    "5th Experiment: Increase in openings decreased ventilation.
    We tried increasing the number of openings in the side of the box, but were not successful. One of the two candles went out at the end of 8 minutes. The other kept alight as long as the ventilator was in motion. I had therefore not obtained a stronger current by multiplying the openings."--Francis Huber, New Observations Upon Bees, 2012 edition, Volume II, Chapter VIII, pg 539
