I ., l n ‘ . 5- DIVISION OF CHEMISTRY. _ ·· ' r, lg l Here follow the more important chemical analyses and inves= W, tlgations made in the Station laboratory during the year 1892,. ll* ‘ but not published in a.ny of the Bulletins. The work already m published is mainly fertilizer control work in Bulletins 41 and Of 43 ; some work on marls, in Bulletin 39 ; and the usual work in· l yi he connection with the study of methods of analysis by the Asso- ` YQ? _ clatlon of Official Agricultural Chemists, and to be found in their proceedings. . BH, A number of analyses of commercial fertilizers have been ,H_ made for farmers, but, being only of temporary interest, it is li, not thought necessary to publish them here. As a rule, as heretofore, the fertilizers sold to farmers and sent in by them A for analysis have, in most cases, come up to the required Daily tests of the milk of the Station cows have been made, and a large mass of figures is accumulating from which inter- esting results may be derived at some future time. _ A number of rocks and minerals have been identified for various persons, and several analyses of potable water were- fFji°¥{.;i made, which it is not thought necessary to report in detail.
