C H I C A G O , (If)-- Livestock oric'es reversed their downward trend Wednesday and tilted upward largely because o£ the further curtailment of supplies and partly because the wholesale dressed meat market showed signs o£ recovering. Hogs were around 10 cents higher, top rising to $10.35. The run was 6,000 below advance estimates, totaling only 15,000 head, or half of the week ago supply. Top wholesale pork loin quotations' fell off % cent a pound. Cattle tended a shade higher and a few choice to prime offerings gained 15 cents. The early lop rose 10 cents to $14.35 within 5 cents of the recent 12 months peak. Beduced receipts were the main stimulating factor because the dressed beef trade remained sluggish although beef carcasses were higher in- some instances in the wholesale market. The range on carcasses was .10 to 20 cems a pound compared with 10'A to Hog Markets M I D W E S T HOGS.

It was not easy to whip stock buyers into line higher market as some were in a' position live- in the of them - r- ol-indepen- dence until the wholesale dressed trade demanded greater volume. Buyers representing eastern and several big slaughter plants were ready to skim the cream of cattle offerings at the shade advance, but commission men held on to these to divert interest to, other grades.

"My name is John Escott," he said quietly, "and I was brought up in an ovphange--the Victoria^Memorial institute." To the surprise of everyone present, James said quietly, "Yes, sir, the moment I first saw you I thought there was a very strong family likeness, although it was so long ago. 1 saw it at once, and was disturbed for my master's safety." The tension was relieved by Selden, who laughed. "I see now, James, you thought that Mr. Reid, as we called him, had come to take revenge, and you watched him carefully." Reid broke in with: "I believe both Hucks and Colonel Graham recognized me from the likeness, that is, i£ I am'really the person in question, for they both asked questions about Escott, and seemed anxious to know about me." "We will go into, that later," Selden remarked. "Let's hear the end of James' story." "It was only when we came here, sir, and I found that my master had suddenly got rich, that I suspected something. Then one night, when I asked him to release me from his service because 1 was uneasy in my mind about it, he told me in his study that he and Graham had stolen the money from Escott, Graham had thrown him into the water, and that it weighed .on his conscience. He swore that he would only use the income and keep the money intact in case they could trace the child of Mrs. Escott,-and made me swear that I would never breathe a word of what had happened. I had been with him for years, and I was deeply attached to him, and I swore to him that I would keep the matter secret if he would hand over to me the entire control of the money, which he did. I saved enough to pay back what Colonel Graham had taken as his share. That is why Sir Henry left it all to me. I held it in trust, sir, hoping that one day we should find 'the nearest relation to Mr. Escott or the child." "You were conniving at a murder," Selden said sternly. "I know, sir. I make no excuses, but apart from my sworn word of honor, if I had gone to the police with this story, there was no evidence, and both these respectable gentlemen would have said 1 was lying, or trying to blackmail them. Mr. Escott was dead, and I couldn't bring him to life by saying anything. I know I've done wrong, but I could not betray my master, and if I said anything about Colonel Graham it would bring him into it. We have tried to make what reparation we could." "It is quite -evident," Selden commented, "that the two servants must have had strong suspicions, but they lost toucS With Graham and Severinge, and had to earn a living. Hucks I found went lo the states as a boxer ot quite good second-class. When they returned they must have set about finding the men they hated, and discovered that they were living in luxury. After all these years Uaeir flimsy evidence would have carried little weight, and they devised this cunning plan, one getting into the Abbey as a servant, and HUCKS taking the public house. For years they waited." "WHAT MADE Hucks and Mrs. Thornton act at last on t h a t particular night?" Hutchins asked Selden. In spite of himself he had that it was the face of Henry Es- colt, just as he had seen him over 20 years ago. "The face suddenly disappeared --he told me--and he was so startled that he could not go to bed. It had brought the whole of the past back to him, and the crime he had tried to live down by stern discipline and repentance. (To Be Continued) Tax Interest From Exempt Bonds Held Taxable as Income DES MOINES, supreme court in opinion Tuseday received from tax exempt municipal bonds and securities is taxable as income under the Iowa income tax law. The court held in its opinion that tax exemption laws covering municipal bonds apply only to properly tax exemption, and denied the claim of Henry and Elizabeth Hale, Webster county farm family, for exemption of interest on municipal securities t h e y owned. The Hales claimed all their income came from tax exempt municipal bonds, but that the slat- tax board assessed a - $1,384.24 state income tax against them.

It's OUT Turkish Custom, OLIVET, Mich., (UP)--Local residents know the answer to what is a piloff party. Invitations from Prof. T.

The dinner was prepared by Miss Sifet Nejati, Turkish student at Olivet college. been getting interested in the story as it unfolded itself. "Can't you guess? It's only speculation, but I think they saw our friend Reid and recognized the likeness. Perhaps they thought he had to come down to find out the truth for himself. At any rate, that forced their hands, and they acted." "But the children?" Sylvia asked, speaking for the first time. "Either they thought that the children would inherit the money, and determined -to prevent that, or it was sheer diabolical revenge. But please finish, James." "There is little more to tell, sir," James said sadly. "My master worried a great deal when his marriage turned out badly, and he called it punishment for what he had done. "If he could have found the child he would have made restitution. He told me to do so, if I could find out anything after his death, for hs already felt that he was a marked man, though he had no idea from whom the blow was coming. It was genuine remorse as much as fear that made him become a hermit in his own house." "But what happened on the night of the murder, that's what we w a n t to know?" Hulchtns said briskly. He had no use for the repentant baronet. "Nothing unusual occurred in the evening, sir. I came here as I generally did to confer with Sir Henry and sign documents. He never wrote, as he had forged Escott's signature in his own handwriting, and there was no one who knew any different, of course. I wrote some letters, and signed checks, and then went to my room, locking the dividing doors. The telephone bell 'rang, and I came here. He said he had seen a ghost," "A ghost!'* Sylvia exclaimed. Reid's lips tightened at the words; something of the truth was dawning on him. "I went to his room, and I found him walking up and down in his great agitation. It appeared that he had been staring out of his bedroom window before getting into bed nnd had looked n cross the lake. Bright moonlight illuminated the opposite shore, and shone f u l l on the face of a man half hidden in the bushes.
