This is shown by the records in die office of the city clerk. Scarcely 20 of the dairymen who bring their nuiK tc the city to sell, have applied for the required license, whereas, according to County Agent George W. Norris there are 40 dairies in this vlcluitv who place their supply on the i'wal , market. Applies To Retailers, Too The new ordinance, which is qu'te stringent in its regulation of the sale of milk, requires also that all mer chants retailing milk to their cus tomers take out a license from tin city clerk. According to a census j made by the Annapolis Creamery j Company. 69 stores in Annapolis handle this necessity, but of this I number only thirtv-fiv.e have taken | out the stipulated licenses. Whether ! the other merchants are going to I scratch the health giving fluid from ; their list of supplies, or arc hoping to | evade the provisions of the ordin we time, or an investigation by the c**y officials, alone will disclose It has also been found Hit that n -, other requirement of the ’Milk ordi ) nance is being treated with contempt by thosp interested. Tli! Is the 1 w 1 that all milk sold in Anne Arundel county must come from tuberculin tested herds only. It has leaked out that there are several dairymen whose cows are not tuberculin-tested j though this Is blamed upon the failure of the necessary officials to respond to j calls for the test in time to comply • with the time limit of the new ordi nance. !
