Department lay. ' particular stress
upon pasteurization of milk as a pre
caution against disease, something
which milk dealers should take to
heart and head. Regarding that
feature of the dairy business the De
Safety Through Pattauriiation
Pasteurizing, or heating milk to a
certain temperature, kills the bac
teria which sometimes cause disease
in people and also cause the milk
to go sour, etc. Diseasecausing
bacteria aren't present in the milk
when it comes fresh from the cow
unless the cow herself is diseased.
But they get in from other sources,
such as contaminated water in
which the milk utensils are washed.
Don't take a chance.
Never use galvanized iron pails
for milking because the acids in 1
milk act on this metal and they're
also hard to clean. Avoid wood and
other porous buckets, too. Dairy
utensil, should always be made of
material that is non-absorbent, and
cleaned easily, and not readily af
fected by milk. Buckets made of
sheet metal, heavily tinned, are sat
isfactorybut be sure the tinning
Is always in good condition. Rusty
utensils give a bad flavor to milk.
More Work for tha Cow
The big increase in butter pro
duction is explained by increases in
population and per capita consum-
tion. In 1918 the average consum
Inn nf hiittjir war nnr.nn in
United States, was 14 pounds. In I
1925 this had increased to 17
pounds. Cheese consumption in
creased during the same period also,
from 3 poundH to i-M pounds per
capita, and ice cream from a little
over two gallons to almost three
gallons per individual. There was a
very large Increase In per capita con
tnimption of milk. It jumpted from
4J gallons in 1918 to 64 in 1926.

Private sal. at Portland, Oregon
on January 25. These wools had
been previously offered at a sale
held in December but were with
drawn at that time because
factory bids were not offered.
Fourteen growers were interested
in the wools and prices received
were from 30c to 33'4c per pound
f. o. b. Portland. The lots were
largely cross-bred wools, the quarter
blood shrinking about 50. the
three-eighths blood about 54 and
the half blood about , 60. The
clean price basis ranged from' 63c
for the clip, running mainly quarter
blood to about 97c for the fine
wool. , On the whole, values re
ceived were about 10 less than
prices paid for the portion of the
pool told in December.
Expenses for freight, storage, In
surance and interest already paid
by the growers amount to about 5c
per pound,- leaving prises net to the
growers at from 35c to 30c per
pound. These, while not entirely
satisfactory to the growers, are
pretty well in line with prices act
ually being paid in Boston and indi
cate the general downward trend of
the wool market during most of the
Eastern mills are opening their
lines of heavy-weight cloth at about
8 below prices of a year ago and
it is hoped that these openings of
fall lines of clothing will permit
mills to take up the fine wools still
remaining on the market.

from his letter show:
