On June 7. congress pas'ed a

of I2.1)" per ''gallon n grain alcohol
which had been properly 'denatured
r rendered unfit' for drinking- pur
poses by the addition' of certain ma
SerlaV such 8 wood alcohol, benzine
or pyridine, it was hoped that by the
removal of thl tax alciihof could be
obtained cheaply 'enough to compete
. with petroleum for light an.l fuel. The
demand for mich alcohol can be read
ily seen when 'we note that approxi
mately 3,000,000 gallons of gasoline
'are consumed daily In the country and
tha the Increased demand for It. due
to the development of the modern ex
plosion motor, has doubled Its price
In the last 10 years. Indiana and Ohio
oils contain only about 5 per cent of
gasoline and the per cent of the lighter
distillate in California and Texas crude
oil I very low. The supply of gaso
line therefor seems to be limited but
the demand Increasing. Alcohol, It
tie been demonstrated, can meet thl
rfomonH . Furthermore, the ''annual
consumption of kerosene In the Vnlt

.gallons, three-fourths of which are
probably used by the farmer. Since
one gallon of alcohol I equivalent to
two gallon of kerosene for lighting
purposes, $ 'S million gallon of alco

country each year. This would re-

by either natural or artlficinl means,
materials which contain notnblu quan
tities of either Hturch or Hiigar may be
tillltzed for making alcohol. The
more Important sources of alcohol are
the cereals, potatoes, moluses and
fruits. In France ajcohol Is chiefly
made fvom the augur beet, In (l. rmuny
from the potato and In America from
corn. A bushel of corn will yield ap
proximately 2 gallons of 93 per cent
alcohol; a bushel of potatoes three
fourths of a gallon and u fouxhel of ap
ple one-third of a gnllon. The yield
depends directly upon the augur and
tarch content of the material used
arid. in general sugar will yield one
half Its weight of alcohol.
In the large distilleries It cost
l.,.ni 17 cents to manufacture and
place on the market-one gallon of al
cohol and the cost of the raw material
used brings this ordinarily to approx
imately 30 cents. Allowing for the
Ttr-cvvary profit, alcohol will reach the
consumer at about 40c per gallon. But
alcohol at 40 cents can compete with
kerosene at 2" cents for lighting pur
poses and In competition kerosene can
never demand more than one-half the
market price of alcohol.
