CORRESPONDENTS' NOTES.


ALACHUA COUNTY.-The unfavorable season has caused
great damage to cotton, and has caused considerable
losses to some other crops. Unless there is improve-
ment very soon cotton and several other crops will be
short.
BAKER COUNTY.-Crops have lost much in this county
by the unfavorable season. Cotton will be very short, not
more than half a crop. Peanuts and sugar cane will be
the best crops, and cane might be better.
BRADFORD COUNTY-Excessive rains have cut off all late
crops, such as cotton, field peas, peanuts, etc.; crops gen-
erally will be short.
BREVARD COUNTY-The few field crops grown here are
doing well. Fruit trees of all kinds in good condition
and growing fine; will be fair crop of oranges..
CALHOUN COUNTY-Cotton crops will be quite short, but
corn and other field crops will make good yields.
CLAY COUNTY-Crops of this county are all fine, and in-
dications are that all will yield well. The seasons have
been favorable for crops up to this time.
COLUMBIA COUNTY-Some crops are good and others
poor; cotton will be very short, rust and shedding is get-
ting in bad work, and damaging the crop very much.
Forage crops will be fine.
DADE COUNTY-The few crops grown are doing well;
all fruit trees and crops are growing finely and promise
fine crops.
ESCAMBIA COUNTY-Cotton is very short, hardly more
than half a crop will be made; the standard field crops
are doing well and good yields are expected.

FRANKLIN COUNTY-All crops are reported to be grow-
ing fine from all parts of the county; plenty of rain, but
not too much yet.
GADSDEN COUNTY-Field peas and velvet bean vines are
very fine,, good growth, but up to date no peas show on
them at all. Yield of other crops will be good, except
cotton, which will not be over 50 per cent, of last year.
HAMILTON COUNTY-On account of the continued dry
weather the crops are in very poor condition and the
average yield will be poor; cotton is very short. Pas-
tures are poor.
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY-The crops have nearly all suf-
fered from excessive rains, many low land fields being
partially covered with water, and nearly all entirely too
wet to work. '
The orange and grape fruit trees are in better condition
than at any time since the freeze of 1894-5. The crop is
not so large as last year, but prospects fine for big crop
another year, if we have no freeze the coming winter.
HOLMES COUNTY-Incessant rains have injured cotton
badly and is seriously interfering with picking; it has
rained almost continuously since July. Corn is splendid
to look at, but there is a greater per cent of it rotten than
we have ever een at this season.
JEFFERSON COUNTY-Crops generally are good, except
cotton, which is very short, which wl hardly make half
a crop. Excessive rains have done much damage.
LAFAYETTE COUNTY-Crops are fairly good, except cot-
ton, the heavy rains have caused it to shed, and on old
lands it is fired also; the crop will be very, short.
LEE COUNTY-Crops are about as good as usual, though
the seasons have been too wet for all but fruit trees;
these are doing fine and will yield a good crop this year.
LEON COUNTY-Cotton will make very little if any over
half a crop; the incessant rains have caused shedding and
rust ,and in some section of the county caterpillars have
destroyed wh6le fields of cotton. Picking is about keep-
ing up with the opening. Other field crops are very good,
though the corn and sweet potato crops have both lost on
account of the rains.








LEVY COUNTY-We are having too much rain for cotton,
shedding and rust is general throughout the county.
Some of the field crops are also short because of too much
rain, and others ate good.
MANATEE COUNTY-Crops have done very well and re-
sults are expected to be good. Fruit trees are in good
condition and there will be a good crop.
MARION COUNTY-Catterpillars have now attacked the
cotton, are doing much damage and increasing rapidly.
Other field crops are doing well and promise good yields.
Fruit trees growing well, and crop small but good.
ORANGE COUNTY-Field crops are only medium, some
are quite good, some poor. Fruit trees doing fine, and
good crop, but not quite as large as last year.
OSCEOLA COUNTY-Crops in this coutny are fine, except
-the fruit crops, which are much lighter than last year. The
fruit trees are doing well.
PAsco COUNTY-The general crops of the farms are
-good and the yields will be satisfactory. The orange
trees are looking fine, but the trees did not bloom well
and the crop is short in consequence.
POLK COUNTY-The farm crops are generally fair, but
not what they ought to be. Fruit trees are doing well,
but the yield will be small by comparison with last year.
ST. JOHNS. COUNTY-All crops and fruit trees in this
county are in fine condition; the yield of crops will be
good also the fruit crops.
ST. LUCIE COUNTY-Our plants and trees are all in the
finest condition, but owing to the cold last winter, and
the drought we will have very little to ship till next year.
SANTA ROSA COUNTY-Cotton is poor; will not make
much more than half a crop. Some of the field crops are
.good and some short, the seasons have been very hard on
all crops.
SUMTER COUNTY-The corn crop is above the average,
but there is considerable damage by rotting in the field,
on account of excessive rains. Other field crops generally
good. Fruit trees generally looking fine, but the crop
will be very short.
SUWANNEE COUNTY-Heavy rains have caused cotton to
shed and rust, and the crop-will be short. Corn crop is






8

fairly good, and the same can be said of other crops. Onu
county will be still self-sustaining. Everything is improv-
ing along all lines.
WASHINGTON COUNTY-Upland cotton'will be short, Sea
Island cotton is good, but there is comparatively a small
quantity of it grown. Some of the field or food crops are
good and some are poor. Pastures are fine.

PART III.
COMMERCIAL FERTILIZERS AND COM-
MERCIAL FEEDING STUFF.









































BI








BUREAU OF FERTILIZERS.

R. E. ROSE, State Chemist. E. E. McLIN, Clerk.


STATE VALUES.
It is not intended by the "State valuation" to fix the
price or commercial value of a given brand. The "State
values" are the market prices for the various approved
chemicals and materials used in mixing or manufacturing
commercial fertilizers, at the date of issuing a bulletin,
or the opening of the "season." They may, but seldom do,
vary from the market prices, and are made liberal to meet
any slight advance or decline.
They are compiled from price lists and commercial re-
ports by reputable dealers and journals.
The question is frequently asked: "What is 'Smith's
Fruit and Vine' worth per ton?" Such a question cannot
be answered categorically. By analysis, the ammonia;
:available phosphoric acid, and potash may be determined,
and the inquirer informed what the cost of the necessary
material to compound a ton of goods similar to "Smith's
Fruit and Vine" would be, using none but accepted and
well known materials of the best quality.
State values do not consider "trade secrets," loss un
bad bills, cost of advertisements, and expenses of collec-
tions. The "State value" is simply that price at which the
various ingredients necessary to use in compounding a fer-
tilizer can.be purchasedfor cash in ton lots at Florida sea
ports.
These price lists, in one, five and ten lots, are published
in this report, with the "State values" for 1905 deducted
therefrom.
The valuation for 1905 being the same as for 1904, ex-
cepting in case of ammonia, which has been advanced to
151/2 cents per pound, or to $3.10 per unit of 20 pounds.








STATE VALUATIONS.
For Available and Insoluble Phosphoric Acid, Ammonia
and Potash for the Season of 1905.
Available Phosphoric Acid 5 cents a pound
Insoluble Phosphoric Acid 1 cent a pound
Ammonia(or its equivalent in nitrogen). 15jcents a pound
Potash (as actual potash, K20) 5 cents a pound
If calculated by units-
Available Phosphoric Acid $1.00 per unit
Insoluble Phosphoric Acid 20 cents per unit
Ammonia (or its equivalent in nitrogen) $3.10 per unit
Potash $1.10 per unit
With a uniform allowance of $1.50 per ton for mixing
and bagging.
A unit is twenty pounds, or 1 per cent in a ton. We
find this to be the easiest and quickest method for calcu-
lating the value of fertilizer. To illustrate this take for
example a fertilizer which analizes as follows:
Available Phosphoric Acid.. 6.'22 per cent x$1.00 6.22
Insoluble Phosphoric Acid.. 1.50 per cent.x 20- .30
Ammonia .................. 3.42 per c.nt.x 3.10- 10.60
Potash.... ......... ...7.23 per cent.x 1.10- 7.95
'Mixing and bagging ......... 1.50

Commercial value at sea ports .. ...... .... .26.57
Or a fertilizer analyzing as follows :
Available phosphoric acid.. -8per cent.xi1 00-$ 8.00
Ammonia- .................... .2 per cent.x 3.10- 6.20'
Potash............. .... 2..2 per cent.x 1-10- 2.20
Mixing and bagging................. ..... 1.50

Commercial value at sea Rorts....... .. .......$17.90
The above valuations are for cash for materials deliv-
ered at Florida seaports, and they can be bought in one
ton lots at these prices at the date of issuing this Bulle-
tin. Where fertilizers are bought at interior points, the
additional freight to that point must be added:
If purchased in car load lots for cash, a reduction of
ten per cent. can be made in above valuations, ', e.:
Available.Phosphoric Acid 9 cents per unit
Potash (K20) - 99 cents per unit
i.mmonia (or equivalent in nitrogen) $2 79 per unit
The valuations and market prices in succeeding illuR-
trations, are based on market prices for one ton lots.

FACTORS FOR CONVERSION.

To convert-
Ammonia into nitrogen, multiply by............ 0.824
Ammonia into Protein by............. ........ 5.15
Nitrogen into ammonia, multiply by............ 1.214
Nitrate of soda into nitrogen, multiply by........ 16.47
Nitrogen into Portein by...................... 6.25
Bone Phosphate into phosphoric acid,multiplied by 0.458
Phosphoric Acid into Bone Phosphate,multiply by 2.184
Murate of Potash into actual potash, multiply by 0.632
Actual potash into Murate potash, multiply by.. 1.533
Sulphate of potash into actual potash, multiply by 0.541
Actual potash into sulphate of potash, multiply by 1.85

For instance you buy 95 per cent. of nitrate of soda and
want to know how much nitrogen in it, multiply 95 per
cent. by 16.47 you will get 15.65 per cent. nitrogen; you
want to know how much ammonia this Nitrogen is equiv-
alent to, then multiply 15.65 per cent. by 1.214 and you
get 18.99 per cent., the equivalent in ammonia.









"The attention of persons sending samples of fer-
tilizers or commercial feeding stuff" for analysis is
.called to the following:
o-
REGULATIONS GOVERNING THE TAKING AND
FORWARDING OF FERTILIZER OR COMMER.
CIAL FEEDING STUFF SAMPLES TO THE
COMMISSIONER OF AGRICULTURE.
-SECTION 15 OF THE LAWS.
Special samples of fertilizers or commercial feeding
stuff sent in by purchasers, under Sec 9 of the laws,
shall be drawn in the presence of two disinterested
witnesses, from one or more packages, thoughly mixed
and a FAIR SAMPLE OF THE SAME OF NOT LESS THAN EIGHT
OUNCES (ONE.HALF POUND), SHALL BE PLACED IN A CAN OR
BOTTLE, SEALED AND SENT BY A DISINTERESTED PARTY TO
THE COMMISSIONEt OF AGRICULTURE AT TALLAHASSEE. NOT
LESS THAN EIGHT OUNCES, IN A TIN CAN OR BOTTLE, WILL
BE ACCEPTED FOR ANALYSIS. This rule is adopted to se-
cure fair samples of sufficient size tomake the necessary
determinations, and to allow the preservation of a du-
plicate sample in case of protest or appeal. These du-
plicate samples will be preserved for two months from
date of certificate of analysis.
The State Chemist is not the proper officer to re-
ceive special samples from the purchaser. The propri-
ety of the method of drawing and sending the samples
as fixed by the law is obvious.
The drawing and sending of special samples in rare
cases is in compliance with law. Samples are frequently
sent in paper packages or paper boxes, badly packed,
and frequently in very smallquantity (less than ounce)
frequently there are no marks. numbers or other means
of identification. The postmark in some instances being
absent.
I would call the attention of those who desire to
avail themselves of this privilege to Sections 9 and 10
of the law, which are clear and explicit.
Hereafter strict compliance with above regulations
will be required. The sample must be not less than one
half pound, in a can or bottle, sealed and addressed to the









Commissioner of Agriculture, the sender, name and ad-
dress must also be on the package. This rule applying to
special samples of fertilizers or commercial feeding stuff.

INSTRUCTIONS TO MANUFACTURERS AND
DEALERS.

Each package of Commercial Fertilizer, and each pack-
age of Commercial Feeding Stuff, (after August 22, 1905,
must have, securely attached thereto, a tag with the guar-
anteed analysis required by law, and the stamp showing
the payment of the inspector's fee. This provision of the
law-Section 3 of.both laws-will be rigidly enforced.
Manufacturers and dealers will be required to properly
tag and stamp each package of Commercial Fertilizer or
Commercial Feeding Stuff under penalty as fixed in Sec-
tion 6, of both laws, tags shall be attached to the top
end of each bag, or head of each barrel.

INSTRUCTIONS TO PURCHASERS.

Purchasers are cautioned to purchase no Commerci,l
Fertilizers or Commercial Feeding Stuff (after August
22, 1905), that does not bear on each package an analysis
tag with the guarantee required by law, and the stamp
showing the payment of the inspectors fee. Goods not
having the guarantee tug and stamp, are irregular, and
fr:"Iullcntl: tle absence of the guarantee tag and stamp
being evidence that the m:ianufacturer or dealer has not
coulljied with the law. Without the guarantee tag and
s(i!p; :-!,:owing what tle goods are guaranteed to contain,
the purclaser has no recourse against the manufacturer
or dealer. such goods are sold illegally and fraudulently,
and are generally of little value. Allreputable manufac-
turers and dealers now comply strictly with the law and
regulations by placing the guarantee tag and stamp on
each package.
The interest of the consumer, the farmer, or stockman,
dlwminds tlhijt they murcliise no Commercial Fertilizers,
or Commercial Feeding Stuff (after August 22, 1905,1
1-1tt does not have securely attached, the guarantee tag.
and inspection stamp.









INSTRUCTIONS TO SHERIFFS.

The attention of the Sheriffs of the various counties
is called to Section 3 of both laws, defining their duties.
This department expects each Sheriff to assist in main-
taining the law and protecting the citizens of the State
from the imposition of fraudulent, inferior, or deficient
Commercial Fertilizers or Commercial Feeding Stuff.
B. E. McLIN,
Commissioner of Agriculture.

The following tables of average composition of Commer-
cial Feed Stuff is compiled from the report of the Con-
neticut Experimental Station. They cover a large num-
ber of analysis and are fully representative of the stand-
ard composition of the various feeds in the tables. They
are given for reference, should a feed stuff vary material-
ly from these averages, its purity may be questioned. If
the "ash" content exceed to any great extent, sweepings
may be suspected. If the crude fiber be excessive, oat
hulls, corn cobs, or other liguous or fibrous materials may
be suspected. While the valuable.constituents, "protein"
"sugar and starch," and "fat," should not materially vary
from these tables of averages, that are practically stand-
ards of comparison, for the feeds mentioned in the tables.

For values see heading Bureau of Fertilizers."
NOTE-This department is not aware'of the source of the goods, or the names of manufacturers
of "Special Samples sent in by purchasers. Dealers frequently send in samples of goods for ex-
amination before purchasing. A Special Sample" sent in by a dealer or manufacturer hence is not
an evidence that the goods are offered by him for sale. The "Official Samples" taken by the State
Chemist, or his assistant, on following pages, state the name of the goods and the manufacturers, the
guaranteed analysis, and the amount of fertilizing ingredients found by the State Chemist.
Moisture not determined in samples sent in paper or wood boxes.
Tobacco stems and tobacco dust contain some phosphoric acid, but it is bought for the potash and
ammonia content. Cotton seed meal contains some phosphoric acid and some potash, but is bought
for the ammonia content.
Where only the insoluble phosphoric acid is given in the table, it has been determined as total
phosphoric acid.
Not less than eight ounces (+ pound), is required for a "Special Sample."
Special attention is called to the "Caution to Purchasers of Cotton Seed Meal" on another page.
This adulterated meal is sold as bright or prime meal---though the guarantee is but 41 per cent. of
ammonia- -it is evidently adulterated with rice hulls, its value is but little more than half that of
prime meal.

SUPERPHOSPHATES.



DISSOLVED BONE VS. ACID PHOSPHATE.


By R. E. Rose, State Chemist.
These questions are frequently asked of Chemists and of
Experimental Stations, "Which is the most valuable, agri-
cultarly speaking, 'Dissolved Bone,' or 'Acid Phosphate?'
Which is the most available form of Phosphate?"
The reply if honestly given is, that the phosphate in
either, is identical in every way. The material used in
one case, being bones and sulphuric acid, in the other min-
eral phosphates-Florida Carolina or Tennessee rock
phosphate-and sulphuric acid. The result being super-
phosphate, a mixture of Gypsum (Sulphate of Lime) and
Phosphoric Acid. In both cases the original "bone" and
"rock" is composed of lime and phosphoric acid in com-
bination, and insoluable. The sulphuric acid combines
with the lime in the bones, or rock, and frees, or makes
soluable, the "Phosphoric Acid." Though sulphuric acid
is used in dissolving-bones and rock, to form super-phos-
phates, there remains no free acid, in the material after
combination. The sulphuric acid combines with the lime,
to form a neutral salt, Gypsum, or sulphate of lime,
Super-phosphate, made of bones, or rock, is a mixture of
Gypsum; a neutral salt, and phosphoric acid.
Much prejudice still exists as to the use of rock phos-
phates, hence the demand for bone phosphates has caused
many-if not most- manufacturers of "acid phosphates"
-as distinguished from "bone phosphates"-to call their
product "Dissolved Bone."
Probably ninety per cent. of all the super-phosphates of
the world are made from rock phosphates. Florida ships
a million of tons of phosphate rock annually.. Probably,
also, most of them are sold as "Dissolved Bone" or "Dis-
solved Bone Black," which is generally "Dissolved Rock"
with a little carbon, coal or lamp black added to give it
color.










Most of the bone used for fertilizers, of which there is
comparatively a small supply, is used as "raw bone," or
"steamed bone," or bone meal. There is evidence that
considerable "Steamed Bone" is largely adulterated with
rock phosphate. Bone contains a certain amount of am-
monia, though thousands of tons of "Bone and Potash"
are sold which contain no ammonia-showing that no
bones were used in'.its composition.
While dealers and manufacturers charge from six to
"ten dollars more for "Dissolved Bone," than for "Acid
Phosphate," the facts are bones are seldom used in the
manufacture of the super-phosphate.
This prejudice is widespread and is used by manufac-
turers and dealers to unfairly charge a greater price for
goods than the same goods can be had for when called by
a different name.
Excepting the ammonia content, which is the most
valuable ingredient of any fertilizer, there is no difference
in the value per unit of phosphoric acid made from bones
'or rocks.
If farmers, and growers, will understand that "Super-
Phosphates," made from bones are practically unknown to
the trade; that thousands of tons of "Dissolved Bone" are
made by the various acid phosphate manufacturers With-
out bones, that practically all bones are sold as "Raw
Bone," "Bone Meal," or "Steamed Bone," and that the
phosphoric acid of bones and rock are identical, chemical-
ly and agriculturally, this imposition will be checked.
It has been suggested that the term "Dissolved Bone"
or "Dissolved Bone Black," should be allowed only when
bones are actually used in the fertilizer. Unfortunately
there is no means to detect the difference between super-
phosphates, made from bone or rock.
Many efforts have been made by agricultural chemists
of this and other countries to distinguish them, so far
*without results.
"Dissolved Bone" and "Dissolved Bone Black" have be-
come trade names, for super-phosphates. They are in
most cases, if not in all, simply dissolved phosphate rock,
while in the case of "Dissolved Bone Black" a small
amount of carbon, coal or lamp black is added for color.









From the same lot of super-phosphate made by a fac-
tory-where no bones are used-"Acid Phosphate," "Dis-
solved Bone" and "Dissolved Bone Black," (by adding a
little carbon) can be sold-the only difference being in
the price to the consumer-as the mixer purchases it on
its "uint basis," and knows full well that no bones are
used in its make up. While a few tons of bones are
sometimes used for advertisement, and a few tons of
Spent Bone Black from sugar factories are received, 90
per cent. of all the waste bones are sold as raw bone,
and the Spent Bone Black is generally used locally-by
growers near the factories, or on the sugar fields owned
by the factory.
