In this country beech is the fa
vorite maleiial of which lias reach
ed considerable propotions in the
United States according to the de
partment o f agrilculture, which
has just issued a bulletin on the use
of the wood. These shoes, the de
partment says, cost from 60 to 75
cents a pair and are good for two
years. They are worn by those
who have to work in cold or wet
places, such as tanneries, breweries
and livery stables, and by workmen
in steel mills and glass factories
who must walk on hot grates or
floors. Farmers, too, are classed,
among the users.
Beech wood is put to a very
much wider range of uses than the
average person would likely to sus
pect. The department says beech
enters into hundreds of articles
from hobbyhorse rockers t o but
chers' blocks. We walk on beech
floors, eat off beech picnic plates,
I carry beech baskets, play with
beech toys, sit on ly-eeh chairs,
and in dozens of other ways use
articles made of beech almost eve
ry day of our lives. Its freedom
from taste fits the wood especially
for articles which come in contact
with foodstuffs, and beech meat
boards, skewers, lard tubs, butter
boxes, sugar hogsheads, refrigia
tors, dishes, spoons, and scoops are
Only one species of beech grows
naturally in the United States, but
few trees in this country have a wi
der commercial range. It extends
from the Gulf of Mexico into east
ern Canada, and in prncticnllv eve
ry place where it grows it is cut
for market. The total yearly out
put of beech wood in the United
States is approximately 500 million
