First Objection Cost Of Construction

The first obstacle in the way (after the right is obtained) is the

construction. Let's see; we want inch boards to make the shell,

three-quarter inch boards for the tops and bottoms of drawers, half

inch for sides, hinges to hang a door, glass for back of drawers, tubes

for the egress of the bees, and slides to cut off communication. It

will be necessary to get a mechanic, and a workman too. Those 108 holes

that must be bored, _must match_, or it is of no use to make them. But

few farmers would have the tools requisite, a still less number the

skill and patience to do it. What the cost might be by the time a hive

was ready to receive the bees, I could not say; but guess it might be

some three or four dollars.
