FEBRUARY 5 1 MAD LAUGHTER A Thrilling Mystery Story By MILES BURTON .and Mr. Herridge trusted that it would not be noticeable in the fog. Then he set off, arms folded, hea-J bent, trying to assume an innocent air of contemplation. It was a weary business. It seemed'to hinvthat such infrequent passers-by as he met gazed at him with hostile curiosity, and · followed him with their eyes as he disappeared into the mist. His ears, were constantly on . the alert for the measured footfall of a policeman. Every constable in London seemed to be abroad that night. Several times Mr. Herridge was compelled to turn suddenly and dodge up spmi! side street till the guardian of the law had passed. More than once, after one.or other of these detours, he lost his way and panic seized him at the thot/.that the last vestiges of trie fog might clear away before he could reach his. goal. Hoxton appeared to him as an Ultima Thule, scarcely to be attained in the course .of a lifetime. And, even when he got there? He moistened" his lips nervously as he considered .how hf should approach Ginger Murdoch, and what reply that uncertain-tempered gentleman would make to his representations.

OS 1 )--Livestock, grading goo'd to choice, or... those kinds in which outside buyers were interested, had a reliable outlet in the early trading today without serious danger of price reductions. But plain steers, heavy hogs and in- between grade sheep, .which were the last to sell yesterday in the slow closing- markets, were threatened with further losses. , Light and medium weight- hogs we're held 15-250 higher because of the .curtailment of receipts, which dropped the run today to 27,000, against 40,000 a week*ago. The elev en principal markets also^ had onl\ 99,000 head, .compared b 113,800 last Thursday. Buyers _were willing to pay $7.90 to 58.00 for choice 16' to 190 Ib. lights, but bids .at tha range were rejected. Packers hai 8,000 dr'ects of the run 'and then were 4,000 holdbvrs. , . Demand for beef was no 'bette; :nor was the run of 7,000 cattle un usually small, but the routine need! of local packers, and a few outsidi shipping Borders were expected to account for the bulk of the supply without much difficulty. Yearlinj and weighty steers selling at $9.5' and up sold first at firm prices, in line with the improvement of the day before. Shippers covering their, orders for top-grade fat lambs at steadj prices featured r the early lamb mar r ket. Packers were less eager to buy, and took only a few at $8v25@ 8.50 at the outset. The run Jacally of. 12,000 was the same as last Thursday's and fully ample for all needs, as the bulk were of in- between grades, including a few loads from the west., Ifogs closed slow at early 30®15c nd- vancfl. 1 Cattle .finished uneven, ranging from strong on'better grade fed steers and year- Ing? to -slow and weak oh others. Sheep closed slow generally 15tfi'2!1c down. Central to Play Luther Five Friday in Crucial , Cage Tilt.

The market made little headway until the lost hour when the trend pointed upward It was simply a repetlllon of the perform- ,ahce in Ihe two preceding sessions except lor the fact that Wednesday's advance pre sented a much broader front and Includid many of the representative , issues which have done little o f , late. News developments were mixed, yet the fact, that unfavorable items made little Impression emphasized the belief that much of the news now appearini has already been discounted.

IIP}--Hav- ing permitted bulls to struggle unsuccessfully with the stock market for three days, bears lost patience today and dropped a few selling orders which jolted the list out of its narrow .trading area into a substantial decline. The meager advances of the past three days were largely .lost, as prices skidded back 2 to 6 points. The market remained merely a professional trading affair, however, for bears were no more successful in dislodging general selling, than bulls had been able to Inspire any extensive buying. · TJ. S. Steel slipped back 3 points to its low point of the new year. Westinghouse ~aud Columbian Car _bon lost about* as much, and share losing 2 points or so included Amer icau Telephone, Bethlehem Stee American Can, Macy, Underwoo Elliott, Johns Manville, Atchison Norfolk and Western, America Water Works, and Byers. Issue showing wider losses, averagini from 4 to 6 points, included U.

'^ Chemical issues-were influencec by further reductions in the 'price, of their products, notably Carbon Black, and Sulphuric Acid. The oils were sluggish, but ap neaped to be well sold out, as re norts of gasoline price cutting in Denver and Detroit, as well as dividend' cuts by Standard of Nebras ka and Ohio Oil. had little influence on the market for these shares.
