ghum and tells how to plant, cultivate, and
harvest the crop. It gives the methods for manufac-
turing sorghum sirup, often incorrectly termed sor-
ghum " molasses," with illustrations of the apparatus
used. The approximate yields of cane, of sirup, and
of sorghum seed are given. Economic considera-
tions as to the location and arrangement of a sor-
ghum-sirup plant, fuel used, the by-products and
