EXHAUSTIVE OFFICIAL REPORT snows CFVEI1f ONLY STTii- ULATLG INGREDIENT. Amt Glass or Bottle Lees TIuLa Average Cup of Tea or Coffee. 9 Trace of Cocatae or Other leterfo Subtaaee Montgomery June 22 Special Among the many experiments and anal- yes which have engaged the recent attention or Dr. B. Ross. State Chem. let. and his corps of efficient associates in the chemical department of the Alabama Polytechnic Institute a Auburn the exhaustive examination of samples of Cola taken from' syrup purchased in the open market together with the official report made regarding known beverage is certain to of genuine widespread interest throughout this state. This official report of Dr. Ross together with the thorough and exhaustive analysis made by Prof. Emerson R. Miller. who holds the chair of pharmaceutical chemistry at the University of Alabama. absolutely answers every question or controversy regarding this drink and makes possible the thorough understanding of the entire matter while at the same time it presents the ingredients of this beverage from the careful viewpoint of an eminent authority whose only and every care is the welfare of the people- of the state of Alabama. whom he has served so ably and so well. As a result of this examination. in the future every Alabamian who cares to drink Coca Cola will have the satisfaction or knowing exactly what he Is drinking. Alabama Foremost In Reform. In the wave of reform which has swept over this country regarding the proper labeling of drugs and the careful selection between pure and deleteri- ous or adulterated foods Alabama has been in the very tore of the southern states. For this reason the experi- ments which have been made by Dr. Ross the State Chemist and his collaborators are not only of great in terest but of tremendous Importance to the welfare of the commonwealth and pertinent to the health of its every citizen. Perhaps because of the many who drink Coca Cola the reports which have Just been made are even more In teresting than some of those regard- Ing the analysis of some of the more common necessities In every household lot to the average American citizen It is the luxuries rather than the necessities of life. with which he Is chiefly concerned when demanding the absolute purity which has made this present epoch a veritable modern reformation. Regarding Coca Cola and its ingredients the reports of the State Chemist and the professor of pharmaceutical chemistry do not deal In glittering generalities On the other heist they confine themselves absolutely to the findings resulting from the exhaustive analysis which it was admitted was several weeks In the making and from several samples purchased in the open market that the question of whether or not Coca Cola Is harmless might be absolutely and definitely settled. Happily for those Alabamians who have for ears been among the patrons of this drink the analysts proves that while the chief and the only stimulating ingredient in Coca Cola is caffeine. the amount used in the making of a glass or bottle of the beverage is about th same in quantity as the amount of caffeine contained In a cup of tea. or coffee of average strength. Less Caffeine Than In Tea or Coffee. In the report made by Professor Miller states that the amount ox cat- feine was from I 25 to I 29 grains to the fluid ounce of slrup. As la well known or may be easily demonstrated by watching any soda fountain clerk. the amount of syrup used in the malt- lug of a glass of Coca Cola is not more than an ounce and generally less The amount used In bottling the beverage also about one ounce making the average amount of caffeine in a. glass bottle of this well known drink about one grain. As tjbe jeports or the most eminent and recognized chemists' In the counttry show that the average amount of caffeine In an ordinary cup of tea or coffee runs from one and three quarters grains of caffeine to over two grains the relative injury resulting from the drinking of tea. or cot- fee compared with that of Olla must be obvious to the most casual and disinterested person. As to the presence of cocaine or any other deleterious substance. Professor Miller after this most careful and exhaustive analysis states that he was unable to find any cocaine or other in furious substance. No Trace of Cocaine or Harmful Drugs. In tact after stating his inability to find any deleterious substance Prufes- sor Miller says that he found the only stimulating Ingredient was caffeine. The amount of caffeine found in Coca- Cols according to the analysis or the worlds best chemist is about the. same amount as la found in a cup of tea or coffee of average strength. Having dtaoosed or any question of cocaine or other injurious ingredient and having determined caffeine to be the only stimulating element. Profes- sor Miller signs it name to the analysis and at the- same time ends any doubt or uncertainty regarding thlll widely known beverage and Its effects upon those who drink It. As for Dr. Ross the state Chemist he endorses and concurs in the report of Professor Miller. making it an official document as well as lending the weight and Influence of his own name and reputation that the question might be settled definitely for all those woo are interested concerning this drink. It is stated that Dr. Ko the State Chemist and his associates are now engaged in making exhaustive analyses of many of the foods. beverages and other materials now sold' throughout this State and that the reports of analyses will make possible the thorough understanding as to the injurious or harmless Ingredients of these materials on the pant of sit Alabama purchasers For this and many other reasons there experiments which may perhaps be postponed during the summer months are universally conceded to of the greatest Importance as well as of vital interest to. every citizen In this State. JOURNALS OP THE SOFT DRINK TRADE. AUaata la the Home of the South's Two Ora au of the Wholesale smd Retail Branches at the Industry. The carbonated bottlers of the south something like 3000 in number. practically to a man regularly receive the Southern Carbonator and Bottler the highly successful journal of the. trade that Mr. Donald- A. Loyless has built up In Atlanta. Two years and a hall ago this monthly publication.

C. cca pages and they are just twice the size of an ordinary magazine page. printed on heavy super-calendared book paper with an abundance of tone Illustration and colored Ink on the advertising pages. The advertising support of The Southern Carbonator and Bottler Is most generous due. of course to the certain returns from an ox- elusive journall ilc representative of the trade that i teaches In the mot concrete kind of a way the carbonated bottling plants of the entire south and southwest-in in all eighteen states And territories.

It Is carefully edited and widely read and quoted in the trade. Mr. Loyless is at present interesting himself in the establishment of a monthly publication. to represent the retail carbonated or soda fountain trade in the south. The initial number of this trade- journal known as The Soda. Dispenser has already made Its appearance from Atlanta. The new paper Is well patronized. and shows every promise of duplicating the success of. its wholesale. contemporary. The Southern. Carbonator and Bottler. Both. of those excellent monthly papers Issue weekly bulletins of their respective trades In their circulation territory- chronicling promptly. business changes. wants and a. variety of trade Information This is to certify that pursuant to your request I nave bought in the open market from the Murray Drug Ga. an original package of five gallons of Cola syrup bearing the label of The Cola Co. Atlanta Ga. and have subjected the same to careful analysis. The object of this investigation being to establish the presence or absence of cocaine and possibly of other injurious alkaloids I operated on quantities of three to five tunes the amount contained in a bottle of the carbonated e. The extractions of the syrup were repeated until the aklaloids were entirely. removed and' different tmmissible soh ents ere used on different portions. The crystalline substance thus obtained was further separated by fractional extractions after which it was concentrated and tested. Since this concentrated product which would contain all of the cocaine failed to respond to the tests for cocaine it is clear that the alkaloid is absent or if present at all then in quantities too minute to allow of detection. The active constltutent of Cola Syrup proved to be caffeine and in quantities seemingly less than in a cup of good coffee or tea. There was no evidence of the presence of other alkaloids. Signed W.

This company was formed for the purpose of pushing the popular Plkmeup beverage made from the Plkmeup syrup.

Moffatt. who la a well-known business man of Chester. 8 C. ABOUT LABELS. The Silent Salesmen Sort.
