LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL.
Ut. S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE,
DIVISION OF CHEMISTRY,
Washington, D. C., May 19, 1901.
SIR: I submit herewith, for your inspection and approval, the manuscript
of Farmers' Bulletin No. 135, prepared by your authority, under
my direction, by Mr. A. A. Denton, of Medicine Lodge, Kans. It is
designed to take the place of Farmers' Bulletin No. 90, issued in 1899,
considerable new and valuable information having since been received.
Mr. Denton has devoted many years to the experimental study of
the simplest and most effective methods of clarifying sorghum juices
and sirups in order to secure a high-grade product. The later results
of his experiments are described in the present bulletin.
The annual production of sorghum sirup in the United States is
about 25,000,000 gallons, of a value of at least $10,000,000. If a better
clarification of the raw materials could be secured, it is evident that
the demand for this wholesome product would be greatly increased
and the production correspondingly enlarged. Mr. Denton's bulletin
is a practical contribution to this desired end.
H. W. WILEY,
Chief of Division of Chemistry.
Hon. JAMES WILSON,
Secretary of Agriculture.
