Since Tuesday last, unknown to the
dealers, the milk supply of this city
has been undergoing a governmental
Inspection, The Inspector, Prof. M. A.
McDonald, of the state experimental
station, is still In the city, but as he
has finished the work of securing sam
ples,' tho announcement of his pres
ence and his purpose here will not In
any way work against the object of his
The state board of health, which Is a
part of the department of agriculture.
Is conducting the Inspection. It Is not
confined to this city, but extends to all
the larger cities ot the commonwealth,
and will also be carried Into New York,
where much of the milk output of
Scranton and vicinity finds a market.
Other food products are to be likewise
examined and a report covering the
whole field published. The report Is In
tended to serve as a guide to future
legislation along the line of a more
wholesome food supply.
Prof. McDonald Is a chemist at the
experiment station. He was selected
by the department of agriculture to
make the milk tests and was granted
a three months' leave of absence for
this purpose. He has already visited
eight cities and when he has finished
here will go to New York city, where
he will conclude his mission.
CAME HERE QUIETLY.
He came here quietly last Tuesday
and made himself and his mission
known only to Food Inspector Thomas
Cullen. The addresses of the various
leading milk depots and other neces
sary Information being secured, the In
spector, without disclosing his identity,
went about and secured what samples
he wanted. Then with the aid of the
apparatus at the High school labora
tory, the use of which was granted by
Superintendent Howell, and the new
Babcock tester, located In Inspector
Cullen's quarters In city hall, the gov
ernment man proceeded to find out Just
what quality of lacteal the good peo
ple of this part of the state are being
The tests at the High school labora
tory were made from a bacteriological
standpoint. Those at city hall were to
determine whether or not the milk had
been out without an umbrella. The re
sults of the tests are of course not to
be disclosed until they are presented to
A Tribune reporter was privileged to
watch thp experiments with the Bab
cock tester Frldaj afternoon, and
found It a very interesting operation.
The samples were arranged in a row
In half-pint bottles, each labelled with
a number corresponding to a number
set opposite a dealer's name on the re
port sheet. A smaller bottle with a
long slender neck was set In front of
each and was tagged to correspond
with the larEe bottle It faced. The
milk In the larger bottle was thorough
ly shaken and a part of It, enough to
half fill the smaller bottle, was trans
ferred to the smaller bottle. An equal
quantity of sulphuric acid was added
ana when the whole had assumed a
brownish black hue the testing bottles
were placed In a machine which caused
them to revolve at the rate of 1,000
revolutions a minute, the bottles, dur
ing this operation, swinging horizon
tal', with the stems towards the
MEASURING THE FAT MATTER.
After ten minutes of whirling a little
hot water Is Injected and then there Is
another minute of whirling. After this
the bottles are removed and In the
neck of the bottle is found solidly
wedged all the fats that the milk con
tained. The fatty matter being the
standard by which milk Is measured,
tho only computation necessary Is to
measure the quantity of fat In the neck
of the bottle, which Is very easily and
simply done by means of a scale
marked on the bottle's neck nnd which
bears a fixed ratio to the contents of
the bottle. One glance tells the per
centage of fat, and the result Is marked
down on the report sheet.
The principle of the test as explained
by Prof. McDonald Is this: The sul
phuric acid separates the fat from the
water, albumenolds and other ingredi
ents of milk, and by reason of Its spe
cific gravity being less than tho other
component parts and a great deal less
when the heavy sulphuric acid Is added,
It Is readily made to seek the top of
tho bottle by the centlfugal force of

tion of a littlo hot water and a con
tinuance of the whirling It is forced
Into the neck of tho bottle, whero the
measuring scnlo Is located.
At the bottom of tho bottle Is found
sulphate of lime, formed by tho ac
tion of the acid on the albumenolds.
Then comes on top of that a hetero
geneous mass, which might be called
liquid charcoal, being the result of the
wet combustion caused by tho meeting
of the acids and the Ingredients of the
milk, other than the albumenolds, fat
nnd caaelne. This latter floats at the
top of tho bottle, Just below tho point
where tho fat Is wedged In the neck.
TEST OF GOOD MILK.
Good milk should register between
twelve and a half and thirteen per cent,
of fat, and when It Is below that It Is
unquestionably watered or skimmed.
Rich milk will, of course, show a larger
percentage of fat, but the minimum is
twelve and a half per cent., and when
It Is below that It Is Impure under the
laws of the Btate. Prof. McDonald will
probably leave here tomorrow to pur
Bue his investigations In New York.
When he will have completed his work
the department of agriculture will have
at Its command a report showing Just
what kind of milk everv large dealer

dealing out to Its customers and will
