on the farm, there be a room or other suitable place set apart for this work which should not be contaminated by having various other activities performed therein. The standard of quality of the Italian Cheese has been carefully watched from time to time. It is to be desired that the domestic consumption of cheese be increased to a large extent, not only because of the character and amount of nutriment contained therein, but also because there are few forms into which farm and dairy products can be converted so easily and so compactly at so little expense. The manufacture of cheese, moreover, is an excellent method of taking care of a certain amount of surplus milk from time to time, thereby affording the farmer an opportunity of disposing of such milk to an economic advantage as otherwise much of the nutritive value of this milk would be lost and a corresponding large economic waste experienced. It is heartily recommended that not only farmers but the consuming public as well, take up the matter of cheese manufacture and consumption more seriously and more intently.
The people of this country are being taught as never before the relative value of foods and the function which they perform. This means that people will, in time, pay some attention, when purchasing foods, to their food value as well as to their palatability. Already many people have learned that dairy products will take the place of a portion of their meat diet and that they are as well nourished. In many cases the eating of less meat has been beneficial, especially to persons following sedentary occupations.
This department stands ready and willing to do all in its power to encourage and further the growth of this comparatively new industry along proper and legitimate lines.
INSPECTIONS OF STORES, BAKERIES,
RESTAURANTS, AND HOTELS.
The increasing large nụmber and variety of stores and restaurants in the growing populations of our larger cities, brings to the front more seriously their supervision and
control. It has been found that the sanitary conditions of such stores, and the various forms of impositions practiced by the owners upon the unsuspecting public, cannot be passed over lightly or accepted as among the necessary evils of modern community life. Whatever sanitary conditions were found inimical to public health and safety, were brought to the attention of local health officials,
It has not been such a simple matter, however, to keep under control, the great variety of impositions in actual practice. There is, perhaps, a natural tendency on the part of some storekeepers to keep within the letter of the law without actually complying with its obvious purposes. For instance, the laws regarding the sale of such articles as tub butter, renovated butter, cold storage eggs, etc., demand that these articles be offered for sale in an absolutely definite and specific way, so that in the minds of the purchasers, there shall be left no doubt, whatever, as to the exact nature or character of the article to be bought. The wholo intent of these laws is to protect the consumer against fraud. It would appear that every fair-minded merchant should appreciate the wisdom of observing the various food statutes for the preservation of his own character and reputation if for no other reason yet it has been frequently found that however willing such storekeeper may be to abide by the statutes, openly and above board, they have been induced to use subterfuges and camouflages of one form or another, simply because a certain element of the purchasing public display a false pride in preferring not to be told or have it known that they are buying cold storage or "made-over” articles of various kinds. Thus, to a certain extent, it seems that the public encourages the storekeeper in his dissimulation of the true character of certain articles. Why is it that "renovated butter" and "cold storage eggs" should be tabooed as indicative of something to be kept in the dark and apart from one's friends and acquaintances, is beyond sensible comprehension. The encouragement of the artificial stigma
