Sometimes it has been necessary to enforce orders with apparent severity, but every concessionaire and exhibitor will recognise that he has no better friend than a sanitary officer who performs his duties in a fearless manner.
To show how alert one must be, several days ago the sanitary officer seized several phosphate bottles with metal tops, and destroyed them. They were being used by two independent drink-stand concessionaires. Only glass and porcelain tops are allowed on phosphate bottles, because the gases of the phosphate corrode the metal and breed disease. Dr. Wilson inspects daily all drink-dispensing and food-selling booths, and it is asserted that there is not one thing to eat or drink sold on the grounds that is in any way unclean, if rigid inspection can prevent it.
