The city council last evening decided
to go ahead with the improvement of
Fourteenth avenue, which means that
the board of local improvements will
soon advertise for bids and the avenue
will be paved this year.
The Bluff Improvement association
had representatives there and they had
asked Joseph L. Haas, who had been
special counsel in the case from the
time of its opening in the county court
until its final adjudication in the su
preme court, to explain the situation to
the council in order that it might be
decided whether or not it wished te
May Proceed Safely.
Mr. Haas advised the council that it
might proceed with safety, now that
the court had passed upon the matter.
On account of the various decisions
that have been made with reference to
the law under which the assessment
was made, some of the aldermen
doubted the advisablTiy of going ahead
with the case. This was explained by
the attorney, who said that each case
was decided upon its own points in
volved, and that the decisions in no
other case could affect this one, as it
has been finally passed upon by the
supreme court and no new points can

Mayor McCaskrin read to the coun

was printed in full in these columns
This started some argument, and the
final action taken was upon a resolu

communication on the table, which car
ried. The mayor stated that the com
munication was addressed to him, and
that he simply gave it to the council to
keep the members informed as to what
was going on in the case; that they
could take any action upon it they
thought proper, or needed to take no
action at all; that he knew what his
course would be when the 30 days

MAKE MILK TESTS
health Commissioner G. Q. Craig
Submits Report to
SOME BELOW REQUIREMENTS
Mayor Has Requested Health Commis
sioner to Make Monthly Tests
Will Be Published.
The report of Health Commissioner
G. C Craig was filed and read at the
meeting of the city council last even
ing, and it was ordered that the milk-
tests be published. With reference to
these tests he says: "The results of
the examination of milk and cream are
appended. Two of the dairies have
watered milk and four others are be
low the standard, the milk not being
quite as rich as It should be.' Notices
were served upon these six dairymen
One point should be understood, how
ever, and that is. some cows normally
produce milk which contains only 2.5
to 2.8 per cent of fat and less than
s.5 per cent solids, and is not injurious
because of its poor quality, yet the
dairyman is liable to prosecution. That
is, the milk, while not as rich as it
should be. and legally up to the stand
ard. is not on that account dangerous
"The result of milk tests show wa
tered milk from dairies from J. M. Be
man and Dexter & Springer. The
samples from the dairies of L. Saelins
Ed Jens and F. Sherer show milk defi
cinet in total solids:

The ordinance provides that no milk
shall be sold that contains less than 12
per cent of solids. The mayor an
nounced that a test will be made every
month and published in order that the
public may know what kind of milk
it is getting from the dealers.

Triumphs of Modern Surgery.
Wonderful things are done for the
human body by surgery. Organs are
aken out and scraped and polished

entirely.; bones are spliced; pipes take
he place of diseased sections of veins;
antiseptic dressings are applied to
wounds, bruises, burns and like injur
ies before inflammation sets in, which
causes them to heal without inatura-
ion and in one-third the time required
by the old treatment. Chamberlain's
Pain Balm acts on this same principle.
