rSriCIAI. TELEOIUJI TO THE DISrATCn.l
Mansfield, April 3. A fiendish at
tempt was made to wreck the Pennsylvania
limited vestibule train Ho. 5, at Louisville,
between Alliance and Canton, last niclit
about 12 o'clock. Eight pieces of iron, such
as are used to fasten T rails, rere tightly
H-edged in the switch near the little town.
An east-bound passenger train passed safely
over the obstruction, but an unusual jolting
caused the trainmen to be alarmed, and they
reported the matter to the operator.
He investigated the cause and barely suc
ceeded in stopping the limited before it
reached the switch. Efforts to take the irons
out of the switch by hand proved futile. A
fireman bad to be sent back to the engine, and
with tbe hammer ho procured they wore forced
oat. They had been placed in tbe switch with
the east ends rai.ed so as to derail a westbound
train, while allowing an castbound to pass over
it with only a little jarring.
The switch is only 60 feet from a bridge, and
the momentum would have thrown the whole
train into the creek, and the consequences
would hare been terrible. The train which it
was sought to wreck had more passengers than
it usually has, the majority of whom were from
New York and Philadelphia. But few of them
discovered the reason why the flyer was

an inveterate user of tobacco for 6t) years, and
both smoked and chewed. One day about three
weeks ago Mr. Best left his home and was cone
about four hours, when his sop went to look
lor him. Ho found the old gentleman in Mar
shall's store, near Wilmington An investiga
tion proved that Mr. Best had lost his mind
and sight since leaving home.
For a few days he remained in that condi
tion, when gradually his mind began to clear
and his sicht came back, to him so that he
could see without the aid of glasses. Before
this he was troubled with the nalns and aches
of old age. Now these are all gone. But the
strangest part of the case is the fact that he
has forgotten that he ever used tobacco, and the
taste of it makes him deathly s,ck. He is now
in better health than he has been since he was
a boy. He has been married 00 years, and his
wife Is still living.

THE DEATH MANIA.
Mrs. Minnie Flechslg Reads of a Suicides
and, In an Insane Interval, Hangs Her
self A Fatliciic Letter Left.
Mrs, Minnie Flechsig, the young wife of
Herman Flechsig, hanged herself yesterday
morning at her residence, at No. 119 Web
ster street, Allegheny. The family had just
moved to the house, and the victim was the
last one in the house on Tuesday night
"When her husband awoke in the morning
he noticed her absence. In the kitchen he
found the woman hanging in the doorway.
The husband hardly knows what caused
this great misfortune.
The deceased had been suffering from an
inflammation of the breast, and some time
ago consulted Drs. Perron and Boyd, who
assured her there was nothing to fear. A
short time since she became very uneasy
and consulted another doctor, who told her
that she was suffering from cancer. This
almost crazed her. The immediate cause of
the suicide is supposed to be the reading of
an account of a woman's suicide by hanging
herself to a bed post,
Mr. Flechsig and wife lived very happily
together, having been married five years.
The following letter was found in the dress
she wore at the time of the suicide:
This is what I got ror not taking Dr. Herron's
advice and not worrjing. 1 could not help it.
It affected me so ranch. I am getting tired ot
people talking to me about it. Other people
would laugh at things I would cry for. Maybe
it is best that my happy days are past, I was
told that this sickness would keep on until it
affected my mind, so I got careless and could
not do anything tho way I wished to. It is not
the confusion here that caused it, because it
will be all right. Is it not dreadful to be that
wa ? I leave a good future home and kind
husband. Goodby, dear Henry. Do not sell
any of my wedding presents, and your picture,
which clings to my heart, leave it with me. I
can't even write any more.
She was the daughter of Charles Stein
hauser, once a prominent Allegheny butcher.
GONE TO OKLAHOMA.
Pittsburg and Shatpsbnrg Contribute
Boomers for the Territory.
Harry S. Lydick. a member of the Alle
gheny County Bar, and Ira Kimmell, of
Sharpsburg, left yesterday afternoon for the
"West, They are "Oklahoma boomers,"
and are heading for the outskirts of the new
country-ready to cross over the line among
the first, on April 22, tbe date for opening
the country for settlers. Both young men
are members of Battery B, and both have
had previous Western experiences.
Mr. Lydick is a graduate of the Law De
partment of the Michigan University of the
class of '86, is admitted to practice in the
courts of that State, and in June, 1887, was
admitted in this county. He is one of the
brightest and most energetic of voung law
yers and will be heard from, in "his new lo
cation. The National Complaint.
Thomas J. Riley, 521 West Sixty-first street,
New York, writes:
"I had very severe attacks of dyspepsia, ac
companied with wind and pains in the side and
stomach. Everything I ate disagreed with me,
and I lost flesh daily. Internal medicine only
afforded me temporary relief. I commenced
applying Alcock's Porous Plasters, one on the
pit of the stomoch and one below, just above
the navel. In a few hours my pains very much
abated. In two days my food appeared to
agree with me. At the end of a week 1 was
neatly well, but continued wearing the plasters
as a precaution. I have used altogether six
plasters, and must say they are the cheapest
and best medicine ever invented."
