his estimate of a week ago of 37,0110,000
bushels of corn for the State. On light
soils, where firing occurred, corn will not
till out well: but elsewhere the rain will
renew development of an unusually good
stand. Last year's crop was 432,000,00n.

For those who wero able to read thn slain

yesterday. Them is no other sloc k 011 the
list which Is mole henrlbreamng lo tho.ii
I who urn short of It than Steel common.
And yet Steel common attracts short rell-
Ing Irresistibly. I'or that matter It tempts
speculators lor inn advance in the samo
way. The movemenls In Steel aro un
'llie those In any other slock. They havn
a directness entirely their own. Steel
common when It decline, declines as
though It would never stop and when It
rises Its upward trend Is usually nearly
Is-rpenillciilnr. Apparently It Is only n
nnestlon of guessing a turn, getting In on a
niovo and riding" with It. The recovery
In the stock from 47'. to the high level of
last week was particularly deadly to people
who chanred to be on the wrong sldo and
fought the advance. On tho check to this
advance In Sleel and to the rising tendency
of the market generally guessing (ho turn
in Steel again became the principal occu
pation In speculative iliar(ers. Some 1111-

Recent eltlna; at Mteet.
All abrupt rlc of two points in Steel
In less than hair an hour might bn regarded
as a well nigh Impossible occurrence In a
stock of which there Is ordinarily such
hii enormous floating supply in the Street.
Hut circumstances mtfht be Imagined
which would provide a clear enough expla
nation. It Is at least coneelvablethat a big
short Interest hud been created In the stock
utter the twelve point rally from the June
bottom. Over 275.000 shares of the stock
changed hands last week above so. On
Thursday, and 1'rlcUy the prion touched
'-'". unci on both of the-e occasions slock
seemed lo be offered abundantly. This
was the llisl occasion lor several weeks
since Ihe .lime break Unit the scarcity of
the stock was not notable. These oflcrings
might huve represented profit taking sales.
B mi they were well absorbed. They might
also have represented renevred sales for
the decline. If so they did not Induce
renewed liquidation, l or Steel yesterday
was Arm and dull until around 2:30 P. M.
for the third lime the price crept up to
K'i. After that the flrenorks started.
To the ordinary observer there were
only two explanations of the extraordinary
market which prevailed in steel common
In the last twenty minutes. One was (lint
some big operator had taken It into his
head to accumulate ii "lino" of Steel coin
inon. The opemtlon In a narrow market
like the present would probably have
caused Jut such a stirring up. Hip it did
not seem reasonable that any one should
choose the time or the manner to take a
bullish polton In the stock. 'Ihe second
explanation was that I ho frenicil rise was
caused by the execution of a stop oi
order In seveial thousand shares of short
stock at 52 ., which fired the mine und
started a succession or orders of the same
kind. People who came to the conclusion
that the development liidic.iied a big
roundup in Ihe shorts professed not a llttlo
Interest In to-day's micluatloiis in lin
stock, n elimination of an important
part of the short interest might be ex
pected lo produce an airhole" of some
British Investor-. Wary.
