Californian Honey. —The product of honey in California has grown from a single hive of bees, imported into that country thirty years ago, to 35,000,000 pounds a year.

There is, however, likely to be some disagreement over the division of the old Brigades’ funds.

The City Council and the Insurance Societies contend that, for the maintenance of these, funds, 10 per cent of the subsidies paid to the Brigades were devoted, and therefore the Brigades have no right to claim the money as their personal property, or at least any more than the portion they contributed by their own subscriptions.
