We Spend
Thousands of
Dollars a
. 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.

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"

morrow. A phone call te

She took him promptly at his sugges

"Whatman?"
"This man." His trembling hand
Indicated Olsen. "He was standln en

She had nothing te say. The wind
had died out of the sails of her anger.
"We're net geln' te arrest Hull yet yet

(.her. "I'm nrranein' te hire n nrirntn

".Mrs. Hull. I want te.uk ou a few

She moved beside him. Tlii shnck of

nnd dictated a few sentences slowly.
She wrote the statement, word for

arrested. He had tried te smooth ever
dlfiiculties between him and Jack. Hut
Klrby, ngalnst his desire, found prac
tical rcaseni of policy te explain thcwi
overtures. .Tames had known he 'would
seen be released through the efforts of
ether cattlemen. 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. Ilchind these cold, calculating
OK" what was he thinking?
Only once had he seen him thrown
off his poise. That was when Kirby
nnd Ile.e hnd met him coming out of
the Paradox white and shaken, his
arm wrenched nnd strained. He had
been nonplussed nt Sight of them.
for n moment he hnd let IiIh eyes
mirror the dismay of his soul. The
explanation he had given wns quite in.-
ntlequute ns n cause.
Twenty-four hours later Klrby had
discovered the dead body of the Japan
' ese valet Hcrikawa. The man had been
1 dead uerhaps n day. Mere bourn than
one had been spent by Kirby pondering
en the possible connection of his cou ceu
sin'w momentary breakdown nnd thu
servant's death. Hud James come fresh
lrem the inurdr -of Herlk.iwa?
It was josslble "that the Oriental
might have held evidence against him
and tlirc.f enett te divulge it. James,
with the fear of death In his heart,
might have gene each day Inte the
apartment wheic the mnn was lurking,
taking te him feed nnd newspapers.
They might have quarreled. The
strained tendons of Cunningham's arm
could be accounted for a geed deal mere
readily en the hypothesis of n bit of ex
pert jujutsu than en that of i fall

WAR AS
PEARL OR OPAL
Heroine of Hareld MacGrath'a
New Nevel Is Perplexing
lluth Knschede, the heroine of Hnreld
MncGrath'H new novel, "The Iteaged
Edge," (Doubleday, Page & Ce.) is
intriguing ana en
chanting. 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.
The d e c t e r in
Canten, who aids
her te save the
haheld atacanATii fcvcr-strlcken life
, ,, of fugltlve "nod
dy Spurlock, with the line percep
tions of a finely humnne physician
finds in lluth the purity of the pearl.
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

publicans nnd sinners te

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

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

Peter's growth from the conventional

Peter and June auu muir uuuii
are all that matter in the novel, which
is singularly ene of two characters and
ene theme. 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

The author will be remembered ns a
Church of Kngliind chaplain who had
charge of n Seuth African labor bat
talion in France. Part of his ministry
has been spent nmeng the Rasute nnd
ether African tribes. His book of war
experience?. "Carrying On," was one

rather a temperamental but calculating

unable te mnke up her mind just what
