Excerpt from The Honey Bee
The honey bee may well be counted as a friend of the human race, since besides furnishing large quantities of the most health ful sweet known, the commercial importance of which at this day is by no means insignificant, it is also of great value as a fertil izing agent to many of the crops produced by the farmer and horticulturist, obtaining results which could not otherwise be secured.
Beekeeping on a commercial scale is far from being a royal road to wealth as pictured by some, but requires as much labor, diligence and attention to details as many other lines of business. However, the thorough going apiarist, well adapted and educated to the business, given a good location and a favorable season, usually has no complaint to offer. As along other agricultural lines, weather conditions often exert an adverse in uence and poor seasons intervene, which necessitate extra care, fortitude and enthusiasm on the part of the beekeeper, to safely bridge them over.
