be disposed of in a short notice. It is
by all odds the most pretentious pub

the South. From front to back it is
an Atlanta production, lithographic
work, illustrations and all. The mar
velous spirit of 'push that has raised
Atlanta from a heap of ashes and
ruins to be the foremost city iu all
this beautiful Southland, stood ns the

Thomasville National Bank.
Yesterday the comptroller of the
currency issued an order requiring all
the National Banks to prepare a
statement of their conditidn at the
close of business, Monday, 13th. inst.
Our bank was notified yesterday by its
agent in Washington, by wire, and the
(statement appears in this morning’s
paper. This is unquestionably quick
The showing made in the statement
is a fine one. The deposit account,
§110,000, is good for the season and
the slate of business.
The surplus at.d undivided profit
fund, upwards .of $23,000, shows that
the profits of the bank have been
steady and satisfactory since it began
business 21 months ago.
Awarded the Contract.
The Thomasville Variety Works,
Messrs. Reynolds, Hargrave and
Davis, proprietors, have been award
ed the contract for making the im
provements to he made on the home
stead at “Greenwood.” It is under
stood that it is Mr. VauDtizer’s
intention to retain all the characteris
tics that make the house the finest
type of the old tin 0 Southern home
in the state. Its fiuc shrubbery,
wealth of flowers,large and lofty rooms
may never again yield their lasciuatiou
to those to whom for years it was
a loving and lovable home, but it is
peculiarly fortunate that it has fallen
iDto the hands of a gentleman of
taste and means who will make it as
it was in its happiest and brightest
It goes without saying that Messrs.
Reynolds, Hargrave and Davis will
gpe fine judgment and taste iu this
work.,. Thej^have ample-facilities for
doing a splendid job and they wijl
