FREIGHT BILLS NOW HIGHER Ample Area to 8upport All Lumber Requirements if Land Could be Kept at Work Growing Varl ous Kinds of Trees. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) "Reforestation has not been taken seriously by the at Präge business» man In the United States," said Col. TV. B. Greeley, chief of the forest serv ice, United States Department of Agriculture, before the National Asso ciation of Wood Turners recently. "Reforestation has been looked upon as a fad quite removed from the prac tical Interests of the manufacturer, as something more concerned with parks or shade trees or rose bushes. World's Greatest Lumber Market. "Chicago Is the greatest lumber market In the world. Since lSfiO an average of over 2.000,000,000 feet of lumber lias come Into Chicago every year. In 1020 the figure was nearly 2,500,000.000 feet, 00 per cent of which went Into local construction and manufacturing Industries. In 1000 the average freight paid on lumber com ing Into Chicago was less than $3 per M feet. Since that time the local sources of supply for this territory have been exhausted one after an other. Lumber shipments have trav ersed greater and greater distances, and the average freight bill paid by the Chicago distributor has steadily .risen to more than $12 per M feet. "In other words, the increased trans portation charge on lumber shipments into Chicago, as a result of the exhaus tion of the forest regions surrounding it, represents a toll of $22,500,000 an nually. And while this hns happened there have accumulated In the Cen tral and Lake states nearly 23.000,000 acres of logged-off forest land which Is producing neither farm crops nor timber ; $22,500.000 Is the yearly tax which the wood-using industries and home builders, supplied through Chica go, pay for the Idleness of n largo part of the soli In the surrounding states which should furnish the natural sup ply for this district. This sum would plant every year 1,500.000 acres of land with forest trees. "This illustration may be extended to cover the four states of Illinois, In diana, Wisconsin and Michigan. These states consume annually between Scene in a Forest u the Pacific North west. 4,000,000,000 and 5,000.000 000 foet of timber in furniture factories, agricul tural Implements, wood-turning estab lishments and other wood-using Indus tries. Sawmills are excluded from this estimate, also the requirements for general construction and housing, and the- consumption of lumber on farms. The manufacturers referred to represent an invested capital of $760, 000,000 and enroll 260.000 skilled em ployees. Rapidly Exhausting Timber Supplies. "We are cutting our timbe. probably four times as fast as timber Is be ing grown. It is useless to decry the generous use which American Indus try hus made of our forests. It has contributed powerfully to the indus trial development and commercial su premacy of the United States. The forestry problem does not result from the liberal use of our forests, but from our failure to use our forest growing land. There Is an ample area of land lu this country, which is not tillable, to support nil of our tim ber requirements, all of our wood manufacturers, all of our home build ing und agricultural use of lumber, indeed, an even larger export trade than at present, if that land can be kept at work growing timber. Re forestation has become a commercial necessity of the United States." DEMAND FOR SMALL CAPONS Little Matter of Education Make Fowl of Lighter Breeds Quite Popular. There is already a considerable de mand for small mature capons. A lit tle matter of education will make the capon from the small variety, when fat and well finished, just as popular as the big heavy capon from the larger breeds for the very good and simp!« reason that the small family often use a five or six-pound capon to bet ter advantage than they can a leu or twelve-pound one. ! Store-keeping of the character that sheds light unto darkness and leads the customer out of the Wilderness of Doubt, is, we believe a welcome relief in keeping the public faith always in a store's good intentions. It's encouraging—greatly so—to have many who elect to trade here straight along, tell us how pleasant it is to be relieved of the doubt of quality when they buy—to know in advance that they will find their purchase often more than they expected—never less.
