FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 15 Â· 1936 Â« HOG MARKET STEADY TO 1Q_HIGHER TOP OF $10,95 5 CENTS HIGHER Dealings Are Fairly Active : on Weights More Than 180 Pounds. " CHICAGO, UP)--In the hog runs, trade was fairly active Wednesday on weights above 180 pounds Some lots scored an increase of 10 cents over Tuesday's prices, and a top or. $10.95 was registered, an increase of 5 cents. Packing houses were only mildly interested in the first rounds of activity They divided 3,500 billed to them directly and were only in seed of supplementary purchases at steady figures. Â·Â· It was noted that hog price fluctuations have been extremely narrow this spring, indicating that slaughter supplies have come close Within the last 10 days the average cost of droves here varied scarcely 20 cents per cwt. Tuesdays average cost of 510.61 was only 1 'cent higher than the preceding day. The best steers and yearlings sold slowly Practically all early sales end bids were 25 cents lower. An extreme top of S10.85 was paid for yearlings. Heifers sold steady to 25 ients lower, the best going for $8 65. A bulge in cattle marketings this week has favored the.buyers. Old crop lambs dropped 15 to J.J cents Wednesday and sold barely active to local interests. The shipping demand was also narrow. There were no springers. Killing classes brought prices that were about steady. Hog Markets MIDWEST HOGS.

Accidents caused by cars on the wrong side oÂ£ the road last year killed 3,500 persons and injured 102-000, according to figures of a member company of the National Bureau of Casualty and Surety Underwriters. Passing on the wrong side and passing a standing street car killed 250 and injured 6000 more These harrowing numbers make it clear that the driver who does not pass properly is a peril to himself and everybody else on the road. According to authorities, improper passing is the result either of ignorance or unjustified haste. It is always inexcusable. Since it implies accelerated speed, the likelihood of a severe collision is greater. The driver who passes improperly usually does so constantly --until Salted by a collision. Avoid being this kind of a road menace by always making sure you have 500 feet oÂ£ clear road ahead oÂ£ you before passing another vehicle. Do not cut out and in sharply. Drive out of your lane gradually, sound your horn, pass and string smoothly back. Pass on ttie left, never oil the right, except where street cars require it. Pass street cars only when they are moving or when their descending passengers are protected by a safety isle. Pass at a reasonable speed. Stay in line rather than weave through traffic. The good driver observes the above rules. When he passes a car, it is fluid motion, pretty to watch. He does not strain his own nerves, those of the driver he is passing, nor those of a driver approaching. And, If his car is in good mechanical condition, he endangers nobody. days.
