will suffer the most powerful lodestone Does "The exhibitor will suffer the most powerful lodestone..." mean " the exhibitor will need the most powerful lodestone to be held above the box during the whole show"? Context: Others spoke confidently of a magnet. The exhibitor, however, will suffer the most powerful lodestone to remain upon the box during the whole show.

This English is very old fashioned. "Suffer" means "allow" or permit. A lodestone is a magnet.
