A SUNSET ON THE FARM. Down behind the western hill the red sun sinks to rest. All the world is weary,"and I am weary, too. The partridge seeks its covert, and the redbird seeks its nest, 1 And I am coming from the fields, dear heart, to home and you. Home when the daylight is waning Home, when my toiling is done Ah! down by the gate, sweet* watch­ ing eyes wait My coming at setting of sun. The sheep from off the hillside haste to the shepherd's fold, For death lurks in the mountains and darkness comes apace. The fleeing sun looks backward and turns the sky to gold, Then folds the mantle of the night across its crimson face. Home when the daylight is waning Home, when my toiling is done Ah! down by the gate, sweet, watch­ ing eyes wait My coming at setting of sun. Lay aside the hoe and spade, and put the sickle by All the world is weary, and I am weary, too. Gently fades the rosy light from out the western sky, And I am coming from the fields, dear heart, to home and you. Home when t...

PPv'*&tm mmm§ WHAT WE HEAR FROM ASSINI BOIA, WESTERN CANADA. "Don^t Think of Comingi bnt Cone*" To the Editor—The above la the em­ phatic manner in which a friend In Yorkton writes to a friend near St. Paul, Minnesota, and it i». pretty near­ ly right, too, when the advantage* that AVestern Canada offers to those seek­ ing homes are considered. The Assini boia district is one of the best. The writer from whose letter we quote goes on to say: "John, if you miss this chance you are foolish, for you can get out cheaper when there are so many coming, and I would not tell you to come if I thought you could not do well, and if you don't come in the spring you will Jiave to go away back, for you do not want to tliink that there is no one living out here but lis. I saw nicer buildings out here than I ever saw before, and if the country was no good what would they want them for? John, if you sold ev­ erything you have and came out here you would be worth more than ever you were before, a...

7 r- s- I THE VIRGINIA ENTERPRISE VIRGINIA. MINN. W. E. tiANNAFORD, Publisher. Now that there is a shirt and collar trust, collars may be higher than ever. England's proposed Academy of Let­ ters will be a failure unless she gets some great figures in it. Now that Mrs. Dowie has been or­ dained, it is safe to say that she is as good a man as her husband. A Texas editor recently wrote to one of his correspondents. "Oil has taken the place of politics down here." Oil is pretty slippery, too. Premier Laurier says that the Alaskan boundary is unsettled. No doubt it will be unsettled if Canadian political strat­ egists can effect that result. Pennsylvania has enacted a law estab­ lishing courts for juvenile offenders. Two years ho nee Wisconsin will have another hance to adopt this reform. The commencement season will soon be under way, and will fully demonstrate :hat this great and glorious country's gushers are not confined to Texas. The new Chicago city directory will claim an increas...

v'J One'rammer's evening by the sea My heart's Ideal walked on with me, And from a bending briar vine Broke off this blossom—true love's sigtr— Some twenty Mays ago. Sweet were the fields in fading light, With roses closing for the night. And sweet her promise made to me, That summer evening by the,sea. Some twenty Mays ago. Ah. well I go alone my way. Content yet single, getting gray: The light of love for me died down: The blood-red rose has faded brown. Since twenty Mays ago.- "And did she die?" Ah. no: not she She married Jones and Jilted me She's loud and fat. of fiery vim. And-Jones—poor dojr—I pity him. He leads a life, you know. —Baltimore World. IN GAY NEW YORK.

i- a I _Jv ft THE VIRGINIA ENTERPRISE VIRGINIA, MINN. W. t. HANNAFORD, Publisher. Herron was red when he was in the church. Now he is read out of the church. The most astonishing thing about that Vassar girl's jump of 13 feet l1/* inches is that there wasn't a mouse in sight. Abbe Moreanx's theory as to the sun spots is more worthy of consideration than the average rumor as to the prob­ able ending of the Boer war. Andrew Carnegie ought to endow a chair in some American university to in­ struct American youth in the Scotch vir­ tue of living within one's ncome. No, the poor fellow killed by leaping from Brooklyn bridge was not thinking of a literary career he was qualifying himself for the lecture platform. Better evidence than the statements of men hired to lind fault with it will be required to convince Minnesota people that their election law is a failure.

K..' W.. III Read in round figures, says the Trib­ une, 200 through passenger trains come into the six passenger stations of Chi­ cago every day, leaving 40,000 strangers in the city. Then 200 more trains are made up under the miles of train sheds and 40,000 more strangers are whirled out of the smoke and din and grime that mark these great centers of in­ gress and egress. These figures are from the estimates of the station mas­ ter.- in the six passenger stations of Chicago. As to stations trains aud train move­ ments in Chicago, these figures are small compared with the suburban business. In the Union station alone 200 suburban trains arrive and depart every day, carrying 20,000 passengers. Thirty-three thousand five hundred persons go in and out of this station every tweury-four hours. l»ut that 40,000 strangers come iuto Chicago every day by those railroad lines is a significant group of figures. To viiese may be added the lake ex­ cursionists between March and Novem­ ber. These...

SPINNING WHEEL. DER BEAXUTTS MANN. Who is this man of mighty voice Who bids all humankind rejoice— Who visits bleachers and grandstand With roasted rapture in his hand? "Peanuts: .Fr-r-raish peanuts!" Who, when the umpire shouts: '"Play balJ!" Hears with disdain the feeble call, Aad whose own stentor-modeled lungs Drown out the noise of many tongue "Peanuts! Fr-r-raish peanuts!" Who stirs the circumambient air And moves his optics here and .there To find the man who yells: "Here, boy, Give me one sack of roasted Joy!" "Peanuts! Fr-r-ralsh peanuts!" Who hastens onward with his wares, While every individual glares Who lacks the necessary price: Who cuts a mighty slab of ice? "Peanuts! Fr-r-raish peanuts!"
