The report of the Massachusetts
board o f health, recently made public,
contains several features o f interest to
dairymen. The board lias charge of
the inspection of food and drugs and
divides with the dairy bureau the in
spection o f milk and dairy products.
During tlic month o f December the
board examined 337 samples of milk,
o f which 131 were adulterated or va
ried from the legal standard. In most
cases the board lias contented itself by
sending warnings to the sellers whose
milk fell below the standard, as only
three onsos were taken to court, result
ing in two convictions and one dis
charge. The total per cent o f solids in
samples o f milk upon which these
cnso3 were entered was 3.34, 8.34, 0.25,
O f forty-seven samples o f butter an
alyzed two were found to be adulter
ated, but no casos seem to have been
taken to court. Only one sample out o f
seventeen lots of cheese was found be
low legal quality.

Dairying has beeh revolutionized
during the last few years.
hand cream separator has done
more toward modernizing this indus
try than any other influence. W ith
in the last three years the hand
separator has come to be more of a
fixture in the dairy farmhouse than
the sewing machine. T h e separa
tor is here to stay, and the possibili
ties it has created for this region in
the way of dairy development are
T h e one point above all others
that makes the hand separator so
effective is the fact that the warm
milk can be fed to calves, while
the cream— chief source of revenue
— can be shipped in first class con
dition to bring the highest prices
now being paid for butter fat.
Adds Value to Farm
Thousands of dollars will be add
ed to the value of each good dairy
farm in this region during the next
ten or twenty years, and it will be
the hand cream separator which will
do it, If the hand separator makes
it possible for you to sell $500 or
$1,000 worth of cream from a herd
of eight or ten cows during the
year, and enables you to raise calves
which you can market for as high a
price as what you got for your calves
before, is it not increasing the value
of your farm?
T h e hand separator conquers bad
road conditions, makes it possible
to get the most money from crops,
simplifies dairying, abolishes the
quality of the product, pays for it
self in what it saves, and, if a high
grade one, lasts year in and year out
as a permanent labor-saving fixture.
