New Industry Being Developed by
the Department of Agriculture
Result of Experiments.
In the manufact tre of alcohol from
eoricobs anid cornstalks, at small cost,
the dIepartmeiit of agriculture is de
veloping.1a new in(ustry hat the (le
partnient says is likely to be of large
cominercial value. Investigations
which the department is making at
Hloopestonl, Ill, have proved that the
harge quantities of corncobs which
every year heretofore have gone to
waste, ci he converted into alcohol
in sufficienlt quiantities to justify the
erectioin of a distillng plant in con
nection with a corn cannery.
Result of Experiments.
The departnient of agriculture sent
two chemists to Hoopestpn to make
experiments at a large cannery there.
They have succeeded by simple meth
ods of fermentation in getting a yield
of elevei gollons of alcohol from a
ton of green cobs, but similar methods,
of eleven gallons of alcohol from a
ton of green cobs, by'similar methods,
concerning the experiments by one of
the scientists of the department reads:
''At different times during the past
twenty-five years the department has
conducteed experiments along the same
line, but with eoinnon field corn
shalks. These tests show that there
are 240 pounds of' fermentable sub
stance in a ton of green cornstalks,
which will yielhl about. half of their
wei-ho ii absolute alcohol. In round
ninhers I tol of stalks will pIroducc
100 p(ilIs of alcohol or 200 pounds
of pr'441,: :its. As a galon of alCo
ho weI2hs nearly Sevel poulnds, there
shld hii1 1f ifteenl gallons of alcohol
in a toil oif stalks.

Cost of Distilleries.
It has become quite a habit with
manufacturers inl various lines to at
tach subsidiary pilatits to their factor
ies to recover and utilize otherwise
waste products. What the expense of
attaching a distilling plant to a pack
ing house would be has not yet been
determined, but the -actual expense of
listillilig the alcohol from corneobs
should not be greater than 3 cents a
gallon. As the cobs arc now a waste
product and ani expense to dispose of,
the cost of the raw material should
not be large. A molasses distilling
plant with a cap)acity of 10,000 gallons
daily costs about $40,000, but it is
thought that a smaller plant would do
for most packing houses. The sajne
possibilities that apply to distilling
connected with a corn packng plant
would obtain in the use of tomato
parings, pea hulls, banana rinds and
many other articles of vegetable re
fuse. It is even possible at a small
cost to remodel a brandy still so that.
it can be used for brandy during thi'e
fruit season and for the rema.inder
of the year for manufacturing alcohol
for use i-n the arts.
How She Compromised.
''This somewhat. grasp)ing spirit,''
said Senator Burrows, in the course
of a recent argument, ' 'reminds mec of
a lady wh'lo dropped in the other day
at a certain bank.
''Going to the paying teller's win

out a check and pushed it under the

'The paying teller, after one glance
at the check, pushed it back to the

said the woman excitedly.
''Yes, I know,' admit led the teller',
'but there is no amount.'
''Oh never mind that, said the
woman impatiently. 'Give me what
A Lined Bodice.
In making a bodice with a lining re
member tliat while the lining itself
should be well fitted to the figure the
material should be a little looser. If
it is stretched tightly over the lining
the bodice will probably lose its shape
and if the material is at all loosely
woven it will give at the seams.
The worHl f'xtends( the glad hand to
the lucky, but all it hands the victim
of tough luck Is a little cold sympathy.
