Immature citrus fruit samples reported............. 12

Those samples found adulterated or misbranded have
been reported to the proper officer. In all cases the dealers
and manufacturers have corrected the labels by placing
the proper labels on the goods or by withdrawing the
offending materials from the market.
Few prosecutions have been found necessary to enforce
the provisions of the law.

NET WEIGHT AND MEASURE.

The trade is now generally well supplied with packages
of food, the labels of which show correctly the net weight
or measure of the contents.
There still remains more or less of old stock that was
legally on hand, when the law went into effect.
Such stock can not be legally sold after February 1st,
without the net weight or measure being properly stated
on the label.
Dealers, and particularly retail dealers, are coutiohed
that after February 1st, 1913, the labels on all packages












of food must fully comply with the Pure Food Law--old
stock as well as new.
The agreement made with dealers on June 18, 1912,
allowing until February 1st, 1913, to dispose of such old
stock as was still legally on hand when the law was ap-
proved-will become void, and all goods must fully com-
ply with the law, after February 1st, 1913.

BENZOATES, AND OTHER CHEMICAL PRESERVA-
TIVES.

The same ruling applies to foods containing Benzuates
and other chemical preservatives. Foods containing Ben-
zoates or other chemical preservatives, cannot be legally
sold after February 1, 1913. This applies to old stock. or
new stock.
There are in the State numerous brands of pure,
wholesome, non-preservative goods, of excellent quality,
sold at the same prices (to the consumer) as questionable
goods, chemically preserved.
While there are some chemically preserved goods, made
from sound materials, under sanitary conditions, they are
the exception, and not the rule.
The presence of chemical preservatives can therefore
be taken generally as an indication of unsound material.
and unsanitary conditions of manufacture, preservati-ve
being generally employed to prevent further decomposi-
tion of partially decayed materials, and offset the effect
of unclean methods of manufacture.
Retail dealers and consumers are cautioned that goods
containing Benzoates or other chemical preservatives, can
not be legally sold after February 1, 1913.
Many of the largest and most successful packers have
voluntarily abandoned preservatives, finding them unnec-
essary, when sound fruit or vegetables are used under
proper sanitary conditions-and also that the presence of












preservatives, to a certain extent, decreased their sales,
it being now generally understood that preservatives in-
dicate inferior material, and careless handling.

IMMATURE CIT-RUS FRUIT.

The Pure Food Division of this Department, devoted a
large part of its time, from June 1 to August 15, to the
study of the various analyses of oranges.
Since September 1st, a careful study has been made of
Florida oranges of different varieties, from localities well
distributed over the State, systematically gathered and
sent in by numerous growers. This is probably the first
systematic effort to determine the chemical changes in
citrus fruit during the process of ripening.
The special study made and submitted to the Gaines-
ville Convention of Orange Growers-as published in the
October Bulletin 1912, indicates very conclusively that a
chemical standard of maturity can, after a careful analyt-
ical study, be arrived at.
Some 311 analysis of oranges have been made. These
analyses will be tabulated, by date, variety, and locality,
summaries made and conclusions drawn, in order that the
orange growers of the State may have a basis on which to
establish a chemical standard of maturity, if desired.
The advantages or disadvantages of a law prohibiting
the shipment of immature citrus fruit, must of necessity,
be decided by the growers themselves.
If such a law is desirable, it follows that a standard
must be fixed by the growers, and enacted into the law.
The Agricultural Department, though intrusted with
the fixing of standards, can do so only when such stand-
ard is agreed upon by the parties interested in the busi-
ness.
I believe that a careful study of the analytical results
of this season's work will readily show the ripening pro-
cess.












It remains for the grower, and the consumer to agree
at what degree of sweetness an orange ceases to be unripe
or immature, and becomes a ripe and wholesome fruit.
The detailed results of this study and conclusions
drawn will be published in a special pamphlet at as early
a date as practical, and also in the April Bulletin for
1913.
It is to be hoped that the orange growers of the State,
associated and independent, will agree upon some fair
means, either by law or commercial custom, to prevent
the shipment of immature citrus fruit-a custom acknowl-
edged by all growers to be detrimental to the business.
not only in Florida but to other citrus growing countries.
Notices have been received by this division. from the
V. S. Department of Agriculture, of numerous seizures
of cars of immature California oranges-as many as six
cars in one week-and eight cars another week indicating
that California also has trials and vexations caused by
shipping immature citrus fruit.
It is very evident that the consumer of oranges and
grape fruit, has discovered that immature citrus fruit
are not desirable or palatable, and declines to be victim-
ized by unripe oranges, though they may be "yellowed"
by holding for some time in unventilated cars under a hot
sun.
Also that the Health Authorities, both State and Na-
tional, have decided to prevent the sale of such immature
and unwholesome citrus fruit.

EVERGLADE SOILS.

The demand for information as to the chemical com-
position and productiveness of Everglade soils, on account
of the extensive publicity given to the progress orf lie
canals now being cut by the State, from Lake Okeechobee
to tide water on the Gulf and Atlantic-into which ihe












adjacent lands may be drained, by the construction of the
necessary lateral canals and ditches by their owners-has
induced this Division to analyse a series of samples of
Everglade soils.
Some thirty-five samples were taken at different points
through the center of the Glades, from Lake Okeechobee
to Miami, by United States, and State Inspectors. Dupli-
cate samples were taken to be analyzed by the United
States and Florida Chemical Divisions.
These analyses show nothing new. No new information
has been gained. Analyses of Everglade soil and other
Florida muck lands have been made on a number of
previous occasions by eminent chemists; Official Chemists
and others of repute and scientific prominence, and pub-
lished in various Official documents, and scientific jour-
nals.
The U. S. Department of Agriculture, 1891; The Flor-
ida Agricultural Experiment Station, 1897 (Bulletin No.
43) ; with numerous analyses made by this Division dur-
ing the past twelve years, and published in the various
Quarterly Bulletins and reports.
While these analyses simply confirm former analyses
made by divers laboratories and chemists, they are the
first complete series of Everglade soils, taken consecu-
tively and carefully, the entire distance from Lake Okee-
chobee to the Atlantic edge of the Glades, through their
center, near the banks of the newly cut canals.
The analyses show, as do those formerly made and
alluded to, an exceedingly high nitrogen content, with
comparatively small percentages of Potash and Phos-
phates. There is no deficiency in these soils of Potash and
Phosphates when compared to other productive, agricul-
tural soils, only in comparison to the excessive nitrogen
content is the deficiency of Potash and Phosphate nota-
ble. The average nitrogen percentage (as Ammonia) for
the series is 3.10%, while the average Potash is 0.0S',













and Phosphate 0.18%. Many brands of commercial fer-
tilizer have a less percentage of nitrogen than the average
soils of the Everglades.
This excessive nitrogen content is not peculiar to the
Peat, or Muck Lands of Florida, but is common to simi-
lar lands of the Western States-Iowa, Illinois, Michigan
and California-where vast areas of similar lands have
been reclaimed by drainage, and where record crops of
foliage plants-lettuce, celery, cabbage, onions, etc.. are
produced without the addition of commercial fertilizer,
and where on the application of small amounts of Potash
and Phosphates, large crops of starch producing crops are
grown-corn, oats, potatoes, etc.
This applies equally to Florida muck, either in the
Glades or elsewhere. When properly drained, to remove
the excess of water replacing the water by air, thus oxidiz-
ing the muck, or decomposing it. it becomes a soil resemb-
ling a "potting mold," of extreme fertility.
This soil, without added Potash and Phosphates. will
grow large crops of foliage plants. It will also produce
large crops of cane, corn, rice and potatoes, with exceed-
ingly heavy stalk, straw and vine, but a comparatively
small yield of sugar, or grain. This however, is again
only comparative, as the yield of sugar or grain is more
than equal to that produced on adjacent soil.
The application however, of Potash and Phosphate will
very greatly increase the yield of sugar and grain
(starch), without at all affecting the size or weight of
the plant.
Thllis however, is not a peculiar quality oi Florida muck
or peat soils. Experience has shown that the same con-
ditions exist in the West-that the application of Potash
and Phosphates in limited amount, results in largely in-
creased crops of all kinds-on the muck or peat lands of
Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Nebraska and California.
These analyses, together with the crops now growing











on such Everglade lands as have been properly drained,
and other similar soils in Florida and other States, when
thoroughly and perfectly drained, should set at rest the
question of the productiveness of Everglade soil, when
properly drained.
If not perfectly drained, such soils are valueless and
unproductive. When perfectly drained, no soil is more
productive.
As nitrogen is the predominating element necessary for
the production of foliage crops, pasture grasses, meadows,
sugar cane and similar plants, these Glade lands will be-
come--when perfectly drained-not only valuable as sugar
cane and rice fields, but will afford abundant crops of
pasture and meadow grasses.
The heavy growth of Para grass, Rhodes grass, Ber-
muda and millet now growing on these lands, though not
yet perfectly drained, fully establishes their value for a
vast live stock industry, both for dairy farming and beef
cattle.

COMMERCIAL FEED STUFF.

There were consumed in the State during 1912, 125,856
tons of commercial feed stuff-not including hay, corn,
oats, and other stock feed not subject to inspection.
The average value of this imported feed stuff was $30.00
per ton, or a total of $3,775,680, a sum which should be
retained in the State by producing this feed stuff on her
own fields and pastures, thus retaining this vast, sum
among her citizens.
No state produces a larger variety of grasses,-native
grass, and newly introduced varieties-pasture and
meadow grasses.
Bermuda, Crab Grass, Para, Natal and Rhodes Grass
grow luxuriantly and yield large crops of excellent











pasture-grass, and hay. These grasses are peculiarly
adapted to well drained flat woods, prairies, and reclaimed
muck land. With little exertion, pastures and meadows
are readily established.

Among the legumes, the velvet bean and the Lyon bean
(related to the velvet bean), cowpeas of the various
kinds, and Japanese Kudzu, are best adapted to the soil
and the climate of Florida.

Their yield compares favorably with the clovers, and
alfalfas of other states, while their feeding value is
equally as great.
For cattle and hogs, no forage crop exceeds Japanese
sugar cane, which grows profusely. When once estab-
lished, it will continue to reproduce itself annually with-
out replanting, yielding from ten to twenty tone of green
forage per acre, rich in sugar, a superior "fat former."
Japanese Kudzu-a perennial legume-will continue to
reproduce itself, when once established.
This combination of Japanese sugar cane. and Japanese
Kudzu will furnish continuous forage, of both the Car-
bohydrates Ifat former) and the Proteins (flesh for-
mers), an ideal balanced ration for live stock of any
kind-beef cattle, dairy farming or hog raising. The
chemical analysis and feeding value of these forage plants
is given among others in this report.
The Bulletins of the Florida Agricultural Experiment
Station, Gainesville, give detailed reports of feeding
experiments with the Japanese cane and velvet bean.
It is gratifying to note that while there are still large
sums expended for imported stock feed, that many of our
farmers are now producing their own forage and feed-
and that a very considerable amount of first class domes-
tic hay, equal in every way to clover, alfalfa, or timothy,
is now to be found in local markets.








15

PRAIRIE PASTURE LANDS.

It is not generally known that there are large areas of
prairie lands in Florida, on which large herds of native
cattle are found.

Individual herds of from 500 to 10,000 head are not un-
common on the prairies bordering the upper St. Johns,
the Kissimmee and the Miaka Rivers-in Brevard,
Orange, St. Lucie, Osceola, DeSoto, Lee and Manatee
Counties.

The grasses names-Bermuda, Para, Natal and Rhodes
grasses, when established, grow luxuriantly on these
prairies and flat woods, when properly drained. Velvet
beans, Kudzu and Japanese cane are also being rapidly
introduced in the cattle district.
While the value of the native grasses-largely Pas-
palums (carpet grass) is attested by the thousands of fat
cattle annually shipped from these prairie pastures, of
which there are probably two million acres within the
counties named, prairies that naturally produce grasses
equal to any of the Western States, and on which cattle
are pastured the entire year, where grass is abundant, and
where lakes and streams, to say nothing of Artesian wells,
furnish a constant supply of pure water.
With her productive soil, abundant rainfall, semi-tropi-
cal climate, lakes and streams-where cattle can be past-
ured in the open the entire year, with no necessity for
expensive barns, will !:i numerous native grasses and
legumes, adapted to her soil and climate, together with
such as have been introduced from other tropical and
semi-tropical countries, Florida should, and will in a few
years, become one of the leading beef cattle and dairy
states of the Union, producing not only the necessary
food for her flocks but as large an amount for export
as is now imported.










INCREASING DEMAND FOR ANALYTICAL DATA.
INCREASING REVENUE OF THE
DIVISION.

This report shows, as do the previous reports since
1901, a uniform, steady increase in the work demanded of
the Chemical Division, with a similar uniform increase in
the revenues of the Division.
The gross revenue for 1912, being S82,820.55-expenses
S1.,.2-.7.41 showing a net balance to the credit of the
General Revenue Fund of SG7,563.14-as compared to a
gross revenue of $71,353.25 and a net balance of 855.438.70
for 1911-a net gain of $12,124.44 over 1911.
The analytical work shows a larger proportionate in-
crease-1,192 complete analyses, as compared to 958 for
1911-an increase of 234 analyses.
This increase is largely attributed to the unusual de-
mand on the analytical force from September 1. until
December 31, in alyzing the 311 samples of citrus fruit.
The Food and Drug Analyst, with an assistant con-
stantly, while on occasion the services of the Stock Feed
Analyst were necessary. Should the demand for the
analysis of citrus fruit continue, it will be necessary to
increase the analytical and inspection force of the Divi-
sion, with the necessary increase in funds to provide the
same and the required chemicals and apparatus.

INSPECTION.

The efficiency of the Pure Food, Fertilizer and Stock
Feed Laws, depend very largely on the careful, intelli-
gent, and constant inspection of the various warehouses,
factories, and wholesale and retail stores of the State.
The revenues of the Division also depend very largely
on efficient inspection.
The great area of the State (the largest East of the











Mississippi), the long distances from :Pensacola on the
West, to Jacksonville on the East, to Tampa, Miami and
Key West on the South, make it a physical impossibility
for two inspectors to properly cover the State.
I again call attention to the fact that economy and
efficiency makes it necessary to employ at least three in-
spectors, with headquarters in the three principal cities
of the State.
Active, efficient and frequent inspection of the various
factories, warehouses, railroad stations, local warehouses
and dealers' stocks of goods is imperative for the proper
administration of the fertilizer, feed stuff and pure food
and drug laws.
More depends upon the inspectors' vigilance to detect
frauds, correct evils and protect the revenues of the State
than upon any other branch of the service. This particu-
larly applies to the larger cities of the State, the distrib-
uting points of most of the goods sold throughout the
State, where are located the factories, warehouses and
depots from which the fertilizers, feeds, foods and drugs
are distributed to the retail merchant and the consumer,
who depend upon the manufacturer, jobber and whole-
saler for the quality, purity and legality of his goods, the
truthfulness of the brand or label.
I again call attention to the present crude, cumber-
some and comparatively expensive system of inspection.
Our inspectors are active and diligent, and under our
present system are doing all that can be expected of them
to enforce the law and protect the State and her citizens
from imposition and fraud.
The field is broad, however-the largest State east of
the Mississippi River, with the longest distances by rail
between her principal distributing points.
It is physically impossible for each inspector to effi-
ciently and economically cover the entire State.
I would suggest that not less than three competent in-
2-Bull.











spectors be employed, each to have authority to draw
samples of all goods subject to inspection-that is. fertili-
zers, foods and drugs, and feeds; having authority to seize
any material misbranded or that fails to bear the proper
inspection stamp. That one of these inspectors be located
at each large city-Pensacola, Jacksonville, and Tampa-
and have charge each of a Congressional District, subject
to orders of the State Chemist, and at his direction be
detailed to any part of the State if necessary.

LABORATORY ASSISTANT, AND JANITOR.

The work of the various laboratories, in the prIopera-
tion of samples-grinding fertilizer and feed stuffs. etc..
the care of and cleansing of apparatus, and similar service
as now performed by the several analysis, is expensive
and retards them greatly in their more important analyti-
cal work.
The employment of a competent laboratory assistant
and janitor, for the building occupied by the (li. *I i
Division and Geological Survey; whose time should be
exclusively devoted to this service, would be 1econ',imical
and add greatly to the efficiency and economy of the
Division.
Very respectfully,
R. E. ROSE, State Chemist.












SPECIAL SAMPLES.

Florida is the only State in the Union that provides for
the "special sample," drawn by the consumer or purchaser,
under proper rules and regulations fixed by law-to be
sent to the State Laboratory for analysis free of cost.
Any citizen in the State who has purchased fertilizerss or
feeds for his own use may draw a sample of the same,
according to law, and have the same analysed by the State
Chemist free of cost. And in case of adulteration or de-
ficiency he can, on establishing the fact, receive double
the cost of price demanded for the goods.

The law requires the ''special samples" to be drawn in
a manner to prevent the submission of spurious samples;
rules and regulations are published in every Bulletin for
drawing and transmitting "special samples."

This special sample has been a most 1po.ent factor in
enforcing tle law and discouraging the sale of adulter-
aled or misbranded goods.

Special samples of foods and drugs may also be sent to
the State Laboratory for analysis free ol cost, when rihe
sample is properly drawn according to law. The neces-
sary instructions and blanks required to properly draw
and transmit samples of "food and drugs" will be sent to
any citizen requesting the same.

"THE SPECIAL SAMPLE FURNISHES THE CON-
SUMER WITH THE SAME PROTECTION DEMAND-
El) BY THE MANUFACTURER, WHO BUYS 1 IS MA-
TERIALS ONLY UPON GUARANTEE AND PAYS
FOR THEM ACCORDING TO ANALYSIS, AND IS
PAID FOR BY THE CONSUMER OUT OF THE
FUNDS DERIVED FROM THE INSPECTION FEE OF
TWENTY-FIVE CENTS PER TON PAID ON FERTIL-
IZERS AND FEEDS SOLD IN THE STATE."












IEG(LATIONS GOVERNING THE TAKING ANI)
FORWAARDIING OF FE.iTILIZ/ER OR COMMER-
CIAL FEEDING STUFF SAMPLES TO THE '0(!O-
MISSIONER OF AGRICULTURE.



SECTION 15 OF THE LAWS.

Special s-tuinples )l' Fertilizers (ir Conmmercial I'-,liIng
Stuffs sent in by purchasers, under Section 9 of the iaws,
shall be drawn in the presence of two disinterested wit-
nesses, from one or more packages, thoroughly mixed, and
A FAIR SAMPLE OF THE SAME OF NOT LESS THAN EIGHT
OUNCES (ONE-II\ALF I'OUNI)) SHALL BE PLACED IN A TIN 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 secure
fair samples of sufficient size to make the necessary de-
terminations and to allow the preservation of a dupli-
cate sample in case of protest or appeal. This duplicate
sample will be preserved for two months from the dite
of certificate of analysis.
The Stale Chemist is not the proper officer t, receive
special samples from the purchaser. The propriety of The
method of drawing and sending the samples as fixed by
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 small quantity (less than ounce : fre-
quently 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 samples must not be less than one-
half pound, in a tin can or bottle, sealed and addressed to
the Commissioner of Agriculture. The sender's namc and
address must also be on the package, this rule applying
to special samples of fertilizers or commercial feeding
stuff.
A one-pound baking powder tin can, properly cleaned,
filled with a fairly drawn, well mixed sample taken from
several sacks, is a proper sample. It should be scaled and
addressed to the Commissioner of Agriculture at Talla-
hassec. The sender's name and address should also be
placed on the package. If more than one sample is sent.
the samples should be numbered so as to identify them.
All this should be done in the presence of the witnesses
and the package mailed or expressed by one of the
witnesses.
The tags off the sacks should be retained by the sender
to compare with the certificate of analysis when received,
and not sent to this office. The date of the drawing and
sending the sample, and names of the witnesses, should
also be retained by the sender; not sent to this office.

SOIL ANALYSIS.

We frequently have samples of soil sent in for analysis
and a request to advise as to the best methods of fertiliz-
ing.
Excepting in extreme cases, such as Heavy Clays, Pure
Sand and Muck Lands, there is but little information to
be derived from a soil analysis that would be of benefit to
farmers. So much depends on tilth, drainage, culture and
other physical conditions that an analysis made under
laboratory conditions is of little value.
A chemical analysis of a soil may indicate a very fer-
tile soil, rich in plant food, while the facts are the soils
are not productive.











This is instance by the rich Sawgrass muck land- and
river bottoms of the State, that are fertile chemically, but
not productive until properly drained: also, by the arid
lands of the west, rich in the elements of plant food. but
not productive until irrigated.
Other soils, with less plant food, but on account of
proper physical conditions, culture and tilth, are exceed-
ingly productive.
The average of Ihousands of analyses of Florida :,iils
made by the Agricultural Experiment Station and the
State Laboratory is as follows:

-Nitrogen (per cent.) .......................... 0.0413
Potash (per cent.) ............................. l.01091
Phosphoric Acid (per cent.) .................... 0.163.

This is a fair average of all of the Norfolk and Ports-
mouth soil series of the State, which comprise by far the
greater portion of the State.
In this connection we quote from the report of the
Indiana Agricultural Experiment Station, Purdue Uni-
versity, Lafayette, Ind., 1908, as follows:
"SOIL ANALYSIS OF LITTLE VALUE IN SHOWING FER-
TILIZER REQUIREMENTS.-The Chemical Department is
called upon to answer hundreds of letters of inquiry in
relation to agricultural chemical problems from people
all over the State. In this connection it might he well
to say that there is a widespread idea that the chemist
can analyze a sample of soil and, without further knowl-
edge of the conditions, write out a prescription of a fer-
tilizer which will fill the needs of that particular soil.
-"The Experiment Station does not analyze samples of
soil to determine the fertilizer requirements. There is
no chemical method known that will show reliably the
availability of tle plant food elements present in the soiil.
as this is a variable factor, influenced by the kind of crop,
the type of soil, the climate and biological conditions:
hence, we do not recommend this metho:l of testin_, -il."











The method recommended by the Indiana Station is
the field fertilizer test or plot system, in which long,
narrow strips of the field to be tested are measured off
side by side. The crop is planted uniformly over each.
Different fertilizers are applied to the different plots,
every tlh;rd or fourth one being left unfertilized. The
produce from these plots is harvested separately and
weighed. In this manner the farmer can tell what fer-
tilizer is best suited for his needs. As climatic conditions
may influence the yield with different fertilizers, it is best
to carry on such tests for more than one year before draw-
ing definite conclusions. There is positively no easier
or shorter method of testing the soil that we feel safe in
recommending.
Soil can be greatly improved by an intelligent rotation
of crops, the conservation of stable manure, and the use
of some kind of commercial fertilizer. Farmers need have
no fear that the proper application of commercial fer-
tilizer will injure the land.




WATER ANALYSIS.

We frequently analyze water for public use-city, town
and neighborhood supplies; springs and artesian wells in
which the public is interested; when some economic ques-
tion, boiler, laundry or other industrial use is to be
decided.
WE DO NOT ANALYZE WATER FOR INDIVIDUAL ACCOUNT
WHEREIN THE PUBLIC IS NOT INTERESTED. SUCH SAMPLES
IIOULD HE SENT TO A COMMERCIAL LABORATORY. THE STATE
LABORATORY DOES NOT COMPETE WITH COMMERCIAL LABORA-
TORIES.
Also we do not make bacteriological examinations nor
examinations for disease germs. Such examinations and











analyses are made by the State Board of Health at Jack-
sonville.
We do not make a sanitary analysis, nor a complete
quantitative determination (separating each mineral and
stating the quantity thereof).
Such an analysis would be costly in time and labor,
and of no real value to the inquirer. We determine the
total dissolved solids in the sample, and report ihem a-s
parts per 1,000,000, naming the principal ingredients in
the order of their predominance.
We find Calcium Carbonate (lime), Sodium Chiride
(salt), Magnesium Sulphate (epsom salts) Silica i sand .
and Iron, is the general order of their predominance,
though on the coast, where the total dissolved solids
amounts to 5,000 or more parts per 1,000.000. Solium
Chloride (salt) is the predominant substance.
From a knowledge of the chemical analysis ff a water,
unaccompanied by any further information, no concllusin
as to the potability and healthfulness of the water can
be deduced.
Therefore, we require the following information to be
given in regard to the source of the water
(1). The source of the water: spring, lake, river,
driven well, dug well, bored well, artesian well, ir ;!ow-
ing well; and also ihe depth of the water surface below
the top of the soil, and in cased wells the depth if the
casing.
(2). The locality of the source of the water: Trwn,
city or village; or the section, township and range.
(3). The proposed use of the water; city supply,
domestic use, laundry, boiler, irrigation or other in-
dustrial use.
(4). No sample of water will be analyzed unless the
name and address of the sender is on the package for
identification.
We require tico gallons of coach sample of water, in a












new jug, stopped with a new cork, and sent by prepaid
express. We will not accept any sample of water for
analysis not in a new jug. Vessels previously used for
other purposes are never properly cleaned for sending
samples of water for analysis. Corks, once used for other
substanves (molasses, vinegar, whiskey, kerosene, etc.),
are never properly cleaned. In sampling a well water, the
stagnant water in the pump must first be pumped off.
The jug must first be rinsed with the water to be sampled,
emptied, and then filed. A sample of spring, river or lake
water is best taken (after rinsing the jug), by allowing
the jug to fill after immersion some distance under the
surface near the center of the body of water.
NoTE.-We find the waters of the State-springs, wells,
driven wells and artesian wells-generally very pure and
wholesome, with but little mineral impurity and that
such as is not harmful. Except in cases of gross care-
lessness, in allowing surface water to contaminate the
well or spring, the waters of the State are pure and whole-
some. The deep wells of the State are noted for their
purity and healthfulness.

ANALYSIS OF FOODS AND DRUGS.

Samples of Foods and Drugs are drawn under special
regulations. Application should be made to the Com-
missioner of Agriculture or State Chemist for the neces-
sary blanks, instructions, etc., for drawing and trans-
mitting samples of foods and drugs, including drinks of
all kinds.

COPIES OF LAWS, RULES AND REGULATIONS,
AND STANDARDS.

Citizens of the State interested in fertilizers, foods and
drugs, and stock feed, can obtain, free of charge, the
respective Laws, including Rules and Regulations and











Standards, by applying to the Commissioner of Agricul-
ture or State Chemist. Application for the Quarterly
Bulletin of the State Department of Agriculture should
also be made to the Commissiloner of Agriculture or
State Chemist. The Bulletins of the Florida Agricultural
Experiment Station can be had by application to the
Director at Gainesville.



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 re-
quired 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 and stamp being evidence that the manu-
facturer or dealer has not complied with the law. With-
out 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.

INSTRUCTIONS TO SHERIFFS.

The attention of 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 Stuffs.

STATE VALUATIONS.

For Available and Insoluble Phosphoric Acid, Ammonia
and Potash, for the Season of 1913.

Available Phosphoric Acid ............... 5c a pound
Insoluble Phosphoric Acid ............... Ic a pound
Ammonia (or its equivalent in nitrogen) .17 c. a pound
Potash (as actual potash, K1O) .......... 5.,c a pound

If calculated by units-
Available Phosphoric Acid ............. $1.00 per unit
Insoluble Phosphoric Acid .............. 20c per unit
Ammonia (or ils equivalent in nitrogen) 3.50 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 analyzes 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 3.50- 11.97
Potash ................... 7.23 per cent.x 1.10- 7.95
Mixing and Baging .................. ......- 1.50

Commercial value at sea ports ......... ........ .27.94











Or a fertilizer analyzing as follows:
Available Phosphoric Acid..... 8 per cent.x$1.00-- 8.00
Ammonia .................... 2 per cent.x 3.50- 7.00
Potash ......................2 per cent.x 1.10- 2.20
Mixing and Bagging ......................... 1.50

Commercial value at sea ports ................ .1S.70

The State 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.
The valuations and market prices in preceding illustra-
tions are based on market prices for one-ton lots.

STATE VALUES.

It is not intended by the "State valuation" eo fix the
price or commercial value of a given brand. The "Siate
values" are the market prices for the various approved
chemicals and materials used in mixing or manufactur-
ing commercial fertilizers or commercial stock feed at
the date of issuing a Bulletin, or the opening of rhe
"sctson." Tihey 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 to 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 on
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 fertilizer, or feed, can be purchased for cash in ton lots
at Florida seaports.
These price lists are published in this report, with the
"State values" for 1913 deducted therefrom.

FACTORS FOR CONVERSION.

To convert-
Ammonia into nitrogen, multiply by.................................... 0.824
Ammonia into protein, multiply by................................... 5.15
Nitrogen into ammonia, multiply by............................... ... 1.214
Nitrate of soda into nitrogen, multiply by.................... 0.1647
Nitrogen into protein, multiply by................................ 6.25
Bone phosphate into phosphoric acid, multiply by 0.458
Phosphoric acid into bone phosphate, multiply by 2.184
Muriate of potash into actual potash, multiply by 0.632
Actual potash into muriate of potash, multiply by 1.583
Sulphate of potash into actual potash, multiply by 0.41
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 1.466
Chlorine, in "kainit," multiply potash (K20) by..... 2.33
For instance, you buy 95 per cent. of nitrate of soda
and want to know how much nitrogen is in it, multiply 95
per cent. by 0.1647, you will get 15.65 per cent. nitrogen;
you want to know how much ammonia this nitrogen is
equivalent to, then multiply 15.65 per cent. by 1.214 and
you get 18.99 per cent., the equivalent in ammonia.
Or, to convert 90 per cent. carbonate of potash into
actual potash (KO), multiply 90 by 0.681, equals 61.29
per cent, actual potash (K,0).

FORMFULAS,

There are frequent inquiries for formulas for various
crops, and there are hundreds of such formulas published
and, while there are hundreds of "brands," the variations
in these grades are surprisingly little. Dozens of -brands
put up by the same manufacturer are identical goods, the
only difference being in Ihe name printed on the tag or
sack. A good general formula for field or garden might
be called a "vegetable formula," and would have the 1'fl-
lowing: Ammonia, 3V, ; available phosphoric acid.
6*%; and potash, 7' The following formulas will
furnish the necessary plant food in about the above pro-
portion. I have purposely avoided the use of any fraction
of 100 pounds in these formulas to simplify them. Values
are taken from price lists furnished by the trade, January
1, 1912.
For cotton, corn, sweet potatoes and vegetables: Am-
monia, 31%; available phosphoric acid, 61r : potash,
7 %.

COMMERCIAL STATE VALUES OF FEED STUFFS
FOR 1913.

For the season of 1913 the following "State values" are
fixed as a guide to purchasers.
These values are based on the current prices of corn,
which has been chosen as a standard in fixing the com-
mercial values; the price of corn, to a large extent, gov-
erning the price of other feeds, pork, beef, etc.:

COMMERCIAL VALUES OF FEED STUFFS FOR 1913.

Protein, 3.4c. per pound ................. 6Sc. per unit
Starch and Sugar, 1.lc. per pound ........22c. per unit
Fats, 2.5c. per pound .................. 50c. per unit

A unit being 20 pounds (1%) of a ton.
Indian corn being the standard 'ir.t'_..iii per ton.
To find the commercial State value, multiply the per-
centages by the price per unit.

EXAMPLE tO. 1.

CORN AND OATS, EQUAL PARTS-
Protein ......................... 11.15 x 68c. 8 7.58
Starch and Sugar ..................... 64.65 x 22c, 814.22

SPECIAL FOOD ANALYSIS, 1912.-(Continued.)
ORANGES SENT IN BY CITIZENS.
In the last year 299 special samples of oranges and grapefruit have been analyzed. Of these 299 samples,
209 of them were sent by 17 citizens of Florida for the purpose of a study of the ripening of oranges. These 209
analyses with later ones will be published in a special bulletin later. All samples were prepared for analysis
by taking twelve average oranges, they are peeled cut across the plugs and then the juice extracted in an ordi-
nary wooden lemon squeezer. The percentage of juice was then determine d and the further analysis made on the
juice. The percentage of "Total Sugar as Invert Sugar," "Total Acid as Citric Acid," and the "Ratio of the
Total Acid to the Total Sugar" were then determined. The above method of analysis is the method recommended
by the Commission appointed by the Commissioner of Agrculture to prepare a standard for mature citrus fruit
under The Immature Citrus Fruit Law and adopted by the Citrus Growers' Convention held at Gainesville on
August 15, 1912.
