KING AND QUEEN
Ceremony of Medieval Splendor Mark
Was Brilliant Seene.
London, June 22.?On this day of
George V, king of the United King
dom of Great Britian and Ireland and
of the British Dominions beyond seas,
nothing has been wanting to make the
solemn and impressive ceremony one
long to bo remembered not only
throughout the country but In every
corner of the great empire.
Never before in history has the im
perial note been struck In such a
magnificent manner, its imperial as
spect undoubtedly has been the most
remarkable feature of the coronation.
George V, more than any sovereign
of tbe past represents the embodiment
of tiie imperial idea. He only of all
his predecc&sors on the throne travel
ed through Iiis vast dominions and
thus acquainted himself at first band
with the needs and aspirations of all
the various peoples of Iiis empire.
Then by happy coincidence the Ira
iperlnl conference sitting :it the time
of the coronation enabled all the rep
resentatives of the king's overseas do
minions to participate In the signifi
cant ceremony at the opening of the
new reign, which, if the hopes of those
attending the conference bear fruit,
will bring all parts of the empire into
closer and moro intimate relations.
The great state pageant was car
ried through with dignity and Impres
siveness and made a deep Impression
upon all those privileged to witness it,
and it was accompanied by an out
burst of loyalty throughout (lie king
dom tbat might appear surprising at
a period in the world's history when
thrones i>o longer appear to be estab
lished on the unrest foundations.
The remotest suburbs of the great
city and every village In the land to
night gave evidence of devotion and
loyaHy to the throne. Not the humb
lest home but displayed a fiag or il
luminated device, portraits of the king
and queen and a loyal motto.
The stirring event:- of the day were
carried through without hitch or seri
ous accident or. any kind. Tbe weath
er was less favorable than had been
hoped for, but the rain was not suf
ficient to detract seriously from the
splendor of t he pageantry.
Charles P. Taft, who had a sea'

Pledpont Morgan over the south
cboir, from which he had a splendid
view of the a hole ceremony in the
abbey, was greatly Impressed.

HOW TO OBTAIN SANITARY MILK.
Clcmson Krtenslon Work?Article
Very few of the consumer:; of milk
give thought as to where the milk
they drink comes from or under what
conditions it was produced. So long
as it has no bad color, taste, or smell
they drink and are satisfied.
If the purity of milk could be judg
ed by the above standard, the milk
Inspector would have no work and
there would be no such office. It is a
sad fact, however, that such a stand
ard will not hold good, as milk may
have no bad taste, color, or odor and
yet be very dangerous to the health.
Many of the outbreaks of typhoid fev
er, scarlet fever, dysentery, and other
diseases can be traced to the milk sup
What then is sanitary milk. It is
milk that is produced by healthy cows,
and which is handled in a cleanly man
ner from the time it is drawn until it
is consumed. To ho healthy the cow
should not only show no outward signs
of disease, but should >;ive no reaction
when tested for tuberculosis. She
should be kopt clean and her udder
should be washed well before each
milking. The milker should milk witli
dry hands and not follow t*lie bad
practice of dipping the fingers into
the milk while milking. The milker
should not, be allowed to handle the
milk at all if there should be a case
of Contagious disease in his home.
As soon as the milking is finished
the milk should be removed from the
barn and at once strained through a
good grade of cheese cloth. If it is
to be sold at retail, it should be cool
ed and bottled. If it is to he kept, for
home use, it should be put aside in as
cool a place as possible and away
from anything.that has much odor.
Milk will very quickly absorb th.lor
of meat, vegetable etc., If kept near"
ISspecjal care should 1)0 given at Ibis
season to the milk that is fed to babies
and children. Much of the stomach
troubles could be avoided if only clean
milk was given them to drink. \ '
