Incapable of a Doubt. When Senator Albert J. Beveridge first located in Indianapolis, says Judge, he was engaged in the trial of a case in which his opponent was no less a person than the late Benjamin Harrison. The j-oung man's policy throughout the case was that of the gadfly he hung close about, buzzed, stung, made every at tempt to attract the attention of his distinguished opponent all to no avail. Harrison's attitude was that of utter ignorance of the young lawyer's exist ence. That he was really aware of It, however, was evidenced by a remark made to a brother attorney som eweeks later: "It would he a good thing for that young man If he were occasionally visited by & doubt."

New York. April 2. The feature of the opening of th storx market today was a block of 1.000 shares of United States Steel at C 3-4 and 69 R-8 com pared with 69 1-8 at yesterday's closing. The Copper shares were again very strong. A reactionary tendency was shown bv the epppers soon after the opening, but prlees- hardened in spots elsewhere. Shares of the southern and Southwest ern Railway group wrre In demand with especial strength in Atlantic Coast Line and St. Lopis Southwestern issues. Canadian Pacific rose a point. Pressure agvTtnst the coalers, supplemented by re alizing in United States Steel and the Western- Issues, carried the whole list dowrward rather sharply before 11 o'clock. Activity of the first hour gave way to dullness with the approach of midday, when practically all of the earlier rise was lost. Before this, nowever. Read ing, Union Taciflc and Amalgamated Copper had establlsheii new records for the movement. Lner Amalgamated Copper and United States Steel began to feel the weight of steady pressure. Tne short element became more aggres sive on the theory that recent even's justified a reaction particularly in the fnetaM stocks. ' An additional Incentive for selling United States Steel was found in the trade reports of the last few days which point to a shrinkage In of opera tions for the current months. Of the railway issues. Illinois Cenrtal was the weakest, with a decline of 3 points. Selling stopped when prices of the im portant stocks had reached an average level of half a point under yesterday's close. Little recovery followed. Nor folk and Western became unusually ac tive and advanced to 112. Prices took a turn upward in the lat ter part of the day and trading became livelier. Reading returned to near its earlv high figure and St. Paul was pushed lip a point. United States Steel made little headway upward because of selling. The close was heavy. Lowest prices of the day were scored in the last hour i when United States Steel, Union Pacific I and Reading displaced marked weakness. BEE WIZARD TO BE AMONG 'IS AMONG FREE FEATURES AT THE FAIR THIS YEAR WILL BE NOVEL AND INTERESTING DE MONSTRATION BY AN EXPERT APICULTURIST. Among the many free attractions at thf. Pensacola Interstate Fair this fall will be the ac t of Frank G. Odell. the expert apiculturist. writer and en tertainer, who is known as the bee wizard. This attraction will be of unusual interest Co the farmers and was secured by General Manager Lil Iard especially for their benefit. Mr. Odell performs a number of feats with a swarm of fifty thousand live honey rees and delivers a num ber of Interesting: and educational lec tures on nature study. He lias the highest commendation from agricul tural authorities, leading1 educators and the press, and Mr. Lillard Is sure that the attraction will be a jopular one at the fair this year. Mr. Lillard had some correspond ence with Mr. Odell last year, but the matter was taken up too late to secure this attraction for the 111 fair. He considers it fortunate that he has been able to secure this attraction for the nest fair. Mr. Lillard is now figuring with a number of other attractions and there is. no doubt that the free attractions at the fair this year will be of a much higher order than at any previous fair held here.
