(--Pi--Medium and low priced rail issues continued to push forward in the bond market Thursday, scoring gains of fractions to a point or more. Other sections of the market were-steady .and quiet-shortly before noon. , . Demand for carrier bonds was altrlbuleo in investment circles to the opinion that the rebound of Lrade and industry in the recently Hooded sections and the general force of recovery will benefit the railroads. Liens up fractions to a point or more included Baltimore Ohio 4 Ibs ot 1960, Missouri Pacific 5s. Nickel Plate IVjS, St. Paul 5s and Illinois Central 4";s. In the U S. government sector supply and demand remained In approximate balance with little activity. Slightly higher in Ihe corporate division -were Goodyear 5s, Union Pacific 4s and Western Union 5s. The foreign list was quiet and mixed. To have this happen--hen "We will soon have Narro's report. He's your physician, isn't he?' "Yes, I've had him for years. He loiows 'his business." · Although I was listening intently, I could hear nothing in the library. Soon had come into the bedroom from the hall and was standing waiting his master's orders. Van Every however, did not seem to notice- him. He was looking at the ruby blankly, seeming to see it, and yet not to see it. The silence began to get on my nerves so I arose, and started to pace the floor. The second floor ot Van Every's house, like most old New York houses, held only two big rooms, I decided, the library, which was large, and the bedroom, which was equally large. I paused m front of a great chest of drawers, and casually noticed a small miniature, framed beautifully, standing on the top The face was vaguely familiar. Of course, it was Joyce. As a child. Her »olden curls were held with a bis bow 'of blue ribbon, a bow as as her quaint, unsmiling face. to make a newspaper holiday. Van Every was still in his chair, Soon standing near him. Narro was taking a long lime. I glanced at my match. Two o'clock. As late as that? Margalo, Van Every, and I must have arrived about 11:30. At least tnat. No, I had forgotten; we had eaten before we came. We must have reached Van Every's house about midnight. My ears caught a murmur in the library. Then silence again. I was tense. Narro must be coming back. Van Every, too. looked up quickly. "Taking a long time," I mumbled, more to hear my voice, any sound at all then wait in this deadly 'silence. Soon's eyes were turned toward the library. Then Van Every and I sprang forward. Narro's head had appeared through the curtains, beckoning us. I entered the library first. Inadvertently my eyes sought the couch. I could see nothing, not even the gleam of Margalo's hair under the light. A blanket covered the form on the sofa. "I have called the police, Van Every. They will be here presently. It was all I could do." "Police!" I sang out. "Yes, Maughan. It is--murder!" I could not speak; I could only look at Narro's dark cast, unsmiling face. I heard Van Every's voice asking something, and Narro's 'answer, "I'll explain when the police 'me." Margalo murdered! I could not believe it, would not! How could she possibly have been murdered with me sitting near her, almost touching her? Van Every on the other side, not more than six feet away. How My brain was whirling with unanswered questions. I sought a re* ply in Narro's eyes, but he sat quite still, smoking, in the chair I had occupied during the story Van Every had told. He was looking at nothing in particular, but his eyes would not meet mine. Van Every was standing, dumbly, OUT OF THE P R E S S B O X (Continued from Sportj rage) nainent until Sunday morning with their expenses paid by the state association naturally t h o s e schools able to do it pay for the keep of the boys after they are eliminated but there are some, and not few in number either, that can't stand the strain on the athletic treasury. * * # "It's surely a fact that the boys make the tournament possible .and further the association is well equipped with funds to go the full route and show the boys a good time . . . no entertainment is provided other than the games."

CHICAGO--Thursday \Vhcat-As the Liverpool market was lower Thursday morning, selling was preaent and continued at intervals during the rest of the session, closing prices being about the low of the day. July and September both sold at new low figures on the crop but as there was a little more pressure on the May lhan on tho deferred futures the July and May difference held around 10;ic during most o[ the session. Winnipeg was extremely weak. Liquidation was present in that market as well as some selling from this side of Ihe line The wheat market aPPears to be under the'influence of liquidation and the weakness in Winnipeg is a litlle disconcerting as well as the relatively small amount of export business. However after such a sharp b-eak in the wheat market we would use care in selling the market during declining periods. Corn--Prices held very well Thursday considering the decline in wheat.

It was four years since I had seen Van Every. It didn't seem that long. Joyce must be quite a. young lady, now. All of 18 or 19. Four years ago we nad looked at tie Khonivar diamond. Tonight we had seen the Camden ruby. And this had happened. I wondered whom I could call to tell about Margalo. She had lost her parents in early girlhood, and i knew of no living relatives. I remember I had thought it strange that she should be so alone m the world. Making her own way,, always. Fifteen years ago girls didn t to that. They Had families who took oare of them and sheltered them from the world. Now, it was different. Girls are doin ? all sorts of things and it is accepted as a matter of course. Her manager must be told, fane would not appear for the evening performance-1-for any performance, ever again. There would be newspa- pl? reporters to see-they would want all the details. I couldn t tell them about the ruby and its story I would consult Van Every. The newspapers didn't need to know about the jewel. I knew how they would seize upon it, weave it into ffidr atoiiea uSSl they had built up the ruby in his hands, unable to realize yet the tragedy that had happened in his library. I fumbled for a cigaret, lighted it, and threw it away immediately. It tasted bitter to me. horrible. The room was the same, except that Margalo was lying under the blanket on the couch. There was the table in the same place, three glasses on it, two of them empty, one full. Margalo's. She had not drunk it. Had she been dead throughout the tale Van Every had spun? Impossible! Her ash tray, with the cigaret now all cinders, someone had placed on the table near the glasses. Narro, probably. Margalo murdered! Again I fought with the facts. All I had to go on was what Narro had said. Murdered! If it were true, Vho had done it? I could think-of no one. I, who thought I knew so much about Margalo, knew so very, very little. Almost nothing. She hadn't been shot, God, no! If she had, I would have heard the report of the gun. Even with a silencer I would have heard it. But Narro would explain presently when the police came. Police! Margalo! It was all too terrible. I sank on a chair, away from the couch, away from the burden it held, away from the fire. Presently there were footsteps on the stairs, and Boon's head appeared in the open doorway. Back of him, towering above him, were three men. They brushed him aside and entered the room. "Dr. Narro?" cne of them asked. Narro rose and half bowed. "I am Dr. Narro." "Keyes is my name, captain of detectives. This is Dr. Frank, and Bucky Harris Smiles Over Hurling Job by Two Stars MACON, Ga., UP)--Bucky Han-is was smiling Thursday. He had reason to he happy for Earl Whitehill and Jack Russell turned in the best job the Washington mound staff has displayed this season when the Senators blanked the Reds 8 to 0 Wednesday.

He spent Wednesday having his foot treated while Eric McNair played his position in the exhibition game with, the Newark Bears. Detective McManus." There were introductions all around after that, and after they were over Keyes tore the blanket off the still -figure on the couch. A low whistle escaped his lips. "Margalo Younger!" he exclaimed. "This is serious business." "I think so," Narro agreed. "I will explain hurriedly my part in this and then," he pulled his wa.tch from his pocket, "I'll have to go." "Go on," Keyes ordered. "Maughan called me from here Red Hope for Fair Skies After Rain-Soaked Defeat MACON, Ga., LT)--The Cincinnati Reds were hoping for fair skies after Wednesday's rain-drenched defeat as they faced the Senators in the third of their four game series.
