State Hoard Issues Statement in Itc
gard to Skimmed Milk Ruling.
Columbia, Nov. 20.-"Uniiecessar
ily, there appears to be a lot of mis
understanding with reference to the
recent declaration of the State Hoard
of Health regarding the stile of skim -
med milk in small cans," said Com
missioner Harris yesterday. "The
matter is very simple, (.'?inned whole
milk, or condensed milk, may bo
sold as heretofore, lt is tho skimmed
i milk at which the State Hoard of
Health is aiming in its regulations.
"As this department is charged
with the enforcing of tho r?gulations,
and as our inspectors will have this
matter under their observation, 1
wb'i to get tho public straight on
th matter. Tho State Board of
Hon!th made this regulation not be
] cause tho canned skimmed milk is
poisonous, but because it lias not full
non rishment.
"The regulation of the State Board
as to the skimmed milk provides that
it must not be sold in packages or
tins containing less than one gallon
of Ihm id or ten pounds of powdered
skimmed milk; also, that at the
stores, shops or places where such
condensed, evaporated or powdered
milk is sold, a sign must be dis
played, upon which is printed in
black letters at least live Inches in
height and worded as follow: 'Con
densed, evaporated or powdered
skimmed milk should not bo fed to
babies or invalids-it has not the
food vaule of whole milk.'
Mothers who huve reared their lit
tle ones uopn the condensed milk of
certain well established brands need
feel no alarm, for that kind of milk
has not been put under the ban of
tho State Board of Health. And as
the skimmed milk i.s not actively in
jurious, but is merely lacking in fat,
the Stato Board of Health has sug
gested that the merchants who have
been innocent purchasers of stocks
be allowed ninety days from Oct. 7th
in which to rid themselves of what
they have on hand, and wholesalers
have been ordered to buy and s.?ll ro
more except under the form provided
by the State Hoard of Health.
"On account of so many people
flocking to the centers of population,
where it is impractical to keep a
family milk cow, lt i.i necessary for
some mothers io find a substitute

800,000 FARM I?HS ASK Kl) TO (JO
On Strike as Protest Against the Ab
normal I iodation of Prices.
Kansas City, Mo.. Nov. IS.-A na
tion-wide producers' strike to com
bat the falling prices of farm pro
ducts was urged in a call sent out to
day by tho National Farmers' Union
to its local unions throughout the
The call, in the form of a resolu
tion adopted at the national conven
tion of the organization here, went
forward to the secretaries of local
branches of the organization, which
represents producers of grain, cot
ton, wool and live stock, said to num
ber SOO.OOO.
The proposed strike was urged in
retaliation for what the convention
considered abnormal deflation in tho
prices of farm products, through
which, it was asserted. "American
farmers have been robbed of one bil
lion dollars in reduced value of pro
ducts now on hand." All fanners
were urged to hold this year's pro
duction from the markets until "pro
fit-making levels'" were restored.
The action of the National I'.inn
ers linton was in line sviih a ' whoa!
strike." called several weeks ago by
Hie Wheal Growers' Association of
tho Hulled stales. Delegates asserted
thal a considerable quantity of Ibis
year's wheal i .> was being held off
the marke; by farmers.
Reduction of production in Hie fu
ture was threatened "unless the
prices of our products are fairly re
adjusted to the end that we may ob
tain jus! returns for our labors and
investments," in another resolution
approved by tho convention.
Officials of the organization point
ed out thal members were not under
obligation to obey the terms of Hie
strike, imf expressed tho belief that
such a movement would bo effective.
A conference of representatives ot all
farmers' organizations of the coun
try was called to meet in ?-\f .Louis
on Dec. IO lo consider the creation
of a national farm marketing board.
Charles s, Barrett, of I nion City,
fla., who has nerved for t'n'teon years
ns president of the union, was re
elected last night.
Mr. Peto Wing of Hawk Point.
Mo., made a lot of money out of his
hogs. Ho .say?: "1 fed them Dr, Le
Gear's Hog Prescription, lt hat) given
wonderful results in putting gains
on them with less feed. They were
on heavy feed for only a month,
averaged u BU tn of 2 Vfe pounds dally,
and were only 7 mouths, 10 days old
when sold."
Mr. Wing profiled hy the advice of
Dr. LoGoar, Graduate Veterinarian
and Export Poultry Breeder,-of 28
years' standing.
Dr. LeGoar's Hog Proscription
will put weight on your hogs also,
heeau.se it expels worms, purifies the
blood and conditions them so that
they gain flesh on less feed.

or poultry, it is money in your pocket
to get the proper Dr. LoGear Remedy

.Policemen's Union Surrenders.
Boston, Mass, Nov. 1 S-More than
S.000 members of the Boston Po
licemen's Union voted unanimously
last night to instruct officers of the
union to surrender its charter to the
American Federation of Labor. A
statement issued after tho meeting
said that the "conditions leading up
to the police strike of 1019 have in
many ways been remedied, and ef
forts are being made to improve them
at all times." No members of the
present police forco are members of
the union.
