Expert chemists under the di
rection of the agricultural depart
ment at Washington have been en
gaged in ascoftaing how much al
cohol can be obtained from cobs
while green, whore the corn had
been cut for canning. The exper
iment resulted in obtaining eleven
gallons of alcohol from a ton of
green corn cobs. The green stalks
from which the canning corn was
freshly pulled produced six gal
lons of alcohol. This analysis of
corn cobs and green cornstalks
show how the refuse on the farm
or at canning factories can be con
verted into denatured alcohol, to
be used for lighting country
homes, cooking and for driving
pumps and machinery on the
farm. This is certainly saving the
scraps and wastes.
