THE MEMPHIS APPEAL: SATURDAY, MAY 4; 18S9.
THE MILK WE DRINK.
TBS PRESENT SYSTEM OF TESTING
IT3 PURITY WORTHLESS.
the Epeolflo Gravity of Milk Proves
Nothing and the Presence of Foreign
Substanoea More Harmful Than the
Simple Addition of Water.
Milk Inspector Joe Thiers lms received
from Dr. Theodore liango, Milk Inspector
Of Cincinnati, a volume containing among
CtlieiB, that functionary's report.
The. question of milk adulteration is
elaborately discussed and an exposition
tuado of the various methods of testing.
The lactometer, such as is In use in this
city, Is worthless. Specific gravity alono,
Jie claims, shows nothing bocauso specific
gmvity is a movable standard and can be
artificially Increased or lessened and
tampered with in various ways. The ad
dition of a little salt to tlio milk will raise
the specific uravity. to high water mark,
While the addition of a littlo burnt sugar
or other drug will give the fluid a rich
Jrellow color. It has been ascertained that
onie of the richest Jersey milk measures
tip disfavorubly with milk of an inferior
quality when tested by the ordinary lucto
xneter, hence this instrument is absolutely
worthless. There are ninny methods of
testing milk iu use but the best seems to
be tho Fesscr lactoscope. By the aid of
this instrument not only the specific
gravity of tho fluid can be measured, but
presence of any foreign substitute can bo
"I liko the Feoser lactoscopo best," said
Mr. Thiers, "and mean to secure its intro
duction in Memphis, if possible. Tho old
fushioncd lactometer now iu use is worth
lets, and absolutely so for milk that has
been churned up on these streets. In
good milk there ought to he at least 13 per
cent, of milk solids; that is 0.3 per cent, of
solids exclusive the fat Good milk con
tains b7 por cent, of water, and when
milkmen add more water than that tho
quality sullen as the ratio of quantity in
croaix's. To detect the prosen.ee of foreign
substances should bo of mora importance
than to uncertain specific gravity merely.
Water, when paid lor at the rate of 40
Cents per gallon, is rather an expensive
commodity, but water is at least harmless.
Chalks, snccharino, oleaginous or other
deleterious substances should first of all
bo dimwered and the practice of using
them abated. Infants and invalids, those
who imiot require a pure article of food,
dcwnd uik)ii milk, and if this cannot be
obtained in its purity their lot is not a
''Again, all impurities In milk do not
necessarily result from willful adulteration.
I have seen milk just as taken from the
csti that was notoriously impure and unlit
for use. I see in Cinciuunti the authori
ties ordered nine cows killed, and con
demned tho .milk of 101 more, as being
unlit for use. Cows that are diseased or
in ill health, or cows that are improperly
fed or watered, give milk that is unwhole
some, and should not bo used. 1 have
had samples of milk sent me by people in
the city that are absolutely n'stoniHhing.
One in particular I liavo hud in a boltlo
for over a month, and it shows no siunsof
chunking for better for worse, for thicker
for thinner. It is a sickly blue liquid and
that is all. I think the exigencies of tho
cn -e demand a more thorough and scien
tific method of testing tho purity of the
milk sold in thu city. Tho powers of tho
Miik Insiieclor are too cirrumicriled for
practical purpowsand should be vnluged."
' IMPROVINO TUB LEVEES.
An Open Letter to the Board of Levee
To lic Lctc roinuiiaaloiH-ra:

Unit a good suggest ion should receive care

sented. Wo have tho times of peace and
1 tho auitgestion, and now want your con
sideration. You aro at peace with tho
great warring element, tho father of devas
tation and overflow, by his own consent.
Bitu-o '85 you have improved the time
much by construction of greater breast
works of dirt npon tho old plan, increased
bars and width to prevent lineage than
ejver l)cforo known. No Improvement,
however, has been attempted. Yet the
fallacy of confining within your bounds
riia of simple unprotected dirt, of the
chat actor found along its lino, has ofton
end will always be JtMuonstratcd in lime

CJiiirarter of soil's rxrvioitncM to water,
It easy absorption and formation of ooie,
bo peculiar to alluvial lands, and sloughing
oil and absorption by the water in rontnri.
1 will state it as a proposition in fart
that ninety-nine out of a hundred of tho
break in tho levee could he directly at
tril tttablo to this cause, aiimige, as it is or
dinarily termed, raving where the leveo
Is too closely situated to tho channel only
excepted. And 1 believe it to be a fact
that the levees have never con lined tho
Water for sny considerable time to an ele
vation anything liko commensurate with

continuing until the whulo base of tho

diwdution point is reached. We havo

The augeslion I would make I simple,

However, il might be well to cf
