ROCHESTER DEMOCRAT AND CHRONICLE. THURSDAY, AUGUST 23. 1917. 17 NO ADULTERATION OF CHEESE FOUND BY STATE AGENTS Annual Inspection of Factories Completed. STANDARD PRODUCT DESIRED Expert from State Department of Agriculture Shows Cheese Makers How to Effect This Demonstrations of TJp-to-Date Methods Qiven An inspection of the numcroux ttinall cheee factories in Monroe and other counties in Western New York, to learn what the sanitary Cuuditions in them are and to determine what percentage of moisture their products contain, has been completed by Rouiaine A. French, deputy state commissioner of agriculture, and eight of his assistants. The Inspection, which is made annually, has a new significance this year because of an amendment to the agriculture laws by the last legislature providing that-ordinary cheese may contain a maximum of 39 per cent, of moisture. Cheese containing more than that is deemed adulterated. Mr. French says that in not one of the several hundred factories inspected in ilonroe and the ten counties about it was a case of adulteration established. The samples taken from a large number of factories contained a negligible amount of moisture. A good share of the cheese eaten in this city is made in Western New York, especially in Livingston, Steuben, Schuyler, Chemung and Wyoming counties. It is commonly known ni "store" or American cheese. It is selling in groceries at from 25 to 28 cents a pound, prices that make it profitable for manufacturers to adulterate it by leaving too much water in it. Mr. French will continue his vigilance, but he expresses confidence that the manufacturers on the whole are law-abiding. Objects to Inspection. The inspection has a two-fold effect. The principal purpose is to , instruct cheese makers in methods employed in the most modern factories, that a uniform quality of cheese may be placed on the market. Accompanying Mr. French and his assistants on the tour of inspection was Clayton It. Owens, a expert In the employ of the state, who gave demonstrations of cheese making in all the factories visited. According to Mr. French, no two factories in Western New York to-day turn out the same quality of cheese. Each maker has ideas of his own. The State department of Agriculture takes the position that a uniform grade would be a benefit to the industry. For a number of years cheese made in New York was recognized as standard for the United States. It brought the highest prices for its kind. In recent years, however, cheese made in Wisconsin has been regarded as superior to the New York prodwt and has brought hign-er prices. Charles 8. Wilson, commissioner of agriculture,' has tried for the past year to improve conditions in the cheese factories, to restore the industry in the tate to its former place. Milk in Factories Tested. Milk that is found in the cheese factories is tested for adulteration and for Impurities. Two separate tests are made by the agents. Several cases of adulteration have been discovered. Mr. French has filed complaints with Attorney-General Merton E. Iewis, and his office will prosecute the offenders. Mr. Owen said that cheese manufacturers face difficult problems in hot weather. "Much of the milk shipped to them sours quickly because it is not properly cared for," he said. "My demonstrations are designed to help the manufacturers solve their problems. Often milk becomes tainted. Occasionally we find that the wrong bacteria work in cheese, causing the finished article to be gaseous. I believe that while excellent progress has been made during the last lear in cheese factories, both in "point of sanitation and in the quality of the article produced, there is still room for much improvement. "Cheese is a valuable food. Its properties considered, it is one of the cheapest foods on the market, to-day. These cheese inspections and demonstrations are of great importance to the consumer?. When cheese sold for 10 cents a pound a little moisture more or less did not mean much injustice to the consumer, but now adulteration means that the public is losing a good deal. Conditions Generally Good. "Oenerally speaking, we have found excellent conditions in the cheese factories. The manufacturers welcome the instruction. Many of them have willing-. H- discarded antiquated methods and adopted the modern ones recommended by the department. "I believe that as the result of the department's inspection a hotter grade of cheese will be offered in Rochester. A spirit of co-operation has been shown by e manufacturers, which tends to insure Perraanmt results. As a part of our ""ork the agents go to the larger dairy oi stock farms and give lectures on cleanliness. Sometimes a demonstration s given at the farms. "Most of the cheese factories in this Part , fcw state are very small, but one r two nave outputs of several thousand Pounds daily. In several factories domes-Swiss theese is made. One factor?- in .yoming county makes a domestic Ital-540 brand. hen our department succeeds in vin niilk that is used by cheese faeces as pure as that .hiped to the "j. a Jong step will be made toward PIONEERS' PICRIC IS TO BEHELD TO-MY Committee Plans for Many Thousand. . .

Employees of the Shongo Construction Company working in the river bed under the Main street east bridge yesterday discovered the cause of the undermining of the pavement in Main street -east at Front street a year ago. The old sewer in. Main street east made an aperature in the abutment about three by four feet in sie. .When the old newer was abandoned, the opening was not securely blocked and the force of the current in the freshets gradually opened it up allowing the water to undermine the pavement. In additioil to this, two other leaks in the abutment i were found a little to the south of the sewer opening. The three holes in the abutment will be securely built up with cement within a few days so that there can be no further damage to the roadway. The Shongo Construction Company has completed the trestle from the Lehich Valley Railroad tracks to the western section of the river excavation and the big steam shovels have been started. It is expected that trains will be carrying stone out of the western section early next week. RETIRING FIREMEN HONORED C. T. TJ. Contest This Evening. Th Twelfth Ward W. C. T.
