Not illustrated. 1909 edition. Excerpt: ...There was no expense for the barn and office expenses for 1900; I assume it was included in the miscellaneous. The Chairman. Any charge for insurance and taxes? Mr. Whitcomb. Insurance and taxes, 46 cents, as compared with 31 cents, a total of $31.90. The Chaibman. Now, did you use any more sulphite per ton in 1907 than you did in 1901! Mr. Whitcomb. 1901, we used 31 per cent; 1907, 27.8 per cent. The Chairman.
