|A Hive of Busy Bees | Effie M. Williams, 1931||Story|
"I have been thinking about another kind of bee," said Grandma. "Do they sting, like the bees in the orchard?" asked Joyce, with a little shiver. "Their stings are much sharper," answered Grandma, "and the pain lasts much longer. There is a hive full of these bees."

|Lift Up a Standard | Robert L. Berry, 1914||Bible/Word|
