FOR PROPERLY LABELED
DRUGS ftNDjmEB FOOD
Activities of the Bureau of Chemistry
Against Fraudulent Transactions in
Medicines and Mineral Waters Re
ceiving Commendation of Public
Washington, D. C., Dec. 18. —The
false mid fraudulent labeling of medi-
I cines and mineral waters has recently
1 received a great deHl of attention from
| the Bureau of Chemistry, according to
: the bureau's report for the year end
| iug June 30, 1914. A large number
of instances have been found in which
' impossible claims for the preparations
in question have been made and in
these cases stops have been taken to
compel the owners to alter the labels.
This is true of a large number of vet
erinary medicines and in particular of
(so called) cures for hog cholera. As
for mineral waters, the position long
' held by the bureau, that so-called
lithia water must contain enough
lithia to produce an appreciable the
rapeutic. effect, has now been sustain
ed by the Supreme Court of the Dis
trict of Columbia, and in consequence
action has been taken to enforce this,
ruling. Measures are being taken to
prevent the exploitation of so-called
radio-active waters in which the
amount of radium is negligible. Fur
thermore mineral waters to which has
been added carbonic acid g'as or min
eral salt, are not any more, sold as
'•natural," but arc properly labeled.
In connection with the bureau's
work of food inspection, two important
sanitary surveys have been made of
oyster growing localities, one in Chesa
peake bay, and one in J&macia bay, X.
V. Wherever these surveys resulted
in the discovery of polluted areas the
oystermen moved their stock to clean
water and maintained it there for a
sufficient time, until all danger to the
consumer was done away with.
Altogether there were nearly 12,-
000 samples of food and beverages col
lected and analyzed. The co-operation
of other branches of the government
has been secured for the prosecution
of cases not fullV covered by tlie food
and drugs act. For example, in one
case connected with illegal traffic in
bad eggs, a number of persons wore
indicted for conspiracy. In another
case a manufacturer of beverages re
ceived a long prison sentence for put
■ ting wood alcohol in his products.
In addition to this regulatory work
connected with the enforcement of
various laws, scientists of the bureau
have been carrying on important in
vestigations. The report makes parti
cular mention of the study of the sub
ject of potato drying. Dried potatoes
I may be kept indefinitely for stock
tceil and are of course much less bulky
and, therefore, less expensive to trans
port than ordinary |>otatoes. This in
| vestigation will ultimately be extend
ed to other uses for potato products,
such as the manufacture of starch and
glucose, in order to encourage the pro
duction ot potatoes as a regular part
in crop rotation in sections where this
could be done with benefit.
Iwo new ways have also been dis
covered of utilizing surplus and cull
apples. One is the manufacture of ap
ple sirup by clarifying and boiling
down apple juice. The sirup obtained
promises to be a welcome addition to
our diet as well as affording a new
market for the apple grower. The
other method of disposing of the sur
, l'' us ol f apples is the manufacture of
concentrated cider. Hitherto the mar
ket for cider has been limited, due to
the fact that it can only be kept a
short time and that its bulk makes its
transportation too expensive when long
) distances are to be covered. The con
centrated cider ferments very slowlv
when kept at a low temperature. When'
diluted with water it lias prmticallv
the same flavor as the original ai.pl'e
juice from which it was ma le, and' its
condensed form makes it much chean
er to ship. ''
Considerable attention has also been
- devoted to the fis'h industry which up
, to the present time has been a subject
of much less scientific study than meat
packing. With tne growing scarmtv of
meat, however, ii seems obvious that
Hsh will come to play a more import
ant part in the nation's fool supplv
and Mich uesfions as the best means ot
storage, transportation, and the pre
vention of waste deserve careful in
, v ': stl Kation. An instance of the value
ot this work is afforded bv the Alaiue
sardipe industry. As a result of «ov
e mine lit investigation a marked im
provement has taken place in the
qua.ity of American sardines put up
by establishments along tlie coa«; of
