On iast Tuesday a case between
Robt. Liskey, of Rockingham and
Jonas Liskey,of this county,was tried.
Robt. Liskey won the case. $1,2">0.25
was involved.
Some few years ago Robt, loaned a
relative of his bv the name of Jonas
Liskev, sums of money from time to
time, taking a lien on farming im?
plements, horses, etc., and finally to
recover the same he was forced to sue.
He got judgment for the amount nam?
ed above, but when the sheriff went to
levy the execution Jonas Liskey's wife
claimed that the property was hers,
as she had a bill of sale conveying
the property to her.
The matter was taken into court
Tuesday for the first time on its merits.
The simple question was whether or
not that part of the conveyance wasjj
fraudulent in so far as it vitiated the
debt of Robert Liskey The jurv de?
cided in favor of Robt. Liskey who
was represented by Mr. John T.
Harris, of Harrisonburg, and Hon.
M. L. Walton, of Woodstock. Mrs.
Jonas Liskey was represented by

E. Hausentluck, of Shenandoah coun?
ty, was arrested here today on a war?
rant sworn out by John W. Rudolph,
of Toms Brook, that county, charging
him with kidnapping and abducting
his daughter, Mamie Rudolph, aged
19 years, for immoral purpose.
Hr? usenfluek, who is about 69 years
of age and who is well known in his
home county, was locked up at the
police station. When seen this after
noon Hausenfluck declared that he
was innocent, and that his whole at?
titude in the matter has simply been
that of a friend to the girl, who ap?
peared to him to be in great troubl e
because of her condition.
Hausenfluck declared the girl wanted
to leave home in order to reach Somer?
set, and that he reluctantly consented
to assist her. He said she had a
friend of the family drive her to Mt
Jackson, 20 miles from her home,
where he met her by appointment and
whence he brought her to Lynchburg
in order that the young man at Som
erset might come here to make her his
wife. Hausenfluck declares he left the
girl in a boarding house and returned
home. He expected the girl to meet
her friend, and when he left Lynchburg
he had no idea but she would be mar?
ried in a dav or two. He says he re?
turned to Toms Brook and reported
what had happened to Rudolph, and
that Rudolph expressed himself satis?
fied if his daughter had been married.
The escapade was aired at the time
in the papers of Shenandoah county
and much comment was made over
Hausenfluck's connection with the
case, but a week or two afterward
Rudolph came out in the paper at
Woodstock declaring that Hausenfluck
had explained the matter entirely to
his satisfaction and that there was
nothing more to the trouble.
Monday morning at the opening day
of the Circuit Court of Shenandoah
County, the accused says Rudolph
asked him to aid him in locating his
daughter and to try to bring about
the marriage. He again consented to
come to Lynchburg, and yesterday he
went over to Somerset in order to see
the man in the case there. Then he
came to Lynchburg on a late train
lost nij_rht. He did ?saot see Rudolph
ajjain until this morning, when he saw
him and the daughter at the Union
pasasuffar station. He was placed
under arrest there. The local au?
thorities here have been advised from
Woodstock that Sheriff Spiker will
probably reach here late tonight and
take the accused back to Woodstock
tomorrow morning. ?Bait. Sun.
Sheriff Spiker left Woodstock on
Thursday morning. He will probably
return to day, Friday.
