of the plant Ihe India Gambier is the highest priced tanning agent on the market and is exported in tremendous quantities to all parts of the world the tanners of this country using a large percentage of this India product It Is generally ' known among tanners -throughout this country that a company was formed some years ago to manufacture palmetto tanning extract In fact during the short period of time that this extract was being made at Titusville Fla and later transferred here to Miami the writer like many ot our tanners throughout this country had an opportunity of testing out the Florida extract and 4n all cases where it was substituted for the India Gambler the tanners learned it made leather that was superior to that made - by the imported product The only - fault that tha tanners ex-pressed against the extract waa its lacking in tanic-acid strength It registering only 17- per -ceut-taanin where Gambler registers 25 per cent tannin in liquid extract form AS the tanners 'would not consider Its use unless the price was reduced to makeup Jor this weakness in 'strength and - the --manufacturers failing to see how 'they could meet the price or increase the strength of their extract-concluded Lo go out -of business It -was during this time that the writer was conducting hfs - own tannery srPeabodyMass that hfewas specializing in the ‘manufacture of a certain leather 'which called for large quantities of the imported Gambier Borne years later the writer Invented a tanning process which had as its basis Gambler and the process sold readily to some of the largest tanning companies in this country and Canada It was during ’this period that while the writer was traveling from tannery to tannery instructing this new process he devised the idea of coming to Florida in search of 'substitutes - for all the tanning agents that his tanning formula called for feeling assured from actual experience that Gambier could be substituted by the palmettoes of Florida As this secret process met such favor and become widely known as the Lloyd process 'the writer figured If his process could be made from Florida tanning materials and sold on the market in the concentrated form (extract) it undoubtedly would meet the same favor as it did when he personally went to the tanneries and instructed the tanner how to mix the various ingredients 1‘ ON- reaching Florida several years ago he started In on his research mission to find substltntes of various tanning agents -which -would take the place of those that his formula called for -This -as -you -can Imagine 'could not-be accomplished overnight-It requiring something over a year before he discovered his first substitute However -his efforts were rewarded for he succeeded in what heset ' out' to accomplish inasmuch that he has duplicated each and every one of the tanning agents 'that made up his tanning formula In addition to making a palmetto extract which possesses an added vegetable agent containing similar properties as the palmetto but very much stronger In tanic-acid which has overcome the difficulty that the original promoters of this extract failed to accomplish — this extract registering on having analysis made — 261 per cent tannin per cent above the standard strength that all extracts on the market must register The writer can see no reason for our American canning industry being de pendent on British India or any other foreign country for their tanning materials when right here in South Florida we possess similar conditions as India or any other tropical sections of the world when we possess such an abundant supply of various tanning materials much of which is superior to the foreign agents ' We will take for example our Florida sumac The writer has made an analysis of this well known tanning agent showing that it is far superior in quality to the sumac grown in Virginia and comes the nearest in quality and strength to the south of Italy sumac Florida mangrove bark though not as strong as the African mangrove but when combined with other tanning agents which are here in ahundanee makes good marketable extract for certain kinds of leather THE Australian pine tree offers tan xun In the needles which the analyses show are very strong in tannin and resemble-very much the chestnut oak wood extract (not the bark) in quality and strength This being one of the writer's most recent discoveries and having tanned several hundred hides and skins the writer found the needles have many advantages over the method employed In the extraction of the tanic-acid from the wood of the chestnut oak To accomplish this It means the felling of the tree hauling the logs a great distance to the extract plant where a costly chipping machine cuts the wood into fine bits before entering the large leaching tanks which extracts the tanic-acid from samej whereas the Australianneedies are obtainable by simply trimming the trees no long hauld to the extract plant for center of a large plantation of these Australians it never would be necessary to go beyond the limits of the plantation to obtain a perpetual supply of tanning material for a great many years to come It never being compulsory to move tlie extract plant in order to get closer totbe source of your supply of raw material which many of our hemlock and oak extract plants have to ado when after several years' of'-cutting down the- trees and stripping of the bark it becomes necessary- either to abandon the plant jp r move the costly machinery closer to the unfelled trees - " I'assume youare all familiar -wlth the Australian tree ’and know j how rapidly it grows 'Gwtiigto the rapidity xC its growth and the tanning industry being considered on par -with as s “j v z j ws — -

i - IF these Australians were never allowed to grow above five to six feet In Jiglght t would facilitate eiymueh in harvesting the needles and at 'the same time would bring forth a much thicker growth of the needles Afa-chinery for trimming as well qs raking up the needles and conveying same to tractors would in the writer’s mind be the plan to handle this new tanning material in getting it to the extract plant Though it requires from five to six pounds of the needles to make one pound of the extract the easy manner in which these needles are gathered and hauled to the plant in comparison to present methods 'employed in peeling bark from the trees $Liide from the costly chlpplng-machine employed in making the chestnut oak wood extract the needle extract will cost so much less owing to the easy method of obtaining the raw material that the quantity of needles and the handling of same more than offsets the tremendous cost of felling - trees This being taken into consideration the neecllq extract will sell on par 171th - the -present price paid-for the chestnut wood extract — which is one of our most staple American extracts on the market today 1 The proof of the various statements here made can be verified by the writer's associated chemist Roy H Wisdom cbief chemist of the Stanford Dye Wood Extract company Stamford Conn- At the'present time we are per: fectlng a recent discovery made by the writer- which will ' make perfectly white leaflier This -

In -getting’ the' tanning industry interested in these various new tannin agents The world war put a crimp in his plans and for some time since the war ended the foreign tanning materials became a drug upon the market and owing to so many tanneries being compelled to shut down owing to there being great quantities of leather which the government threw upon the market it - naturally required time to change these- conditions Now that the government has taken steps to investigate the amount of tanning materials being used by the tanners of this country the writer is calling on them at this time for their co-operation for if they feel that the tanning industry of America is in danger of running short on our own native tannin agents they should not overlook South Florida's reserve tanning materials ' They should do as they have asked the tanners — c6-operate -
