Demrturizing' in no way affects thu
solvent properties of alcohol.
Alcohol is obtained by the fermenta
tion of some substance such as starch,
sugar, grain or potatoes. The strong
est alcohol used is about ninety-live
per cent pure, and the price varies
from S2.30 to SL'.r.O per gallon, show
ing that tlie greater part of the cost
is due to thu SL'.'-'O tax per gallon
levied by the government. Wood al
cohol is used quite extensively In the
manufacture of paint, varnish and
shellacs, but is inferior to wood alco
hol and is detrimental to the health of
those who work with it.
The opinion has bren expressad by
an authority that thu territory along
thu lines of thu Hurliugtoii Route is
tine of the greatest natural llelds in
the L'nited States for tltu manufacture
of alcohol. First of all there is the
abundance of grain and potatoes from
which alcohol can be made. Then
there is the ample supply of water
and coal and the transportation facill
lies. Thu very fact that alcohol can
be made from grain and potatoes in
sures better market for those already
staple crops in Hurlington territory.
Another advantage in this connection
is that early frost, which occasionally
damages the corn crop, does not les
sen its value for distilling purposes.
, It is also true that potatoes of an in
ferior grade or wholly undesirable for
i household consumption can be utilized
in making alcohol.
At the Nebraska Experiment Farm
1 near Lincoln, .100 bushels of potatoes
per acre have been raised. A bushel
of potatoes will make a gallon of
alcohol, so that it is evident potatoes
would pay enormous dividends. How
J ever, it is the opinion of experts that
I our ilrst industrial alcohol will be
made from grain. It is the farmer
. who Is in position to prollt from the
I alcohol industry, for alcohol as a fuel
; is going to do wonders for him. It is
(Confidently expected denaturized al
cohol will be largely used for heating,
lighting and fuel. While it has only
about half the heating power of kero
sene or gasoline, it is far superior in
other respects. For instance, it is
much safer and can be easily control
led. While denaturized alcohol may
not soon displace gasoline or kerosene
this product is absolutely unlimited,
whereas gasoline, for instance, rep
resents only about two per cent of all
the petroleum refined, and the de
mauds now made on it can only force
up the price. The farmer who is to
produce corn and potatoes for the
manufacture of alcohol is, however,
to share even more intimately in the
profits, for he can utilize it in his
home and on his farm. Alcohol is
now used in small portable lamps
which give all the effects of a mantel
burner heated by gas. As a motive
power, it will be of even greater vulue
for the farmer can use it to make his
butter, grind his feed, pump his water
or turn it to any other use on the
Statistics of the ways and means
committee of the House of Represen
tatives show many places where al
cohol can be produced at a cost of
twenty to twent-flve cents per gallon.
Moreover, the refuse matter can be
used as a cattle feed. When this cost
is compared with the 82.iJO tax per
gallon, the enormous saving in pro
duction is at once seen. The natural
reduction which comes with all new
enterprises, improvements in ma
chinery and other conditions will
eventually reduce this cost, so that
alcohol is certain to become one of
the cheapest fuels ever produced.

Denaturized Alcohol Promises to Itenc
fit The Western Farmer.
The passage of the free alcohol bill
during the last session of congress
will doubtless give, as intended, great
impetus to the manufacture of alcohol,
which will now be used quite freely
in the arts and as fuel. Heretofore,
the tax of 82.120 per gallon, levied by
the government, quite effectually pre
vented the general use of alcohol. It
is reasonable to expect that denatur
ized alcohol will be extensively used
in manufacturing dye stuffs and chem
icals, which are now almost entirely
imported from Europe. The term "de
naturized" means the addition of some
foreign inbstance which renders the
alcohol unfit for making whiskey or
beverages. Frequently the term im
plies the use of wood alcohol, which,
as is well known, is very poisonous.
