    Excerpt from On Methods Used and Results Obtained in Making Germicidal-Efficiency Tests of a Disinfectant: For Use in Railway Sanitation

    The disinfectant submitted to me for tests of its germicidal power was said to consist of a concentrated solution of chloride of zinc, chloride of copper, and bichloride of mercury, with a few drops of terebene. The terebene was added as a telltale, to inform the officers whether the disinfectant had been faithfully used, rather than as a disinfectant. I was also informed that the disinfectant contains one part in five hundred of bichloride of mercury and a little over 45 per cent. Of chloride of zinc. The chloride of copper was added because a little copper salt was desired to fix sulphuretted hydrogen, and the chloride of zinc solution was made very strong on account of the well-known deodorizing properties of this material.

    I am also informed by Dr. Dudley that this disinfectant is made by the railroad company, for its own use, under the supervision of the officers of its laboratory. Old battery zincs which are no longer useful in the batteries, muriatic acid, sulphate of copper, common salt, and bichloride of mercury are used in its manufacture. The actual cost of the disinfecting material in an eight-ounce bottle is about two and one half cents. The material is distributed to the service in wooden boxes, holding twenty-four bottles each, and in barrels. If these boxes and bottles are returned, the real cost to the different parts of the service is the figure given above. If the bottles are broken and the boxes destroyed the cost is somewhat greater. In barrels which are not returned the cost is somewhat less than in bottles, no labor being required for bottling. There were made and used on the whole Pennsylvania railway system during the year 1892 366 gross of eight-ounce bottles and 69 fifty-gallon barrels.

    The specifications to which the disinfectant must conform are given as follows.
