Lomson Brothers Market Letter CHICAGO--Wheat: There was a June scattered selling Tuesday morning, mostly by traders but as commission houses took July on resting orders the market held and later firmed, closing not far from Monday night's final quotations. Broomhall satd" there -was a continued absence of demand for cash wheat abroad and there \vos more pressure of Canadian Atlantic offers. Late In the session it was said that a cargo of Argentine wheat had been sold to the United Kingdom. May wheat in Chicago Tuesday sold about S cents premium over new Alay in Liverpool and about h cents premium over Winnipeg May. This is as wide as these price differences have been. There Is little change from day to day in the forcicn situation but the domestic price level for wheat appears to be readily maintained at outside selling pressure if o£ small proportions. Corn: Local traders sold com Tuesday morning but pressure on the u-hoTs -was of small proportions. There -was a little export business in American corn but mostly in the nature of parcel shipments. The Argentine weather, according to Broomhall. is favorable for the eariy harvest of com- PLAN SERVICES AT NORTHWOOD Mrs. F. W. Schmidt, 75, Dies at Home Following Illness NORTHWOOD -- Funeral s e r- vices for Mrs. F. W. Schmidt, 75, will be held Thursday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock at the home and at 2 o'clock at the Bantist church with the Rev. Carl Spieke of Sac City, recent pastor here, officiating. Mrs. Schmidt died Tuesday morning at her home here following a lingering illness. She was a member of the Eastern Sta^ the D. A. R. and thi CONVICT'S DAUGHTER Continued From Comio Page info a summer dress and tidied up her disordered hair. Her eyes in (he mirror were circled, and she looked smail and very tired. In spite of the dizziness that reminded her she had been twenty- four hours without food, she almost ran down the corridor to the clicking elevator. He was standing, hatless, in the hotel lobby, his tall figure erect, his sturdy legs spread slightly apart, bracing him, giving him that indescribable outdoor air that seemed so much a part of him. At sight of her, the brown eyes crinkled into the little half smile she had recalled so often with longing in the past week. She had thought she could be calm v/hen she met him, but the sight of him standing there brought the tears back to her eyes, instantly he was at her side, and had gathered her into his big arms. "Why, girl!" He looked down at tier reproachfully. "You're crying. What's wrong? What have they done to you?" "Oh, Jim!" She sobbed in earnest, then, unmindful of the clerk's interested eyes. "I waited for you to call. All night I waited. I thought you were--like the rest. I couldn't bear it, Jim--" "Easy, girl! Easy . . ." His arms held her close. "You didn't think I'd let you down, did you?" He sounded hurt. "You didn't call, and I--I've lost my job, and my landlady p-put nie out, and I--I'm so hungry. Jim!" "Hungry! Why, you little goose!" He laughed at that, and in spite of her own tears she smiled with him. It did sound ridiculous, now that she was with him. "I couldn't eat," she told him, half shamed. "I was so upset." "We'll fix that right away." His arm on hers, he started her toward toe hotel dining room. 'Seems I'm always feeding you," le joked. "You're the hungriest woman I know . . Here, we'll sit back here in the corner, and you can tell me all about it over a plate of ham and eggs." He hadn't received her message until just an hour ago, he told her, gravely. Mrs. Peterman had stuffed it beneath his door and it had been pushed under the edge o£ the rug. It was only by accident that he noticed it when he lid. He had come immediately laying off work for the day. He scowled and his fists clenched as he listened to her story o f yesterday's happenings. He, too, had seen the headlines and the pictures in the papers, and they had angered him. "It's been rotten having to read the stuff they've been printing about you, knowing half of it wasn't true, and 'not being able to do anything about it," he burst out. I could take a punch at every reporter in the lot. I know what they were doing to you! I've seen it done before--" He broke off, and Lona had the impression that he was remembering something that bad nothing to do with her. He looked so disturbed that she had an absurd impulse to comfort him For what, she didn't know. "Don't feel Uiat way about it Jim" She put a hand out to his, across the itile. 'It couldn't be helped, I guess " ,. s FJ: n "= d to come, back to himsell uicn. 'People have no right to hound you 'hat!" he declared. "You've done lothins. Id like to meet up with your Mr. Sanders asam. Calls himself a man--" -He couldn't help It, Jim, if he feels that way. My landlady, cither. What worries me Is that I don't know what to do ~ " ji? 1 '.' i he thousht o£ hunting another .-- that bothers roe. Eotag Places, and having people recognize me . . . I feel as if I'd like to crawl Into a hole somewhere and never come out " "Poor little Bit!!" He put his big hand over hers on the table and his sympathy made the tears threaten to well again "U you'd have gone hack on roe. Jim, . a--I a nave died, I guess," she told him her eyes hurt. For a moment he sat there, strokinc ier hand in silence. Then he got to his :cct abruptly, and came to her side ol the elosed-in restaurant booth- ''Listen Eirl. there's a way out o£ this li you want to take It." he brought out. His voice was husky. "You could marry me if you can stand it." The suddenness o£ the thing robbed Lona of words. For a moment she just itared at him. "Jim! You mean--" She 3roke off, to stare again, "You're asking TVC--or, but I couldn't do that! Not just to_get out of things. It wouldn't be fair:" I love you, girl! You must know that t love you; .I'm not much account I juess, and it wouldn't be much of a life Tor you, moving around from lown to town the way I do. I guess I haven't any right to ask you, but we sort of--belong together, you and me ... both of us are drifters. Do you think you could maybe love me--enough--·· His eyes -were pleading. *'Oh, Jim!" she managed to bring out. Jim. I do love you! How cuold I help it? iou've been so good. But I couldn't you're last doing this to be kind--·· "Girl, don't! . . . I love you! This Is a break for me. Can't you understand?" His arms closed about her there in the seml-seclustort of the booth, and she could feel his heart pounding. She found herself clinging to him, suddenly straining against the rough surface of his coal that smcljcd of tobacco. A feeling of safeness enveloped her. She felt she could stay there always. "Jim. oh, Jim!" she whispered again "You'll do it, girl?" He lilted her head with a hand beneath her chin and made her look at him. "Ycs, Jim." she said, then, and tried to hide her eyes in sudden shyness. "If you're sure you want me--" "Want you? You're funny, girl." He kissed her, then, gently. His lips against hers were hard and strong, as she had known they would be. His kiss felt familiar, somehow, as il it were something that belonged to her, for which she had been waiting.
