Comments and Personal Points.
Thomasviile is very popular among
the genial “Knights of the Grip,’’ that,
travel in this direction, and they make
it a point to spend Sunday here as
often as possible. These kindly ieel
ings are fully reciprocated by the peo
pie of Thomasviile.
Wherever one of these knights goes
he carries a ray of sunlight. His heart
and purse are equally open to the calls
of charity; he alone of all the world
will dare to speak familiarly to a sleep
ing car porter or a hotel clerk.
The Knight of the.Grip is a great
admirer of the beautiful, especially a
beautiful order, or a beautiful woman
In short the "knight” lives in perpetu
al day, as he should.
J. W. Walls, the “cracker” wagon
man, is in our midst, “pushing” his
goods for all they are worth. He is a
credit to his hous'. and deserves the
patronage of all good people.
Capf Louis Saloshin, representing
Wellhouse & Son,**)f Atlanta, is in our
city, registered at the Stuart. Capt.
S. is due in Valdosta to day, but he
has fallen a victim of Cupid's wiles,
and is liable to stay here all summer.
“Chief” S. H. Oppenhtimer, of Sa
vannah, is in the city, in charge of
three noted Indian tribes, the Chero-
kees, the Shawnees and the Shenies.
Mr. W. S. Hesse, diamond broker
of Cincinnati, is registered at the
Stuart. Ho is pushing the elite spark
lers that would not bo out of place in
the crowns of royalty.

Building In Thomasviile
The Times-EnterPrise gave in its
yesterday’s issue the capitalized insti
tutions of the city, operating under
charter or otherwise.
It cannot be denied that the. shew
ing made was a most creditable one;
not many towns in the south, or else
where, as for that matter, can show
over half a million dollars invested in
chartered or capitalized corporations.
It was not proper to place in the
list given yesterday several private en
terprises that have done, or are doing,
their part towards improving the town
or developing its resources
First and foremost among these
private enterprises comes the Mitchell
House, being the pioneer in the move
ment that has given Thomasviile such
an enviable reputation as a winter^ re
sort, the Mitchell and its public spirit
ed owner are given the place ofhonor.
The Masury, the Stuart, the. Whiddon,
the new Gulf and a host of boarding
houses all do their part in promoting
the growth ofThotnasville, and they
are’all private enterprises.
While Thomasviile will not have
any buildings erected during the com
ing summer as large as those built in
the past, the building boom has by no
' The new Gulf will be in course of
construction in a few days; work is
going forward on the new Episcopal
church; a new jail will be built during
the year, and Dekle & Cooke are put
ting up a 1 handsome brick store on
lower Broad street.
All over the city new residences are
going up, ranging in price from the
modest cottage to cost §800 to $1,000,
to the more pretentious residence of
three times as much cost
No More Jute Bagging,
The following resolution was uDaui-
mouslv adopted by the Sub-Alliances
of Thomas county, at their meeting
last Thursday. As will be seen, the
Thomas county Alliances are emphat
ic in their determination not to aid
the infamous combine that is seeking
to extort money from their necessities:
“The following resolution was unani
mously passed by the Thomas county
alliance at its session in Thomasviile
on Thursday last.
“Resolved: That we heartily endorse
the action of the State Alliance in re
gard to the use of cotton bagging, and
that we will not use jute bagging un
der any circumstances.”
Publisher! by order of the Alliance.
