: JACOB LENKERJEAD AT 85
Once Prominent Resident of Upper
' End of County Expires This Morn
ing in Almshouse
The. death of Jacob Lenker in the
i Dauphin county almshouse at 5 o'clock
this morning, took away from that in
stitution one of its oldest inmates and
incidentally a man who ago, was
one of the most prominent in the up
per end of Dauphin county.
Mr. I itnker was close to 85 years!
t old. His ileat li was due to weakness
I | incident to his old age. He lfad been
;] bedfast but a short time prior to his j
J death. Mr. Lenker seldom complained j
i of feeling ill anil frequently remarked j
' j that he was "yet a young man." !
"! Mr. Lenker was the father-in-law of
' Jacob J. Coleman, of Gratz, a former
member of and president of the Board
j i of Directors of the Poor of Dauphin
county and was committed to the home
I for the indigent on April 19, 1911.
J i While at the almshouse Mr. Lenker
1 ; made many friends among whom was |
' jS. F. Barber, the steward. Mr. Barber j
became attached to the old man "be-1
cause of his friendly disposition" and [
visited him as much as twice a day.
Mr. Lenker was among the dozen or
more patients who were put upon a
[ | special diet at the suggestion of the
I, almshouse physician. A nephew, who
' i was called to Mr. Lenker'a bedside
-1 yesterday, to-day informed the county
> I authorities that the body will be taken
' j for burial by relatives.

Stat# Health Commissioner Gives Di
rections That Can Be Followed By
Any Housewife—Dr. Munce In
vestigating In Pittsburgh
Dr. Munce, Assistant State Veter
inarian, left for Pittsburgh, last night,
and to-day is investigating conditions
in the stockyards in that city to ascer
tain whether the measures taken tc
eradicate the foot and mouth disease,
tho prevalence of which led to State
wide quarantine on cattle, are boiug
effectively carried out. No new casos
of the disease were reported to-day.
In view of the fact that the disease
may infect the dairy herds of the
State, thereby causing danger of the
transference of the disease from in
fested animals to human beings through
milk, Dr. Samuel G. Dixon, State
Health Commissioner, has issued the
Ihe foot and mouth disease which
is known to the medical world as
aphthous fever is highly infectious in
cattle and manifests itself by a rising
temperature and the appearance of
blisters on tho mucus membrane of the
mouth, tongue and nose. Tho blisters
are followed ulcers; digestive dis
turbances are also common. Death
seldom occurs in human beings.
As a matter of protection against
the possibility of infection the use of
raw milk may bo discontinued. A safe
ty factor is to pasteurize the milk.
Following is a simple method which
may be used.
"Place a saueer in a pail seven or
eight inches in diameter ami about the
same height. Set the milk bottle on
this. Remove the paper cap from tho
milk bottle. Pour in the pail a suf
ficient quantity of luke warm water
to half cover the bottle. Watch the
water and as soa» as it has boiled
twenty minutes, remove the bottle of
milk and allow it to cool slowly. Never
place the milk immediately upon the
ice or the bottle may break. Soal the
bottle with a new cap, a supply of
which you can obtain from the milk
man, and place the milk bottle where
it will remain at 40 to 50 degrees
| temperature. It must be kept cool end
| clean if it is to remain safe for use.
"If the milk supply is not received
| bottled secure a bottle of the same
size and cork after sterilization."
Cattle Disease in Schuylkill
By Associated Press,
Pottsville, Pa., Nov. 13.—Four cases
of foot and mouth disease were discov
ered in the southern part of Schuyl

posed to have been contracted through
the purchase of a young bull at an auc
tion sale of Lancaster county cattle
held in this county last week.
