Botanist Porte, of the Department of Agricul- ture, is of opinion that a process been discovered by which the Ramee plant can be made into cloth at such moderate cost that it will soon become a dangerous rival to cotton. "About a month said Mr. Porte In conversa- tion on this subject, "infowpation reached this department that Thomas Mabbitt, a Providence manufacturer, had succeeded in doing with ramee what hundreds, I might say thousands, had tried and failed to is he bad, at small cost, woven ramee fibre into cloth. ramee fibre hich he had thus succeeded in weaving had been prepared by a process discovered by Charles Top- ham, a chemist of Salem, Mass. Top- bam, by a secret formula, had turned the fibre into a substance for weaving. Mr. Tophagi, it seems, had been experi- menting ramee for years, like a great many other men, and only suc- ceeded after innump-iMe failures. I was ordered by the u iment to go to New England and the dis- joveries of Messrs. Topliam and Mab- bitt. I did so, and wbo.t I saw has con- vinced me that tho pr of the utili- sation of ramee has a ast been satis- factorily solved." THE SWITCH WAS OPEN.

M Gil- bert, proprietor of the Gilbert starch works of this city, and W. G. Work, sec- retary of the Sleeper starch works, have returned from Buffalo, N. Y., bringing the information that while there they sold their factories to a mammoth syndi- 3ate, which includes the proprietors of the largest starch works in the United States. Back of the American capitalists is a British syndicate. The price paid for the Gilbert works was and for the Sleeper works 51-0.000. Mr. Work is authority for the state- ment that the syndicate now owns or controls every starch factory of any im- portance in the United States with one single exception. The design is tohtmt the production and control prices. Some the factories will be closed. Those I in a position to know, say that the Sleeper works will be shut dowa aad perhaps the Gilbert factory. Bat No Recollection of Betef Granted a Decroe aad Lived With Him Wife Until HU Death. CijrccfSATi, Feb. Uni- ted States Attorney Harry Probasco has gone to Garden, O., to investigate a cam of fraudulent pension that rests upon a very curious circumstances. Some time ago a pension was granted to Nancy Smith, because she was the widow of soldier. Not long ago it came to tho ears of the District Attorney that this same Nancy Smith was not the widow of the soldier, but had been from him for many years before his death, airs. Smith was at once called, to time. Sho denied absolutely that she had been divorced from her hi band. Then the records were searched and the decree of divorce was found and she was confronted with it. Then sho made a curious statement, which resulted in tho present investiga- tion. She said that her husband was a worthless fellow and was wasting her property in dissipation. She consulted with lawyers and they in some way en- abled her to administer the property as a single woman. She thought it niighl be possible that they had obtained a di- vorce for her without her knowledge She remembered of testifying in court to the character of her husband and to his treatment of her, but of any talk ol divorce she had no recollection. As proof of this she states that she lived on with the man whom she sup posed to be her husband, keeping him as straight as possible and treating him in every way as her husband. This case is probably without a parallel in the records of pension cases, which contain many curious things. The question is whether the Government will be able to prosecute its case and obtain the monej which has already been paid out, if the woman's story is found credible am more than probable.

The Ledger says: The anthracite coal trade con- tinues very dull for domestic sizes and as active as ever for the furnace and small steam sizes, which have become very scarce. The price for pea coal has been advanced to at the mines, and most of the shippers are dis- inclined to book new contracts for that size, as they have already more orders than they can supplv. Some of the iron furnaces in the Lehigh and Sohuylkill valleys have begun to use broken coal to make up the shortness in the supply of lump and steamboat sizes and this will afford some relief to the market, which is gorged with a large accumula- tion of broken, egg, stove and chestnut sizes. The prices for anthracite are weaker than they have been at any time since last May. Shading from the circular figures is being done openly, even by the large mining and carrying companies. Th8 Pveading company is selling to every- body at ten cents per ton below the cir- cular nrices. and tboagentsof the Penn- svlvania Railroad Company are reported as selling their anthracite at twenty to twenty-five cents per ton below the cir- cular prices. The Wyoming and Lehigh individual operators have unsettled the New rk and Now England markets by freely and openly selling stove coal at a cat from forty to fifty cents per ton, and in some instances at a con- cession. A meeting of the general sales ajont's of anthracite companies will lie held ia New York next Thursday discuss tho condition of the coal AWPUIi TRAGEDY. A.
