Modern Churning Machine · Old records tell us one way Arab riders were in the custom of churning milk. They put it in bags, which were fastened by cords to the saddle, and dragged the bags along the ground. Butter of one kind or another was used more than 3,000 years ago. Probably it was not solid, for we are told it was "poured" .from the container. In ancient times, butter seems to have been used more as a salve for wounds than as a food. As time went on, better ways of churning were learned. One old- fashioned churn was a wooden container which looked soniethin" like a thin barrel. It had an upright handle which was worked up and down. The container was partly filled with milk or cream and. the person working it had a long, hard task. A better type oE churn was made with a barrel which was set around with a crank. This kind of CHAPTER THIRTY-THHEE A strange man was waiting in the corridor outside Jim's room when Lona reached the hospital the morning after the accident which had sent Jim plunging ofr the bridge into the river bed. He was a kindly-eyed, middle-aged man with the ruddy skin t !i a t comes of a life in the open, and he otfererd Lona a competent looking hand. _ '-I'm Clark Martin, the engineer in charge of the bridge," he told her. "I've come over to see if there's anything we, can do for j Jim. I can't tell you how sorry we ' are to have a thing like this hap- I pen. AH the boys like Jim, you know.'' ''That's kind of you," Lona murmured. "Have you seen Jim? How is he tins morning?" The hospital office girl had been missing from her desk when Lona came through and she had no news. "They wouldn't let me see him " The man shook his head. '-The nurse says he's doing as well as can be expected. She's with him now. It's sort of--tough on you Mrs. Bennett, having a thing like I this happen when you're just--new in town and all. I hope you'll Jet turned "end-over-end.' f--stick to- Modern dairies have power- driven churns.

As knew somethilng he was keeping back from her. '"That's kind of you," she re"'" for lack of anything better It is possible to make butter from whole milk, but t!ie usual way nowadays is to employ only cream. The fatty part of the milk makes the butter, and almost all the fat is in the cream. Separators make it easy for the dairyman to take the cream from the milk. When it is churned, the cream is shaken or jarred, often with paddles. The shaking makes the bits of fat gather together, in that way producing small iumos butter. Then the "buttermilk" of -- » - · - · * v t i * _ U L l L L C A - l l l i U v I S drained away, and the lumps of butter are worked together Tests with certain kinds of churns have shown that butter can be made in as little as three or four minutes. Such butter, however, is not of the best grade Experts say it is better to take a longer time io make butter. Butter can be made from sour cream or from sweet cream Dairymen say they "ripen" cream when they let it turn sour to prepare for butter-making. (For General Interest section of your scrapbook.) .

"We will all visit him as soon as tiic ' doctor allows it." He made a motion to put on his hat, then seemed to think better of it. 'There's a little matter I'd like to talk over with you personally, Mrs. Bennett," he brought out almost apologetically. "I hate to bother you at a time like thi* I was going to ask Jim about 11 but they don't want him disturbed.' He shrugged and readied inside Ins coat pocket, drawing out = letter. '·Yes?' 1 Lona felt her breath coming fast without knowing "I really hale to trouble you with a thing like this, but I sou of tlunk you--ought to know abou- it. \ou see, 1--I received this letter in the morning mail. It's from a detective and he seems to think that maybe Jim--he's looking for a fellow and he--Here you read it!" He thrust the letter at her a« u it were hot." "Someone sent this to you asking about Jim?" Lena's handi were cold, suddenly, her fingers stiff, as she unfolded the paper. ''Dear Mr. Martin," she read. The Western Detective Agency is trying to locate a certain James Rankm. We have reason to believe -that James Bennett, who came into | your employ several weeks bad.. ! may be Rankin. I was in Brighton yesterday and made inquiries which tend to further our belief I was called back to Chicago without getting to see him personally- but I expect to return within two weeks. "If you have any information regarding Bennett which might be useful to us, please forward it to the Western Detective Agency. By so doing you will be serving the ends of justice. We are particularly anxious to know if Bennett has a western background and an engineers training. The affair in which he is wanted ocL-urrcd in the west. "Jack Price, 'Western Detective Agency." "But I--I don't understand this." Lona forced the words through j unwilling lips. "Why should they be hunting Jim?" "I just sort of thought you-ought to know." The engineer's * eyes refused to meet hers. I ,,Ti! BUt il must bc some mistake! i \\ hy. Jim's never been in the ! , west!" The lie came almost in- i voluntarily. "He--he was raised in ! Chicago. And I'm sure he has no I engineer's training. He's never I been to college." Something impelled her to go on recklessly. I "You're sure of that?" Relief 1 showed in Martin's kindly weather-beaten eyes. "Of course. It's ridiculous." She I tried to sound convincing. ! "Then we'll--forget it. I knew j there was nothing in it. of course. | Jim's too fine a fellow, but I--had to ask." He jammed the letter back in his pocket, and readied again for his hat. "I'll keep in touch," he promised. "We'll all come lo tec Jim when he's able. And. in the mean- , tnnc, the best of luck!" j M "Thank you." Lona heard her- ' I self murmuring, her body tensing T itself to sit nonchalantly on her ! u chair until he had gone.
