NOTICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION.
CONCERNING AMENDMENT 7 TO B. A. 1. ORDER 211, EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 15. 1919.
The purpose of this amendment is to permit the addition of lard stearin tip lard
without requiring the presence of the added stearin to be shown on thlie label of the
finished product. It is believed that in practice lard stearin will be added only to
soft lards which are deficient in stearin. This is a natural conclusion since the market
price of lard stearin is higher than that of lard with the possible exception of the
highest grade of lard.
A considerable number of samples of soft lards have been examined in the labor-
atories. These examinations show that such lards consist of the same glycerids as
ordinary firm lards, but differ in the prpinrtion of the different glycerids. The soft
lards contain a higher proportii'n of liquid glycerids and a lesser proportion of the
solid glycerids than do firm lards. The composition of soft lard is similar to that of
lard oil, except that it contains a small prop-,rtion of solid glycerids, while in lard
oil these are almost if not entirely removed. The laboratory investigations of lard
stearin shows that this product consists ,f the same glycerids as lard, but differs from
it in containing a higher proportion of the solid glycerids and a lower proportion of
those that, are liquid. In mixing lard stearin with soft lard there is produced a mix-
ture the composition of which is more nearly identical with that of the average normal
lard than that of the original soft lard. Such a mixture could not be distinguished
from normal lard and has practically the same composition as normal lard, and it has
the same culinary qualities and nutritive value. It appears, therefore, that the
addition of lard stearin can be permitted without injury or fraud upon the consumers,
and that it is unnecessary for the label to show the presence of added stearin.
T'hlie addition of lard stearin to lard will permit a better utilization of the fat of
h, s which have been largely fed on peanuts or other feeds which produce the so-
called snft pork. and the market price of lard stearin will be the limiting factor in
the amount added to lard.

TELEGRAPH OR TELEPHONE TOLLS IN CONNECTION WITH SLEEPING
CAR, PARLOR-CAR, OR STEAMSHIP RESERVATIONS.

In order that confusion and annoyance may be avoided, the attention of all em-
ploeeer of this department who may be called upon to perform official travel should
be invited to the following extract from a recent circular of the United States Railroad
Administration relative to the use of local wires in making sleeping-car, parlor-car,
or steamer reservations.
Railroad agents or representatives will not pay for telegraph ortelephone messages covering sleeping,
parlor-car, or .eamer 'i3ervations: passengers desiring such reservations made for them by radroad
representatives will be required to pay the established charges for the necessary telegraph ortelephone
service in both directions, except thattelegraph and telephone wires of railroads under Government con-
trol may be used locally or jointly without charge to passengers in procuring sleeping-car or parlor and
steamer accommodations under the following conditions:
(a) The accommodations will be secured only in connection with continuous trip, a reasonable time,
not to exceed 12 hours, being allowed for train connection at points where transfers to sleepers are made.
(b) A sleeping or parlor car or steamer berth ticket, or order therefor, covering the accommodations
must be purchased at any time they are secured.
(c) Before delivery of the sleeping or parlor-car or steamer berth ticket the agent to whom application
is made for the accommodation shall require presentation or purchase of ticket good from his station to
or beyond destination to which reservation is made.
For example, in performing through official travel from Washington, D. C., via
Chicago, Ill., to St. Paul, Minn., an employee desiring to secure a Pullmanreserva-
tion beyond Chicago without personal expense must present to the Washington rail-
road representative transportation requests covering the entire coach fare and Pullman
fare desired.

ORDER 211, EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 15. 1919.The purpose of this amendment is to permit the addition of lard stearin to lardwithout requiring the presence of the added stearin to be shown on the label of thefinished product. It is believed that in practice lard stearin will be added only tosoft lards which are deficient in stearin. This is a natural conclusion since the marketprice of lard stearin is higher than that of lard with the possible exception of thehighest grade of lard.A considerable number of samples of soft lards have been examined in the labor-atories. These examinations show that such lards consist of the same glycerids asordinary firm lards, but differ in the proportion of the different glycerids. The softlards contain a higher proportion of liquid glvcerids and a lesser proportion of thesolid glycerids than do firm lards. The composition of soft lard is similar to that oflard oil, except that it contains a small proportion of solid glycerids, while in lardoil these are almost if not entirely removed. The laboratory investigations of lardstearin shows that this product consists of the same glycerids as lard, but differs fromit in containing a higher proportion of the solid glycerids and a lower proportion ofthose that are liqiuid. In mixing lard stearin with soft lard there is produced a mix-ture the composition of which is more nearly identical with that of the average normallard than that of the original soft lard. Such a mixture could not be distinguishedfrom normal lard and has practically the same composition as normal lard, and it hasthe same culinary qualities and nutritive value. It appears, therefore, that theaddition of lard stearin can he permitted without injury or fraud upon the consumers,and that it is unnecessary for the label to show the presence of added stearin.The addition of lard stearin to lard will permit a better utilization of the fat ofhogs which have been largely fed on peanuts or other feeds which produce the so-called sft porlk. and the market price of lard stearin will be the limiting factor inthe amount added to lard.
