The11bottom, O, of the hive `is movablefor the purpose ofcleaniug'the 1hive,`11 removiug"lth,185e., and 1 alsoforhiving natural swarms of bees.
11 Anopening extends from side to side of 1'the hive l 1 above1 the bottom 0,1ivhich1 opening forms the beef entrance to the hive, and said entrance is regulated by means of the blocks D11), which slide through 1 1 holesmade in thesidesof the brood-chamber.

one to the other, and any frame can be removed withont disturbing the rest.y
On top` of the brood-chamber A islpllaced the division board G, to keep the bees in the brood-chamber until they have filled it. 1
`In this division board are openings covered with Wire-cloth d, which give an upwardventilation.
This board rests upon wire points f j, as shown in ig.i4, thereby preventing the bees from fastening it tothe brood-chamber with honey or wax.
The division board is intended to be removed when the bees are Wantedto Work in the surplus-chamber, and allow all the .heat from the broodchamber to arise and aid the bees above in making comb.
` Above the' brood-chamber anddivision-board is placed the surplus-'chamber H, provided with frames or racks E E,constructed in the' same manner the comb-frames E E, with the addition of a central vertical bar, g, as shown in iig. l.
This surplus-chamber is arranged for removing the surplus honey without disturbing the bees.
In the winter season the surplus racks E are to be removed, and the space filled with dry and light sub- `stance to absorb the moisture and keep the bees dry and healthy.
The frames E and E' are all provided at their upper ends with pins or Wire points for suspending them "from ledges formed in their respective chambers; and
1cloth, for the purpose 'of admitting heat from lthe brood-chamber below. 1
Through the center passes a partition, k, andfour chamberslJ are suspended inthe same, said chambers having wire-cloth bottoms, as shown Vin iig. '7;
In each chamber is a comb-rac K, to be filled with brood-comb. There is also in each chamber a feed-box or trough, m, to which, admittance is gainedl 1. The movable bottom G, and 'grooved entrance blocks D, in combination with the brood-chamber A,
lall substantially as described.
mm, and entrances m' n, all substantially as and for the purposes herein set forth.
In testimony that we claim the foregoing we have hereunto set our hands this 10th day of October,
