As on result of the recent lecture In
this city by Dr, J. W. 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
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
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.

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

Pharmacy Board Will Be Strict in
Regard to New Regulations.

Pnre Milk May Be
(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."

of Atlanta, Ga., secretary of the National

they are employed testify to the pitiful

themselves. Their children are numerous,
