Wattles. To him will be referred

Nebraska under his jurisdiction.
Mr. Wattles has further increased
his potato inspection plan by an

To date inspectors have been ap

plan taken that railroads are giving
every assistance by discouraging
shipments of potatoes that do not
bear the inspectioni certificate. How

notice on the car which will state
that the car contains ungraded po

Spanish influenza is a streptocci bacteria. . The contagion is

like the common La Grippe except a new specie of streptocci is"

Pasteurization Kills Bacteria.
It has been proven absolutely that pasteurization kills strep

Use Every Precaution.
Until the epidemic leaves our city, it would be a safeguard to
insist on pasteurized milk or pasteurize it yourself. It is simply
heating to 245 degrees for 30 minutes and then cooling immedi

is perfectly pasteurized, the bottles are sterilized with live steam
and then filled and capped automatically. Everything is done by

TO TELEPHONE USERS
All "Florence" Telephone Numbers Will Be
Changed to "Colfax" Tonight
About 540 telephones, whose numbers were formerly desig
nated by the prefix "Florence," will be transferred to the Colfax,
switchboard tonight, and will be "Colfax" numbers beginning Sun
day, October 6.
There are no "Florence" numbers in the October telephone
directory; and if you call for a "Florence" number after tonight,
your call will necessarily be delayed until the operator determines
what the new "Colfax" number is.
The transfer of all "Florence" numbers to the new Colfax
switchboard was determined upon, after a careful investigation
which showed that the service could be more efficiently and more
sconomically handled through the Colfax central office.
