12 July, 1892 THE LUMBER TRADE ABROAD. A Saginaw dealer purchased 5,000,000 feet of lumber at Lake Superior points for the eastern markets. James Graves, at one time a rich sawmill owner, hanged himself in his barn at his home in Gravesville, Wis. Fire originating in Woods, Jenks & Co.’s planing mill in the lumber district of Cleveland, Ohio, caused about $200,000 damage. George Harney, of Woodruff, a promin- ent lumberman who recently met financial reverses, drowned himself in the Wisconsin river. Lumber traffic through the "Soo" canal is increasing. In May, 1891, 46,829,000 feet of lumber passed through, and in May, 1892, 68,925,000. A cargo of mahogany is said to be floating loose on the Atlantic. It was abandoned March 31st last, since which time it has floated thousands of miles. Hickory as lumber is exceedingly scarce in the United States market. Though now rarely called for, it is more rarely found. White ash of good fibre is generally used as a substitute. Water shipments from the Saginaw Valley, Mich., have fallen off nearly 11,000,000 feet since the beginning of the season as compared with last year. The railroads are rapidly driv- ing the vessel men out of business. At Genoa, Ark., a small station on the Cot- ton Belt Railroad, burglars entered the office of the Bodcaw Lumber Co., opened the safe and carried away $40,000 worth of the company’s stock, $12,000 worth of notes, and about $100 in cash. The famous big trees of North Carolina will be represented in the Forestry Building at Chicago by a colonnade of nine trunks, each twenty-fie feet long, which are the gift of Mr. George Vanderbilt from his estate at Biltmore, near Asheville. On the 16th ult. fire did $25,000 damage to the mill of W. P. Mershon and Co., north of Saginaw, Mich. It caught in the boiler room and destroyed the cutting mill, dry kiln and 750,000 feet of lumber. It required heroic work to save the docks and the adjoining prop- erty. The loss is about half covered by insur- ance. Lumber is the largest of any single manufac- turing enterprise of the United States. The capital invested in it equals $750,000,000, and about 3,000,000 people contribute to it their labor and look to it for their support. The manufactured output of the American sawmills alone equals the marvelous annual yield of $500,000,000 greater than all the gold, silver, copper, lead, iron and coal mines of this great nation. The Timber Trades Journal, London, Eng., says ihe houses of Cape Town, Africa, are built of brick, because frame houses soon succumb to the fierce southeasterly winds and the intense heat of the summer. The timber used for the construction of the old Dutch buildings was mostly teak, brought from India. At the pres- ent time most of the timber is imported from Sweden and Norway, with considerable pine from Florida. There are no forests worthy of the name within 400 miles of Cape Town, and only one in the entire Cape Colony. The Manchester Ship Canal Company, Eng- land, is making preparations for landing space to accommodate the timber and lumber trade, between Eastham and Rancorn. At Ellsmere port, the terminus of the Shropshire Union canal, vessels drawing 26 feet of water can safely land their cargoes. From this point lumber can be distributed nearly throughout Cheshire, Shropshire, and in many other places in North Wales. At the junction of the river Weaver with the ship canal an enormous water space is being reserved as a timber pond, which will be used for the storage of logs.

Book reviews are great ways to promote your book and increase you book sales. When formulating your book marketing plan include a creative way to use book reviews. A good book review can land you on a best seller list or put you into the seven figure bracket for sales profits. What is your current or planned use of book reviews? Are you submitting your book to websites, book groups or newspapers? Focus on connecting with any niche associated with your books genre or its subject matter addresses. Once youve identified these resources, reach out to them and try to establish a relationship that will create multiple sales. Here are three examples of uncommon book reviews:
Schools offer an uncommon and irregular channel through which you can sell your book. If you get your book into the right hands at the board of education, you can then get your book into several hands throughout your school district. Contact the board of education and find out who is responsible for accepting books into the school system. If your book is not child friendly but would appeal to education professions offer a discount to the employees that work for the school system.
Corporations can provide a new way to advertise your book. A few years ago I worked for a global insurance brokerage firm. During a department meeting our manager announced that we would all be reading a book entitled Who Stole My Cheese. Some of us welcomed the opportunity while others shunned the book. Each of us who read the book was transformed into an individual marketing tool. Even those who chose not to read the small book filled with change embracing techniques became advertisers inadvertently. Simply by being exposed to the book on a corporate level had us all talking about the book and of course we took our conversations and reviews outside of our cubicles and work environment.
Environmental companies, stores and websites are great places to promote your book. They can purchase the books outright for themselves or promote it for you through their various mediums. When you think about your book, its audience, the niche, its genre or the benefits it offers, try to identify where it could fit in as an addition to some other product. Is your book a chick lit? Why not sell it retail to companies that offer gift packages for women? Be creative and try to think outside of the box. I apologize for the cliché, but it works.
