FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 25 1936 HOGS STEADY TO 10 CENTS LOWER CATTLE LOWEST FOR OVER YEAR Market Dull and Sluggish in Chicago; Lamb Trade Shows Gam. CHICAGO, (!P -- With, cattle prices at the lowest level in more than a year, the market was extremely dull and sluggish Tuesday. Demand was so poor that business v.'as almost at a standstill at times. An extremely dull dressed beef market despite recent reductions in wholesale quotations and a bulge in receipts accompanying mild weather ha,ve combined to form a bearish situation which has forced the cattle market off 50 cents so far this week, with the instances lower plecrs and hellers are particularly v.-cak and the undertone Tuesday was easy. Thousands of cattle held in feedlots the past 30 days because of cold weather are now believed headed for market and a larger than necessary supply of bovine stock is expected. Monday's receipts were 16.000 but this was halved by the run Tuesday although many animals were held over from Monday. Most steers sold at ?7 to $8.50 with some choice ones bringing $10.50. Last week's average slaughter steer cost was ?8.35, lowest since January 1935 and ?2.19 below a year ago. The 1935 peak for steers was 516.25, paid on May 1. Few fed heifers sold above ?7 Tuesday, and the bulk sold at ?7 down to $6. Hogs were steady to 10 cents lower with spots off more in a slow trade. The top was 510.40. The demand for fat lambs improved and early sales were fully steady to stronger. The early top was $10.15.

Lamson Brothers Market Letter CHICAGO- WHEAT--There -was a quiet but firm opening Tuseday and prices showed but lit- t l e chanpe unti Ibuying of July by shorts ;tnd brokers made its appearance and this buying in the deferred futures continued until near the close. The result of this buy j n p was a narrowins of the July-Slay spread to about 9 cents. It is possible that fiome of Ibis buying was based on the recent, reports oC dust storms and generally dry weather ^ver I h e extreme western areas "f t h e winter wheat belt. We understand that most oc t h i s blowing and dust is confined to Uie Oklahoma, panhandle, southwest Kansas nnd eastern Colorado. It I? yet p r u b a b l j too e a r l y to hocutne und u l y apprehensive over these reporls. Thrrc was a little nii'l buying today Mnd \varehouse receipts were canceled for shipment of 50.000 bushels of No. 2 red and 132,000 bushels were reported sold out of this market. The increased activity in the wheat market Tuesday was encouraging and from now on we would expect more outside trade to come into the deferrd futurs. CORN--Corn prices were steady and there was some indication of replacement of long corn recently sold by traders friendly to the market. Cash prices and limits v.-ere un- changd as has been the case in the recent past. From sections of Ohio came the formation that there was still much corn In the fields and that because of the condition of this corn farmers would ship it in as rapidly as possible. Condition Is Good. CARPENTER -- Word was received Ihal. Vcrnon Anderson's condition was soon after his operation at Iowa City last p'riday. HEAVY SELLING SWEEPS STOCKS Market Closes Weak; Late Wave Follows Dull Early Trade. NEW YORK, UP)--After drifting dully throughout the greater part c-f Tuesday's session, a heavy selling wave swept over the stock market at the beginning- of the final hour. In the downward movement losses of 1 Lo 4 or more points were scattered over a broad front. For a while the ticker tape fell about 7 minutes behind floor transactions. Some ot the- sugars, including Fa- .iardo and Holly, managed to buck the trend, along with Sears Roebuck and a few specialties. Among the conspicuous losers were U. S. Steel, du Pont, Air Reduction, Electric Auto-Lite, Kenne- cott, General Electric, Chrysler, General Motors, Western Union, American Telephone. Northern Pacific, Santa Fe and Union Pacific. The late tone was weak. Transfers approximated 2,500,000 shares. Curb Market NKW YORK, (.PJ--Losses of fractions to a point were sustained in the curb raar Tuesday. Trading was quiet. American Cyanamid "B." American Gas and Electric. Creole Petroleum. Bliimentnal ;ind Kk'ctrie Bond and Share were among the losers. U. S. Playinp Card braced up more than a point on moderate turnover. International petroleum and Niagara Hudson Power were fractionally hlfihcr. Bond Market Is'KW YORK, t.'V--All sections or the list were a little lower in the bond market Tuesday. U. S. treasury issues shifted down slightly on limited turnover. Declines were explained In investment circls in terms or the treasury's plans to refinance more than SI.000,000,000 of its obligations on March 16 and to borrow new cash. Bond men said the market had acted well, however, in the liKht oE the fact that the treasury usually shields closely announcements of financing clats in order to prevent market repercussions. They also pointed out that the steadiness of. federal loans was probably in some measure a reflection of the obstacles which the congressional advocates of new money printing are said to be encountering. In ihs suarantced sector ot t h e covcrnment list losses ran to around 3-:::!nds. The few direct obligations traded showed smaller declines. Small losses in carrier equities were matched by limited declines in such rail liens as St. Paul fis. North Western 4~.is, and Southern Railway -Is. Baltimore and Ohio js and Illinois Central lÂ»;s dropped a point or FO. American Telephone 5s were a tntle lower. Toungstown Sheet and Tube Ss up a bit. Italian Ts dipped a small fraction. Other foreigns were steady. Produce MASON CITY--For Tuesday. Cash Quotations by E. G.

Ilr HEAD THIS FIRST: A few (lays after nttraulivr Thorn Dalil accepts a position MM housekeeper In the liumc of Si'l- wyn Marsli, Marsh's UaiijjliU'r. \Vilnia, arrives and seems to vv.- Ncnt her presence. Thorn meets Sherman Gordon, a friend of \Vilma. and her lather, and Dotliu Stccle, a designing widow who lives nearby. Mrs. Stcele also objects to Thora's presence in the Marsh home.- As she rides one morning, Thora finds Sherman Gordon waiting for her on horseback. He offers to show her the countryside. Gordon tells Thora she has made a most favorable impression on Marsh, her employer. After overhearing sharp v words between Marsh and his daughter, Thora pleads with him not to send \ViIma a\vaj', as he has threatened to do, because she intends to marry a foreigner she met while traveling. NOW GO ON WITH THE STOHV CHAPTER 21 "YOU ARE wrong," Thora insisted steadily when her employer announced he intended to disinherit his daughter. "You are the one who . . . doesn't know what he is doing. You can't!" There was a ring in her clear voice that held Selwyn Marsh speechless for an instant. His eyes narrowed. Who was this blue-eyed girl, to stand there and tell him what he could do ... what he could not do f "And why not, pray?" was his sarcastic suggestion. "Because it is a very dreadful thing to do." Her gaze met his unflinchingly. "I know." "You don't mean . . .T' "Yes. I do. I ... I can't go to my father's home. Not even to see my mother. He won't let me." "My dear girl . . ." Marsh twisted uneasily in his chair. "I didn't know . . ." "No, you didn't," Thora helped, in her calm tones. "You were good enough not to ask me anything when I came here. Perhaps I should have told you. I don't know. I wanted this place badly. But, now. I must try to make you understand that you can't do this thing . . . to your girl." "Now, now . . . Miss Dahl." "No. I will tell you. I must. There isn't much . . . It began years ago. There was a boy who lived on the farm next to my father's. His name was . . . It was Eric. We grew up together, like a brother and a sister, Eric was quite a genius, for a boy. His mother had a hard time to make her place pay . . . even to get a living. Eric helped all he could and he spent his spare time in a little shop he had in one ot the sheds. I used to watch him. He had great dreams . . . " Thora's voice trailed away, as she recalled the dreams. Marsh watched her in silence. Her blue eyes were fixed on the window, but he knew instinctively that she was seeing something a great way off. He restrained his natural desire to interrupt. Waited. "Eric's mother died when he was IS," Thora resumed, after a moment. "Their place was mortgaged and he couldn't keep it. He didn't want to anyway. He wanted to get away, where there were factories and shops. He told me . . . I was the only one who ever understood." "You mean that you were in love with him," Marsh accused gruffly. Thora's eyes left the window and sought him. There was a perplexed expression in their blue depths. " No . ." she decided thoughtfully. "I don't believe so. We never talked about things like that. Eric went away . ... to Minneapolis. He had several jobs, but nothing that quite suited Mm. Finally, he came east and found a place in a steel mill. He liked that. He used to write me all about it, how well he was doing. That was after I started teaching school." "What happened to him ?" Marsh wanted to know. "I didn't hear antyhing for quite a. long time, once. Then he wrote me that he had lost his savings. He had invested everything in a small shop, with a partner. The man wasn't honest and Eric lost his money. He went back to the mill. And then . . ." "Then?" "There was a telegram came to me at the school . . . just before Christmas holidays. It was from a friend of Eric. It said that Eric had been . . . hurt. He was burned in an accident. He wanted me." "So?" "Why, I had to go to him." Thora said it quietly, but defensively. As if her hearer suspected there could be any other possible solution. "I had to go. Eric had no people and he wanted me. I called up my supervisor and told him he would have to get a substitute. Then I went to the bank and drew out all my money . . . that was the next morning . . . and took the first train." "You mean you didn't tell your folks?" "No. My father never liked Eric. He never liked any man that wouldn't rather work in the fields from sunrise to dark than do anything else. He thought Eric was lazy. Nothing could ever change his opinion. He is like that. I know that my mother would understand and want me to go. But it would have meant only trouble for her. I thought the best thing to do was go . . . then write. So I did." "And your father?" "I suppose if. I had married Eric, father would have gotten over it in time. He sent word to me through mother that I was never to come home again. He'll never change. He thinks I'm . . . bad." Marsh started to say something. Instead, he grunted. "I found Eric in a hospital," Thora resumed. "He was badly burned; his face was the worst. And his eyes . . .'Â· "Xnt blind!" "No, his sight wasn't gonr. Put the doctors told me he never would be aVilr to sec \\v\\. V'.vlv \viis \n Uic hospital i\i- \\voKs.

"Thon hi- nvovi'rol'.'" Thora shook hor lu\'ul ^Unvly. "I think it was h\,s prMo. . . . You know. Ho foil Hint ho novor would be able to do tlio things ho hud planned. And IIP worried about me. . . . I didn't realise that at first. At', ter a few months, I was worried myself. I knew that I would have to find something to do to take car c of expenses bofcirc so very long. But Evic was so frail that 1 dUln't sue how 1 could leave him alone. And then . . ." "What?" 'One day . . .'Â· Thorn's voice sank sn low that. Marsh barely heard the simple acount. "I had gone to the drug store. When T t'fl me hark there was a little crowd. . . . Eric didn't want to get. well." There was a deep silence in the library following those halting words. Pfcffernusse. who wag curled up on the .rug near Marsh's chair raised his head inquiringly, stared at the man and girl, wagged his tail aimlessly, then composed himself to sleep once more. Selwyn scowled before he inquired abruptly: "And you still want me to think you weren't in love with that chap. Miss Dahl? That you were only . . . friends?" "Just friends. He needed me. There was nothing else to do." "Nothing else to do." Marsh repeated gruffly. "I thought that brand of friendship had gone out of style long ago. Let's hear the rest of your story'" "That is all." Thora said with quiet finality. (TO BE CONTINUED! TERRY OSED OLD Hank Leiber Should Think Out Better Tale Than Offer of Coaching Post. NEW YORK. '.PI--Hank Leiber, New York Giants' center fielder, may be serious about his announcement of quitting- major league baseball to coach at the University of Arizona but Manager Bill Terry does not believe it. "Hank should think up a new story," declared Terry, himself possessor of quite a reputation as a holdout. "I used that one myself years ago when I was trying to get a raise." Terry made his statement from the Giants' training camp at Pensacola, Fla. Â» "But if Hank can do better by himself coaching a college team than playing for the Giants, I wish him all the luck in the world. Understand, however, he really can't be classed as a holdout until March 1, the date he has been ordered to report at Pensacola." Leiber, who batted .331 last year in his first full year as a regular, is supposed to be demanding S15.000, an increase oÂ£ ?7,000 over the salary he is generally believed to have received last year. The Giants are said to have offered him $10,000. WRESTLING B v Thi- Associated Press) WII,MI.XGTOA* --Kttiil Dustk. 215, Omaha, dffcateil OrnrpB Kovefly, 21S t Hollywood, two out of three. LANCASTER.

S N T H E R i N G Warning Issued on Seed Corn 'Bought From South CHARLES CITY--A number of farmers in the county are purchasing seed corn from sections outside of the county which in all likelihood will prove to be too late in maturity for this county. There- are several instances were seed corn has been purchased from firms and individuals in the southern part of the state. This corn will be entirely too late for this county. Experience has shown that corn can be moved only a very short distance north or sout.h without greatly affecting its adaptability. The change is not nearly so noticeable from east to west. Corn grown even as far as 50 miles south of here is entirely too late for conditions in this county in most cases. 2 Women's Club Meetings on.Charles City Schedule CHARLES CITY--Two Women's cKib meetings were scheduled Tuesday in the assembly room of the Congregational church. The "regular meeting last week was omitted as the church was closed. The garden and home department meeting was to follow the general business meeting at 2:30 when Miss Ethel Waller had charge of the topic, "The Fun of Having a Garden." Members of all departments were invited to attend the regular meeting of the business and professional women's department Tuesday evening. Mrs. Louis Gilmer will give the history of the art of acting and several of her pupils will demonstrate dramatic interpretations. (By The Xxsocialed Press! FAROO. N. Dak. --EvercUr Richtniire, Uii.
