Tho American dmbassy at Moxlco

until thp first Tuesday In March. zatlon in tho city Is dosirous of fur
othor hand, ho produced front his
latest medical reports, tho tact that
pastourlzcd milk was better than raw
milk for pcoplo with poor digestion.
Again in a government roport on
sato milk, by Earnest A. Sweet. I find
tho following suggestiens: "It is
entlroly feasible for any city to pro
toct In a measure tho lives of its bab
ies, by simple regulations of its milk
supply." Again, a number of Amer
lean cities require that all milk shall
bo pasteurized, so that largo plants
whero this process Is performed are
common." Again, "milk which has
been adaquately pastourlzod is there
fore to bo regarded as the safost milk
which ono can consume."
On pago 23 ot tho abovo report I
find tho following which might an-
Iwor the objections of some. "Tho
tnsto nnd appearance ot pastourizad
milk dirrors little from thoso of un
treated milk." For the bonoftt of
thoso who may say "I know better
than that, tor I havo tasted pasteur
ized milk," I will say that In all prob
abilities tho milk you tasted was rais
ed to a higher tomporature than 145
degrees. If tho milk Is heated much
warmer than that it becomes a scald
ed milk and the flavor is changed.
In conclusion I wish to say that
yonr present milk producers aro rq
llablo mon who have ontered into an
agreement with tho distributor of
milk to furnish a bottor milk than
has over boen placed on tho market
before Thoy aro taking ovory pro
cautionary measuro posslblo, but
thoy, and all othor reasonable per
sons, know that without pasteuriza
tion milk is not entirely safe, They

part' and you are not treating thorn

and evory other milk dealer make

As to the price of milk tho produc
