SIDETRACK HORSE ORDINANCE
In Fear of Doing Some One Injustice,
Council Delays Imposing
Through fear of doing nn Injustice
and causing hardship to someone, the
legislative committee of the council
yesterday pigeonholed n, petition for an
ordinance making it a misdemeanor to
stable more than six horses or mules
within 10 feet of a dwelling and to
connect all stables, where this number
or more are kept, with the city sewer
When any action is taken on the
question, which will be -when more
complaints are received, according to
the decision of the committee, it will
probably be to establish a district
where horses may be stabled in rea
sonable numbers. This will be film-
Jlar to the fire limits and the pickle
factory and similar districts. This is
Councilman Kern's idea and Is looked
upon with favor by the members of the

FOR PURER MILK
STANDARD IS RAISED; LESS
All Wagons Must Carry Signs and
Must Be Provided With Can.
vas to Keep Fluid
In an effort to reduce the contamin
ation of milk, and provide Los Angeles
babies with purer food, the board of
health last night raised the standard
of milk and adopted certain rules and
regulations to which dairymen must
comply if they continue to sell milk in
The new rules are amendments to
sections of ordinance H492 (new series).
In this ordinance section 7 is amended
"AH wagons or vehicles used in car
rying or transporting milk or cream
shall have the name of the dairy and
the words 'milk' and 'cream' painted
thereon in plain and legible English in
letters or figures not less than two
inches high. All dairymen or producers
of milk shall cool or reduce the heat
thereof to a temperature not exceeding
60 degrees Fahrenheit before the same
shall be put into closed cans or market
ed. Every dealer in milk or cream,
who uses in his business a wagon, cart
or other vehicle, shall, during the
months of May to September of each
year. Inclusive, have and keep upon
such wagon, cart or other vehicle, a
covering of canvas or other material,
so as to securely protect the contents
thereof from the rays of the sun."
The requirements for cooling the milk
and keeping it cool are entirely new
features to the milk ordinance and are
Introduced in order to keep the count
of bacteria as low as possible. At a
temperature of 60 degrees bacteria do
not multiply rapidly.
The per cent of milk solids and but
ter fat was raised and the per cent of
water lowered. Milk, hereafter, must
contain 12.5 per cent milk solids, where
the per cent was formerly 12; 3.5 butter
fat instead of 3.4 as formerly, and the

TERRIBLE TOGO LOSES TAIL
Big Newfoundland Dog Cemented to a
Post by Mischievous Boys, Ne
It was the tale of a tailless dog that
led to the arrest of Charles MacKay
while / playing near Third street and
Grand aveune last evening.
John F. Haenl, proprietor of the
Fleur do Lis hotel, 333 South Grand
avenue, had sworn vengeance on "the
gang of bad boys" who insisted on
making life miserable for him. After
taking council with a neighbor, he de
cided that a large Newfoundland dog
was the instrument of peace needed.
Togo, the large Newfoundland, ar
rived Wednesday morning and peace,
reigned for a time. Wednesday evening
Togo seemed uneasy and fretted con
siderably, but the master looked with
pride on his protector. To Haeni's
dismay he was rudely awakened soon
after retiring by a crowd of angry
guests about his door.
Haeni was told that tar had been
smeared over the walk in front of
his home and the audacious Intruders
had dared to even smear his front
steps. But where was Togo — he of the
A searching party was organized and
after hunting over the premises one of
the party heard in the distance the
plaintive whine of the dog. Togo was
iound, his tail tightly cemented to a
post with wood glue. An ax was
brought into play, and now Togo has
It might have been the boys, it might
have been most anyone, but Haenl Is
convinced he knows the guilty ones.
In responap to complaints, MacKay
was arrested, but he Is merely held on
suspicion at the detention home.

HORRORS! HEALY MAKES PUN
Friends of Councilman Alarmed by
His Loquacity Since Recent
Barney Ilealy's friends are beginning
to hover over him with traces of anx
iety In their faces, for the council
man of the Eighth ward has evidently
been jolted some. He Is growing pos
itively loquacious, that is for Barney,
and he capped the topmost pinnacle
of a climax by perpetrating a pun yes
terday morning. Barney Healy and a
pun! 'T would have been lese majesty
a few short weeks ago to have men
tioned the two in the same breath and
Barney probably would have frowned
the most severely of all.
It wasn't a particularly hilarious pun
or one for which the American Humor
ist association is liable to confer on
him a D. P. degree, but It was a pun,
nevertheless, and delivered with Intent
and malice aforethought.
The legislative committee was dis
cussing a cow ordlnnnce and had ar
rived at the conclusion that all bulls
should be excluded from the city limits,
when Barney Healy spoke right out in
meeting and said:
"Oh, leave them alone. The city has
enough bulls of its own to account for."
"Barney's" eyes twinkled under their
heavy brows and the twitching of the
corners of his mouth lifted the massive
mustache a bit. Councilman Smith was
so astonished that he stuck the lighted
end of his cigar in his mouth, and
Councilman Ford looked around in
alarm for some weapon of defense.
Healy was compelled to go through
a difficult surgical operation a few
weeks ago and since then he has been
exhibiting alarming tendencies. At last
Monday's meeting of the council he
said "Yes, sir," to a question of the
chair and in the committee yesterday
he spoke at least three sentences which
had four or more words In each.
