MILK SUPPLY GOOD
Quality of Product Here Rated
High by Professor John
BEST OF ANY CITY VISITED
Agricultural College Expert Compli
ments Dealers and Authorities
Results of Tests.
I nave found that Hock Island is
fiii-'iishcd with a better quality of milk
tLan aiy other city I ever visited. The
t.-sts fijow better averages of butter
f;;t." This statement made by
Professor John M. Trueman of
the University of Illinois, last ev
emng, is the substance of his con
clusions regarding the milk supply of
Iltu'k Island. Mr. Trueman's samples
for the tests were gathered without
wrirninj? ?i d the showing made in his
tests :;e?ks well for the dealers and
h alih a'.thorities of the city. Only
three of ire samples from the dairies
fell below the standard of butter fat
some were below in total solids, and
r.no .-nmpie was found to contain for
nildihyb. but on the other hand the
majority were up to the standards, and
some even above the standard. The
showing in the tests of milk from the
restaurants and hotels is charged by
Mr. Trueman to the restaurant, rather
than the dealer, for obvious reasons.
Ik INIiioiMlonnl Work.
Mr. Trueman's report on tbe tests
of Kock Island's milk supply was made
during the course of his talk on milk
production and care at the city council
chamber last evening. The council
gathered in committee of the whole to
hear the discussion, and a number of
dealers and ethers interested in the
subject were present. Professor True
man, in introduction defined his posi
tion in relation to the state and the
tate food commission. He is connect
ed with the agricultural college of the
state university, and is engaged in
educational work along the line of mu
nicipal milk supply. The object of the
department is to secure a universally
good quality of milk for the cities of
the state, by educating the producer
and the consumer as well. The work
he is in charge of is entirely distinct
from that of the food commission in
regard to milk supplies,, the food com
mission taking up the work along po
lice lines, while the agricultural college
works along educational lines.
Production and Care.
lie spoke of the importance of the
subject, and showed by reports from
Rochester the bearing that the quality
of the milk supply has on the death
rate of children. "The effects are more
serious from dirty and impure milk
than from skim milk or adulterated
milk," said Professor Trueman, and
lie cautioned his hearers particularly
on the necessity of seeing that the milk
supply is clean and that no dirty sedi
ment be allowed in the milk. He
spoke at length on the methods of the
ordinary dairyman that result in dirty
and impure milk, and gave a number
of suggestions for the betterment of j
tao nniK in mis respect.,
sell it to
illustrations of ways in which milk may
be spoiled by the consumer by improp
iueHtiou of I'riee.
The question of price was discussed,
and Professor Trueman declared that
the consumer would make no com
plaint if the price of milk were raised,
provided the milk was produced in a
manner to warrant the increase. "But
if the dairyman raises the price to 7
cents a quart, make sure that he is fur
nishing you with 7-cent milk. If he
produces his milk as it should be. it is
worth 7 cents, and really can not be
produced for 5 or C cents a quart. He
declared that the time is coming when
every city will employ an inspector,
and when every dealer will be required
to have a license from the state board
of health before he can sell his product.
He arraigned the restaurant and ho
tel men for furnishing skim milk at 5
cents a glass, equal to about 20 cents
a quart. He declared the restaurant or
hotel keeper to be just as liable if he
sells his patrons a poor Quality of
milk as the dairyman or milk dealer is
when his product fails to meet the re
He said: "I wish the
would buy bottled milk a
their customers in the o
age. I know of one town
where I can buy pint bott es of milk
just as they were bottled at the dairy
of a reliable dairyman."
Speaking of the field here he said.
"Rock Island is to be congratulated on
taking up the work of inspection of
milk so vigorously, and I predict that
under the leadership of the health
commissioner you will still further Im
prove the product furnished to your
city. Those dairvmen and companies
that are striving to improve and are
furnishing the people with a high grad
of clean milk, should be supported and
Tent ix WltneMMed.
Following Mr. Trueman's discussion
of the subject, he made a test in the
city laboratory in the city hall, to show
his hearers how the facts are learned
about the quality of the milk. The test
employed is known as the Babcock
test. The specific gravity of the milk
is determined by means of an ordinary
lactometer. Sulphuric acid is used to
dissolve the ingredients than butter
fat, and by means of a mechanical de
vise, the butter fat is separated and
brought to the top, where the percent-
e may be determined. Mr. Trueman
expressed himself as pleased with the
encouragement given him here, and
complimented the city on its laboratory
and the evident interest of Dr. Meyers,
city health commissioner, and the other
city officials, in the milk supply prob
lems. What Teat Show.
Following are the results of the milk
tests made by Professor Trueman dur
ing his visit in the city. The table
shows the grounds for Mr. Trueman's
statement in regard to the high quality
of the supply furnished this city. The

"For 16 years the people of Illinois
and Iowa more d'rcctly. but supported
by the states of Minnesota. Wisconsin
and Missouri with endorsements from
every water ways convention assem
bled, have regularly asked congress
for appropriations to construct this ca
nal and they have been granted en

and open it for traffic.
"We have been informed that some
private interests are presenting a
claim for a change of plans which will
cause a long delay in the completion
of this canal.
"Our people in the west seriously ob

interests that will suspend the con
struction or in any manner prevent its
"Criticism comes from some quarters
as to the size of this canal and the as
sertion made that it will be of litfl?
use unless large enough for the pas
sage of large lake vessels.
"Lake vessels, if the canal permitted
their passage, could not. navigate the
Mississippi river with a draft of 33 to
20 feet of water and a transfer would
have to be made at its mouth to barges
to take the cargo to its destination.
"The capacity of the present canal
will permit barrces of COO tons passage
through its locks. A tug boat running
at an expense of $30 per day can tow
three of these barges and in two days
at most tow them through from Chi
cago to the Mississippi river with 3.800
tons of freight at a cost, including
transfers of cargo, to not exceed $500
for a round trip, leaving a nice profit
to the owners at a cost of not more
than 5it cents
