COTTAGE CHEESE IS
Many of our country people eat new
cheese raw, not cheese made from sour
milk but cheese made from sweet milk;
this is sweet and palatable, but solid
and difficult to digest.
The cottage cheese being prepared
from- milk allowed to stand until a thick
bonny-clabber Is formed, then slightly
heated by the addition of hot water or
over a vessel of boiling water, the curd
strained out and mixed, with cream or
butter and seasonings Is a very nutrl
tlous and digestible food, very high In
protein, which gives It a flesh food value.
The ordinary sweet curd cheese is
made from sweet milk, the curd sepa
rated by the action of rennet, then
strained and pressed. This cheese is a
valuable and digestible food when prop
erly cooked; but If eaten raw should
only be taken in small quantities and
with bread, crackers, 4c
Cheese, because it Is nitrogenous (or
proteld) matter Is a muscle and tissue
building food, and is digested in the
stomach; because it Is also a condensed
food it requires the addition of a cer
tain amount of the starches found in po
tatoes, rice, macaroni and cereal prod
ucts to make It a well balanced ration.

This latest production of Werba
liuescber quite rivals Its twin sister. "The
Spring Maid,'' In wealth of comedy,
melodious music and spectacular presen
tation. 'The theme is from ,Bub Oder
Maedel. adapted by Harry B. Smith and
Raymond Feck, with music by Bruno
Oranlchstaedten, the youngest of the
Viennese waltz kings' who have set. the
world to whistling their tuneful melo
dies, and staged by George Marion..
As surprising as -the announcement
may sound In connection 'with musical
comedy, "The Rose Maid" tells a story
sufficiently human and coherent as to
elicit ( the genuine Interest of an audi
ence. The hero Is the young Duke of
Barchester, heir of a bachelor uncle.
The1 duke has succeeded in getting Into
the clutches of Dennis. Schmuke, and
Chumley, three loan brokers, .at whose
expense he Is giving' a little party all
bis own when his rich old uncle appears
unexpectedly on the scene. Sir John
Portman's Identity Is mistaken by the
loan sharks until they succeed In betray

upon the uncle prompter pretends to have
married and to have acquired an heir,
which furnishes excuse for his disinher

which costs Barchester the speedy loss
of his pleasure-loving friends and of his
Dances, the Princess Hilda, whose love

A delightful strain of sentiment is
mixed with the comedy of the piece,
particularly at the end of the first act.
when the debonair young duke, deserted
by his professed friends after a night of
revelry, which. It would appear, has cost
htm his Inheritance. Is left al&ne with
his faithful old bodyservant and Daphne,
whose father was a soldier in the regi
ment of Sir John Portmar-the little rose
girl, who secretly holds the duke's Image
in her heart.
The white-haired servant totters across
the room, and. with trembling hands,
wraps a cloak about his master, who
sings a farewell that Is full of pathos
and melody, to the wasted days that
have sped, while Daphne sinks heart
brokenly into a big chair in tho firelight
unable to control her sobs.
It Is to this rare combination of comedy
and pathos In "The Rose Maid" that we
owe the unusual musical transitions from
a most Cohanesque synclphated rag to
the hauntlngly beautiful strains of the
best there Is of the Vienna school. That
the mixture Is thoroughly delightful was
last night attested by the Joyous recep
tion which it was accorded by an ex
ceptionally large Monday night audience,
which applauded every feature of the
production from the delicious comedy of

ence that "white roses last longer than
red ones, her magnetic personality
would assuredly have turned the trick.
Arthur Clough waa cast last night as
the Duke of Barchester, a role which
gave him excellent solo numbers which
won htm repeated encores. Mr. Clough
has a tenor voice of wonderful range
clear and sympathetic As the young
duke he proved himself a meritorious
actor, ss well as a singer of ability.
R. E. Graham, as the uncle, handled
the characterization capably, while Ju
liette Dika presented a clever and con
vincing Countess Bertram, under whose
chaperonage a group of beautiful Amer
ican heiress tour Europe, ostensibly to
see the world In reality to buy titles.
Karl Krusada, cast as the proprietor of
the hotel at Ostend. furnished a violin

"A Fool There Was," Robert Hllllard's
world-famous drama, suggested, as sll
theatergoers know, by Rudyard Klpllng'a
poem, "The Vampire," drew a capacity
audience at the New Academy last
night This marvelous play by Porter
Emerson Browne, as presented last nfght
a j an absolute duplicate of the one used
by Robert Milliard for four years.
Of soul-stlrrlng theme. Intense situa
tions and gripping story, with thrills and
tears, from the most nerve-racking ten
sion to a flippant discourse on modern
conditions of everyday life. It was a pres
entation nrst class in every respect by
an -exceptional company, marking It as
one of the strongest plays seen at this
playhouse for years.
The prominence of the drama haa made
the story too well known to require rep
etition, so suffice it to say that It Is
the weird story which Kipling's poem
tells, the cynical wisdom of a better
man of the world, the cry of a lost soul,
and the attitude of the world as It look
ed at the picture.
Much may be said of the excellent por
trayal by this exceptionally adequate
company. The cast la headed by Will
