The new blue sky bill passed tho

it. Tliis bill does away with licens

license it thereby placed its approval
on the stock and salesmen were not
slow in playing up this feature.
To Remove Grit From Eye.
Small foreign bodies which aro not

Is strong enough, It will cause a vio

by means of a clean handkerchief.

was approved by the house.
Tiie senate refused to nass a bill
providing for a stntc medical inspec
tor to bo appointed bv tho state su
perintendent of school and work from
his ofllcc. One reason was because
such an official would duplicate work
now being done by the state health
department. Another reason is that
the senators think wo are getting
too much in tho way of Inspection.
The bread bill finally passed the

most of them arc of minor import

the legislature is not likely to have a

speeding up is done.

the extended displacement of

Association states that ample evi

displacement is cnonomically unsound,
resulting in less reliable, less efficient
service, at greater cost. Consumers,
grain dealers nnd grain producers
alike suffer from sucli substitution,
which, according to a lending traffic
manager in Now York City, is due
chiefly to ignorance on tho part of
business men regarding the actual
cost of operating horse drawn and
motorized equipment. As detailed

It is understood that tho sifting

Because the older birds furnish the

cases, tho flock may well bo kept freo

extension bulletin 03 of tho College
of Agriculture, "Tuberculosis in Poul

birds is always n good .practice and
will undoubtedly help to retard tho
si-rcad of tuberculosis. Sanitation is
-also an important consideration in
the prevention of this disease; Clean
liness of pens, houses, eating and
drinking utensils, well-lighted and
ventilated houses, have on excellent
influence on the general health of
the flock as well as on tho resistanco
of the birds to infection. Over
crowding should bo especially avoid

be present tho intimate contact with
many birds in close quarters is the
host possible factor for tho rapid
spread of tho disease.
