It is a soft cheese, and some persons like its strong flavor, but it is not popular, in most sections. There is an odd little reason for this--Limburger has a strong odor. The name "£.imburger" came from Belgium. In that country is a province called Limburg where farmers long ago learned to make cheese oj this kind. The best Limburger cheese is made from whole milk, that is, milk from which the cream has not been skimmed. In Germany a cheese very much like Limburger is made--it is known as "Backstein." Milk and Its Products V--CHEESK English cheese-maker pouring curd into small grinding machine. · The French make a cheese which has been compared with Limburger, but it differs in some ways. It is known as "Camen- bert," and a bluish mold grows on it. Those are only a few ot the cheeses known to commerce. We also have cottage cheese, Swiss cheese, brick cheese, Cheddar cheese, Philadelphia cream cheese and other kinds. Cottage cheese can be made from skimmed milk, and that usually is what goes into it. About one pound of cottage cheese can be obtained from a gallon of skimmed milk. Some cheese factories add cream to the skimmed milk, and this gives the cottage cheese a better flavor. Philadelphia cream is another soft cheese. It really lives up to its name, for it is made from cream. It has high food value, and makes a good "spread for bread." Brick, Swiss and Cheddar are among the important hard cheeses. Cheddar (also called "Wisconsin" or "New York" cheese) may be taken as an example. It was named for the village of Cheddar in England, but more of it is made in Wisconsin today than in Great Britain. The whole story of Cheddar cheese is too long to give here, but we may take up a few points. Rennet extract is added to milk to make it curdle, that is, to form curd, about three ounces ot rennet to 100 gallons of milk. This produces curds in about 20 minutes. Later the curd is cut into small cubes. The cubes are "cooked" for a short time, but are not made warmer than the air on a hot summer day (about 38 degrees Fahrenheit.) The next step is to drain away the "whey," or watery part of the milk. After that the bits ot curd are matted together until they form a solid mass. The mass is cut into strips, salted, hooped put in a press for two or three days, dried, covered with a thin coat of paraffin, and set aside to "cure" or "ripen."

K«i fc S,n!Jo«. lac CONVICT^ DAUGHTER By RUTH RAY KANE MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE CHAPTER THIRTY-FOUR OUTSIDE JIM'S door at t h e hospital, with his delirious cry of "Murder!" still ringing in her ears, Lona felt an impulse to run that almost overcame her. She felt as if she could go down the corridor and out into the street and vanish forever, away from everything . . . . Jj m brown-eyed Jim, with his drawling, "Girl" and his almost fierce understanding of her troubles . . . Jim, j n whom she had felt so secure--to find him connected with murder! "The net! He'll go through it, I tell you! It's murder . . ." Through the closed door the heavy voice sounded again, and putting h e r hands to her ears, she lurched down the ' hall. Without leaving word where she was going, she passed on out into the street. What to do next was the problem that confronted her, as she struck out blindly through the misty September morning. She looked about her almost calmly at the bustle of the kindly little town she had grown, in so short a time, to consider as home, and a rebellious lump rose in her throat. Why did things have to happen like this, she asked herself, beating her wings against her fate like a caged bird beats against its bars. She was a convict's daughter. Wasn't that sufficient? Did she have to be a convict's wife? "No, oh, no!" She cried out aloud as the thought brought a picture of Jim flashing before her eyes. Jim, with his kindness and his gentleness, shut away from her, behind those grim bars, as daddy had been. She couldn't allow that to happen! Suddenly, as she tramped on, her shocked mind seemed to clear itself, and she knew that nothing really mattered but Jim's safety. She must protect him, somehow. That was the big thing. She must manage to keep people away from him until he was better--people who might suspect. And as soon as he was -able to travel they must slip away from Brighton, well as she loved it. Move on. Two weeks the detectives had said in the letter he'd sent to Clark Martin. He would be back in two weeks! She must lay her plans carefully - *. * « True to Dinah's predictions, the Brighton Hews carried the story of Jim's accident blazoned across its headlines that evening. Opening the hospital's copy with trembling hands.-xLona scanned it fearfully. Would there be a picture? She had learned so much of the ways of newspapers and their reporters that she was prepared for anything.. It would not have surprised her if the very picture that had caused them to come to Brighton were not raked out of the files and printed again. She dreaded to look. Her fears, h o w e v e r were groundless. There were no pictures of her nor of Jim, and Mrs. Morriss had evidently plied her reporter friend with so m a n y facts that he had felt no necessity of going into personalities too deeply, "Bridge Worker Saves Comrade. Plunges Into Water" the story was headed. A vivid account of the accident followed with Jim's heroism played up in glowing terms. Reading it, Lona felt the tension in her tired mind lessening. Nothing which might make people wonder about them was included. Instead of the tell-tale pictures she had feared, there was only a snapshot 01 the worker Jim had saved. Beneath it, and half way down the page, was another span of the new bridge. "Accident Recalls Famous Colorado Experiment," the bridge picture was captioned and, under that lead, the reporter had taken his one flight into the reminiscence Lona had been dreading. It was an impersonal enough article, but she caught her breath as her eyes followed the black lines that seemed all at once, to leap out at her. "Will a safety net for structural iron workers ever be developed? was the question raised anew by yesterday's accident on the Brighton bridge. Various safety devices have been tried in this most hazardous line of work without success. The most famous failure along this line occurred some five years ago on the now completed Wetmore bridge across the Colorado river at Wetmore, Colo. "A safety net was developed at that time by James Rankin, the assistant engineer in charge of the bridge. The net was given much publicity in the trade journals, and a test was arranged with the representative of a large manufacturing company present. One of the bridge workers, a friend of Rankin's. volunteered to jump from the top span while Rankin manipulated the net. The force of the jump sent the experimenter through the net and into the water below. Because of the entangling meshes, it was impossible to reach him and he drowned. "Rankin, who claimed his invention had been tampered with disappeared after making a statement to that effect. Upon examination it was found the net had been purposely weakened. Further investigation uncovered friction between the victim and Rankin over ownership of the pending patent. For his part in the much publicized experiment, the victim had demanded a share of future royalties, an arrangement to which the inventor objected. "Subsequently a suit against Uankm was entered by the dead man's heirs, but the patent on the net, which was granted to Rankin shortly following his disappearance, was never taken up, and the suit was dropped. Rankin, wanted for questioning, never has been traced, and evidence pointing to] THIS SHIP 13 JINKED .. ONLY A VA3MAM CAW JINX SHIP" IT'S TH AE.». SHE JIMX WHEN SHE.

Lona stood for a long moment staring down at the paper when she had finished reading. Then, almost furtively, she folded the sheet with the tell-tale article hidden from view and slipped it back among the magazines on the desk. It was an instinctive action, and the next moment she realized its futility. As if by hiding that one copy she could keep back that j damning bit of information! Her head was whirling as Jim's nurse, calm-faced and smiling, came down the corridor to the desk. "Our patient's quite a hero," she observed in her professional voice. "Newspapers make people so romantic, don't you think, Mrs. Bennett?" She reached for the folded paper and Lona felt a sudden in-iiul^ to tear it up. She could have screamed as the woman opened the page. Then, with an effort, she pulled herself together. "How is he?" she managed to ask, her voice surprising her by its nonchalance. "Is he--rational?" "He's still a little delirious but you mustn't worry. It's only to be expected in a case like this. He keeps talking about some kind of a net, as if it bothered him. It's odd h«u- he keeps on that one subject. You wouldn't know why, I suppose?" -She was looking at the paper as she spoke and Lena's heart jumped. The nurse's eye was traveling down toward that picture and its story. In another moment she would see it. Would she grasp the significance? "Thf-To's jotnethinR I'd like you and IJie dortor to rto for me." r.oria burst out, dospcrntcH-. and the nurse raised licr eyes from the paper, struck by her a l t e r e d lone. "U's- about lhi--th1* delirium rjf Jim'5. You see. Jim is rather -srnsilive. He'd h.ile to have anyone kno\v he -A-as out of his heat).
