.FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 1 · 1937 HOG AND CATTLE PRICES ADVANCE STEERS STRONG JO 25 CENTS UP Swine as MucH as 10 Cents Higher With Top Up to $10.30. G H I C A G O , VP) -- Livestock prices in the hog and cattle departments advanced Monday but in the sHeep sheds values were lower. The price movement in most cases reflected supply conditions although there was some stiffening of. wholesale meat values. Livestock coming into the yards IHW reflect comparatively high E rices b£ feed. Quaity recently had een plainer. Monday's run of steers was the plainest of the season. ' This ' tended to increase the value 'of best finished beeves because of the comparative scarcity, and as a result the few good to prime steers with weight available sold on a strong to 25 cents higher market, top rising a dime to a new peak of'$14;75, highest since January, 1936, and with that exception, highest in almost two years. For the .bulk o£ the ;cattle crop, however, prices were practically unchanged: although some sales showed slight advances. Very little in the run sold!: above .$12. ·. Traders called the hog market fully steady, with a few choice swine tending upward as much as 10 'cents. Top rose a dime to $10.30. ; · . · ! . Fat lambs were very slow and in the absence of many early sales traders said indications were that prices were mostly 25 cent's lower, or-around $10.75 down. Wholesale beef carcass values showed no change, the range holding at 10 to 19 cents a pound, but pork loins were unchanged to %c higher, .the range being 16 to 20c .

NEW YORK, (,1)--Mixed tendencies prevailed in Monday's lock market. Several steel, rail, rubber, oil, merchandising and specialty issues vere in moderate demand. Losers vere plentiful near the final hour. A jump in steel mill operations o the highest level since 1929 elped to prop the list but did not nspire exceptional buoyancy. Vading came almost to a stand- till around noon when the sup- ·eme court convened. Decisions handed down seemingly' had little effect on the market. Dealings were pathetic most ol he time.

UflYTBffT I FORGET CHAPTER 33 RUSSELL didn't say anything more to Janet while they danced but when the dance was over he led her gently out'toward the garden. Then he found a bench and asked her to wait for him. He was gone for only a little while, a little while in which Janet reflected: 1 will not think of Joel. If I do I'll probably find myself crying on Hussell Bede's shoulder. He's that kind of a man. He makes you want to tell him the story of your life. Janet had never met anyone before who affected her that way. It was usually Janet who did the listening. He came back with two plates' loaded with salads and sandwiches which neither of them touched. "Now what is it that I have that disappoints you?" she asked softly. "A husband," he answered at once. "I used to think that men who made a fuss about'their wives going crazy over movie heroes were stupid, but now I know hosv they feel. Only more so." Janet really didn't understand and she said so. "It's plain, isn't it? W h y shouldn't I be jealous? There are thousands upon thousands of women who think they're in love with your husband and would lay down hearts and hands for him and he has to be married to you." Janet laughed. "Mr. Bede, you say the nicest things!" He groaned, "D o n't, Janet. Please don't give me an ingenue's line. One more gurgle and I'll be finished. I expect better things of you." "All right, I'm sorry. But you mustn't expect too much of any nan's wife. I'm doing the best I an pretending that I'm a femme atale." "You'll never have to pretend hat, Janet." He never called her anything else but by her first name, then or later. "You're a langerous woman." She laughed sincerely then. "Yes, you are. You're the wom- n that many men wait for. You're not a predatory female gotten up vith blandishments. You're no inema version, you're the real hing and when a man realizes hat, he fits you into his dreams md that is what makes it fatale." Janet said, "I have a feeling that . oughtn't to sit here and let you ;ay things like that to me but 'm too weak to do anything about LEGAL NOTICE CORPORATION NOTICE PUBLIC NOTICE is hereby siven that corporation named Crescent Electric Supply Company of Mason City has heen formed under the laws ot Iowa with its principal place of business at Mason City.

RALPH S. STANBF.RY. Attorney for Plaintiffs, I really enjoy it." He was silent then. He was ninking amazedly that perhaps he seldom heard these things. He lidn't know anything about Joel 'aynter--he might be a right chap --but he knew that a girl like Tanet married to a man like Joel, vould play a secondary part in heir joint lite. The compliments vould be for Joel. "What do you do when you hear hese things?" he · asked after a ong ' moment. "Do''" Janet returned, thought- ully. "Why I don't 'do' anything or the simple reason I've never icard them before. I guess the jnly thing I can do is to change he subject. Have you . . . ? ' ' "Don't ask me if I've read any ;ood books, lady, or I'll take you jack to the wading pool and douse rour pretty head." Janet felt relieved that the con- n-sation was taking a lighter urn. She said: "I was only going to ask you if ·ou had any idea what time the ireworks start? I've a hangover rom my childhood about fire- vorks. I love them! I, oh! and, ah! md wait with bated breath lor he American flag at the end." Russell knew that their brief in- jrvie'w was over. He picked up heft plates and put them on the ray on which he had brought hem. "Come on," he said. "I'll stand in jack of you to catch you when you )end over to see the bursting lombs." . . _Yes, Jane't thought, he is the :ind of a man who would always ie in back of a woman when- :ver she needed him. But Russell wasn't in back oC iei- for long. He was, after all, the ;uest of honor and Caroline dragged him from one group to mother. . ' Away from him, Janet's hough Is returned to Joel and in spite of her enthusiasm about fire- vork?, she did not see the ex- jloding stars and streaks of. bi'il- iant color before her eyes. A miserable, sickening ihirig vas happening to her. Something he had fought to keep out of her/ nind these few weeks since Joel and she had been having separate dates. She was trying to shut out the )iclure born in her imagination. She was seeing Nina Harley arid Joel together.-It was Carol Griest nil over again. What were they jaying? Where were they? At \ 7 ina's house a mile beyond her own where Nina would be saying, 'Come in for a nightcap," or Joel vould suggest stopping for some- hing to eat. It'll go on and on this way, she .bought, and some day I'll find 've either stopped caring or else ''11 blow up and scream arid .here'H be Ititle bits of pieces of me like these fireworks all over the place. She felt a littleu Sorry for herself, thinking -of her sacrifices to jeep her marriage intact on the shifting sand foundation. For the first time in the three rears of her marriage, she wished that Joel were something else other than what he was. She wished that he were a ... an instructor in a boy's school, an engineer on a train, anything but a nan whose associates were beautiful women of standards different from her own. She wished that women had a little more sportsmanship and decency about other women's husbands. Particularly icr own who seemed to be fail- meat for every siren. She thanked her stars, looking up toward them in the peaceful icavens above her, that she trusted Joel, that she had respect for him and faith in his faithfulness. But even as she thought that, she told herself, I don't really know. I don't really know and I can't bear it! She was sitting in a chair on the veranda of (he Maynards' house. It was dark there and she slipped sut quickly and ran across the back lawn toward the playhouse whore she had left her bathing togs. She got her things quickly and went toward the garages to look for her chauffeur. She heard a whistle at her back and turned as Russell Bede came up to her. "I lost you," he said, "but I'm taking you home if you're going." "Yes, I'm going," she said rather breathlessly. "But do you mind if I ask you to let me go alone?" She couldn't have him with her. She had to be alone. Emotions h e r e t o f o re unexperienced had stirred her up, unbalanced her and fatigued her. "Of course I don't mind," he said. "Not if I can see you again. May I come to call on you tomorrow?" "I'd like (o have you," she said and gave him her hand. "At 5," he said and closed tho door of her car for her. Her ihoughis, which had nothing to do with Russell Bede, beat against her temples and her heart pounded so that her head ached with a dull thudding pain when her car swung into the drive o£ her house. There were lights, she noted, in her living room. It must mean that Joel was at home. Relief was painful to her. She had meant to go directly to her room and close the door without looking to see if Joel was in his room. She was so afraid he wouldn't be. "That you, Jan?" Joel called from the living room. She went to the door swiftly, Joel was lying on a lounge in his pajamas and robe. "I couldn't sleep," he said. "I guess I was jealous. I got thinking about that guy chasing you around nil evening. You lay - off those eastern' millionaires, Mrs. Paynlcr." Mrs. Pnynter felt as though the gates of heaven had opened lo her. (To Be Continued)
