Health Commissioner. Joseph De-

quartern in which ' to conduct hl-J

the foot of Tweny-fourth street, and
is now being fitted up with the ap

of the health department for som
time past, but has leen useless on

Home little time will still be required
in putting the apparatus in place an 1

ter this is done tests will be made
regularly of the prcnluct handled by

.- Quarters Not Permanent.
The room at the waterworks is not
intended as permanent quartern for
the testing apparatus of the health
department, for during the next year
or two it w-ill be needed by the water
works superintendent and his assist
ants. But it will meet present needs
pending the providing of permanent
headquarters for this very important
branch of the municipal executive
The health commissioner states
that he expects to have the depart
ment in working order in 10 days or
two weeks. Then he will be glad to
hare those who have reason to believe
that they are being furnished with
adulterated milk to submit samples
to him for free analysis. Milk from
all the dealers will be taken and an
alyzed regularly twice a week. In
order to facilitate the work the coun
cil at its next meeting will be asked
to consider an ordinance giving the
health department more specific pow
ers in the desired direction.

Peruna in a similar case, and I at once procured some.
"It was indeed a blessing to me, as I am on my feet a large part ot
the day, and trouble such as I had affected me seriously, but four
bottles of Peruna cured me entirely and I would not be without it for
three months salary." JOHN T.' SHEAHAN.
