LINCOLN. Deo. li. (Special.)- Food
CommlMlonr Jackson baa completed
tests of 1JS dairies In the vicinity of
Jjlncoln. Of this number only six were
Traded rood. Forty-three are declared
to bo fair. The rest are checked up as
being- poor. An average of S.K per cent
butter was shown in the testa. The law
requires 3 per cent.
The food commissioner has inaugurated
a campaign for celaner milk. He urges
consumers of milk to test milk for olean
linens, and not to buy from a dairyman
who does not ' furnish clean milk. He
make his appeal 1 nthe following- lan
guage: Why not test your milk at home. A
simple tenting apparatus has been Im
provised by removing the bottom of a
large bottle (which is easily done by
tying about the bottle at the place where
the break is desired a string saturated
with kerosene; this is burned and the
bottle Immediately submerged in cold
water. The break Is thus easily effected
effected. Every housewife should keep
such a testing bottle and make frequent
sedimentary tests of milk and then refuse
to buy of dairymen who do not furnish
clean milk.) The teat In a very simple
matter; invert the bottle and use as a
funnel; place a small piece of absorbent
cotton over the mouth of 4he bottle and
outside of this a layer of cheesecloth.
These are easily held in place by a rubber
band over the neck of the bottle. Four
the milk through the bottle and thus all
the sediment may be collected on an
area one inch or less In diameter.
Check on Baal tattoo.
From a simple method of making a
sedimentary test of milk it is possible to
detect whether dairymen are using the
proper sanitary precaution in their
methods of handling milk without even
visiting such dairies, although the state
dairy Inspectors visit and score many of
these dairies. Last winter a sedimentary
test of the milk used in Lincoln was
made by the food commission and It re
vealed the fact that some of the milk was
very unclean. The commission has Just
completed another sedimentary test of
138 dairies In the vicinity of Lincoln and
finds conditions somewhat better than in
the former test, but there is still room for
Improvement In many dairies.
Dairyman Tells How.
One dairyman whose milk graded No. 1
with the sediment test was asked how he
produced such clean milk. He replied
that he had visited the experiment sta
tion and found ho wthey cared for milk
there and that be used absorbent cotton
in straining the milk.
The Inspectors are Instructed to repeat
the test in the near future, not only In
Lincoln, but in all the larger towns of the
state, the results of these tests to be
published, showing the names of dairy
men and their grade of cleanliness, also
the test of butterfat of milk and cream.
Sedimentary test of milk Is only one of
I the many features emphasised by the
food commission, but it Is one In which
both dairymen and the consumers of milk
may unite in aiding the commission in
bringing about more healthful and In-
vltlng conditions in the milk supply.

of the ten packers for alleged violation
of the criminal provision of the Sherman
anti-trust law, both sides were ready to

five more men who would complete the
It was expected the packers' lawyers
would turn back another full panel to
the government before the end of the
morning session for examination.
Questions asked the prospective Jurors
thus far have disclosed , the fact that
farmers are closer readers of newspapers
than are those who' live In the city.
Asked to what extent they resd the
newspapers, the farmers have let it be
known that they keep In close touch
with subjects of national Importance
whether of a business or social nature.
As a result of the examination the
lawyers have found that the men from
the rural district as a rule have de
cided opinions on government .'regulation
of business and In many cases are even
better versed In the Intent and meaning
of the Sherman act than are many of
their city neighbors.
