Thursday evening. April 1
Every housekeeper wants to g!ve
hPr famjy pure unadulterated, whole-
some food, and as milk is one of the
most nutritious foods which come into
the family, this particularly should
come to her pure, clean and unadulter
ated, and she should know positively
before giving up the milkman, w hen
someone says the milk is not good,
whether it is pure or not.
This can only be done when the
housekeeper understands a few- sim
ple tests which may easily be made in
SIMPLE IIO)JE TF.STS.
For Richness It is an easy matter
to examine the milk and note the
cream line, which in quart bottles
should be about four inches down from
. the top. and the cream, when poured
out. should amount to about one-fourth
of the contents.
For Dirt After the milk has stood
undisturbed for an hour hold up the
bottle bo that the bottom can be read
ily seen. Xote whether there is any
dirt, or sediment whatever. This is a
visible teal for the Purit-" of milk' but
a rather disagreeable factor of the dirt
in milk is that perhaps more than
three-fourths of this substance is dis
solved in the milk and does not show
its presence to the eye. This dissolved
dirt may usually be detected by the
taste and smell of the milk. Clean
milk has no distinct flavor simply a
sweet, pleasant taste. If any flavors
are present ttx-y are artificial. .

ly with a knife to let out the whey.
Ivet Etand for a few minutes, drain off
all whey possible and continue to pour
off the whey as it accumulates. There
will then be a lump of compact curd.
Cut this in two with a knife so that it
will fall out. The character of this
curd will show verv cljarlv the sani-
tary quality of the milk. " If spongy
and full of numerous holes, undesir-
ahle forms of harteria nartiniiari v
those that produce gas, are present.
This class of bacteria is considered by
authorities io be one of the cau:s of
epidemic diarrhea. If firm aad smooth
with few or no holes, the milk i3 clean
and has been handled in a sanitary
manner. Tlrs test may be continued
further by placing the curd back in
the bottle and filling half full cf water.
If the curd floats it indicates that the
milk is unclean; if it sinks tie milk is
For Adulteration Keep the milk for
two or three days at ordinary room
temperature; if, on removing the cap,
it does not smell sour, is not curdled,
but has a putrefactive odor, this Indi
cates that, preservatives have been
used. While they are not used as
much as formerly, a number are still
found, among which may be mentioned
formaldehyde, boracic acid, salicylic
acid, sodium carbonate, ttc. Formal
dehyde is most common. A very sim
ple test for this preservative is as fol
lows: Take an ordinary laboratory test
tube, place in it two tablespoonfuls of
milk and add about an equal amount
of commercial sulphuric acid (care
should be taken not to kt this touch
the clothing or hands), pouring the
acid dow n the side of the tub so that
it does not mix with the milk. If for
malin is present a violet ring wiil ap
pear between the layer of acid and
milk. In testing milk for boracic acid
or borax, two or three tablespoonfuls
are placed in a "bottle with twke that
j amount of a solution of one teaspoon-
I ful of alum in one pint of water, shak-
;n vigorously and filtered through 1- j
I One beaspoonful of the mixture is '
, placed in any dish not metal and five
drons of bvdrochlortc imuriatic) acid
added. A strip of turmeric uaDer (s-
j cured at the drug storet is now dioned
near a stove or lamp until dry. If hor
, of household ammonia changes the
color to dark green or greenish blue.
