Year te Insure Healthful MILK MANY of us think of milk in terms of bottles en our doorstep or merely "something te drink." But seldom de we real ize the constant watchful ness that is necessary te insure that the milk we drink is absolutely pure and healthful. Abbotts Laboratory Control starts right at the farm where the milk is produced and ends when ABBOTTS "A" MILK reaches your doorstep in the morning. We carefully scrutinize the milk at its source. Each supply is given a laboratory test at the re ceiving station. Then it is rushed into our large city plant, where every act. of clari fying, pasteurizing and bottling is under the strict supervision of our main laboratory. Abbotts a "K Milk This laboratory is under the personal direction of our own bacteriologist, who daily su per vises examinations of ABBOTTS "A" MILK. A member of his staff even in spects each piece of equip ment every day after its regu lar sterilization, just te make sure. Te exercise and maintain this "laboratory control" costs us many thousands of dollars each year. And this is done te protect you. We would like te leave a bottle of ABBOTTS "A" MTXK en your doorstep to morrow. A phone call te Baring 0205 will bring it.

He had stepped in te win the Wyoming cousin's confidence In order that he might preve nn nssct rather thnn n liability te his cause. The oil broker had readily agreed te protect Esther McLean from publicity, but the reason for his forbearance wns quite plain new. Hn had been protect ing himself, net her. The man's relation te Esther proved him selfish and without principle. He had .been willing te let hW dead uncle bear the odium of his misdeed. Yet be neath the surface of his cold mnnner James was probably swept by heady passions. His leve for Phyllis Harrltnan had carrlM him beyond prudence, be yond honor. He had duped the uncle whose geed-will he had carefully fos fes tered for many years, and nt the hour of his uncle's death he had been due te reap the whirlwind. The problem sifted down te two fac tors. One wns the time clement. The ether was the tempcrnment of James. A man may be unprincipled nnd yet draw the line at murder. He may be a seducer nnd still lack the courage and the cowardice for a cold-blooded killing. Klrby had studied Iris cousin, but the man 'was mere or less of a sphinx te him.

The na tives of the Seuth Sea Island where her father is a missionary, call her "the down pearl." A man sophisti cated in the sub tleties of women and the ways of the Orient says she is a fire-opal.

Spurlock, conscience ridden, escaped from the States with a detective en his heels even te the Malay Archipelago, desirous of literary fame, feels that she has the opalescent fires which he wishes te flame out in his fiction. They meet in Canten. He Is fleeing from justice, yet always with him is n New England conscience. She Is striking for America, te cscnpe the loveless life and dreary environment which go with her cold, hard father en his mission Isle. Strange romance brings them to gether, en the ragged edge of things and places, where men go te forget or te be forgotten. Strange is their mar riage, tee, for its responsibilities mean nothing te her unsophisticated mind, and she craves only cpmpanlesblp, while he,, net loving her, yet wishes te show his gratitude for her nursing and her inspiration. 'Hew love comes is told very vividly by Mr. MnsOrath in this singularly engrossing story. lluth is literally n "pearl." lleddy's "crime" hns been exaggerated, but the New England con science has done him no harm, A spinster aunt forgives nnd aids in a new life. Bagged edges of life arc knit to gether. While primarily a romance, a tole of adventure, "The Ragged Edge" has plausible psychology and considerable literary distinction. It's exciting and it's readable. Beeks of Many Sorts Ip "Simen Called Peter' ,(E. P. Dutten & Ce.), the Rev. Rebert Kcnblc hns written what is well called nn out spoken love ttery. The theme of this powerfully conceived nnd artisti cally presented novel is that of an Knglish war padre who gees among An Outtpehen Leve Story publicans nnd sinners te find Ged nnd Ids own soul. The ma terial is slinplu enough the experiences, reactions nnd mutual relations of Peter, nn Anslican chaplain, from a fashion able Londen church, and Julie, a nurse from Seuth Africa, beautiful, piquant, irresistibly human, but with a per per viislve sense of the divine. His motto is service, hers sacrifice, and tn the long run, after anxious futilities, he sees the way te crvlce, while she, eager for enjoyment of love nnd net satinted by what of it has come tn her. none the less makes the sacrifice of nil that is precious te her. Julie sacrifices vir ginity for the bake of leve and then for the sake of greater love forgoes love itself. She outlaws herself from tlis moral cede, casting aside the conven tions for which the cares little, te make Peter the mnn happier, and then te make Peter the mystic and religious spiritually happy and mere fitted te his work of srace and rervlec, she lelin quishes him te his mUslen. much as she loves him ami because she loves him much. , , Peter's growth from the conventional le th? truly spiritual, through the en vironment of the wnr and the inllucnee of love, is movingly described nnd the cVorlptlen carries n searching inqui sition into human psychology.

The fabric is unified in feeling and in movement, yet it is like life in its loose threads and un kempt edges. Kverj thing .is net settled ns iu the "well-made novel. Ner. indeed, is everything or an thing altogether settled in life. This qual ity of questing, of partial achievement with ether achievement always poten tial, gives the book a marvelous llfe-likcne-s. Yet it is net a work of real ism, in the technical, or even sordid, sense. In tone nnd temper ".Simen Called-Peter" is romantic. The author will be remembered ns a Church of Kngliind chaplain who had charge of n Seuth African labor bat talion in France.

But his patently propagandist statu of mind need net net as a deterrent te these who may pick up ' 'The Kead (Harcourt, Bruce & -Ce.). The story breathes propaganda, surely; It recks of covert attacks at the capitalistic class but withal Its manifest "message is cloaked in nn intriguing story In which argument Is made te run close behind fact possibly only fictional "The Read" Is the life story of Hilda Thorsen, n girl of a little Mtauie Western town who gees te Chicago nnd Is betrayed by n childhood days playmate who Is studying nt the uni versity there, facing the heroic strug gle of a girl In her situation, Hilda takes up. the battle, net bravely but rather despairingly.

That things nre net ns they should be, Hilda realizes, but she seems unable te mnke up her mind just what should be done, except te indulge in dot bespattered dreams of the "new eclnl order." She doesn't believe in Ecrvnnts but she has one when she can afford it. She doesn't believe in war but she helps out when war comes she learns of chaos economically nt home, but prefers te stay in Russia. Fer the fictional part Mr. Tebcnkln ends with a dnsh into the new "no ending" style by merely giving u hint of a future romance for his heroine.

Though Cal were his guu swung iu front from his belt and this Is "the quickest draw In the world for them that can use it" the men didn't like his ways, especially as he "centlp. broke" his horses, and fenced iu the range. Itllllc's repugnnnce was due te the fact that her father had divided his property in hilf in his will, leaving half property in hnlf lu his will, leaving half old pal, Bill Harris, in order te cement ft family friendship. The conditions were that the two should run the ranch .together for three years, nnd if ene of them left It before the time the ether should take nil. Of course it's easy le see what would happen.
