If one's ideas are at all guided by an artistic out look it is not easy to establish any intimate relations between a milk shop and the opera. But it appears that Mrs. Ronalds, the well known Anglo American society leader, has discovered that milks well as music, has its vir tues. To all Americans residing in or vis iting London, from time to timo and to all English men and women who are anybody in society, the name of Mis. Ronalds is familiar, as one of the most generous and enthusiastic patrons of the opera to be fouujl in England, if not in Europe. It has become a surprise to many of them that her activities, have discov ered a new field for exploitation. In a word ,she is going into the dairy busi ness, which she proposes to run upon co-operative, lines. The initial capital sho and her friends are providing will be some thing like $30,000 and tho central idea of tho scheme is to run a number of milk shops in London to commence with. Should the scheme prove practi cable, the enterprise; will bo extended to largo provincial centers, including Manchester, Sheffield, Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham and Bristol. What has prompted Mrs. Ronaldo in vpnturing into an undertaking of this kind is the feeling that the milk sup ply of London and of England general ly, with one of two exceptions, is no toriously bad.. Tho police courts aro occtipied eve'ry day with prosecutions brought against milk dealers whose criminal propensity for adulteration is not confined to the wntering process, but includes the introduction of deleter ious substances highly dangerous to health to hide tho absence of nutri tious qualities essential to good and pure milk.
