TWELVE MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 21 1936 CHICAGO HOG TOP DROPS TO $10.90 MARKET SLUMPS 10 T015 CENTS Receives Little Stimulus in Spite of Increase in Pork Prices. CHICAGO, tm-pDespite a sharp upturn in pork prices, the hog market received little stimulus Tuesday Brisk competition with beef, with cattle prices the lowest since the close of 1934, is having a bearish effect on the hog trade, market men said.' Demand for pork and hogs both retail and at the stockyards has adjusted itself to the supply abridgement in effect the past year and as a result the runs, while far below normal, are usually in line with slaughtering requirements. Hogs declined 10 to 15 cents Tuesday and the top fell to $10.90 from the $11 peak which has prevailed the past nine weeks. The run of 15,000 was 3,000 larger than had been expected, and this tended to ease the market. Fresh pork loins are up 52 a hundredweight, whole sale, since last week to a new top o 523.50, highest since last fall. Cattle recovered after Monday': sharp downturn and with a run tha was 33 per cent the size of Monday': supply the market for steers an yearlings turned strong although there was little beef on hand. The early top for weighty steers was $9.75. Cattle are selling $1 to $3 be low a year ago and as far as aver age price is concerned and about $' to $5 below the peak point reached the first of May, 1935. Farmers who paid ?8 to 59 fo: feeder steers last fall now are oper ating on a fat steer market that has ,.: declined sharply since then. At pres · - ent feeder steers ar selling mainly " at ?6.50 to $8, which is only $1 less than medium to good fat steers are Hog Markets 3UIW£SX HOGS Hog prices at midwest markets Tuesday C£UAIt KAMUS--Hogs 150-160 Ib.f. $«.'5 S9.75; 160-170 IDS. $8.75®JO; 170-180 tbs S10@10.25; .180-230 Ibs.

NEW YORK, (m--After comin back moderately in early dealing Tuesday, stock market leaders wer subjected to a late afternoon sellin push that brought losses of 1 to or more points.

Curb Market NEW YORK. t.T--Support appeared in various parts of the curb list Tuesday fol lowing a further sinking spell in the Itrsi 30 minutes ot trading. The rally enabled a sizable proup of utilities. oJJjt and industrial specialties to tain levels fractions to more than a poinl above Monday's closing. Stocks like Pan American Airways. Pitts burgh Plato Glass, Singer Manufacturing, Margay Oil and National Sugar Refining had difficulty in absorbing small offerings and gave up 1 to 4 points.

Bond Market NEW YORK, vVP!-- Recovery tendencies were displayed by corporation bonds in Tuesday's market, but U, S. government securities wers inclined to drift lower. Monday's shakeout in stocks, as well as in the loans division, caused traders and investors to take a closer look at prices, and the sell off was regarded as too severe in some sections. Among gainers of fractions to around point in the early trading were Studebaker 6s, AHis-Chalmers .\ Sl Baltimore and Ohio 4s, St. Paul 5s, Chicago a"d North Western 4-Ks and Postal Telegraph 5s. 4 The federal bond list was quiet, but declines ranged from l-32nd to 4-32nds of a point in this department.

Whet prices therefore opened lower Tuesday morning with some commission house selling principally in the new crop futures. After early declines a rally took place and ran the market up out best prices of the day did not hold as no apsressive buying made itself felt. Wheat v.-ns under less pressure than it appeared. Winnipeg failed to reflect our early weakness and held firm during most of the day. There v/ere good export sales reported, fipures given beinp about 1 ] /i million bushels.

She gave me a drawing account, because she knew '" could trust me, knew I wouldn't take a dollar from her. And," she drew .herself up proudly, "my accounts always balanced to the penny. "Miss Younger wasn't one to spend all her money, like a lot of others in the profession. She lived reasonably, didn't even keep a car in town. Of course she has one at her country place, a modest farmhouse in Vermont. She invested wisely--some of her friends were stockbrokers--but I told you all this early this morning, Captain Keyes. What I want to say was this. [ don't know how much money she had, but she must have had a great deal. Besides the check for 57,000 which she gave to Mr. Gonzales last week,' she also bought stocks to the amount of 510,000, and her bank :old detectives today--" 'I know, Mrs. Peoples." Again Seyes was patient but weary. "Her bank told my men today that last week she drew out in--cash notes, nerself, 58,000, an unusual proceeding for her." Mrs. Peoples brightened. "You're right, very unusual. She always paid by check, and she very seldom carried much cash on her. Sometimes when she didn't have much money, and had forgotten to cash a check, she would borrow from me. Oh, often she's borrowed, $10, $15, 520 from me. I always kept as much as ?50 in my purse to lend her if she needed it. "Now, Mr.--Captain Keyes, I don't know what she drew out the cash for. Last Monday, wasn't it that the bank said she drew out $8,000"! I don't know what she drew it out for, but I suspect." Mrs. Peoples settled back" with a little smile on her pudgy face. "What for, then?" Keyes questioned. "Wait a minute, and you'll see. The detectives, too, found her jewels in the vault in her bedroom. She loved jewels and had some fine ones. The best ones she kept in her safety deposit box. They found these, too, after I had given them the key. Fine jewels she had. A gorgeous pearl necklace, a diamond necklace, worth a fortune, rings, watches, a pair of old emerald bracelets,, and earrings. Many more. I know them all. I've seen and handled them all. Miss Younger sometimes was rather careless with them. When she took them off at night, she would leave them lying around on her dressing table. When I found them ,in the morning, I would almost have heart failure. I always tried to be up when she carne home--that is, when she was wearing any of her jewelry. It would be so easy for a thief to steal --with Miss Younger so careless. "As I said, I knew every piece she had. Every piece. When she bought something she showed it to me--for me to admire. That's why T can't understand how I didn't know----" "Didn't know what?" Keyes was fidgeting in his chair.' However, I was intensely interested in what Mrs. Peoples was saying. The woman, I was sure, bad something important to tell us. "After the detectives, Ncff, t think was the one who did most of the talking asked me what Miss Younger could have drawn 58,000 in cash from the bank for, I said J didn't know. I didn't. But I started to rack my brains. Not clothes, because she had accounts, and if she didn't she wrote checks. Probably to help someone. No she would pay that by check too. She had paid Gonzales by check--and I'm sure she was just helping him. Lending him money for something or other. Jewels? Perhaps. .The more I got to thinking about the jewels, the more certain I was she bad drawn out the cash for jewelry. But she hadn't showed anything to me, lately. She hadn't bought any jewelry for months. The last thing she purchased was a pearl ring, a lovely thing. "I figured that if Miss Younger had bought anything, it would cither be at the apartment, or in her safety deposit vault. She never kept anything of value at the farmhouse It was too isolated. The vault was out of the question. The detectives had found everything there. They had searched the house. Now before Miss Younger had the safe put into the apartment, the small floor safe in the closet, I hid some rings for her until I could take them down to the bank next day. And I hid them in the lining of a hat, one of my hats. I figured that would be an unlikely place for thieves to look if they came while we were gone. I suppose she remembered this when she was looking for some place to hide--this thing she had bought. Evidently she didn't want anyone to know about it, not even we. She would have told me, if she had wanted me to know. "I decided to go through her closets, so after the detectives were in the living room, I did, on a pretext of straightening up. But really I went through everything, her hats, under the linings of each, the pockets of her coats--even her slippers, in her slipper trunk. And I found something tucked in the toe of one of her galoshes, a pair she bad worn in a play only once, and which she had kept as part of her stage wardrobe. These garments are in a. different closet than her regular wearing apparel." Mrs. Peoples opened her capacious purse.and drew out a tissue-wrapped package. "It's--a ruby, big as an egg!" Keyes snatched the package and unwrapped it. Indeed, Mrs. Peoples had spoken the truth. It was a ruby, large as an egg, but it was the exact duplicate of Dow Van Every's Camden ruby! Even to the tarnished chain, -to the hole pierced in it, it was the same. I gasped, and took the thing from Keyes. "Your detectives missed it, when they searched, Captain Keyes," Mrs. Peoples spoke a little boastfully. Keyes was annoyed, and showed it. "And you knew nothing about this?" "I told you that I knew nothing. Miss Younger didn't tell me of it. I only guessed she must have bought something with the $S,000 in cash, and I found .what it was." "But you don't know for sure that this is what she bought?" "No--o, but I think it is." "We have to know now, Mrs. Peoples." "Sounds reasonable, Keyes," I put n. "Van Every had to pay cash for lis ruby, too. He bought his last Monday, the same day Miss Younger .drew out .$8,000 in notes." I was 'ingering- the ruby care-fully. Not being anything of a jewel expert, I could not tell whether the rubv was genuine. "We'll have to take this to Van Every. He can examine it for us, and tell whether it's a fake or not." "Yes, but first, Mrs. Peoples, who isited Miss Younger a week ago Monday?" "I thought of that, too, sir, and I brought.' her engagement book." Again the purse was opened, and she jroduced a small, gold-covered lea- ler book, which she handed to Keyes. He glanced over it, found the date, and muttered to himself for a while. With the ruby in my hand, " peered over his shoulder. Mrs. Peoples explained quickly :hat one entry was the hairdresser, another a manicurist, another a masseuse. "She always had these things done on Mondays. They were regular. These notes are in my handwriting." "Breakfast with M. G., 12." Manuel Gonzales. Again Mrs. Peoples came to the front with aid. "R. B. supper. 5." Roy Barrimore. That was all. "Did anyone else call?" "Oh, there were calls, many of :hem, but none of them important, jecause if they had been I would lave remembered and told Miss Younger. She left for breakfast at about 12, to meet Mr. Gonzales. At east I assume she met him. She didn't say that she did. Then all af- .ernoon she was engaged at the eauty shop, Dorothy Reed's, on Fifth avenue. She came home about 5, as I remember, and Mr. Barri- more was waiting for her. She changed and I made a light supper for them, at the apartment. At 7:30 she left for the theater with me, as she always did. No one visited her here that would be suspicious: Her manager, some reporters; that's all. She refused to go out with Mr. Bar- rimore after the theater--I heard her refusing him when I served supper. When we got home at 11:30, she said she was tired and, after she undressed, she went right to bed. That was Monday week." "Very good, Mrs. Peoples."
