WASHINGTON: GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE. 1923.

Transcriber's note: Minor typos have been corrected, tables have been modified where necessary to fit within the constraints of a text file, and footnotes have been moved to the ends of the sections. Inconsistencies in spelling (e.g., D'Arboval/D'Arborval) and hyphenation (e.g., postmortem/post mortem) have been resolved in all cases where it was possible to divine the author's intent with a reasonable degree of certainty. The occasional error which could not be resolved was marked [sic]. Italicized letters and words are enclosed by underscores . Subscripts are represented by an underscore and curly braces: {2} (for example, SiO {2}). Ligatures which cannot be reproduced in the Latin 1 character set are enclosed in [brackets] (for example, C[oe]nurus).

[Extract from "An act making appropriations for the Department of Agriculture for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1924, and for other purposes," approved February 26, 1923. Public No. 446.]
