Jamestown, Va., Sept. 25.
Correspondence of the Enterprise.
They air havin' sich a row here
az ter who will be the soshal boss
ov the Exposition that I am plum
put out. Mr. Jim Barr thinks he
orter be soshal boss and be licensed
ter wear biled shirts an' a high silk
hat an' git his shoes shined every
20 minits. Mr. Tucker thinks he
orter be the soshal lion an' hev folks
saloot when he cuius erlong with
his hair done up in kurl papers, a
wearin' ov diamonts that shine like
an elecktrick headlite on a railrode
locomotive. If they don't quit
ranglin', I am goin ter turn Bob
loose an' tell him ter kick the stuffin
out ov the whole lot. Bob hez et
baled hay till he won't mind hevin'
a little fun erlong the kickin' line.
In fact, Bob iz a famus kicker, with
a reckord az long az frum here ter
I see by the papers that Judge
Clark hez sprung a big sensashun
down in North Carolina by declarin'
that the Supreme Court ov the
United States iz onconstitutional.- 'He
must hev bin down street a talkin'
with Jodeseevus Daniels before he
got up that. Hit iz terrible the way
they air jist findin' out things. An'
I wuz jist gittin' ready ter go ter
Washington an' cheer up the boys in
the Supreme Court, awlso them a
holdin other jobs, a little bit. I
reckon now they will haul the Su
preme Court ov the U. S. down ter
Raleigh an' try them fer runnin' a
fake game on the country fer awl
these years. Apt az anyway they
will find that the President's offls
iz onconstitushunal an' will hev him
before the Corperashun Commis
shun fer tresspassin' in the White
House. An' I wuz jist goin'. ter pay
him a visit. I hope Judge Clark
won't find ou t that the United States
Senate is onconstitushunal, fer that
might cause a giddy feelin' in hiz
head. The U. S,. Senate looks gude
ter Judge Clark, even if hit iz nearly
three hundred miles off.
I see that my friend Leotenant
Hobson, ov the Navy, iz still pre
dictin' war an' az gude az says that
if the United States don't go ahead
an lick Japan heswill do hit himself.
Because Hobson wuz able ter knock
a hole in the bottum ov a boat an
sink hit in a narrer channel off the
coast of Cuba an' sorter bother the
Spanish fleet erbout cumin' out ov
the harbor at Santyagoe, he thinks
that he iz the whole pertater. I could
hev done everything he did an' could
hev lay down an' took a nap rite
erway, fer he wuzzent in any danger.
Hit wuz just a little hot air per
But Hobson iz jist akin ter git
the United States ter lick Japan. An'
that iz one thing I wanter talk over
with the President an' the other big
Ikes in Washington; If nothin' else
will do I am 'goin' -ter. tell Mr. Roose
velt ter hev the fellers in the' navy
yard mold sum Harveyized steel into
1 6-Inch armer plate an' cover Hob
son witji hit, make him into a little
boat, covered with steel, fit him up
with a gas engine and start him
across the Paciffick ocean an' let Hob
son thrash Japan till he gets tired,
an' tell him not ter cum back az long
az he can find a Japanese soldier or
sailor that won't git down on his
knees an' beg fer his life. Then I'll
git President Roosevelt ter ask
Judge Walter Clark ter issue a
procklermashun ter the Japanese an'
tell them that they air now licked
an' that the whole business iz on
constitushunal an' void, an' that they
must never go ter war with Looten
ant Hobson ergin without an opinion
frum the North Carolina Supreme
Court. Az ever,

more, who is one among the able

COURT 1 X SESSION.
A Growing Concern.
The Carolina Woodworkers Com
pany, on West Morgan street, will in
crease the capital stock of the com
pany and enlarge the plant. The
increase in capital is necessary in
order to keep a larger stock on hand,
as it manufactures show cases and
other articles which require expen
sive stock such as oak lumber, ex
pensive glass and other costly ma
terial. They also do an extensive
work in the way of repairing.
The company has been in business
more than; five years and is well
managed, hence it should be regard
ed as a good company in -which to
invest,. Mr. Stark Batchelor and Mr.
W. P. Boyd are the managers and
they employ nothing but good mechanics.

Josephus and Consistency.
The News and Observer has had a
great deal to say about Judge
Pritchard going to Raleigh to hear a
petition for writ of habeas corpus in
the case of Green, who was indicted
as one of the agents of the Southern
Railway Company. We all know that
this paper is noted for its consistency
in regard to such matters, and there
fore we -assume that its editor has
forgotten the time when Judge
Pritchard went all the way from
Washington City to Raleigh to pre
vent the editor of that paper from
being confined in jail on a charge of
It was all right for Judge Pritch
ard to go all the way from Washing
ton to Raleigh to hear a writ of
habeas corpus sued out by the editor
of the News and Observer, but ac
cording to that paper it is all wrong
now for Judge Pritchard to go to
go to Raleigh to hear a petition for
a writ of habeas corpus filed by an
agent, of the Southern Railway for
the same purpose. In this eonnec
tion it would be well to remember
that Josephus Daniels alleged in his
Application for habeas corpus that
he wps being rstviii""! o h's lib
erty in violation of the fourteenth
amendment to the Constitution of
the United States. The same alle
gation was made in the petition filed
by Mr. Green. They both sought to
assert a right guaranteed them by
the Constitution of the United States.
An inquiring public would like to
know upon what theory Mr. Daniels
insists hat he should be permitted
to exercise this right and that tlr;
same snould be denied an humble
citizen of his town who was endeav
oring to earn an honest living. In

The foremost advertising virtue is
persistent repetition. One can no
more make a single effort, however
large, serve for a year's publicity,
than he could get physical nourish

dinner.- Printers' Ink.
A Good Joke.
The boys in our neighborhood are
cruel. They chase cats, throw stones
at dogs and torment the squirrels
which stray over from a near-by
park. I, an elderly spinster, in sym
pathy with all living things except,
perhaps, boys am much moved by
such occurrences, so when I saw -i
dzen of these boys throwing sticks
and stones with wild energy into the
boughs of a thick-foliaged tree as !
passed by the other day, I reluctantly
turned back, led by moral duty,
mounted the bank where the boys
were and questioned sternly, "Boys,
at what are you throwing? Is it a
squirrel, is it a cat?"
"No, ma'am," answered a polite
child, "it is a bat."
Now I do not like bats. Do you?
They are said to be fond of tangling
themselves in one's hair.
But led by duty, I conquered my
"Poor bat," said I, "it has a right
to; live."';;: s X :'-r-:''r:,:-.
"Yes. ma'am," responded the po
lite child, "but this is a baseball
Then I looked up into the tree
and sow that it was. Harper's
