THE VIRGINIA ENTERPRISE VIRGINIA. MINN. W. E. HANNAFORD, Publisher. Mrs. Nation can now warn drinkers to beware of floats. A float in Fond du Lac took fire. When potatoes dropped they took the starch out of some would-be kings of the vegetable market. The news from Kwan Tien Nien, North Shan Ting, Giang Si and Ku Ja is disquieting to the vocables. The yachting experts are patriotically giving the Shamrock all of her speed be­ fore she meets the American defender. The latest steamer from Central Amer­ ica brings the news that conditions are normal in Salvador: a revolution is brew­ ing. Fort Atkinson sounds the latest grade crossing warning with a collision that has made a young woman a cripple for life. Newport's fining of William J. Vander bilt. Jr.. may lie taken as a warning that no "fast set" in automobiling will be tolerated. The manufacturers of laundry machin­ ery, who have organized a trust, calcu­ late that everything "will come out all right in the wash." The Kansas man wh...

Orp HE battle of Gettysburg was fought on July 1, 2 and 3, 1863. It was tlie greatest battle of the Oivil War, not only as regards the number of men engaged and tlie casual­ ties resulting, but in decisive charac­ ter. It is generally conceded that the Confederate cause reached high tide at Gettysburg, and from that point re­ ceded gradually until the final collapse. About 102,000 men were engaged in this battle (90,000 Federals and 70,000 Confederates), and the result was the turning point In the war. Gen. Lee OKORQK O. MEADli. Invaded Pennsylvania for the double purpose of carrying the war into North­ ern territory and to provision his army from the rich stores of the fertile coun­ ties of Pennsylvania. After the battle of Chancellorsville (May 2-3, 18(J3,) the Union and Confed­ erate armies maintained their positions on the Rappahannock near Fredericks­ burg until early in June, when Hooker, in command of the Army of the Poto­ mac, seeing indications of a movement on Lee's part, ...

But you can bet your bloomin' life what­ ever it may are. It's there fur dolu' bizness, an' it does it, too, fur sure, As all the neighborhood kin tell when Pa begins to snore!

-f* -m THE VIRGINIA ENTERPRISE VIRGINIA, MINN. W. E. HANNAFORD, Publisher. England's continued purchases prove that the American mule is as tough as South African army life. Boston sticks to her beans, even when they bring famine prices, as though the bean pot were the source of culture. Alabama's new constitution has been adopted, with the "nigger" looking on and wondering where he comes in. The sudden disappearance of a moun­ tain 500 feet high seems to show that "There's a hole in the bottom of Japan." Peary rumors from the far north are the easiest sensations to manufacture, as every man's guess is as good as that of his neighbor. A reported $90,000 jack-pot during the recent fast voyage of the DeutschJand is undeniably proof that there was racing in the cabin also. For a spinster,. Dr. Mary Walker did very well in winning the second prize at a hitching and unhitching contest at a farmers' fait in' New" fork.

r^r-i *. i* *. JUST THE SAME THING. They found, in bygone days, 'tis true, That Zola was a bit too "blue," At least, so tells tradition. To publish him was then a crime— It meant for those who did so "time Suppressing the edition. And yet one suffered not at all— If one could read the tongue of Gaul Instead of transposition. The modern taste—alas! the shame, Is open equally, to blame (Pray don't call this sedition), For to'the rescue comes a phrase (You kill a cat in many ways): So wise discretion finds the name— "A Problem Novel"—Just the same! —Punch. A Revelation in a Poster. All London woke suddenly one morn­ ing to a sense of beauty and of divine things. Shoeblacks and errand boys stowl agape before the boardings, and felt within them stirrings of ancient for­ gotten feelings—feelings untouched since the time when they had responded to the glory of some primeval sunset. The cab­ men and ombnibus drivers caught glimpses of that pale witchery at every corner, and went about a tra...

flf SS^ gg & if a 1 I & SAMPSON O understand correctly the origin of the dispute between Admiral Sampson and Admiral Schley it is absolutely necessary that the environ­ ment of the two men prior to the Span­ ish-American war and their physical and mental characteristics should be well un­ derstood. The declaration of war with Spain did not come until April 25, but prior to that time the Navy Department assembled two squadrons for active naval duty— one called then the Key West squadron, having for its purpose the blockading of Havana, and the other a flying squadron. The first was commanded by Sampson and the second by Schley. Neither squad­ ron entered upon active duty until after the declaration of war, nor in reality un­ til after May 1, when Dewey's victory far east was known. On May 2 the Key West squadron sailed for Cuba un­ der command of Rear Admiral Sampson. Following this was the naval fighting at Cardenas, the bombardment of San Juan by Sampson. On May 13 the Navy...

frWTn8» 1 if 1 *, f-r V" Athletic Women in Days of Old. Some searcher after curious facts has discovered that athletic women are by 110 means a product of the Nineteenth cen­ tury, as is generally believed. They flourished in the days of sal volatile, hoops, patches and snuff, in the days •when. George II.'was King. Ladies of the court took part in races arranged for them at the regular meetings, so that there were lady jockeys as well as gentle­ men jockeys, and once a series of foot races for ladies in Hyde Park was or­ ganized. The first one was run anud great enthusiasm of the populace, and the betting was high. Then stepped in some cross-grained old fellow who per­ suaded the government that such races were unseemly, and they came to a sud­ den end, much to the regret of the people of London.—New York Commercial Ad­ vertiser. A Narrow Escape. Bath, N. Y., Sept. 16.—There is now at the Soldiers' and Sailors' Home here an old soldier who has been nearer death than anyone who has ...

«BW"" tf' "Is the whisker doomed?" is now one of the questions of the hour. Apparently, while there has been but little comment on the subject, the moustache and the beard are rapidly going out of style. The beard went into a decline some years ago. but it is only within the last year or two that the ban has fallen on the moustache and its doom plainly sealed. Few society men wear the moustache nowadays, and only once in a great while can one be dis­ covered brave enough to sport a beard. Whiskers have been the target for the comic artist and the stage comedians for many years. Every man aspiring to be known as a wit or any especially clever young person has always considered it the height of merriment to gently pull the tip of a friend's beard and make a noise like the sighing of a summer wind. Hoards have been called "wind teasers," "lilacs," "weeping willows," "little bunch of spinach,'' and a hundred other thing9 until the man who wore a beard was seaily to commit murder when th...
