SATURDAY, DECEMBER 26, 190&
The greetings of another Christmas
again remind us of the "Peace on earth,
and good will towards mon," which waa
proclaimed to the world more than nine?
teen hundred years ago on the advent
of our Redeemer, and we should rejoice
and be glad at this season of the year
but in a spirit of love and charity
towards everyone, and of thankfulness
for all our blessings in the past and
which we have reason to hope for and
expect in the future if we will strive to
be more like Him whose birth will soon
be celebrated through tho length and
breadth of Christendom.
It is our right to be happy at the
Christmas time and wc will be, if we do
not forfeit it by the lack of that peace
and good will, which is the essence of
all happiness?if we will discard all the
bitterness, jealousies and selfishness
which enter so much in the lives of all
of us and for the time, at least, give
that sympathy and love and help tc
those less fortunate than we are, which
the glad season teaches.
As the season for the exchange ol
gifts among relatives and friends, foi
the renewal of acquaintances and fes
tive cheer, all old and young, shouk
welcome it and we will not only enjoj
it but be profited thereby, if instead o:
indulging in the excesses so often hidden
to it we find in its pleasures, rest am
recreation the stimulus which will lea<
us to a higher and better life- -and whi
does not need it and will not welcome i
if we are made better by it? This i
what Christmas means and the worli
not only needed it centuries ago but w
do to day.
With best wishes to all the readers o
the "Enterprise" for all the comfort
and happiness of a bright and beautifi
holiday season,wherever the ymay bec
whatever their environments, we es
tend the cordial greetings for a Merrj
Merry Christmas.
Is there a Santa Claus? This was th
query of a little girl, with the name c
Virginia, whose little friends had to!
her there is no Santa Claus, which wi
sent to the New York Sun many yeai
ago, and below is given the answer b
that journal, which at once took a plac
among the Christmas classics of tl
language and is printed every year i
the newspapers throughout the land.
"Virginia, your little friends ai
wrong. They have been affected t
the skepticism of a skeptical age. Thc
do not believe except they see. Thc
think that nothing can be which is ni
comprehensible by their little mind
All minds, Virginia, whether they 1
men's or children'3 are little. In th
great universe of ours man is a me
insect, an ant, in his intellect, as cor
pared with the boundless world abo
him, as measured by the intelligen
capable of grasping tha whole of tru
and knowledge.
"Yes, Virginia, there is a San
Claus. He exists as certainly as lo
and generosity and devotion exist, a
you know that they abound and give
your life its highest beauty and jo
Alas! how dreary would be the world
there were no Santa Claus! It woi
be as dreary as if there were no Virg
ias. There would be no childlike fai
then, no poetry, no romance, to ma
tolerable this existence. We shot
have no enjoyment except in sense a
sight. The eternal light with whi
childhood fills the world would be ext
guished.
"Not believe in Santa Claus! Y
might as well not believe in fairi
You might get your papa to hire rn
to watch in all the chimneys on Chri
mas eve to catch Santa Claus, corni
down, what would that prove? Nobe
sees Santa Claus, but that is no si
that there is no Santa Claus. The mi
real things in the world are those ti
neither children nor men can see. I
you ever see fairies dancing on t
lawn? Of course not; but that's
proof that they are not there. Nobe
can convince or imagine all the wond'
that are unseen and unseenable in 1
world.
"You may tear apart the baby's r
tie and see what makes the noise insi
but there is a veil covering the uns(
world which not the strongest man, i
even the united strength of all
strongest men that ever lived, co
tear apart. Only faith, f incy, poet
love, romance, can push aside that c
tain and view and picture the superr
ural beauty and glory beyond. It is
real! Ah, Virginia, in all this wc
there is nothing else real and abidinj
"No Santa Claus! Thank God,
lives forever! A thousand years fi
now,Virginia,nay,ten times ten thous
years from now, he will continue
make glad the heart of childhood."
Members of the Corporation O
mission make most emphatic denial t
any compromise of the rate cases '
suggested by the railroad lawy
They insist that it was merely a <
ference as to procedure and that r<
were not discussed. "The commis:
has no secrets when transacting pu
business and this rate case is the j
lie's business," they declare.

Negro Shot and Killed.
Saturday afternoon last, a short dis?
tance from Onaneock, near the farra
Of Mr. Sydney Hopkins, David Burton
was shot and instantly killed by Clar?
ence Parker.
Parker and Thomas Topping had
been gunning and stopped at the row
ol houses occupied by colored people,
Topping having decided to leave his
gun in one of them until his return
from Onaneock. While Parker was
waiting for him, David Burton came
up driving a mule to an open wagon,
halted, and a conversation at once
began between them. It is said some
pleasantry passed as to what was to
be shot, when Parker raised his gun
and fired, almost blowing Burton's
bead from his shoulders. Parker
claims that he thought he had taken
the cartridge from the gun, and had
no thought or wish of injuringBurton.
Ile was arrested Sunday by Constable
Kellam. All of tho parties are colored
people.
