Treat all the dairy implements the
sane as you do the milking pails.
and pay particular attention to the
strainers.- Never use one that has not
been cleaned.. The -strainer is the re
eeptaile of all the elements of filth
about the dairy-it is the meeting
point of all the badness that follows
the dairy. It I.s the nest where the
microbes are hatched and the central
point from which they radiate. HWre
you have got the villain's in a bunch
and you should take advantage of
your opportunity and give them a hot
dose of steam or boiling water, and
until they become thoroughly cooked.
If you make it a practice, as some
do, to strain the milk several tines
on its way from the cow to the set
ting. then treat everyone of t1ii itrain
ers in the same way. Do not let' one
of them escape. The stations tell us
that if one -of these straines is neg
lected the microbes multiply to an In
(redulous degree. They lay in wait
to enter the new milk that is warm
and ready made for a good breed"ng

is a good start and they wifl do'the
