TEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 8 1936 Hogs Mostly Steady to and in Some Cases 1 0 Cents Higher. CHICAGO, (-- The swine an cattle markets were strengthened again Wednesday by improved de mand from local killers and shippers and as a result prices were forced up to around the levels that prevailed Monday. Demand coincident with the Easter trade was very stimulating to the lamb department and light springers went up sharply to a 517 top, S2 over the best price paid during the Easter season last year and the highest mark for spring lambs in 5 years. Variations in receipts so far ti week have been the important factor in the livestock trade. Both the hog and cattle runs fell below advance estimates today and this was partly responsible for the improved demand from packers who sought to fill requirements. Hogs sold mostly steady to 5 cents higher although some sales showed advances of 10 cents. The top was up 5 cents to S10.95. Dressed pork prices BOW stand slightly lower than a year ago al- thou^h the current live market is around Sl.50 higher. Market ob servers said one reason for the low- .ijessj? Trice scale in the face " er · of increases "live costs is the fact chat Mcksis s rear ago were adding rcv;sssi2|r taxes to operating esibsises.

CHICAGO, L¥--Higher prices on wheat, up 1% cents a bushel in some cases, formed the rule Wednesday, although speculative demand lacked volume, especially on advances. The outstanding feature was news that the Canadian government wheat board had sold to exporters about 5,000,000 bushels of No. 2 northern wheat in exchange for futures. Much notice was also taken of unusual strength at Liverpool, where the market closed 74-1% cents higher. Wheat closed firm, %-lls cents above Tuesday's finish, May 95-95 Vs cents, July 85*1-85 % cents, corn %~$ cent up. May 60% cents, oats %- 5s cent advanced, and provisions varying from 20 cents decline to 12 cents gain. CHICAGO CASH GRAIN. (Wednesday Market) CHICAGO, LPi--Cash wheat, no sales reported.

S. department ot agriculture-- Quotations on western grown domestic wools [n Boston were purely nominal as thi result of a lack of demand. The undertone o; the market, however, was weak as there was not even the occasional purchase for ursen' immediate requirements that helped to maintain quotations on an even keel two to three weeks ago. Houses that had carried over limited quantities of old wools were filling to consider offers that were below recent ask. ing prices. INVESTMENT TRUSTS.

Another shipment of Australian wheat, approximately a quarter million bushels was taken by Italy. It is thought that the Italiansare likely to buy one or two million bushels more in the riear future. Two factors, the weather condition in the southwest and the trend of foreign markets, are the all important influences in the wheat market at the moment. Corn--Com prices were better Wednesday. There was some buying by local traders and the strength in wheat of course was a distinct help.

STOCK MARKET MOVES UPWARD Many Issues Are Pulled Up to New Highs for Past Five Years. NEW YORK, UP}--A slow but persistent rally in Wednesday's stock market pulled many issues into new high territory for the past five years.

Transfers approximated 1,650,000 shares. Some attention was again given European affairs as the league of nations conciliation committee met to devise an Italo-Ethiopian peace plan and the British protested against the alleged use by the Italians of poison gas. At the same time Mussolini told his cabinet that total "annihilation" of the African military-formation was necessary. Domestic industrial news still occupied much of the markets spotlight, with earnings reports making pleasant reading for bullish forces. Curb Market NEW YORK, m--A few firm spots in the specialty groups were the principal features of curb market trading Wednesday. The general run of oils. Industrials, metals and utilities backed and filled in a narrow trading range, with the trend a bit mixed in most cases.

Issues holding unchanged or losing minor fractious included Wright Hargrtaves, pioneer Gold, American Cyanamid "B," Cities Service and Electric Bond and Share. Bond Market NEW YORK, W)--New issues again diverted attention from listed bonds Wednesday, and while the underlying tone remained iteady, trading was quiet and price changes narrow. An issue of 5180,000.000 Federal Land Banks 3s topped the list of new offerings, which included also $26,835,000 of Union Pacific 3^3. In addition, there were several new stock offerings for toe investment community to choose from. In the corporate division of the listed mar- cel, fractional advances were scored by American and Foreign Power 5s at 77 \s. American Rolling Mill 4 Vis at 125, and Southern Pacific 4^s at SO-li.

READ THIS FIRST: Margalo Younger, an actress, Is found mysteriously dead in the home of Do\v Van Every, a collector ol rare jewels, shortly after Van Every has recounted the gruesome history of the famous Camden ruby to the actress, whom he had just met, and Gary Maughan, an acquaintance. She had been wearing the huge niby during the historical account against Van Evcry's wishes, scoffing at his description of the jewel as a "murder stone." The doctor calls the police when he finds it a case of murder, and explains the actress died from a sharp needle-like instrument found at the base of the brain. Detective Keyes begins questioning Van Every and Maughan, the only others in the room at the time of Margalo's murder, when Joyce, Van Every's young niece, who lives with him, enters. Laura Kandall, elderly companion to Joyce, is brought in for questioning. Soon, the Japanese servant, tells of a Mr. Barrimore telephoning for Van Every, in his absence during the evening, on important b u s i n e s s . Jiaughan, determined to help solve the murder, departs for Margalo's apartment to talk with her maid. (NOW GO ON WITH THE STOKY) CHAPTER 12. I RANG THE bell twice before anyone answered at Margalo's apartment. The woman who finally came eyed me with suspicion, she very evidently had gorten out of bed to answer the door. Margalo's maid, I knew, although I had caught only a glimpse of her at the theater, when she was helping her mistress on with her coat. "My name is Maug-hac," I said, as I stepped into the room. "Oh yes," she dropped her formid- a.ble air. and smiled. A nice smile. Her kimono was wrapped tightly about her middle-aged, rather stout figure. "Although it's too early for Miss Younger to see you. She doesn't rise until noon." I looked at the coat I carried, and hesitated. Even in Margalo's apartment nothing was known of her death. As kindly as I could I explained to the woman--about her mistress, and then silently handed her the coat. At first I thought Mrs. Peoples-I found out her name soon after-was going to faint. Her face went gray, and she tottered down on her knees. Quickly I raised her up, and helped her to a chair. Then running wildly through the apartment, I brought her a glass of water. She gulped it down and sat staring at me, her eyes dull, her lips colorless. "Don't tell me it's true," she moaned pitifully. "We have to face it." I was sorry for the woman. Her grief was so terrible. She must have loved Margalo very much. The apartment was new to me. I had not seen it before. Everything about it expressed Margalo. The soft velvety rug on the floor, the fragile, gilt furniture covered with green satin damask, the heavy, silk- drawn drapes at the long, story-high windows, puffed a little in soft folds. The tables, formal, the vases, bric-a- brac--Margalo. Everything. The place breathed her--waited for her --she would would never come back. "I knew it," Mrs. Peoples said at last. "I warned her only yesterday morning, because it was then I turned down the cards--only yesterday morning. They have been bad for a week." I didn't understand what she meant, so said nothing. "Every day I tell her fortune-^-by cards. I'm 'a great believer, but she isn't, of course. Laug-lis at me, but regardless of that wants to know every day what the cards have told for her. Three times a day usually I sit down and tell her fortune. She never is with me when I do it. I can work better alone. For five years I've done it. Seen things that people wouldn't believe." "Yes?" I urged more to humor the woman than anything else. Some of the grayness left her face. "All week the cards have been bad for her. She's asked me what they were, and I didn't telj her the truth. I couldn't bear to. Couldn't bear to hurt her, even if she didn't believe in them. I usually tell them in the Public Utility and Industrial Stocks Quoted by A. M. Schanke ana Company," Telephone 1300, Mason City.

I did this morning. It was terrible what those cards told me. Murder! Don't laugh. It's true. Murder, as plain as I'm looking at you. The murder cards all around her, black, reversed, spades, with the knave sticking a knife into her. And the king standing by letting him. I was frightened, because I believe. When you called, Mr. Maughan, I awakened her to answer the call. After she had made her appointment with you for breakfast at 12 I told her to 6e careful, prayed her to be careful, with tears in my eyes. I wish now I had gone down on my knees. She might have believed and been here--now. "She laughed, and told me not to be silly like she always did. Poor dear! A better mistress no woman ever had. Then she went and w'len I told her good-by, I warned her again to be careful. I didn't say why she should be careful, because I didn't want to frighten her even if she didn't believe. As soon as she left, I spread out the cards again, thinking they would come out different. I shuffled them, and they-Lord--now that I think of it! The murder cards! I dared not lay them out again. "At supper, which I always get for her at 5 o'clock, I said nothing, only watched her closely. Then after supper, she rested a while. I knew she was going out with you after the theater. I stayed close by her when she was off stage." "It's just a coincidence, your cards " "No, they told the truth! Tou know it! Didn't you tell me just now that she was murdered? Didn't you? I didn't make my warning strong enough:" Her body rocked to and fro on the chair. "Mrs. Peoples!" I said sternly. I would get nowhere with this superstitious woman if I wasn't firm. "This isn't finding the murderer. What I want you tell me is this. Who were Miss Younger's visitors? Have you ever heard any threats against her life 1 Was there anyone who came up to the partment tonight looking for her?" 'She had lots of visitors. Lots. Some women, but mostly men. And of the men Roy Barrimore comes most." Barrimore! That was the name of the man who phoned Van Every tonight! "Who is this Barriraore?" "He's--in love with her, of course. They all are. Even you, I suppose." "No, Mrs. Peoples. I was once--" "Well, it is just tie same. They were all in love with her once, or are now." 'Was she in love with Barri- more?" 'I don't know. Sometimes I think so. He was angry, I know, when she called him today, just after you called, and told him she wouldn't see him"today." "Had she been planning to?" "Yes, she was going out with him --after the theater, but she broke her engagement. He came up to the apartment just after she had left to breakfast with you, and asked me where she was. I told him. Miss lounger always wants me to be frank with her callers." "How did he act?" "He was angry, as I said, but tried not to show it. Jealous I suppose, like they all were, all Miss Younger's men." : 'Who else comes here a good deal?" "Oh--Manual Gonzales comes a lot. He's a protege of hers. A poet." "Has he a jealous disposition ?" "Fairly. Although, he knows his case is hopeless. He has more sense than Mr. Barrimore. Mr. Barrimore seemed to think Miss Younger would marry him." "Were they engaged?" "I tell you I don't know. Sometimes Miss Younger seemed to be in love with him, and sometimes she didn't. I know her as well as anyone in the world, and I still don't really know her." I nodded. I thoroughly understood Mrs. Peoples. "I've been with her for six years --night and day. She's like a daughter to me--" "Did anyone come to the theater tonight to see her? Barrimore or anyone else? Except, of course, myself and Mr. Van Every." "Mr. Barrimore didn't come, but a girl came, and said Miss Younger had sent for her." "Can you give me a description?" "A young girl not more than 18, with a green dress under a white ermine coat. Green slippers. Very blond, short hair." Joyce, I knew. "Did -you hear what Miss Younger had to say to her?" "No, they talked alone. Miss Younger sent me from her dressing room. The girl was in with her for 10 minutes." "Now, Mrs. Peoples, another question. Do you know anything about this clipping?" I showed her the clipping I had found in the pocket of the mink coat. She read it over carefully, before she answered. "I did not see Miss Younger cut it out, but I gave her the Dispatch to read when she went into her bedroom to rest. She must have seen it there. I remember when I fixed up the bed I found a small pair of scissors on it." "Did you ever hear her mention the Camden ruby?" "I don't remember the name of the ruby, but it seems I did hear her and Mr. Barrimore talk about some ruby one night."
