JP--Meager \ fresh receipts of · hogs', estimated at 15,000, including 4,000 billed di- feot to packers, did not prevent sellers from. attempting a raid on prices. Lack of an energetic demand WB.S at.the bottom of the demands for reduced prices.

While this waa constructive to a certain extent, It waa not regarded as sufficient cause for the firm tone to prevail In our market and the strength therefore was attributed to talkto Insect damage, present and prospective..This Idea was uppermost at Liverpool.: where .BroomhaU: re'ported r shorts covering un rumors ot the damage Increasing as a result of the-unseasonably hlEh temperatures In parts of the American grain belt where the winter wheat crop Js getting nicely started. Reports of cut worm.'infestation with damage .to a thousand or more acres came today from Hemlngford, Nebr. TWs is Dot to be tnKea too seriously except Insofar as it enlarges the extent of terrl-' tory from which reports of such nature have already been received. This damage Is In Boi Butte county In the northwest part of the'state, where there is only a small wheat acreage. Cut worms as a rule do not spread entirely over large areas, according to Mr. Cromwell. .The northwest, alter the driest winter on record, is needing moisture for spring work altho some' sections of that part of the grain bell, still have a snow covering. Minneapolis was strong today and the situation there helped our market. Our advance was likely held back somewhat by the weakness in corn. While we expect no drastic decline, It looks na tho a, new Incentive is necessary to advance prices. _COBN--Corn failed to hold a very good advance which resulted from the strength in wheat, ana succumbed to pressure late in the session. September was the weakest and was solu at Intervals all day. The forecast for unfavorable weather over most of the belt had no effect, altho It will.delay planting. The movement to market continues small. Opening of navigation is expected to result In liberal shipments out of here In the Immediate future. About 50,000 bushels of corn was-booked to arrive, ahout 4s.ooo of It being from other terminals. Bales however were only 32,000.

On the whole, the midweek business statistics seemed to be less gloomy than the bearishly inclined had expected. A moderate recovery in Brazilian bondgwas an cncoura"- ing development in that quarter. Trading in stocks was in light volume, however. 'Such prominent- issues as U S Steel, Bethlehem Steel, American Can, American .Telephone, Electric Power and Light, Public Service of N. J., North American, and American Smelting, moved up about 2 points. The last named was -influenced by ordering of the regular dividend. Such issues as Allied Chemical, Johns Manvillc, Eastman Worthington, and Case pushed up about 3 to 4 points, and Auburn again fluctuated erratically, getting- up more than 20 points to a new peak price since 1929. Pox Film was heavy for a time in the morning-, selling off more than 4 points before recovering. Union Pacific dropped about 3 to a new low for the year, as did Texas Gulf Sulphur. \ . · The weekly steel trade reviews reported the expected slowing up of Ingot output, iron aga placing production at 53 per cent of capacity against 57 a fortnight ago'. The weekly report of freight cai loadings show the small decline o 1,863 cars from the previous week The weekly petroleum statistics was gratifying, showing substantia reduction in both crude output am in gasoline stocks in storage.

He reached ove and covered her hand that lay o the seat between them. Sweet of him to say that. Bu Mary knew why her eyes shone didn't she? And wondered if he eve would know. Self-consciously, sh said, "Oh, I'm not pretty. Bonni has all the looks in our family,- Wai until you see Bonnie's eyes. The not only shine like stars, but tne : twinkle, and are as blue as the sk- around them." Mary, never had go over the habit of praising her littl sister. Even when they were littl tots, she had always boasted abflu her pretty little sister and delighte. fa showing her off, or claiming he for a sister. Something of refleote* glory, perhaps. "Is^onnie your kid sister?" Dicli asked, absently, looking down th river. Tea. 'You will like her, too." "Perhaps so, but I already like you better," he grinned and gave her hand a quick-pressure. Mary laughed softly. The pulse of the ferry motors vibrated thru the sailing stillness of the river traffic. Shadow boats and phantom barges, outlined only by their red and white and green lights swept beside them, past them, before^--all about them, in and out of the foggy shadows. Deep, throaty horns blurted abrupt signals of warning. Bells clanged. Mary liked the ferry crossing, particularly at night, always thrilled to the romance of jt. On the river's broad, strong, heaving bosom rested tl-e commerce of the world! In the crook of her arms on either side It held big business--turbulent, tem- permental, overgrown children, whose opposite natures she was constantly striving to unite and reconcile. And deep within, under that broad, tranquil surface, still other forces held sway--in the arteries of transportation. Mary's own pulses throbbed heavily, rapidly, anticipating 'Dick's next words. But just then the curved end of the ferry slid into the corresponding curve at the Jersey City wharf, iron chains clanked, Dick started the motor and they rolled 'off into the highway. No time to lose, if tney got back to New York early enough to dance any that night. , The conversation during the drive was about . most everything but ·"shoes and ships and sealing wax," and then they were hurrying into the house. This was the first time Mary ever had taken Dick in, for he had not stayed on the two other "-occasions when he brot her home-late. As they went up the. steps, Mary hoped fervently that the twins were in, bed, that Morn looked her best and the living room was in some semblance of order, as it would not be if the boys were about. . Opening the front : door, she almost collided with Bonnie, just leav- ·ing with a fellow whom Mary bad never seen before. Greetings and introductions followed. Mother, It- developed, had taken the twins to a movie, fortunately for Mary, on this night when she was in such a hurry to leave · again. · Bonnie's round eyes dilated when she saw Dick, as Mary knew they would. Which-gave Mary a little Umll of pride, for it was usually Bonnie who brot home the" classy ' dates. And then--Mary reeled sick- emngly aa what her eyes discovered. There was Bonnie, resplendent in her own new red chiffon evening dress and slippers, and 'even her black velvet wrap that had been chosen conservatively to wear with most anything. Bonnie looked stunning, all right. But the vision swam dizzily before Mary's eyes. , Finally, she managed, "Bonnie, will you come upstairs with me? I want to'see you a minute." What calamity! 'Even if she did change now, the boys would know she had taken the very clothes off Bonnie's back. But that wasn't the big,thing tp Mary now. She had to look well for Dick at tbe club. Oh! how could Bonnie just take her new dress without even asking her? Upstairs, having closed the door gently, she whispered with entreaty, "Oh, Bonnie, please give me my dress. Dick is taking me to the University club dance. I'm sorry but really--'· · "Well, such nerve," Bonnie retorted.. "What do you think I am to keep my date waiting while I dress again? Who do you suppose he is-none other than the junior Horace P. Moffatt, the silk Moffats, my deaJi! And I haven't a decent rag to my name. You surely don't mind if I wear it just this once." "Well, I do mind, Bonnie. You lon't know--how important--please, Bonnie, you can have anything else of jmine, but tonight, and because it s now, I want that dress--" while he pleaded witn Bonnie, Mary was getting but of her crepe dress and ticking off her oxfords with rierv- us haste. "Oh, your old beige lace will do," Bonnie Insisted, "and you may have my-blue wrap--it would clash too horribly with this red. There's a ear. I can't keep the honorable Horace waiting another minute--" tnd before Mary could open her lips o protest further,-'she had gone, caving only the fragrance of Mary's eat perfume behind her.

Mr. McPeak had with him a sizable-container of the frigid fluid" and In connection with his talk he performed a number of Interesting- experiments. The almost instantaneous freezing of th» petals of a rose the crystallization of rubber and a ' wiener and the solidifying of a small brick of mercury thru the medium of freezing were included in the experiments. Primitive methods of producing arid using oxygen in a semi-pure condition in his early days in the ' welding business were described by the speaker. In contrast with this are the methods employed at -present, as exemplified by.his demonstrations: - Music for the program was given by the girls' glee club from Monroe ichool, under the direction of Mary Ellen Lydon.
