SIXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 20 1936 HOG PRICES ADVANCE 5 TO 15 CENTS CHICAGO RUN IS HELD TO 7,000 'Level Highest in More Than Month and Best in Six Years for March. CHICAGO, UP)--A limited run of T.ODO hogs imparted more strength to the market Friday and prices rose 5 to 15 cents to the highest level in more' than a month and to the highest for March in six years. The top rose a dime to $10.85 in active competition for the rather slim run, haJf of which was consigned direct to packers. The steer trade was generally steady but very uneven, bulk selling at 57 to ?8 and the best at $10. Some cows were 10 to 15 cents up and bulls were stronger. AH steers sold fully steady if not higher compared with a week ago, having regained the early losses. Receipts have come from widely separated feeding areas and while there has been a shortage of strictly choice weighty steers some of the new Mexican and Oklahoma offerings were considered good. Fat lambs sold mostly steady although heavier kinds were weak to a shade easier. Reports to the trade from Colorado indicate more than s. million lambs are in feedlots there and may be marketed in the next 60 days. About 300,000 lambs are being slaughtered weekly at the 20 principal packing centers. Hog Markets ,-\UDUKST HOGS.

S. government securities were actively steady. higher and other bonds The downward tendency of the major telephone stock continued to reflect this corporation's hearing be:ore the communications commission at Washington. While there was some nervousness still evident over the extent of ligh water damages and their ultimate effect on the earnings of var- ous corporations, most analysts jointed out that the rebuilding of louses, bridges and the demand for new equipment should stimulate many lines.

The weakness in coarse grains influenced local sentiment and buying support was of only moderate proportions. There was no rain reported in Uie southwest asain and indications are for fair Friday niqht and Saturday. The Liverpool market was tharply lo-.ver Friday and only a small export business was reported. Broomhall says that the increased demand from Europe this season nd who recent improved demand from the Orijnt is influencing Australian farmers to withhold their offerings and receipts are consequently diminishing. Local sentiment continues bearish in wheat in spite of the continued dryness in the southwest and help ia apparently needed from the action of Winnipeg and Liverpool to prevent sagging tendencies in the market. Corn-- Liquidati Friday with netv . under 60 cents and as low as it hs sold since Jan. 50. There was a little stop loss selling under tlic 60 cent level.

May corn sold CHAPTER 45 Sclwyn Marsh attempted to frown when he became aware of Thora's speechless gaze at his changed appearance in dinner clothes. Instead, he smiled a trifle sheepishly. "Well? Do I look as silly as I feel ?" "You . . . you look . . . nice." It was a stupid word to use, but Thora could find nothing better at the moment. "I hardly knew you," ^she added hastily. "I don't wonder," he agreed amiably. "I hardly know myself. Wilma insisted on my getting into harness tonight. Said the other fools were going to dress like head waiters and, as long as I was to be on the program . . . . Does everything look all right?" Since it would have been unthink able to tell Selwyn Marsh that h had transformed himself in to a vei distinguished-looking, and ham some gentleman, Thora Dahl con tented herself by tipping her hea critically to one side and remark ing: 'All except your tie. It's crooked. "I thought so. Can't do one those bows to save my soul. Wil you fix it?" He stood with his chin raise while Thora patted and pulled th black bow into a perfect knot. I brought a sudden memory. How sh had stood by this very window looking to Selwyn Marsh's face a he removed that cinder from he eye. That was the first time she ha seen him, and how long ago i seemed. And his hands had been s steady. Her fingers were tremblini . . . a little. "There." She stepped back an appraised her task. "That look much better. I must go now. I wil be late." "You're not punching a tim clock," be snapped. "Besides, Pat is going to run you over in the car." "Oh, no ... please. I'd rathe walk. It isn't far." "And I prefer not to have yoi cutting across lots and in anybody': back door. You'll drive around ti the front. Go out on the porch and wait for Pat. I'll call him." It was more than an hour late: that WJlma entered the library t find her father relaxed in his chaii puffing thoughtfully on his pipe. "Dad!" she exclaimed reproach fully. "You'll get your shirt crushed, sitting that way. And you have ashes on yourself. Stand up and le me dust you off." He complied with a muttered protest. "You're the handsomest thing I've seen in a long time," Wilma tolc him in a little burst of admiration as she flicked his shirt bosom with her handkerchief. "You almost take my breath. Do you know that you don't look a day older than Sherm?" "What do you want for that?" "My bracelet, if you'll be good enough to dig it out. And the largest ring." "Look here, Wilma. You're not going; to wear that thing tonight, are you?" "Of course I am. That's why I brought it out. I want to give your relatives an eyeful. Go on and get it, like a good boy." "It's yours," Marsh admitted, "but I don't like the idea of your wearing it tonight, it's not that sort of an occasion and we don't have cops on every corner out here, either." "How silly! If you and Alec and Pat can't guard me over there and back, you're not much good. Let me have it." "All right. Just head anybody off from coming in here for a minute. There's no use advertising where we keep it." He crossed to the fireplace and began fingering the molding of one of the wooden wall panels. In a moment, there was a dull clang and Marsh came back to the table with a small box in 'his hand. "There you are," he remarked. "Isn't it gorgeous?" Wilma asker, when she had slipped the blazing circlet over her slim hand and held it up for her father's' admiration. ·"You don't know how I value it," she began impulsively, then paused svhen she saw the grim expression on Selwyn's face. "You should," he answered shortly. "After all, it's . . . Hello." Alec Babbas strolled into the room. He was dressed for dinner and smoking a cigaret thrust in an amber holder. Marsh looked at him critically. The bruise on the younger man's face was scarcely noticeable in the fading light. And he was not wearing the monocle, to his host's secret satisfaction. "You look very fit.'' he observed. "I'm all right," Babbas admitted. "Look, Alec," Wilma interrupted, "how do you like it, when I'm dressed to match?" "It's quite becoming." "Dad was trying to make believe it wasn't safe for me to be going about with so much richness. I told him that you would protect ms." "I'll do my best But I'm not sure that Mr. Marsh isn't right." "You're both of you silly!" Wilrna exclaimed with a pout. Meanwhile, Thora was acquainting herself with her duties for the evening and following the fluttering Mrs. Steele about, from the kitchen to the diningroom. Back again. "I do hope everything is all right!" the hostess sighed, making one more inspection of the faultless table. "It is a small party," she confided to Thora, "but it's one of those affairs where everything has to be just so." "Yes?" her assistant murmured politely. "I'll say so. The Gordons you . know, are rich. They're accustomed to the best. And they're very critical. Between you and me, my dear. Frances Gordo'n is sweet . . . and a cat." Thora raised her brows p t r i f l e :it this iinim,itc rcvrlnUon. TI. didn't sountl much iikc Mr. Gordon's de- scription of his mother. But Mrs. Steele was hurrying on. "Mr. and Mrs. pryor are about as bad. Miss Pryor . . . she's his sister . . . is worse. They're cousins of Selwyn. George Pryor isn't nearly as well off as Selwyn and it hurts them. They're very quick to find fault. That is one reason I had Sherm come along. He's a peacemaker when that bunch geta together. I do hope I haven't made any mistake in seating." As nearly as Thora could tell, the arrangements' were perfect. Thanks to Mrs. Steele's painstaking preparations there would be very little for her to do save keeping a check upon Jim's movements. That young man had been subjected to countless rehearsals and Was standing- by, clad in a stiffly starched linen jacket and .owl-eyed with importance. Thora gave him a reassuring smile. Ducky Jim was all that stood between her and appearing before the dinner guests. If he should fail her! The situation somehow appealed to her sense of humor. Her experience with formal dinners was very slight, and she was now acting in a professional capacity. She was conscious of a sudden desire to see these people together, hear what they talked about. It was very evident that Selwyn Marsh was to have his seat at the head of the board. She would like to see him when he stood in his place and solemnly told these people that Wilma was engaged to marry All Bauja. As if everyone in the vicinity of Brookville didn't know it. A queer custom. (TO BE CONTINUED) LEGAL NOTICE .NOTICE OK SHKIUfrT'S SAI.K STATE OK IOWA. ny Gordo county, s^.
