fminsttiH Enterprise. ACCOM AC COURT-HOUSE, YA.: SATURDAY, : : MAY 10, 1884 - _ Entered at the Post office at Accomac C. H.. Va., as second-class matter. The mills of the gods grind slow ly but very surely. On Monday the House by a vote of 140 to 81 seated O'Ferrell. Of course it was impossible for the irrepressible John S. Wise to quiet. At the earliest moment he arose and in his usual rantipole style launched into soaring abuse of the Democrats. He denounced the Democrats for inconsistency. He declared that Although he knew his own seat was in jeopardy, he defied them. It was a fitting time, lie said, for Virginia Bourbons to come with hands smeared with the blood of murdered negroes, with ballots strangled and stolen, and every law violated. It was a tirade well calculated to show that he who had been, as he once boasted, "nurtured on Democratic - pap," had thriven immensely on his nejw Republican milk. He took afling at Lowry, of Indiana, who retorted that if he (Wise) sought a ...

The failure of Grant and Ward, of New York, hits develojied iuto enormous proportions. It will reach it is said the total of nearly $10,000,000. Affecting others largely, besides the ruin of many other confiding friends, it has involved the rum of the Marine National Bank of New York, and the Northwestern Car Co., of Minnesota of which Sabin, chairman of the Republican National Committee, is president.

ftand and Head. It lias been die fashion to separate hand-work from head-work, as if the two were incompatible. One was for laborers and mechanics, the other for professional and liter ary people, one was for the poor, the other for the rich. But we are gradually learning; that their harmonious union is the only means of the perfection of either, llusk'in says truly: "We want one man to be always thinking, and another to be always working, ami we call one a gentleman and the other an operator; whereas the workman ought often be thinking and the thinker to be working, and both should be gentlemen in the best sense. The mass of society is made up of mor bid thinkers and miserable workers. 11 is only by labor (hat thought can be made happy, and the two caiyiot be separated with impunity." Go Slow at First. Learn to walk, young man, before you try to prance. Don't hunger and thirst for a boudoir car while you are junior cleik and have to sweep out the store and sleep under the counter. ...

Oddities of Genius. Some amusing features from the lives of celebrated men have been brought together by a German writer. Auber wrote on horseback; it was not possible for him to write in any other place than in Paris, however beautiful another residence might be, and however many other attractions it might offer. Clarke composed the best when he lay with his clothes 011 in bed, and showed as great antipathy to all nature as love to his cats. The same antipathy to all beauty is charged to Donizetti, who always slept when lie vent 011 a journey, when lie should have given his attention to die romantic scenery of Switzerland and Italy. Sarti could only become inspired in a room without furniture, and which was dimly lighted. Stontini could only compose 111 the dark, and Meyer beer composed best during violent thunder storms, under the root of his house. Salieri gained his inspiration while he walked quickly through the streets tilled with a liu man throng, meantime eating a great quan...

Native Home of the Potato. The impression is very general that the only home of the potato is in South America. This is an error, and arose 110 doubt from the historic fact that it was first brought to the notice of civilized men from that country. No doubt it was the cultivated tnber that Raleigh took from there to Europe, and I lack evidence to prove that it was ever found there in its wild state. Authors seem to have taken little interest in the inquiry as to where its native home is, but I have abundant evidence to prove that it grew wild high up in the Northern torn perate zones. More than thirty years ago, Mr. Forsyth, of St. Louis, who had been for several years a hunter and trapper in the liocky Mountains, told me that he once camped in a sheltered valley in the mountains, a considerable distance north of the line of New Mexico, and that he soon discovered that his camp was in the midst of a con siderable field of vines, which he readily recognized as those of the potato and...

Our people have in an eminent degree the interest of the oyster question at heart. It is one of the sources of wealth to us, many of our citizens being wholly engaged in it, both as laborers and capitalists.

As only §30,000 (and §4."),000 more if collected,)., to build, equip and run the fleet, and three more sloops are to be provided, we cannot see how the Board expects to carry out the intention of this law, viz: to enforce it, if so much money is to be uselessly expended in this way.

, Moklrtg: a Queen. Bees do not, usually want more than one queen. In fact, they will not have more than one unless the swarm has grown so large as to crowd the hive and they are going to found a colony, or "swarm," as it is called; in which case each family will need a sovereign. As soon as it is clear to the wiseacres that it will be necessary to send oft" a swarm, the bees go to work to make a queen. A worker maggot, or if 1 here happens to be none in the hive, a worker egg, is selected near the edge of the comb. Two cells next door to the one in which this maggot is, are cleared out, and the dividing walls are cut down, so that three ordinary cells are turned into one. The food which* the worker worm has been feeding on is removed, and the little creature is fSipplied with anew kind Of food —a royal jelly. Change of food, a larger room and a different, position —the queen's cell hangs down instead of being horizontal—these three changes of treatment turn the bee that is developi...
