Sparta it is planned to make all
early shipments from that point.
Agencies cooperating with U. S.
Department of Agriculture in the
distribution of this picrio acid
will be permitted to make a con
tingency charge to the buyer of
not to exceed 1 cent per pound,
to cover the cost to that agency
of the assistants, accounting, and
other necessary expencies inci
dental to the distributing of the
explosive, the funds thus provid
ed to be handled in accordar;c
with agreement between the ag
ency and the U. S. Department
of Agriculture.
The cooperattng agency should,
at the time each individual order
for picric acid is taken collect (1)
the cost of cartridging and pack.
ing (6 cents per pound), this to
be forwarded with the order
to the Bureau of Public
loads; (2) the freight charges; (3)1
the contingeucy charge (1 cent
per pound) . The freight charge
would be retained by the cooper,
ating agency until the arrival of
the shipment; the contingency
charge will be handled as provi
ded in the agreement with the
Department of Agriculture.
Picric acid should be denotated
with a No. 8 cap, eithsr an ordi
nary blasting cap or an electric
blasting cap. This is larger size
than is usually carried by dealers,
so that a supply of No, 8 caps
should be ordered from a dealer
or manufacturer at the same time
that the picric acid is ordered.
The Department of Agriculture
has no caps, fuses, electrical
equipuient or other accessories
fot distribution. If the coopera.
ting agency will secure orders for
the 'caps as he secures the orders
for the picric acid the caps can be
obtained in large quantities at a
considerable saving over the cost
of the sAme number of caps order
ed in small lots.

The animal lose from hog chol.
era to the United States is $65,
000,000. A few simple methods
of prevention will greatly reduce
this loss. Louisiana has suffered
the lose of approximately 135,000
