Our local paper runs a piece each day that reports the news for that date in history both locally and in the US and world. From todays local news:

"Seven stands of bees for sale at $3.50 per stand"

This calculator indicates that $3.50 in 1915 would be worth around $75 in 2010.

It would seem that a hive of bees today is probably worth twice ($150) what they were worth in 1915.

Who too? And what is he going to do in Hawaii w/out any bees?
Two people I hear. One is Lincoln Sennett from Maine. Don't know the other.

Think you could find something to do in Hawaii if you didn't have any bees? Says he only needs 100 hives for Arthur. Some special honey is produced there...$35/lb. Sounds like a Peter scheme, yes? And I told him so.

Mad scramble going on to snap up the yards. Everybody...DUCK!

Wow, a beek here just sold out on his 100 hives for $175 each. Bees, two deeps and a super. He was sold out by the time I called him. :(

35 years ago, a pack of smokes cost me 50 cents, today they are close to $5.
I've read where the $ is now worth a nickle compared to in 1913 when the Federal Reserve System was established.
