Canal Bottom-board Discarded

I used what is termed a canal bottom-board, until I found out it did

not pay expense, and have now discarded it, and succeed just as well.

It is generally recommended as a preventive of robberies, and keeping

out the moth. It may prevent one hive in fifty from being robbed; but

as for keeping out the moth, it is about as good an assistant for it as

can be contrived. It is a place of great convenience for the worms to

spin their cocoons, and some ingenuity of the apiarian is requisite to

get at them.
