Not illustrated. 1886-01-01 edition. Excerpt: ...was operated for twenty-six days upon mill bagapse from unstripped cane; this was done partly to avoid waste of sugar, and partly to test the apparatus and train the workmen. The juice was skillfully handled and clarified, but, owing to the color and taste due to leaves, the two hundred and twenty-nine barrels of heavy syrup secured are not worth more than one half as much as an equal quantity of the standard syrup made at this house from mill j uice. Conclusion. The comparison of diffusion products from stripped and unstripped cane indicates that the financial success of the sorghum sugar industry now depends largely upon the removal of leaves and leaf sheaths. 1. Because their presence in the diffusers increases the amount of water to be evaporated by thirty-three per cent. 2. Because tbey impart to diffusion juices a very dark color and intensely bitter taste, the effect of which is to reduce the market value of syrups at least one-half. IV. When the above conclusions, drawn under the heading II. and III., are studied in connection with the approximately correct reports of expenses and sales, under present working processes, the following general statements seem warrantable: 1. If carefully stripped cane only is used at Rio Grande, the substitution of diffusion for milling will be followed by financial success. 2. If unstripped cane is diffused, financial success will still be problematic: 1. Because of evaporation expenses; 2. Because of a serious depreciation in the market value of syrups, due to their inferior taste and color. GEO. H. COOK, Director. New Brunswick, N. J., December 21st, 1885. APPENDIX.
