Do Nut Change "Culpeper Court House" Tho United States Government, says the New York Sun, is doing what it can by precept and example to bring order out of the chaos of geographical names in this country. One source of confusion iu tbe South is tbe not uncommon custom of giving a county seat two names. One may be anything, the other is usually the name of tho county, with C. H., (or Court Honse. attached. It grew up, doubtless, iu times when the county »eat consisted solely of the Court House. The United State» Government seess to drop the initials C. H and to adopt one or the other name alone ia tbe cases of »pch county seats. It would be a pity, however, to alter in any way the historic Culpeper Court House. The Weather. In the Middle Plates and New England to day slightly milder, cloudy weather will pre vail. with brisk and strong northerly to Mêterly winde, attended by snow, which L likely to become heavy in this section and followed by dangerous gales on tbe coasts, extending from Norfolk to Boston« aa the southern cyclone advances northward. ^ On Tuesday, in both of these sections« cloudy to partly cloudy and slightly warmer weather will probably prevail, preceded on and near the coast by snow and dangerous gales, and probably followed by clearing and weather. New York Herald Weather Forecast*.—The important storm centre moving from the eastern side of the Gulf of Mexico yestenlay morning toward the CaroMnas. attended by heavy rain and snow, will continue Its north erly advance to this section to-day, causing snow and dangerous.nnrtheasterly winds from Virginia to-Massachnsetts Heavy snow ia likely to prevail with severe gates on the coasts from Hatteras northward to Portland, Me.
