repair work. In point of fact, woven-wire fences are very
nearly perfect for the purpose for which they are constructed.
Of course, there are interior makes of woven-wire fencing,
but that made by the American Steel and Wire Co. is of the
very best grade, and yet is sold at a moderate price.

PLANET JR.
Nearly every one koows something about the Planet Jr. cul-
tivating tools. Either they bave used them or have seen some
one else use them, for they are used everywhere. The intro-
duction of these handy tools usbered in a new era in general
gardening, and they are fast displacing the old-fashioned hoe
and rake, even in localities where the growers are conserva-
tive. The readers of this journal are as well acquainted with
the merits of Planet Jr. inventions as we are, and consequent-
ly they need no assistance from us in the way of suggestions;
but others not so situated can be strongly recommended to send
for a catalog of these interesting machines at once. They are
great labor-savers where labor-savers are very necessary in-
deed. If you admire beautiful tools, the neatness and ingenu-
ity of these monuments of Yankee genius will strongly appeal
to you. Many gardeners regard it as a sort of religious duty to
scan carefully the catalog of the S. L. Allen Co., who make
this line, looking for novelties or perhaps improvements on
some tool they already possess; and it is safe for us to say tbat
all up-to-date market-gardeners keep in touch with this firm.

BURPBB.
Very few pames are better known in the business world than
that of Burpee & Co. It seems almost synonymous with cer-
tain kinds of seeds such as cantaloupes and sweet peas. In
respect to valuable novelties introduced in recent years, the
pame of Burpee stands pre-eminent, and no firm or even gov.
ernment experiment station is more anxious to improve the
quality and quantity of our garden produce than is the house of
Burpee. As is their wont, they bave sent their advertisement
here for the season of 1909, knowing, probably, that their
seeds are highly appreciated by the readers of GLEANINGS and
their friends. Of course, they issue an excellent catalog that
is well worth sending for-more especially so since the state-
ments therein are reasonably correct and truthful-something
which is not always true of seed catalogs.

WIRE FENCING.
We take this opportunity to call your attention to the full-
page advertisement of the American Steel and Wire Fence Co.,
which appears in this issue. This company makes wire-fenc-
ing on a scale that may justly be termed gigantic, and are,
consequently, able to do for customers what small concerns can
not do; that is to say, they make fences to resist the heaviest
attacks of the wildest buffalo or control the liveliest chickens
on the farm. A would-be purchaser can find the fencing of
this concern on sale almost anywhere in this country, and to a
great extent in other countries, which may be taken to indi-
cate the vast extent of their business. Good fences are a won-
derful convenience on a farm, and labor-saving besides. These
woven-wire fences are a vast improvement over the barbed-
wire fences which are so common; moreover, they are very
durable and near-looking. If properly erected they will im-
prison any kind of stock, and last a long time with very little

PUMPS AND SPRAYERS.
One of the first concerns in this or any other country to man-
ufacture sprayers for trees and crops was the Deming Co., of
Salem, o. They have always maintained that lead, so that it
now stems useless to praise the pumps and sprayers made by
them. Every one who does any spraying knows of the supe
rior character of all their implements, and their fame is world-
wide. For years they have maintained a space in these col-
umns, and, so far as known to us, none of our readers have ever
complained of the treatment accorded them by the Deming Co.
On the contrary, there are many of our subscribers who praise
the wares of this company very highly. We feel sure, there.
fore that any one desirous of buying a spraying machine or
pump can not do better than correspond at once with the Dem-
ing Co., with a view to making a purchase.

500 REPORTS SHOW

GLEANINGS IN BEE CULTURE

Valuable
FOR GENERAL ADVERTISERS.

We have long known that GLEANINGS IN BEE CULTURE is an excellent medium for all classes of general advertising. We are now prepared to prove this statement by actual reports from many subscribers selected at random from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

THESE REPORTS SHOW-
The majority of our readers subscribe to other papers.
GLEANINGS, however, is the favorite family paper.
Advertising columns are read as carefully as the rest of the paper.
Ninety-five per cent of our subscribers use breakfast foods and canned goods.
The average bee-keeper's family consists of four persons.

Fifty per cent of our readers are farmers.
Fifty per cent are divided among every other calling as follows:
Miners,
Dentists,

Blacksmiths,
Clerks.
Laborers,

Postmasters,
Masons,
Gardeners,

Contractors,
Nurses,
Merchants,

Housekeepers,
Millers,
Policemen,

Lumber Manufacturers,
Foremen,
Teamsters,

Fruit-growers,
Bankers,
Engineers,

Station Agents,
Stockmen,
Druggists,

Harness-makers,
Teachers,
Clergymen,

Manufacturers,
Printers,
Surveyors,

Photographers,
Salesmen,
Physicians,

Letter-carriers,
Florists,
Carpenters,

Poultry-raisers,
Painters,
Machinists,

Telegraph Operators,
Dairymen,
Die-makers,

Real-estate Dealers. We doubt if any magazine can make a better showing than the above; and surely this list will prove large buyers of general merchandise. The farmers who keep bees are of the better class—the thrifty and well-to-do who have plenty of money to spend. Beekeeping is often merely a side line, and the profits are large for the investment.

It has been argued that GLEANINGS is not a good medium for general publicity advertising. The fact is that our subscribers are about equally divided between those who buy by mail and those who patronize local dealers, and of the latter class fully ninety per cent ask for advertised goods.
