WALL STREET ., tEy the Associated Press NEW YORK, April 27. The recovery In stock prices, which set In yesterday, was carried further at the opening of today's stock market. General Motors. General Electric and Tiepubllc Steel opened a point or more higher and May Department Stores touched a new top, but Dupont showed an Initial loss of 1 and U. S. Steel common opened a point lower. Despite the fact that the quarterly earnings of the t'nited States Steel corporation failed to come up to expectations, operations for the advance were conducted with confidence throughout the early trading. Overnight reports that an artificial break in the Mississippi river levee may be necessary to save New Orleans apparently caused no alarm In speculative circles. The firm undertone of Hie steel group may have been based on unofficial predictions of an advance in steel prices In the next quarter, I". S. Steel common quiakly making up its opening loss of 1 point. Alrhough March earnings statements disclose wMespread irregularity. rail shares were again the centers of speculative interest. Bangor and Arooftook quickly jumped 6 points to a new peak at 81', 4 before the end of the first half hour on reports of unusually high current earnings. Eastern coalers also were In brisk demand with Reading and Baltimore and Ohio leading the early advance in -that group. Standard Oil of California sank to a new low level for the year, but Houston Oil showed independent strength. Except for a further re cession of about five points in Italian lire to around 5:32 cents and moderate rallies In Norwegian and Spanish pesetas, foreign exchanges rates showed little change. Falling to make an Impression on other stocks, bear operators concentrated on the Pierce Arrow Issues, driving the common down 3 points to IS, and the preferred 10. to 58. to the lowest since; 1925. The unfavorable nut "terly earnings were responsible for the lack of support, but other motors held well apart from Jordan. Gulf, Mobile ami Northern and Norfolk and Southern mounted 5 points each on merger rumors. The renewal rate for ll leans was unchanged at four per cent. The closing was Irregular.

GRAY'S CONFESSION' , READ TO JURORS (Continued from page one.) anything I may say may be used against me," Gray had said. "I was introduced to this Mrs. Snyder about two years ago in town by Harry Folsom. I believe that he had picked she and another girl up at the restaurant. I came in from a trip and he introduced me to her. I didn't see her I don't think for two or three months after that. I would say probably it was two months when she wrote me and asked me to get her a corset. I am In the corset business, a salesman. I did that." WOMAN OF CHARM. "She is a woman of great charm 1 probably don't have to tell you that and 1 did like her very much and she was good company and apparently a good pal to spend an evening with. "I think that the intimate relations started in August, if I am not mistaken. I think in September we started to correspond. 1 was in the habit of getting two or three letters a day one practically every day when I was away from home. "She became confidential in the fact she and her husband were not getting along. "I think it was in November or December that she spoke about increasing the insurance on her husband's life. She told me that it was to be J50.000, as I recall. "I saw quite a little, of her from then on. She would come in town shopping and call me up. She called me considerable and wrote to me very often. I will say, to use the slang, she did me pretty hard for a while. MURDEROUS ATTEMPTS. "As this thing kept growing she made several attempts upon his life. She told me, and I told her I thought she was terrible. I think in two instances she gave him sleeping powders or so-called sleeping powders and turned on the gas. I think she gave him bichloride of mercury at the time he was sick of hiccoughs. She wrote ma she gave him four at one time and six at another. All her plans seemed to fail. She started then to hound me on this plan: I said, absolutely no. "I have always been a gentleman and I have always been ab solutely on the level with every-jbody. T absolutely refused at j first. With some veiled threats and intents of love making, she j reached the point where she got 'me m such a whirl that I didn't know where I was. "During the past two weeks ; since this plan was concoted I have been in a literal hell. That i is the truth because I have a very fine "little wife and a wonderful daughter'". ; BUYS SASH WEIGHT j I "The sash weight was bought; In Kingston, N. Y. I bought It I in Kingston a week prior to meet-ling her. I bought the chloroform the same day. It was my idea to just simply chloroform him and the window weight came as an aftermath. ! "She took the window weight jwith her. I had the chloioform j myself. The gauze was an. old duster from my offico which I picked up. "When I got to tlis Snyder! house on Saturday night the Implements were under t'ne mother's' pillow. She had put them there and instructed me to find them' there, together with 1'rpior. i AWAITS FOR VICTIM "She came In that night find :said: 'You are going t do it,' 'aren't you?' J said 'I think I can.'i 1 1 sat there tor probably an hour.! ;They got in about Z o'clock and! Do You Know That OAKLAND HILL. WAS VISIT-ed by the worst fire in Its history about 35 years ago. At that time the entire block at the northeast corner of Main and South streets was wiped out.

He afterward went to Chicago to work on a newspaper. THE FIRST VIADUCT IN LA-fayette was built in 1869 and con nected the Iahr hotel building with the G. H. Monnig building, known as the Lahr annex, now the Rainbow hotel.. The viaduct was across the alley between Fifth and Sixth streets and Its construction was authorized by the city council in January, 1869. THE CARPENTER SHOP CON-ducted by Walter P. James, at Sixth and Tippecanoe streets, was destroyed by fire the night of January 12, 1869. ONE OF THE OLD TIME cooper shops was conducted by Geiger and Davenport at the foot of South street.

JEN-nings and Harvey operated a wholesale drug store at Fifth and Main streets on the site now occupied by the Hub Clothing store. ROLLER SKATES WERE first introduced in Lafaj'ette on January 19, 1869. A demonstration was given in the dining room of the Hotel Lahr and the performer offered to sell the sole right to sell the skates in Lafay ette for $1,500. ABOUT 59 YEARS AGO, TEN- gen and Reitemeier had a hall on Main street, between Seventh and Eighth streets. It was the scene of many entertainments and the members of St. Boniface Catholic church held a fair there. THE OLD ROBESON WOOLEN mills stood on Wild Cat creek southeast of Monitor. They were last run by Ed Robeson, who was with the firm of Ewry and Robe son and company, but retired. The Ewry -woolen-mills were-at the foot of. Columbia street.

THE MONITOR WOOLEN mills, a thriving industry during the Civil war, making cloth and blankets for the soldiers, was moved to Lafayette 60 years ago and occupied a part of the Old Farmers' Warehouse. THE O. W. PEIRCE COMPANY is one of the oldest firms in continuous business in the city. It was founded more than 60 years ago. Connected with the firm then were two Peirces; two Ben-bridges; two Underwoods; two Leonards and two Rinks. THE POLICE DEPARTMENT is preparing for a campaign against violators of the automobile laws. Scores of people violate the law daily. Stop signs are ignored; street cars are passed while discharging and taking on passengers and speeding seems to be a popular diversion. Superin tendent A. G.

She went first STRIKES FIRST BLOW "I followed her to the bedroom and it was I that hit the first blow with this window weight. He started to fight and she got very much excited. I scarcely knew what did happen for a short time. He got me by the neck tie and I think, I am positive, that! she started to belabor him with this sash weight after that. She had the bottle of chloroform andj handkerchief which she poured on the bed. ! , "I don't know whether she gag-j ged him or not. She passed me a necktie to tie his feet and she covered up h!s head. He was still alive the last that I heard.1 She said, 'Is he dead?" I said' no," she said 'This thing has absolutely got to go through.' I said, 'Well, I am through."" J Harlequin Cast Displays Great Skill on Stage Final Rehearsal Proves a Revelation Even to Director Siegfried; Troope Perfect in Presentation. Just how well Russell G. Siegfried, director of the 1927 Harlequin club musical comedy, "The O'Brien Girl", has succeeded in perfecting his cast in the intricacies of that sparkling production, to be presented at the Mars theater Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights of this week, was revealed to a select audience of friends of the organization at a complete dress rehearsal late Tuesday night at the Mars, and the performance was a success beyond the fondest expectations. Indeed, the director himself congratulated the members of the company and the professional orchestra and declared that they had mastered every detail of the play. Mr. Siegfried's methods have really accomplished wonders this year in the Harlequin production. The rehearsal went through without a single hitch and was timed exactly as a public presentation of the play will be. There was not a moment's loss of time, nobody forgot or fumbled in any word, song or dance, and the chorus work was a marvel of precision and grace. The specialties were particularly dazzling. But It was the perfectly trained chorus that came in for the lion's share of appla,use. Both the young men and young women execute maneuvers never attempted before by amateurs, and their work Is faultless, presenting many new ideas in formation and fancy stepping. As for the costumes, they baffle description. Purdue's beauties are seen in the most beautiful creations of the stage costumer's art. They are graceful girls and stunning in their display of feminine charm. The principals perform brilliantly,- bringing out the rich comedy of the play and appearing In song and dance numbers that are by far the best things ever seen in a Harlequin play. The opening performance Thursday night will be a revelation to the p.ublic. Seats are still available at the Mars box office.

BEVERIDGE DIES lEH SUDDENLY (Continued from page one.) firmly fixed in his literary career and in his ability as an orator, as in his statesmanship. His "Life of John Marshall," as regarded as the most illuminating exposition of the great chief justice of the United States supreme court. WAR CORRESPONDENT. After a year in Europe as a war correspondent for a national weekly magazine, Beveridge returned in 1915 to publish, on the eve of America's entrance, a volume "What is Back of the War," which brought pitiless castigation from those who saw in it a justification of. the German action. It was barred from many libraries and training camps. That he should have attained proficiency in many endeavors is more significant in the light of Bevertdge's "humble beginning. He was born October 6, 1862, on an Ohio farm which gave back little more than a scant existence. After the civil war the family moved to Illinois. Before he had quite his 'teens Beveridge had worked as a farm chore boy, a section hand on a railroad, a teamster and logger. He found time, however, to complete grade school and enter De Pauw university, Greencastle, Ind. Working summer vacations as a book agent, Beveridge completed the college work in 1885 and entered the legal profession. Katherine Langsdale, his first wife, died in 1900 and in 1907 he married Catherine Eddy of Chi cago. The former senator had two children, Albert, jr., and Aba- gal1' BRILLIANT ORATOR. Winning an interstate oratorical contest determined his future in law. A scholastic rivalry which developed between Beveridge and James E. Watson, senator from Indiana, during their days at De Pa.uw afterwards became a political rivalry. Both were aspirants for college oratorical honors. It was Beveridge's declamatory powers that first officially aligned him with the republican party. The year he won the interstate oratorical medal, a coveted honor among the "fresh water" colleges of the central states, both democratic and republican state organizations were hearching for spell binders. Both sought the services of the young Hoosier Demosthenes, and the republicans were successful. ADMITTED TO BAR. In 1887, two years after receiving his academic degree, -Beveridge passed the bar examination and became a junior member of an Indianapolis firm. That same year he married Miss Langsdale. The young lawyer became an enthusiastic republican party worker, - winning a position in the organization councils as he attained local eminence as a constitutional lawyer. In 1899, he was injected as a "dark horse" in the race for the United States senate and. to the surprise of the vvuii. iie wda eieuitni again in 1905. Beveridge took with him to Washington a reputation as an orator and he soon justified that renown before his colleagues in the senate. Although thirty-seven years old he became the "boy oratOr" in that assembly of venerable so- lons. A typical Beveridge campaign of oratory swept him ahead of Harry A. New in the 1922 race for the republican nomination for the senate. He was regarded as odds-on favorite in the election until the Ku Klux Klan turned its support to Samuel M. Ralston. President Harding offered Beveridge the ambassadorship to Japan in 1921, and he was said to have been mentioned by the president for the Berlin diplomatic post. STUDENT OF HISTORY.

In 1926 he was awarded a Roosevelt medal for "valuable contribution to history" the life of Marshall. In 1926, Beveridge had been at work several years on a life of Abraham Lincoln. Because of his exhaustive research work Beveridge worked slowly, sometimes spending several months on a single- chapter and frequently revising his copy as many as fifty times.
