Business was brisk during the early hours of trading, .prices being firm lor fancy fruits. MV'IM Dealers who handle potatoes are hustling to sell at present prices, as they look for a decline within a few daya.

At the call session of the exchange there was close bidding on local and northern eggs, but no sales. Ileceipts ot locals were 126 cases. '• i Butter 1b said to be firmer. Receipts were 16,495 poudns. All kinds of fish were in sufficient sup ply to meet the demand. The grape growers of the San Joaquln valley, alarmed at the outlook for the harvest season, have appointed commit tees to canvass all available fields for labor. There are 350,000 tons of grapes to be gathered, and by piece work at tha wages offered, good workmen can earn from $2.25 to $3.50 per day. The best crops along the coast line in the southern part of the state are extraordinarily heavy this year, and the labor is most inadequate.

BRIDGEPORT, Conn., Sept. 6.— Four honey bees held up trolley car No. 66 on the down trip from Shelton to Bridgeport and tied up the Connecti cut Street Railway &. Lighting com pany for fifteen minutes. One combat ive bee drove all six passengers from the car and Into the bushe9 on the road side, where they awaited developments. The car reached signal light No. 8, a mile and a half north of the Stratford railway station, on time. Motorman Will Owens stopped the car; the con ductor, Peter Osterwies, Jumped off to regulate the light so that the car fol lowing could pass a signal box two miles back. As Osterwies approached the box a bee Issued from a hole In it which had been bored to admit a wire not yet put- in. The bee made a straight line for Osterwies' head and while he was striking at It and retreating another bee came out of the box, flanked Osterwies and Jabbed a good elxed drop of poison behind the conductor's ear. "Ouch!" yelled Osterwles, retreating behind the car. "I'm late now," growled a passenger to Osterwies, "You're a brave man, you are, afraid of a bee." At the Bneer a bee looking for fight entered the car and the passengers nearly fell over each other getting out. "Hey, Pete, throw over that signal!" yelled Motorman Owens, pounding his bell to bring the passengers back. "Not on your life!" retorted Peter. "I've taken chances with a mad bull, but no bees for mine." Finally Owens cautiously approached the signal. Perhaps it was his sulphur ous oaths, perhaps the blows from' his raincoat, that drove away the bees. They,vanlshed, the brave passengers returned, the signal was made, and traffic was resumed. The nights along the Housatonle river have been exceptionally cold lately. The bees were attracted by the warmth of the electric lights in the signal box probably. FUEL TO REPLACE COAL Daniel Drawbaugh, Known as Discov- erer of Telephone, Announce* New Preparation Special to The Herald. CARLISLE, Pa.. Sept. 6.— The aged Daniel Drawbaugh, whose litigations In the federal courts many years ago against Alexander Bell made him known as the prior Inventor of the telephone, notwithstanding Bell's gain- Ing the patent suits on technicalities, and who has been turning out many in ventions at Eberly's Mills In rapid succession for the last twenty-five years, has announced that wlth» the aid of Dr. B. 19. Gamble he has dis covered fuel to take the place of coal. This new fuel Is being manufactured now at Bowmanadale, east of Carlisle, under a secret process. It Is composed of chemicals and a fibrous matter and •weighs only half as much as coal. The new fuel will tm made In different slied moulds. Tests mads yesterday •with the new fuel show that It does not clinker, burns to a fine ash, emits little gas and burns freely, gives off more heat than coal and lasts longer. This artificial fuel will probably cost about one-half as much as coal. The genius of Drawbaugh, who Is now al most an octogenarian, has produced hundreds of Inventions, which range all the way from the collapsible lunch box, electric bells and the first nail inaklnir machine to the higher grade or electrical grain weighing devices, the pneumatic, tool, original telephone and Interchangeable apparatus. There aro hundreds of persons In this locality who talked over Drawbaugh's wireless telephone almost twenty years ago. It would require secveral newspaper columns to \merely enumerate Draw baugh's various inventions, but with all these the wizard has amassed but a moderate fortune. He has never been known to err materially In his Judgment concerning electrical or mechanical matters and one of his principal delights Is In mystifying col lege professors with unique results he obtains In his researches. MAGNET AS CRANE HOIST Handling of Iron and Steel Facilitated by an Electrical Device In Cleveland Special to The Herald. CLEVELAND, Sept. 6.-A novel ap plication of electricity In the handling of Iron and steel is now In operation here In the way of a magnet. , ' This magnet consists of a large Iron disk supported by chains which may be fastened to the hoop of a derrick or crane block. To the top of the disk Is applied an electric plug device, con nected with Insulated wires, which, by an Ingenious auxiliary pulley arrange ment, are led to a controller at some convenient point at the base of the derrick, or in the operator's cab of the crane. The disk Is lowered over the material to be lifted and the current turned on, and In this way enormous loads of material may be gathered to gether and held by the magnet as long as the current remains connected. Different forms of the disk are made for handling pig Iron, heavy melting stock, such as crop ends, butts, steel risers, small castings, tin acrap, whether loose or In bales; shearing scrap, rod scrap, bolts, nuts, punches, rivet spikes, nail ends, machine bor ings, flats, sheets and, in fact, almost any form of iron or steel which affords a surface sufficiently large for the magnet to act upon. When the material has been carried to the place where it Is to be deposited the current Is turned off and the mag net at once releases the load. Scrap tin has always been an ugly form of material to handle satisfactorily, but by the use of this devlro It may be disposed of as rapidly and as easily as heavier stock. TWINS TOO SLOW; TRIPLETS Special to The Herald. CLEVELAND, Sept. 6.-For the fifth consecutive time the ttork left twins at the home of David (loldman and his wife, Wood I and avenue, S. 15., Mon day night. Their living children now number fourteen. "I aspire to ba the father of twelve more," declared the proud Goldman yesterday. "I share my husband's ambition," chimed In Mrs. Goldman, halo and hap py, though Htlll In bed. lOli-ven children, still at home, re joice with their father and mother and are proud of the newest arrivals. They are a healthy, congenial family. "I do feel well onough to be up and about today," said Mrs. Goldman, her face wreathed In smiles, "but the folks Insist that I remain In bed.' I assure you, 1 will be up tomorrow. "As I said, wo hope to Increase, our family by twelve before old age comes. But David and I are now 45 years of age each, and you can guess why we hope for triplets or quadruplets the next time."

Selvers, who has been employed by several of the brewing companies of Los Angeles, was arrest ed yesterday by United States Deputy Marshal Bert Franklin on the chargo of sending; Übelous matter through tlm United States mails. It Is alleged that Reivers sent litera ture to Investors In different parts of the state, in which the statement was made that the stock of the Humboldt Brewing company of Kureka was al mostwalueless. ■» When arrested Selvers "aid .to the arresting: officer that a local brewery, which would be Interested In having the northern enterprise fall, had paid him to send out the circulars. References to the Humboldt Brew- Ing company as the Humbug Brewing company are made In the circular, and the effect of the statements made would, If true, be to depreciate * the value of the stock of the Humboldt company by creating an . impression in the minds of possible Investors that the stock was valueless.
