Rock Island has been the host of many dis tinguished gatherings, state and national, but never has the spirit of the people been swelled with a greater gratification than in welcoming 1 the state encampment of the nights Templar of Illinois, assembling now or annual conclave. The Knights Templar is one of the greatest orders on the face of the globe, historically aa well as from a spectacular standpoint. Based upon the sacred principles of Christianity and chivalry in teaching and precept, it is inspired by a nobility of character that has endured through the ages, and brought to its ranks in-r creasing numbers year by year. . . Rock Island takes pride in her home com maadery and as a city is happy to join with its members in welcoming the knights and com manderies throughout the state,' with the 'wish that their stay in Rock Island may be In the, highest sense pleasant, and of good result.

Selina is sometimes spelled Sele na and the, latter shows clearly the influence of its interesting origin. It was adopted in England under the mistaken impression that it re produced the French Celine, an error which later proved fortunate since it introduced a charming name fitted to the fairest English maid. Selina .signifies "moon." Selene was the Greek term for the moon and named another moon goddess. separate from Artemis, or Diana. It seems to have been a favorite with goddesses and sirens and other beautiful women of early his tory.

The mystoay of how the holes get into Swiss cheese, which .aa so long baffled .the cheese experts ot this country has been solved. As a consequence, 'America is pitching Into the Swiss cheese Industry on a large scale. Already, two car loads of American-Swiss cheese, riddled with holes just like those made in the Alps, have been ship ped to Switzerland itself; so that by now tho news of America's lat est Dfolect must be nretty well circulatedShroughout the original home ot the cheese with tne noie. It is too soon for us to get any official word as to how the Swiss are taking this invasion into, their favorite industry. ' It believed that they will be somewhat alarm d. for the United States has al wave been v a large consumer oi Switzerland's best But if we can make it satisfactorily for ourselves, and enough ot it the Alpine cheese may have to look about for new customers. It yon are not a Swiss ehoato addict, you may not realize that this delicacy has quite a hold on the American people. Switzerland ships 20,000,000 pounds of it to this country every year, and Swiss cheeseries overhere produce an other 20,000,000, though up to now a good deal of the domestic prod uct has been equipped with a very j inferior grade of holes. The formula for ' making the cheese has never been a secret, but it .was always supposed that the air or grass of Switzerland con tained some magic ingredient nec essary to produce the best holes, and. until recently the results ob tained by cheese-makers In this country have served to confirm the Impression. v . Holes Must be Bight. Holes, or eyes as they are tech nically called, are so important in Swiss cheese because they are an indication of good flavor. If the eyes are large, round, glossy at the edges, and evenly distributed, the cheese has all the earmarks of a masterpiece. If the holes are flat. small, or aitogetner lacking, tne cheese is likely to be deficient in flavor. " Some years ago the dairy divis ion of the department of agricul ture decided to find out why our home grown Swiss cheese lacked the proper characteristics,: as it so often did. Inquiries put to Swiss dairymen in Wisconsin showed that the Swiss cheese makers knew only the formula to ' follow and nothing of the chemistry involved. They attributed the less satisfac tory results achieved in this coun try to the different surroundings, though in Wisconsin they found conditions most similar to their native land. Even a visit to Switzerland re vealed no sure fire way of getting the holes into the cheese. So the cheese experts went back to their labpratorles. From a first class imported Swiss cheese they ex tracted several thousand kinds of bacteria, and each of these bugs they put to the test to see which one was the hole-maker. Different I mediums had to be used, which complicated matters, but finally, after 12 years, the elusive bug was located. It must not be inferred that the bugs mentioned eat their way methodically through the cheese, leaving a train of carefully arrang ed holes. Gases are produced by the action of certain bacteria in the curds, and the holes result from the liberation of the gas. In Switzerland, where this par ticular kind of cheese has been made for so many years, the prgan Isms which develop the best holes and flavor have become plentiful. Whether they .originate in the air, milk, or grass is not thoroughly understood. In this country they 8M 1842 Mary Putman Jacobi, famous V pnysiciaa and medical writ er, born In London.

What is the origin of the expression "buncombe?" C. H. A. This word, meaning empty talk, or pointless speech-making, has its origin in the name of a county in North Carolina, and came about in this wise: "Years ago, in congress, the member from this district arose to address the, house without -any extraordinary powers, in matter or manner, to interest the audience.

Roquefort mold is produced bj means of - the peculiar caret, in southern '' France. These citm hare been formed By the sllp;in rocks at the base ot the mounuinA Currents of cool air circulw steadily through the undergrouid 1 grottoes. Keeping tne atmosphere ' damp and fresh. It takes ti months to get a Roquefort eaten ready for market, and a good put of this time the cheese spends on shelves in the caves, acquiring thi important mold. In France,, the mold is started by a special kind of bread which is- moistened, allowed to,, mold, dried and ground into powder. This powder is sprinkled over each layer of curds. Holes are punched iH the layer, so that the mold from the bread, aided by the dampnesi of the atmosphere, spreads through the cheese until the entire layer is veined with bluish green threidi of mold. The government scientists start ed their mold by taking some from a piece of French cheese and in-, serting it into a loaf of bread This produced very good breif crumbs, but America had nothing like the caves of Roquefort Tie scientists tried ordinary refrijer ation, but the mold failed to devel op properly, and in many cases did not develop at all. . Reproduced lave Conditions. Finally, they realized that the exact . cave conditions tempera ture, humidity and ventilation must be reproduced artificially, and after years of experimental work a special air-conditioning ap paratus was perfected which tooty the place of the caves. Besides the caves of Roquefort, the French thought that sheeps" milk was a requisite for making Roquefort cheese. Half a million sheeD are pastured near Roquefort just to provide milk for the neartj( cheeseries. Dairymen here tried cows' milk as a basis for Roquefort chew. and it was successful. With the equipment developed by the gov ernment, Roquefort cheese has ln the last year been made commer-i. cially from cows' milk for the ftrst time in this country. It has been put on the market to be soy in competition with French chetie and is sold with good results. Our homemade Roquefort chettn is regarded by some connoisseur! as a little too golden or classic beauty, but this is a trifling Haw and has no appreciable effect upon the taste. - . The work of the dairy division has aroused a good deal of interest in the cheese making. Several new Swiss factories have been started in California, while Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, always centers the American cheese industry, tm new hope for America aominauni must be supplied by cultures until the cheese business of the worli OeaT Mrs. Thompson: I am go- ing-lo write a few lines to the lady who-signs herself Maime: Dear Sister: Where there is a will there is always a way, but when you marry don't just marry tor a pretty house painted white with a large yard and think you can start living on a large scale.
