The World's Salt Wonders

Salt is one of the essentials of life, and the beneficial effects of its various uses are being better appreciated every year. The annual salt product of the United is about twelve million barrels of two hundred and eighty pounds each. Such signal success has been achieved by manufacturers in the efforts to improve the quality of the product that importations of refined salt have almost ceased to be a factor in the industry. The principal salt producing states are California, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia. The entire salt product of Louisiana is rock salt, from the Petite Anse mine. Nearly all the product of California is obtained from sea water by solar evaporation.
