In accounting for the prevailing low

there are any number of causes, and
advances tne proposition that a new

tho present low price of wheat Is the
natural result of the prevailing finan

MAPLE FLOOR I NO.
That Wood Being Used to a Consider-
able JCxJent In the East.
Among tho noteworthy features of re
cent lumber trade development In the
east Is the rapidly Increasing demand
for maple flooring. Improvement in the
method of manufacture has kept pace
with the growth in demand for product;
or perhaps It Is more exact to'say that
the recognition of maple flooring has
been forced on the attention of consum
ers by the enterprise of manufacturers
in turning out a iierfected product and
urging It on public attention. A few
years ago all the maple flooring used
was worked out on orders by a few
planing mills. The hardwood dealers
carried maple strips In their yards, and
had them dressed and matched when
they happened to receive an order for
flooring. Now great manufactories have
been established for the sole purpose of
producing maple flooring. Exact, strong
and swift machinery has been Invented
to work out the stuff. The boring ma
chine has rendered nailing easy, and
now comes the end matching Invention.
Maple flooring has come to be regarded
as the thing Indispensable in most pub
lie buildings, and la used largely In pri
vate dwelllngn. Such an extent has the
demand reached that the larger dealers
are obliged to make contracts for mill
ions of feet far in advance of require
ment, the same as Is done with pine, or
any other wood of extensive sale and
consumption In the building trades and
The supply, however, is far from in
