It wasn't a real cow, but it turned water and milk powder into a drink which was spoken o£ as "milk." Milk powder can be made by heating milk, also by drying it. Sometimes rich, creamy milk is turned into powder, but powder from skimmed milk will stay in good condition for a longer time. When milk powder is well mixed with water, it may taste almost as , good as fresh milk. Huge cream containers in a large dairy. We may think of milk powder as a modern idea, but something . Jike it was made in Asia long ago Marco Polo, who lived before Columbus, told this about the Tartars of Asia: « ' IAS a {ood suPPly for long- (rips, they prepare milk in this way: They boil the milk, and skim off the rich, creamy part when it rises lo the top, and put it aside for butler. Then they place the rest of (he milk in the stm to dry. "When they start on a journey, they take with (hem 10 pounds (of the dried milk) for each man. Every morning, they put one-half pound in a leather bottle, with as much water as is needed. By the motion of ridinjr the contents (of the leather bottle) are given strong shaking, and a thin por- , n porridge is made. On this porridge they make their dinner." Today we have a special kind of milk powder known as malted - f-· ~ * . n u w n els I I l r t l l e milk. Besides dried milk, it contains malted barley and wheat flour. The most common way of saving milk for a long time is by condensing it. The-making of condensed or "evaporated" milk is a big industry. Several kinds of machines are used to condense the milk. One Kind has a tank about 10 feet high from which much of the air has been pumped. Milk is drawn from a_ hot well," and goes through a pipe into the tank. Hot coils inside the tank heat the milk to the boiling point. Where there is a vacuum, milk or any other liquid will boil at a much lower point. In this case the boiling point is only 130 degrees above zero Fahrenheit. A great deali of splashing and spraying takes place inside the tank. The water vapor is drawn away through another pipe At last the milk loses enough water to be called "condensed." Milk treated in this way is condensed, but the common custom is to call it "evaporated." What ve usually speak of as "condensed milk" is sweetened with sugar.

Lona accosted the doctor with anxious inquiry in her eyes. "He's out of his head," she faltered, but the doctor gave a reassuring pat on the back. "Nasty fall," he conceded. "But he 1! come around. Naturally he's a little fuddled. You look as if you needed some sleep yours ell young lady. Better go home and rest." "But are you s u r e he's--all right?" "Just you go home and forget about him until morning. Stop worrying. It will come out all nght." His voice was heartily confident, and she allowed herself, tiredly, to be convinced. You'll call me if--anything happens?" She still felt the need of reassurance. "Of course. But nothing will happen." The doctor patted her shoulder again. "You're to go home," he said, in mock sternness. "Doctor's orders." In spite ot her fears she had to smile at his manner, and a load seemed to lift from her shoulders is she turned away, leaving her !11rf/?*»T^lxf +?mj +« 41 · _ · -i. . suddenly tired to the near exhaustion. point of Dinah' and Mrs. Morriss ' w e r e waiting up anxiously when she arrived home. One look at her tired face and Mrs. Morriss bustled her into her own easy chair, pushing a footstool beneath her feet "Not a word until you've had some hot tea," she ordered. "I'll bring in a tray." She bustled out to the kitchen ind Lona rested her head on the chair cushions gratefully "Is he--all right?" Dinah managed to whisper, · despite her mother's order. "Jim's going to be all right, isn't he?" Lona n o d d e d . "The doctor thinks so--oh, Dinah!" She held out her arms to the crippled girl suddenly feeling the need of comfort. "H he had died," she sobbed I couldn't have stood it if he had died! You don't know" S h e broke off, and the sobs she had kept back all through that long vigil m 1he hospital came now, unchecked. "Now, now!" Mrs. Morriss chil- ed. gently, as she bustled back with a tray bearing a steaming cup of tea and a plate of thin toast. "You'll feel better when you've eaten. You need something hot." She warned Dinah back with a glance, and began fussing over Lona, putting a pillow to her back steadying the tray on her trembling knees. Like a mother would fuss over her Lona thought. The mother she had never had. A sudden loneliness welled up within her, and she almost choked over her bile o£ toast. "You'll have to excuse me," she said. "I've been so--worried . . And you--you're so good--" She broke off, and Mrs. Morriss wisely pretended not to see the tears that sjll blinded her. "We heard about the accident nght away," she told Lona, mat- ter-of-faclly. "Dinah wanted to come to the hospital, but I knew there was no use. I've been telephoning, though, and the nurse says Jim is doing fine. There's nothing to worry about, my dear" "he smiled, and Lona, felt better. 'I think it's' wonderful, Jim having saved i'nat man's life the way he did." Dinah's blue eyes were round and bright. "At the risk of his own. It was--heroic." "But how did you know about all that?" Lona asked her, wondering, "The Brighton News reporter came right out as soon as it happened. He didn't know you were down at the bridge and he wanted to ^ get to you first with the news "A reporter! There was a're- porter here?" All Lena's old fears came Hooding back. "You mean this will be in the papers?" "Why of course. Jim's a hero Didn't you know that? It'll be the Deadlines in the Brighton News tomorrow night, Ellis Lanforth-- ne's the reporter--said he was going to bring up a camera and take your picture, if he can find you in And he wants a picture o£ Jim, 'oo, if you have one--" "No, no! He can't!" Lona pushed bock her tray so sharply the tea spilled on Mrs. Morriss' newly- cleaned rug. "He mustn't!" she insisted. Her mind was racing. She could have no interview with a reporter, even a small-town reporter like this uangforth. If she got one on her trail, he might recognize her, and 30 digging into the files--rake up ihat old story all over again. Sveryone here in Brighton would now. "Jim wouldn't want it. He nates publicity. He punched a reporter once who tried to take his picture. He'd be angry--" She stopped short, remembering, suddenly, the detective who had been icre this afternoon. In the con- 'usion of the accident, and her terror for Jim, she had forgotten the reason that had sent her pell-mell down to the bridge just in time to ·=ee Jim fall. It came flooding back tocher now with new meaning. "You must keep the newspapers away from us," she begged, suddenly, of Mrs. Morriss. "This reporter is a friend of yours, you say? Tell him we both hate having our pictures taken, that we don't want our names in the paper. It would make Jim furious! You don't know how--funpy he is, that way." Dinah was looking at her curi- . ously, she realized, and checked her outburst with an effort.

Mrs. Morriss was looking at her in surprise. "Why, my dear." the older woman said, soothingly. "You mustn't let yourself get so excited. After all. you can't keep the paper from printing a story as big as this. And there's nothing shameful in having a hero for a husband. You should be proud." Lona laughed, R nervous, high- pitched laugh that sounded ill at ease. "T suppose ymi're right/' she conceded, trying to pass nff her concern lightly. "It's just that I-that Jim would hate having his picture or mine on the front page. There's something rather--undignified, about it, don't you think?" Mrs. iUorrifs nodded. 'T can see how you feel about the picture?." , she conceded, with her motherly i smile. "I'd hate to see my own ' picture on the front page, no matter what had happened. Or Dinah's, either!" She paused, and the smile on t-ona's lips grew genuine, tt was hard to think of placid Mrs. Morriss and little sparkling Dinah ever breaking into the front page news. The sort of front, page neu-s siic, Lona, knew so well. 'Til (ry and persuade Ellis I.angforih to forget the piclure?," Mrs. Moriss went on. "But I'm afraid he'll insist upon getting his story on the accident. It's too big to pass up--a thing like that happening right here in Brighton." "Will you talk to him for me, Mrs. Morriss?" If the man didn't see her, perhaps he wouldn't place her, Lona was thinking, "I'm afraid I'm going to be too busy and too tired to ex-en think about reporters. It would help if you would take care of that part ot things for me." "Of course t will, my dear." The voice was motherly. "I'll call him up the first thing in the morning and tell him 1o come and see me at the library. I'll give him the whole story. You're not to worry any more." f You arc so Koort."
