FOURTEEN -5 1 "· 1 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 13 · 1937 LIVESTOCK MARTS CALLED STEADY NOMINAL PEAK ON HOGS $10,35 Swine Pi-ices Show 10 to 15 Cent Loss for Week;" Cattle Higher. CHICAGO, (IP)--Livestock markets were nominally steady Saturday in the absence of business in most branches of the trade. The . few hogs brought §10 to $10.25 but the nominal peak was 510.35. Traders had · to look beyond supply figures for an explanation of the irregular movement of livestock prices during the week. Hogs lost 10 to 15 cents, With me- · dium kinds dropping as much as 25 cents in instances while toppy grades were off only 5 cents. At the same time, cattle advanced, considering the plain quality, with .some gains ranging up to 25 cents. Fat: lambs gained 50 to 75 cents, soaring to new nine months peaks arid to the · highest levels for March in eight years. ·Receipts of cattle were slightly larger than the previous week but .the swine arid lamb runs were lower, i . - The week's top .in cattle was $15, a 14 months peak. All grades of cattle except common and medium grade lights showed the full 25 cent advance but on a comparative basis there were few animals available to sell above $13.50. The week's lamb top was made at the close, being $12.65. Local Livestock MASON CITY--For Saturday. IIOGS Five cents higher.

Extreme decline were reduced in some instances ii the final few minutes. Except for a lively opening, anc a moderate pickup near the close dealings were on the quiet side Transfers were around the 1,000,000-share mark. Sprrie Specialties Gain. Notwithstanding the lower drif of the list as' a whole, a number of specialties managed to run counter to the trend for substantial gains. The thought apparently was again present in the minds o: speculative .and investment forces that the administration, concernec over the recent boom in raw materials, might take steps to stem an undue inflationary movement m slocks and staples. Offerings of U.. S. government securities, heaviest since 1020 in yesterday's session, dried up appreciably and support appeared for other bonds. Commodities were uneven. U. S. Sfcel Loser.

Then she got in a taxi and told the driver to break all speed limits getting to her apartment house across town; When she got there, she discovered that Joel had not even been at home. But she had a guest. Mrs. Kintzin'g was in the living room, Janet's maid told her. The last -person in the world that Janet wanted to see that day was Amelia Kintzing. She was a fluttery little thing that Janet had met somewhere at bridge and she had been bothering Janet for weeks to join her committees, to run over for tea." After weeks of telephone calls, she had assumed the air oJ an old friend. ''Guess what?" she said to Janet said cooly that she "I just had to tell you. Oh. darling, may I have a cup of tea? I've simply got to settle down over a cup and talk to you. Janet, I got off the boat--"and went Harriet straight to Reno. So I suppose now she'll marry Russell.

Janet found herself leading the way into her sitting room with her mouth drawn tightly over her teeth. She thought: Janet Paynter, you used to have a good disposition but you haven't any more. You snap and snarl and think jealous, mean things. But, oh what is a girl to do when she has to hear from another woman that that woman has met her husband through still another womari? Mrs Newbold? Well, she must be a new one. Janet couldn't ever remember having heard her name. Sooner or later it would come up. Joel would say casually, "If I'm not on time, don't worry. I'll be along directly. I've got to have some cocktails with Mrs. Newbold," And then Janet would know that this was the new woman. She would go out and buy a new frock and a new hat and come back to her beautiful home and Joel would come in later and she would find that she really didn't care as much as she would hav= once. And something that had onre been tender and sweet and breath-taking would be harder now. You could' drop it and it wouldn't break. You can only keep tender things tender by nurturing them The nutriment of love was more than words. It was a wordless thing that grew up between people when they had learned to keep the world out. rnonucE FUTUHES, ( S a t u r d a y m a r k e t ) CHICAGO, (/P)--Closed: Butter futures- Storage, standards March 33',-lc: November 31 Vac.

It was the world that paid them great sums so that they could live in a big house and fill it with strangers. These strangers owned them. They said "We want you" and they smiled when they said it and you found yourself making dates with women other than your wife because the invitation was casual. If you were Janet, you made dates with other men. All perfectly above board and on-the-level dates with people that your hus- oand might know. You made engagements with them because your husband was at the theater every evening and you were no longer a bride who could while awav her lonely evening hours reading"travel books and dreaming oJ the wonderful things that you would see with your husband. In fact you seldom planned engagements, let alone journeys to fascinating lands with your husband, because if you planned to do something after the theater on Friday night, invariably you found that Friday night was the night your husband promised to Play poker with the boys or you '·~'-=ts for a show and you ipected to go' dancing somewhere later. You couldn't get out of the later date because the man who was your escort wouldn't have a girl. So you can see why you couldn't invite your husband to join you later, don't you? It was all very involved and Janet felt that she couldn't quite get a grasp on it all as she sat listening to Amelia's chatter that March afternoon. She had long given up any hope of getting a grasp on Amelia but heretofore her lack of orientation had been purely conversational. This afternoon it was physical. She had an illusion that Amelia kept receding from her view as though her chair were being pulled back and forth on a track. What she probably needed was sleep, she decided. She had really been working very hard. And playing hard. And being someone that she was not. She said "Really?" and "Of course" and a whole series of inconsequential things and then she realized that Amelia was talking abqut Russell. "My dear, she got off the boat" --Janet hadn't any idea who had funny that Russell never marrieA and now we luiow it was because he was in love with Althea all these years. At least that's what we think, don't you?" Janet said she didn't think anything about it. She was thinking: Russell Is going to marry someone else! Amelia left a few minutes later ' and Janet sat in her dusk filled room holding a cup of cold tea in her hand. She was going to lose Russell. She needed Russell. She had fitted him into a place where she had wanted Joel to be but she didn't know that. Suddenly she felt completely alone and lost. Weak (ears came into her eyes and spilled over to ' her cheeks. She felt their moisture on her cold hands without knowing that she was crying. Katie came in and lit the lamps Still Janet didn't move. "Will you want dinner, Mrs. Paynter?" Janet didn't answer her. "Mr. Paynter is dining at his club," Katie reminded.her. Janet got up. "No," she said vaguely, "I'm going out." She went to her room and put on her coat and hat. She knew that she should put on a warm coat but suddenly she was in a hurry and her suit coat was enough even though she felt cold l She was going to Chester--to Martha Colby. She shivered in her thin coat and sat huddled up in her seat in the accommodation train that made every stop on its slow progress to Connecticut and to Chester There were no taxis waiting at the small station, so she walked the short distance to Martha's house. She had walked that same path many times in years gone by. Snatches of those times came back to her, She remembered the time that she had won an award in the i secretarial school and proudly carried home the certificate rolled up under her arm. She felt her purse ' and half expected to find the roll mere, ^ She thought: Tonight might be the night that I am going to fhe Alpha Omega dance with Ernie Layton. Martha has made me a rose colored, taffeta dress for a birthday present. ' Her legs felt strangely light and her cheeks burned. She wiped away the tears that seemed to be , : falling without reason. She wiped them with the finger of her soft suede gloves. The finger tips felt 1 stiff. . ' At last she saw the familiar, vi friendly lights ,of Martha's .house. __!l She walked up the path she had * tread . hundreds of times. This time she did not see that the tulip j-j' fringe of the* walk was beginning K to break into brave colors. ® She stumbled a little on the worn steps and raised a heavy hand to open the door "Martha!" she said from the door. Then Martha's strong arms were around her and in the distance she heard Martha say, "Why Janet, You 11 help me, won't you? I'm afraid Martha. I'm scared to death." That was all she remembered.
