BEEKEEPERS
SUPPLIES

You may have a catalog of supplies; but if you haven't ours for 1912 you have missed something really worth while, and should get one at once. It is the largest and most complete ever published-more than a mere price list of supplies-a book that every beekeeper can read with pleasure and profit. Beginners will find answers to many perplexing questions, and advanced beekeepers timely suggestions that will save them money. Old customers are writing us frequently letters like the following:

Your catalog for 1912, designated ROOT'S BEEKEEPERS' SUPPLIES, is received,
and I certainly thank you for this book. I have had your catalog on my desk for
years, and have used Root's supplies all along. I note the enlargement and Im-
provement in your new catalog, and notice many things I expect to add to my apiary.
Crystal City, Texas.
C. W. Cox.

Our catalog this season also gives a full and complete list of books and booklets which we can supply. Many of these booklets are free, which doesn't mean that they are not worth reading, but simply that we want you to be informed on the subjects of which they treat. Send for a catalog, and check those in which you are interested.

Quick Deliveries

Next to having the best goods made, there is nothing so important to the beekeeper in the busy season as to have goods delivered just when they are wanted most. It isn't always possible to ship goods from a distant factory and have them reach destination within a day or two, as is sometimes necessary during the height of the season, but with distributing-houses located in the large shipping-centers we are able to supply beekeepers everywhere, with no loss of time and with minimum transportation charges.

Send Your Hurry Orders

to any one of the offices listed below, and let us show you what we can do for you in point of service. Cars are going to these branches at the rate of two or three a week, so the stocks are new and fresh, and we usually have just what you want. If it isn't in stock at your nearest branch our manager will include your order with his specifications and you may have your goods come in the next car, thereby saving on transportation charges and getting the goods in better shape than you would by local freight.

Whatever Your Wants

we can supply you, and, of course, there is no question about the quality of our goods. The name Root" in connection with bee-supplies means the best of every thing in this line, and the best is always the cheapest, as our customers will testify. If you have never used our supplies you should make a trial of them this season. Once used, we are sure you will want no other.

I have just received my goods, order No. 10739. I am more than pleased with them.
I had intended to make my hives, but when I received the sample hive and saw the
No. 1 pine lumber from which it was made, and considering the workmanship, I am
satisfied I can buy cheaper than 1 can make them; enough cheaper to save the price
of the lumber.

HONEY MARKETS

The prices listed below are intended to represent, as nearly as possible, the average market prices at which honey and beeswax are selling at the time of the report in the city mentioned. Unless otherwise stated, this is the price at which sales are being made by commission merchants or by producers direct to the retail merchants. When sales are made by commission merchants the usual commission (from five to ten per cent), cartage, and freight will be deducted; and in addition there is often a charge for storing by the commission merchant. When sales are made by the producer direct to the retailer, commission and storage and other charges are eliminated. Sales made to wholesale houses are usually about ten per cent less than those to retail merchants.

CINCINNATI. The demand for honey is good, although many of the big buyers refuse to pay last year's prices, and it is an effort on our part to sustain the prices of to-day. We are selling fancy comb honey in a small way from our store at 16% to 18, and in a wholesale way at a few cents a pound less, according to the quantity purchased. Strictly fancy extracted honey in crates of two 60-lb. cans we are selling at 81⁄2 to 10, and in barrel lots at 81⁄2 and sometimes 9; amber honey in barrels at 6 to 7. For choice bright yellow beeswax we are paying 28 cts. per lb. in cash or 30 in trade. Cincinnati, O., Sept. 3.
