Antnony Stewart A CROSSROADS CHEESE FACTORY NEAR BEETOWN SERVES OUTLYING DAIRY FARMS Here the farmer unloads his gleaming cans of milk and cream, then, drawing up to the wooden tank, reloads with whey to be fed to his hogs. Early miners, overturning a bee tree near here for honey, found lead under the roots and dug a mine on the spot; hence Beetown's name. But lead mining is now largely a thing of the past, and neatly painted cheese factories are typical. SF. W . Inversetti SNOW GARLANDS-RARE SPECIMENS OF A RARE PHENOMENON As a gentle breeze shifted the semi-wet snow off the arm of the clothes reel and onto the cross ropes, the temperature evidently dropped just enough to hold it together and form this ropelike mass. The unusual formation was photographed at Ripon, Wisconsin, in January, 1936.
