TWENTY MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MAY 4 0 1936 HOG MARKET 5 TO 10 CENTS LOWER EASES OFF AFTER OPENING STEADY Top Sales at Chicago Down 5 Cents to $10.55 on Weak Demand. CHICAGO, UP)--The hog market opened steady Monday but after packers had filled requirements the demand began to ease and prices ruled 5 to 10 cents lower Top -sales were off 5 cents to $10.5j. Lighter receipts and anticipation of broader consumer demand for fresh pork were relied upon to stimulate trade but effect of these factors failed to materialize. Hog drove cost in April averaged $10.17 Last week's cost, however, dropped 41 cents to 510.15, lowest in seven weeks. . , . . Another liberal supply of fat steers was crowded into the cattle pens. Demand, specially from shippers, was very narrow and as a result trade was slow. In the ear y hours of the market practically nothing was done. The early top was only $9, but several loads were held 50 to 75 sents above that figure Cows were fully steady. '\Last week's average cost of slaughter steers declined to ?8.2o. Sheep were mostly steady Mon- dav the early bulk of wooled lambs going for 511-75 to 512 while good to choice native springers were held above 512. A few clipped lambs brought 510.

NEW YORK, /P -- Farm implement, rubber and scattered specialty issues provided the little buying support that appeared in Monday's stock market.

Gainers of fractions to a point or more near the start of the final hour included U. S. Rubber Common and Preferred, Goodrich, Goodyear, J. I. Case, International Harvester, Deere, North American and Delaware and Hudson. Down as much were U. S. Steel, Bethlehem, General Motors. Chrysler, Western Union, Anaconda, .American Smelting, Consolidated. Edison, N. Y. Central and Pennsylvania. The late tone was irregular. Transfers approximated 1,150,000 shares. Curb Market NEW YORK, (/P) -- Oils and specialties stumped fractions to 4. points or so In the curb market Monday. Included among the losers were Aluminum company of America, Creole Petroleum, Gulf Oil oC Pennsylvania, international Petroleum, Snerwin-Wllliams, Sunray Oil and Masonfte. A n a n d f u l oC issues resisted the decline and went up fractions to around 3 point*. These included Consolidated Mining and Smelting, American Superpower.

Up to shortly before noon only one French bond had trad'ed, the 7'.4 P« cent loan of 1941, which was o f f a slight fraction. The U, S. government list which for some time has been reported as. under the i n f l u - ence of the oncoming French elections likewise was quiet with the few issues transacted CHAfTKK 34. Laura Randall's diary continued: "October 16. Miss Joyce is more set than ever on finding a job. She left at 9 this morning, and I have been alone all day. She didn't even come home to dinner. The day has passed very slowly. Mr. Van Every has been out most of the time, and Soon is in the library. I tried to talk to him because I was so lonely, but of course a Chinaman can't talk decently. What shall I do if Miss Joyce really finds a job ? "Later. There have been strange happenings in the house. Murder. I don't know what to think of it. Miss Joyce knows something of it, I',m sure. She came upstairs tonight, before we knew about anything and started to cry. I tried to comfort her, but she sent me to bed. "It is very hard to write this, but I must. The police are downstairs; they have questioned everyone. Miss Joyce and me, too. I was afraid to tell them Miss Joyce had been at the library door with Allan Foster for a few minutes. It was after she came upstairs that she began to cry, and sent me to bed. "I aaw them come in, Mr. Van Every, -Miss Younger--I know it was Miss Younger because I admire her work on the stage very much, and have seen her often--and another man. A man I have never seen before. Mr. Van Every was telling them of the ruby, showing it to them, it turned out later, but even from the stairs of the third floor I could hear what he was saying. More horrible, this ruby is, than I thought. I was shivering as I sat there listening. I thought I would slip downstairs and see the ruby. It would do no harm, but just as I was starting I heard a creak in the stairs, so hurried hack to Miss Joyce's bedroom. I stayed there, perhaps five minutes, then came out, but no one was there. The hall was clear. I settled down at the top of the steps on the third floor and listened. I could hear Mr. Van Every's voice, and catch snatches of what he was saying. I must have made a mistake about the creak on the stairs, yet I know I heard it. My ears are very sensitive. "Miss Joyce and Allan came up the stairs later. I could not believe it when I saw Miss Joyce coming up with him at that hour. After all I little lower.

Allan was still at the door of the library when 1 went into Miss Joyce's bedroom. Then it was ehe started to cry and sent me to bed. I went to my room, worried sick. 1 could not scold her when she was crying, yet she needed to be scolded. I'm positive I heard her open the door of the Bedroom, and go out again into the hall. She did it quietly, but I heard it all the same. I'm sure. One is sure of things sometimes." From here Miss- Randall's diary took up the questioning that followed, full descriptions of Captain Keyes and myself, the annoyances caused by detectives. The next day, she detailed her trip to Keyes' office. An interesting item came the evening of the seventeenth. "Soon knows more of this than Captain Keyes thinks. I tried to tell him this afternoon. How Mr. Van Every can trust this Chinaman is more than I can see. It easily might have been Soon I heard on the stairs, although I admit that he is very quiet, always walking around as if he had double padding on his feet. Yet it might easily have been Soon. 1 -' The morning of the eighteenth-it was the evening of the eighteenth when Keyes and I read the diary, the day of Miss Randall's murder, there was only one entry. "I have found the hiding place of the ruby and this afternoon will prove to myself whether or not the stone is what they say, a murder stone." Then it ended, the remainder ol the book was clean. Miss Randal" had had no further opportunity to write in her diary. Her 42 volumes were complete, one a little shorter than the others, as it was no 'Margalo had smoked that brand for years. I remember years ago when I had bought them for her-gifts I had sent her since, cartons of :hese cigarets. The morning we had breakfasted together, the last in her life, she had smoked an expensive brand. Her apartment was stocked with them." 'Yet you said she and Van Every had not met before." "I'm positive they had not met before. And I'm' sure the cigarets I _iw at Mra. Bryce's were costly. -I particularly remember, because I thought of Margalo when I saw Mra. Bryce smoking one." "Miss Randall noticed the nuns, too. None of the bills, Maughan, have come through the banks as yet. That's funny, in the days that have passed. Whoever sold the ruby to Van Every didn't much want the money." Keyes was reflective, and seemed baffled. "Van Every should know about this diary. Perhaps he can enlighten us on some of the points. He ought at least to tell us about; the two mysterious visitors he had during the week, the tall man with whitish hair, and the woman who smokes expensive cigarets." "The woman we think is Mrs. Bryce." So together we went downstairs, finding Van Every had left the house an hour or so before. Soon told us that his master had gone out to take care of the affairs of Miss Randall. Thoughtful of him, both Keyes and I agreed. Someone had to manage the details, and Van Every was the logical one to do it. I was about to censure Joyce for going out dancing the night of her companion's death, when she came into the library with Allan Foster. He was dressed in tuxedo, but she had on a simple dark dress. Her eyes were red with weeping. So after all she had not gone. Keyes sent them both away, and soon we saw Joyce go up to her room alone, dragging up the stairs as if she were very tired. "Now, Soon, if you'll show me where the ruby was hidden. I understand it was in your room," Keyes asked. Soon led us down the basement floor, through the kitchen, and then to the front of the house. Facing the ttle grilled entryway was his room, mall and as Miss Randall had said, riental in appearance. There were w pieces of furniture in the room, low single bed, a carved teakwood _jair, and a table on which rested he three idols Miss Randall had aentioned. The incense burner was rdinary, cheap, but the other two ieces caught my eye at once. They vere of fine workmanship, one arved of jade, beautifully done, the -bite of the jade like faded yellow ^tin. It was small, and certainly ifire was no place in it to hide a uby. In fact it was hardly larger ban the ruby itself. The other was iron, an old piece, erhaps two feet high, a big-bellied od with tiny feet, and a great pen- ulous chin. Soon lifted up this iece and handed it to Keyes. Keyes xcla'imed that it was very heavy, ndeed the light way the Chinaman landed it to him confounded the de- ective. Turning it, Keyes and I saw an opening underneath. Soon said it was here that he had put the ruby. The cavity would easily hold the ·uby but not the box. I pointed out he fact to Soon, who said -that his master had taken it from the box. 'Good place to hide," the Chinaman went on. "No one would know. 1 pot it there mysel'.
