It is stated that two agriculturists of the department of the Ver, France, recently discovered their bees feeding upon cakes of oil seed, which had previously been subjected to the oil press, and which was being beaten up into a paste with water, to be used as manure for potatoes The bees were afterwards allowed abundance of this food, and their owners have since been rewarded with nearly ten times the usual increase in their productions of the insect This is a piece of valuable information to our beekeepers, and we should advise them all to try the experiment
