CHICAGO, (JP) -- Receipts of livestock \yere cut far below advance estimates Monday in all departments of the trade but prices of hogs displayed the only immediate reaction to curtailed supplies. . Swine rose. 10 to 15 cents to a $10.50 peak, highest in more tln two months. Although the run was 07 per cent off what had been expected, this was not the only stimulating factor in the trade: Much emphasis was placed on a sudden jump of Vz cent a pound in wholesale pork loin prices on top o£ last week's more pronounced upturn. . ' . - . · . · Traders said advancing loin values to the 'highest level since last October indicated demand was good despite.the fact that-Lenten abstinence still exists.: However, some buying in the wholesale market was attributed to the fact that dealeis may be anticipating requirements at: the close b£ Lent. : The - trade in cattle and sheep was slow and prices in these departments displayed little strength. Best'.steers" were : held above the two year peak ot.S15.50, however, while the undertone; on good ,to near choice cattle for eastern ship- merit was weak. Most early sales ranged from $9.25 to $12. Bee£ car- ,cass wholesale .values were unchanged to. *,!· cent a pound lower, the range being 11% to 19M: cents. Early indications were that lamb sales would he made on an unchanged to shade higher basis. Loco!

CHAPTER 3 The man who entered the solic- :or's office flung his hat unceremoniously on Stuckey's desk and anlc heavily, without invitation, nto the only chair which offered ny degree of comfort. He glanced round -at Bells and jerked liis ead faintly but authoritatively in he direction of the door. The cleric urned on his heel and vanished nto the outer office. Charles Stuckey looked supreme- y uncomfortable, as he always did n the presence of this paunchy, verfed man with the florid eoun- enance and the faintly mocking expression in the dark-brown eyes, vhich were a trifle too small and et a shade too closely together. For some moments no word was pokcn: the two men sat regarding ach other. A , m a n "in the early iUies, Colonel Alec Lutman had nee been a handsome And impos- ng figure. Those who knew him est and disliked him most said rial Lutman's name could not be ound in the Army List and that he prefix "Colonel" had, indeed, o more justification, when applied o Lutman, than the fact that wo- nen succumb more readily to a itle, particularly a military title. At last.the solicitor, with an ob- /ious effort as of a man slinking imself free from some dominating nfluence, broke the silence. "What have you come for, Lutman?" The smile on the other's face videned. "My dear Charles!" he protest- d. "Scarcely the way to greet an ild--er--friend! I do hope -you don't employ the same effusive manner toward ali your--er-- Clients." The solicitor scowled. "I'm sorry," he said, "but I'm in no mood this morning for badinage. Did you want to see me about anything in particular? Because, if not, I have several appointments." Colonel Lutman regarded him vith an air of appreciative benevo- ence. "The one thing I admire most about you, Charles, is your stern ense of duty. It is that which makes rising young lawyers--er-- ise," he finished rather lamely. Stuckey made an impatient ges- ure and looked at his wrist watch. "I. hope," went on his visitor, 'that you have not, under pres- Produee MASON CITY-- For Monday Cash Quotations by E. G.

Lamson Brothers Market Letter MAIIKET REVIEW Wheat--Statements by the Argentine grain board in line with the rumors the latter part of last week, with f u r t h e r comments that the board intends lo keep a daily check on shipments and will organize methods to be proposed in Liverpool with a sharp r u n u p in their prices and in consequence our market and Winnipeg opened at new seasonal high levels. At one lime wheat prices here were about 3c higher than Saturday's close. Winnipeg gained on Chicago, but after holding steady for a time realizing sales in considerable volume came Into the market and a good reaction ensued, the greater portion of the early advance of tile day being lost. Fair weather conditions were present over Sunday in the southwest but forecast for rain ant 1 unsettled probably in Kansas and Nc hraska for next 24 hours. The May-July wheat difference Monday narrowed to around 13','ac indicating that most of the new buying in Monday's market came into the deferred futures. We believe thai it is well to accept profits on long whcal during such strong periods as occurrcc 1 Monday and that too many eleventh hnui buyers are in the market lo make for ; sound position. Corn--Prices were sharply higher thar wheat Monday with a larger commissior house trade but toward the closc v rcac lions occurred. Milling Interests bough the white com while industries bough the yello\v com. Coastal markets re ceived about 1,300,000 bushels Argentine corn last week, the grain bctng mostly wanted by manufacturers and wet processing Industries. MINNEAPOLIS FLOUR.

Even promising young solicitors . . ." "Oh, for Heaven's sake, Lutman, come to the point." The Colonel sighed and dropped his bantering tone. "All right, I wil!," he said. "Jim Asson comes out of Dartmoor this morning and is by now"--he glanced up at the clock on the dusty mantelpiece--"well on - his way to London and to this office." Stuckey gave a violent start. "Jim? Out! But I thought . , ." "Quite. You thought he wasn't due for another six months. But Jim has been a very blue-eyed boy and has earned a special remission for something or other. He should be here in about an hour." The solicitor's features registered his distaste. "But what's he coming here for? I don't want to see him." "Perhaps not." The Colonel's manner reverted to the grandiose. "But I deemed it advisable that the--er--reunion should take place here, under the aegis, as it were, o£ our legal representative. You see," he went on to explain, "when I heard from Jimmy the glad tidings of his early release, I gathered from his tone that he was feeling somewhat--er--sore with me concerning his incarceration." "You mean he knows you shopped him?" Lutman raised a hand in gesture of protest. " 'Shopped,' Charles? R e a l l y that is hardly a dignified word.'' "Dignity be hanged!" Stuckey interrupted. "I speak the language o£ my clients. And it's not so unfamiliar to you, either." Lutman waved the point aside. "Anyway," he continued, "Jimmy, as I say, is feeling a sense of grievance and is breathing vengeance and slaughter against me. I therefore wrote to him and arranged to meet him here. You see Charles"--again his wordy pose Iropped from him and lie spoke imply and earnestly--"some- hings got to be done about Jimmy." "I've often thought that," grunt- id the other. "He's a lousy--" "Yes, yes, I agree: he's all that ind more. But I mean that we've got to find a way of making it up o him. He's done an eighteen- nonth stretch; the proceeds of the ittle affair which got him the sen- ence are practically all gone f and immy will want considerable-- er--smoothing down.' 1 "What, exactly, do you mean?" "I mean," said the Colonel, 'that we've got to find a way of jresenting Jimmy with some easy money. I'm nearly broke. . . ." The ringing of the telephone bell nterrupted him. Charles lifted the ·eceiver, listened, grunted a few monosyllables and then replaced ':he instrument. "I'll have to slip out for a few minutes," he told Lutman. "Would you rather wait o r - . . , ?" "Or. I'll wait here," was the reply. "Maybe the acute legal atmosphere with which you have permeated your surroundings wit induce a bright idea." Charles grunted. "I'll hot be long," he said, anc passed through the outer office. Left alone,' the caller glanced around the dusty office with distaste. It was poorly, if adequately furnished. A shelf of law books stood affixed by rackets on opposite wall o£ the room; a few black japanned deed-boxes, thx names on which were quite illegible under the thick coating a' dust, occupied the facther come of the floor to his left. His gaze wandered to the large littered desk which occupied the center o the room and by the side of whic! stood the armchair in which h was now sitting. On the blotting pad was a small pile of letters opened and unopened. Lutman reached out a hand and drev these casually toward him. It wa; with him not so much a principh as a habit o£ mind to keep himself as well informed as possibl .on all affairs, his own or anybody else's. The cablegram arrested his attention and he read its contents idly at first, then a second timi with quickened interest. The mes sage, which came from a firm o New York lawyers, informer. Messrs. Stuckey Stuckey, as th legal accredited representatives o Mrs. Millicent Smith and he: daughter Jacqueline, that the lat ter had been bequeathed by he deceased uncle, Mr. Alan Redfern the whole of his residual estate amounting to some $1,500,000. Lutman read and re-read tin cablegram. His mind held no ide; at the moment in what way th facts disclosed could be of anj possible interest to him; but on of his most abiding principles wa that money in the possession o other people was always absorb ing interest to a man of his owr sybaritic needs . He never hear or read stories of the accession o sudden wealth without his ingen iously fertile brain being set t work overtime . on evolvin schemes whereby the transferenc pf that wealth to his own bank ing account could be effected wit the minimum of risk to himself That such schemes rarely .attaine to fruition was no deterrent t Colonel Lutman; he continued t indulge his habit o£ evolvin them. He sat for some minutes concentrated thought the cable gram dangling loosely from hi fingers. When Stuckey re-entere his office some ten minutes late it was to find his visitor sittin bolt upright in his chair, a spark] in his small, acquisitive ears, h whole expression that of a ma who has solved a difficult prob lem.

MARKET NOTES By TICKER TAPE A three sided controversy is raging in Wall street these days as to whether it il boom, a boom let, or just recovery. With three warnings from Washington authorities in as many days, of the dangers of an. excessive price rise, the money ·street experts have been projected into a flurry of figuring and analysing. With the general wholesale price level, as measured by the U. S, bureau of labor statistics Index of 784 items, up 8 per cent ovtr a year ago, and many individual items up 50 per cent or more, there lias been a disposition among the stalfsticians and economists to acknowledge that Secretaries Roper and Wallace, and federal reserve board Chairman Eccles, could scarcely be accused ol crying "wolf." At the snine time, a number included to the belief the current bulge in prices, together with near record production in steel and several oilier lines, was n boom- Ict rather than a boom, nnd would correct itself as it goes along. Some saw- semblcnccs to the sudden f l u r r y in prices and manufacturing in the spring and early summer ol IQn.1, \vhcu fears nt increased material costs from dollar devaluation and higher labor coatn from the impending N.

While nothing us spcciacul.ir as dc- valunlion of the dollar enters into the current picture, they e x p l a i n , raw materials costs have been rising, partly due to foreign buying for armament, and partly as result of expanded domestic demands of recovery, and wage ii;creast" have occurred in many Industries, and are bemfi sought in others.
