SUMMARY.

The whole number of complaints entered by the State Board of Health in the courts of the Commonwealth against parties for violation of the acts relating to the adulteration of food and drugs was 150, of which number 135, or 90 per cent., were convicted. Thirteen were discharged, either in the lower or the upper courts, and 2 left the State before the cases came to

trial.

Of the foregoing cases, 49 were for violation of the laws relating to milk adulteration, of which number 37 resulted in conviction. There were 3 cases under the oleomargarine laws, all of which resulted in conviction. There were also 93 complaints for fraudulent sales of other kinds of food, in all of which except two the parties were convicted, the two exceptions being in the cases of two parties who had left the State before the cases could come to trial.

The articles of food other than milk embraced in the foregoing list were as follows:

Molasses, 5 cases; coffee, 28; pepper, 16; maple syrup, 6; maple sugar, 1; cream of tartar, 26; vinegar, 2; lard, 1; honey, 3; mustard, 2; cloves, 1; French peas, 1.

In a large number of cases appeals were made by the defendants, but in nearly all of these the defendants paid the fines which had been imposed, before the cases were called for trial.

In one case only out of all which have been decided in the superior courts, the decision of the lower court was reversed by the upper court.

The total solids in the samples of milk upon which complaints were founded were as follows, in the case of those complaints in which the records were noted :
