SIXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 17 M 1936 RETAIL DEMAND FOR MEAT SLUGGISH LIVESTOCK MART DULL AT CHICAGO .- High Steady to 10 Lower as Top Declines 5 Cents *'· to $10.80. ; CHICAGO, UP--The dull livestock . trade Tuesday accompanied by slight price concessions was a re' flection of the sluggish demand for meat in retail channels. Packers -reported accumulations were moving slowly. Prospects of increased '''nog marketings later on in the year -tempered sentiment of buyers who would compete for supplies more actively if there was no indication that the pork volume will increase. Hogs ruled steady to 10 cents lower, the top price declining 5 cents to $10.80. The trade had only 13,000 compared with 15,000 a year ago, but. this was more than was .- received at any other major corn belt market. Establishment of the cattle mar. ket was slow and the trade had a :· weak undertone although a few early sales were steady. The replace- ·· ment market was -steady but cows /were dull, bulls weak, and vealers " 25 cents or more off. Cattle re.. ceipts are running the poorest in quality for this season in many years, attributed partly to the recent cold weather. Last week's average cost of slaughter steers, despite poor quality, scored a slight advance to $8.73. Indications on early rounds were that fully steady prices would b paid for slaughter lambs.

Prices how- ver did not go far in either direction and eld close to Monday night's closing quota- ions. There was no moisture of consequence n the southwest and the forecast is for air and warmer for Kansas with a little loudiness in Missouri and Nebraska. Crotn- called attention to reports of chinch ugs and hession fly In Indiana. Illinois," rkansas and Oklahoma where in spite of he very severe winter the hession fly has uffered but little mortality. The Winnipeg narket held rather steady. A little export tidiness was reported over night, about half niilion bushels. Continued dry weather in he southwest imparts a certain undertone firmness to the wheat market but the rice trend of Liverpool appears to be the omtnatlng factor. Oirn--Although the oats market was sub- ected to moderate selling pressure Tues- largely from local traders who are ather bearishly inclined because of the ood sizetf long open interest In the May uture. corn prices held well, some com- ilssion house support being imparted to iay corn around the 60% cents level.

NEW YORK. «P) -- Industria stocks led the market on an up ward swing Tuesday that carriec many issues 1 to 3 or more point higher. A better outlook abroad, com bined with encouraging domesti news, served to attract buyers to the equities division. The only fly in the bullish ointment, from a commission standpoint, was tha the rally was exceptionally quiet.

Steel, National Steel Case, American Smelting, Union Pacific, Southern Pacific, Chrysler Auburn, General Motors, Columbiai Carbon, Consolidated Gas, and North American. Foreign currencies were a trifle easier in terms of the dollar. Bonds improved.

They returned home Sunday CHAPTER 43 Why did Mr. Marsh make tha suggestion, Thora wondered with sigh of relief when Selwyn suggest ed that Ted, and not she, tike som coffee to Alec Babbas. She watche him toss his letters aside and picl up his pipe. "Miss Dahl ... "Yes, sir?" "Why . . ." He was holding a lighted match over the pipe bowl sucking the flame deliberately into the tobacco. "Do you know what a shiner is?" "Shiner?" she echoed vaguely "No, sir. I don't think I do." "Babbas 'has one. It's caused b; me hard object coming into con act with one's eye . . . causes dis coloration, slight swelling. In somi ircles, it is spoken of as a 'black eye.'" "Oh." "I'm no particular connoisseur .. of shiners . . ." Marsh was puffing deliberately . . . "but I'd be almos willing to wager . . . that the doo: iat hit Babbas had . . . knuckles.' He favored Thora with a sharp lance from under his drawn brows She looked back at him, complete y at a loss for words. "Your door, wasn't it?" Marsh took his pipe from his lips. Hi: mouth widened in a knowing grin. "Yes, sir," Thora replied unflinch ingly. 'I figured toat out," Marsh chuckled. "And he thought he was jetting by with it! Well . . . ie Urn. I wouldn't say anything abou t. He won't . I'll bet you a month's salary on that.' "Im ever so sorry," Thora murmured. There was something very Ike a twinkle in her own eyes. Mr Harsh understood! He was not gong to find fault with her. "Well, I am too ... that I didn't see it. I guess fellows like thai ick up some queer ideas of soda usages. It won't hurt him to find out that American girls are different. Feel better, now?" "Oh, yes . . . very much!" "Sit down a minute, if you're not busy. I don't get a chance to ight with you any more. Things going along to suit you, for the most part?" "ies, sir. Of course." "That's good." He was staring it her contemplatively, and Thora ound herself losing her recovered omposure. She had nothing to fear now from hat unhappy experience in her oom the evening before, but Mr. rlarsh evidently had something else n his mind. Could .it be Sherman ·ordon? Had he come back to Fair i.cres to report the progress to his uit? She could not discuss that rith Mr. Marsh. He might have an dea . . . after what Mr. Gordon ad said . . . that he should aid the ounger man's cause in some way. she could not endure that. For ome reason, it still rankled . . . he thought of the two men sitting ere together, discussing her fu- ure, her happiness. Thora glanced about her a trifle esperately in an attempt to find omething to say, to guide the con- ersation into more impersonal lannels. The library table furnished the needed inspiration. It was the first time she ever ad seen it in perfect order. There was an unwritten law at air Acres that the big table nev- was to be touched when the alance of the room had its daily usting. Its top was always a liter of books and papers, more or ess sprinkled over with pipe ash. But, today, all the accumulated isorder had disappeared. Only a ew books remained, piled neatly. Vnd the small typewriter, locked vithin its case. It looked very trange and unnatural. For some eason, Selwyn Marsh did, too. "How is the book coming along, dr. Marsh?" Thora asked, "Washed up." "Then you mean it is finished?" "Yes. Chucked it in the inciner- tor." ·'Oh! But why? And after all the ·ork you did on it . . ." "It was no good," the author ex- lained gloomily, his eyes fixed on the immaculate table top. "I got way to a fair start, and then . . . lings seemed to happen." "That is too bad." "I guess it's no loss to posterity, ve been slipping . . . haven't been ble to get my mind on things, some- ow. The place has been so damna- ly upset. Everything has changed. have the feeling . . . that it never ill be the same." Something in Marsh's tone caused hora to look at him closely. It ·as not only the disconsolate note n his voice . . . it was somehow re- ected in his appearance. He looked affled; his old air of arrogance eemed to have vanished. If any- ne ever had told Thora Dahl that ie would feel sorry for Selwyn larsh, she would have dismissed the lea as ridiculous. But she did . . . Perhaps he was worrying uncon- ciously over Wilma. How could he elp feeling uncertain about her fu- ure, even though he would ,try to onceal it? After all, he was her ather and . . . Oh ... It came to Thora like a flash, /hat Gordon had said about Mrs. ;eele's secret. If that were true, 'i. Marsh had good reason to feel tat life never would be quite the ame at Fair Acres, once its new istress was installed. Being a oman. Thora could vision what ould happen. Perhaps Mr. Marsh as experiencing a premonition. He ave a little sigh, as he looked up say: "I wanted to speak about some- ing, Miss Dahl. Mrs. Steele called e on the phone last night . . ." Thora's lips tightened. For come ason. she expected that. That Oman had hovered over her like a oud from the day she had en- red the Marsh home. It seamed as ough she always would. "Yes?' 1 was her polite response. ''She was all in a dither," Selwya explained. "You know, she's giving a small dinner tomorrow night for wilma and Alec. It seems they can't be properly engaged, otherwise. Well, her maid was unkind enough to sprain an ankle, or something. Dorothy is very much upset and asked me if I thought that you . .." "Yes?" "Why, she asked me if I thought you'd be kind enough to give her a helping hand under the circumstances . . . you know." "I will be very glad to help her, if she needs me," Thora answered quietly. "I told her that I didn't know . ; . that she'd have to ask you." Selwyn wheeled around in his chair. The old belligerence flared in his sharp eyes; the old harshness was in his voice. "Now, get this, Miss Dahl. I'm not going to have you waiting on anybody's table. That isn't your job. I told Dorothy if you were will- ing to supervise things for her, just to relieve her, it was all right with me." "That is quite all right . . . with me, too." "Well . . . just aa long as you understand that you don't have to do it. You're doing her a favor. And if you change your mind, it makes no difference. I want you to suit yourself." "Shall I get in touch with Mrs. Steele?" "No. Let her get in touch with you. She will." "Very well. Was there anything else?" "I guess not. When you get around to feeding his nibs upstairs, don't forget I said to have Ted take it up. Or Katie . . . if he isn't handy." Marsh chuckled. "Rather a tough break that Babbas had to spci! his lace just before the big show. One of you girls may have to lend him a powder puff. I hope tc Godfrey that he can't wear that spyglass now." Thora beat a dignifed retreat from the library before this topic might be discussed further.
