Synopsis

Excerpt from Rural Economy: A Treasury of Information on the Horse, Pony, Mule, Ass, Cow-Keeping, Sheep, Pigs, Goat, Honey-Bee, Poultry, Etc

Tm: natural history of this wonderful creature is ex trem and interesting; but there is little space here than a very brief sketch of it, as the practical part of the subject is more important to the reader.

The race of bees which we possess came originally from Flanders, and is considered the best, from its remarkable activity, industry, and gentleness of character, - though it can sting when provoked, having a lance for the purpose, which is a gift to it. From the Creator that has been denied to some tribes of the same general family., The Australian bees, for instance, are so defence less in being without the sting, that the native savages catch them, and suck the honey out of their bodies with impunity.

The oney produced by the labours of the bee is mentioned as one of the chief attractions of the land of promise to the wandering Israelites. The land to which they were journe g was to be a land flowing with milk and honey: honey is frequently referred to by the sacred writers as very desirable food.
