A. corn i; tlie principal grain crop
f tie Knifed States, su.d will most
likely always continue so, it will al
ways Le a matter of interest to tin
producers to learn that a new opening
is made for its use. In the last few
years several lines of consumption
have lccn developed. Two of the prin
e'pal ones are in making com sirup
and starch. The latter use added to
the I i s. t . is the making of corn oil.
This, however, does not actually con
sume the grain, but only extracts
from it the oil, still leaving its feeding
value, practically unimpaired. A mill
for this purpose is now in operation
at Decatur, III., and a ery interest
i ii account of it has been published
by A. K. Ouyton. Mr. Ouyton says:
The new corn oil mill at Decatur.
III., is one of the largest manufactur
ing plants in that locality, and it i
i lie i my one i its particular kind in
the coimtrv. Corn oil of a crude kind
has lieon extracted by pressure, but
this is the first mill ever established
for the making of corn oil bv what is
know n as the solvent process. Tht
plant- is the result of an evolution
which has eoered set en years. From
the crudest beginning the process has
developed until now it seems to be
perfect, at least sufficiently so that
the owners of the !a:it were willing
to invest nearly half a million dol.'ar

but somewhat c mplicated in its prac
tical application. A solvent is used,
the .sohent being a 1 ;rlit- nil subject
to evaporation. l lie oil liearing por
tions of the corn are steeped in the
solvent which takes up the corn oil
The sohent is then drawn from the
bottom f the tank in which this part
of the process takes place. The two
oils are separattd for distillation. The
corn is passei through a tillering pro
cess to remove particles of starch
or other foreign matter and is then
ready for the market. 'I he solvent is

-storage tank to lie used again. The
corn from which the oil has been ex-

if separating this oil from tin- corn
is similar to that of separating sugar
from beets, the difference being in the
solvent used. The stock feed is not
entirely ilcvont ol oil, which it 1.
claimed is a sutticicnt ratio of oil jn a

The portions of the corn that are
used in the oil mill are the waste
product of the horr.iny and corn
flour mills. That is. those which can
not be mace into hominy, grits or
cornflour. These waste products are
known to the trade as hominy chop
and germs. The germ is the heart of
the kernel and the chop is another by
product of the hominy making pro
cess. These are the oil-bearing por
tions of the corn. Neither was lost
to the corn mills entirely, as they
were sold for stock feed, but the corn
oil, which has only a trifling value as
feed, was a practical loss. It is the
business of the new corn oil mill to
save this oil without detracting from
the food value of the remaining jor
tion. The germ of the corn contains
1 to 24 per cent oil ami the chop
about 10 per cent oil. The latter,
therefore, constitutes the greater bulk
of the raw material of the corn oil
There are at Decatur several large
cereal mills where corn is ground and
which supply the corn by-products I
necessary for the manufacture of the
corn oil, but these local mills do not i
furnish a sufficient supply of the oil-
bearing portions of the corn and the
raw material is bought from many
different corn grinding mills, some be
ing shipped in from Iowa. Nebraska.
Michigan and a few other states. j
The corn oil mill has a capacity of
extracting" oil from H)0 tons of raw
material every 24 hours. The amount
of oil produced depends upon whether
the greater portion of the raw ma
terial is germs or chop, but the man
agement generally figures on produc
ing three tank cars tif oil every day.
The .'!) tons of raw material used
each 21 hours means about ten car
loads and an almost equal amount of
stock feed is produced as well as the
Superior to Unseed Oil.
The uses of corn oil are many, but
its greatest value is fouu I as a idiicle
for mixing paints, and for this purpose
it is claimed by the manufacturers to
be superior to the liest linseed. oil. The
tests which have been made show that
the corn il when used with paints
dries ill such a way that it is elastic
md does not oxidie and therefore is
more durable than unseen on wncn
used for exterior painting.
It may also be used in making soap
and for other purposes, but the most
important use is as a paint oil and for
the manufacture of varnish. The prod
uct of the Decatur factory is sold
largely to the paint manufacturers.
who refine it after receiving it from
the corn oil mill.
Corn oil is by no means a new thing
in the market. The glucose manufac
turers and some others extract oil
from corn by pressure, but this leaves
the feel in the form of cake which
must be ground at a considerable ad
ditional expense, and the oil, too, is
not of as much value as that extracted
by the solvent- process, as it cannot
be used for mixing naints and is most

MESSIAH IS SUNG
Beautiful Rendition of the Inspir

THE CHORUS DOES FINE W0BK
Assisted by Soloists From Chicago
Closing Features of Found
An audience that taxed the capacity
of Cable hall, Augiistana college, en
joyed the singing of "The Messiah" by
the Ilant'el Oratorio society last even
ing. The concert was the closing feat
ure of the celebration of Founders'
Assisting the society as soloists
were Mrs. Crace Wideny Mabee, so-
prano; Mrs. Saltzmaiin-Stcvens. alto:
William ( hire Hall, tenor, and Oustaf
Ilolinipiist, basso. Prof. F. K. Peter
son was musical director, and the in
te'lligence and thoroughness with
which tliis must difficult work was in
terpreter! was a handsome tribute to
his painstaking abilities.
Ill the chorus there were 150 young
men and women, including many of
the leading voices of the city. "The
Messiah" contains some inspiring pas
sages, and it was in these that effect
ually the singers displayed their
voices and familiarity with their text.
Tin audience followed the' oratorio
with close attention, but frequently
then- were outbursts of enthusiastic
applause at the conclusion of a solo
or chorus number, but no encores
were permitted. While the perform
ance was not hurried, there were not
the delays that make entertainments
of such a character tiresome, and the
audience was dismissed at a reason
able hour, all who had attended being
proud of the work of the local vocal
ists and charmed at having had the
pleasure of hearing the distinguished
soloists from Chicago.
Kxerrlses of the Afternoon.
The exercises held yesterday after
noon in Cable hall were arranged by
the 4 oung People's association of t he
Uock Island district, the society hav
ing previously held a convention at
(race Lutheran church on Twenty
fourth street. The auditorium was
filled when the assemblage was called
to order by President Oustav Andreen.
There was a selection by the college
band, after which devotional exer
cises were conducted by Hev. O. .
Holmgrain. Then- was a song by the
Ladies quartet from Cambridge. The
address of welcome was delivered by
Dr. Andreen. The active participation
of the young people of the district in
the college anniversary was an assur
ance that the labors of their fore
fathers for the perpetuation of their
native church was not in vain. A few
years hence they must take up the
burdens now shouldered by their
elders in the work of the church and
college. An eloquent tribute was paid
to Presidents Kshjorn. Hasselquist anil
Olsson, whose influence endures to
this day. and is shaping" the lives and
characters of the young people in the
synod. J. A. Hobcrg. of Osco. respond
ed. He is chairman of the Young Peo
ple's association of the district. He
expressed the earnest interest felt by
the young people in the welfare of the
college and oi' their appreciation of
the responsibility that would be- theirs
in due course of time in reference to
its maintenance. "On the Sea" was
sung by the Wennerberg Male chorus.
Life of Dr. IlauelqalHt
Dr. C. A. Kvnld. of Chicago, gave an
address on "The Life and Labors of
Dr. T. X. 1 lasselquist." A tribute was
paid to the abilities of Dr. Hasselquist
as preacher, pastor, writer, editor,
commentate r. teacher, college presi
dent and patriarchal president of Au
giistana sy nod. He arrived in America
in 1S.1I, having received a call
as pastor of the Swedish Luther
an church in Oalesburg. He wa. the
first president of Augiistana synod
( IsfiO-lsTO). and president of Angus
tana college in Paxfon and Hock 1-1-and
from 1M':: to isoi. II,. was the
founder, iu ls.1.1, of the first Swedish
political paper. "Ilerrdr.iidet," which is
still published as a republican weekly
in Chicago. He took a positive stand
against slavery and secession, and
gave a bent to the polities of the
Swedish-Americans which endures to
Honor to Whom One.
Two songs were sung by the chape
choir, after which Prof. C. J. Soder
gren gave an address, one of the gems
of the day . on "Honor to Whom Honor
Is Due." He referred to the manifes
tations of the spirit of greed, graft
and lawlessness, irreverence, which
extends from the home to irrevertnee
to authority in every form, human
and divine. If these tendencies cannot
be checked, he said, it cannot be long
before our country will suffer a sober
ing humiliation. Dr. S dergren con
tinued: "We recognize in the fathers the
wise founders and staunch supporters
of our institutions, t he authors of our
various organizations, the wise fra til
ers ef our constitution, the leaders of
so many a laudable enterprise, the
faithful missionary laborers and till
able and practical educators, each in
his sphere, of all who came within the
wide range of their influence. Many
of thoe who are iu the land of the
dying as well as those who are in the
land of the living, did not have what
is called a higher education. They
performed the miracle of giving to
their children what they themselves
did not possess. They exemplified the
truth that men of the least accom
plishments often accomplish the most.
The Faithful Pastor.
The better class of druggists, everyvrhoro, arc r.-!en of scientific nt'ainnionls anil niph integrity,
vrho devote their lives to the welfare of their fellow men in supplying the best of remedies and
Puret medicinal agents of known value, in accordance with physicians' prescripiions and
scientific formula. Druggists of the better class manufacture many excellent remedies, but
always under original cr officinal names and they never sell false brands, or imitation raodiein.es.
They are the men to deal with when in need oi "anything in their line, which Usually includes
all standard remedies and corresponding adjuncts "of a first-class pharmacy and the finest and
best of toilet articles and preparations and many useful accessories ar.d remedial appliances.
The earning of a fair living, with the satisfaction which arises from a knowledge of the benefits
conferred upon their patrons and a?sistance to the medical profession, is usually their greatest
reward for long years of study and mr.ny hours of daily toil. They ell know th.nt Syrup of
Figs is an excellent laxative remedy and that it gives universal satisfaction, and therefore they
aro selling many millions of bottles annually to the well informed purchasers of the choicest
remedies, and they always take pleasure in handing out the genuine article bearing the full
name of the Company California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of every package.
They know that in cases of colds and headaches attended by biliousness and constipation and
of weakness or torpidity of tho liver and bowels, arising from irregular habits, indigestion, or
ovcr-cating, that there is no other remedy so pleasant, prompt and beneficial in its effects as
Syrup of Figs, and they aro glad to sell it because it gives universal satisfaction.
Owing to tho excellence of Syrup of Figs, tho universal satisfaction which it gives and tho
immense demand for it, imitations have been made, tried and condemned, but there aro
individual druggists to be found, hero and there, who do not maintain the dignity and principles
of the profession and whose greed gets tho better of their judgment, ami who do not hesitate
to recommend and try to sell the imitations in order to make a larger profit. Such preparations
sometimes have tho name " Syrup of Figs" or "Fig Syrup" and of some piratical concern,
or fictitious fig sj'rup company, printed on the packape,bi:t they never have the full name of
the Company California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of the package. The imitations
should be rejected because they are injurious to the system. Jn order to sell the imitations
they find it necessary to resort to misrepresentation or deception, and whenever a dealer passes
off on a customer a preparation under the name of ''Syrup of Figs" or '"Fig Syrup," which
does not boar the full name of the California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of the package,
he is attempting to deceive and mislead the patron who has been so unfortunate as to enter his
establishment, whether it be large or small, for if the dealer resorts to misrepresentation ami
and deception in one case he will do so with other medicinal agents, and in the filling of
physicians' prescriptions, and should bo avoided by every one who values health and happiness.
Knowing that the great majority of dru'jgists are reliable, we supplv the immense demand
for our excellent remedy entirely through the drutrgists, of whom it may be purchased every
where, in original packages only, at the regular price of fifty cents per bottle, but as exceptions
exist it is necessary to inform the public of the facts, in order that all may decline or return
any imitation which may be soltl to them. If it does not bear the full name of the Company
California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of every package, do not hesitate to return tho
article and to demand the return of your money, and in future go to one of the better class of
druggists who will sell you what you wish and the best of everything
were and are along these lines, we
somehow love to think of them, es
pecially as the faithful pastors, who
'cared for the sheep.' and as the able
preachers ef tiie word of God and our
Lutheran faith. Who does not remem
ber the words i f grace and truth and
power that fell so often from their
lips'. Their sermons were not beauti

air. leaving the ground as dry as be

the desert to tlr premised land.
