I THE VIRGINIA ENTERPRISE VIRGINIA, MINN. W. E. HANNAFORD, Publisher. Pat Crowe has become so used to stay­ ing away that even if he were to fall sick he would probably take "absent treat­ ment" rather than return to Omaha. The fishermen at Faraman, France, who twice carried a life-line to the stranded steamer Russie are heroes in oilskins who ought to be generously re­ warded by the French people. The rumor that Sir Thomas Lipton is sending spies to the United States to discover the lines of the America cup de­ fense yachts is as absurd as the secrecy which is maintained by the builders of international racers, both in England and America. According to the modern view of crime, it required less courage for Teller Alvord to plead guilty to the charge of stealing $700,000 than it does to acknowledge th1 theft of a few dollars. Alvord will probably feel like a Napoleon among the smaller rogues in Sing Sing. The reported famine in China shows where the Celestials would be weak in the e...

1 «i K. I fw THIS COMING OUT PARTY. Society is all astir. and rightly so, no doubt, Since two sweet buds of womanhood next week are ''coming out." The Misses Schuyler and Van Brunt make their debut at Brown's, With timid, fluttering hearts, no doubt, and lovely Paris gowns. The invitations have been mailed—one found Its way to nic— "To be presented ." Well, by Jove! how very strange 'twill be! My tongue will frame the names they knew in girlhood's sweet estate, For Margaret was Maggie then and Katli erine was Kate! No doubt Mies Kntherine Van Brunt pas sesses beauty rare The social set will praise her gown—I'll only see her hair. And Margaret Schuylcr will, I hoar, so­ ciety surprise With wealth of gems magnificent—I'll only see her eyes. My playmates both in years a gone, to Mag­ gie's eyes I'd look For schoolgirl sympathy—Kate's curls, as black as any rook. I used to star with daisies in the long ago. All, Fate? But Margaret was Maggie then and Kath erine was Kate. Their frown? wi...

MRS. ROOSEVELT IN SOCIETY. She Will Occupy a Leading Position at Washington Functions. Since the death of Vice President Ho bart the late Mrs. William P. Frye of Maine has enjoyed the houorary title of "the second lady of the land," by vir­ tue of her husband's position as Presi­ dent of the Senate. She every way worthy of a place among the foremost of her sex and her untimely death a few weeks ago caused sincere sorrow. Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt, wife of the Vice President, will assume the dignity. Virtually she will be the lead­ er at all official social functions, for the precarious health of Mrs. McKinley renders her presence, except on rare oc­ casions, impossible. Many people have imbibed the idea that Mrs. Roosevelt is a timid, retiring woman, with little interest in anything except household duties. Some have even suspected the Governor of being something of a do­ mestic tyrant. Nothing further from the truth could be imagined. Mrs. Roosevelt is almost as decided a char­ acter...

"*3i "fe New Taxes in France. Frenchmen, and Parisians in particu­ lar, are much concerned in the sweeping changes in taxation which have marked the birth of the* new century, says a Paris correspondent. While no octroi tax will in future be imposed on wine, beer, perry and cider and such like beverages, yet those who drink alcoholic liquors will have to pay more for them—Frenchmen for their absinthe and brandy and the Englishmen in France foo their whisky the latter drink has been increased to the extent of 5d a bottle. No octroi tax will be paid on non-in­ toxicating beverages entering Arbris. a small city in the department of Jura, but any citizen importing a piano must pay 8s. It seems that the unmusical inhab­ itants have demanded the change. —The River Jordan lias its origin in one of the largest springs in the world. 25,000 Trial Packages FREE!

,1#: W-- TBE VIRGINIA ENTERPRISE VIRGINIA. MINN. W. E. HANNAFORD, Publisher. Mrs. Nation is careering amid broken saloon crockery like a typical case of the "jim-jams." The registered lobbyist for the barbers' license bill should certainly be a man with a clean antiseptic shave. The bear showed his teeth to the vice president elcct, when the vice-president­ elect showed his teeth to the bear. From the rate at which Mrs. Carrie Nation is smashing mirrors it is safo to assume she is not much as to looks. "Six days shalt thou labor" has a new meaning to the legislators who find trav­ eling to and from their homes an ex­ pensive luxury. The multiplying reports as to the whereabouts of the chief Omaha kidnap­ er may eventually convince the credulous that all Crowes are alike. The oil excitement at Beaumont, Tex­ as, has plenty of elbow room and inci­ dentally Texas has any amount of real estate to sel' to oil-crazy speculators.

V' TIE V1B6IH1A ENTERPRISE VIRGINIA. MINN. W. E. HANNAFORD, Publisher. While the police are in doubt as what hit Wong Dong, the Chinaman is satis­ fied that something is Dong Wong. Chief Crazy Snake can claim that he is not treated as leniently as Mrs Nation, but Oklahoma isn't Kansas. The British troopers who were captured at Slijpkujp may by lifelong practice be able to tell their grandchildren of the event. The obscure farmer near Ashland who has fallen heir to $3,000,000 will be ob­ scure no longer everybody will want to know him. The statement that the Kaiser is sav­ ing money for his children will arouse fellow feeling among thousands of Amer­ icans who are in the same honorable business. The Chicago horse-breeder who de­ clares that blondes are the result of a disease due to a microbe is probably fully prepared to give all Afro-Americans clear bills of health. The Nations which are engaged in the Kansas war might be induced to direct their smashing enthusiasm in the direc­ ti...

I I" I A Substitute for Benzine. For years a substitute for benzine has been in demand. The objectional points About benzine are its high inflammabil­ ity and volatility, the danger of poison­ ing the atmosphere, etc. This was one of the chief topics of discussion at last year's chemical congress at Hanover, and this fall the subject came up once more at the meeting at Cassel, when a premium of about $250 was offered for an effectual substitute for benzine, or for means of rendering it less dangerous. Here is a good chance for American jremus.—Consular report from Germany. Chronic Nasal Catarrh poisons every breath that is drawn into the lungs. There is* procurable from any druggist the remedy for its cure. A small quan­ tity of Ely's Cream Balm placed into the nostrils spreads over an inflamed and angry surface, relieves immediately the painful inflammation, cleanses, heals and cures. Drying inhalants, i'uincs, smokes and snuffs simply develop dry catarrh they dry up the secretions...

New Disease is Threatened. Are Londoners to live on tubes? Thai is to say. is our great metropolis to hav a more substantial foundation than un­ derground railways of one kind or an­ other? Where are people, Avho do nol care to vibrato, going to find peace? Al­ ready those who live over the existing electric railway under Oxford street fine that their house rooms are in a state ol constant oscillation, not unlike that pro­ duced by a feeble earthquake, and as the process of extension proceeds ther "will be few thoroughfares of any im­ portance which are not subject to the tremor—a malady that turns out to be nerve irritant few people can endure. The worst of the outlook is that it is im­ possible to anticipate the direction which new lines will follow, so that a house taken upon a long lease may become sub­ ject to tube vibration. The effect of this new terror is sure to tell upon the nerves of Londoners, and some description of tube affection will bp among the maladies of the futur...
