It is called Jersey, and it gave us the · name of the woolen jacket known as a "jersey." Jersey has an area o£ 45 square miles, and a population of about 50,000. It belongs to Great Britain, but it is closer to the coast of France than to England. champion Jersey tow Jersey potatoes are famous, and so are Jersey cabbages, but most famous of all are Jersey cows. They rank among the best of the world's milk cows. More than a century ago, people of other lands sent traders to Jersey to buy some ot the cattle which had been bred on the island. Today there are Jersey cows in many countries. Their milk is extremely rich in "butter fat-" in other words, it has a great deal of cream, and ttie cream can be turned into butter. Another fine breed is the Guernsey named after a different island in the British channel. It is a rel- auvg of the Jersey, but is a little larger. Like the Jersey, the Guernsey supplies rich, yellow creamy milk. Many Jersey and Guernsey cows have produced their own weight in butter in a year. In other words, the cream in their milk, when turned into butter, made as many pounds as the cows weighed. There are more than 25,000,000 milk cows in (he United States and Canada. The average is close CHAUTER 30 The man called Jack Price had checked out. So the clerk told Loua the second time she called at the hotel hoping to see him. Ju»t ru;e minutes ago. No, he hadn't said where he was going. To the raiload station, probably. Leaving town. The eyes the clerk bent cm Lona were faintly scornful as it he resented her curiosity about one of his guests. Lona smiled to herself as she went back out on the street for the second time that morning, and headed for the city market to pick up her groceries for the day. Fate must be taking care of her, she thought, gratefully. If she had actually talked with the fellow perhaps lie wouldn't have gone away. As it was, she had been I worrying about nothing. She was glad she hadn't bothered Jim about it, she thought, as she prolonged the momentous decision between steak with mushrooms or chops with dressing, just for the pure enjoyment she got Irom wavering. She decided, finally, on tlie chops, and went on up Main street feeling very housewifely and conscious of the package under her arm. * o c She had no presentiment of what ,was to come as she set the dinner table that evening in readiness for Jim's return from work Looking back, later, she wondered how she could possibly have been so happy, so unbelievably happy. , The chops were neatly, breaded, waiting to be popped into the pan' and she was arranging a bunch o' aim v-auaaa. me average is close ,.p7-/K.

"Was he was he a reporter?" she brought oul ' A reporter?" Dinah sounded surprised. "I don't think so. He was hunting a . m a n . b y the name o£ Hankin. He seemed to thinl that might be Jim's name." "Kankin?" Lona shook tier head ··I've never heard that namo What made him think that Jim--' She broke otf, liei- eyes searching Uie bright face before her. "Die he have a picture cut from a news paper?" she asked, tensely. Dinah nodded. "It looked like Jim, too, Lona," she admitted un happily. "I told him your name was Bennett and that--that I was sure-it wasn't Jim in the picture It looked a lot younger than Jim " "Younger?" Relief took hold ot Lona. '-Oh, then it couldn't have been Jim. It's some mistake. The only picture I know of was taken lately. When \ve were married, and I was in it, too." "But it was Jim. Lona!" Dinah looked troubled. -I could have sworn it. And the man was a detective!" "A detective? '·Yes. He left this card. He said he was going to the bridge to get a look at Jim when lie leaves work. He's been called back to Chicago, he said, but he wants to see Jim before he leaves. He wouldn't say why he was looking for this--Rankin man." For a moment Lona stared down at the piece of cardboard Dinah had thrust into her hand. "Jack Price, Western Detective Agency,"' it read, and a feeling that something had gone wrong possessed her. Something besides her own tear o£ reporters. A detective! No newspaper hunting copy would work through a detective agency. Could it be that J i m -- a f t e r all. she knew so Jitile about him. Conscious of Dinah's eyes following her every move, she put the card into her apron pocket nonchalantly- '·Thanks for telling me, Dinah," she brought out, and removing her apron, casually reached £or her coat. "It's nothing to get hot and bothered about. Just some mistake in identity.'* She smiled as she pulled her hat down over her curls. "I have forgotten the cream for the salad" she told Dinah, lightly. "Would you mind waiting while I run down to the corner grocery? Jim I ., hates salad dressing w i t h o u t ! * whipped cream. I'll only be a minute." '·I h a v e my own supper to gel.'' Dinah reminded her, turning her chair with expert hands. "I must be going. I just thought I'd run over and tell you about--that man. I He--I didn't like him, Lona. He 1 asked so many questions, about ( where you came from, and about Jim's work." 1 "Don't let it worry you," Lona reassured her again. "It's quite an adventure, really. Imagine a real live detective in your own parlor! Wish 1 d been here." She managed to laugh as she lifted the clicking chair over the Morris threshold, and Dinah laughed, too. "He didn't look much like a detective,' she complained. "He wasn't fat and he didn't chew a cigar He was a disappointment." bne laughed again, and her spirits seemed destroyed.

Why she did not know. Surely there must be some mistake she told herself as she went down through town toward the bridge where Jim and the rest of his crew were waiting for the closing whistle. The man couldn t be hunting for Jim. It was someone else: someone who resembled him. That often hapened. And yet . . . Her feet quickened of their own mil.
