EIGHTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 7 '-,· BEST CATTLE STAY AT NEW PEAKS LOWER GRADES SHOW LOSSES Hogs Strong to 10 Cents Higher With Top Still at $10.60. CHICAGO, (/P)--Better grade cattle clung to Wednesday's peak levels in an active trade Thursday but lower grades showed losses of 25 cents in some instances. With average steer prices at the highest point in 19 months, buyers bought cautiously in attempting to satisfy only moderate sized 1rade requirements. Thursday's top of 513.85 per hundredweight, highest in 11 months, was paid tor both y e a r l i n g s a n d mediumweight steers. So far this week steers sold at an average . of approximately $10.85 per hundredweight, the highest average level since May 25, 1935. This compared with $9.75 a year ago, when cattle were selling at a-wider price range and quality was much plainer, accounting for the comparatively low average. Hogs were strong to 10 cents higher, but the top clung to $10.00, matching that paid early Wednesday. Wednesday was the first anniversary o£ the supreme court decision which removed the S2.25 per hundredweight processing tax as a part of packers' live cost of hogs. Drove cost Wednesday was $10.31, nearly $1 higher than a year ago. The day after the court decision, the average cost of hogs jumped 71 cents to $10.06. Until recently, wholesale dressed pork prices have been maintained substantially below quotations a year ago, but within the last week, advances of ?3 to $3.50 per hundredweight on loins carried the market close to the level prevailing a year ago, choice pork loins, however, lost another 59 cents Thursday. Lambs met with broad demand again Thursday and prices tended upward. Sellers asked as high as $10.90 and above for choice Iambs. Local Livestock MASON CITY--For Thursday HOGS Hog prices steady.

"Mr. Reid was telling me about his rash flight from the cottage, but you know the old saying --where duty calls--or is it beauty? Anyway, it was just as well that he was there, though he ruined all my plans." He grinned broadly at the astonished men. "But I don't understand what is happening," Reid cried excitedly.

NEW YORK, (/P)--Buying forces ,vept over the stock market hursday and whirled prices up ractions to 3 or more points in ne o£ the fastest sessions of the ast several weeks. Inspiration for the swift thrust vas attributed partly to a some- vhat better turn in the Genera! lotors strike situation and to the pparently favorable reception iven the president's message to ongress. Short covering was said to have een a contributing factor, espec- ally in the automotive group. The .eels, rails and utilities ran neck- nd-neck with the motors on the pward jaunt. The ticker tape fre- uently was behind floor dealings, lost of the leaders were around leir best levels o£ the day near he final hour. Transfers approximated 2,800,000 shares. Power and light company stocks ere unusually lively as holders f these noted that the chief ex- cutive in his report on the state £ the nation took no pot shots at he utilities. Highly satisfactory usiness for these concerns was Iso given consideration. THURSDAY G R A I N CLOSE.

Selden laid a hand on his shoulder. "You haven't yet recovered Irom your illness. The assassin has got right away by this time. But the main point is that the secret hiding place of the children is known, and they will have to move. By the way, James, that ladder came from the library, I suppose" "Yes, sir, it was used for getting books from the higher shelves; it was . there this evening--I saw it."

"My dear fellow, I know. Don't you remember thai you told me about it, and I chaffed you about your romantic escapade?" Reid stared at the level eyes of the detective and read a warning. James laughed. "That was the time you knocked me down." "I wonder, James, whether you would mind getting us something to drink. I'm sure Heid wants one badly." "Why, certainly, sir." He rose and went out. "Why did you stop me?" Reid said, facing the other- with intense determination. He had intended to tell the whole truth^ and take consequences. "My dear Jack," Selden said in a singularly gentle voice, "while you were lying delirious, there was no one to look after you, and I did not want a stranger there. Shall I go on?" Reid breathed hard; he rested his head on his hands, and his gaze was fixed on the table. "Please do." "I heard you raving in your delirium, and I felt it wasn't safe to have anyone else with you, so I constituted myself nurse ,a' nights. You were' all right in the day." Reid looked up and met the other's eyes. He saw the dark rings and the strained look, and realized what an awful time Selden must have passed through with this heavy weight of responsibility. Tears came to his own eyes--he was still weak. "You were a brick, Selden; you must have heard something." "If I did, I have forgotten. There is no need lo refer again to i unless some day you care to tel me. As far as I am concerned it is sealed up." His mouth twiste into a smile. "But if a certaii young lady I know had hearc your opinion of her she woul have been flattered." To hide his confusion, Reid re marked, "That was why you sen James out of the room." "There was no need for him t hear, but keep your ears oper when he comes back." James came in, apologizing [o the delay. He had been compelle to go lo the servants' quarters an pacify the maids, who had been scared by the noise. He pourcf out drinks and Selden insisted 01 his joining them. "Mrs. Thornton, the housekeep er, has gone to Lady Severinge She insisted on my unlocking th communication door for her. Sh een hiding them, and I couldn't ell him--that's the trouble." "Why not?" Reid asked. Selden's face was grim. "Be- ause," he said, emphasizing each vord, "if I had done so he would [ave had them protected by the lolice, and then there would have ieen no further attempts to ab- uct them." Reid sprang up. "Do you mean hat you were using them as a iait to catch the murderer of Sir lenry? If so, I am not going to e a party to that." "Steady, Reid! Sit down and 3on't get excited. If these assas- ins--for I am convinced there are more than one--are determined to ;et hold of the children, and we lave them effectually hidden, or irotected, they will bide their, time ind sooner or later they will get he chance. Isn't it better when ve are all on our guard, you and fames here, and I, to see if we can't get them? I may even be called off this case. You must really be guided by me." "But I don't see what the object s if it's the same people. Are hey going to put their heads into a noose for blackmail or ransom;-- t sounds too absurd?" Selden gave a quick glance at James, and saw that a struggle \yas going on in his mind. He spoke quietly, but every wore seemed to be like the stab of a vnife into flesh. "There is no queslion of ransom --this is murder. Nothing short of that will satisfy these fiends. Remember, this has not been the work of a day or a month---it has jeen planned for years." "But why murder? What have hese children done?" "The sins of the fathers shall be visited upon the children," Selden said solemnly. He faced round ·apidly. "Am I not right, James?" The question took the butler like i shot from a gun. He stammered and hung his head. "Sir Henry made many enemies when he was young. Excuse me, sir, I'm not easy about the children, and if you ,vill forgive me, I'll go and see if .hey are all right." "Do, James, and tell Miss Lawence that they will be quite C H I C A G O T R O n U C K . ( T h u r s d a y . M a r k e t ) CHICAGO.

"He knows something about this business, Selden," Reid declared. The detective smiled with a slight gesture of contempt. "He knows everything, but he won't speak; that's the difficulty. What is puzzling me is this--pcr- laps you can help. James docs lot -appear to be in any personal danger, and yet he was up to ths lilt in Sir Henry's confidence, and Ihose two and Graham came back '.o this village together. It doesn't tit in; there's something all wrong. Now that Sir Henry is dead, and James has the money, why doesn't lie speak?" "Perhaps he is an accessory to the crime?" "It's not so simple as all that. For tonight the children must remain where they arc--it is hardly worth moving them lo their old rooms at this hour, but you and I will take turns in watching now that Huclcs has deserted us." "Of course I'll do' that," Reid said heartily, feeling that the children were being used rather like an antelope chained to a tree to attract a lion. . "Tomorrow they can return to their own rooms, but they must not go outside the house--that is most important, tor things are moving very swiftly." "I wish to goodness you would tell me what it is all about?" Reid said restlessly. Selden laid a h a n d ' o n his arm reassuringly. "Believe me, there is no question of not trusting you, Jack. I haven't even told Hutchins, and yet he is working with me. I may be entirely wrong and then I should look a fool, but I am waiting for news from London which will either confirm or destroy my suspicions, 'and then I promise to tell you."

The butler did not answer, staring at the floor with a wooden face. "She went to London a few days ago, James, didn't she?" "Mrs. Thornton?" James gave a start. "Yes, she did, and has been making h i n t s and insinuations ever since. I shall ask Lndy Severinge to dismiss her. She is a busybody and mischief-maker." "I heartily agree. I have had some experience of her." Reid interrupted them. "But rlo you think, Selden, that the murderer came in tonight by the way I mentioned?" "I am sure he didn't. T was on guard there myself." "There must be another way in, then. Do you think it possible that there is some secret passage, such as one reads of in books, from the crypt, and under the lake?" Selden smiled. "When we found that the coffin there had been tampered with, after the murder of Sir Henry, I took the obvious course of examining the crypt, with just such an idea as you had. but there is nothing of the sort. I hardly expected to find one, because if there had been one in old days the water from the lake oozing through would have caused a collapse long ago." James gave a gesture of despair. "Then I give it up, sir; but it seems that the children arc not ssfe anywhere in the Abbey." "They are not, James, but we arc not going to remove t h e m lo n safer place. My d i f f i c u l t y is thai I have not been playing the game with Hutchins, for he has been searching for them, and I have gone back to bed, dog tired, (hough their adventurous little souls had been thrilled by the midnight adventure. Sylvia- had accepted all these extraordinary happenings without protest or request for information. She was satisfied to trust to Reid and Selden. who were fighting for her. "James, you had better go to bed," Selden told him. "Mr. Reid and I will be responsible for the safety of the place." "Very good, sir, but Mrs. Thornton is still with Lady Severinge, and T want to lock up the door as usual." Selden remarked: "Give me the key. I am taking the first watch, nnci I will lock it after she has finished her argument, or whatever it is." The butler seemed relieved--he looked tired out.
