saturn.
The most distinctive feature of
Saturn Is his unique system of rings,
writes Albert D. Watson in Journal of
the Royal Astronomical Society of
.Canada. These are In the plane of
Saturn's moons, with the exception of
the outermost moon, which Is appar apparently
ently apparently retrograde in motion. The rings
consist of meteors.
From the center of the planet to
the circumference of Its outer ring
there are, first, the 36,500 miles of the
radius of Saturn. From the surface
of the sphere to the inner margin of
the inner rings is 9,000 miles. This,
which Is known as the crepe ring. Is
12,500 miles in width and runs into
the middle ring which Is 17,000 miles
wide. Outside the middle ring Is a
space of 1,000 miles before the oater
ring, 10,000 miles wide, Is reached.
Saturn has ten moons, only one of
which (Titan) is larger than ours. The
first four, like our own and some of
the moons of Jupiter, have been prov proven

towards their primary. As no excep exception

likely that it obtains in the cases of
