Additional Details:
A view is here shown of the west wing of the new Department of Agriculture, Washington, D.C. The activities of this department cost the government about $16,000,000 annually and 17,000,000 copies of 1,200 different pubications are issued by it during a year. Its bureaus of chemistry, weather, animal industry, plant industry, soils, statistics, entomology, biological survey, and forest service are of inestimable value to the nation, as evidenced by the fact the Bureau of Animal Industry alone inspects seven billion pounds of meat in a year. It is located in the Mall, west of the Smithsonian Institute
