The Lattst Mews from Charleston. In the Circuit Court at Charleston on Wednesday Judge Guthrie quashed the rule awarded against the County Court to show cause why it should not be fined and attached for contempt in forwarding the certificates of election in Kanawha county for Governor and Congress in violation of an injunction granted by Judge McGinnis, of the Cabell Circuit Court. It also dismissed the bill of injunction and certiorari awarded at the instance of Judge Fleming and Mr. Alderson. This is a victory for the Republicans, and gives GofT and McGinnis a plurality on the face of the returns for Governor and Congress.

Hamilton as Clerk, and W. H. Gibbs as Sergeant at-Arins. In the Senate at this writing there is a deadlock. Senator Minear.

the Republican who was so badly treated by his colleagues two years ago because he voted for Camden, refuses now to act with his party, and Senator Carr, the independent, likewise refuses to caucus with the Republicans, consequently the Senate has not yet been organized.

Charlestown Democrat. Catching Muskrats and Skunks. Several Shepherdstown men are engaged in a business somewhat pecul. iar in this neighborhood, namely, the trapping of muskrats and skunks. The hides of the animals bring a good price, and the trappers get a fair income for their skill and diligence.

The muskrats are caught in traps set under water, where they are known to congregate, and one man has caught three or four at the time in one trap. The skunks are generally caught in steel traps, and though considerable care is taken the most successful hunter generally smells the loudest. It is said that the flesh of both the muskrat and skunk makes good eating, but we haven't heard of anybody around here testing the truthfulness of the statement. Venus and Mars. Two of the loveliest and most conspicuous objects in the sky now are the planets Venus and Mars, which begin to blaze brilliantly in the south" west as soon as the sun goes down.

Venus is the brighter one of the two. Mars and Venus are of peculiar interest as being the planets most likely to support life forms like those upon this earth. In this respect Mars exceeds Venus as an object of interest. Mars will continue to approach the earth until 1892. when he will be closer to the earth than at any time since 1877, at which time his two minuta moons were discovered.

He is quire brilliant upon these near approaches, and in 1710 blazed with such a red fury from the heavens as to cause a general panic. The Dreadful Tornado. On Wednesday afternoon a tornado of an unusual character for the winter season passed over the country. It struck Shepherdstown between 3 and 4 o'clock, but did little or no damage. A report is circulated that several buildings were unroofed at Duffields, but we do not know whether it is true or not.

At Reading, the tornado caused dreadful havoc. A silk mill was smashed to pieces, and a couple of hundred girls and other employee8 were buried in the ruins. It is thought at least a hundred persons were killed in Reading, while many- more were injured. Ten persons were killed in Pittsburg, and at various other places much property was destroyed. A Very Smart Dog.

Mr. William Moore, a Jefferson county farmer, has a pointer dog that has as much sense as some people. The other day Mr. Moore lost one of his gloves, and searched in vain, high and low, for it. Finally he called his dog.

showed him the mate to the glove that was lost, and told him to find the glove. The intelligent animal at once began a systematic search about the barn and adjoining fields, and in a short time returned triumphantly car I rving the lost glove in his mouth. Broke His Leg. Mr. Tlios.

L. Hess, while working in the Pulp Mill last week, met with an accident that resulted in the breaking of one of his legs in two places. Mr. Hess is doing fairly well now. but the double fracture wili confine hiui to the house for some time.

The Philadelphia Times of Tuesday contained the following dispatch from Frederick, Md. "Joseph 1). Baker, one of the wealthiest residents of this county and the president of the Citizens Hank, was cleverly swindled out of yesterday.

One of the directors of the bank wanted a desirable farm and, knowing that 31 r. Baker was well posted on the valueof landed property in this section asked him to make the investment for him. A man had called the day previous and had offered to sell his farm, located in Leesburg, for Mr. Baker knew the section well and thought the property cheap. To make certain, however.

he accompanied the sleek-looking farmer to Leesburg and after looking over the property repaired to the hotel and gave the seller a check for the money. To make certain that there was no trouble about the title he stipulated that the man should sleep in the same house over night. The latter consented, and the pair retired at about the same hour. During the night however, the alleged farmer quietly skipped, made his way to this city and succeeded in disposing of the check. Baker is just out.
