TWENTY-SIX MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 9 1936 HOGS MOSTLY STEADY TO 10 LOWER CHICAGO MARKET MOP UP 5 CENTS Sharp Fall Off in Eastern Shipping Demand Takes Away Support. CHICAGO, (/P)--Eastern shipping demand fell off sharply in the stockyards Thursday, depriving the hog and sheep markets of the kind of 'cotnpetitive support necessary to advance values. Although the hog · top rose five cents to $11, the general market ruled steady to 10 cents lower, with the late trade showing the decline. Old crop lambs were '.about steady but springers dropped sharply. The quality of swine receipts continued plain. Yesterday's supply was the poorest of the week so that even with a stronger market the average cost fell 3 cents to $10.56. Thursday's run was about in line with expectations, totaling 10,000. The cattle market was not as active as yesterday but prices held generally firm on a basis 25 to 40 cents higher for the week. The top sale was 511. She stock were firm, -bulls strong and vealers 25 cents or more higher. Because of a more numerous supply of spring lambs for the eastern ' trade prices declined sharply. Those weighing under 40 pounds sold at 514 to $15 and a few brought $16. Wednesday's best price was $18. Clipped lambs were strong to 15 cents higher. The early top_ for choice wooled lambs was ?10.85. COMBINED HOG KECKIl'TS OES J10INES, JK--V.

WHEAT MARKET DOWN AT CLOSE Increasing Reports of Ram and Snow in Drought Areas Cause. CHICAGO, W)--Increasing reports of rain and snow over southwestern drought areas acted as a weight on wheat prices Thursday as trade drew to an end.

CHAPTER 13 "CAN YOU remember what night that Miss Younger and Mr. Barn- more talked about a ruby?" I aked he maid of the dead actress. "Must have been lately," said Mrs. 'copies. "And it was one night A'hen Mr. Barrimore had brought her home. I remember now, it was wo nights ago..They talked a while in here, and I came in with some hot chocolate. Miss Younger always ikes a cup before she goes to bed." 'Do you always wait up for her?" 'Not always, only when she tells me to. She told me not to tonight, )ut I did anyway--for a while at .east until I fell asleep." "What was said about the ruby that night--two nights ago?" "Not much. I only caught the tail end of it. Miss Younger was asking Mr. Barrimore to describe the ruby to her, and then I handed her the chocolate, and they were silent until I left the room." "Miss Younger said nothing more about it to you?" "Nothing." "The police will be here shortly, I suppose, Mrs. peoples. They were at Van Every's when I left. One thing before I go. Did Miss Younger have any enemies?" ·Not that I know of." 'Did she get any letters--which might have been threats?" 'Not that I know of. A telegram came for her in her absence--of course I haven't opened it." She pointed to a small table, with a top of curly smooth marble. On it, on a apis tray lay a yellow envelope. "We'll open this, Mrs. Peoples. And I'll take the responsibilty." The envelope fluttered to the rug. I was staring at words not knowing vhat they meant. Mrs. Peoples came over and looked at the note with me. For it was not a telegram, but uad been enclosed in a telegram envelope. The note was typewritten, and did not have salutation, address, or signature. YOU WILL GET NOWHERE SEARCHING FOR MARGALO YOUNGER'S MURDERER. Mrs. Peoples and I glanced at each other, then perused the note again. She was the first to speak. "You're going to ask me when this came. It was about 1:30, for I thought it was Miss Younger at the door, and that she had forgotten her key. I took the telegram in, signed for it, and laid it there on the tray. Then I went back to my room to wait some more. In a while I was sleepy so I drowsed off." One-thirty. After the murder had been committed. The murderer had probably dashed off the note on a tvpewriter, found a telegram envelope, and a boy to send the message. I picked up the envelope, and glanced at it. Yes, it was a regulation envelope, but the name and address were pasted inside the small, thin, transparent opening. This made it seem like a telegram. Indeed, I myself had been shocked when I had'opened it. I expected to see a bit of yellow paper in my hand. Instead my fingers had come out with a slip of white paper, folded neatly under the short, pert message. Public Utility and Industrial Stocks Quoted by A. M.

It was. The envelope must have been taken apart, and then put together again. It was addressed to "Miss Margalo Younger, 1009 Fifth avenue, New York City." "A regular boy brought it, at least I think he was. He had a cap "on, with a sign. They usually telephone messages here, but I supposed that at night, they sent telegrams instead. At least that's what I thought," Mrs. Peoples was saying. I put the envelope on the tray, with the note beside it. The police would want it. A good clew. Then bidding Mrs. Peoples goodby, I left. She wanted to go to the undertaking establishment, but I persuaded her to stay until the police came. The elevator boy came after a short wait, and I asked him whether he had at any time in the evening brought up a messenger boy to Miss Younger's apartment. He said he had not. No telegrams had come during the night. I believed him. Whoever the messenger boy was, I knew now that he had climbed 10 flights of stairs to get to Margate's apartment. The boy claimed, too, that no one could get in the apartment house at night after 12, except by ringing the front doorbell. Except folk who lived there. They had keys. The bell in the elevator buzzed, and a red light showed on the board. Someone %vas below. When we reached the street floor, Keyes was standing pressing the bell. His eyebrows went up as he saw me. "You, Maughan?" he said rather sarcastically. "Yes. I've been doing a little work on my own. There's a good clew waiting for you upstairs." "Remember I'll be seeing you at noon in my office," he said as the lift whizzed him and three of his fellows up out of sight. Things were a little straighter in my head as I walked away from the big white stone building. Roy Barri- more was assuming gigantic proportions. Also the ruby. But first I had better go home, get a bath, and an hour's sleep. I had two appointments: The one of which Keyeg had just reminded me, and a date at the Ritz with Joyce at 5. And when I reached the desk at the hotel, I was informed by the clerk that a Mr. Barrimore had phoned several times during the evening. The last message he had left was to the effect that he would call on me at 11. I waited until nearly 12 for Bar- rimore, then' impatiently started out for Keyes' office. I had tried to locate Barrimore when lie failed to call, but could not find him listed anywhere. Homer Keyes was not in when I arrived, but his stenographer ushered me into his private office, and I sat, looking out the window, for perhaps a half hour before he came That he was worn out I could readily see. From his looks he had not been able to snatch a moment of sleep. His eyes, though, reflected none of his fatigue. They were as blue, as stern as ever. "I've been waiting,"- I said, taking another cigaret. A boy brought in some sandwiches and coffee, and the detective invited me to join him. I refused the sandwiches because I had just had breakfast, but joined him in the coffee. Keyes drank his black; three cups of it. "Haven't had any sleep," he grumbled, munching a sandwich. When the tray was carried away, he took a big cigar from his pocket, and after I hac refused one just like it. slid it into his mouth, with no attempt at a light. "Now!" He settled himself more comfortably in his swivel chair. I waited for what he had to say. It came soon enough. "Maughan, I suggest you come clean with me." His eyes sought mine coldly. "What do you mean?" "I mean exactly what I say. Come clean with. me. You know more about this than you've said. You know who murdered Margalo Younger." Then I saw the paper he had brought in with him, and was now spreading on his desk--the paper I had avoided buying all morning. The blatant headlines screamed at me. I didn't want to see them, didn't want to know about them. He took other papers just like it from his pocket, and placed them all together so I could see them. I closed my eyes to shut out the black type, Margalo's name, the murder word. "Tell me one thing. Did you murder Margalo Younger?" His voice was ominous. "Keyes, you know I didn't. At least you should by this time. How, in the name of Heaven, could I have murdered Margalo Younger?" "Well, then, who did?" "I don't know and you don't either." "Why did you go up to her apartment after you left Van Every's?" "I went to talk lo the maid, Mrs. Peoples. You know I was a friend of Miss Younger's." "Yes, I know, but you're not a detective, and you have no right to meddle." "If I choose to meddle, it's my own business. The thing happened under my nose, and I intend to find out who did it." "Noble of you, Maughan," he laughed sarcastically, "but that's my job." "Mine, too, Keyes, now." "Still you are keeping something from roe. I feel It. I want to know what it is." "I'm keeping nothing." (TO BE CONTINUED) Fruit Varieties Total 386.
