Like a Hash of darkness in the clear sky of noon-day, came the announcement on Wednesday that one of Clarksburg's bright, active and most useful business men had been summoned by death's swift messenger. On Saturday he was seen ou the street in the fall enjoyment of health and seemingly in the acme of his usefulness. He had just that day returned from New York City. On Monday he was unconscious and so remained un til his death which occurred about noon on Wednesday. The trouble was a serious disorder of the bowels. His frank, good natured countenance, his cheer ful words and his cordial greet ings will be missed by a large number of his warm friends in this city. He was sole proprietor o? the wholesale pro T?ram^Co!?ftnd was working up a very large trade, his being one of the largest produce con cerns in the State. Mr. Thorn was about 42 years old and leaves a wife and two daughters?Alice and Florence. Alice, the oldest, is scarcely fourteen years of age and her sister much younger. They are exceedingly bright and pretty girls and are universal favorites. Mrs. Thorn nee Miss Columbia Gittings, is a sister of Prof. John G. Gittings, and in her great bereavement has the sympathy of many friends. Mr. Thorn left his family com fortably provided for, having life insurance to the amount of over $10,000 in addition to his property. He made friends easily, was a moral, upright man, kind to his friends and devoted to his family. Although not a member of church, he seemed to enjoy attending its services and contributed liberally to the its financial calls. He was just the kind of man we could ill afford to lose "He has crossed the boundaries of time" and let us hope that in the great boyond he shares freely the unbounded mercies of Almighty God.

The rumor that Bucks would have a regular delu weddings this spring ba verified. Some girls should that it is not just, the to do to recognize too aquintances when # street." A young la presumed suios-of. lh' qaintances. An engagement does not al ways mean a wedding these days. In old times royal courts bad professional jesters to amuse them. Nowadays 4he fun-making home and abroad for exclusive circles is made by "social headers.'' V There came wafted over the waters from Bermuda, that "beautiful isle of the sea," news of the matrimonial engagement of another "Mew York girl" to an Englisn army officer. A wedding in Paris in May will be that of an American widow, once divorced, to a Frenchman of title who ' looks like sixty," but is ten years older. Of course, it will be one of those "notablp social events." There is but one way to stamp out fashionable scandals, and that way is never to repeat them. This experiment, when sincerely adhered to; has ever been suc cessful. When a young lady of the period says she has jilted a cer tain fashionable gent it is very difficult to tell just who was jilted. LET 'EM FIGHT. German Bag* rs. Wot Virginia Hug*. Charleston, W.

Pro fessor Hopkins has in the last few years made a careful study of the causes of destruction of ?ur pine forests and finds that a small insect in the bark causes the destruction of the tree. Dur ing the last summer he spent some time in the forests in Ger many studying the insects that he found there and their habits. He found a small prolific insect which feeds upon the injurious one, multiplies rapidly and is not injurious to timber.

TERRIBLEACCIDIiNT Weston. W. Va.. April 16.? Train No. 41 on theGauley divi sion of the West Virginia <fc Pitta burgh railroad was derailed' to day. It was caused by o broken switch in the yards at Centralla and made a bad wreck, tearing I up about one hundred feet of 'track. A large section force was immediately put to work to clear | tho main track. The tank of the engine was turned up side down in sucb a manner that it was ne cessary to use jacks to raise it to a certain height in order to shove it off the main track. Just as the section men were in the act of doing this the tank slipped o(T the jacks, catching live of the , men, killing J. V. Dennison, of Centralia, breaking one arm of John Lloyd, both legs of Henry Skinner, one leg of William Roane and crushing both legs and injuring the back of George Shorts. The president of the road, Senator Camden, and Vice President Kunst were on a special train en route to Gauley and arrived at Centralia a few hours after the accident. They gave their personal attention to the injured, arranging a special train from Sutton to bring doc tors, who say all have probably received fatal injuries, but they have hopes of saving two out of the five. MORE LOCAL. Some of our reports from the country were lost this week. This accounts for them not appearing. The World's Fair rate from Clarksburg to Cnicago and re turn is $20.55. Tickets on sale every day. which will be good returning until Nov. 14. A very attractive display,show ing the change that can be pro duced by filtering our hydrant water, may be seen in front of Osburn's shoo store. The annual G. A. R. Encamp ment took place a$ Grafton Wednesday and Thursday of this week. Several Grand Army men from Clarksburg attended and an interesting meeting is re ported. The Quest, the official organ of the Prohibition party, and which has been purchased by Capt. Frank Burt, will not be moved to Fairmont. A home has betn pur chased for it in Wheeling and I there it is to stay. Mrs. N. R. C. Morrow will occupy the editorial chair. A. G. Giffen's barn at Newlon, was totally destroyed by tire last Tuesday, loss about five hundred dollars. One of his la borers left his coat hanging in the barn. The coat contained over one hundred dollars in money and other valuables, which were burned. Mr. Giffen had just filled the barn with hay. John J. Cornwell. of Romney, editor of the Hampshire Review, has been appointed to*jk f?t job as "State Statistical' for West Virginia, for the Agricultural Department. This is a nice berth. E. M. Gilkeson, also of Romney, Hampshire county, is to be made Collector of Internal Revenue for the District of West Virginia. Congressman Wilson gets the credit of both these appoint ments. It is also understood that Hampshire county and the South Branch Valley are *x> get a half dozen appointments in the revenue service. The Democrats from the balance of the State will take due notice and govern themselves accordingly. Hamp shire county is strictly "in it."? State Journal. Mr. Thomas McCreery, editor of tho Buckhannon Banner, was in the city a few hours Wednes day. He was returning from Huntington where he was attend ing the funeral ol his brother, who was killed in the recont rail road accident near there. 1 wo murderers under sentence of death escaped from Sing Sing prison New York, last week. It has caused considerable excite ment all over that state. Charles Morris . and Henry Brinkor, of Ritchie county, had an altorcation over who should escort a girl homo from a box supper.

West Grafton is to havoa new postmaster. Mr. J. C.

Superintendent R. M. Sheats Tram Master U. B. Williams and Supt. A. T. Cline, of the tele graph, office, were in Baltimore this week assisting in arranging tho summer schedule for thoir road. In view of the expected heavy World's Fair trafic, it is probable that considerable change will be .mode in the run tiiiUf of passenger trains. Mrs. Hoke, wife of Hod. J. T. Hoke, Judge of that judicial dis trict, mot with a most; painful ac cident last Monday. Mrs. Hoke has been stopping with her hus band at tho Ward House since the Judge has been holding court here, and on Monday got in Mr, Luke Lewellen's carriage to which a pair of spirited horses were attached, to drive in com pany with Mr. Lewellen to the latter's home some two miles from Grafton. While descend ing a hill one of the horses prob ably in a spirit of playfulness kicired over the carriage pole. Mr. Lewellen at once reined in the team and held their heads toward tv fence corner. Mrs. Hoke, fearing a run off, jumped from the carriage aud in doing so sprained her ankle m & most painful manner. She was taken tq Mr. Lewellen's home and Dr. Harter called. The physician thinks that tho unfortunate lady will not be ab^fcKpalk for weeks and probable not for months. 1 lie injury was exceedingly painful. THE LATEST MAUKETS. Nitw Yohk, April 34, 1803.
