bottle is on its way. Dairymen of the
state would do well to prepare to re
eeivf in ihe near future an order front
the advisory board of the state depart
men t of health forbidding anything
but indestrucUve bottles.
I>r. Samuel (J. Dixon, commissioner
of health, never has fancied the milk
container that is passed around the
community promiscuously. In his lat-.
est "Little Talk on Health and Hy-1

eret that the present milk containerj
"will have to give way in the near
future to the destructible bottle that
will never be used the second time." ;
Doctor Dixon says:
"The majority of the milk consumed
in urban communities is delivered in
bottles. Most of these are of familiar
types with a flanged top sealed with
a paper disc. Sometime between mid
night. and the morning, tens of thous
ands of these bottles are delivered
upon doorsteps and porches.
"To handle one of these bottles with
ease one naturally picks it up by the!
top. holding on to the flange or rim.
This is the way the delivery man picks
them out of the crate and the way
they are put into the icebox.
"When ihe milk is served the pa*
per cap is lifted with the fingers or
pried out with some pointed utensil
and the milk poured out. If you have
ever performed this operation and
most people have, you know that the
milk llows over the bottle rim that
has been badly exposed to the often
dirty hands of the various persons who
handle the bottle before it is delivered
to the consumer.
"This may seem a small matter, but
in truth no easier method of contami

could be acquired.
"Before the milk is poured the bot
tle tops should be scalded to insure,
cleanliness and safely from contami
Owing to the fact that the present
milk bottle is used in houses of the

Even in Home of Cornwell, Gov-1
ernor Gets a Most Enthusi
ROMNEY, Oct. 21.?Governor Henry
D. Hatfield has just completed a most
remarkable tour of Hampshire and
Hardy and Grant counties, in which lie
delivered twelve speeches to audiences
that were remarkable for their size,
interest and enthusiasm. He made the
trip by automobile and spoke at points
in the interests of those counties |
where no meetings had been held for)
years. One of the significant engage-!
ments was at Romney. the home of|
John J. Cornwell, where Governor Hat
field was tendered a reception and
banquet by a committee of citizens,
most of whom were Democrats. Pol-j
itics was not mentioned at this dinner,!
and every one seemed to bo perfectly
at ease. About thirty of the party
were leading Democrats of the town,]
and all that were invited came with]
the exception of some live or six.
Among the ones who stayed away were j
the editor of air. Cornwall's paper, thej
Hampshire Review, and W. B. Corn- i
well, a brother of the candidate. After
the banquet the parly marched to thej
court house in a body, where they]
found an audience which packed the j
court room. j
Dignified Spe. cli.
The governor's speech was dignified, j
went right to the point, and made a
tine impression. At Baker, the most
enthusiastic gathering of the twelve j
was addressed. At Moorefleld there j
was a crowd of 300, probbaly half of
them Democrats. After that meeting i
the governor's party drove into Grant
county, where they held a series of
meetings. In this county they were
on more friendly political ground.
The reception that the governor was
given in the Democratic counties of
Hampshire and Hardy threw such a
scare into Cornwall's local managers1
that they sent out an SOS call at once,
and C. W. Osenton. of Fayette county,
was billed In after him, as "going u>|
expose the rottenness of the Hatfield
administration." lie followed the gov
ernor at Romney, and was introduced
by W. It. Cornwell. who opened the
talkfest wit a tirade of abuse of
^everybody ami everything Republi
can. Osenton followed him with a
speech wntch served to make all Re
publicans who heard him indignant.1
and a number of Democ rats expressed j
disgust with the sort of tirade and
tbtisc indulged in by the Fayette coun
ty machine politician.

In Hampshire county the Republl-j
cans expect to reduce the Democratic
majority by 200, There are many
Democrats in this county who arc not
supporting Cornwell. Several of them,
after the meeting at Romney, frankly
