It is possible that some of the rough mill stock sold to the slate mills by the quarrymen was used for Dlackboards and school slates.

Vermont.--Vermont ranks next to Pennsylvania in the production of slate, and in 1909 produced 33.84 per cent of the total value of the United States output as compared with 53.15 per cent produced by Pennsylvania; in 1908 these figures for Vermont and Pennsylvania were 27.08 percent and 61.79 per cent, respectively--an increase for Vermont and a loss for Pennsylvania in 1909. Vermont was one of the three States showing an increased output in 1909 as compared with 1908, and this increased value of product was for both roofing slate and mill stock.
