FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 26 1936 HOGS STEADY TO 10 GENTS LOWER PRICES OF MEAT CUT BY PACKERS Average Chicago Hog Costs Under $10 for First Time in Month. CHICAGO, GT--The average cost of hogs dropped under the $10 level for the first time in a month Wednesday as prices ruled steady to 10 cents lower. The cutting of meat prices by packers coincident with the dull trade in retail channels was the principal bearish factor. Wholesale beef quotations are the lowest in almost 14 months, and veal has been marked down a cent a pound or more -recently. Lamb meat prices were o£f 50 cents, equaling the lowest since Nov. 1 and fresh pork has been cut to a point comparable with the low schedule which went into effect soon after the hog processing tax was removed. The hog- top today was $10.25. Receipts totaled 10,000, a modest supply but burdening considering the condition of the market. Prices of cattle rallied slightly. Fed steers and yearlings were strong to 25 cents higher and in federal demand was improved. Lower grades that sold at $7.50 and below showed the full advance, with replacement buyers competition with packers for these. Choice shipping cattle were held above 511. Most lamb sales were around 15 cents lower on early rounds. Mason City Livestock MASON CITY--For Wednesday-HOGS Fifteen cents lower.

Nordbye told the Kiwanis club "many of the Sin- clairf, the Olsons, the Huey Long followers, the Coughlins and the Townsends, could not make a success of conducting their own business." Judge Nordbye spoke on better government, a campaign for which is being conducted this week in Vlinneapolis. once termed by Attorney General Homer Cummings "a poison spot of crime." "We even have the dominant party in our state proclaim cap- talism has failed, that production for use must be substituted for iroduction for profit and that all America has builded these 150 years s for naught." declared Judge Nordbye. 'We have the declaration that a new structure must give way to one :o be constructed by the Sinclairs, the Olsons, the Huey Long followers, the Coughlins, the Townsends and others, many of whom could not make a. success in conducting .heir own business. "We never can expect a healthy condition in our community as long as those who are sworn to uphold the law permit mobs to violate laws with impunity," he added. "Surely ve feel the urge to rectify condi- ions that permit men to be shot down on our streets: 'the guilty to go undetected and if detected, to escape retribution of the law." Line Up for Coal. HUTCHINS--The streets of this own were lined up with teams and ars Monday because a car of coal ust arrived. STOCK MARKET UNEVEN AFFAIR Steels and Some of Recent Leaders Continue to Point Downward. NEW YORK, ()--Strength and weakness alternated in Wednesday's quiet stock market. While the steels and a number of the recent leaders continued to point downward, various merchandise, utility, oil and hpecialty issues took a turn for the better. National Lead, around the start of the final hour, showed a gain of 24 points as the company's directors proposed a 10-for-l split up of the stock and a pleasing earnings report was disclosed. Other gainers up to a point or so included Electric Power and Light, Macy, Montgomery Ward, Gimbel, Arnold Constable, Fajardo Sugar, International Harvester, Seaboard Oil, North American. Columbia Gas, U. S. Smelting and Cerro de Pasco. Down as much were U. S. Steel, Bethlehem, Allied Chemical, Westinghouse, N. Y. Central and Auburn. The late tone was mixed. Transfers approximated 2,400,000 shares. Foreign exchanges were easy in terms of the dollar. Japanese bonds, the yen and silk prices broke sharply following advices of serious political disturbances at Tokio, but other markets apparently were little affected by the new far eastern developments. Curb Market NKW YORK, Uv-The curb - market was barely steady Wednesday with utilities mixed and oil shares indicating some promise of holding their best prices. A number of industrial specialties made sharp gains of around 2 points, the highest levels of the first two hours of trading. Aluminum company of America and Pan American Airways gained about 2 each, and others up fractions included Creole Petroleum, G u l f Oil. International Petroleum, Niagara Hudson Power, Wright Hargreave, ana fcllncttic Bond and Share. On the down side, however, were Fowdreli and Alexander, off more than 2, and Parker Rust Proof, American Cyanamid B, Creal Atlantic and Pacific Tea company. Lake Shore Mines, tind American Super Power. Bond Market NEW YORK, *;1V- Japanese obligations rolte .sharply in ihe bond market Wednesday in res-ponse to the political disturbances n Tokio. u. S. government loans were up and corporate issues irregular. Liquidation knocked Japanese 6^'s down more than 3 points, while the 5%'s were off about 2 points. Selling in this sector, was contagious and quickly hit Japanese corporate obligations also. The Great Consolidated Electric Power of Japan 7's were off around 2 points, (he 6 J .i'E were down about 3. In tne U.

Other than the Japanese bonds, the foreign list was steady. Produce MASON CITY--For Wednesday. Cash Quotations by E. G.

You came here, you know," remarked Selwyn Marsh when Thora said she had reached the end of her story about her past. "Why, yes. After I sent Eric home . . . I thought his mother would want that . . . 1 tried to find something to do. It wasn't very easy because I had no references and I didn't know anybody. I tried all sorts of places. Then, one day, I happened to see Miss Taggart's ad in the paper and it occurred to me that I had been overlooking my best chance. So I went there." "I see." "I had to tell you this, Mr. Marsh, to try to make you understand that you mustn't do ... what you think you're going to. I know what it will mean to Wiima . . . and she's so young. Don't you see?" "Umph." Selvvyn swung around in his chair and stared down at the sleeping dachshund for a long minute. When he raised his eyes, there was a quizzical light in them. "I'll tell you what I'll do. Miss Dabl. I'll strike a bargain with you." "I am not sure I should," Thora reflected. "It's not fair to Miss Marsh." "Fair!" Selwyn snorted. "She doesn't know what that means! Why, she had the nerve to come in here today and tell me that she had invited this bounder to my house . . . that he would show up almost any time now! That's what started it all. Coolest thing I ever beard of. She acted as if she thought I'd kiss him!" Thora smiled in spite of herself. "What is the name of this dreadful person . . . who is coming- to see you?" "I'll never tell you," Selwyn growled. "It's something like . . . Barabbas." There was a distinct twinkle in the blue eyes now. "That is what gave you a bad impression, Mr. Marsh." "No, it isn't. I don't like him and don't intend to. But if you have decided he's coming-, you may as well fix a room for him. Make it as far from mine as you can. And you'd better talk it over with Wilma. Just tell her it's all right, as far as I'm concerned." "But I think Miss Marsh should make the arrangements," Thora objected. "I have not decided to stay." "I've decided," Selwyn explained. "It's all settled. Whatever you do will be all right . . . just leave me out of it. You tell Wiima I said so. Don't bother me any more . . . it'll" be bad enough, later. This last was said so dismissively that there was nothing left for Thora to do but leave the room. She was confused over, this latest turn of events. It all had worked out so differently than she had expected. Her own story had come out in a pent- up rush, with but one reason or hope--to try to keep Mr. Marsh from from doing so unjust a thing to his daughter. To save Wiima from the hardship she herself had endured at the hands of a stubborn father. She had succeeded . . . with totally un- exepcted results, as far as her own status was concerned. Moved by a sudden impulse, she mounted the stairs and walked directly to Wilma's door. "Come in," said a muffled voice, in answer to the housekeeper's tap on the panel. Wiima must have teen lying aeross the bed. When Thora first saw her, she was propped up on one hand. Her eyes were swollen and her face flushed. A wadded handkerchief was clutched in her free hand. "Well, what do you want?" she demanded, when she saw who her caller was. Thora was struck anew with the resemblance of the girl to her father. That question, that trick of frowning. . . . "I'm sorry to disturb you, Hiss Marsh," she began quietly. "But Mr. Marsh was just telling me that you expected a guest very soon. I was going to suggest the east room, but I thought I would like to ask you first." The room in question was across the hall from Selwyn's, at a safe distance. Wiima stared for a moment without replying. She rose to her feet and came forward slowly. "Did my father say who the guest was?" she demanded. Thora assumed the role of the well-trained housekeeper . . . in self- defense, this time. "I'm sorry, but Mr. Marsh seemed unable to recall the name. He said it was a gentleman." "He said that!" Wilma's dark eyes widened. "Are you sure?" "Quite. In fact . . . he said the gentleman was your fiance. Will it be all all right if I prepare the east room for Mr. . . . " "Babbas," Wiima supplied mechanically. "Now. I know that is the one whom Mr. Marsh meant," Thora remarked with a slight smile. "He tried to say it." She turned away with a mechanical, "Thank you." "Hiss Dahl!" "Yes?" "Come here, please. I ... I don't understand. I told father a while ago that Alec was coming and he . he blew up. You must have heard him, if you were in the house. He informed me that when Alec came, he would find me waiting out at the gate with my bags packed. He couldn't get it into his head that I might possibly care for the poor boy. Just because Alec wasn't a Son of the Revolution, or something, he was ixnay . . . all that sort of thing-. Unless I called everything off, I was out of luck . . . he even pulled that old one about being cut off with a shilling. And now, you're trying to tell me . . I just don't get it." "Everything appears to be all right now," Thora assured her. She had no wish to be questioned on the subject. "Well, if it's all right . . . you did something. It's a miracle. Father i doesn't change his mind like that. . . . I'm the same way. I won't ask you any questions. It's your business. But I wish you knew . . ." "It'9 only that your fathei changed his mind, after he had time to think everything over. That is all, I'm sure." "Well, if you think that, you don't know him as well as I imagined you did. But I'm a good sport, too." To Thora's amazement, she held out her hand with a frank gesture, flashing her white teeth in a good-natured smile. "I've been rather a beast. Forget it, will you? "I have not blamed you . . . for anything." "That's pretty square of you. I won't forget. Thanks." When Thora went downstairs, she encountered Marsh and Pfeffernusse in the lower hall. The two of them, apparently, were starting out for a stroll. Selwyn paused long enough to ask gruffly: "Well, did you see her?" "Yes. sir." "Storm all over?" "I think so." A mischievous light shone in the blue eyes. "The name," Thora remarked demurely, "is-Babbas." "Umph. I told you so. He's a. . . an Arab, I'll wager. Come along, liverwurst," he growled to his dog. "We'll have a League of Nations around here yet." (TO BE CONTINUED) LEGAL NOTICE NOXICF OF INCORI'OKATIOX OF INDUSTRIAL CREDIT CORPORATION.
