MILK INSPECTION IS NO FUN
Incident Showing How Hard lt la to
Force Sanitary Rule* on Dirty
The trials and tribulations of a milk
inspector trying to force insanitary
people to live according to sanitary
rules are shown in the issue of the
Healthologist. the official organ of
the Milwaukee health ' department.
The story follows:
A Milwaukee milk inspector during
a farm inspection, came upon a place
hopelessly filthy, disorderly and run
down. A motherly person with a big
heart, but Arm anel weird convictions
listened to the young man's sugges
tiona. Then looking over her spec
tades pityingly, she said:
"Boy, my mother was ninety-sever
? years old when she died. She was
: dirtier than I am, and lived in 1
dirtier house anei drank dirtier milk
If she could nt and it I guess then
ain't no reason why I and the cit;
folks that get milk Hom this farn
can't stand lt too."
And not being able to answer tha
argument, the mi'.k inspector left he
?kindly withal, but yet voicing he
indignation over "them there nei
fangled idees of cleanliness."

We now tufn from our studier* in
the muh If est o or Inaugural address of
Jn--un to oue of the outstanding Inci?
dents of his life of service.
This lesson ls a dramatic one. lights
and shadow- surprise and revelation,
rebuke and encouragement are rai I

son ls well chosen. leaving 'he multi?
tude to whom he had been peaching.

Had Little Faith.
It was a great storm, v. 37, like?
wise a great calm. The psalmist says,
"great peace have they who love thy
law," great peace have they who truly
know and love Jesus. (John 14: "Ti.
His rebuke to the disciple-, v. 4''. waa
so gentle as to lose its sting.-"how
ls lt that ye hav,- sn ;:;;le faith?" They
had some faith, lt is true, for they ap?
pealed to him in their great need, but
oh so little Our i roportion of faith
is the measure of our fear. What
wonder tv. 411 that they were amr.zsd.
This man of Bash who had been sleep?
ing the sleep of IntenM weariness com?
manding the sea and that it should
obey him with tha meekness of a
child. "What ma?ner of man is this?"
Nineteen hundred yean has failed to
answer that unary.
?teaching the other side they entered
the land of Gadara. There they met
a demoniac who ls, we believe, a type
or picture of great sin In that he was
ial without restraint, "no man could
bind him." v. 3; (bl he was Injuring
himself "cutting, etc.." v. 5; (c) he
was separated from his friends, "dwelt
among the tombs," v. 3; (di he wai
"unclean." v. 2. There is also evi?
dence of the ftitlllty of human resolu?
tions and the ...unless of allen .rts at
control or reformation, see verse 4.?
"no man had the strength to tr ir I
him." Then note the torment of h's
life, v 7.
Sins to Account For.
Church men:hers have no right to
condemn the liquor traffic and then
to rent stores in which to carry on
the same. Naturally therefore. I
people when they saw their ilic;.al
gains interfered with should request
Jesus to depart, v. 17, and this eve .
in the face of what had been done for
stricken man. Luke tells us (Luke
8:37) that they were holden with a
great fear. Fear of what? Surely act
any fear of this Galilean teacher, but
rather were they fearful of the effect
of his life upon their material pros
lave i Parity. Big business will have some

of known facts they still press for

\On the other hand why did Jesus re?
fuse such a logical and seemingly rea?
sonable and proper a request as Ikat
recorded in verse IS? Was it not a
very natural request and an evidence
of gratitude as well? Jesus, however.
