HE bulk of our trade at this branch comes from Southern Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, the Virginias, and Carolinas; but this well-located office at the national center is also on the main line to the great South. No better service to the section along the Atlantic Coast can be had. A realization of our opportunity at this important distributing-point has encouraged us to make most careful and complete preparations for prompt and efficient service.

Read of Our Facilities

Shipping Facilities.

Through railroad service to the heart of the South, main trunk lines north and west, steamship service along the Atlantic Coast, with all contingent facilities for quick handling of freight and express make our location an important one for bee-keepers who live in this great section and want the best bee-supplies with a minimum of delay and transportation expense.

Root Goods are Standard Goods!

Remember that ROOT'S Bee-keepers' Supplies are recognized all over the world as the STANDARD-standard in dimensions, standard in quality. Every part and place fits exactly in the place it was intended for. All parts are made with the utmost care and accuracy, and can be placed in any other hive of the same style without a hitch in fit. Our lumber is selected with a view to getting the best to be procured. It is carefully sorted and thoroughly seasoned. And no less care is taken in the choice of any material whatever that goes into a product which, when finished, is to bear the ROOT label.

Supplies and

Abundant room in this branch enables us to carry a very large stock which represents practically every article in the big Root line. All goods listed in former price lists, and still on sale, are here, together with the new and improved lines shown in this 100th edition of our catalog. Carload lots of fresh supplies continually come from our factory to keep our stock complete. No delay in filling even the largest orders at Washington, is our policy.


We do not charge for packing, boxing, or delivering to freight or express offices here in Washington. We do not prepay any charges unless goods are to be delivered to a prepaid station, as all our prices and quotations are F. O. B., Washington. If no agent at your station, notify us and we will prepay, and bill charges after shipment. Often during the busy season much time can be saved by ordering small shipments sent by express. Your local agent will tell you about what charges will be from here.

The Washington Branch has the benefit of the experience of a manager who thoroughly understands the requirements of those engaged in this business either for profit or pleasure. He couples with his knowledge the desire to make his service valuable to you upon any occasion. Bee-keeping is gaining prominence in the Southland, and it will pay to investigate the opportunities offered by this pursuit in connection with poultry, fruit, and similar alliances. Do not be afraid to make known you wants-come to Washington, or write and we will show you every possible consideration.

ZANESVILLE.-The excessively warm weather has practically destroyed the demand for honey, there being almost no call for it at the present time. This is rather unusual, as a healthy demand usually marks the coming-in of the new crop on the local market. Locally the honey yield will be considerably heavier than anticipated, and this may temporarily lower prices, though indications are that prices are likely to be rather high and firm. Producers are being offered for beeswax 28 cts. cash, 30 in exchange for bee-supplies.

LIVERPOOL. Since we last reported, most of the stocks of Haitien have been cleared at full prices. In other, honey trade has been slow, old pile No. 1 Chilian being sold at $6.00 per cwt. to clear before the new arrival. The first shipment of Chilian, about 500 barrels, has just arrived, and as yet there are no sales to report, neither are there any fresh features to report in other descriptions, and the quotations are: Chilian, $5.52 to 86.72; Californian, $8.40 to $10.48; Jamaican, $6.00 to $6.72; Peruvian, $3.84 to $4.80; Haitien. $6.00 to $7.56. Having been in short supply, recent arrivals of wax have sold very well, chiefly at $38.72 per cwt. for medium yellow Chilian. Buyers expect a decline as soon as further lots come in, and prices have eased off considerably this shipment. We quote to-day, African, $33.64 to $34.48: American, $36.28: West Indian, $32.64 $36.48; Chilian, $33.88 to 39.92.

Honey-Harvest Days are Here!

It is possible that, on account of conditions, you did not order any extra supplies; and now that the honey is coming in fast, you find yourself short of some important items. This is where we come in. Our stock is large and complete, and we are ready to fill your orders immediately on receipt.


Having produced a fine crop of honey, it is folly to market it in any thing but the best and neatest package. Good shipping-cases add much to the value of your honey, and you can not expect to secure the highest price unless your package as well as your product is the best. We supply all kinds of honey-packages-cases, bottles, cans, cartons, etc.


We sell the best grade of sections made. If you want a hundred or ten thousand or a hundred thousand, we can fill your order promptly with goods which are bound to please. You may judge of the popularity of these sections when we tell you that the manufacturers make upward of twenty-five million of them every season.


Another article we handle in considerable quantities is Comb Foundation. There is nothing more important to the up-to-date bee-keeper than to have foundation just when he needs it, and of the best quality. We sell nothing but Root's Weed-process Foundation, the recognized standard of the world. The bees appreciate the good points of this foundation, and every beekeeper knows that it is the best. All grades and sizes constantly on hand. A pound or a ton, just as you like.


Whether you are ordering in ample season or whether you have put off until the last moment, you may rest assured that our service will give you delivery of goods at a minimum of expense and time. Having so many years' experience in this work, we know the best routes and we have the best facilities for serving you. Just tell us your needs briefly and send us definite orders, and we will demonstrate what we can do for you.
