TWENTY-TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE. APRIL 16 Ml 1936 CHICAGO HOGS HIT $11 TOP AGAIN LEGAL NOTICE MftRKET STEftDY TO 5 CENTS UP Cattle on Steady Basis and Lamb Prices 10 to 15 Cents Lower. CHICAGO, UP)--For the seventh time in eight weeks, hogs reached a $11 top Thursday without passing The appearance of this price even as an outside quotation has since mid-winter developed a degree of resistance on the part of buyers that has prevented further advance. Traders said apparently the revolt against Sll hogs has been dictated tc some extent by the fact that it has not been possible to unload any more dressed pork on the wholesale markets at the prices .which must be charged for loins cut from hign priced hogs. Current loin quotations of 16V to 21 cents a pound wholesale are substantially the same as two months ago. The general hog market was steady to 5 cents higher Thursday with a few sales up a dime. The run of 10,000 was considered meager. The cattle market was on a fairly steady basis because Wednesday's receipts were liberal and a decline resulted. Best steers sold at $10.10 but the .bulk were quoted at ?S.TS down to $7.50. She stock and stockers and feeders were weak to lower. Lambs were. 10 to 15 cents lower The early top for wooled offerings was $11.25. OTTUMn'A--Boss unchanged.

WHEAT MARKET CLOSES NERVOUS Tumbles in Late Dealings; Cora Prices Uneven at Close. CHICAGO, (fl 5 )-- Losses of 1% cents a bushel in wheat values resulted late Thursday from unsettled weather conditions over domestic drought regions southwest . and west. The volume of wheat trade was fairly large. Much of it was in the nature of spreading operations in which May wheat was bought against selling of July. Wheat closed nervous at the same as Wednesday's finish to Hi cents lower; May 977 8 @98; July 89'i @%; corn % off to '/* up; May 61@61%; oats H @ % down, and provisions unchanged to 1 cents decline.

Corporate liens developed no outstandin feature during the early trading, but virtual ly all groups were steady. Investment support In the federal sectio accounted for early gains ranging from l-32nd to 7-32nds of a point. Treasury 3Hs 1946, led the upward move. In the guaran teed department the best action was con trlbuted by Federal Farm Mortgage 3s an Home owners Loan corporation 3s. In light trading junior rai- liens moved un evenly, though price changes either way we narrow. Loans of Baltimore and Ohio, chesa peake -and Ohio, New York Central, Illino Central and Great Northern Avere traded t fractionally higher values. Those of Nick Plate. Southern Railway, Missouri Paclf and St. Paul s\id off a little. Utility and industrial classifications showed similarly narrow movements, with gains predominating. In the bond section of the curb exchange interest was aroused by 19 point jump in Western Newspaper Union 6s, of 1944. On fair volume this bond moved up to 65 from a previous final of 46. The move followed the company's announcement that full Interest would be paid on the company's funded obligations. Foreign issues were dull, with prices generally steady.

"My fault that the ruoy story got out, Maughan," Van Every declared. "Entirely my fault I was pleased, of course that I had the ruby. I told my lawyer--I swear I couldn't keep it to myself. I was pleased as a small boy with a new bicycle. You don't know. As I say, I told my lawyer and he must nave tipped off the papers. At any rate when the reporters came to see me about the ruby I told them the ptory. Who wouldn't ? But I was cuvrful in what I said.. I didn't tell them from whom I purchased it. The purchase price, yes, but not the former owner. I would have had to tell them too check on the convent proved ttat neither sister was there. Who they were I don't know. I worried about them for years, damming myself for letting the ruby slip through my fingers in that crazy fashion "I tried to trace the jewel through the great markets. It was apparently lost; had dropped out of everything. I put detectives on it, spent a small fortune trying to locate it, more because of the two nuns tban anything else. Yet they had seemed so genuine at the time I did not doubt their story until I called my friend. And yet now that I think of it I was a fool to believe them--a likely story indeed! Clever disguises, that was all. , "I blamed myself incessantly for not offering them a higher price that day. Obviously that's what tney wanted. , . "But, Maughan, Monday of last week--you won't believe me, but it s the truth--they came back. Soon recognized them when they came to the front door. He had let them in 10 years ago. Good servant, Soon. I happened to be out--in the neighborhood, though, so he told them I was'in, but busy, and would be with i| them directly. Then he telephoned Jj for me and I came flying. They were tie same. I could" see no change in the sisters. Then, one seldom can. They always seem ageless to me. "The one who had talked before, talked again. She gave her name . 7 Sister Theresa. We continued our conversation of 10 years age--as if there had been no time between. Certainly not years. I asked them no questions, and they asked me none. I said not a word to them of my discoveries 10 years ago. The ruby was what I wanted, and 1 bought it. Offered them one price after another until they were willing to sell. I'm not a fool, Maugnan, BO I examined the ruby for an hour--I have a small laboratory off my bedroom. I was convinced it was what I wanted, that it was the same jewel I had examined 10 years before. "We struck a price--?70,000. I'm not a man to give that for nothing. [ started to make out my check, when Sister Therese said they wanted casn. Soon was the one who went to the bank to get the cash.

As it was I probably went too far. But now, I'm not so fond of my ruby. I can't bear to look at it. You don't blame me? I shall sell it as soon as I can. I bad planned to keep the stone, never let anyone wear it. I was going to let it lie in my safety deposit box with my ether jewels, glad only in the knowledge that I had it. I admit that last night I was somewhat concerned when Miss Younger took it and put it on. But not so much. The stories about the ruby were just stories, I thought. There could be nothing to them. Now, I know there is something to them. I'm positive of it, as positive as that I'm sitting here talking to you." "I think you're wrong, Van Every," I said. "Somebody wanted to .murder Margalo. She would have been murdered anyway, regardless of the fact that she wore the ruby." "You can go on thinking that, but I can't. I'm not going to have the ruby around, not going to let Joyce wear it as she wants to, to prove that my theory is false " "She wants to wear it!" I exclaimed. .

I had agents out all over the world looking for gems of interest My hobby, as you know. They were from some Franciscan convent in Quebec. When one of them pulled the stone out from under her robe, I gasped. I realized the beauty of it, and of course I knew of it. and had tried to locate it. Here it was in my library. You can imagine how excited I was! They said, at least one of them talked to me, the other nodding confirmation constantly, that they had found the stone among the belongings of a dead sister at the convent. They thought it must be valuable, sc had consulted a jeweler in Quebec. He knew nothing about the stone, but that it was a ruby of fabulous price. He suggested they consult a New York jewel - merchant, who happens to be a good friend of mine. Instead of writing they came, and the man referred them to me. That's what they told me. "I took it in. and offered them a certain sum for the stone, the price does not matter, and they wanted a night to think it over. They were going to give the money to the convent. So they left, taking the ruby with them, and I never saw them two sisters. We did not talk much, and they made no explanation this time about where they had got the riiby I asked none. It was enough that I had the stone. When Soon came with the money, large denomination notes, which secretly I asked him to get the numbers on, they asked me to call a taxi for them and left." The story was an amazing one If anyone other than Van Every had told me such a tale, I would have laughed.. I could not help believing him. He told what he had to say so earnestly, mystified himself ovei the two sisters. "What were the denominations of the bills Soon got at the bank?" "There were 70 $1,000 Mils--and I have the number of each of them," he reached into his pocket, and pulled out a small black leather note book. Opening it near the end, he handed it to me. I saw a long list of numbers, large ones. "The bills were pan of those I always keep in my safety deposit box at the Union bank." "Soon has access to it?" "Soon and I only. I would trust him with everything." "Van Every, this may be more important than you think--in view of the murder of Miss Younger. Did you happen to say anything to Keyes about the--the transaction?" "No, you're the only other person who knows except Soon and me. When I told Soon to get the numbers of the notes, I did it for protection. For myself. For all I know the Camden ruby may have been stolen, and I wanted some assurance, that after I had paid for it, it would be mine. You understand that many of the gems I buy are smuggled over here--I have many rare old stones--I know some of them were stolen, but I say nothing about where they came from. In fact most of my collection is in my boxes at the bank. Few people know what I have. I have strange people coming up to sell me jewels, stranger than vou can imagine, but the two sisters were the strangest I have ever entertained; Whether I pay by check or by cash, I keep a record, so when the notes are cashed, or the checks I know to whom the money went. Checks are much easier to keep track of than notes, that's why I prefer to give checks. However, I can do nothing when my--clients de mand cash. I do not quarrel with them."
