Nowadays scientists have perfected a process which speeds up the curing by a number of months. Well-ripened cheese, food experts point out, will always melt readily. Unless too high temperatures are used, ripe cheese will not become tough and stringy while cooking. Like meat, cheese should be cooked at a low temperature. Smaller packages, weighing from '£ pound to 2 pounds, have become popular on the market within the last few years. They come wrapped in transparent film or tinfoil. ^Ranking next in order of preference are cream and Ncufchatel— both soft type cheeses. Both eome wrapped in tinfoil or cellophane packages and are best when eaten within a few days after making. Rising rapidly to third place in popularity have been the Italian type cheeses.

That's big return on the small cost of a Case hammer mill. Let us 'show you how these low-priced mills with Hi-Suction fan grind cooler and faster with less power. See the 8-edged hammer tips that give 8-fold grinding life before renewal is needed. ReJnbanft-Gase Im Italy. Today, domestic tyce Italian cheeses are on the 'market—mainly Parmesan and Bel- Paese. The first is a very hard type cheese which is usually sold in grated form. The latter is a soft type cheese. Fourth in popularity is the mild looking, nut-flavored swiss cheese with its characteristic holes. But homemakers have still other cheeses to choose from for variation in their meals. In addition to the uncounted types of process cheese, "cheese foods" and "spreads," there are. several types which formerly were imported— now made here, Perhaps the best known are roquefort and camembert—both French type cheese Edam and Gouda from, Holland are semihard, yellow cheese, sold, in the familiar round, red packages. Lim burger and liedcrkranz, too, have their place in the cheese picture. The number of sheep and lambs on feed for market as of January 1, 1948, dropped 16 percent from last year—to the smallest number since 1928. One hundred hens will eat more than iVi tons of feed a year. ^ . CENSUS PICTURES AVERAGE FARMER The average Iowa farmer Is n man 47 years,old who lives in an electrically lighted house and has many of the comforts of modern living including automobiles, tractors, telephones, radios and considerable plumbing. These are facts brought out in the second statistical volume of the 1946 Census of Agriculture which has just been distributed by the Department of Agriculture. Statistics on age, sex, home and farm equipment are all tabiilatec in the volume and show that Iowa farmers are out in front in many categories. The largest age class is that from 45 to 54 when all farmers are counted including both owners and tenants. 'It seems that a farmer has to get a little older before he becomes full owner of his place. The average age of owners was 53. Tenants are the younger men. The largest age class among tenants was 25 to 34. There are more boys than girls on the farm. In the class below 14 years of age there were .8% more boys than girls. There are 1.8"% more men than women on the farm. Iowa farmers have 45.5 acrea per capita to farm. 165 YEARS. When Billy Bockes, former Grundy county sheriff, poses for a picture with his brother Simon, the two men represent a total of 16& years. Billy Bockes is 85;.his kid brother is a mere 80. $100. Ben DeVall, of near LeMars, found a quarter in the road last fall. Recently he sold the coin; dated 1845, for $100.
