McGixty is the name of a post office just established in Carbon county, this State. People will now know where to find Mt> Giafcy.

BOWLING GREEK IS WIPED OUT A tbee has been discovered in California 176 feet in circnmfereDce six feet from tbe bottom. Such trees as this would make Lock Haven lumbermen smile, if they could get them cut up into boards. Speaker Reed has rid the House of til ibusterers, the floor of lobbyists and the ante-rooms of disreputable women. He has succeeded in checking three of the worst nuisances that have flourished the Capitol._ The New York Mail and Exprtus wants Count Herbert Bis mark sent as Ambassador to the United States. He would find here a new and congenial sphere for bis abilities, and would meet with a hearty welcome by our government and people. The World's Fair bill, as amended, provides that women shall be appointed on the Board of Directors. This is a wise and excellent provision. Tbe women will play as important a part as tbey did in tbe Centennial Exhibition, where the Woman's BaildiDg with its display was one of the most notable and successful features of that gr�at show._ Asd now it appears that tbe principle of the nickel-in-the-slot machine that tempts the public purse at so many public places is in reality a respectable piece of antiquity, and was knowu and used in the templet} of Egypt a tew thousand years ago, IVs the uld story again. No'hing new under the suu. The suburban residents of Philadelphia county have arisen in their might to protest against bad roads. A general protest is going up all over tbe Stale. There are many things in tbo way of legislation and appropriations we can do without. But a road is something netdftd tvory day, and the sooner we be^iu to build them right the bettor. A mile pipe line is among the latest novelties in transportation. A company with a capital of $500,000 has been formed, with headquarter** at Middletown, New Tork. Tbe milk is to be forwarded in tin cans of cylindrical shape, surrounded and propelled by water, the deterioration saved by tbe coolness and smoothness of the transit being claimed aB an advantage beyond computation, Tbe promoters of the Bobeme assert that tbe time of transportation for a distance of one hundred miles will not exceed an hour, while tbe saving in cost will be about one cent a gallon. Governor Beaver has called attention to the fact that an International Exhibition wi!I be held in Jamaica, in January, 1891, and that it is of prime interest for this State iu particular to secure space for an exhibit worthy of our standing and representative of our resources. We trust our people will give heed to the invitation sent us by Jamaica and tbe notice issued by tbe Governor. Applications concerning this subject should be addressed to Thomas Armor, Secretary of the Committee for the United States, Stewart Building, 280 Broadway, New York. Tbe Wreck at Driftwood. The Renovo Neiss gives the following further particulars of tbe big freight wreck and Grc at Driftwood: Train 58 broke in two, and the flagman went back, in fact farther than the rules call for; train GO was coming at such a rate of speed that it could not be stopped in time to save from wreoking. Mr. Frank Feree with bis wreck crow, worked hard all day and until 0 o'clock Wednesday night. They arrived here at nigbt at 11 o'clock bringing1 with them tbe engine which is a complete wreck. Everything was burnt off except the boiler and undergearing&. The wreck crew woai back Thursday morning to the scene of the wreck to clean It up. Besides the engine there were 10 cars burnt up, which is a total loss. All Telegraphic Communications Cot Off Which Hakes It Impossible to Obtain Anything Like Foil Particulars.: Special dispatch to the Evening- Express. Chicago, March 28.-The terrific storm which visited the northwest yesterday reached the city of Louisville about o'clock last night, causing destruction and great loss of life for miles around. twenty-five hundred houses demolished. It is variously estimated that there has been from two thousand to twenty-five hundred houses demolished. Some of them lifted by the death destroying gale and carried four squares. four or five hundred killed.

The suburbs and towns iu the vicinity suffered equally with Louisville. Tbe historic village of Bowling Green with its five thousand inhabitants being completely wiped out. full details impossible. Tbe wires of all tbe telegraph lines leading to Louisville are down and full particulars cannot be had. It is certain, however, to prove one of the greatest calamities that has over occurred in tbis country. perform manual labor, entitled to twelve dollars monthly pension, was rejected. Tbo bill went over. The order fixing tbo daily hour of meeting at 11 a. m. from Monday nuxt was agreed to. in the house. The House to-day passed the bill providing for the admission of Wyoming into tbe UnioD, yeas ISO, nays 127. An amendment by Springer striking out the clause of the Wyoming constitution prov'diug for female suffrage, was lost. The Army Appropriation bill was considered in Committeo of the Whole. the silver question. Representative Bland, of Missouri, and J. R. Williams, members of the House Committee on Coinage, Weights and Measures, to-day submitted to the House a minority report to the opposition to the Windom silver bill. They say the bill is a very dangerous experiment, for if it fails to restore tbe purity of tbe two metals, and fails, beyond any shadow of a doubt, Bilver will be in a worse plight than now. OUR LOCAL DRAG NET. A Keflex of Home Happenings Put Into Readable Shape. THE TIMBER MARKET QUITE ACTIVE AN AJLAKMING RCMOR. A Liberail Contribution. The woodsmen employed at the lumber job where young Kennedy was injured on Kettle Creek, contributed $100 to Mrs. Kennedy, the mother of tbo unfortunate man. He had worked but two weeks at the job before the accident, From 1,000 to 1,500 Lives Said to be Lott in a Cyclone. New York, March 28.-The terrific Btorms west appear to have been of fatal force in tbe vicinity of Louisville, K*n-tucky, although there are no positive or definite reports upon which to base any estimate of the damage. There is not at this hour (2 a. m.) nor has there been for several hours any information whatever from the City of Louisville or vicinity. There have been rumors of alarming loss of life by the force of tbe cycloor, but everything needs confirmation. The absolute break down ot all telegraphic facil-tieB causes great apprehension and suspense. The city of Louisville is beyond all re^ch of telegraph, and is a dead city so far as wire communication is concerned. The cyclone must have spent its greatest force there. ReportB reached here say tbe chief operator of tbe Western Union at Louisville had arrived at Jeffersonville, Ind., across from LouiBville. He reports terrible destruction there, almost entire western portion of Louisville buried in ruins, and 1,000 to 1,500 supposed to be killed. Tbis information is said to have oome on a railroad wire between Jeffersonville and Indianapolis. This must only be taken as a rumor. At present there is no news confirming tbe reports, and tbe statement is only given in the absence of authentic information. the storm general. Chicago, March 27.-Tbo storm which reached here at noon to-day baa been general throughout the Northwest. Suow fell and then turned into rain and sleet, accompanied by wind blowing in to 40 mites an hour. WOKK OF COXQRJ28S. The Wyoming Bill Passes by a Cloae Vote- Consideration of Other Matters.

The anti-trust bill was taken up, and after discussion referred with the amendments offered, to the Judiciary Committee with Instructions to report back in twenty days. The dependent pension bill was then taken up. Plumb's amendment declaring all men who served three months or more, and who are now totally unablo to "Hilarity." Cbas. A. Loder's Merry Comedy Company will be seen at the Opera House to night, in that very laughable farco comedy, "Hilarity." Tho comedy is aa full of fun, music and dances as a pudding is of plums. "Hilarity" makes one laugh spite of one's self. It is impossible to watch the bright young comedian, Chas, A. Loder and his company, and not f >rget all the troubles one has to contend with in daily life. It seems to be the mission of the new interpreters of tbis very sunny farce comedy to make one forget there is such a thing as melancholia. Tho songs are so bright and catchy and tho ohoruses and dances so novel and clever that one falls iuto raptures of delight. Loder's Merry Hilarity Comedy Company is clever one all around, and lis entertainment to.uight should be well attended. A Gootl Work llegun. Yesterday afternoon an epidemic of cleanliness bruko out in this city, and its effects was especially visible on Main street, where many men could be seen at work with shovels and boos scraping up tbe mud, which accumulated during the winter. The work was continued by the light of the electric lumps, and this morning rows of mounds wore noticeable along both sides of tho street. It was a good days work, and although it has been temporarily interrupted by the rain will be continued until tho main thoroughfare is in a perfectly clean condition. Keep the good work progressing in every part of the city when the weather is favorable, and a better appearance will be presented as well as better sanitary conditions established. The mud scraped from tho stroL-ts will be hauled away by tbe city teams. Tbe Furniture Trade. Tbero is no branch of business in Lock Havon in a more flourishing condition than tbe furniture trade.
