19,000 Cords of Pulp Wood at Fort William, Ontario, Canada
Up on the north shore of Lake Superior is Fort William -- one of the busiest cities in Ontario. North of and back of it is one of the wildest parts of North America. For hundreds of miles towards Hudson's Bay the land is rocky and rough. The soil is now poor, but it was at one time covered with great forests. The largest trees have been cut for lumber. The smaller spruce and poplar are now being cut and ground into wood pulp. The wood pulp is sent to paper mills and from it a cheap quality of paper is made.
Fort William is located on Lake Superior and on two transcontinental railway lines. At Fort William are located the mils that grind the short lengths of tree trunk into the pulp. This pulp is then sent to the paper mills in the eastern part of Canada, to the United States, and to England. Perhaps the newspaper you read this morning was but a few weeks ago a part of a tree way up in this northern country.
On the Keystone Map of Canada locate Fort William and the northern wood pulp district. Of what other materials is paper made?
