Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - March 10, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania #11111n NINTH YEAlt-NO. S. LOCK HAVEN, PA., MONDAY, MARCH 10, 1890. FJHCE-TWO CENTS. EVENING EXPRESS KINSLOi; UKOTHKKS---PUBLISHERS CURRENT COMMENT. HeheaFter tbe lettor carriers of Pittsburg will wear white neckties. It may come to shallow tailed coats. The Meadville JitpublicaJi thinks that the Now York "World may yet make Senator Quay a national issue and President of tbe United States. EunorEAXpriuces appear to regard the United States as a sort of patented machine where they can drop a title in the slot and get a wealthy wife. Trustee Howl and, of tbe New York Free Circulating Library, says that the book most called for at all the libraries still is and always has beeu "Uncle Tom's Cabin." What a monument to Mrs. Stowe's greatness. The National Administration seems determined to be respected in the South, if it in not loved there. For intimidatiug a newly appointed postmaster and preventing Irm from attending to his duties, seventeen Georgian Democrats now languish in jail. The German Library Association, of Pittsburg, has decided to turn over its 10,-000 volumes to the Caruegie Library, provided that a separate department bo given to tbe books of tbe association, that it be known as the German Library As-flcci.itiou rnoin*, and that these rooms be free. This association has been working up (or forty yeais toward the point which Mr. Carnegie's wealth enabled him to reach in a day. LihT year about 200,000 bags of rice werB imported to make up what we were short on tbe home production. About the same amount will be required during the present year. It seems strange that with an abundance of lauds excellently adapted to growing tbis crop, the Southern planters should not take adi-autage of this con-ditiou of things and grow enough of this grain to at least supply the home demand. The Baltimore a; d Ohio railroad through its relief depart mei.t comes to swell the reports Rent out by other railroads as lo the excellent results which have come from the plan of contribution aud* relief organized several years ago. This road paid during last December in the way uf death benefits and temporary relief $'2*2,258. From May 1, 1S80, until December 1, 1889, it has paid out to employes and tbeir families $2,179,176, a princely sum, and one that must have resulted in an incalculable amount of good. It seems that the North Dakota lottery scheme is still alive an.i may yet be carried through. From a letter written by tbe Attorney-General of the State, it appears that tbe plan is notbing less than the transfer of the Louisiana Lottery bodily to North Dakota and setting it up there under the sanction of the State. Its charter, it is reported, expires in 1893, and public sentiment in Louisiana wili not permit it to be renewed. North Dakota is very poor, aud the large amount of money offered by tbe lottery company is a great temptation. A Womun Machinist, One of the prettiest and moct Eeusiblo girls in Mount Carmcl, Connecticut", Miss Nellie Patterson, has just finished a four-years1 apprenticeship, and \a now earning her living as u full-fledged machinist. She had to make her way in life, so she learned the work for which she had a natural bent. Now she is pronounced as clever aud efficient as any workman in the shop where she is employed, while her success has been accomplished without any sacrifice of womanliness. PERSONAL PKNCILING8.

John Miller, formerly post master at tialona, died yesterday at his home iu that place of paralysis; aged To years. Funeral to-morrow at 10 o'clock a. in., at Salooa. A Miscellaneous Mixture of Sense and Nonsense Scissored aud Scribbled. They were three boys together. Birds of a feather-Widely con(iltions ranged, With time ihelr habits changed; One grew a rioter* drank all things known From here to Asia, And, ere a hair his manhood's years had flown. Died of aphasia; One a reformer grew aud voted "dry," He ucUherdrauk noruuioued, hut tie ate pie; He, too, died-without question, Of spleen aud lndigestlou. The third ali good thtnga tried Id moderation, Lived to old age, attained a loftj- station. �***�* Of good sawH in these few words lies one: "The middle course is e'er the wise one." "My dear friend, I am in despair. Alma's heart is as hard as steol." "Suppose you try it with diamonds; they are harder than steel, you kuow." The nuisance of the hotel was in tbe parlor warbling "Oh, would I wereabird." "Well, hero's a beginning for you," said the landlord. And he handed him his bill. Dead meu tell no tales, but the ones who write their obituaries often do. The pessimist is the man who will insist on wearing bis coat inside out if the lining happens to bo shabby. A woman's beauty may be alt in her eye, but it is there just the same. On philosphical principles, tbe lightheaded man is just the fellow to fall on his feet. It would seem tbat tbe rear is the proper place for the pushing man, but be is seldom there. Quite neat and appropriate is it that a cross examination is ofteu instituted to settle a vexed question. You may sneer at fair discretion, When solid at the bank. Your rudeness Is mere pleasantry, And quite the thing for rautc. Men will thrust upou you favors, And fawn uud roudescend Till you wonder at your kingship, Wheu you don't need a friend. The amount which a boy thinks he learns about a business in a week would stagger the owner to carry off. Pekuaps it's because whiskey is suob a auaiu ou the system that, bard drinkers are continually getting broke.

"MissLaura,"aaid the young roan softly "You have nover yet called me by my first name. It would seem so much more-more friendly if you would sometimes call mo William." "You have a middle name, bare you not ?" inquired tho beautiful girl. "Yes, but I never use it," be replied. "I always write my name William O, Shackelford." "Ah, yei," sho murmured, "Tho I)., I dare say, stands for Dennis," Mr. Shackelford did not stay lone alter that Secretary itlaiue'i* Brother Promoted. Washinutos, March U--Robert G.

Klfft-I'g 1O0O Feet Structure In Paris to be Completely Dwarfed. Washington, March 8.-The most conspicuous feature of the great exposition at Chicago in the year 1892 will be a tower calculated to surpass tbat of M. Eiffel almost as a mountain does a molehill. It ia not to be supposed tbat tho Metropolis by the Lakes would be willing to find itself outdone in any point by effete Europe. Therefore, if a tower ia to bo had, it must necessarily dwarf anything of the sort hitherto attempted by man. Of course, there is no record as to the height of tbe Tower of Babel. Certainly, bow-ever, it did not compare with tbat of tbe French engineer-it being a physical impossibility to pile up atones on top of one another in any manner as tbat by which a ladder-like frame of iron may be uplifted into tbe sky. Probably, if the truth were known, tbe Babel affair did not reach an al ti tude of500 feet-if it got nearly so high. Five hundred and fifty feet, mind you, was the utmost altitude attained by a building of human construction up to 1388 A. D. Then H. Eiffel, by mechanical contrivance, climbed up to 1,000 feet above the ground, and bis achievement was regarded as the most wonderful modern illustration of tbe evolution of man as a climbing animal from bis original arboreal condition. Now, if 1,000 feet of vertical erection was a marvel, it follows tbat every additional foot was a superadded miracle, just as every inch over and above six feet makes a man gigantic. But Chicago will not be content to surpass any previous exploit by a small margin of superiority; it must insist upon astonishing tbe world with something never before approached. Tbe tower of the Chicago World's Fair will be 1,600 feet in height-GOO feet higher than tbe one which astonished the peoples of the earth at the French Exposition. To realize in some small measure what a difference in altitude this is yon have only to place the plans of the two in vertical projection side by side. Positively the topmost point of tbe Tour d'Eiffel hardly seems to reach much above the middle of tho proposed Chicago monument to civilization. Visitors to the Paris show all came away more vividly impressed with the tower than with anything else they saw. You can imagine, then, what a sensation will be created by this monstrous work, which is to be, in comprrison to the colossal structure by the Seine, as a man six feet odd inches in height is to another w hose stature is only four . feet nothing. Nor is this stupendous project merely considered as a thing that is likely to be put through. Already it Is as good as determined upon, and the Phoonix Iron Works has offered estimates for tbe construction of the tower, pronouncing tbe plan for it entirely practicable. It will cost $1,500,000, or $500,000 more than tbe Eiffel Tower. At the base it will be a circle 400 feet in diameter, diminishing to 276 feet in diameter at the top. Around it from base to summit will wind a stairway 70 feet in width in spiral fashion, on which cars will be run at one-minute headway bj a system newly invented. The whole distance from bottom to top will be three and three-fourth miles by car line. Also there will be another road upward running between the curves of the spiral already described, for a driveway, by which carriages may be comfortably driven up. Sixteen hundred feet is a big climb; bat it will not actually seem so, because the grade will only be a little more than 40 feet of ascent in every 1,300 feet or so of journey-tbat making one circuit of the tower at tho bottom and a little more at the top. This method of ascending will be infinitely preferable to tbe elevator plan of the Eiffel Tower, for several reasons. At overy circuit of the mi�bty structure the views will change with tbe elevation, and there will be no such thing as the elevator sea-sickneBS, whiob caused a majority of the visitors to the Tour d'Eiffel to go no further tban the first landing.
