Local Livestock HOGS MASON CITY-- Far Thursday New York, (/?} --Specialties, notably liquors, enjoyed a mild recovery bender in Thursday's stock market while many leaders elsewhere were unable to raise much" of a come-back thirst. Earnings, actual and prospective, in addition to another batch of relatively ' pleasing dividends, provided the principal props for favorites. Rails, though, had to contend with a sizable drop in December income for most roads. , Fractional irregularity prevailed near the close although there were a few swings of 1 to 2 points either way. Dealings were slow at intervals and transfers approximated 700,000 shares.
