It comes closest to being a "perfect" food, and a person could live on it for a long time. I£ he grew tired of a liquid diet, he could turn some of his milk into cheese. He also could make another solid food -- butter -- but most of us wouldn't care about eating butter if we had no bread to put it on! A cream separator at work. It divides the c r e a m and the skimmed milk. Still another solid which can be taken from milk is a special kind of sugar. A quart of milk contains more than an ounce and a half of milk sugar. Another name for miik sugar is "lactose." There is fat in milk--an average of about an ounce and one- fourth to a quart. The fat is made up of tiny bits known as "globules." Nearly all of the fat rises with the cream. " Each quart of milk has just about one ounce of protein, a body-building food. The protein has the special name of "casein," pronounced "kay-see-in," with accent on the "kay." It is good as a food, and also may be taken from the milk and used in a numer of ways. Combs, rims for eyeglasses, billiard balls and fountain pen barrels are among the things sometimes made from the casein of milk. It also goes into certain kinds o£ glue and paint. .One trouble with milk is that it makes a good home for the tiny plants known as "bacteria." They are so smal that thousands of them could rest on the head of a pin. Most bacteria found in milk are not harmful, but some kinds are. They may cause such an illness as scarlet fever or typhoid. A cow which drinks water containing typhoid germ may pass the same kind of germ to people who drink the milk. Because of such danger, People who handle milk should keep it as clean as possible. Such care will help a great deal, but is not enough to make the milk safe in every way. If milk is boiled, the bacteria or germs can be killed. Boiled milk has fine food value, but many persons do not like the taste. That is why the work of Pasteur is so important. He found a way to kill the dangerous germs by heating milk without bringing it to the boiling point. This process is known as "pasteurizing," and it does little, if any, harm to the good taste of milk. When you buy milk with the word "pasteurized" on the bottle or cap, it means the milk has been treated by the method of Pasteur. The housewife should take pains to keep milk clean and cold. The refrigerator is the proper place for it except when it is being served. (For General Interest section of your scrapbook.)

Then, with a scream, she started running down to the river bank, toward the place where he had disappeared. A dozen men had sprung into the water. She could see them milling about, searching. Other men were shouting. The place was a bustle of frantic activity and nobody seemed to see her or pay her the slighest attention. Minutes dragged by while she stood there, shivering, minutes that seemed eternal. Then finally there was a new note in the shouting, and one o£ the diving men came above the water, a dark, limp figure in his arms. He was unconscious, Lona saw, his head lolling as they pulled him ashore. Roughly they pushed her aside when she tried to get to him, and a perspiring foreman began the tiring task of applying artificial respiration. "But I'm his wife!" she managed to sob out, and the rough hands on her arm grew more gentle and they allowed her to stand close by and watch. "Is he bad?" she asked, between white lips, and the pitying'looks sent her way answered her better than words. "Why doesn't somebody get doctor?" she demanded. "And an ambulance? He's got to get to a hospital!" "They'll be here," one of the waiting men assured her "They've been called. We've got to get him breathing first. That's the important thing . . . " Got to get him breathing! The words struck terror to her already shocked mind. Get him breathing --Jim! That was her Jim stretchec out there with that grunting man working over him so brutally. His head was bleeding from an ugly gash, and he looked strange and wild. The burly foreman was stil working over him methodically when the clanging ambulance arrived and spilled a white-clothed attendant and a grave-faced doctor on to the scene. Followed another long interval when it seemed to Lona that she must scream with the suspense. Then, finally, a" new tension gripped the crowded men "He's coming around," one ol them assured her, peering over the doctor's shoulder. "He's, stirring "Is he all right?" Lona begged the doctor, uselessly. "Is he going to be all right?" The doctor murmured something about getting him to the hospital, and they lifted him into the gaping ambulance as if he were a sack. Someone boosted I.ona up the steps and she was beside him at last. "His head's been cracked. Looks like a fracture," the doctor told her, matter-of-factly. "We'll see what we can do." "Oh, you must save him!" she heard herself sobbing and the doctor's kindly hand left Jim's wrist to go to her heaving shoulder. "There now," he comforted "We'll bring him around." He lay still as death through that endless ride. Thanks to the foreman's untiring efforts he was breathing, but that seemed to be about all. His face was deathly pale except where it was streakec with blood from the ugly bruise cut on the side of his head. Fearfully, she tried to wipe the blood away, hoping for some sign of recognition. What if he should-leave her like that, without eve knowing her again! He still was unconscious when they bundled him into the hos pital elevator and wheeled him ii to the shining white room tha smelled of disinfectants. They closed the doors on her then, ant she was left to wait for wha seemed endless hours. Only tht hurrying feet oE the busy nurse punctuated the long silence. Th two workmen who had accom panied her to the hospital per suaded her, with uncouth gentle ness, to sit down, in an easy chai in the little coop of a sitting room provided for relatives. After tha they left her alone, sitting to gether on the other* side of th room, sending pitying glances he way and twirling their caps un easily. "It will be hours before comes to," the doctor told when the operating room opened finally, and they wheeled the long, stilled form down the corridor again. "I'd home it I were you, and eat. Yo can do nothing here, and you mu: keep up your strength." But she shook her heart. "I must be here when he wakes she said.
