FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 28 • 1936 HOG PRICES MOUNT 15 TO 25 GENTS TOP AT CHICAGO REACHES$10,65 Wholesale Pork Reflects Sharply Advancing Live Hog Values. CHICAGO, (ff) — Hog prices mounted 15 to 20 cents Monday to a new peak of $10.65 a hundredweight, highest December price in a decade and the highest price paid since Mid-September. The upturn was influenced by the comparatively siwill volume of receipts despite the fact that there has been no market for three days. Evidence that the usual fall liquidation of hogs, which was stepped up this yc-ar oy feed ccsU., has ended was a buying incentive. In September producers began flooding the livestock market with hogs, knocking prices down around S- a hundredweight in some cases, but in the past week receipts have fallen off. Advancing hog prices were reflected sharply for the first time in wholesale pork quotations. Sellers were asking in some cases 2 cents a pound higher for loin cuts and the wholesale market range was 16 to 19 cents a pound, highest in nearly two months. Steer and yearling prices showed little change but stockers, she stock r.nd bulls, which were scarce, gained 25 cents in some cases. The catle market top ivas S13. Fat lamb quotations were little changed pl'hough sellers asked higher. Top asking prices were $9.50 and better. Wholesale beef carcass prices advanced with pork loins, gaining about '•_• cent a pound. The range was 9 10 18' 2 cents. Hog Markets I MIDWEST HOGS 1 Hog prices at midwest markets Mon- !

NEW YORK, (/P) — Leading stocks shifted about erratically in Monday's market as traders returned Irom their prolonged Christmas celebration without pronounced convictions one way or the other. Buying support was given some of the oils, rails, rubbers, aircrafts and specialties, but many of the "pivotals" drifted downward. Near the final hour uneven trends prevailed. Transfers were around 1,750,000 shares. Wall street analysts again pointed to cross-currents having to do with year end selling to establish both profits and losses for income tax returns.

To a large audience the Baptist Players presented a' Christmas play in three acts entitled, "The Sandals." It was written and directed by one of the young members of the First Baptist church, Lewis B. Cummings, grandson of the late Judge A. B. Cummings. The scene opened on "The Man" (Joseph) and "The Woman," (Mary) resting before Rachael's Tomb on the Jerusalem-Bethlehem road. They meet a man in beggars clothes, who tells his life story. nam°ly, that he has given away nis wealth, vowing that he would not touch money until the Christ-child should have been been born. Harold Ashley made a good Joseph, self-effacing and kind as he is pictured in the Gospel record, while Marjorie McArthur was adorable as Mary, the Mother. Robert Buchanan as the beggar, gave a good representation of the character. He also doubled as a Roman soldier in the second act and added a touch of humor as he was awakened on guard duty, by Mart h a, the inn-keeper's wife, (Tressa McFarlin)." Ruth, her daughter :and Samuel, her husband, the inn-keeper, were excellently portrayed by Mildred Gaffney and James BurnetT. His lament at not knowing who the couple were, "The Man" and "The Woman" was well done. Present Slumber Song._ Deeply impressive was the rendition" of the "Slumber Song,' : ot 'The Madonna," by Ruth Dougail. who represented an angel in the last act, assisted by Bernice Bray and Maude Wilson. Shepherds were impersonated by Warren Brown, Dick Carter and Sam Ervin, while the Wise Men who come so slowly dov.n the center aisle bringing gifts were represented by Ian Eberl, Edward Duke and Clarence Van Meter. The silver offering at the close was taken by Earl Fladness. James Brown, Lila Seybert and Katherine Frost. After the expressions of felicitations were given the cast and author, the group was entertained at the home of the Rev. and Mrs. J. Lee Lewis and wife, with Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Barnett, 121 Sixth street northwest, assisting. On "Christian Science." "Christian Science" was the sub- WALTER S. MASTERMAN CHAPTER 34. "I hope you are r.ot badly hurt, Mr. Reid?" Lady Severinge said. "Colonel Graham tells me that you fell and injured your arm." "Nothing to make a fuss about," Reid replied. "But this is a terrible business about Miss Lawrence and the children." "I have been afraid of it ever since Sir Henry was murdered. Of course, there must be some connection, but who would have thought that Miss Lawrence, with her quiet manners, would twve been a party to such a crime!" "I'don't believe for a moment she is," Reid said loyally. "I wish I could think so, but how could she have been spirited away without shouting or making a struggle- for it? And the children would have made an awful fuss, unless she had persuaded them to go willingly. It seems impossible to trust anyone nowadays." "I am certain that you can trust Miss Lawrence," he said warmly. "As a matter of fact, she was only staying on here because she feare;i that some such attack might be made on the children.' To Reid's surprise, Lady Sev- eringe's manner changed. "You men are all the same—a pretty face and romance, and you are taken in at once. If it had been the housekeeper, Mrs. Thornton, you would have suspected her because she was ugly and had a vicious tongue, but this soft-looking .-.niss with great eyes—I've no pa- Reid remained silent. It did not take much intuition to guess that her outburst was due to her suspicions of Colindale, and her jealousy on account of his conduct. It was best, he felt, to say no more, and Lady Severinge had stopped speaking abruptly,, as though ashamed at. her sudden heat. "James tells me that Mr. Seldon will be here this afternoon," he said, closing his eyes. "I am sorry," she said contritely. "You are ill, and ought not to be worried. Are you sure you would rather not come to the Abbey?" "I shall be all right here—I'm used to roughing it. I hope to be up again in a day or two." Jam.-js shook his head. "I'm afraid it will take longer than that," he said, and Reid seemed tc detect a hidden meaning in the woids. Colonel Graham broke in.

The Golden Text was from II John 1.9, "He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father -ind the Son." The Lesson-Setmon comprised quotations from the Bible and from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health .with Key to the Scriptures" Baker Eddy. One of the Bible citations read: "Therefore I will judge you, 0 house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord God. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin. Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord God: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye" (Ezek. 18-30-32). Among the selections from the Christian Science textbook was the _ folknving: "We acknowledge God's { O jt un tjl he had either cleared it ful assistant for James." "It will be a relief to me," Lady Severinge added. Reid found the strain of talking was telling on him. The pain was now a dull ache, throbbing snd burning, and he was growing light-headed. "I will send up what you want by Mai-y| 1>om the Abbey—James, perhaps ' you will see to that?" "i shall make it a personal responsibility," the butler said solemnly. They went out, leaving him alone, and before long he was raving in delirium. * * * Selden's car drew up at the end of the bridge in the afternoon, and Hutchins came forward to greet him. "Something fresh, I suppose?" the young detective asked cheerfully. "I don't understand these modern methods," Hutnhins grumbled. "I always understood that when a Yard man took up a case he stuck forgiveness of sin in the destruction of sin and the spiritual understanding that casts out evil as unreal. But the belief in sin is punished so long as the belief lasts." (p. 497). Produce MASON CITY—For Monday Cash Quotations by E. G.

"I haven'; been idle, Hutchins," Selden grinned, "but we each have oLr own methods, and I thought vcu would have arrived at some conclusion." "Things are a darned sight worse." He proceeded to tell of the latest developments with some considerable detail while Selden listened attentively, "Colonei Graham and I have been all over the Abbey—I never saw sneh a rabbit warren in my life You could hide a dozen people in it, and there are doors and passages everywhere—it's most confusing, and easy to lose your way at night when you can't get your bearings by seeing out of the windows." They walked together over the bridge and into the court. The rain had ceased, but the pavement was wev, and water dripped depressingly from the yew tree. "I wonder they didn't grow grass here," Selden said inconsequently. '1 suppose it wouldn't grow with that yew tree," Hutchins replied indulgently. "I suppose that must be it." He wheeled around on Hutchins. •What is your ides about this latest development?" "I believe that butler James knows more than he will say—he's pretty deep; and I shouldn't be surprised if he and that girl, Miss Lawrence, weren't in it together." "Come, Inspector, you don't think they v, ere in collusion in the murder of Sir Henry Severinge?" "I don't know, I'm sure. It's a strange thing that he's been practically master of the house for i years, and now he's been left ail the money, I hear:" "Not quite all." Selden smiled, "but of course quite a sum. But tell me, what did you propose to do before I came?" "Colonel Graham suggested using his bloodhounds again. They were ,iil right before, although they couldn't throw any light on the actual murder." "It's worth thinking about," Sel- dtn said guardedly. "By the way, i hear that Reid has taken Colin- dale's place.' "A nice mess he's made—and mind you, Selden, I'm going to follow up the career of Master Reid. It seems a bit fishy to me the way he came down here and has established himself in tha house." Hutchins recounted what he knew, and what Gr^hzni had told him, to Selden's secret amusement. "Where is Colonel Graham?" Selden asked. "Is he still here? I would like to have a word with him." "He's gone to the village to see Hucks, the landlord of the 'Bull.' I suggested that Hucks should come here at nights. He's a tough customer and a bruiser, and it wouldn't be a bad thing if he acted as night watchman." "I think that's good suggestion," Helden agreed heartily. "It would be much better than employing a police officer." "I don'i see that I can do more here, then," Hutchins said. "I suppose you won't be running off again, now that this has happened?" "I shall stay and see it through, Hutchins; but what steps have you taken?" "I've ordered a thorough search to be made of the grounds and neighborhood, and we have issued A description of the missing girl and children. If they are any- who 1 -i near here we shall have them." "Good! And this fellow Reid, is he here?" "He's in bed at his cottage," Hutchins said grimly, "and likely to be for a bit. The doctor has seen him. I believe he's a bit light-headed. By the way, Selden, if I were you, I wouldn't let that butler, James, have much intercourse with Reid. I don't trust either of them." , Til have a talk with him." Selden said. "And Lady Severinge— after all, she's mistress here, and we shoHd consult her about things." "Oh, she doesn't count," Hutchins said with contempt. "James is the virtual master of the house. But, of course, I saw her, as she had phoned for me." "You got nothing out of her?" "She pretends she knows nothing. On the whole, I think she's telling the truth.' "I'm just going to have a look round on my own," Selden said. "I shall see you later." After the inspector's departure, Selden strolled round the house, now quite deserted except for the servants' quarters. The servants were badly scar^ and would not come out of their own part unless with a direct order. His inspection 1 took some time, but there was a ",ook of quiet satisfaction on his face when he returned to the gateway and, crossing the bridge, walked thoughtfully over to Reid'.; cottage. He found the :urtains drawn and the sick man impatiently tossing on the bed. He looked up as Selden came in. "Feeling bad?" "Thank the Lord you've come. Selden. I couldn't much more of this. have stood Those bites hurt like the devil: the doctor insisted on cauterizing them again, and he's given me some injection or otter. But it's not that that.'s worrying me." "You are well enough to talk?" "If I didn't I should get up right away, and to hell with the doctor. I have been waiting for you to roll up." "Good, then we can discuss matters, for I'm none too easy in my mind. Our good friend Hutchins suspects everyone, including you and James, and is getting busy. But that's not the worst." "What is it?" Reid said, half sitting up and dreading' the next words. "Colonel Graham has suggested using his bloodhounds." In the dim light Selden saw an expression of terror come to Reid's face.
