At a meeting of the household economic
department of the Woman's club . held
Thursday morning the women made their
first report of their Investigation of th
dairies from which Omaha receives Us
milk supply. Only tight dairies have been
visited bo far, but the Investigation has
only begun and Is to be continued in sea
son and out of season untVj th conditions
under which the milk 1 produced and
served to local consumer come a little
nearer th standard . set by the nverage
housewife who has the welfare of her
family at heart. Th women made the in
spection personally and unannounced, and
they report there Is still much room for
Improvement before some of th era vent
of th unsanitary features are removed.
Without exception there waa complaint of
the car of the cattle, even in thoe dallies
that have emphasised this feature In their
Authorities claim that one of the most
dangerous kind of filth that get Into
milk come from It contaot with the udder
and with the handa of th milker and
then dripping Into the pail. Without ex
ception the women complained the car of
th cattle and th practice of the ntMker
necessitated the presence of this kind of
dirt In tha milk.
Cow Stand la Filth.
In several places It Was reported cows
were allowed to stand In slim and mud a
foot or more deep, and there was no evl
dence of any attempt to groom the cow, j
At one dairy In the vicinity of Ruser's
park the cattle have to stand In deep slime ,
and mud to reach the water trough, and '
the well , supplying the water which
washes the bottles and- waters th
cattle Is less than twenty feet
from the trough. Boda Is used generally
as a means of cleaning and sweetening th
bottles, but in the smaller dairies Igno-
ranee Is largely responsible for the bad (
conditions existing. In ome cases th ,
feed Is poorly taken care Of. In other ,
places the cattle are badly stabled, and j
wherever the milking was witnessed there .
was complaint of the dripping from the
hands Into the pall. .
Among the dairies visited were M. P.
Madson's. Schall's and the Hultt, near j
Ruser's park; the Alamlto dairy. Soren
son's dairy at East Omaha and the Sun
rise dairy at Dundee. Regarding tha us
of preservatives there could be no proof,
but the dairymen all denied using It, and
the women propos getting- at the facts by
other means.. Dr. Ralpth, Commissioner
of health, having promised to co-operate.-appearances
The appearance of the milk wagon and
the men wer reported as entirely unre
liable means of, Judging th condition pre
vailing at the dairies.
Due allowance was mad tor the diffi
culty in getting reliable men . to do the
milking, owing to the long houre and the
comparatively small pay. In tome of the
dairies the milking begins at 1 a. m. and Is
not finished until 8 a. m. It begins again
at t p. m. and Is finished between J and 10
p. m. Thirty dollars a month is the average
salary, with $15 allowed for board.
The women were all reminded of their
own responsibility In returning tha bottle
promptly and well cleaned, as the car Of
bqttles Is necessarily a large Item of ex
pens to dairymen. The Investigations
will be continued and reported at the next
two meetings, and the women have invited
all Interested to attend.

Best Treatment tor Colds.
"Most ordinary colds will yield to th
simplest treatment," says the Chicago
Tribune, "moderate laxatives, hot foot
baths, a free perspiration and an avoidance
of exposure to cold and wet after treat
ment." While this treatment Is simple, it
requires considerable trouble, and the one
adopting It must remain indoor for a day
or two, or a fresh cold Is almost sure to
be contracted, and In many Instances
pneumonia follows. Is It not better to
pin your faith to an Old reliable prepara
tion like Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,
that Is famous for its cures of colds and
can always be depended upon? Then no
unusual precaution la - necessary to avoid
contracting a fresh cold. It alio coun
