"I thought you wore going O' to meet us." said Beth, with a toss of her head. "We waited until every one had left the theater. snorted her mother, flop ping Into a chair and fanning herself vigorously. 'I'm sorry- I forgot." explained Brooks, who this time spoke the truth. '•Forgot, forgot! That's a nice ex cuse!" "I said I was sorry." he snapped. I've been worried about something else." 'Just spoiled the whole evening, leav ing us there to be insulted by lot of men." declared Mrs. Hnrrls. "When we were standing in front of the theater, waiting for you. a snip of a boy came up to me and said, 'Hello, little, one, aren't yon Inimnome?'" 'Why, I thought he spoke to met" affirmed Beth. Her mother looked at her indig nantly. No, lie didn't," she retorted, with asperity. "I guess I know when I'm spoken to. The very idea! Where's Emma Brooks told her that she had gone out for ff few minutes. Who with?" demanded Mrs. Harris promptly. "I think she went alone." "You thluk she went alone! Don't you know? I don't see how you dare let your wife go out alone in this part of New York at this time of night.' "Well, nobody stole you," growled Joe, "so I guess Emma '11 get home safely. Something has probably de tained her. That's all I know about it. If she wants to tell you more when she conies that's her business, not mine." "I certainly do not approve of her being out without a proper escort. It isn't ladylike." "What I want to know is, where did she go?" insisted her mother. Brooks turned upon her, and an oath almost escaped him as he snarled: "You want to know a good many things, but it seems to me that a man and his wife cau have some privacy. I told you she went on business, if she wants to tell you, all right, but don't try to mother-in-law it out of me!" The entrance of Emma and Smith stopped on Mrs. Harris' lips the wrath ful retort that had risen to them. She rose and greeted her daughter with an air of maternal solicitude. "Ah, there you are, dear! Where have you been? We've been so wor ried." "I am a little late." "We were wondering about you, and Joe wouldn't tell," said Beth. Smith reassured them. "I was taking care of Emma all right," he declared. "You see, I'm a sort of utility man with the ladies— always trailing along in the rear ready to touch my cap and do all the chores and errands necessary." Emma bad taken no notice of her husband, wboBe eyes from the moment of her appearance had been glued avidly upon her. There was nothing In her demeanor to indicate that she had succeeded. Indeed, she appeared haggard and worn out, as she was, for the emotious of the night had left her exhausted to the point of breaking down. His anxiety and apprehension Increased as be marked her condition. "Where did you meet her?" he de manded of Smith, with an effort: "On the way home," he answered. Emma went to Mrs. Harris and put her arm around her. "Mother, I'm very tired tonight," she said appeallngly. "You won't mind if I ask you to go home and leave me. I've something to till you some time, but I want to be aloue now." "You do look all tuckered out, Em ma," commented Beth. "I am. You" won't mind, will you. mother?" "Certainly not. I'm hot and sticky myself." "I'll take you to the subway and put you on the car," volunteered Brooks. "You needn't mind," declined Mrs. Harris., "You're too disagreeable to night. If you bring my purse from Emma's room, Jimsy will take us. Won't you. Jimsy?" "I'm still the utility man," respond ed the complaisant Smith as Brooks went on the errand. While Beth was putting her mother's hat straight Mrs. Brooks whispered to Smith: "Tell mother as much as I told you and then come back." He nodded. "Come on, folks," he said as Brooks reappeared with the purse. "You know time and the subway wait for no man." Torturod by suspense. Brooks stood watching his wife. She had sunk on to the sofa and sat there, still wearing her hat, the pic ture of weariness and sorrow. The color came and went in his sunken cheeks. It was certain from her attitude that her mission had fail ed, yet he feared to learn It from her Hps. She gave no indication of intention or desire to break the silence or even that she was aware of his presence. He could bear it no longer. "He wouldn't do anything? It's all up?" The words escaped him tremulously. In despairing tone, as though they an swered the interrogation. She did not reply, but, rising and drawing from her bosom the papei Cftntalu Williams bad given her.-hand mtm I'd It to htm. He took it hesitatingly, almost fear fully. "For me?" "For you." As he read It the blood rushed to his face, and he gave a sigh of Im mense relief. Joyfully he looked ovei to her, but there was no responsive exultation. She appeared crushed. It might have been his death warrant. Doubting whether he had read 11 aright, he perused the acquittal again, with increasing exultation. "Emma, you've succeeded!" he cried. This means he won't prosecute and it's all right. You made him do it. You have saved me!!' She nodded her acquiescence, and he went to her, brimming over with relief and gratification, to take her in his arms. 'You're the best little girl that evei happened, the pluckiest"— Gently she pushed him from her. 'Tlease don't, Joe!" "Why. what's the matter?" "I'm tired—very tired." "Of course you are," he said in a tone of concern and tenderness. "You sit down there. I'll bet you had a hard time, know what Williams Is." He would have led her to the sofa, but again she repulBed hlui gently. He went to the table and took up the ac quittal he had laid on it Found my accounts to be correct," he muttered. "That means he will have the books fixed up and nothing will show. Qid he say much about me?" Not very much." But I bet lie gave you an awful ar gument. Williams is not an easy man to get to give in. But here It is In black and white, and lie can't go back on tills. Did you ask him to put It in writing?" No." Then he did it of his own accord. Wonder If he called the detectives off. Did he say anything about them?" "No." "But It's all clear sailing now," he went on, -selfishly jubilant already planning for the future. "I can get another position and a better one. There's enough money left to give me time to find one. Do you think he'll interfere any more, Emma?" I don't know." What do you think? You must have some idea." "I haven't the slightest." "Well, anyway, Emma, you did splen didly. You came right to the front." As he uttered the commendation he tried again to caress her. 'Tlease don't, Joe!" This time she rebuffed him, sharply and moved away from him. "Oh, all right, if that's the way you feel about It!" He turned from her. with an injured air and, lighting cigarette, began to pace' the room. Although in his re morse during her absence he had re solved not to ask her what had passed in the captain's rooms, curiosity, now that his confidence had been restored by the proof of immunity, tormented his vicious mind. He was not only ready, but desired to know everything that had occurred even to unavowable details, if any such there were. "He was there when you arrived?" he questioned, seeing that she showed no disposition to talk. "Yes." 7 "Anybody else?" "He was alone." "You must have caught him In a good humor. He'd never have done this in one of his usual grouches. I didn't know you were such a diplomat. What did you say to him?" "A good many things." "Didn't tell him I sent you, did you?" "He knew." "He knew? How did he know? Who toid him?" "I dou't know. He just knew." "Somebody must have told him. and you were the only one who knew." "No he knew too. I didn't tell." "But how did you open the conver sation?" he demanded impatiently. "What did you say? What's the mat ter? Can't you answer me?" "I don't see why I should." "I do. I want to know, and I've a right to know." She vouchsafed no reply. lie dropped his authoritative tone and became persuasive' "You say he was alone when you ar rived. How did he receive you?" he coaxed. She remained silent. "What did he say to you? What did he do?" Still she did not answer, but sat as though in a stupor. ••Cone, Emma, don't be contrary. Tell all that took place. You know that it is between us— Did he ask you to kiss him?" "I wonder what time it is," she said, with a shiver, as though she had not heard him. "Never mind the time. What did he say when you allied him to let me off? He must have said a lot. You were gone long enough." "Will you please tell me what time it is?" "It is about 11:30. What of it? Whj don't you tell me what happened at Williams'?" She rose, still in her stupor of weari ness. "Goodby, Joe," she said. "Goodby he echoed, amazed. "Where ire you going?" "To mother's. Jimsy's coming back for me." 'You didn't say anything to youi mother while she was here about this?" "That was for your sake. Every on« doesn't need to know." "What are you going to your moth er's for? This is where you belong— your home. And what's Jimsy got to do with It?" "1 said goodby." "What's the reason you can't stay here?" "You couldn't expect me to live with you after what happened tonight." "Why not?" There was consternation as well as anger in his voice. "Because it Is quite impossible. You ought to realize that." "I don't see why it Is impossible. Everything is all right now unless you have got some reason that makes 11 Impossible." "Yes, I think I've all the reason In the world to make It impossible. 1 think it's time for you to realize it." (To be continued) V? Home Course In Live Stock Farming x.- -Handling Dairy Prod ucts. By C. V. GREGORY, Author of Home Course In Modern Agriculture," "Making Money on the Farm," Etc. Copyright, 1B09, by American Press Association HE importance of cleanliness In milking was mentioned in the preceding article. In ad dition to taking care that no dust or dirt falls into the milk, it should not be allowed to stand in* ttao stable any length of time after milk ing. Milk absorbs odors rapidly, and butter that Is "off flavor" is the re sult. The milk room may be in connection with the barn or at the well. The lat ter. If not too far from the barn, is the best place. If the milk room is at the barn it should be separated from It by a tight passageway, with a door at each end to exclude all odors. The milk room should have windows FIG. XVIII.—CHUBNTNO DAY ON FARM. enough to provide plenty of light and ventilation. The floor should be of smooth cement. If the walls are of the same material or of brick coated with cement they can be more easily kept clean^than If they are made of wood. The floor should be scrubbed often enough to keep It perfectly clean, and the tank should be cleaned out frequently. Use of the Hand Separator. Within the last few years the hand separator has come Into general use on farms where six or more cows are kept, doing away with the old gravity system of raising cream. With the separator all the cream can be re moved, which is impossible by any other method. The skimmilk can be fed to the calves warm and sweet, which is a great advantage. There Is less fat in the skimmilk, but this ele ment can be supplied to the calves.a good deal more cheaply by flaxseed than by butter. There may be much less space in the milk tank, as only the cream will need to be kept there. Where a creamery is patronized a great deal of work is saved by having only the cream to haul. In selecting a separator the most im portant point to look to is the ease of cleaning. There Is a great deal of dif ference in separators in this respect. Some are so complicated that it is al most impossible to wash all parts thoroughly, while others can be so completely taken apart that washing Is an easy task. It is not the number of parts to a bowl that makes a sepa rator difficult to keep clean, but the ease with which all these parts may be separated, so that they may The Importance of Cleanliness. Serious objection has been made to the cream separator on the ground thnt it lowers the quality of the cream and butter. In many cases there is ground for this complaint. Unless ab solute clcai'liucss is the rule the cream is liable to be of poor quality. The milk and slime in the bowl ar« the best of food for injurious bacteria, and these multiply rapidly when the separator is not kept clean. Never rinse the bowl with cold water and leave it until the next milking. It can not be thoroughly cleaned In this way. In cold weather a rinsing with cold wa ter. followed by half a gallon or more of hot water, will tresh well water. Do not keep the cream too long before taking it to the creamery, not over two days in warm weather and three or four in cold. Good butter cannot be made from old cream. It hardly pays to make butter on the farm unless special customers can be obtained. Creameries have multiplied until there i3 one within easy shipping distance of almost every farm. The organization of co-operative creamer ies has kept most markets ou a strictly competitive basis, so that the prices paid for cream are usually as high as the market will warrant. These large creameries are usually equipped with all the latest appliances for buttermak ing. They are in charge of experienced buttermakers and are in shape to turn out a uniform product that will sell for much higher prices than the ordinary run of farm made butter. Use of the Tester. No dairy farmer can afford to be without a Babcock tester. A complete tester, consisting of. a tester, milk and cream bottles and a supply of sulphur ic acid, can be purchased for about $5. With a tester the farmer can test his cows, as described in article 8, at home. He can test the separator to see that it is working properly. If the bowl is wabbly or the machine out of level a considerable amount of butter fat may be lost In the skimmilk with out the dairyman knowing anything about it. If you churn your own cream a tester will enable you to test your buttermilk and determine whether or not you are losing much butter fat in this way. If you patronize a cream ery your tester will come handy for keeping a check on the tests at the creamery. Most creamerymen are hon est, but that is all the more reason why the dishonest ones should be run out of business. Underreadlng the test 2 or 3 per cent will add greatly to the profits of the creameryman and can not be detected unless the patrons have testers of their own. The Babcock tester is simple to op erate. The sample of milk to be test ed should be thoroughly tested by pouring from one jar to another three or four times. A sample is then suck ed up Into the pipette. By putting your finger on the top of the pipette you can let the milk run down until it just comes to the mark on the neck. Then run the milk into one of the test bottles. Number the bottle to corre spond with the sample. The sulphuric acid used Is what Is known as com mercial sulphuric acid. The acid and the milk should be at the same tem perature before mixing. If they have been in the same room for a few hours they will be all right. Fill the measuring glass up to the mark with the acid, taking care not to get any on your hands or clothing. Pour the acid carefully down the side of the bottle and then mix it thoroughly with the milk by giving the bottle a rotary motion. The sulphuric acid combines with the albumen and casein and leaves the fat free. Set the bottles In the tester as soon as the acid has been added. When all the bottles are filled the tester should be turned at a uniform rate of about 100 revolutions a minute for five min utes. This brings the fat to the top of the liquid in the bottle. Hot water should then be added carefully to bring the fat up to the neck of the bottle. The machine is then whirled 1 be reached with a brush. Some of the other points to consider are convenience, capacity and durabil ity. The capacity will depend largely upon the number of cows kept. It Is always better to get a machine too large than too small. The latest mod els of nearly all makes of separators are made so that the top of the supply tank is little more than waist high. No other kind should be bought. It Is a useless waste of energy to lift heavy cans of milk five or six feet high every night and morning. With these low built makes the skimmilk and cream cans may be placed on the floor, so Ihat they will require little lifting. do at night. At least once a day in winter and every time the machine is- used in summer the bowl should be taken apart, wash ed well and thoroughly scalded. Be sure to remove every particle of grease and dirt. Use a brush, never a rag. A rag Is difficult to keep clean and often forms home for bacteria. The so called "dish rag flavor" is often found lu butter, due to the use of a rag in washing the separator. Neither should i) vr be used to dry the bowl or other tinware. In starting to wash the sepa rator and other milk dishes coid water should be used first to remove the milk, as hot water scalds the casein and makes it difficult to remove. This rinsing should be.followed by a thor ough washing with hot water and a final rinsing with boiling water, if the dishes are then set ou the back of the stove they will dry quickly without rusting. Handling the Cream. As soon as the cream is separated it should be cooled down to about 50 de grees as rapidly as possible. This can be done by putting it In a tank of I Fid. XIX.—USING HAND SEPARATOR. for two minutes. Then more hot wa ter is added to bring the fat column up into the graduated neck of the bottle. After this the machine is whirled for one minute more, and the test is ready to read. The reading should be done before the fat hardens. Each of the small spaces on the Deck of the bottle represents two-tenths of 1 per cent. The number of spaces through which the fat column extends indicates Stops Lameness Much of the chronic lamcnefs in horses ia due 1o neglect. See%at your horse is not al. lowed to go lamo.
