donco to show that tho grafting oper
ations of Mark Slater wero not en
tirely confined to his business
transactions with J. H. Brolsford,
but wore carried into practically nil
tho purchases mado by him during tho
second term of his administration.
In some of tho othor purchases
made by Slater from supply houses In
Cincinnati and Chicago, the graft ran
high, In somo cases to as much as 800
per cent of tho vnluo of tho goods
In no subsequent caso cximlnod,
however, has thcro been found a bill
paid whero no goods at all wero de
ltvorcd, as was found In ono lnstanco
in tho Bralsford transactions. Still
tho rake offs wero many and largo. It
should be stated that so far ns tho
investigation has gono, nothing has
been found to challcngo tho Integrity
of tho other supply houses that sold
goods to Slater. Tho rake-off went to
tho agency through which thoy wero
sold, nnd It is presumed that the
agent divided It with Slater.

Tho resolution reeltos that tho ca

to $500,000 a year for tholr im

efit to oven tho pcoplo living around

No ono knows tho vnluo of tho ca

placing this immcuso sum to tho
credit of the highway fund, Mr. Smith
proposes that appropriations bo mndo

Facts About Milk Only Per
Somo Idoa of the lmportanco of

from tho fact that about ono sixth of
tho total food of average family is
furnished by its products.
Of tho various mammals whoso milk
lo used for food in different parts of
tho world may bo mentioned tho goat
in tho hilly districts of Europo; tho
buffalo, in India; tho llama, In South
Amorlca; tho camel In desert coun
tries, and tho mare on tho steppes of
Russia nnd Central Asia. Sheep's
milk Is used In somo countries for
making cheese, nnd in othor ways,
and tho milk of reindeers is common
ly used ns food In the Arctic regions.

Good, unadulterated milk should
contain about 87 per cent of water and
13 per cent solids.
Milk contains bacteria of many
kinds and In varying numbers. They

produce many other changes in tbo

Dlsoaso germs, notably those of ty

family nnd community.
Tho problora of keeping milk sweet
