Every year in our wasteful Amm
an prodigality are throwing
. v.l. o.. w,r
Uea of material
Timwi A war. , .
which tho geniai
of aonie future discoTerer will find
to bo rich in the possibilities of un
appropriated wealth. But in partial
offset against thia national tendency
toward wastefulness there are cer
tain economic agencies at work in the
various scientific laboratories of the
country which may yet produce the
happy result of converting trash
piles into gold mines. Experiments
in this direction have been wonder
fully stimulated, Bays the Atlanta
Constitution, since it was discovered
several years ago that cotton seed
could be made the basis of an im
portant industry, producing not only
what ia now commercially known as
cotton seed oil, but also many use
ful by-products, and greatly in
creasing our material wealth by put
ting value into immense quantities of
cotton seed . hitherto considered
worthless except for purposes of fer
tilization, as only the smallest quan
tity was used each year for replant
ing. We have been very much inter
ested in some figures recently com
piled by Daniel C. Koper for the
L'nited States bureau of statistics,
showing that the value of the output
now derived from cotton seed now
aggregates annually more than $40,
000,000. As many as 257 establish
ments in lils country are now en
gaged In crushing cotton seed. Ac
cording to the figures for 1900, the
manufacturers paid $28,000,000 for the
cotton seed used during the year, but
from this outlay of raw material
there were produced 93,000,000 gal
lons of oil valued at $21,000,000, 884,
000 tons of cake and meal valued at
$1G,000,000, 1,000,000 tons of hulls,
valued at $3,000,000, and 87,000,000
tons of linters valued nt $1,800,000.
Nearly half of this immense output
was exported to foreign countries.
Mr. Koper gives some additional in
formation showing the character of
the various products derived from
the cotton seed and also tlie uses to
which they are put. The meal which
is left after the oil is extracted from
the seed Is used both for fertilizing
and for cattle feeding. The crude
oil which results from the first pro
cess is called summer oil and this
product on being subjected to subse
quent processes of refining in tarn
produces stcrin, which is used in
making butter, salad oils and can
dles; summer whke oil, which is used
in making lard and cottolene, win
ter yello "and miners' oil, while
thcr product which remains is used
as soap stock. If we can only con
vert some few of our other waste
materials into products of commer
cial value we will have money to
spare in this section; but consider
ing the extent and variety of our
natural resources, which we are now
engaged in developing, we can afford
to wait patiently.

The case recently reported in the
pnblic prints of a serious attack of
blood poisoning, the Bource of which
was traced to verdigris found on a
metal door knob, is one more warning
for eternal vigilance in the way of
cleanliness in every part of the house.
The particular door knob in the in
stance referred to was in a public
building, and was probably nobody's
care. The Illness resulting from it is
an alarming warning to housekeepers
to watch for similar dangerous pos
sibilities in their own domain. It also
emphusizes the fact that a cut or abra
sion of any kind on the skin means
that the greatest care should be ex
ercised as to what comes in contact
with it, until the place is healed.
