The reason Cardui has attained
such wonderful success in the treat

is that it acts specifically on the

Protecting Infants and Invalids
EALIZINO the importance
of absolutely pure milk
in the diet of Infants
and invalids and medical
societies in many of the
larger cities of the Uni
ted States have arranged
to provide milk produced
under strict sanitary con
ditions. This milk is
sold to consumers under

health and saving the lives of helpless
This commission favors all agencies
which aim to give the public a safe
and healthful milk supply. It is es
pecially concerned In guaranteeing a
limited supply of milk for the use of
infants, invalids and convalescents.
The commission holds that milk is
pure only when It is kept pure at
every stage from the time it is drawn
from the cow until it is used as hu
man food. The commission holds
that contaminated milk cannot be ren
dered pure by artificial processes and
that while such "Processed Milk" may
be useful for general commercial pur
poses it is not suitable as food for
infants or invalids.
Only healthy cows are used to pro
duce certified milk. These are tested
with tuberculin by United States gov
ernment veterinarians and passed as
healthy before the milk is certified by
the commission. When any cow in a
herd furnishing certified milk is found
diseased she must be immediately re
moved from the farm. All dairy barns
must be sanitary In construction, with
special regards to light, ventilation,
general cleanliness, and water. All
milk Is requitred to have a definite per
centage of cream each day, a variation
of only one-half of one per cent. being
allowed. Certified milk must be tree
from all disease germs and not con
tain over ten-thousand non-pathogenic
germs (not producing disease) in each
drop. Commercial milk often has as

Milk should be taken into the house

it is impossible to have the bottles of

house, arrange to have the refrigera

on the outside. It is always possible
to provide locks for these boxes or re

the neck of the bottle and the cap
should be washed and then carefully
wiped with a clean cloth before the
cap Is removed. Remove the cap with
a sharpipointed instrument, so as not
to push the cap down into the milk.
Once a bottle is opened, it should be
kept covered, both to keep out dirt
and bacteria and to prevent absorption
or undesirable odors. The original cap
should not be replaced. Instead, place
an inverted cup or tumbler on the top
of the bottle. The milk should be used
from the bottle as needed and any un
used milk should not be returned to
the bottle after having been poured
into another vessel. Do not let milk
stand in a warm room on the table
any longer than is necessary. Do not
place milk in a refrigerator compart

Before returning the botles to the

such a home, the milkman should not
be allowed to collect them again until

these exercises, but if the fists are

one were trying to fling them trog

It is only in this way, though, that
good will result in the exercise, for if
the work comes merely from the el

will see that if the arms above the
