CORNSTALKS MAKE FINE
PAPER BY A NEW PROCESS

ers is Developed at Kankakee.
Kankakee, III.. Feb. 4. A Maine
paper mill is making; paper from Illi
nois corn stalks that sells as high as
S cents a pound, the result of a new
farm operation that promises great
icsults. It is a farm matter in that
paper results in
of .'! cents a
t he use of
for $1 an
bushel and in having gathered into
his barn all of the the fodder that is
really desirable for feeding purposes.
For ears the paper manufacturers
have known that the corn stalk pro
duces a fibre that is valuable for paper-making-
purposes, but up to a year
or so ago they were at a loss to know
hi w to cook it to advantage. To cook
the shell of the corn stalk to the prop
er consistency would overcook the
pith. Neither could the leaves or
the Im-ks In conked with the stalk
without spoiling' some component
About eight years ago George B
Sherwood, of Kearney, Neb., began
giving- the subject of utilizing' corn
stalks ci nsiderable thought. From
his scat in Ihe railroad, car he looked
out over the great wastes of corn
stalks and tried to figure out the so
lution of putling- them to valuable
use. Later he consulted a I Incago
chemist named William Iloskins, and
the two set to work to devise a pian
by which ihe shell of the corn stalk
an.! the pith could be prepared for
paper-making separately. To do this
it would Ih necessary to separate the
pith from the shell an ! it vi uld have
to be done by machinery. A score or
more of such machines were experi
Abo.it a year ago a piece of mechan
ism was completed and set to work
with the result that nearly 10: ton of
the finest grades of paper have been
made from stalks that grew in Kan
kakee county, Illinois. The quality of
this paper is such as to make it avail
able f r nearly all of the purposes of
a printer or bookmaker. The charac
ter of Ihe pith production is slightly
different from that of the shell. One
grade of it has been found desirable
for grocers' use in covering- lard or
butter. A large proportion of the pa
per that has been made came from
the l'.03 crop of corn stalks.
It was first thought

The S'i.OtHJ fund for the establish
ment of an industrial bureau, an
agency through which to promote the
industrial welfare of the i-ity. has
been raised, almost. The recent idler
sent out bv I . A. Head, president ot
the IJock Island t lub. in which was
shown the condition of affairs: that
oonfi oiiled the club by reason .of the
failure of the Betail Merchants' asso
ciation to make good ll.o sum it was
expected to subscribe, has met with
a generous lesponse from among
those who have been addressed on the
subject, but there is still required a
small sum. and in the hope that this
will be forthcoming; at once Mr. Head
has sent-out another communication,
ami all who have not done so should
willingly do their pnrt. for it is an en
terprise that every citizen of I lock
Island should feel an interest in. The
"With an apology first 'for what
may possilily seem to you like unnec
essary haste and persistency ii the
matter, we wish to remind you of our
recent letter relative to the fund for
the Industrial Bureau, and to urgent
ly request that you give the question
your early consideration.
"We fully realize that this is a most
iiumual way to solicit for funds in
such a cause, but you can probably
appreciate the difficulties of getting
suitable committees to, make a per
sonal canvass and the still further
probability that when hoped for sub-'
senders are oa lieu upon, mev mav 1101

"It seems to
as well determine
the influence of
whether lie is willing it not to con
tribute a small sum for the purpose
vf informing the outside world as to
the advantages of the city in which
he lives for manufacturing' ami com
mercial purposes, ami that he would
be willing' to advise us of his conclu
sions. Almost all t' whom our appeal
has been made must realize the neces
sity of expenditures in advertising
their business, an:! of them we ask
the question, if a small amount jndi-:
ciouslv invested for the purp sc of.
increasing the number of their pa
trons is Hot as well spent as might be
a larger sum to influence the trade
of those already here?
"We fear there is a slight disposi
tion on the part of a lurge majority
of our citizens to withhold their sup
port of any measure for the public's
good, if there is nn expense involved
in the undertaking, in the hope that
others will be found to carry it
through without their assistance, and
it is needless to say that when such
sentiment becomes universal, what
ever is undertaken must fail.
Subscription Are Small.
"The fill vcription asked of each one
addressed on the proposition for establishing-
an industrial bureau is
small, and assigned, as believe, ac
cording to their ability to give, and
in proportion as they will be benefited
by carrying cut the measures propos
ed. If each ami every one respnn Is
with the amount asked for, the whole
sum will be scarcely more than is suf
ficient for the purposes stated in the
joint report f the committee, and
therefore the necessity that each and
every one should do his share ami dn
"Although the writer's personal in
terests will be greatly enhanced by
the keeping out of othtr manufactur
ers and thereby leaving the local la
bor market without competition, so
far as it is affected by other manu
facturing interests, he has from dif
ferent motives assumed Ihe burden of
carrying through the enterprise men
tioned, nnd wishes to have it deter-
best to induce
corn fodder to
the plant in Kankakee, have the corn
husked, and then hauling the leaves
ami the husks back to the farm for
feeding purposes. Superintendent Mil
ler, of the factory, however, believed
there was a much better plan, one
that was calculated to enlist the co
operation of the farmers. He per
fected a machine, the province of
which is to lie hauled to the farm, set
up near the barn, and then haul Ihe
shocks of fodder to the machine, just
as the threshing people haul oats or

'Tin "first act of the contrivance is
to snap off the ears of the corn stalk
and to drop them into a double con
veyor, which carries the ears along
endways, skinning off the husks as
they pass along". Scarcely a shred Is
left 011 an ear. the great bulk of the
yellow ears coming out without a
vestige of their firmer covering.
What little shelling is done in the op
eration, the machine saves the grains
and oeposits them in a box at the
side. The ears are run bv machinery
into a wagon box. in which they arc
After having clipped off the cars,
the machine runs the stalk to the
rear, depositing them side by side on
a table. Automatically the machine
roils them into a bundle that is push
ed into a binder operated on the same
pi inciple' as that of the binding ma
chinery of a harvester. The bundle
of stalks, as clean as fish poles, is
tied with a hemp cord and dropped
to the side of the machine.
The leaves and husks of the fodder
are dropped on an endless belt that
carries them to the mouth of a blow
pipe, the function of which is to blow
this material into the barn of the
farmer, who finds in it some rf the
finest feeil stuff that his farm produces-.
For thus husking his corn and blow
ing the part fit for cattle feed into
the barn, the farmer pays the machine
man $1 nn acre and turns over the
stalks to the latter free of charge.
The machine will clean up six acres,
or about 130 shocks of corn a day.
The stalks, which have now become
the property of the hiisker, are hauled
or shipped to the plant at Kankakee
nnd are conveyed to an tipper room,
where they are fed into a machine
that separates the pith from the shell
of the stalk. Two knives that are
driven at great speed saw the pith
from the stalk that has been rolled
flat, so that every particle of the pith
has been taken out. The pith is drop

where each is treated according to a
particular process in making paper.
At first the busker and depithing
machines were combined in one. the
first idea being to brim? all of the
fodder to the plant. Then it was
found to be more desirab'e to do the
husking on Jhe farm and the depith
ing in tLe plant, nnd they were sep
arated. Ii is. believed thai one of the
huskers may be perfected to strip and
husk 13 acres a day and will turn out
in a single autumn :oO tons of pre
pared corn stalks. A paper' mill w ith
a daily capacity of 100 tons of finish
el paper will require 60.OO0 tons if
corn stalks annually. It is estimated
that the total output of the paper
