Franklin Institute Will Dispense
Five Gallons Daily.

Poor families living in the tenement district of which the Franklin institute is the center, will have an opportunity to secure pure, wholesome milk at a minimum of expense after Tuesday morning of this week. A pure milk dispensary will be established at the institute under the direction of the superintendent, J. T. Chafin, and arrangements will be made to distribute the milk in quart quantities according to the needs of the various families.

A dairy company has agreed to donate five gallons of milk a day to the institute, and this milk is of the highest quality. The milk will be syphoned into sterilized quart bottles, and these will be sold for 1, 2, 3 and 6 cents each, according to the families' ability to pay for them. Families unable to pay 1 cent a bottle will be given the milk free.
