TWJBNTY-TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 12 ·§ 1935 HOGS 10 TO 20 HIGHER AT CHICAGO ADVANCE BEST ; FOR OVER WEEK Reports of Improved Demand for Dressed Pork in East Stimulus. . CHICAGO, JP--Reports of an tm. ', proved demand in the east for · dressed pork and a steady market 1 locally sharpened competition for a ,' meager supply of hogs Thursday i and prices ruled 10 to 20 cents · higher, the best advance in more | than a week. ,' The top price was pushed up a i dime to $10.75 and in some heavy 1 hogs sold 25 cents above prices that prevailed for these Wednesday. The , trade had only 10,000 fresh hogs, 25 i per cent arriving direct. ' Light loins have been getting the I best of the advances in the whole', sale trade and this enabled pro: ducers of 160 to 220 pound hogs to collect 40 to 50 cents premiums over ; prices paid for heavier butchers. ! Light loins wholesale quotations · were 19 to 21 cents a pound here. · Wednesday's average weight of ' hogs was 250 pounds, indicating the , presence of a large percentage Of ' heavy animals. 1 Shippers' demand for better grade cattle fell off and prices of these , weakened. Lower grades, however, : were firm to 15 cents higher but ' they sold mostly at $9 downward. A few strictly choice light yearling «teers brought as high as $11.50 but there were not many animals of this kind available. Indications were that lamb prices would rule around 10 cents lower in the bulk of selling, early bids showing this decline.

WHEAT MARKET CLOSES NERVOUS Huge Export Purchasing i: Canada Leads to Buying at Chicago. .CHICAGO, UP) -- Huge export purchasing of .Canadian wheat fo Europe led to flurried speculativ demand at times Thursday in Cbi cage, and to maximum gains of 1^ cents. It was estimated the Canadian government Thursday and Wednes day had sold a total of 4,000,000 bushels of its wheat holdings for shipment overseas. Enlarged fcrans- Atlantic takings of wheat from Canada were ascribed mainly to uncertainties over chances of untoward military developments ahead. Wheat closed nervous, % -114 above Wednesday's finish, May 51-00%-%, July 90#-%; corn %-% up, May 60%; oats %-% advanced and provisions unchanged to a rise of 17 cents.

NEW YORK, (/B--The stock market encountered heavy selling Thursday which depressed numerous leaders 1 to 3 or more points before steadying-. At the beginning- of the final hour selling had lessened considerably and the list was a shade up from the day's lows. Active issues on the offside included U. S. Steel, Bethlehem, General Motors, Chrysler, J. I. Case, WeEtinghouse, Douglas Aircraft, Sears Roebuck, American Tobacco "B," American Telephone. Santa Fe, Southern Pacific and Western Union. Amerada Corp., one of yesterday's bright spots, dropped 5 points, but resistance was shown in other on shares. Standard of New Jersey was more than a point higher. The late tone was heavy. Sales a p p r o x i m a t e d 2,700,000 shares. The principal foreign exchanges were lower in terms of the dollar. Bonds were easy. Foreign developments tended to overshadow the work at Washington on the new tax bill, but there seemed to be little apprehension over the passage of a revenue measure that will unduly handicap industry. The consensus was that business will continue to make a favorable showing during the coming weeks of seasonal influences.

Standing against the trend were several mining shares which advanced a bit, or mained unchanged in early dealings. Included In the gainers were Wright Hargrcaves and Lake Shore Mines. Aluminum company of America, Gulf Oil. Great Atlantic and Pacific and Bridgeport Machine were among Issues josins most. The lower trend on the stock exchange contributed to the Inability of curb stocks to hold their best. "I didn't bring you out here to tell you that you are a wonder . . . exactly. But there was something, i fancy I'm going to be rather dumb about it. I know I am. I hope you'll try and . . . you know . . . understand." "I'll try," Thora promised. Amusement lighted her blue eyes. This was not like the suave Sherman Gordon. "Especially," she added, "if you'll tell me what it is." "Sure. I'm worried. That's what's the matter ... on two counts. I felt I could tell you about it. That I must." Tbora wondered instinctively if he were going to say something about Wilma. Perhaps he had noticed that she had changed of late, suspected that she was unhappy over her forthcoming marriage. But Gordon's next words took her by surprise. "It's Selwyn." "Mr. Marsh?" she repeated vaguely. "You mean that you are worried about him?" "Yes, I am. It's- none of my affair, but I am. I think- he's on a spot." "I don't understand." "Of course not. I'll come 'clean . ... if it does have a gossip-mongering sound. I'm talking about the neighbor widow. You've been around here long enough to see what's brewing there. She's been making a play for him ever since I .was old enough to notice. Well, I think she's hooked him." Thora made no reply, only looked at the narrator steadily "I'm pretty sure of it," he hurried on, as if anxious to get it over with. "I was talking to her yesterday morning a few minutes and she either tried to let the cat out of the bag, or she opened it and hoped it wouid jump. She was coy about it all ... fluttered, you know. Talking about Wilma's wedding . . . said the neighborhood was due for another surprise. Very mysterious. If she had been within reach of her rouge, she would have blushed , . . that sort of thing." Gordon grinned feebly when he said that, but there was no answering smile. Instead, Thora said calmly: "1 would imagine there is littl AGED HAYFIELD WOMAN IS DEAD Mrs. Elizabeth Steil, 72, Resident of Hancock Since 1882.

Final prices were around the best of the session. There was no precipitation over night in the southwest and but little change in the situation is forecast for Kansas and Nebraska 'or the next 24 hour period. The good sized export business in Winnipeg over night, .mounting to one and a half million bushels, fas a bullish piece of news. There was naturally more general buying Thursday as he political news from abroad appeared to ie becoming more serious. The weakness in he security market pointed to this belief. The governing factor of the market for the moment is ths situation in Europe and the attendant action of foreign markets. Corn--There was a wider range in prices Thursday and a little more outside trade vas noticeable. The trend on the whole was nfluenced principally by {be upturn in vhcat. News regarding the Argentine corn rop said that while there was no doubt ut some damage had occurred in isolated pots, in general the crop is expected to e substantial but perhaps smaller than last ear's record yield. NEW YORK, VP:~~ BontJ market prices drifted, irregularly lower Thursday in quiet trading. The government section made a show of strength during- the late forenoon, but progress was scant. Advances were confined to 2-32nds and there were a few losers of similar proportions.

Just fo: some reason, I can't see you fhere under those conditions. That's none of my business, too," he added, so earnestly that it did not occur to Thora to feel any resentment. "I told you that I was worried on two counts. You're the second." "But you shouldn't worry about me. I could look for another place I would," Thora admitted candidly "That's exactly what I'm afraid of You'd go away from here . . . drop out of sight again." "Probably." "And I don't want you to do that. If anything like that should happen. . . . I know where you could get a better job.'' Something in his tone caused Thora to look at him searchingly, as she asked: "Are you joking?" "I am not." "Do you mean that you know of a position like the one I have now? A housekeeper?" "Precisely." "Where? For whom?" He jerked his head in the direction of the empty farm house. "There. For me." As Sherman uttered those three words, his dark eyes met Thora's in a level gaze.

(TO BE CONTINUED) TESTIMONY GIVEN BY DON BREWER Judge Clark Says He Would Have Set Aside Judgment If Improper. Don Brewer, husband of Mrs. Helen M. Brewer, testified in court here Thursday afternoon concerning his participation in and knowledge of conferences between Mrs. Brewer and Garfield E. Breese, local attorney against whom disbarment proceedings have been instituted by Mrs. Brewer. Mrs. Brewer left the witness stand at 11:35 o'clock Thursday morning. She had taken the stand, as first witness in her own behalf, since 10 o'clock Wednesday morning except for a brief interlude Thursday morning when Judge Joseph J. Ciark, who entered the first rent judgment against her in favor of A. W. Harroun and also overruled a motion that the judgment be set aside, was called as a character witness by the defense. Held Not Improper. Judge Clark stated that had iere been anything improper with the A. W. Harroun judgment against Mrs. Brewer for rent he would have set it aside. The fact that judgment had been taken in the first Harroun case was not the sole governing factor in the iubsequent judgment, the judge stated. There waa also the question yf the validity of the lease, he tated. Judge Clark, who said he had to hurry away as he was holding court in another county seat, testified that the character, conduct and reputation of Mr. Breese was excellent. Mr. Brewer corroborated his wife's testimony that frequent dif- culty with the elevator in the bullring rented by her from Mr. Har- ·oun, coupled with Mr. Harroun's alleged failure to keep the elevator in such a state of repair that it could be insured, caused Mrs. Jrewer to decide to move the Brewer Tire and Battery company ·tit of 'the building in June, 1933, two and a half years before the expiration of the five year lease A-hich she had signed with Mr. iarroun for the renting of the milding. Upon Mr. Breese's advise, they began to dismantle the company's equipment and evacuate, Mr. Brewer said. Drew Up Accusation. While under cross examination y John Senneff, counsel for Mr. ireese, Mrs. Brewer volunteered he statement that Wesley Henke, Charles City attorney who repre- ented her during some of the Harroun litigation, drew up the orig- nal accusation in the disbarment roceedings. After repeated interrogations by Ir. Senneff Wednesday afternoon, Irs. Brewer admitted that her iharge that Mr. Breese conspired ath officers of the First National ank was not based upon any def- nite information but rested solely pon her interpretation Creese's attitude. of Mr. LIVESTOCK AUCTION EVERY SATURDAY 1 P.
