BEE WILL NOT STAND FOR FUMIGATION
Pembina, May 13. Mr. Wood, who lives a mile below Emerson and runs an apiary, experienced hard luck with his bees during the winter. For some time the house was quarantined on account of scarlet fever and when the premises were fumigated the one hundred bee colonies in the cellar in their quiescant state were thought to be in no danger. When they were liberated this spring sixty hives were found to be dead from the formaldehyde fumes.
