PAGE SIX MILK QUESTION IS UP TOJHE CITIES State Food and Drug Commis sioner Makes Statement In Annual Report. PROBLEM IMPORTANT ONE HE SAYS DAIRY PRACTICE HAS ADVANCED BUT LITTLE OVER METHODS USED BEFORE PURE FOOD STATUTE. (Palladium Special) Indianapolis, Dec. 22. It Is up to the cities th;aielves to regulate 'ho milk buslni and see to it that iho loople get good milk, according to H. K. Barnard, r;te food and drug com' missioner, in bis annual report, which he has Just compiled but which has not yet been printed, Mr. Barnard says on this subject: "No phase of the pure food work must be studied more carefully and watched more diligently than the reg ulation of the milk supply. Dairy prac tice seems as yet to have advanced little beyond the methods in vogue the tuberculin test; just so soon as the consumer makes it a point to in form himself of the dairy which sup plies him, and. most important of all, just as soon as he shows a willing ness to pay the dairyman what it costs to, produce clean milk, plus a reasonable margin of profit, then and not before the milk supply will be clean . and wholesome, free from the dirt of the stables, the germs of tu berculosis and the millions of bacteria which develop in a few hours in un- cooied and unclean milk. Results of Test. "During the year 482 samples of milk have been analyzed, of which 399 were legal and S3 were illegal. These analyses represent samples of milk produced In dairies in every part of the state and shipped to the labora tory by the state food inspectors and by the inspectors of those cities and towns which have an organized corps of health inspectors but which, as yet, maintain no municipal laboratory. While the use of preservative is far less extensive than formerly, unfor tunately some dairymen still disregard the health of the infants along the line of their milk route and poison their food by formaldehyde and borax. The sale of formaldehyde for use in food products and teaching of its use is prohibited by law. And yet the Lyons Department Store at Hammond kept for sale to those who wished it a solution of formaldehyde which was called "Milk Keep," and which they recommended to their customers as a reliable agent to keep milk from sour ing. The pure food law fixes certain standards for milk. The sanitary food before the pure food laws were thought of, or the sanitation of the jaw- exacts certain conditions of clean food supply considered necessary. The average dairyman, no doubt,, ap preciates the necessity for cleanliness in his kitchen and at his tank, but fails utterly to put into practice at the dairy barn and milk room any of the essentials of cleanliness which his wife insists upon in the home. Is Usually a Failure. The attempt to arouse among dairy men the interest in their work which is shown by every other class of men in producing and handling the food supply, usually results in failure. Nearly every city and community llness. If the milk samples collected have violated either law, they are classed as adulterated and prosecu tions brought against the responsible parties.

The word "pluck" affords an in stance of the way in which slang words In the course of time become adopted into current English. We now counts among its citizens some men, i meet with "pluck" and "plucky as a farmer or a business man. who not the recognized equivalents of "cour- only appreciates the necessity for a clean milk supply but as well sees the possibilities in the operation of a model dairy. Unfortunately the model dairies are too few to furnish suffi cient milk for the needs of the public and for some years to come this im age" and courageous." An entry in Sir Walter Scott's "Journal" shows that In 1827 the word had not yet lost its low character. He says (volume 2. page 30, "Want of that article black guardly called pluck." Its origin is obvious. From early times the heart portant article of food will be produc-; has been popularly regarded as the i ed and dispensed with disregard for : seat of courage.

If the milk industry of this and every other state is to be placed on the same level as the busi ness of the baker, the confectioner, terms the united mass "the pluck." London Notes aud Queries.

Just as long as the housewife ac cepts trom her milk man a bottle of milk which shows a black sediment of manure in the bottom, the milk man will continue to supply dirty milk. Just as soon as city milk inspec tors refuse to grant milk licenses to dairymen who have dirty buildings, improper equipment, no ice supply and who will not submit his cattle to caslon. He stopped, listened till the crowing ceased and then, with a look of surprise, pulled out bis watch. "Morning already V he said. "My watch is only at 10. But there can be no mistake about it.

The men were all hoboes of the profes sional type and each claimed to be per sonally acquainted with Mike Mullln, the political boss of Cincinnati. The tramps were arraigned on a charge of intoxication and all pleaded guilty. Their names were Frank White, Ros coe Smith and John Irish. Judge Converse gave them pne hour to get out of the city and they promptly "va moosed." John H. Morgan, another bum, who interceded in White's behalf is well educated and claims to have at tended college for two years in the east. He says he was formerly em ployed on the Cincinnati Enquirer un til liquor got the best of him. A i Local Theaters Not Unusual. May Haye you heard of Clara' bard tack? . Belle No. What is It?
