i CHAPTER ni
i With a package of food un
der his arm Eddie stepped out on
the porch of the" store. The propri
etor followed him.
i "Nice weather we're having,
sir." The man was amiable, but
he was too polite to express any
Curiosity.
! "The weather's preat." Eddie
admitted. "That your dog there?"
"Yep, he's mine."
I Eddie took the paper off the
package and tossed a piece of
cheese to the dog. A 'convulsive
tnovement of the throat and the
jjift disappeared.
1 "Yoii, sure got a great animal
fhere." - ;
tOnce more Eddie shook bands
ith the dog and, because he was
fluctuant to feed his own famish
ed stomach before his fellowman,
lie moved off down a dirt road
that -wound away between tracts
of timber and neglected fields,
f His whole life was now definite
ly behind him. He was like a
Juan walking in a dream. His sur
' Toundings were so utterly unfamil
iar that nothing seemed exactly
xeal. Even the yielding earth, un
juer feet accustomed to pave
. jinents, was oddly fantastic. And
fthc air his lungs filled with a
'clean freshness that was soft and
TSalmy . .Strange, bewildering
sensations stirred In his breast,
jard there were almost terrifying
moments when he felt that he was
alone and helpless upon the face
of the earth,
j He came ! to a lazy creek and
jwent down to the water's edge to
wash his face and hands and dried
them with his handkerchief. Fur
ther on he came to a bend in the
'road where there was a grass
bank. He sat down to eat. With his
back against a tree and his legs
stretched out he partook, without
' undue haste of his food. When he
finished he drew out a pack of
'cigarettes and slowly inhaled the
luxury of a smoke.
Over a distant field he saw
three or four great birds floating
in circles and he imagined they
were eagles. He had never even
heard of buzzards. -The sun was
getting hotter and his tired eyes
slowly closed. There was almost no
thought in his mimd h e didn't
want to think, at all he Just
wanted to forget.
And then, for no reason he
could explain, his eyes suddenly
i went open.
I A girl on a horse was riding in
1 the road past him. They were not
more than a dozen feet apart. She

KEEP INFANT'S FOOD
AT LOW TEMPERA TURE
Dr. Copeland Urges Mothers to Take Special Precau
tions to Protect Baby from the Dangers of j
Intestinal Troubles in Summer:
, By ROYAL S. COPELAND, M. D.
United States Senator from New York.
Former Commissioner of Health. Keu York Ctiy.
SUMMER is a trying time for little babies. No matter how watch
ful the mother is all the rest, of the year, she must take spefcial,
pains 1b. hot weather. No detail Is too small to be overlooked t
- Even a husky grown-up suffers the effects of intense heat If
this h true, think of how trying the hot days and
nights are for the frail infant.
Another factor is the danger of milk spoilage.
That fine product of the farm reaches your door
in perfect condition. It is delivered even in the
large cities at a very low temperature. It must
be kept so. ' .
Exposed to room temperature, even f n a
rery few hours, it is sure to be teeming withiun
friendlv eerms. There can be no haphazard
care of this precious food. The supply must be
kept cold until feeding time arrives. j
One of the. first effects of giving contami
nated milk, is an upset digestion. The stomach
rebels. Next, diarrhoea is noted. This caii be'
very weakening. !
We look npon diarrhea as an effort -oni the'
oart of the system to rid itself of the disturbing;
substances in the blood. These serve to irritate;
It makes n. difference' whether It is the acidity set up by the bad
milk, or because the milk curdles and produces irritating curds. What-i
ever is the exact cause makes little difference. The infant hasj
diarrhea and It must Be enecrcea
"The symptom mav be the effect of T
a wrong mixture for the feedings.
Too nuch cream "fop milk" or
too much sugar. These are, causes
tor diarrhea.
Children differ aiot In their 'ten
dencies to Intestinal troubles. Even
In the same familv there is a lot of
tiful.
She had reminded him of a del
icate golden flower that was spir
itually alive with an inner vital
flame. Some hitherto unfelt sen
sation reached and penetrated Mm
with tremulous rays of light. His
mind remembered her symmetrical
body,- the living blue of her eyes,
the soft gold of her hair. But,
stranger than mere physical beau
ty was the sweep of a peculiar re
finement that lingered, achingly
around him like a faint perfume
that was the relic of an unknown
sweetness gone beyond the possi
bility of recapture.
With every passing second the
gulf between them widened; she
was gone and there was no hope
that he would ever see her again.
Once more Bernice Veressi .came
back into his mind- sensuous,
carmine-lipped, reeking with hot
house passion. In comparison with
the golden girl, Bernice and all
the others of her kind became in
his clarifying understanding
coarse and vaguely disagreeable
with tawdry cheapness.
brazen sophistication in their
harsh voices. Never again, he knew
in his heart, could his eyes look
on their kind with admiration or
desire.
Suddenly Eddie got up and
moved along once more down the
country road. Somewhere in this
quiet, sleepy land he knew he
must, find a hiding place and set
tle down. The feeling of exile was
upon him; the New York which
had been his whole world never
would receive him back again. The
Big Guy and the mob would never
forget nor forgive.
