CONDENSED NOTES OF CORRESPONDENTS-BY
DIVISIONS.

NORTHERN DIVISION-Up to this date, September 15th,
the cotton crop o fthe entire district, almost without ex-
ception is in very bad condition, attributable principally
to the excessive rain of the past three and a half months,
and to the inability of the farmer to properly cultivate
the crop and keep it clean of weeds and grass, because of
the great scarcity of labor as well as the excessive rains.
The plant has fruited poorly, and is showing serious
rust, and shedding in many localities; many fields
throughout the belt are hopelessly ruined. It is the
opinion of many well informed cotton growers that un-
less a speedy change comes in weather conditions that
the crop will be reduced to at least one half of last years
crop. The great excess of water fall has also had an ad-
verse effect on nearly every other crop drowning out al-
most entirely a number of the smaller crops. The yields
will average much lower than usual on account of the
rain.
WESTERN DIVISION-This Division has fared little bet-
ter than the Northern; the same continuous heavy rains
have prevailed here also, and farmers from all parts of
the district agree that the crop will be at least one third
short; that the cotton has been greatly damaged and
picking of that which is open is greatly retarded. The
other field crops have not suffered from the excessive rains
to the extent that they have in the Northern Division, and
the yields of the ordinary provision crops will average
up well. The wet weather has made the pastures good
and the grass will be able to stand the usual dry weather
better and for a longer period when it does come, en-
abling live stock to keep in better condition than usual
without extra feed.










NORTHEASTERN DIVISION-In this Division as in the pre-
ceding ones, excessive rains have been disastrous to cotton
and corn, and have greatly retarded the culture of all
other crops. Cotton and corn will be short 30 to 40 per
cent, and the hay crop though the grass is fine, will be
lost unless the weather becomes more suitable to cutting
and curing it. This same condition applies to the hay
crop in other sections of the State. All provision crops
will be short of an average yield, unless a speedy change
in the weather condition takes place, even then a number
of them will not be able to make good.
CENTRAL DivisioN-Continued rains have greatly in-
jured corn, potatoes and similar crops in many portions
of this District; in some others, crop prospects for good
yields in farming were never better. Fruit crops are al-
most universally fine and the average considerably above
last year; the citrus fruit crops are specially fine and
there will be a large increase in both orange and grape
fruit over last years yields. So far in this district the
crop season have been a most successful one, the fruit
and vegetable crops paying the growers well. The rains
have been long continued and at times very heavy. but it
has been greatly to the advantage of the citrus fruit
trees.
SOUTHERN DIVISION-In this Division our correspond-
ents with one accord report all crops in excellent condi-
tion; the vegetable crops marketed were the most re-
munerative ever grown, as well as the largest. The fruit
crops were all good, the pineapple crop being not only
the largest for mny years, but the most profitable; the
prospects for the crops coming on are exceptionally fine.
and will unquestionably show a large increase over last
year. The rainy summer has made it the best in many
years; has been of untold benefit in most localities to the
citrus trees. This has also been one of the most favorable
seasons for range pastures, the continued rains producing
grass in great abundance and good quality affording
plenty of the finest grazing for the immense herds of cat-
tle that feed upon it.

PART II,
COMMERCIAL FERTILIZERS AND COM,
MERCIAL FEEDING STUFF.
2 Bul.

















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 COMMISSIONER 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 senders 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 must have, securely
attached thereto, a tag with the guaranteed 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 Commercial
Fertilizers or Commercial Feeding Stuff that does not
bear on each package an analysis tag with the guarantee
required by law, and the stamp showing the payment of
the inspector's fee. Goods not having the guarantee tag
and stamp, are irregular, and fraudulent; the absence of
the guarantee tag and stamp being evidence that the man-
ufacturer or dealer has not complied with the law.
Without the guarantee tag and stamp showing what the
goods are guaranteed to contain, the purchaser has no
recourse against the manufacturer or dealer, such goods
are sold illegally and fraudulently, and are generally of
little value. All reputable manufacturers 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,
demands that they purchase no Commercial Fertilizers,
of Commercial Feeding Stuff that 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, rice chaff or other ligneous or fibrous
materials may be suspected. While the valuable consti-
tuents, "protein" "sugar and starch," and "fat," should
not materially vary from these tables of averages, that
are practically standards of comparison, for the feeds
mentioned in the tables.

COPIES OF THE FERTILIZER LAW.

Citizens interested in the fertilizer and stock feed laws
of the State, and desiring to avail themselves of their pro-
tection, can obtain copies free of charge by sending for
same to the Commissioner of Agriculture.

Note-Consumers are urged to compare the current
prices with the "Feeding Value" as shown in the tables
of analysis of feed stuff. It will be noted that Middlings
and Bran at the prices quoted are more economical than
other feeds, which sell for more per ton and are far be-
low the standard in value. Low grade feeds, mill offall,
and similar feed, are largely advertised and sell for
higher prices than standards, though of much less value.
A comparison of these prices and the tables will show
that prices does not govern value or quality; that some of
the highest priced feeds have less value than others that
can be purchased for less money. The effect of the
"Stock Feed Law" has already been of marked benefit to
the State. A number of low grade feeds, with fancy
brands, and largely advertised, have been to large extent
withdrawn from the State. If consumers will carefully
steady the table sof analysis of various brands, and com-
pare them with the market prices, and purchase only
those that compare favorably in quality and price, in-
ferior feeds will soon disappear from the State.












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.. 1.583
Sulphate of potash into actual potash, multiply by 0.541
Actual potash into sulphate of potash, multiply by 1.85
Nitrate of potash into nitrogen, multiply by...... 0.139
Carbonate of potash into actual potash, multiply by 0.681
Actual potash into carbonate of potash, multiply by 1.4i6
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.












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 1906 deducted
therefrom.
The valuation for 1906 being the same as for 1905.












STATE VALUATIONS.
For Available and Insoluble Phosphoric Acid, Ammonia
and Potash for the Season of 1906.
Available Phosphoric Acid 5 cents a pound
Insoluble Phosphoric Acid 1 cent a pound
Ammonia(or its equivalent in nitrogen). 15cents 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 cent.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 .. 8 per cent.x$1.00-$ 8.00
Ammonia .... ........... .2 per cent.x 3.10- 6.20
Potash...................... 2 per cent.x 1-10- 2.20
Mixing and bagging.. ................ ....... 1.50

Commercial value at sea ports ..................$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, i, e.:
Available Phosphoric Acid 90 cents per unit
Potash (K20) 99 cents per unit
Ammonia (or equivalent in nitrogen) $2.79 per unit
The valuations and market prices in succeeding illus-
trations, are based on market prices for one ton lots.













SPECIAL SAMPLES.


It is shown by the number of "Special Samples" (those
sent in direct by the purchaser of fertilizers) that the
law is becoming more generally understood by the farmer,
fruit and vegetable grower. Purchasers who have any
reason to doubt the correctness of the guarantee on the
goods furnished them, do not hesitate to send in samples
for analysis.
This right to have a sample of the goods purchased
analyzed by the State Chemist, under Section 9 of the law
-without charge-the inspection fees covering the cost of
analysis, as well as inspection-has doubtless had a di-
rect influence upon the increased quality of the goods sold
in the State. When properly drawn, sealed, witnessed
and transmitted, the "Special Sample" has proved a safe-
guard to the consumer, legitimate dealer, and manufac-
turer, and a check upon the careless, ignorant, or fraud-
ulent vendor or manufacturer.
It furnishes the consumer with the same protection de-
manded by the manufacturer, who buys his materials only
upon the guarantee, and pays for them according to an-
alysis.
By far the largest amount of commercial fertilizers used
in Florida, are manufactured or mixed by factories in
the State. Large amounts of fertlizing materials are im-
ported direct by factories, and dealers located at our sea
port cities; cargoes of potash salts direct from Germany
are now frequently received by Florida importers, while
large amounts of acid phosphate are manufactured at and
exported from the various Gulf and Atlantic ports.
Florida consumers may now purchase their fertilizers
and chemicals at Florida sea ports as cheaply as at any of
the sea ports of the country.
On a preceding page a table of the "Average Composition of
Commercial Feed Stuffs" will be found. Consumers should
study this table, select the food best suited to his demands-
price of course considered-see that the "Guarantee" on the
package he purchases compares favorable with the average in
the table, and if doubtful of the truth of the statement on the
"Guarantee' send at once a sample of the suspected material to
the Commissioner of Agriculture at Tallahassee. Send one-haft
pound in a "tin can sealed," as provided by law.










LIGHT WEIGHT--FALSE STATEMENTS.

Some complaint has been made recently as to falwme to
furnish full weight as guaranteed.
In one case of light weight cotton seed meal, diomverd
by the Inspector, the goods were sold by the sheriff, a
provided by law.
Other cases have 'been reported, particularly "Kainit&."
The public, dealers, and consumers, are cautioned to
examine their purchases, and in case of doubt, have the
sacks weighed at the railroad station, or at the ware-
house-reporting deficiencies in weight if found to exist,
with names of sellers, manufacturers and witnesses to the
weighing and other facts, and circumstances. This
applies to fertilizers, and feeding stuff-(also to grain
and other articles).
The department is desirous of maintaining the standard
of both quality and quantity as expressed in the gauar-
antee, and to this end requests the active co-operation of
all citizens.
A false statement of weight on grain or feed, is a misde-
meanor, and subjects the seller to fine or imprisonment,
or both, under Chapter 4976 (No. 92) Acts of 1901. Also
the sale of light weight fertilizer and feed s-uff, subjects
the seller to a fine and forfeiture of the goods, under the
Fertilizer and Feed Stuff Laws.

ASHES, HARD WOOD, PALMETTO, CANADA
ASHES.

The attention of purchasers, dealers and consumers, is
called to the analysis of various ashes, hard wood and
otherwise, in this and other reports, seldom do these ashes
cantain more than 3 per cent of potash-frequently less
than 1 per cent; as the potash content is the only fertil-
izing ingredient (excepting a very small amount of phos-
phoric acid) it becomes a very expensive source of potash.
Most of the ashes examined by the department have evi-
dently been leached. Ashes should be purchased strictly
upon guarantee (as should all other fertilizers and feeds)
and the seller held strictly to his guarantee.
There are many ions of ashes used a, a fertilizer in this
State. When they can be purchased at a price compara-
ble with their actual value they are doubtless a most val-
uable source of potash. The average price of these goods is,
however, far in excess of their value. Potash obtained
from this source generally costs much more than from
other reliable sources-Sulphate, or Muriate of Potash,
Kainit or Sylvilite. Samples of Hickory, Maple, Palmetto
and other so-called Hardwood Ashes, examined this
season, show from 0.57 to 4.24 per cent. of Potash, worth
from $0.62 to $4.66 per ton at seaports. The average of
four samples shows 2.56 per cent. of Potash. Guarantees
are generally 2 to 8 per cent. Potash. The mimimum is 'he
actual guarantee. The best unleached ashes contain but
8 per cent.; ordinarily less than 5 per cent.

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 (i 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 4. per cent. of
ammonia---it is evidently adulterated with rice hulls, its value is but little more than half that of
prime meal.

NOTICE-The especial attention of consumers and dealers is called to the following paragraph:
Consumers desiring to avail themselves of the provisions of Sec. 9, of the Laws. providing for "Special Samples" drawn by
consumers, are requested to read carefully Sec. 9. of the Laws and the "Rules and Regulations Governing the taking and for-
warding Special Samples of Feed Stuff and Fertilizers" found on a preceding page of the report. Also to compare the "official
analysis," and the "market value," of various feeds sold in the State.
It will be found that In a number of cases, the "market value," or price, is no criterion of the actual feeding value, of the
goods. That in several instances the highest "market value" is placed on the most inferior goods.
Consumers should compare the guaranteed tag on the bag, with the table of "average composition of feed stuff." In case of
doubt as to the truthfulness of the guarantee, draw a sample, according to law, and regulations, and send In a tin box sealed,
to the 'Commissioner of Agriculture." Preserve the "guaranteed tags" off the packages, to compare with the result, of the
analysis of the sample by the State Chemist.

SPECIAL NOTICE-The attention of dealers and consumers. is called to the table of "average composition of Feed Stnffs" on
a proceeding page. This table shows approximately the composition of the various food stuffs sold throughout the country. Any
material variation, from these averages. is presumptive evidence of Impurity or adulterralltn.
A careful examination of the foregoing tables is recommended to both dealers and consumers. The guarantee of the manu-
facturer, should not vary materially from this table of average while the "official analysis" slui(ld show practically lhe same
composition as the guarantee. Dealers and consumers. are requested in all cases of suspleted inferiority, or adulteration to
send a sample at once to the Commissioner of Agriculture for analysis.












COMMERCIAL FEEDING STUFF.


Importance of the "Special Sample."


The use of commercial stock feed in Florida, in propor-
tion to the number of inhabitants, and amount of live
stock, is perhaps greater than in any other Southenr
State.
Most dairymen, turpentine operators, orange growers,
and vegetable producers purchase the greater part of the
stock feed used by them.
While this is by no means necessary, no State offering
greater advantages for the economical production of stock
feed than Florida.
Both the "proteins" (flesh former) represented by the
cotton seed, beggar weed, cow peas, velvet beans, and
other legumes, and the "carbohydrates" (sugar and
starches, fat former) such as sugar cane, sweet potatoes,
cassava, rice, etc., are economically produced, at a com-
paratively little cost for culture and harvest. Still the
fact remains that a very large amount of the feeds used
in the State are imported from other States. A careful
inspection of the tables of analysis will show that these
feeds consist largely of the byproducts of various cereline
factories, brewers' grains, gluten feeds, and other similar
waste, or byproduct of factories, to say they vary con-
siderably in feeding value is unnecessary. An examin-
ation of the analysis shows this wide variation, while an
examination of the prices current in comparison with the
analysis will also show that quality by no means fixes
price.
The stock feed law has very much improved the quality
of feeds sold in the State, has eliminated a number of in-
ferior feeds, and has to a large extent regulated the price
of commercial stock feed, while the feeding value of a
number of brands has been materially increased by requir-
ing manufacturers to keep their goods up to their guar-
antee.
The local dealer, the country store keeper, and the con-
sumer, can, and should, however, take more interest in
the enforcement of the law, and assist the Commissioner
6 Bul.











of Agriculture in eliminating the deficient and costly feed
from the State.
This can be most effectively done by the citizen, the
dealer and consumer cooperating with the State officials.
As in the fertillizer law, the consumer (or dealer) has the
right at all times to send to the Commissioner of Agri-
culture a sample of any feed he purchases for analysis,
to find out if the manufacturer has or has not fully met
his guarantee. This has worked most satisfactorily in
the case of fertilizers. Large numbers of "special
samples of fertilizers (drawn by the purchaser) are sent
to the Commissioner of Agriculture for confirmation of
the guarantee. This has worked no hardship on the
reputable manufacturer of honest goods; on the contrary
it has proved the correctness of his statements, while it
has eliminated a number or fraudulent or inferior ferti-
lizers.
It is therefore urged upon the dealer and consumer that
in all cases where inferior, damaged or fraudulent feeds
are suspected that a sample be sent to the Commissioner
of Agriculture for analysis,when in case of material
deficiency in quality, below the guarantee, the buyer can
recover damages from the manufacturer. This not only
protects the particular citizen, but prevents to a large
extent future sales of such brands inthe State.
A considerable quantity of inferior feeds have been
seized and sold by -the State officers during the past
qu;:ri er. With the hearty cooperation of the Florida mer-
chant and consumer, the elimination of inferior and gen-
er;lly high priced stock feed from the State can soon be
accomplished.
The following notice by the Commissioner of Agricult-
ure is part;culrly commended to the attention of the
Flrida merchant and consumer of commercial stock

R. E. ROSE.
State Chemist.
