Down the Florence Consulate.

A FUTDEE POK FLAX IN THIS COUNTRY
iSrBCIAL TEIXGBAM TO THE DISrATCH.1
"Washington'. May 12. It is said in ad
ministration circles that a large latch of
consols will almost certainly be appointed
this week, and that supplemented, probably,
by a considerable number of Presidents!
postmasters, among which it is just possible
the came of some gentleman for Pittsburg
Persons who know something of the im
pression on Secretary Blaine made by Mr.
Jame.s Y. Long, and his remarkable array
of solid indorsements, say that among the
Allegheny connty appointments to positions
in the Consular service will almost certainly
be that of Sir. Long. Mr. Long is said at
the State Department to be particularly
pressed by Senator Cameron and Mr C. L.
Magee. The relations of Mr. Blaine and
Mr. Cameron hare been particularly friend
ly, for some reason, since the Secretary's
return to public life, and everybody knows
of the warmth and sincerity of Mr. Blaine's
friendship for Mr. Magee. It is said at the
State Department that previous to his de
. parture for Europe the Senator made a spe
cial and personal plea for the appointment
of Mr. Long, and that Mr. Magee's support
has been even more earnest. It is for these
reasons that persons near Mr. Blaine believe
the Secretary will not pass by Mr. Long's
application for the Florence Consulate.
3?he resignation of Judge Jenks, the
Solicitor General, was accepted, to take
effect on the 15th, next "Wednesday. It is
therefore expected that a new incumbent
for this important office, which has been
filled with acknowledged ability by Judge
Jenks, will be appointed this week, but it
has not leaked out who the President has in
his mind. It appears for some reason to be
a general opinion, however, that Pennsyl
vania will not again secure the honor, and
there is an impression that Attorney General
Miller has a personal friend whom he would
like to see' in that position. It is stated
upon authority that. Judge Jenks will be
retained as counsel for the case of the Gov
ernment against the Bell Telephone monopoly-
LET TJS GBOW FLAX.
A Communication From Ireland to the Afri-
cultural Department A Source of
Wealth for American Farmers
The Value of the Crop.
"Washix GTON.May 12. Last week Prof.
Willetts, the Assistant Secretary of Agri
culture, had under consideration a letter
from Ireland, which he thinks may offer a
solution of the economic problem: "What
shall take the place of wheat on farms
where it can no longer be raised at a profit ?
The writer, who has been familiar with flax
growing and linen manufacturing since
1840, says in his interesting communication:
There are only two establishments weaving
one at Webster, Mass and the other at Apple
ton, Wis the latter aoing bat little 'wearing
and neither weaving anything finer than crash.
There Is nothing in the climate or soil conflict
ing with the assertion that lust as good flax
and linen may he produced in every state in
the American Union as in any country. Ger
many now tplns and weaves the finest linen,
and she has no essentially differing climate
Many things become successful in America
from the facility with which the people take up
and adopt improved processes and appliances,
and this may, be the salvation of the linen in
yesar, othe importance of which there is no
question. There u every reason whv the
American farmers should prodnce 1,000,000
acres of flax for both seed and liber over and
above what is now produced, which wonld give
12,000.000 to 15,000,000 bushels of teed, worth as
many millions of dollars, and 2,500,000 tons of
flax straw worth SO 000,000, and from which
600,000 tons of flax fiber would be obtained,
worth 100,000,000. Once established, American
invention would, as in allother industries, soon
build up an industry to consume this raw
I wish the State experimental farms to grow
as small amount in each State and such private
farmers as are disposed to do the same. The
flax should be sown upon any good mellow soil
which has been well manured the past year, or
active chemical fertilizers may be employed on
areas to a reasonable extent. The seed should
be town at the rate of 2 bushels on an acre of
land, brushed in, and no further attention is
needed excepting that any large weeds may be
removed until the flax has "turned" for half
its length, when it should be palled, cured and
cared for to keep it bright in the same manner
as is done with hay.
The seed may be taken off by rippling or by
roller threshing, and there will be a market for
all flax straw thus grown at 20 per ton. The
crop should give 2U tons of straw to an acre
and 12to 15 bn.hels olseed. The cost of pull
ing is in Canada $5 an acre.
Prof. "Willetts has informed the sender
that the subject of his letter would be
earnestly considered by the 'department,
which would lend its aid to any effort to in
crease or diversify the agricultural indus
tries of this country.
BLAINE ABOUT, BROKEN DOWN.
The Secretary of Stnte No More the Vig
orous Man of a YearAgo,
"Washington, '.May 11. Mr. Blaine, if
not absolutely broken down, is very badly
shaken. He is not at all the man he was
three months ago when he walked into the
State Department. He walked like an
Apollo then. His face was remarkably,
almost unnaturally, white, and his hair was
very white, too, but his eye was steady and
full of fire, his body erect, his head high
and haughty, and his step firm. Now all
is changed all save the pallorof his cheek,
which has grown deeper, and the whiteness
of his hair.
To one who saw him in his pride as he
marched like a conquering hero into the
room oi the Secretary of State on March 6,
and who sees him now painfully making
his way across the lobby in the State De
partment, or reclining in his carriage as he
is being driven from his office to his hotel,
500 or GOO yards distant, the contrast is
striking and melancholy.
After dinner last evening he and Mrs.
Blaine got into their carriage and drove
down to Lafayette square to view the im
provements now being put on the house
they are to occupy. When the carriage
came to a standstill before the building Mrs.
Blaine had to rise, open the door and get
outHrsL Then the Secretary slowly and
painfully hoisted himself up, and it took
apparently all the help his arms could give
him to enable his legs to get him on his
feet. Yesterday he was too ill to accompany
the President down the Potomac.

KWAEK, May 12. Another brewery
"combine" has been consummated in this
city, in which millions of dollars are rep
resented. The breweries are those of Gott
fried Krueger and Christina Trefz, in this

number of Hew Jersey, New York and
English capitalists. The titles to each of
the breweries will pass to the company, but
the actual control of the property will re
main in the hands of the present owners for
about ten years. Part of the payments will
be in etocli ot the new company, but there
will be large cash payments. It is stated
that Mr. Krueger will receive $1,000,000 in
cash, while Mr. Hauck Is pat down far

An Ex-CoDTiet Arretted on a Charge of

ISTZCI.lt, TXLEOIUM TO TKX DISPATCH. 1
Canton, O., May 12. Detective Morris,
of pinkertou'i Chicago office, to-day arrested
here Tom Sadler, an extponvict, charged with
attempting to wreck the limited vestibule
New York-Chicago express on the Pitts
burg, Port "Wayne and Chicago Bjulroad.
Another party was also arrested whose iden
tity is being held secret for fear it may give
warning to other parties wanted on the same
charge whose early arrest is expected.
Twtf attempts were made to wreck the tram
near here a few nights apart about a month
ago. Kails and ties were strapped on the track,
but luckily the obstructions were discovered
by farmers living near and removed before the
train arrived. In the one Instance it was neces
sary, to flag the train.
Sadler formerly worked as a section hand on
the road. He was paroled from the Ohio Peni
tentiary, where he was sent in 1881 for com
plicity in the murder of John Tomey, for
which Michael Callahan was hung.

Youngstown, May 12. The Pittsburg,
Youngstown and Ashtabula Railroad has
been engaged here erecting an elegant pas
senger station, building massive retaining
walls and making other improvements aggre
gating 100,000, all of which are nearly com

company had 500 men on a construction train
loaded with ties and steel rails backed along
side the disputed right of war, and in less than
an hour laid and ballasted 1,600 feet of track,
connecting with their passenger station, and
placed a train of cars on it. This momlng
Jndge Johnston issued an injunction on appli
cation ot Mr. Baldwin, but the company is in
possession, and the courts will decide as to
what are his lights in the premises.

Dr. Smith, at No. 502
COMES TO THE RESCUR
No human beinz is exemot from disease. Ihm
most powerful and apparently healthy have n
guarantee that their strentrth will nor, he taken
from them abd their bodies wasted by soma
loathsome disease. Few who ara in health
consider their liability to disease or pay at
tention to the ills or tbeir suffering fellow
creatures. Tbe following very lnterestlnj: case
Is tbat of a woman whose mairnlncent
physique could apparently defy the rar
apes of disease and pain, sad whose muscles
seemed secure from the ills which weaker
women are heir to, yet she for three long years
was a terrible sufferer and was In a most pitia
ble condition imaginable, when she applied to
Dr. Smith. The case in question was tbat of
Mrs. L. H. Auberry, who resides at Mercer.Pa.
Mrs. A. had been afflicted with hemorrhoids
for a number of years without paying very
much attention to tnem. But as the years
went by the disease bogan to grow upon her.
File-tumors began to mate their appearance at
each movement of the bowels. These tumors
began to increase in size, and when prolapsed
would bleed profusely. The pain and
suffering which she experienced from
them, together with tho loss ot blood,
from repeated hemorrhages gradually under
mined nernervons sysrem until she became a
Physical wreck. She becanie weak and languid,
be least physical exertion caused great
fatigue. She lived in constant fear that some
thing dreadful was abotrt to happen. She suf
fered from melancholy, tnd felt that she would
never get well. A feeling would come
over her that she wa3 alone in the world, and
was constantly looking on the dark side of
lite. She had tried the alill of so many pbyst
cians without finding relief that she
bad given up a 1 hopes of ever being
restored to health. In connection with haemorr
hoids she suffered from female weakness
in its worst form. a.nd had become so
thoroughly discouraged t hat she had given up
in despair. Hearing uf tlie remarkable cures
tbat are being made by Dr. Smith, tbe mag
netic physician, at No. 1 02 Penn ave., she de
cided to consult him, avid make one mora
effect to be restored to health. She did so,
and began treatment April 3. 3Irs. Auberry is
now convalescent, and Is one of the happiest
women in una oiaie.
This is but one case among hundreds. The
doctor's offices are crowdef 1 dally with cripples
and invalids of every degree and condition. No
disease escapes the influence of the magnetic
touch, and no person need despair ot receiving
beneflts therefrom. No mzttter what the con
dition or how long you haro been sick, there is
hope lefr. No matter what other physicians
have failed to do, or what prejudiced, people
say, Mrs. Auberry had been under tbe care of
several eminent physicians before coming to
Dr. Smith, and had never been helped.
When other doctors give yon up. and the hos
pitals torn you away as incurable, go straight
to 02 Penn ave. and consult Dr. Smith; he
cures after aH other means fall.
