Before He Can Experiment on Cows
for Tuberculosis.

"Before tests can be made to determine the prevalence of tuberculosis in cows," said A. C. Wright, city milk inspector, yesterday, "it will be necesary for my department to have an appropriation with which to buy the baccilus with which to make experiments. I have no funds for such purposes. They will have to come through the board of health and if the board meets Monday I will make a request for an appropriation.

"For the past two or three days with Dr. Lloyd Champlain, veterinarian of the pure food commission, I have been making inspections of the hundreds of dairies within the limits of the city and we detected some very suspiciuos appearances among many cows. I am not prepared to say that this was caused by the presence of tuberculosis."
