Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - July 29, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAR-NO. 127 LOCK HAVEN, PA.. TUESDAY. JULY 29, 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS BUNSLCB BROTHERS---POBLISHKRS CURRENT COMMENT. If England oouldn't whip the United ' States on aoconnt of tea in 1770, she will not attempt it on aooouut of sealskin in 1890. _ Electricity cares as well as kills. Inanimate bodies have been galvanized into life as effectually as living beings have been struck dead. There is to bo a recount of the population of the cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Judging from the bad blood exhibited during the first taking of the census, it is probable the militia will have t3 bo oalled out before the new count is finished. Tiie Louisiana farmers are deolaring against the lottery Bwindlo, and will make a vigorous campaign to kill it. It is probable that the bill urged by Postmaster General Wanamaker to seize the lottery swindler's mail will do tbe work before the Louisiana farmers have the opportunity. _ The Governor of Mississippi has offered a reward of $5,000 for the arrest and con-viotion of the murderer of F. M. B. Cook, the murdered Republican leader. This evinces a determined purpose on the part of the Oevernor to hunt the murderer down, but we fear be will never be successful. The Mississippi politioal murderer, especially when he kills a Republican, is never arrested. Mrs. Grover Cleveland is the possessor of diamonds the total collection of whioh set and mounted, is estimated at fully $50,000. On the day of ber marriage she received a magnificent ring and aneoklaco solitaire from her husband, and diamond pins for-hor hair from Seoretary and Mrs. Whitney, but the first diamond ring she ever possessed was given to her by one of her Buffalo friends. It was a tiny little star of diamonds, and she wore it upon her little Snger tbe day she beoame Mrs. Cleveland. Sinoe this time, upon birthdays and at Christmas, Mr. Cleveland has always presented his wife with diamonds. Evert man who wants to go through life with tbe aonscionsneBS of an approving conscience should strive to walk consistently in the world. If he is a drinker it is better that he walk into the front door of the rumsbop tban to steal around the back way. If bo is a temmperance man he should be a total abstainer in fact as well as in theory. If he wants to have oredit for sincerity among bis neighbors, and especially among those who do not believe in total abstinence or in prohibition, he must have no bodily infirmaties wbicb necessitate the ubo of wine, beer, whisky or patent medicines, the base of which is mean whisky. In short his actions and his language must correspond. Otherwise he will be without influenoe and men will desplfe him as one who wears a mask before the public. A Story Without a Moral. Frum the St. Paul Globe. There was an occurrence not long ago in the city of Minneapolis which well^llus-trated the making of virtue a necessity andprofltingthereby. A lady, than whose name there is none better known in the theatrical world, waB playing an engagement at the Grand. She stopped of course at the West. One day she waB engaged in looking over her wardrobe, or a portion of it, in her room, and being busy bad her luncheon sent to ber room. When il came her stage diamonds, made of the purest paste, was scattered about on the table, among them being a large cross, heavily set with sparkling diamonds. It oangbt the eye of tbe waiter who brought up the tray, and by a little juggliug with bis napkin he secured it. He rushed down town as soon as possible to, in vulgar parlance, "hock" it, but found that heoould raise but 50 oentson it. He was a "smootby guy," so he hastened back to the hotel, only to find that the lady had departed for the matinee performance. To the theatre he went, and, securing admission at the Btage entrance on "pressing business from Miss-, -Hotol" he found the lady and restored to her the diamond cross, which he plausibly sot forth bad become entangled in a napkin. She had never even missed tbe ornament, but she waB so delighted with the fellow's honesty that Bhe bestowed on him a $5 bill. Thia is a true story, and one whioh will not be incorporated among those in the Sunday Bohool books under the title "The Reward of Honesty." To Protect the Pier. Ex-boom boss McGill aud several workmen are engaged in building a crib in the river a short distance above the river bridge. The crib when completed will be floated down to the pier of the bridge ?eareBt the Lockport shore, and then filled with stone to protect the pier. Adjourned Court. An adjourned session of court will bo bold Saturday, August 30th, at 9 o'clock , m. WHERE THE MILLIONS WENT Eeport of the Seoretary of the Flood Belief Commission.
