to increase the speed of these,

Greatest Lumber City.
More lumber was cut in th<
United States last year than ir
any other year in its history
The ciormous amount of 37,
550,736 board feet was produced
and the mill value of this wai
$629151,388. In addition, ther<
were produced 11 ,858,260,00(
shingles, valued at $24,155,555
and :3,812,807,000 lath, valued al
$11,490,570. On the whole, it ib
safe to say the present annua
lumber cut of the United Stateu
appr'oximates 40 billion feet, ani
that the total mill value of tla
lumber, lath and shingles eac2
year produced is not less thar
$700,000,000. These figures givc
some idea of how vast is th<
lumber industry and how greal
is the demand for its products.
IA glance at the kinds of lun.
h~er produced shows very clearly
the passing of white pine ani
oak, one the greatest softwooi
and the other the greatest hard

grown. Since 1899 the cut 'of
white pine has fallen off more
than 40 per cent., while that of
white oak has fallen off more
tl an 36 per cent. To-day yellow
pine leads all other woods in
amount cut, while Douglas flr
---and this will be a surprise tc
many---comes Fecond. Since '9<
the cut of Douglas has in,
creased 186 per cent. Louisiana
is the foremost yellow pine state,
with Texas, Mississippi and Ar
kansas following in order.
Washington produces by far the
greotest amount of Douglas fir.
A comparison of the lum ber
producing states shows that
since 1899 there have been many
changes in their relative rank.
Washington, which in 1899
stood sixth, now leads, while
Wisconsin, which eight years
ago lead all others, is now third.
in the same period Oregon, Lou
isiana, Mississippi, Idaho and
California made great strides as
lumber-producing states though,
on the other hand, the amouni
produced in Michigan, Wiscon
sin, Minnesota, Georgia, Ken
tucky, Tennessee, Missouri, In
diana and Ohio fell off any
where from 29 to 54 per cent.
The - highest-priced native
woods are walnut, hickory ani
ash, and the cheapest are larc
and white fir. From the fact
however, that since 1899 th(
average increase in the price o:
lumber has been 49 per cent., i
will not be long before cheap
woods are few and far beween
