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. PERSONALS. 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. One pf the brightest and most pop ular amoug th 1 commercial tourists IU at 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. NEW HUII.DINGS. 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 means subsided. ' 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. A. W. Ivey, President. Robert Alexander, Secretary. Likoly to be Corrected. Some days ago the Times-Entek- prise protested, in .the name of tho people of Thomasviile, against the maximum daily temperature given sk: :/ v We are like u log of drill-wood, Tossed on the watery main; „Auo*lier log encounters, Meets, touches, parts again. Thus ’tls with Drummers, Kver on life’s uncertain sea; We meet and greet and sever, Drifting eternally. Then why not tient us kindly, You men ot wealtli and lotc, For soon we’ll meet and sever. To meet again no more. For we, in Mod’s own kingdom Out songs of praise will Ifuni, . And thank our Heavenly Father There’s no merchants there to drum. Bihukss. The Valdosta Videttes’ Fair. The Valdosta Videttes will hold a fair, beginning next Tuesday, 21st, inst., and continuing three days. The fair is to raise funds to equip the members of the company.

Cannot the Thomasviile Guards send down a delegation to get pointers? ie signal eferviee. Vol unteer observer Bond u rim t has re ceived a letter from the signal officer in Savannah, enclosing the - Times- Enterprise article and asking Jjim if tho temperature, faken when at tl.o passeuger'depot.was misleading. Mr. Bondurnnt will corroborate the sj^ttc- nicnt made in these columns and it is likely that Thomasviile will be set right iu this matter. South Georgia College Commence ment. • The commencement exercises of this college will open Sunday, June 23rd, with sermon from Dr. C. E, Smith, of Cedar Keys, Fla. The Baccaulaureate address will be deliv ered, Monday night, by Hon. P. W. Meldrim, of Savannah. The exercises will continue till Thursday night. A High Compliment. The Board of Visitors to the State University pay a high compliment to Capt. C. M. Snelling, formerly con nected with the South Georgia Col lege, now commandant of cadets at Athens. The compliment is-the more striking because Capt. SnellingV de partment is the only one connected with the University that receives favorable notice. Miss jAddic McClellan, Jackson street, has the Centennial number of Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper, which gives a very realistic conception of the celebration or tho occasion. Mr. £. H, Analey,one’<f ourr ;ruck growers, shipper fa ks of turnip seed to Philadelphia yesterday. Tho Times-Enterprise is delight erl, at all times, to note the prosperity of Thomasvillo 'enterprises, Mr. L. Schmidt, soda water manufacturer, is pushing his work with an euergy that will surely briDg a large measure of success. He is shipping large quanti ties of his goods to towns in every di- rectioi.

(l8( Hargrave and Davis,' enterprises in our midst a canning establishment. It would seem to he uunecessary to say a word as to the profits that could be earned by such establishment. They pay, and pay well, elsewhere, and us Thomas- ville is in the habit of making a suc cess out ofnverything she undertakes, there is no reason to’suppose that a canning establishment would prove exception to tho rule. 1 fair city. .Mr. Storm, of the firm of Straltau Storm, of New York, spent yester day forenoon in the city. His firm owns large tobacco plantations near Quincy, and Mr. Storm goos there to look after them.
