Today, as part o£ our series on sweets, I wish to take up other important facts. The world uses more cane sugai than all other kinds combined Last year the crop was estimatec at more than 20,000,000 tons This estimate compares with abou: 12,000,000 tons of beet sugar which is the only great rival ol cane sugar. sugar cane These figures mean an average of about 30 pounds of cane or beet sugar for each man, woman and child. That is a world average, but the amount per person is not the same in all countries. The people of the United States are large sugar-eaters. They "eat their own weight" in sugar each year, even more, than their- own weight. The average use of sugar is about 100 pounds per person Men and women usually weigh more than that, but children average a great deal less. Cuba leads the world as a producer of white cane sugar. A late yearly report gave a yield of more than 3,000,000 tons as the yield for Cuba's crop. India led all nations in its output of brown sugar Java, Formosa, the Philippine islands. Brazil, Hawaii and Puerto Hico also had large crops of cane sugar. When sugar cane is brought to the mill, the juice is taken from it. At first the juice is grayish or green in color, but it is clearec up with the help of chemicals chiefly sulphur dioxide and lime The juice is run through fillers to take out bits of mud. In past times, it was the common custom to boil the cane juice in open kettles. This plan still is followed, but many modern mills use "vacuum pans." Steam pipes heat the syrup, and it boils when it is not nearly so hot as when placed in open kettles. A mixing machine with fast- turning paddles stirs the syrup and there is more boiling before it becomes molasses. Further work joes on. and at last the molasses is turned into sugar. Brown sugar is obtained from Jie molasses, and a fair amounl of it is placed on the market and sold. Usually, however, the brown sugar is boiled again and refined until it is white. Most of what we buy is "granulated," that is it comes in tiny grains. The grains can be broken down into a powder, and in that case we have powdered sugar.

Through it the bed tight gleamed cheerily and beside Jim, leaning over the bed to talk to him, was a neat figure in the wue of a policeman's uniform. Another policeman stood, cap in hand, just inside the circle of hght, and Lena's hand went to her moutli, stifling the cry that almost forced itself through her lips. It had come, then. She had been ngnt about Clark Martin she thought, in a swift flash of con- .ntion. He had been only leading ier on, pretending to sympathize, straightening her shoulder* she marched resolutely into the room Voiding to do now but face things' ?or Jim's sake she'd face them bravely, she promised, and ther. she shrank back as Jim suddenly smiled up at her from the bed- he first real, smile she had seen _rom him in all these dreadful "My wife," Jim told the police- nen, proudly, and Lona felt herself bowing, her lips too stiff to "They've been asking about the accident," Jim sa i d to her then 'Its all a bit hazy to me. Maybe ·ou could tell them more about yhat really happened. You were here and saw it all." He hesitated and Lona swallowed trying to speak. '. "You mean j'ou're investigating.' she managed to say, trying to appear calm. Perhaps, after oil ... : routine matter, Mrs. t ,, u D · , Ul ° P°uceman assured her. Perhaps Jt would be better if you could stop in at the station soon. Tomorrow, say! We'd like your story." He made a polite motion to retire. "I'm afraid we've rather tired your husband here But you see, this bridge being a city project, we must check up" «e was faintly apologetic, and Lona wondered if her face was too white, her eyes too set. "I'll come in tomorrow first thing, she promised, gladly. 'T m sure I'll be pleased to tell vou anything I know that will help/' 'That will be fine. At 10 totr.jr- row, then. And we won't bother the patient here any more. Goodbv and good luck!" He directed this last to Jim as he donned his blue cap and nodded to his companion that he was ready to leave. Lona listened, motionless, until their footsteps had died awav down the corridor. Then she fluna herself suddenly into Jim's arms 3-2?

Sobs choked her, then, and she broke off. Unmindful of his condition and the resolves she had made not to distress him until he was stronger, she clung to him convulsively "1 thought they had come for you, Jim," she insisted again. For a long moment he held her silently, the feel of his arms comforting her, stilling her fears. "So you--know, then," he said, in a dead-sounding voice that brought her back to realization of what she was doing to him. "Yes, I know. Jim," she said, gently. "You talked when you were sick, you know. And I would have known, anyhow." Swiftly she i outlined to him what had hap- I pened, and his tense face tightened still more. For a long minute. when she had finished, he did not speak. Then the hopelessness in , his voice cut her like a knife. ' "It's run again, then," he asserted, bitterly. "Light out and leave everything behind. And it will lever be different! There'll always Je a--a detective somewhere. I shouldn't have married vou, girl' I was a fool! I thought "maybe-with you. I knew better, too. I wish I'd never have seen you--" "Jim, please--" "How can you forgive me? Dragging you into a mess like this. ·\fter all you'd been through al- ·eady . . . I shouldn't have done t. girl. I knew it all the time. But vou were so--so little and so help- , ess. and I--I couldn't help loving i ·o\i! I'm sorry, girl."' i "Jim. please don't talk like that. I I love you. Jim! I don't core what ! you've done. : "We've got to--quit, girl/' His i voice wr.s so low now. she had to ! bend over to hear it. There were tears in his eyes -- brown Tinv eyes. "I can't drag you through , things like this again and aguin. You've made friends here in : Brighton. You must stay here. I ' l l j --fade out as soon as I'm able. In another week I'll be out of this damned coop. It'll be the best wav We've got to do it--" "Jim. you mean--you want to leave me, Jim?" "I've got to, girl. I can't lot you go on year after year--dodging, always wondering when the ax will fall, always suspicious of everj- new face. I had no right to marry you in the first place. I knew- it, but 1 thought maybe--" "Jim, I won't do it. I love you' Do ycu hear that? Where you go I'm going. I don't care where it is. I've got to be with you. I can't live without you, Jim. Don't you see?" Her voice broke and there was pleading in her eyes. GOING TO TEU, HIM HERE TO R4RR NSUCT HIM |! y NO! TSMB oio«Y/Ot-i.MO* NosiR 1 . IP ewe's THAT ElTUSn.!
