THE VIRGINIA ENTERPRISE VIRGINIA, MINN. W. E. HANNAFORD, Publisher. Judge Lynch of Indiana is an advocate of cremation as well as hanging. Gen. Gomez is showing his fellow citir zens in Cuba that he has a head for statesmanship as well as for fighting. This winter's cold waves seem to be bent on reaching the Northerners who are dodging them at the winter resorts of the South. It is said that in some localities people cumber the ground, but in the. vicinity of the pickle factories in Wisconsin they actually cucumber it. The Louisiana timber thieves who helped themselves to millions of feet of logs owned by Northern lumbermen have played an old game that lirst made its appearance in the pine woods of this section of the country. Had Admiral Sampson laid less stress upon the need of "refinement," in his let­ ter regarding the proposed promotion of warrant officers, and called attention to the need of especial fitness for important diplomatic duties, he would have touched upon the main ...

Ah, well for my neighbor next door, That she s'ngs at her work all day! For the "war with China" has ceased for her. Now her hired girl Is away. And our politicians say That our Chinese help "must go," For there's many a slip 'twixt sink and shelf As my empty cupboards show. Break, break, break! Yet that girl is singing in glee!

fe :v K, 71 THE VIRGINIA ENTERPRISE VIRGINIA, MINN. W. E. HANNAFORD, Publisher. The dressmakers of America have or­ ganized a protective association. Skirts may soon be high enough to keep them out of the dirt. The French physician's reported dis­ covery that appendicitis is due to tilt eating of meat won't force the Esquimau to change his diet. When royalty gets it "in the jaw" there is far more excitement than can be accounted for by those who are U9ed to the world's hard knocks. If the idea of showing Niagara Falls its own light could be given general application what a shaking of hidden skeletons there would be. The Havanese will find that baseball is far more exciting than bull fights, if they permit the partisans of the bleach­ ers to give advice to the umpire. The Duisburg stationmaster who was degraded for hooting at King Edward might have been appropriately trans­ ferred to his new post on an owl car. Europe's reported red Tain and brown and yellow snow suggests a rustiness...

INCE the invention of the rail way locomotive, since the day when the first train went shriek­ ing over the iron rails to the intense consternation of the natives there has always existed the greatest popular in­ terest in fast runs. Time and again records have been made only to be smashed until it would be difficult to pick out a run and make the uncondi­ tional statement that it was the great­ est run ever made by a railroad train. A disagreement sometimes arises even as to what is a railroad train, for some great examples of speed are to credit locomotives to which were attached single coaches, and some authorities do cline to admit that such combinations are trains. Americans and Englishmen have always been and probably always will be the leaders of the world in all matters pertaining to railways and the speed of trains. Between the two coun­ tries there has always existed more or loss rivalry over the speed accomplish­ ments of their respective locomotives, and the rivalry will...

r- If ,' k:v CHAT ACfiOSS OCEAN. AN ITALIAN ELECTRICIAN'S WON­ DERFUL INVENTION. Will Make It Possible for Us to Have Conversation with Our Kin Beyond the Sea Without the Medium of Cables* Great things are promised for tlie new century by G. Marconi, the authqr of wireless telegraphy, says the New York Press. Before the first Christmas in the twentieth century he will, he de­ clares, have England and America on speaking terms without the aid of sub­ marine cables. One big pole erected at Southampton and another at Montauk Point will, he says, be all that is need­ ed. The cables which now connect Eu­ rope with America will, if Marconi ful­ fills his promise, become as obsolete as the stage coach became when the rail­ road came in. The ootimistic electri­ cs MARCONI. cian is confident that he can establish telegraphic communication between the eastern and western worlds by his system at a hundred-thousandth part of the cost of laying a cable and main­ taining it. Marconi says he has d...

ife/ &•• •. SPINNING WHEEL. "Never cross-question an Irishman from the old sod," advises one of the foremost railroad attorneys of the age. "Even if he does not think of an answer he will stumble into some bull that will demoralize the court and jury* and when­ ever a witness tickles a jury his testi­ mony gains vastly in its influence. "Yes, I'm speaking from experience. The only witness who ever made me throw up my hands and leave the court­ room was a green Irishman. A section hand had been killed by an express train and his widow was suing for damages. I had a good case, but made the mistake of trying to turn the main witness inside out. "In his quaint way he had given a graphic description of the fatality, occa­ sionally shedding tears and calling on the saints. Among other things he swore positively that the locomotive •whistle was not sounded until after the •whole train had passed over his departed friend. Then I thought I had him. 'See here, McGinnis,' said I, 'you ad­ ...

THE VIRGINIA ENTERPRISE VIRGINIA, MINN. W. E. HANNAFORD, Publisher. It is better for a city to be Carnegied than to be Carrienatioqed. It has been demonstrated that De Rodays can't hit a calf at twenty-five paces. It may be that the dancing at Law­ rence University would cease if the pro­ hibition were removed. The allegation that President Diaz is insane is probably the Mexican imitation of an American campaign lie. Now that King Edward is wheeling again, the fashionable status of the bicycle is likely to be restored. From trying vainly to keep their heads above water, some of the gold hunters in the Klondike have taken to submarine Mrs. Nation's scoring of women who try to display beauty of form may fore­ shadow a crusade against the corset counter. The insult to the Count de Castellane has been drowned in blood. There was not a great deal of blood, but it was not a large insult. If the Russo-British differences lead to war, Dewet can secure a star engage­ ment in Asia at the clos...

•#HE GIRL "WITH THE KANGAROO WALK. A wheel quite essential Is loose in her head And throws the whole works out of gear. You'd think from her limp, ridiculous tread Her brain was decidedly l*qufier." She looks, if you'll pardon a classical term, A woozy, goo-goolsh young gawk, As onward she moves with a slide and a squirm, The girl with the kangaroo walk. She travels the pave in mechanical way, With never a syuipton of grace A monkey would gaze in affright and turn gray And wonder who built her that face. Her eyes, with^the look of afi invalid ca'.f, Would stop the career of a clock. Her figure would cause a dried mummy to laugh, The girl with the kangaroo walk. All sensible women look on with disgust And want to secede ironi-the sex, And men! Well, they laugh till tliey fear they will bust The collar band circling their necks. Yet. as if unconscious sne Is such a fright, She pegs along block after block, And thinks that her style Is away out of sight. The girl with the kangaroo walk...
