Mason City Harcfr[ware "OVER ON EAST STATE" CHAPTER 37 THORA DAHL always glanced hastily through the house mail if it came into her hands on its way to the library. There was always the hope that she might discover that longed-for letter with the Minnesota postmark, addressed in the familiar fine handwriting of her mother. But it bad not come. This morning 1 , however, she had been amazed to find her name written in a bold flowing hand across a square white envelope. She sensed the writer's identity at once and was not in the least surprised when her guess proved correct. The missive said: Dear Thora Dahl:-IT my legal mind has not lost its keen edge, you will be trying to decipher this on Thursday morning. At 3:30 of that name date, to- wit. I shall be driving up to your door in my car. It is a green roadster, in case there is a traffic rush. You are to be dressed in your best and be ready to ride for the space of one half hour, more or lesa.

Please And gratefully. SHERM. I shall sit in my car and honk until you appear. So . . . in the interests of peace, etc. Thora pondered over the message as she went aBout her work, half amused and half angry. She would have thought it a hoax o£ some sort, had she not believed she knew Gordon too well. What could be wish to talk about? And why had he gone to Mr. Marsh first, instead of finding out if she were willing to go? Perhaps h e ' hadn't. He might be trying to trick her into the ride, knowing that she would not be likely to check up on w h n t he said. The more she considered it. the more certain she became that she could not speak to Mr. Marsh about it. Slightly exasperated by the puzzle, she finally decided to refer it to Wilma. That young woman smiled as she read the note. "Oh, that's merely Sherm's idea of being: original. There's no deep mystery. I heard him telling dad that he was going out to his farm one afternoon this week an dthat he'd like to take you along and let you see it. He said . . . I remember . . . that you were the only person he could talk 'farm' to. That's what he wints." '\Then you think he will really, be here?" "Don't doubt it. Get ready and go with him." 'I'm nto sure . . . " "Nonsense! It will do you good. Sherm's pretty slow . . , and as safe as he is slow." Wilma laughed. "I wasn't thinking of that." "If you mean the neighbors . . . . why should you worry?" Reassured by this interview, Thora decided to be dressed and ready at the specified time . '. . also to be within easy reach of the front door in case Mr. Gordon carried out the threat mentioned in the postscript to his note. It proved to be a wise precaution for, on the dot of 3:30, there came the strident blast of a motor horn. And Gordon was on the point of sounding a second when Thora came hurrying out and across the porch. "It worked:" was his greeting. "Thank you." "This time," Thora discouraged him. "I'm not in the habit o£ answering signals." She tried to look severe, but the effort was not successful. 'All the more thanks, then." Sherman was assisting her into the car. 'I had to resort to trickery, for fear you would refuse my request. I needed your advice rather badly." "Are the potato bugs getting the best of you?" "It's the beans . . . somebody's spilled them." Gordon started the car. "I am going to run you out and show you my place . . . only a few miles. You won't,call it a farm, but I hope you'll spare my feelings as much as you can." If he had something that he really wished to tell her. Thora decided that he was putting it off. He was strangely silent during most of the brief ride and his companion gave herself up happily to enjoying the countryside. The Gordon farm proved to be a modest estate of some SO acres. There was a small weatherbeaten house and several outbuildings on the place, but no tenant. "I'm not doing anything here but raising a little hay and grain," the owner explained. "The man · who lives on the next place does the work for me." "That's no way to farm." Thora objected. "You should come out here and live . . .do the work yourself. That's what a dirt farmer decs," she reminded him with a smile. "The house could be made very attractive without much expense." They were parked in the shade of a large oak tree that stood near a small barn. "I,may do that some day," Gordon remarked slowly. He took some letters and a pencil from his pocket and started making a sketch on the back of an envelope. "This will give you an idea of the layout and what I'm trying to do now." For a quarter of an hour, they discussed the situation. Thora listened attentively, asked occasional qusetions and offered bits of information regarding crop practices in her native state. "It sure is great to talk to someone like you,'- Gordon sighed happily. "You're a wonder!" "Did you bring me all the way out here to tell me that?" she asked good-naturedly. "I could have told you so before we left " That same little feeling of happiness had stolen over her, just as it had happened that morning when she and Mr. Gorden rode out to the hiiltop together. Again she was with someone to whom she could talk, he her real self. He was the only one who was like that. For some reason there was no harrier here. It was true that Mr. Gordon had very nearly spoiled things for both of them, but that would not happen again. She had misunderstood them. Everything was different now. (TO BE CONTINED). HOG PRICES STEADY TO lOc HIGHER RECEIPTS HELD EVEN TO DEMAND Heavier Swine Than Usual Received Recently at Chicago Yards. CHICAGO. (xPJ--Hog receipts were held more in line with market demand Wednesday and as a result packers paid steady to 10 cents higher prices in order to fill the day's slaughtering requirements. Because of the very favorable feeding situation, with the corn-hoy price ratio the widest in several years, current hog receipts have been running unusually heavy as far as weight is concerned. Market figures showed the live weight is the heaviest in 40 years and trade observers said producers were inclined to fatten their stock on relatively cheap corn in order to take advantage of the price "being paid for hogs. Last week's average weight of all hogs received was 244 pounds, the highest of the season. A year ago the average was 235 pounds and two years ago it was 227. One hundred pounds of live hogs are worth 510 now, practically equivalent to 20 bushels of corn. The day's top was $10.6H, or 5 cents above Tuesday's best price. Receipts were only 11,000. Generally steady to strong prices were paid for cattle although some early sales were strong to 25 cents higher. The sluggish condition of the dressed beef trade was a weakening factor in the shipping; demand for better grade steers. Early top was $11.65 but some choice "beeves were held around $12. Fat lambs were 25 cents higher, top reaching $.10.35. Mason City Livestock MASON cm'--For Wednesday HOGS Five I n 30 cents higher, Oood liRiu lights , MO-IRQ $9.:!0-y.fiO Good lights ,.
