One Like Common Hive Preferred

If we expect to know what bees are doing in ordinary hives, we must

have one similar in every respect, in size, shape, number of bees, &c.

The construction of royal cells will be watched by most observers with

the greatest interest; now these are generally on one edge of the

combs. The bees leave a space half an inch or more between the edges of

the combs and one side of the hive, near half the length of it,

apparently for no other purpose but to have room for these cells, as

the other edges of the same combs are generally attached to the hive at

the bottom.
