It contains practically all the food materials of whole milk, with the exception of the fat, most of which, of course, is removed by the process of churning. Buttermilk contains about 3 per cent of protein, nearly 5 per cent of carbohydrates in the form of milk sugar. 0.7 per cent of mineral constituents and 0.5 per cent of fat On this basis a Quart of buttermilk contains a little over an ounce of protein, which Is ,one of the chief body builders. Prepared or artificial buttermilk is usually made from skim milk and has all the chemical properties of buttermilk. If it is churned, as Is usually the case. It agrees in appearance and flavor with real buttermilk. In fact the U. S. dairy experts say it la often a better product, especially if clean, sweet skim milk Is used and It Is carefully ripened and churned. A delicious hot weather drink can be made from ordinary buttermilk by simply adding lemon juice and sugar. "Buttermilk lemonade" as it Is called, made by using the Juice of three lemons to a quart of butter milk and adding sugar--t0 suit the taste. Buttermilk Pie?Heat 1 cupful of fresh, rich buttermilk in a double boiler until It is warm but not hot. Add to the mil* 2 tablespoonfuls of cornstarch mixed with 4 table spoonfuls of cold water, then cook the mixture until It 1, thick and smooth.

My Husband's Empty Pillow Brings Home the War to Me. | A of something I could not j see made me ehiver. Eve muit have | shuddered ao, sometime, when the serpent slipped past her on a rooon lesa midnight, and her daughters suf fer that way ever since. And doubt less poor frightened Eve turned for comfort to Adam, even as I, her mis erable descendant, turned towards my husband's pillow. I had known that "scared feeling" on many a black night of my child hood and girlhood?every woman knows it, probably?but now that I am Bob's wife, it has lost its terrors. I'm sure, now, that Bob's strong arms will hold me safe and that the warmth of his dear body will stop my shaking. I reached out to touch the little scar at the corner of his square jaw. It is an ugly L-shaped crease, an inch long each way. It would spoil any other man's good looks, but not my Bob's. My flngrera know H as a blind man knows his plate. They searched for I it, this night in August, 1918, as they have every night since my wedding day. But what they touched was only the cold, smooth pillow. As I snatched my hand away, my dread defined itself. The bed changed I in my dream, to a trench banked up j with sandbags?and before me stretch- j ed the stiffened body of my husband. "War!" I screamed. "War! War!" And waked myself. Thus I, Jane Lorimer, a soldier's bride, was waked at last to the war. Thousands of American wives, like me. I suppose, have never been roused to it until, in the solitude of their bed- 1 ?5JEK j C*9Trlfht 1918.

Oh, I're done my ahare of Rod CroM work, and I've sold Thrift 8tampa. and bought Liberty Bonde, and made corn bread, and cooked meatleaa meat* ?and atttl the wide ocean atretched between me and the war. Then, one day. the poatman brought a letter without a atamp. plainly, gov ernment bualneaa. Bob waa aum moned to the colora. There followed daya of excitement In getting him off. frienda to aay good-by to. buttona to sew on with atrong linen thread, a kit to pack, the parade of aelcctive aerv ice men, and a crowd of relatlvea at the train. I was so proud of my man. I wanted everybody to know that Robert At w ood Lorlmer, who waa going off to be a soldier, was my husband. But still, the war didn't seem very close to me. In a few mentha Bob came home on furlough with endless funny tales j of cantonment life. He was home again a month ago when Daddy Lorl mer nearly died of apoplexy. It was agony to let him go back, both times, but still he waa aafe in thla country and the war la far away, "over there." ?Now the final parting la done. He sails for France, on what I do not know, from where I do not know, nor when. His mall la "quarantined." It may be weeka before I hear from him. Nice people come to the houae think ing they keep me happy becauae I laugh. Chryatabel Lorlmer, Bob'a twin sister, b^gs to sleep with me. But 11 could never stand that. I go bravely to my room alone. Alone? Bob'a shadow lingers In every nook. Bob'a photograph hanga above my bed and is reflected in his chiffonier glaaa. Bob's clothes hang limply on the cloaet hangera. Bob's shoes stand in neat rows on their proper ehelvea. And Bob'a wife? Bob'a wife is trying to make herself brave by saying, over and over. "Well, if it'a Bob'a war, it'a my war, too What can I do to help him win it?" (To Be Continued.) AFTER THE WAR By DOROTHY DIX THE WORLD'S HIGHEST PAID WOMAN WRITER. "I wish." said the gray haired woman, "that I could live thirty years longer. so that I might see what my sex Is going to do after the war. "For this war has made a new heaven and a new eai th for women, and a new hell, too, for that matter. It is going: to make the world, not only tsafe for democ racy, but safe for women. It is blotting out the sex line that sep arates the masculine sheep from the feminine goats, and when it is over, the world will not be in habited by men and women, but by human beings. "It is amusing to think how all the ancient superstitions about women have shrivelled up and per ished in the glare of battle. Formerly one of the arguments against giving women the suffrage, was that they couldn't bear arms or do anything to defend thetr country in time of warfare. No body has the nerve to advance that theory now, with women making high explosives, and do ing the delicate work on airplanes, and with Red Cross nurses, women ambulance drivers and canteen workers, going calmly about their business with shrapnel falling: about them. "And nobody trots out the old bujraboo about woman gettlnp out of her (.acred sphere In thosa times, when women are being employed to do every possible variety of work from digging: coal to unload ing cars and raising crops. "But It Isn't what women have done or are doing in the way of war work?It is what they are go ing to do in the future that piques my curiosity ad makes me wish that I waa going to be there to sec what effect the great war will really have on molding the des tiny of the coming woman. "To begin with, there are hundred* of thousands of women to wtiom the war hAs brought the first touch of real life they have ever known. For the first time in all their pampered existence they have made sacrifices; for the first time they have heard the call of duty, for the first time their minds and hearts have been Inspired by a worth while aim. They have been butterflies, flitting about In the sunshine from flower to flower, with no thought except for their own pleasure with literally no interests except In clothes and motors, and In fine houses and partiea.
