THE VIRGINIA ENTERPRISE VIRGINIA. MINN. W. E. HANNAFORD, Publisher. From Buffalo Bill to automobile repre­ sents a wide reach, but American con temporaneous civilization spans it. The pulpit pessimism which was form­ erly directed against the bicycle is now expending itself upon the subject of golf. Train robbery will receive an impetus if the rascals who held up the Great Northern train are permitted to escape. A boomerang revolver is an urgently desired invention, for use by men who are murderously inclined toward sweet­ hearts and wives. In marrying a Cuban millionaire's daughter. Count Boni de Castellane's brother has successfully im'itated Boni's international coup d'etat. There will be two full moons this mouth, but if anyone thinks he sees both of them at once, he will do well to ab­ stain from calling for another beer. In constructing steam-heated side­ walks, the Wisconsin University of Chi­ cago will convince the world that it has money enough to heat "all outdoors." From ...

ft* t- "THE VIRGINIA ENTERPRISE VIRGINIA. MINN. W. E. HANNAFORD, Publisher Graham's object in shooting Niagara is to obtain recognition as a big gun. Has it occurred to anybody to remark that the move heats there are in a sum­ mer, the worse it is for the race? B.v the way, the title of King Edward, which Chamberlain proposes to change, is not his title to the English throne. They look like eiders, and it is to be hoped that experience has taught them not to behave in future like the Young ers of the past.

rife'*'- •X *v a?,: TRIAL OF EARL RUSSELL. Antiquated Procedure Revived in Bigamy Case. JUDGED BY HIS PEERS. Present Case Recalls the Celebrated Trial of Viscount Stafford for Treason. The trial of Earl Russell by the peers of England, on a charge of bigamy, is one of a very few cases which Have come before that august tribunal in the last hundred years. It is the right of every British per accused of a felony to demand that judgment be passed upon him by the House of Lords, and in con­ sequence tin* branch of Parliament, re­ solved into a court, has tried some of the most famous cases in the annals of Eug Jund. The procedure of the peers is anti­ quated. It is likewise supremely solemn and undoubtedly tedious. Except in a few details tin* customs and usages at­ taching to trial by the lords lias not changed in centuries, and the ancient records are full of picturesque accounts that give some notion of what may be ex­ pected when Earl Russell is called to the bar.

The United States raises about 550, 000,000' bushels of wheat annually, which is harvested in the Pacific coast States in June, in the Middle and New England States in July, and in Central and Northern Minnesota and the Da kotas in August. About one-fifth of our wheat is exported, and as *a consider­ able portion of the crop is grown in the Middle and Western States, much of it has to be moved either by rail or water to the great market centers. It is impossible in the limits of a short arti­ cle to trace the progress of wheat from the farm to the elevators, thence to its destination in the flouring mill and to its fin...

THE VIRGINIA ENTERPRISE VIRGINIA. MINN. W. E. HANNAFORD, Publisher. Wisconsin pearls have taken their proper place among those of great price. As was expected, the rush of Keeley claims against the state is suggestive of an Oklahoma land boom. —Jim Kic-kanosway has been elected chief of the Chippewa-Ottawa band of Indians on Walpole island. Tbe fight against mosquitoes in New Jersey will succeed if the state can b? given a daily shower bath with pe­ troleum. Mrs. Nation has been sentenced to im­ prisonment in jail for thirty days, and there is no appeal—not even with a hatchet. The departure from Norway of the Baldwin-Ziegler Arctic expedition fur­ nishes another reason for a relief expe­ dition in 1902. Vanderbilt's automobile, which can "scratch gravel" at the rate of seventy miles an hour, is fast enough to have a track of its own. Lipton has faith in his new Shamrock, and that is sufficient. There would be BO glory in beating a yacht that lacked the faith of even her owner. The ...

Telephone companies are not able to keep up with the demand for telephones by farmers. They would make despe­ rate efforts to do so if they could get the material, but all factories are be­ hind the orders.. The companies are nursing this rural desire for telephones. They wish the farmer's trade. It is said that the necessity of meet­ ing this demand is mainly responsible for the recent call for another $5,000, 000 on the stockholders of the Central Union Telephone Company by John I. Sabin, the new President. In his circu­ lar letter to the stockholders he said: "There is no use crying over spilled milk or abusing one another for things uot accomplished. The people of Illi­ nois, Indiana, Ohio and Iowa want tel­ ephone service. Are you giving it with fewer than 70,000 stations? When you have 300,000 exchange stations then you will have a good start, not before. You are not satisfying the public because your system does not reach far enough.

Mother put oil her Sunday best, Her lilac wedding gown, Ami white-straw bonnet neatly tied With strings of faded brown We .woke before the roosters crowed And started In the dew To see the boat race, for our Jim W ras captain of the crew. He took it in his curly head To want a college course: I parted with the pasture lot And sold the sorrel horse. We sent him every dollar saved, And made a seedy pair In garments that had long outlived Their days of useful wear. The surging throng closed up in front, We could not see our son. But soon a mighty cheer went up And told us Jim had won. The crowd took up the college yell And sent it to the skies. And college colors everywhere Shook out their brilliant dyes. He stepped ashore, looked up and saw His mother's wrinkled face. And hurried to her through the ranks Of broadcloth, silk and lace. He never gave a single glance Toward the pretty girls. Ert kissed her on the withered lips, And kissed her silver curls...
