progress accomplished, Brock came
across a forlorn, staggering figure. It
was Limpy Ted. His face was grimed
and one side of it was bleeding.
"'Why, Limpy!" exclaimed Brock.
"I did it!" croaked Limpy. "You
were good to me, so I got rid of the
"What dynamite?" questioned the
"That I stole from the powder
house. I was going to blow up the
whole plant with it. But after your
kindness to me I was afraid I might
hurt you. So I put temptation out of
the way by dropping the stuff down
that old well. It went off and nearly
caught me "
"Hark!" cried Brock.
A swishing, surging, unfamiliar
sound struck his hearing. He ran
forward to come in sight of the old
well. Straight up in the air fully
eighty feet a great spreading spray
was shooting Limpy Ted had
"struck oil." The dynamite had com-r
pleted the work of the drill, and the
Wiltons were rich.
So rich that they provided for Lim
py Ted comfortably for the rest of
his life. Richer than the Dares even,
and, on a social basis now equal to
that of the woman he loved, Brock
Wilton did not hesitate to ask Eva

WHAT THE SCHOOL CHILD SHOULD EAT
The boy is father to the man, so
runs the old adage, and Uncle Sam,
who believes in raising good crops
and good cattle, is paying a lot of at
tention to the youngsters who have
just started to school the citizens of
the next generation.
And the first thing he has looked
into is the school lunch box he
wants to know what the little citizens
are eating while they are studying
and incidentally playing tag and foot
ball. The midday lunch of the boy
and girl who has to grow and work
at the same time is most important,
so Uncle Sam has turned a whole
section of the National Bureau of
Education on the job and here's what
one of his domestic science teachers
has to say about school lunches:
BY UNCLE SAM.
(Prepared as follows by a food expert
of the U. S. Dep't of Agriculture.)
In preparing the school lunch the
mother should look ahead and plan
to always have on hand besides bread
and butter, a vegetable, or a fruit,
and something sweet for the lunch
If milk or stew is provided at the
school this supplies the protein-rich
food and also the needed liquid. Let
us suppose a potato soup is served
at the school. If made with undilut
ed milk and served in sufficient quan
tity, it may be considered as satis
fying the muscle-building require
ment. A lettuce sandwich and a fig,
date, or prune sandwich, an apple,
and a piece of cake, or rather that
article dear to the heart of childhood,
a small frosted cake, would make a
dainty and reasonably well balanced
A cup of cottage cheese, a slice of
meat, meat or fish sandwiches, the
yolks of eggs seasoned and spread
between slices of bread and butter, or
a cup custard, are possible ways of
serving the necessary starch element.
Raw prunes, baked apples, apple
sauce, stewed dried fruits, or fresh
fruits satisfy the demand for foods.
The sweets may be in the form of
plain cake, cookies, sweet chocolate,
or pure candy.
We would remind those who think
that this meal is oversweet that it is
better to have it oversweet than over
fat. Sugar is rapidly absorbed while
fat is the last substance to leave the
