Black and white cartoon depicting two men in an apiary. One man is standing over a beehive with ridiculous electrical equipment strapped to his chest and head to monitor or read the beehive. His equipment is attached to a large and complicated looking machine in the distance. A man in overalls and a hat is sitting to the right, speaking. The caption reads "Perhaps we had better face it. Your queen finding machine doesn't seem to [sic] practical." The signature "Clod" is in the lower right corner.
