EIGHTEEN MASON CITY GJLOJBE-GA2ETTE, JANUARY 9 1936 HOGS STEADY UNDER HEAVY RECEIPTS RUN LARGEST IN MORE THAN YEAR Farmers Rush 32,000 Swine to Chicago to Get In on Higher Prices. CHICAGO, Jan. 9. (/P--The heaviest receipts in more than a year f|iled to shake the hog market today. With hog marketings at all the major slaughtering centers in the middle west heavier than at any time during 1935 as farmers rushed their available swine into the trade to lake advantage of the recent pi-ice upturn, the markets displayed unusual steadiness. Chicago had 32,000 fresh hogs, including 15,000 direct, the largest one day supply in more than a year and bringing the week's total to record breaking proportions since 1934. Normally this would give the market an extremely weak tone but prices were only steady to 10 cents lower than Wednesday's average. An early 15 to 25 cents decline was practically regained and the early top was ?10. Market ob- ·=ervers attributed the strength to the fact that packers were able to pay steady if not higher prices for sreatly increased receipts because ot the voiding of the processin- tax. Cattle were more active today and tetter grade kinds had more strength. The general market was steady to strong although few steers were available to sell above $11- Sarly bids for fat lambs were 15 25 cents lower.

Senator Carey Says AAA Decision Dooms Townsend Program WASHINGTON, Jan. 9.--The supreme court's AAA decision makes congressional enactment of the Townsend old age plan unconstitutional according to Senator Robert D. Carey of Wyoming. He said the court's decision left no doubt that the provisions of tie Townsend plan were in direct conflict with the constitution. "Decisions of tie Supreme Court," said Carey, "must be' accepted as interpretations of the constitution and considering my oath as a United States senator 'to preserve, protect, and defend the constitution, I could not, unless I ignored this oath, support the Townsend old age pension plan. I feel it becomes my duty, £3 well as others who believe in old age pensions and in the constitution, to co-operate in finding a way under the constitution whereby those who are in need can be adequately provided for."

NEW YORK, Jan. 9. JP~Railroads rolled to the fore today in the stock market along with a number of industrial issues. The list as a whole presented a mixed appearance. Activity was curtailed after brisk trading at the opening. Carrier shares advanced in mid- afternoon after some hesitation, taking the leadership from oils, farm equipments and metals, which, however, still showed substantial improvement late in the trading day. Motors and amusement stocks improved fractionally. Aircrafts slipped back. A few industrials had wide upward swings, including Air Reduction, up nearly 9 points. Gains of Fractions. Gainers of fractions to 2 points or so included Santa Fe, Reading, Delaware Hudson, R-K-O. Case, International Harvester, TJ. S. Smelting, National Biscuit, and Standard Oil of Indiana. Losses of around a point were suffered by American Telephone, Consolidated Gas, Douglas, United Aircraft, Bohn Aluminum and Peoples Gas. The late tone was irregular. Transfers approximated 2,650,000 shares. A rise in certain copper products prices appeared to help the metals. Foreign exchanges gained sharply against the dollar. Foreign Exchanges Strong. Strength in foreign exchanges got under way earlier in Europe, after the Bank of France had cut its discount rate to 4 per cent from 5 per cent. There were -also rumors in some financial quarters abroad of a possible further devaluation of the dollar. These were scouted by Secretary of the Treasury Morgen- thau, who joined banking circles here in attributing their origin to speculators. The talk apparently had its effect in speculative market quarters, for the gold stocks staged a. minor boomlet. Oils appeared to be still in the process of discounting the crude oil price increase announced yesterday, and Wall street talk of further firming in the price structure later. Much of the buying was said to have been for cash in this group.

October MURDER UPSTAIRS By ADAM BLISS CHAFFER 43 Janed walked again lo the window and pulled the curtains closer together. Then she went to the door, opened Uiat, faced around and closed it, softly. Her face wore an expression of grim seriousness. When she sat down opposite me at the table and clasped her hands on the walnut surface, I noticed that two of her lovely nails were bitten down to the quick. "No one can hear us, can they?" I shook my head. The walls of the library are very thick, doubly thick with the rows of Morton's books which I somehow had managed to keep. The little jade dagger was near her clasped hands. "It's about my brother, Mrs. Penny. You didn't know I had a brother, did you? I've been wanting to tell you but I couldn't. I couldn't tell anyone here. He's four years older than I am, and a darling." A sob came to her throat, and a tear rolled down one cheek. "And he didn't do what they thought he did--he didn't because he told me he didn't and I'd believe Jerry before anyone else in the world." Another tear fell, and another, but she made no effort to wipe them away. "Who are 'they', Janet? And what was your broUier supposed to have done?" "The police in Seattle. Jerry worked in a bank there, and I worked for a lawyer. Same kind of work I do now. We had been alone since our father died five years before. We didn't even remember our mother--I guess that's why we've always been so close. I know I told you I came from New York, but I didn't. "I've been there, and I know the city, so I said I'd worked and lived there. Mr. Brown thinks I worked for Mr. Hulbert in New York, but 1 didn't. Mr. Hulbert was a friend of my father's, and when I wanted to get away from Seattle, I wrote and asked him if he would say I had worked for him. He was glad to. 1 didn't go to New York. I came here --I don't know why, except that I didn't know a soul in town, airf 1 did in New York and Chicago." She paused and again I asked her what her brother had done. She needed prompting. "Jerry, was teller in a bank in Seattle," she went on, at last. "He was young for the responsibility, but we thought he had a great future. One day, just six months ago, his accounts were found 550,000 short. "Jerry didn't even know about it, because whoever had meddled with them had done a good job of covering up. Well, Jerry was arrested, Mrs. Penny, and he was as surprised as anyone. He was flabbergasted. He never stole a dime from anybody in his life, and he was accused of taking $50,000! The police took him to jail and he was indicted by the grand jury. It was all done so quickly I could hardly get my bearings. "They let me see him once in a while, and he told me repeatedly, every time I saw him, that he hadn't taken the money. But he couldn't get anyone else to believe him. Even the lawyer I was working for said the case was pretty hopeless. He wouldn't touch it. I finally got somebody--but before the trial, Jerry escaped. He'd-told me how he was going to make a try for it--because he was framed and if he came to trial he wouldn't have a chance. He gave me an address to write to if he escaped, and the name he would use. I begged him not to, but I could see how he felt about it. The terrible disgrace and the injustice of being sent to prison for a crime he never committed. "He got away and there was a great hue and cry. Everybody thought he was more guilty than ever, just as I had told him. At first the police came to me, thinking I had helped him escape. I tried to tell them that I hadn't, but of course they wouldn't believe me. They watched me every minute. Opened my mail, tapped my telephone, Mr. Martin, the man I worked for, finally let me go because of their annoyance. "They were sure I'd lead them to Jerry, because they knew how close we were and how much we loved each other. We always went every place together in Seattle. I wrote Jerry under the name he had given me 'and the address, and told him not to write to me under any circumstances. That I had to manage things differently. You probably didn't hear much about the search for Jerry here, because you're so far away, but in the northwest it was a terrible man-hunt. You'd think Jerry had murdered a dozen people in cold blood. "I knew I couldn't stay in Seattle any longer, and keep in touch with my brother, so I left town. I had to plan carefully--I had a little money left over from father's estate --5500, and with the aid of some friends, I got away from the officer who was following me. Even my friends didn't know where I planned to go. I've never written to them since, I decided not .to change my name--it really is Janet Bell--but I wanted to lose'myself for a while so I could see how Jerry was getting along, and find out if I could help him. I was afraid he might need money. "I got a job almost as soon as I landed here with references from Mr. Hulbert in New York. And I came here to live on Mr. Brown's suggestion. I wrote to Jerry immediately, and heard from him by air mail. That was three months after he had been arrested, and two months since he had escaped. "He has a job, under his new- name, and is getting along well, and he's talking again about his future, as we used to talk in Seattle. He was almost crazy because he could not write to me while I was in Seattle. Since I've been here we have corresponded twice a week, long, grand letters', and wondered how long it would be before we could see each other. I was the cautious one. I didn't want to take any chances with Jerry's freedom. The letters would have to be enough for a while, until we were certain Jerry was not in danger. I thought that if things went right that late this summer, when I had a vacation, we might see each other for a few days. That is if Jerry had a vacation, too." Janet sighed, and I touched her clasped hands reassuringly. "As the days and months passed I thought Jerry was safer and safer. I didn't dream anyone in the house knew who I was, or that I heard from Jerry. My letters from him were always waiting for me on the hall table when I got home at night, in plain envelopes. Jerry never put his name or address in his. "If for any reason he suddenly had to change an address, we'd arranged a little code--I had, I mean, in the first letter I wrote him from here. He promised to use it. 'The last letter from him that I found on the hall table last week said he was going to move, and he would send his new address in the next letter. I never wrote him at his office, but always at his home. I looked for the letter Monday night when I returned from work, but there wasn't any for me. I was worried because his letters usually reach me Monday nights and Thursday nights--I think I came to you before dinner and asked if there had been a letter for me. You said yes, you thought so. Remember?" I nodded, although Monday night seemed eons away. "That made me worry all the more, for fear the letter had been misplaced. When I got upstairs about 10:30, I found a note under my door. 1 thought at first it was Jerry's letter, but it wasn't. It was a note from--from Mr. Darien. From the note I realized that he knew my secret. The note said that Jerry Bell's sister was to come and see him the following noon at his office. "Well, I was crazy with anxiety, I burned the note. I paced the floor. I didn't know what to do. Finally, I decided to go to his room that night and ask him how much he knew and what he meant. I couldn't wait until noon Tuesday."
