Price of Milk Advances
to Fifteen Cents a Quart
Omaha'dairymen have given milk
prices another boost. For a long time
milk has been selling at 2J2 cents a
quart, but now the price has gone to
15 cents for a single quart, or seven
quarts for $1. The contention is that
scarcity of feed and an advance in its
price has made it necessary to in
crease milk prices.
