Eeaumur, on receiviug the answer, concluded that the Bee had very nearly solved the difficult mathematical problem, the difference between the measurement and the calculation being so smaU as to be practically negatived in the actual con- struction of so small an object as the bee-cell.. Mathematicians were naturally delighted with the result of the investigation, for it showed how beautifully practical science could be aided by theoretical knowledge, and the construction of the bee-cell became a famous problem in the economy of nature. In comparison with the honey which the cell is in- tended to contain, the wax is a rare and costly substance, secreted in very small quantities, and requiring much time for its production; it is therefore essential that the quantity of.
