Klme of Fort Dodge on "Animal Tuberculosis and the Milk Supply" the municipal authorities are plan ning a crusade against the sale of impure milk In Council Bluffs. City Solicitor Kim ball is drafting an ordinance requiring the tuberculin test of all cows in dairies sup plying milk In Council Bluffs. Mr. Kimball said yesterday that he would be unable to have the ordinance ready to introduce at the meeting of the city coun cil tonight, but expected to complete It before the end of the week. In order that the proposed, measure might be discussed with a view to having It meet the situa tion as nearly as possible a meeting of city officials, Including the health offi cers, dairymen and others Interested in the question of pure milk is being ar ranged for tomorrow evening by Mayor Maloney and City Solicitor Kimball. The meeting will probably be held at the city hall.' As at present outlined the ordinance will require licenses for all dealers supplying milk In the city. All milk sold In the city will be required to be produced from cows which have been subjected to the tuber cuiln test and all dealers will be required to show certificates that their cattle have been so tested before they will be Issued licenses. The ordinance will also provide regula tions for the sanitary condition of all dairies which will be subject to regular Inspection by a city official. It Is Mr. Kimball's Intention, so he said yesterday. to frame the ordinance so that It will bear equally on dealers whose dairies are located In Council Bluffs and on the firms nd dairies which, located In Omaha and In the country adjoining the city, supply milk to patrons In this city.

BARGE LINE FOR SHINGLES Barllna-ton I.omber Dealers will Fight Bill Discrimination by Water Transportation. BURLINGTON, la., June IS. (Special.) Alleged discrimination by the Hill system ot railroads may result In the building up of a larger and very profitable rlvr freight traffic In lumber and shingles. It Is stated that because of this dlscrlmlna tlon against Burlington, Rock Island, Clin ton and Dubuque In making rates on shingles from the Pacific coast, the lumber companies have decided to handle their shingles by barge hereafter. The Hill lines make a rate of 66 cents on shingles to St. Louis, Hannibal and Chicago, while the rate to St. Paul Is 65 cents. .But the charge to Burlington, Rock Island and Clinton Is G5 cents for the same service The Burlington Lumber company of this city has decided to retaliate. They ordered some shingles td St Paul and thence south to Burlington via the Mississippi river by barge. They claim they make quite a sa Ing over paying the railroad company 13 cents a hundred additional freight for shipping from St. Paul to Burlington. The experiment was successful, and the Burlington Lumber company will take the matter up with other lumber companies In the middle Mississippi river valley, with view of establishing permanent service In this line. It Is expected this will be a start toward the establishment of a new freight industry on the upper Mississippi river. AUTOMOBILE) SUPPLIES. Sperling a, Trlplett, J27 Broadway.

DRUG LAWS TO BE ENFORCED FOR MEDICAL AND FAMILY USB BUY YOUR LIQUORS AT L. ROSEN FELD CO., 61 SO. MAIN. 'PHONE 833. Pharmacy Board Will Be Strict in Regard to New Regulations. MISBRANDING CLAUSE RIGID Effort Will Be Made to Pat Stop to Alcohol and Drofe Hahlte Pnre Milk May Be Danaeroo. (From a Staff Correspondent.) DES MOINKS, la., June 13. (Special.) Strict and absolutely impartial enforce ment of the laws of the state Is the order under the present state administration, and especially is this true with relation to the new pharmacy laws. Very soon the druggists will have to be gin getting their liquor application blanks from the county auditors In such way that an absolute record will be kept, and there can be no evasion of the law. The new pharmacy board will be very strict In re gard to the literal observance sf this new law, which Is tegarded by the progressive druggists as tending to protection of them selves and the public. Another law whose enforcement devolves Immediately upon the new board Is that which was passed In 190" to "prevent the adulteration, misbranding and Imitation of drugs." This very Important law had provision that all goods placed In stock prior to July 1. 1907! were exempt until April 1, 190H. Inasmuch as it would be difficult for the state to show that a mis- branded article had been placed In stock at any specific time practically nothing could be done toward enforcement of the law until April 1 of this year. As a mat ter of fact the old board had put In a vast amount of time in a process of educating the pharmacists of the state as to this law, and this work was one reason for the unusual activity of the old board the last two years. But Just at the time when enforcement was to be commenced the old board was made the Victim of political necessities. It Is known, however, that the new board Is In favor of strict en forcement of the law. and preparations are under way for the prosecution of every druggist In the state who violates the law. The "misbranding" luw requires labeling of drugs as they are and especially requires every article containing alcohol, morphine and similar substances to be labeled show ing the proportion. The enfoi cement of this law will place Iowa In line with other states In the matter of reform In the handling of drugs. It will go far toward putting an end to the evil of the drug habits. Pnre Ioith Milk and Babies. That perfect milk Is as dangerous for bablig as some having a foreign substance within It Is claimed by H. R. Wright, state dulry and pure food commissioner, and he warns mothers of nursing children to pre pare their bnby food wlthh care. "Freth milk, after It has stood a few hcurs," said Mr. Wright, "will raise some of the heavier butter fat substance to the top. The third top should be taken from the milk and the receptacle filled with water alid two tablespoonfuls of sugar added. This when warmed Is a good food for the babies. Pure milk Is too rich for the babies and under the agitation we are conducting and demands we are' making It Is very probablelowa will have milk up to standard. "Dairymen can keep milk up to the stand ard In butter fat. If the milk is testing below the required butter fat a dairyman may put In enough crtam to bring It up to the standard. The courts have ruled that cream and milk from a legal view point are the same substance and there Is no Illegality about mixing the same things together. So there is no excuse for the dairyman not having his milk up to stand ard and this department will continue to demand that there be the required amount of butter fat In all milk sold." Evangelical Lutheran Convention, The annual conference of the Evangelical Lutheran church of America opened at Clear Lake, la., with 500 In attendance from Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Ne braska.

The session of the National Conference of Charities and Correction meeting here this evening, was In charge of the committee on chil dren. During the evening A. J. McKelway of Atlanta, Ga., secretary of the National Child Labor committee, for the southern states, attacked the Institution of child labor In the south. He contradicted the claim of southern manufacturers that con dltlons there have been exaggerated, that the numbers of tolling children are rapidly decreasing and the evil Itself disappearing, by showing many stereoptlcon views of actual conditions in three of the larger Industries. Mr. McKelway said In part, "The Amer lean Intelligence appreciates the evils of the system. In racial degeneracy, perpet uated poverty, growth of Illiteracy, the disintegration of the family, the Increase of crime, the lowering of the wage scale and the swelling army of the unemployed. "The oyster packing Industry In the south Is extensive along the gulf coast. The wages today are below the standard of American living, and the workers are mainly Bohemians brought from Balti more. During the summer season they are employed In the fruit and vegetable can ning Industry of Maryland, whose child labor law has a special exemption for the canning Industry. The communities where they are employed testify to the pitiful plight In which the workers often find themselves. Their children are numerous, and from eight years old and upwards are employed In shucking the oysters piled upon tram cars, after having been run through a steam-heated chamber. Out of one force of 160 hands at work, I counted thirty-five chlldVen not over ten years old, apparentlyl From the peculiar conditions of their employment, they have absolutely no chance for an education. "The cigar Industry In Tampa, Key West, and to a lesser degree In Richmond, Peters burg and Danville, Virginia, employs a large number of children. In Tampa alone the number of children under 11 Increased In two years from a few score to over a thousand. Formerly, only Spanish and Cuban children were employed, but now a great number of the native white people of Florida have moved to Tampa that their children may learn this trade. The In evitable effect will be the lowering of the wage scale In what Is now a high-waged Industry. "The students of the child labor problem know that the cotton mill has always been cursed with child labor and Its natural ac companiment of long hours and low wages. On account of nun-enforcement of laws, themselves defective, southern cotton mills are conspicuous for the employment uf children. Hundreds of them have been photographed at work, within the last year, and they are but typical of tens of thou sands of them working from ten to twelve hours a day, or night. The evil Is too great to be concealed, and the children too numerous to be hidden. There Is no pos sible excuse for such wholesale abuse of childhood." The Weather.
