In addition to this regulatory work
connected with tho enforcement of
various laws, scientists ot tho Pit
reau have been carrying on important
Investigations. Tho report makes
particular mention of tho study ot
the subject of ponto ilrjlng. Dried
potatoes may be kepi indefinitely for
stock feed nnd aro of course much
less bulky and, therefore, less ex
pci8lvo to transport than ordinary
potatoes. This Investigation will
ultimately bo extended to other uses
for potato products, such as tho man
ufacture ot starch and glucoso, in
order to encourage tho production ot
potatoes as a regular part In crop
rotation in sections where this could
be done with benefit.
Two now ways havo also been dis
covered of utilizing surplus and cull
apples. Ono Is the manufacture, ot
applo sirup by clarifying nnd boiling
down applo juice. Tho sirup obtained
promises to bo a welcome addition
to our diet as well at affording a
flavor an tho original applo Julco from
which It was made, and IIh condensed
form makes It much cheaper to ship.
